Battlefield 5 'Firestorm' Battle Royale Reveal Trailer and First Details


The upcoming battle royale mode for Battlefield 5 was finally revealed today thanks to an all-new trailer. The trailer doesn't show actual gameplay, but it does offer an "in-engine" look at some of the antics you and your crew will get up to.

I suppose I should preface this by saying Firestorm is the name of this new mode. It's slated to be added to Battlefield 5, free of charge to everyone that owns the game, on March 25.

Firestorm finds 64 players battling it out to be the last one standing in a match. The map size is said to be "ten times larger...
 

Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...
 

Stela is a New 'Cinematic Platformer' from SkyBox Labs


SkyBox Labs, a development studio that is helping to co-develop Halo Infinite with 343 Industries, just announced a new title today. Their new game is called Stela and it's being billed as a "cinematic platformer." It's looking for a 2019 release on the Xbox One and PC and will make its debut at GDC 2019 as part of Microsoft's ID@Xbox Developer Showcase.

Players will have to overcome challenges and alter the terrain in order to solve puzzles and make their way past various enemies. The first trailer for the game was shown off today. More information will eventually...
 

Judgment to Ship with Two Sets of English Subtitles


Building off of yesterday's news of a June 25th release date for Judgment in the West, comes word today that the game will ship with two different English subtitles to choose from. This was revealed as part of today's new media release for Judgment on the PlayStation Blog.

The Yakuza localization team already does an absolutely tremendous job, but it looks like they're trying to up the ante with Judgment. The idea to have two separate English subtitles ties in to the fact that Judgment will have English audio in addition to the original Japanese audio. Those who played the...
 

EA to Skip Annual Press Conference at E3 2019


EA announced today that they will not hold their regular EA Play press conference this year. EA Play is still going to happen, it's just that there isn't going to be a press conference to kick it off like we're used to. Instead, they will focus on having "multiple live streams" that they plan to air during EA Play.

EA now joins Sony in their decision to forego the annual press conferences at or around E3 time. Sony announced back in November 2018 that they were not going to hold an E3 2019 conference. So far, it seems as though Microsoft and Ubisoft are still going...

  • Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April

    Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April


    The cardboard industry is about to get another big boom in April. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for the Nintendo Switch this week. It's slated to hit stores on April 12 and includes a basic kit, a big kit, and two optional expansions.

    From the descriptions of the kit, it sounds a lot like Google Cardboard with the added benefit of having various motion controls added in via the Switch Controllers. For kids, it's probably going to be amazing.

    As with the other Labo kits, you will have to build the VR Kit following the provided instructions. Depending...

  • Players Discover that Anthem's Most Powerful Weapons are the Ones You Start With


    Today, a little "PSA" went up on the Anthem subreddit that says clearly that the level 1 weapons players start the game with are the most powerful weapons in the game.

    If you think that doesn't make much sense, you would be correct but there are multiple confirmations showing that this is indeed what is going on. Reddit user YeetLordSupreme found that a level 1 common Defender rifle can take down a basic enemy in just four shots. Meanwhile, they found that their level 45 masterwork "Ralner's Blaze" rifle takes six shots to take down the very same enemy.

    This is in spite of the basic weapon showing damage of just 286 per shot compared to the 1184 damage per shot with the level 45 weapon. ...

    Counter-Strike Update Reduces CPU Usage by up to 40%



    Valve just released a new update for Counter-Strike: Global OFfensive today that should provide a nice boost to performance for some players. Included in today's update is an optional command line switch that can reduce CPU usage by up to 40%.

    Don't forget that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a free-to-play game available on Steam. You can bump yourself up to "CS:GO Prime" status for about $15.

  • Judgment to Release in Americas and Europe on June 25

    Judgment to Release in Americas and Europe on June 25


    Late last night, Sega announced that Judgment will be released in the Americas and throughout Europe on June 25. This reveal came last night via Twitter along with a few additional details about a pre-order bonus.

    Fans of the Yakuza games will want to keep an eye on this one. Why's that? Because it's set in the same world as the Yakuza franchise, made by the same developers, and contains some of the same gameplay elements. However, this is not a Yakuza game, it's merely a spin-off.

    You play as detective Takayuki Yagami who is investigating a serial murder case...

  • Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam

    Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam


    It took some time, but Valve has finally decided that a visual novel "game" about raping women during a zombie apocalypse maybe isn't a good fit for Steam.

    The game is (was?) called Rape Day and the premise is pretty much what I said in the line above. The game glorified verbally harassing women, killing them, and raping them throughout the story. The game was under review from Valve and, after multiple articles went up about the game, did Valve see fit to pull its existence from Steam.

    To be clear, Rape Day was never up for sale on Steam. It had a Steam...

    Microsoft Reportedly Releasing an All-Digital Xbox One in May


    The "all digital future" may be closer than you think if a new rumor is to be believed. According to Brad Sams from Thurrott.com, Microsoft is getting ready to release an Xbox One S console that doesn't have a disc drive.

    Sams says that the internal codename for this device is "Xbox Maverick" with the public facing name being "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition." Pre-orders are apparently slated to go live mid-April with a release possibly coming as early as May.

    Beyond being able to purchase games directly through the Microsoft Store...

    The Division 2 Launch Trailer


    With Tom Clancy's The Division 2 coming out in just 10 days (March 15, 2019), it seems like a wholly appropriate time for a launch trailer. On March 15th, The Division 2 will take PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players to our nation's capital, Washington, D.C.

    You can pick up The Division 2 for the PC from either the Epic Games Store (affiliate link) or from the Ubisoft Store. As it stands, The Division 2 is sadly not available through Steam. ...

    Destiny 2 'Season of the Drifter' Update 2.2.0 Changelog

    We all drift down here.


    That's right, Destiny 2's "Season of the Drifter" is out today and that means a new update for the game has come out. Today, Bungie released the 2.2.0 update that contains all sorts of changes and additions and probably nerfs to your favorite class that used to be able to skate around at mach speeds but can no longer do so because "screw you, Zips!"

    What was I saying?

    Oh right, Season of the Drifter is the latest content release for Destiny 2. Let's just look at the changelog before I forget what I was doing again. ...
