Review: Crysis Remastered Is One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Maximum meh.

In 2007 the original Crysis was released for the PC. The big question on everyone's mind at the time, and even through to today, is "can your PC run Crysis?" Usually, the answer was "yes, but…" because even the beefiest of computer hardware had trouble maxing out the graphical options that Crysis brought to the table at the time.

Fast-forward to 2020 and the answer gets a bit more muddled. See, the original Crysis was very dependent on...
 

Microsoft Acquires ZeniMax for $7.5 Billion

It's official.

Microsoft has confirmed that they are in the process of acquiring ZeniMax Media for a cool $7.5 billion (USD) in cash. ZeniMax is the parent company of studios like Bethesda, creator of The Elder Scrolls, as well as id Software, the developer behind DOOM.

This acquisition is reportedly the "biggest video game purchase ever" for Microsoft.

At present, Bethesda has two games that are slated to arrive in 2021. Those include Deathloop...
 

PlayStation 5 Starting at $400, Launches Starting November 12

$400 for digital-only, $500 for the full system.

The next-gen is now fully in gear. With Microsoft announcing the price and release date of their Xbox Series X, the only piece of the puzzle that remained was what Sony would do with the PlayStation 5. Today, the company announced that the Digital Edition will retail for $399.99 (USD) while the "regular" version with a disc drive will retail for $499.99.

Both consoles are expected to launch in select countries...
 

EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Today, Microsoft reveals that the more powerful Xbox Series X will also launch on November 10 for a very affordable $499 (USD).

Pre-orders for both consoles will begin on September 22.

In addition to this, Microsoft announces that...

    Mike Shapiro, Voice of Half-Life's G-Man, Seems to be Teasing Something

    Shapiro hints that his next project is a "blast from the past."

    Though Valve has just released Half-Life: Alyx, it wasn't exactly the Half-Life game many fans of the series wanted. Sure, it's an absolutely fantastic game but it's not exactly Half-Life 3, you know? Though it took Valve almost 13 years to get any sort of a new Half-Life game released after Half-Life 2: Episode Two, there may actually be something else coming sooner than you may think.

    One day after...

    GameStop Closing Over 300 Stores Permanently

    Was it worth it?

    GameStop announced that it is closing over 300 stores this year. These closures are part of their continued efforts to "de-densify" and was announced during the latest earnings call for the dying gaming focused retailer. Last fiscal year, the company revealed that they closed 321 stores. This brought their total number of locations to 5,500 storefronts. This year, GameStop's CEO George Sherman says that they have plans to match or possibly exceed last year's...

    A Life is Strange 2 Demo is Now Available

    Try it before you maybe buy it.

    Once upon a time, there existed these things called "demos." Demos were free little pieces of a full game that allowed players, players like you, to try out a game before deciding whether or not to purchase the full game. These days, you may think about how many pre-release betas are in all actuality, renamed demos. You are probably usually right in thinking that.

    However, a real and proper demo was actually released today. It's...

    Catherine: Full Body Coming to Switch in July

    It's a story of puzzles, sheep, and infidelity.

    Starting right now, Nintendo Switch owners can add Catherine: Full Body to their eShop wishlists. Alternatively, they can pre-order the game from select retailers for a special sheep keychain. Whatever is decided upon, it would be wise to get those orders in fairly soon because Catherine: Full Body will be out on the Switch on July 7.

    Atlus has passed along a new trailer that should give Switch owners a little sample of what...

    Get World War Z for Free for a Limited Time

    Great game at a great price.

    For a limited time, you are able to acquire one of the games I considered to be one of the best games released in 2019 for absolutely free. Through the next week until April 2, you can get World War Z for free through the Epic Games Store (affiliate link, but it's free so...?).

    World War Z is a co-op shooter developed by Saber Interactive and published by Focus Home Interactive. It is inspired by the movie of the same name, which itself is...

    Epic Games Signs Publishing Deal with Remedy, Playdead, and gen DESIGN

    A step up from the typical moneyhatting approach.

    Epic Games announced today that they have entered into a new multiplatform publishing deal with three different developers. These developers include gen DESIGN (The Last Guardian), Playdead (Limbo, Inside), and Remedy Entertainment (Control, Alan Wake).

    These partnerships are a bit unlike other recent Epic deals. Instead of spending a load of money to pull nearly complete games off of other platforms, they will actually...

    EA Returning to Nintendo with Burnout Paradise for the Switch

    It's not new, but at least it's something.

    Electronic Arts has largely ignored Nintendo's platforms for a number of years now. Even when they released a handful of games on Nintendo platforms, they usually just released feature stripped versions of a few of their sports titles like FIFA. Well, it seems as though EA may slowly be coming back to Nintendo. It begins with a low risk testing of the waters.

    Later in 2020, EA will release Burnout Paradise Remastered on the Nintendo...

  • Fast-Paced FPS 'Bright Memory' Leaves Early Access Today

    Fast-Paced FPS 'Bright Memory' Leaves Early Access Today

    For those looking for a FPS and melee combo action game.

    The 1.0 release of Bright Memory is now available on Steam and GOG.com, having just left Early Access. This is a "high-octane, visually stunning FPS made by a solo developer at FYQD Studio." This is a bit of an odd release, so try to stick with me on this.

    Bright Memory's 1.0 release includes some fixes and new content for this "full" release of the game. However, this still isn't the "complete"...
