True to Valve tradition, today's release is actually a little bit later than initially expected. During its initial announcement in March, Valve said Counter-Strike 2 would be out in summer.

    This update is expected to drop in the first half of the week starting February 12.

    Please let this be a teaser for The Evil Within 3. Please!

    Sadly, The Evil Within 3 has not (yet) been announced by series developer Tango Gameworks. However, if a newly discovered Easter egg tucked away in their latest release Hi-Fi Rush is any indication, an announcement may be coming soon.

    Hi-Fi Rush is already rather full of references to The Evil Within, as GamesRadar+ has kindly pointed out. While all of those other references were fun little nods to the franchise,...

    Professor Layton is Coming Back via the Nintendo Switch

The last actual "Professor Layton" game came out for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013/2014.

    Well, it looks like Level-5 is bringing the good Professor back as they announced Professor Layton and The...

  • Performance Improvements Promised for Forspoken

    Performance Improvements Promised for Forspoken

    Though, there is no date yet.

    Forspoken is a game that certainly has some performance woes on both the PlayStation 5 and PC. The lofty hardware requirements on PC certainly paint a picture of a game that has been poorly optimized. Trying to play the game on PC at 1440p with just 60FPS on a 1080 Ti wasn't exactly what I would consider "a fun time." Settings had to be lowered considerably and FSR had to be set to Ultra Performance to get anywhere near a stable 60FPS. Even then,...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
