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.

Later tonight, The Game Awards will be streamed live. That all kicks off at 8:30PM (ET) and can be watched online at places like Twitch, Steam, Mixer, Twitter, YouTube, consoles, other websites, and even at select movie theaters.

We already knew that.

What we didn't know until just a short time ago is that Geoff Keighley has also organized a special bonus treat for everyone. Today, he announced The Game Festival. The Game Festival, going live right...
 

MLB The Show is No Longer a PlayStation Exclusive

Soon, MLB The Show will be available on more than just Sony's platforms.

It has just been announced that starting as soon as 2021's release, MLB The Show will no longer be a PlayStation platform exclusive. Though other platforms have not yet been specified, both the official Nintendo and Xbox Twitter accounts were quick to comment on this new development.

For the past dozen or so years, MLB The Show has been developed by San Diego Studio, a subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Sony has also had the exclusive rights to develop and publish...
 

New 2K Studio Confirmed to be Working on Next BioShock Game

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. The team will operate both out of 2K's San Francisco Bay Area HQ in Novato, CA in addition to a new location in Montreal, Quebec. This marks the first Canadian office for 2K.

The other big surprise today is the fact that Cloud Chamber has...
 

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...

  • Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Coming in October

    Stop monkeying around.

    On October 29, 2019, those on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will get to pick up and purchase and play Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD. This same game will also hit the PC via Steam at some point during Winter 2019.

    This was originally released for the Nintendo Wii back in 2006. Of course, back then such a thing like HD was a mere dream. Folks back then were stuck at pitiful resolutions like 480p or even 576i. Ewwww. Could you even imagine? Thankfully this HD release in 2019 will include updated graphics,...

    Tetris Effect Coming to PC Next Week as Epic Store Exclusive

    No word on if it's a timed exclusive.

    The game that many called 2018's game of the year is coming very soon to the PC. That's right, Tetris Effect brings its psychedelic strategy-puzzle gameplay to a PC somewhat near you on July 23. Ah, but there is a catch, because of course there is.

    In case you missed it, Tetris Effect is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. There is no saying whether or not this is a timed exclusive release, or if this third-party PC release will remain an exclusive to that launcher. This release will mark the first time that...

  • Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Horror Game Devotion May Not be Re-released

    Developer says this may change, but not any time soon.

    This past February, Taiwan-based Red Candle Games pulled their then newly released horror title, Devotion, from the Steam store. This came after it was discovered that the game had shipped with an Easter egg that references how China's president, Xi Jinping, looks like Winnie the Pooh. What followed was a wave of review bombing on Steam from upset Chinese citizens that continued to toe the line that the government has repeatedly pushed upon them.

    The original plan from Red Candle Games was...

  • Respawn to Force Apex Legends Cheaters to Play Each Other

    Respawn to Force Apex Legends Cheaters to Play Each Other

    That's one way of dealing with cheaters.

    Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Apex Legends, says that they will soon begin to implement a new method of anti-cheat in their still fairly popular battle royale title. Unlike many other methods of anti-cheat, this one aims to issue softbans against known cheaters.

    In short, this means that people who are detected to be cheating will be matched up only against others who have been found to be cheating. These people will not be matched up against those who are legitimate players. That is, of course,...

    Gears 5 Does Away with Smoking

    Smoking is bad, but violence...?

    Gears 5 will not include any depictions of smoking. The upcoming third-person shooter, slated for release on September 10 on PC and Xbox One, does away with all tobacco use after a push from the Truth Initiative. The anti-smoking organization, Truth Initiative, approached Turner, the company that owns the rights to broadcast Gears 5 ELeague esports matches. Turner, after speaking with Truth Initiative, spoke to The Coalition about the removal of the use of tobacco from the game.

    Ion Maiden Renamed to Ion Fury for Probably Obvious Reasons
