Review: 5-hour Energy Gamer Shot

You ever write a three-page review for an energy supplement?

In early May 2024, 5-hour ENERGY (hereto after shown as 5-hour Energy) released a new Gamer Shot line of energy drink supplements. We got some news about it because this is a video game website that posts video game related news. That is how these things work. These 5-hour Energy Gamer Shots are available in three flavors: Pineapple Charge, Rocket Raspberry, and Apple Bash. Unless things have suddenly changed in the fe...
 

Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

TikTok Ban Signed Into Law by President Biden

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...
 

Ubisoft Pulls Licenses for The Crew, Makes the Game Completely Inaccessible to Buyers

From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

From announcing a $130 edition of Star Wars Outlaws to pulling game licenses from those that bought The Crew, Ubisoft sure is on a roll this week.

The Crew was Ubisoft's open-world racing game that was pulled from sale back in December 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Ubisoft shut down the online servers for The Crew. This effectively made the game unplayable across all platforms, including: PC,...
 

Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition. Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 Surpasses $725 Million in 3 Days

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Surpasses $725 Million in 3 Days

    Red Dead Redemption 2 has apparently achieved the biggest opening weekend of all time across all forms of entertainment. This at least what Rockstar is telling me and why would they lie about their own game release? Do you really think someone would do that? How distrusting you are. So what does "biggest opening weekend of all time" really mean? Well, it means that Red Dead Redemption 2 had the biggest opening weekend in retail sell-through across all media types. It also had the second ...

  • Review: Call of Cthulhu (PC)

    Review: Call of Cthulhu (PC)

    Choices matter?
    Call of Cthulhu places you in the shoes of Edward Pierce, a private investigator that falls firmly in the overused trope of being one drink away from full blown alcoholism. Pierce is a man with a mysterious past and, apparently, a pre-destined future. A future that finds him headed towards Darkwater Island in an attempt to get some concrete answers as to what really happened to the Hawkins family. Was it a simple accident that consumed the lives of a mother, father,...

    It was revealed today that 2B from Nier: Automata is joining the fighting roster for Soulcalibur VI. The trailer, seen below, reveals that a lot of her combat abilities and moves have been successfully brought over to the combat arena. She has a lot of sword moves and even some blasts from her floating turret. In addition, it seems as though there may be some additional Nier: Automata goodies coming to Soulcalibur 6 in addition to 2B. The end of the trailer seems to give a little hint of thi...

    Get the First Look at Sean Bean in HITMAN 2

    We already saw the real life Sean Bean promoting his appearance in HITMAN 2, but we have yet to see the digital version of him. At least we haven't seen him until right now.

    As a little reminder, Sean Bean assumes the role of Mark Faba, the first elusive target that Agent 47 is going after in HITMAN 2.

    My Hero One's Justice Released Today on Consoles and PC

    If you aren't in the mood for some Wild West action today, you may be interested instead in picking up My Hero One's Justice from Bandai Namco. The game, out today for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam is based off of the "hit weekly Shonen Jump manga and anime series." From what I gather, this game focuses on action, complete with various super powers, and squad abilities.

    Indie Game Red Dead Redemption 2 Released Today

    A little game called Red Dead Redemption 2 was released today for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

    Alan Wake Returns to Steam Where You Can Get it for Just $3

    Alan Wake is finally back on Steam. Remedy made the big announcement earlier today via Twitter. The company notes that Microsoft even helped them out when it came to renegotiating the rights to the licensed music that resulted in the game getting pulled in the first place. The return to Steam is met with a massive sale that drops the price to just $3 (USD). Even if you aren't a huge fan of the genre, you kind of shouldn't pass this up for just 3 bucks. I largely didn't like Alan Wake but ev...
