G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...

Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

Then quickly announces this will happen again.

If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
 

Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

No solid ETA on when they will be either.

If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...
 

Review: The Sinking City (PC)

That sinking feeling.

Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • Critical Consensus: Crackdown 3, Far Cry New Dawn, Jump Force, and Metro Exodus


    Tomorrow is a massive release day for games. For some reason, publishers and developers decided that people who play video games would need a lot of joy in their lives come February 15. I simply cannot fathom why.

    Needless to say, there are four major titles being released tomorrow and the reviews for all of them are now in. Well, almost all of them. Though Anthem is also coming out tomorrow, it is only being released for those that have EA Access, Origin Access, or Origin Access Premier. Reviews for that game have not gone live yet. We'll go through each of tomorrow's releases...

  • God of War Won the 22nd Annual DICE Awards

    God of War Won the 22nd Annual DICE Awards


    The headline reads that God of War won all of the 22nd annual DICE awards as if they took home every award at the show. Well, the game and the team at Sony Santa Monica kind of, almost did precisely that.

    Much like our very own and very prestigious game of the year, DICE also determined that God of War was the best game of 2018. In total, God of War won nine different awards at the show. The only other game to take home more than one award last night was Celeste, which won two awards including the Independent Game of the Year.

    The full list of winners in each...

  • Civilization VI: Gathering Storm Now Available

    Civilization VI: Gathering Storm Now Available


    Civilization VI, of the Sid Meier variety, has a new expansion out today. It's called Gathering Storm, which is a good thing because this expansion is mostly about a very active planet with many environmental challenges.

This is being called the "largest ever" expansion released in the entire history of the Civilization franchise. Because in addition to the whole environmental stuff,...

  • The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening Remake Announced for Nintendo Switch

    The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening Remake Announced for Nintendo Switch


    Nintendo shocked their fans today with a surprise announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch. The classic was originally released for the Game Boy over 25 years ago.

    The game is targeting a 2019 release exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. A bit more than a simple remake, this release of Links Awakening will be closer to a "re-imagining" of the original. The most obvious change is the unique visual style seen in the gameplay sections of the announcement trailer.

    I'm sure we'll have more on this one in the weeks...
