Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

  • New Code Vein Trailer Focuses on Executioner Boss

    New Code Vein Trailer Focuses on Executioner Boss

    This is your only spoiler warning.

    A new trailer for Code Vein came out a little bit ago today. This new trailer, courtesy of Bandai Namco, focuses on yet another boss. It joins the trailer released last month that also provided a look at one of the Code Vein bosses.

    Today's video focuses on the Invading Executioner. She makes use of a big scythe for quick attacks. The Invading Executioner also makes use of water for some area-of-effect attacks, in addition to being used in order to close the distance between herself and you, the player.

  • Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    This seems unnecessary.

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a battle royale game that came out in 2017 as an Early Access title. In all this time, nobody once seriously questioned why 100 people were jumping out of an airplane to murder each other in remote locations. Apparently, somebody at PUBG Corp. finally raised that question because the game is getting a backstory for its upcoming fourth season.

    It is every bit as unnecessary as you are probably imagining it to be. An official "Season 4 Cinematic Trailer" for PUBG opens with a shot...

  • Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    No other changes mentioned.

    Nintendo revealed that they are releasing an updated version of their regular Nintendo Switch soon. The only mentioned differences are the improved battery life when compared to the original model of the Switch. That is it. There are no other differences mentioned.

    The good news is that the battery life upgrades are not insignificant. At present, Nintendo says that the current Switch (HAC-001) has between 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life, depending on what you're playing. The new model (HAC-001(-01)) will have 4.5 to...

  • Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Plus, try it free for one month.

    Back at E3, Ubisoft announced that they would soon launch their own subscription service. This service that they're calling Uplay+ would function much like EA's Access and Origin Access programs in that you will be able to pay a monthly fee to gain access to an ever growing library of old and new titles from the publisher. Really, the only major differences that I can see here is the fact that Uplay+ may not include a discount on game purchases like EA has with their Access program.

    Today, Ubisoft revealed their...

  • No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.

    A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

    Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally shot those rumors down but not before letting them simmer and stew for a...

    Dust2 Lives on with Today's Release of Bizarre PC/VR/AR Title DUSTNET

    Play Dust2 like you've never played it before.

    DUSTNET is a new multiplayer deathmatch game that simultaneously resurrects and completely reimagines Dust2. And yes, when I say "Dust2" I am very much talking about de_dust2 from Counter-Strike. Only, this isn't Counter-Strike, or is it?

    DUSTNET allows cross-platform play between those on PC, those playing in VR, and those using augmented reality (AR). Players go back to the ruins of an old server that is forever stuck on de_dust2. The game has changed. The world is a sandbox and what...

  • Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Stop monkeying around.

    On October 29, 2019, those on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will get to pick up and purchase and play Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. This same game will also hit the PC via Steam at some point during Winter 2019.

    This was originally released for the Nintendo Wii back in 2006. Of course, back then such a thing like HD was a mere dream. Folks back then were stuck at pitiful resolutions like 480p or even 576i. Ewwww. Could you even imagine? Thankfully this HD release in 2019 will include updated graphics,...
