Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard in Deal Worth Almost $70 Billion

The dream of Candy Crush on Game Pass is that much closer to a reality.

Microsoft is a stone's throw away from finalizing a deal for the purchase of Activision Blizzard. The deal sees Microsoft picking up the Call of Duty and Candy Crush developer for a staggering $68.7 billion (USD). Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer spilled the beans in a new posting at the Xbox Wire earlier today.

This deal seems to have been made at the "perfect" time, at least for Microsoft....
 

Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises.

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

Peter Molyneux's Next Scam is a Blockchain Business Sim

I'm seriously already tired of this.

Grifter and master of hyperbole, Peter Molyneux, just announced his newest "game." It's called Legacy and it will be the first foray for the beguiled creator into the world of blockchain gaming. Legacy will be built entirely around the idea of blockchain technologies, NFTs, and "crypto gaming."

This weekend at the Gala Games' Galaverse in Las Vegas, Molyneux announced Legacy to the world. He's calling it a "blockchain...

    Will be available day one on Game Pass.

    Shredders is a new snowboarding game coming to the Xbox Series X|S this December and launching day one on Xbox Game Pass.

    The basic idea behind Shredders is that you will be trying to earn an invitation to an exclusive snowboarding event. To do so, you will be pulling off tricks and trying to combo your way to the hearts and minds of judges. You will need to "master the art of park riding, backcountry, rails, and massive kickers"...

    Facebook Bringing Ads to Oculus Quest Apps

    This is fucked up.

    According to a new report from The Verge, Facebook will soon place ads within Oculus Quest apps. Over the next several weeks, ads will begin appearing in games like Blaston from Resolution Games in addition to two other apps that have yet to be named. Facebook says that they will "expand" the system based on user feedback. It claims that they are aiming to create a "self-sustaining platform" for VR development.

    It's the OTHER RPG about high school students with special powers.

    Shin Megami Tensei V had a new showing this week during Nintendo's E3 conference.

    Mario Party Superstars Announced

    Features a number of classic boards and minigames.

    On October 29, Mario Party Superstars will be released for the Nintendo Switch. This release is more of a remaster than a fully new game. I say this because Mario Party Superstars features five classic boards from the Nintendo 64 era. There is also a collection of 100 minigames from across the entirety of the Mario Party series.

    The best part about this release? All of the game modes can be played online with friends! Pre-orders are open right now for Mario Party Superstars through the Nintendo eShop. ...

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 Coming 2022

    Nintendo provided a new look at the game today.

    During their E3 Direct, Nintendo showed off a little bit more for the upcoming sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Interestingly, they aren't exactly calling it Breath of the Wild 2 in their press release, so it may end up having a different name entirely when release rolls around.

    Speaking of which, Nintendo says that this sequel will be released on the Nintendo Switch in 2022.

    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
