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

Tim Sweeney is always mad.

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. Though the initial lawsuit against Valve was dismissed, Wolfire amended their suit in May 2022 and the legal battle was back on.

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

Xbox Confirms PlayStation 5 Releases, Diablo 4 on Game Pass, and Future Hardware Plans

No, Starfield and Indiana Jones are not going multi-platform any time soon.

The heads of Xbox stayed true to their word and were indeed a part of a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast. During today's pre-recorded podcast and subsequent blog post, head of Xbox Phil Spencer stated that four Xbox exclusives are going to be multi-platform releases. Is it Starfield? Indiana Jones? Gears of War? Halo?! No, no, no, and no. Though Spencer did not specify what those four titles ...

  • World of Tanks Coming to Xbox One X; New 4K Screenshots

    World of Tanks Coming to Xbox One X; New 4K Screenshots

    Wargaming announced today that "WoT is under development for the console." I think I was able to decipher the clues from the rest of the email here to figure out that World of Tanks is in development for the Xbox One X. The email, uh, wasn't very clear about this. Though seeing as how the game is already out for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, I really don't think they meant the Switch. Let's face it, 4K screenshots coming from a Switch? Not very likely. Speaking of those sc...

    The Influence of Games on Online Casinos

    For years now, the casino industry has made significant strides towards becoming far more mainstream. This includes the addition of more touch screen devices at traditional casino establishments. It also includes the addition of gambling for fun (not for real money payouts) devices being added to places that never had any sort of gambling machines in the past. This also includes the push for more gambling in an online environment. Lately, the biggest push is for online casinos. There are a numbe...

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Stand-Alone Maybe Coming June 27 for $40

    Despite Activision claiming time and time again that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered would never be sold separately, it looks like they were lying. Well, they're lying assuming that the rumors are true, rumors that have photographic evidence to back up the claims.

    According to some tips provided to Charlie Intel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will be released as a stand-alone product on June 20 for the rather lofty price of $39.99 (USD). The anonymous source said...

    2K announced today that Seth Rollins will grace the cover of WWE 2K18.
    Since joining WWE in 2010, Rollins has done things on his own terms. Like many claim but never accomplish, he was destined to be different, blaze his own trail and take no prisoners along the way, even if it meant disrespecting history. The first move on Rollins' chess board: become the inaugural NXT® Champion in 2012 and put everyone on high alert. The second move: make his WWE main roster debut at Survivor Series®

    Take-Two Shuts Down Paid GTA Online Cheating Tool

    Hot on the heels of shutting down a totally harmless single player mod tool set, OpenIV, Take-Two has finally set their sights on the actual problem in GTA Online.

    Force Hax was one of the go to modding tools that cheaters and griefers used in GTA Online. Take-Two forced Force Hax to cease all distribution of the cheat menu and to donate their proceeds to charity.

    Rockstar Facing Backlash After Shutting Down GTA Modding Tool OpenIV

    About 80% of the most recent 24,000+ Steam reviews for Grand Theft Auto V have been negative following the Take-Two Interactive shutdown of the popular GTA modding tool, OpenIV.

    This community disgust doesn't just stop with the Steam reviews. Instead, it continues on to an ongoing petition at Change.org, which currently has nearly 25,000 signatures. The petition will be sent to both Take-Two and Rockstar.

    Forza 7 Requires 100GB of Free Space at Launch

    Forza Motorsport 7 is going to require a copious amount of free hard drive space when it launches later this year. While the PC system requirements did not seem to be too crazy, there was a noticeable omission of the HDD space requirements. The mystery remains no more because the game's store page was updated with that omission and boy is it a doozy. Both PC and Xbox One owners will need to have 100GB of free space for the game. This size was first noted by ...

    Dying Light Getting 10 Free DLC Packs Over 12 Months

    Techland said that they plan on continuing support of Dying Light for a period of 12 months, beginning later this year. This support will include at least ten free additional DLC packs for the game. An 11th pack is planned but this one is said to actually arrive before the start of the 12 month run. Dying Light, if you recall, first came out about three years ago. It still holds up very well to this day, but it is surprising that this content is planned in lieu of any sort of a sequel...

  • Poll: What is 2024's Biggest Gaming Disappointment So Far?
    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?
