Microsoft Confirms Free Online Multiplayer for Halo Infinite

Confirmed after a short bout as a rumor.

Microsoft confirmed the short-lived rumor that Halo Infinite would have free multiplayer. Not only that, but they also confirmed that Halo Infinite, at least the multiplayer component, will support 120fps on Xbox Series X. I'm sure that will also hold true for the PC release as well. Sorry Xbox One owners, you can't handle all those delicious frames. ...
 

Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions. Users were able to trick Steam into thinking they lived in one region where a price of a game was more favorable to them due to exchange rates. This had the unfortunate side-effect of developers and publishers having to increase prices in these regions to put a stop to those using VPNs...

Metacritic Finally Does Away with Day One User Scores

Perhaps done in an effort to suppress user score review bombing.

According to a new report by Paul Tassi, via Forbes, Metacritic seems to be doing away with allowing users to submit scores on games until at least a day after release. Tassi notes that user scores for the just released Ghost of Tsushima only has critical scores posted for the game. The user scores are currently showing a message that user reviews will be permitted starting July 18 at 12PM (PT).

    Details on what this means were not shared publicly. However, it could be inferred by what was meant by "abusing matchmaking." This could be anything from buying accounts that...

    Alex Wesker and Old Man Spencer Return in Resident Evil Resistance

    Details on new maps and playable characters.

    New details were revealed today for Resident Evil Resistance, the upcoming asymmetrical 4v1 co-op game from Capcom. The last we heard about the game was that it would be bundled with the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake as a "free" bonus. We still don't know if Capcom had always intended to bundle Resistance with Resident Evil 3 or if the decision was made from a lack of faith in it being able to sell well on its own. Whatever the...

  • Conan Chop Chop Delayed

    Conan Chop Chop Delayed

    The very real hack-and-slash has been pushed back slightly.

    Conan Chop Chop initially began life as an apparent April Fools joke back in 2019. Nope, it was very much a real video game that was really in development from Mighty Kingdom and set to be published by Funcom. It has a cute art style, some tried and true hack-and-slash style gameplay, and co-op support for up to four players. We talked a bit about it when Funcom dished the first details back in June of 2019, if you recall....

    Square Enix Delays Outriders as New Platforms Added

    Good news, bad news time.

    Square Enix revealed that Outriders will be pushed back until a Holiday 2020 release window. However, alongside this unfortunate delay news comes word that the People Can Fly developed title is also working on PlayStation 5 and Xbox releases. Yes, that would be an Xbox Series X (Xbox SeX) announcement there, not an Xbox One, and not an OG Xbox. I'm already sick of this console's name.

    But it's also coming out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One...

    Eric Chahi and his studio Pixel Reef are readying a new sandbox mode for their PlayStation VR game, Paper Beast.

    Valve Reintroduces Steam Soundtracks with a New Sale and Features

    NOW that's what I call music!

    Valve is bringing back Steam Soundtracks in a big way today. More accurately: Valve already brought back Steam Soundtracks a little while ago is being improved big time today. The Soundtrack section that some of you knew and perhaps even love already made its return as a dedicated category in the Steam Library. To further push this Soundtrack section, Valve is bolstering it today with some improved functionality.

    On top of that, there is a...
