You ever write a three-page review for an energy supplement?

In early May 2024, 5-hour ENERGY (hereto after shown as 5-hour Energy) released a new Gamer Shot line of energy drink supplements.

Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...

Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition.

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider Trailer and Screenshot Reveals; Nvidia and Nixxes Collaborating on PC Version

    Yes, this should have gone up yesterday. It didn't because I wasn't feeling all that well so I hope you'll excuse me for this. However, yesterday Shadow of the Tomb Raider had a brand spanking new reveal trailer. It featured no actual in-game footage. It was in-engine, but not in-game. Bummer.

    Eastward Announced by Chucklefish and Pixpil


    Pixpil is the developer and Chucklefish is the publisher on the just announced game, Eastward. If Chucklefish sounds familiar, it's probably because they're the studio that developed games like Starbound and published games like Risk of Rain and Stardew Valley, to name a few. If Pixpil doesn't sound familiar, it's probably because they are a small studio based out of Shanghai and Eastward is their first game. Chucklefish provided a good bit of information today on Eastbound that includ...
