G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...

EDF! EDF! EDF!

As usual, you will play as a member of the Earth Defense Force (EDF) as they battle giant ants, massive spiders, and all sorts of creepy crawlies. At your disposal will be a huge arsenal of weapons, vehicles, mechs, and customizable class...
 

Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

Then quickly announces this will happen again.

If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
 

Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

No solid ETA on when they will be either.

If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...
 

Review: The Sinking City (PC)

That sinking feeling.

Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • Zarya Gameplay from Overwatch

    Zarya Gameplay from Overwatch

    Blizzard released another character bio and gameplay preview today for Overwatch. Today's focus is on Zarya the tank.
    Aleksandra Zaryanova is one of the world's strongest women, a celebrated athlete who sacrificed personal glory to protect her family, friends, and country in a time of war. Aleksandra was born in a remote Siberian village that was on the front lines of the Omnic Crisis, which began some thirty years ago. Although Russian forces defeated the robots and shut down their omnium, the region was devastated by the conflict. Only a child at the time, Aleksandra was surrounded by the post-war destruction, and as she grew older, she swore t

  • Apple Pulls All Games with a Confederate Flag from App Store

    Apple Pulls All Games with a Confederate Flag from App Store

    Apple has pulled all games from the App Store that have the confederate flag in them because they include "images of the Confederate flag used in offensive and mean-spirited ways." While there is certainly good reason for places to stop selling that flag and there is certainly a great argument to be made for taking down the flag from government buildings, it seems a bit of a stretch to remove all historically based games from the App Store.

    Andrew from HexWar Games issued a statement to TouchArcade about this. Hi and HexWar Games have released many historical games on the App Store.

  • Nvidia Accused of Deceiving Consumers with Artificially Sped Up 60FPS Batman: Arkham Knight Promo Video

    Prior to the game's release, Nvidia cut a couple of GameWorks promotional videos for Batman: Arkham Knight. Interestingly, those videos were presented at 60FPS. Unfortunately, the actual game doesn't run at 60FPS without an INI tweak. Even worse is that the game doesn't reliably run at 60FPS even with the INI tweak.

    A YouTube user, PoweredByFlow, is credited with discovering the following, which was then passed along to a wider audience via Sajius460 on Reddit. The claim is that if you watch the following promo video starting at 24 seconds in, you can hear the enemies sounding a bit... odd. They sound like chipmunks, an audio issue...

  • Valve Updated the Look of their Steam Android App

    Valve Updated the Look of their Steam Android App

    For the first time in literally years, Valve has updated the look and design of their Steam Android app! The update is starting its roll out today on Google Play. If you don't yet have the update, it should show up for you in the coming days.

    The update brings the app closer to Material design. It's by no means a great Material design but it's sure as hell a lot better than what we had prior. Hopefully this is the first update of many that will bring the Steam Android app completely in line with a modern and Material design. Let's also hope that it doesn't take another few years before we see additional updates....
