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.

For those that don't know,...

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...

    Gears of War: Ultimate Edition Spotted on Windows 10 Store

    Windows Central noticed that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was spotted on the Windows 10 Store earlier today. The entry has since been removed but it showed a near $1,000 (USD) price tag (I'm going to take a wild guess and say this won't be the final price) along with a description and system requirements.

    Valve Increases Every CS:GO Major to $1 Million Prize Pool

    Valve is starting to show the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene a bit more love. Starting with MLG Columbus 2016, every CS:GO Major Championship will have a prize pool of $1 million.
    When we announced the first CS:GO Major Championship in 2013, we hoped the Majors would be rallying points for the community, tent-pole events that could draw new audiences and amplify the value of all events. Since then, the professional CS:GO community has been growing at an incredible rate. CS:GO tournaments are now among the largest esports events in t

  • Twitch Officially Adds Chat Replay to Recorded Videos

    Twitch Officially Adds Chat Replay to Recorded Videos

    If you missed a stream and wanted to watch it via highlight or VOD later on, you did not get the full experience. Let's face it, for as terrible as the Twitch chat can be in many cases, there are still times where smaller streams have a chat that you enjoy. Sadly, VODs and highlights don't include that part of the experience. However that has all changed now as Twitch has finally added in Chat Replay to all recorded videos. This new feature will be immediately familiar to those that used the Rechat browser extension. In fact, I am under the impression that Twitch hired...

    6.4 Million People Played The Division Beta

    Ubisoft announced that the open beta for The Division marked the "biggest beta ever for a new game brand on current gen platforms. That's a milestone, right? I wonder where it stacks up against all betas on all platforms, though.

    Anyway, Ubisoft said that 6.4 million people played in this past weekend's open beta for The Division.
    "On average, players spent around 5 hours as an activated sleeper agent journeying through The Division's open world. "The Dark Zone proved to be particularly popular, with players spending around 2-hours in
