EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

    Someday You'll Return Delayed

    You won't return delayed, the game is called... oh forget it.

The game was originally supposed to ship on April 14, 2020 but has since been pushed back a few weeks to May 5, 2020. The reason for the delay? If you guessed the coronavirus, you would be correct.

    PONG is Becoming an RPG

    Yes, that Pong.

    Atari announced PONG Quest, a new role-playing game that is based off of the classic PONG. If you are wondering just how they can make an RPG out of PONG, you certainly aren't alone. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that this is an April Fools joke, right? I thought so too! I really did. And then I kept reading the press release I was sent. Then I saw the trailer reveal (seen below) and the key art in the press kit. It was only then, after I looked at everything,...

    Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

    Budget that bandwidth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Everyone is at home. If not, they probably should be. 2020 has been crazy wild and it's still only March. One of the things people have been doing more of, is playing games. What else is there to do when you're under quarantine? Work? HA! Screw that!

    The problem with being at home all the time like this, is that the network in your home, country, or even globally can be impacted significantly. People have more time now...
