    Get Used to PC Games Releasing at $70

    It all started when the next-gen consoles were released in 2020. Ever since the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and the PlayStation 5 were released, more and more game releases have been priced at $70 (USD). However, these prices seem to be limited to the next-gen experiences and the term "next-gen tax" was coined. For a while there, it seemed as though the "typical" $60 prices would stick around for older-generation consoles as well as PC. Unfortunately, with the recent release...

    The bad news that is the literal everything surrounding Battlefield 2042 will continue to get that much worse if the latest leak is to be believed.

    Ubisoft is Bleeding Employees in Wake of Company-wide Issues

    Numerous employees are quitting due to low pay, the lack of change, and other issues.

    People quitting their jobs in search of more fulfilling careers really isn't all that uncommon here in late 2021. We have seen it across multiple industries and workplaces as workers start to realize that they're worth more than the bare minimum many employers offer them.

    Halo Infinite Glitch Enables Couch Co-op with a Catch

    There's a way to enable couch co-op in Halo Infinite, but it would be wise to wait.

    For most fans, the fact that Halo Infinite released without any sort of campaign co-op was quite disappointing. 343 Industries did say that co-op would be coming alongside Season 2 of the game, which may not be released until at least May 2022.

    However, there is a way to "play" Halo Infinite with local co-op thanks to a little workaround. This was discovered and posted to the...

Maybe you're having a particularly frustrating day, and nothing is going your way. Maybe your teammates (and totally not you) are doing terrible and you're losing a multiplayer game because of it. Maybe you just died for the 50th time to a boss that did some unblockable...
