Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week.

It's being developed by Ultra Ultra, a studio that is made up almost entirely of former Hitman developers from IO Interactive. Color me intrigued.

    Destiny 2 PC Beta Begins August 28; Minimum Requirements Announced

    The dates have been finalized for the Destiny 2 beta on the PC. Those who pre-ordered the game will get to play it starting on August 28. It then turns into an open beta on August 29. The beta is slated to end for everyone on August 31. Will they extend the beta to last roughly a week as they did for console players? Maybe. Given how the PC release is already dreadfully behind the console release, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high for much of anything.

  • Mighty No. 9 Backers Continue to Be Disappointed as Physical Game Boxes Start to Arrive

    If you were bold/excited/dumb enough to back Mighty No. 9 at the $60 tier (or more), chances are you did so with the hope that the physical box that it promised would be a neat collector's item. At the time, nobody really knew that the game itself would be a stinker or that it would be delayed for as long as it was, but you still had hope. The game's release came and went and the truth about its quality was made evident but those backers at the $60 or more tier still awaited the arrival of their "p...
