System Shock and Skatebird Among Over a Dozen Games with New Limited Time Demos

In honor of The Game Awards, about a dozen games released limited time demos on Steam.

The first project for the new Cloud Chamber is the next entry in the BioShock series.

2K just announced today that they have opened up a new game development studio under their publishing umbrella. The new studio is called Cloud Chamber and will have not one but two different locations for their operations.

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...
 

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

    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
