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,...
 

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...
 

Blizzard Loses Major Sponsor After Ban on 'Free Hong Kong' Hearthstone Pro

Blizzard continues to feel the impact of their ban of Hearthstone player Blitzchung.

It has been noticed by a number of Hearthstone fans that Mitsubishi's logo was no longer showing up during a recent Asia Pacific tournament for the game. Those on Reddit first noticed the missing logo. From there, it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that they have pulled their sponsorship from Blizzard.

This confirmation was made to The Daily Beast. Specifically, the branch that pulled its sponsorship from Blizzard was Mitsubishi Motors Taiwan, the Taiwanese branch...

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Looks Like Garbage on Xbox 360

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Looks Like Garbage on Xbox 360

    A comparison between the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 went up today and man, the Xbox 360 version looks downright ugly at times. Look at this.


    It just gets worse from here. YouTube user, Candyland, shows off some of the visual differences between the two generations.




    It should be safe to assume that the PlayStation 3 version will look just as bad as the Xbox 360 version shown above.

    Don't forget that this is a $50 game that only includes...

  • Fallout 4 Review Embargo Has Its Own Embargo

    Fallout 4 Review Embargo Has Its Own Embargo

    We heard you like embargoes, so we're putting an embargo on your embargo.

    Plan on reviewing Fallout 4? Chances are you received an email telling you that there is a review embargo in place for the game. That date is November 9 at 8AM (ET). That's all well and good, and not totally unexpected for a game release.

    What is different is the fact that announcing when your outlet will have a review going live is also under a separate embargo. That's right, you have to wait until November 6 at 10AM (PT) before you are permitted to even just...

    Pre-Orders for Black Ops 3 are Much Higher than Advanced Warfare

    The thirst is potentially real. Initial reports say that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 pre-orders are far exceeding the pre-orders for last year's Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Activision's CEO Eric Hirshberg issued the following remarks yesterday during the company's earning's call.
    "We couldn't be more excited about the launch this Friday," said Hirshberg. "We have strong momentum indicated by a number of factors, but just to name a few: the growing engagement around the past Black Ops titles; the significant year-on-year lift in pre-orders; consumer sentiment
