Report: Xbox, Sony, and Nintendo to Skip E3 2023

E3's big return sounds like it's more of a dud.

In September 2022, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced that E3 was returning. Not only was it returning, but it would be the show's first in-person event in four years.

Now, we're learning that none of the three major console makers will have any sort of presence at the trade show. Sony and Nintendo not having a presence probably isn't too surprising. Those two companies had already started to do their...
 

More Details on the Return to Classes in Battlefield 2042

Classes are coming back to Battlefield very soon. Here's what you need to know.

​We have known for a while now that DICE has been planning to re-introduce the traditional Battlefield Class system into Battlefield 2042. Today, DICE took the time to provide a lengthy write-up talking about the changes that are being made in order to add Classes into a game that really didn't have any.

DICE opens their write-up by saying that "Specialists at launch were polarizing to...

An update will allow you to connect to Bluetooth enabled devices.

According to the watch I don't own, Google Stadia is now probably shut down. Well, if it's not at the time of posting, it probably will be by the time you read this. Stadia was set to shut down on January 18th and, well, it's now January 18th.

At the 11th hour, Google released a new support tool that will allow those with a Stadia Controller to use it as a general Bluetooth controller. Without the use of...
 

Games to Look Forward to in 2023

I won't lie. I fully expected there to be far more news to post today (January 2, 2023) given that it's the start of the week and the holidays are "technically" over. What I failed to realize is that a ton of people are still off work due to the New Year falling on a Sunday. Thus, here I am opting to do a little write-up about what games I'm looking forward to in 2023 instead of sitting around doing nothing. Who knows, maybe you're looking forward to these games as well. If I missed some games ...
 

Total Gaming Network's 2022 Games of the Year

It is time once more to talk about the best games that have come out over the past year. As the case has been with previous years, this list of games only includes the titles that I have personally played to some degree. In addition, the games on this list are games that were released in 2022 unless otherwise stated for some specific reason. As I am the only one posting content on the site, this is as much a "Total Gaming Network Game of the Year" as it is my personal Game of the Year selection. ...

    Several Xbox Game Studios Impacted by Mass Layoffs at Microsoft

    Employees across several Microsoft owned studios were just let go from the company.

    Microsoft announced plans to layoff 10,000 employees, a decision that CEO Satya Nadella calls "difficult but necessary." A statement issued to employees, made public by Microsoft, does not go into detail just how many departments are being impacted. However, we do know that the Xbox division at Microsoft did not come away unscathed.

    Several studios under Xbox were impacted by...

    The Callisto Protocol Unable to Lead Sales Charts in Debut Month

    And the hits just keep on coming.

    Over the weekend, information was shared suggesting that The Callisto Protocol failed to meet sales expectations by a considerable margin. Today we have further information, this time from the NPD Group, that sheds some additional light on just how poorly this new sci-fi horror/shooter performed.

    The NPD Group shared their sales information for December 2022 along with their full year 2022 details. The full year isn't all that exciting,...

    Forspoken Has Very High PC Requirements

    Better have the hardware, else you may be stuck with 720p at 30FPS.

    Square Enix just shared some new details about the PC system requirements for Forspoken. They are, without a doubt, very lofty in several different ways. Just to set the tone here, the minimum requirements here will get you only 720p and 30FPS.

    No matter if you are aiming for minimum, recommended, or ultra quality, everyone will need at least 150GB of free drive space. You are also looking at needing a...

    Destiny 2: Lightfall - A Fresh Look at Neptune

    A new trailer shows off more of those neon filled city of Neomuna.

    We were given our first look at Destiny 2: Lightfall back in August. Today, Bungie decided to share a bit more about a few aspects of that new expansion, but not too much. Today's focus is on Neomuna, a metropolis on Neptune, filled with big ol' skyscrapers and plenty of neon lights.

    The trailer, in addition to showing off all these pretty sights, also sheds some light (hah) on how Calus's invasion into...

    Battlefield 2042 Update 3.1.2 Releases January 17

    It's not quite as feature filled as we would like, but the update is coming nonetheless.

    DICE just dropped word that on January 17 at about 4AM (ET), the 3.1.2 update for Battlefield 2042 will be released. This update aims to address a few of the more major outstanding issues and also adds in a few changes that players have brought to the devs' attention over the holidays.

    This update is much smaller in scope compared to other recent updates, but worry not. DICE says that...

    Konami Talks About the Silent Hill 2 Remake and Working with Bloober

    "I get the sense that they take their work very seriously, and that they believe videogames to be art even more than we thought."

    Whether we wanted it to or not, a remake of Silent Hill 2 is coming from Bloober Team. The studio known for games like Layers of Fear, The Medium, and Observer have been working on this Silent Hill 2 remake for quite some time now. They, alongside Konami, are sprucing up the classic horror title for an all new generation.

    The Callisto Protocol Massively Underperformed

    The game is also reportedly having trouble recuperating development costs.

    Now this story may need to be taken with a little bit of salt. There is a new report out of a Korean media outlet that offers up a little insight as to how poorly The Callisto Protocol has performed. The information shared here has only been seen in this one report and, even without any sort of translation issues, may still be inaccurate. The information coming out of Korea was also shared by MP1ST.

    Goose Goose Duck Update Adds New Map, Roles, and More

    More than 800,000 people have played this Among Us clone.

    Across the weekend running from January 8th through the 9th, Steam broke all sorts of records. As we assumed prior, these user records hit by Steam were probably helped out quite a bit by the surge in popularity of a game called Goose Goose Duck. This is the Among Us clone originally released in October 2021 that rose in popularity over the past week after a K-pop star from the group BTS, Kim "V" Tae-hyung, played...

  • Poll: Which Horror Remake Are You Most Excited For in Early 2023?
    by Shawn Zipay
    There are at least three of them coming this year.

    It's near the start of the month. It's a new month, a new year, but probably the same you. 2023 will have a number of remakes and remasters released, same as the previous few years. While there are remakes and remasters of games such as Like a Dragon: Ishin and Risk of Rain Returns slated to be released in 2023, we're going to focus only on the horror remakes in the pipeline.

    That means, I'm asking just one simple question:...
    Dead Space (January 27)
    25.00%
    1
    Resident Evil 4 (March 24)
    50.00%
    2
    System Shock (March)
    25.00%
