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.

For those that don't know,...

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...

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...

  • The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    Docked mode is a bit better at 720p.

    When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition was announced for the Nintendo Switch this week, it was met with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. Fans were a bit worried about what sacrifices had to be made to the game's visuals to get a game as resource hungry as The Witcher 3. Even consoles like the PlayStation 4 struggled to maintain an acceptable framerate in the game at its launch.

    Admittedly, CD Projekt RED made some significant improvements to get nearly every platform running The Witcher 3...

  • New Super Lucky's Tale Announced for Nintendo Switch

    New Super Lucky's Tale Announced for Nintendo Switch

    The third game in the Lucky saga.

    First, we were given Lucky's Tale VR for the Oculus Rift. It was a typical platformer that you played using your Oculus headset, giving you a very unique view of the game and environment. Then, we had Super Lucky's Tale, a non-VR sequel to the original VR title that came out for the Xbox One and Windows 10. Now, Nintendo Switch owners are about to get New Super Lucky's Tale.

    New Super Lucky's Tale is a Nintendo Switch release that is a re-imagining of the original Super Lucky's Tale. It's being worked on by Playful...

  • Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    Outpost Mode Now Live as Latest Weekly Battlefield V Mode

    This mode places a larger emphasis on teamwork and building, not murder.

    DICE released the latest weekly game mode for Battlefield V earlier today. It's called Outpost and it will be live from today through to next week. It is a 64-player game type playable on Arras and Mercury.

  • Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    Genesis Noir Explores the Big Bang and a Love Triangle Gone Wrong

    A story of romance, black holes, and jazz music.

    Genesis Noir was revealed this past weekend during the PC Gaming Show at E3. It is a unique looking game that will have players exploring themes of romance and science. It explores the idea of black holes and love. It takes place before, during, and after the Big Bang. No, it doesn't have anything to do with the terrible TV show, nor does it have a laugh track, but it does have psychedelic jazz music.

    Genesis Noir is hard to explain for those of us who haven't played it. It's better to take a look...

  • Espire 1: VR Operative Announced for PC VR Headsets and PlayStation VR

    Espire 1: VR Operative Announced for PC VR Headsets and PlayStation VR

    It's virtually Metal Gear Solid.

    Digital Lode and publisher Tripwire Interactive announced Espire 1: VR Operative this past week at E3 2019. The VR title utilizes new methods of moving in VR to nearly eliminate the feeling of motion sickness. Espire 1: VR Operative is a game that, at least on its surface, looks like a VR take on a certain tactical espionage action game. That is to say, it's a stealth action title.

    The game is currently in development for VR devices on the PC in addition to the PlayStation VR. The game is looking to be released...
