Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

No, Starfield and Indiana Jones are not going multi-platform any time soon.

The heads of Xbox stayed true to their word and were indeed a part of a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast.

    Review: Kingdom Come: Deliverance (PC)

    I don't remember history being this buggy.
    If there is one area that video games come up short in, it's when they attempt to tackle real-life history. Specifically, games come up well short in being historically accurate without also including a healthy dose of embellishment or suspension of disbelief. In nearly all of the games that focus on real-world history, you almost always play as some overpowered jack-of-all-trades. Yes, this includes games and franchises such as Call of D...

    Prey Twitter is Teasing Something

    The Twitter account for Prey seems to be hinting at something. It's probably a bit too soon to suggest it's a full-blown Prey 2, but it's something. I am mostly expecting this to be something akin to the Death of an Outsider release that came out as a supplemental release for Dishonored.

    At the very least, it looks like whatever it is will be taking us to the Moon.

    Far Cry 5 Trailer Takes the Fight Against Cultists to the Mountains

    A new Far Cry 5 trailer shows off some fresh gameplay. Specifically, it shows off some gameplay taking place in the mountains of Hope County. No, this isn't Far Cry 4, but I can see how you would be confused.

    These are the Whitetail Mountains, an area full of trees, ziplines, and plenty of locations to snipe some evil, gun-loving cultists.
    Montana's mountain country is a paradise for stealthy players, with plenty of forests to hide in and wingsuit-friendly cliffs for

  • Poll: What is 2024's Biggest Gaming Disappointment So Far?
    by Shawn Zipay
    It's AAAA vs WB.

    March isn't even over yet and we've already seen a couple of stinkers come out from major gaming studios. While we tend to focus on the surprise hits or quality titles in these polls, this time it's a little bit different.

    Between the Rocksteady developed live-service Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and the "AAAA" quality Ubisoft developed Skull and Bones: Which is the bigger disappointment for you?
