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.

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...
 

Blizzard Loses Major Sponsor After Ban on 'Free Hong Kong' Hearthstone Pro

Blizzard continues to feel the impact of their ban of Hearthstone player Blitzchung.

It has been noticed by a number of Hearthstone fans that Mitsubishi's logo was no longer showing up during a recent Asia Pacific tournament for the game. Those on Reddit first noticed the missing logo. From there, it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that they have pulled their sponsorship from Blizzard.

This confirmation was made to The Daily Beast. Specifically, the branch that pulled its sponsorship from Blizzard was Mitsubishi Motors Taiwan, the Taiwanese branch...

  • CEO and Chairman of Mad Catz Resign One Day Ahead of Earnings Report

    CEO and Chairman of Mad Catz Resign One Day Ahead of Earnings Report

    This can't be a good sign that things are going well for peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz. Both the CEO, Darren Richardson, chairman Thomas Brown, and VP of Business Affairs Whitney Peterson have all parted ways from the company.

    Titanfall 2 Developer Confirms Single-Player Campaign and TV Series

    A writer on the Titanfall 2 development team confirmed to Forbes that the game will include a single-player campaign and a tie-in TV series. The writer, Jesse Stern, has credits that include Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

    It's also important to note that Titanfall 2 will not be exclusive to the Xbox platform. While there is still no confirmation that it's also coming to the PlayStation 4, it could almost be safely assumed that's what is being hinted at.
