System Shock and Skatebird Among Over a Dozen Games with New Limited Time Demos

In honor of The Game Awards, about a dozen games released limited time demos on Steam.

We already knew that.

MLB The Show is No Longer a PlayStation Exclusive

Soon, MLB The Show will be available on more than just Sony's platforms.

It has just been announced that starting as soon as 2021's release, MLB The Show will no longer be a PlayStation platform exclusive. Though other platforms have not yet been specified, both the official Nintendo and Xbox Twitter accounts were quick to comment on this new development.

New 2K Studio Confirmed to be Working on Next BioShock Game

The first project for the new Cloud Chamber is the next entry in the BioShock series.

2K just announced today that they have opened up a new game development studio under their publishing umbrella. The new studio is called Cloud Chamber and will have not one but two different locations for their operations. The team will operate both out of 2K's San Francisco Bay Area HQ in Novato, CA in addition to a new location in Montreal, Quebec. This marks the first Canadian office for 2K.

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

    Rich Get Richer - Twitch Adds Microtransactions to Partner Chat

    Starting today, Twitch is rolling out a test of its new microtransaction system that they call Cheering. Cheering allows the chat in partnered streams to "cheer" for a favorite moment during a stream. Cheering allows the chat to donate any number of Cheer Bits to the streamer.

    These bits equate to a monetary donation made for the streamer in lieu (or in addition to) the usual support of subscribing or donating directly.

    What are some of the benefits of Cheering?

  • Oculus Removes Hardware Check DRM

    Oculus Removes Hardware Check DRM

    Oculus has removed the hardware check for Oculus "exclusive" games. This annoying bit of DRM, introduced back in May, prevented non-Oculus users from playing games on other VR hardware (such as the Vive) and only allowed Oculus VR headsets to play purchased titles. People, namely those working on Revive, found ways around this that opened the door to easily accessible piracy. One of the more popular methods modified the software to allow sideloading of games. Revive's developer said that he didn't want to go that route but he said he had no choice. Fortunately, O...

    New Professor Layton Won't Focus on Professor Layton

    We have a bit of an odd one here for you today. Level-5 confirmed that there is a new Professor Layton game coming. However, it will be a Professor Layton game that doesn't feature the title character as the main protagonist. In fact, it won't even feature Layton's son, Alfendi Layton.

    The full reveal for the game won't come until July 27 during Level-5 Vision 2016. However, Level-5 CEO, Akihiro Hino, did show off some new artwork for the game for this pre-announcement announcement.
