Tim Sweeney Called Valve 'Assholes' in Email to Gabe Newell, Valve COO Says 'You Mad Bro?'

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week. To quickly get you up to speed: Wolfire claims that Valve uses its position with Steam to control game prices and muscle out competition.

It may have taken almost two years, but we are now starting to see some of the documents that...

    Resident Evil 7 Chris Redfield and Zoe DLCs Coming on December 12

    Hey, remember the end of Resident Evil 7 where you went, "wait, what?" And then the tease at the very end said there was going to be some new DLC coming that starred Chris Redfield. But then that DLC was postponed for what seems like forever.

    Now, almost a year after the game's initial release, that "Not a Hero" DLC is finally going to be released. Not only that, but Capcom has also announced an "End of Zoe" piece of content. Plus, they announced the Resident Evil 7 biohazard...

    Official Nintendo Switch SanDisk Memory Cards Coming in October

    Nintendo and SandDisk have teamed up to release officially licensed memory cards for the Switch. The beautiful part of this, is the fact that the photo seems to indicate that the only thing that is "Nintendo" about the actual stick is a small Switch logo on the stick and, of course, the packaging. The packaging that you... rip open... and throw... away. You couldn't even do something like "Mario Red" or "Link Green?"

    Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package Coming to PS4 this December

    Looks like the year long's period of timed exclusivity for Dead Rising 4 is finally up. Capcom announced today that Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package is coming to the PlayStation 4 on December 5. As the title implies, the title that is not so subtly a nod to having a big dick (if you somehow didn't pick up on that), this release will include the game and all previously released downloadable content and bonus content.

    Middle-earth: Shadow of War "Forthog Orc-Slayer" Trailer

    WB Games and Monolith are just cranking these things out at a mile a minute, because we have yet another trailer for Middle-earth: Shadow of War to share today. This one is for "Forthog Orc-Slayer." Or maybe it's "Forthog Orc Slayer" or perhaps "Forthog Orcslayer?" I'm not really sure. This press release literally has three different spellings going on.

    In all seriousness though, Monolith's latest trailer is a tribute to Executive Producer Mike Forgey. Forgey passed away in...

    by Shawn Zipay
    It's AAAA vs WB.

    March isn't even over yet and we've already seen a couple of stinkers come out from major gaming studios. While we tend to focus on the surprise hits or quality titles in these polls, this time it's a little bit different.

    Between the Rocksteady developed live-service Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League and the "AAAA" quality Ubisoft developed Skull and Bones: Which is the bigger disappointment for you?
