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.

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...

    No Man's Sky Reportedly Delayed Until at Least July

    I hope you weren't too attached to that June 21 release date for No Man's Sky because it's looking like the game has been delayed. According to sources close to Kotaku, the game has been pushed back to "at least" July or August.

A second source, someone working at GameStop, said that their store was instructed to cover up any mention of the June 21 release date. The dates were covered up with a "Coming Soon" sticker, which is shown in one of the two images below.

    Racist Stellaris Mod Pulled from Steam Workshop

    The "European Phenotype and Names Only (White Humans)" mod for Stellaris was pulled from the Steam Workshop by Paradox Interactive. The mod aimed to make the human characters in the game more "European," which is to say to make them all "white."

    A Paradox spokesperson issued this statement to Eurogamer about the matter.
    "We shipped the game originally with an accurate representation of humans, that is to say diverse in both ethnicity and personality. We embrace the idea that players mod the game to best represent how they want to play, we

    Umbrella Corps Adding Raccoon City and Police Station Maps


    If you're going to pick up Umbrella Corps (sound warning) on June 21, you may be interested to know that Capcom is including two classic focused maps: Raccoon City and Police Station.
    Two new maps offer a spin on familiar locales from the classic Resident Evil games and will be featured in multiplayer modes as well as The Experiment single player mode. The Raccoon City map features wide open city streets contrasted against a claustrophobic maze-like sewer system underneath. Players can take cover behind vehicles above ground, while cutting
