EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

EA is changing the name of their Origin client to "EA Desktop." EA is calling their new app a "next-generation PC gaming platform."

This renaming will...

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2

Feeling younger in my mind.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background. The first couple of Tony Hawk games hold a special place in a lot of our hearts...

  • Recent PS4 SDK Update Unlocked Additional CPU Core for Gaming

    Recent PS4 SDK Update Unlocked Additional CPU Core for Gaming

    Up until a recent SDK update for the PlayStation 4, the team at Sony decided that the system needed at least two CPU cores to run the operating system and other associated tasks. Well, that was changed a few weeks back when an SDK update for the platform rolled out where Sony unlocked a seventh core that could be used for gaming purposes. Yes, Sony removed a dedicated operating system core and is allowing developers to make use of it for whatever they need it for in their games. The news "...

    Sony Working on Official Remote Play Functionality for PC

    This past week, some third-party fans managed to get PlayStation 4 remote play working on their computers using some homebrew software. This apparently spurred some to ask Sony's Shuhei Yoshida if the company has any official plans to roll out official remote play functionality. Here is his official response.

    There is no word on how long Sony has been working on the development of remote play functionality. Between this news and the news that Sony has been working on ...

    Valve Introduces Three Day Hold on Trade Items for Non-Authenticator Users

    Valve is introducing a three day hold on all trades between people that do not have their Steam accounts secured with the Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator. Valve recently tossed up a new Support page that details how you can prevent the 72-hour hold on all trades. It's actually quite simple.

  • Where are the Reviews for the Steam Controller and Steam Link?

    Where are the Reviews for the Steam Controller and Steam Link?

    Hello denizens of Total Gaming Network! I feel as though I owe some sort of an explanation here as to where the promised reviews are for the Steam Controller and Steam Link.

    Part of it is because I am hitting some terrible mental blockades that have really put a damper on creating anything cohesive as far as reviews go. It started with the Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns review and it has not let up since then. I'm not sure why I've been hit with such a terrible bout of writer's...

  • 10 Awards and 10 World Premiere Trailers for The Game Awards 2015

    10 Awards and 10 World Premiere Trailers for The Game Awards 2015

    Geoff Keighley mentioned this morning that there will be 10 "world premiere" trailers shown off at The Game Awards 2015. These don't really mean 10 new games, but rather 10 new trailers for games that may or may not already be announced. These go alongside the 10 on-stage awards that will be given out.

    There are 22 award categories this year, meaning that less than 50% of the actual awards will be given any on-stage time at The Game Awards. But hey, at least you'll get that...

    PSA: The Steam Fall Sale - Exploration Sale - is on Now

    Valve kicked off the Fall 2015 sale for Steam earlier today. They're calling it the "Exploration Sale" and includes nearly 8,800 games on sale throughout the service. Gone are the daily deals and gone are the rotating community voted sales. What you see is what you get for this one. There is literally no reason to wait if you see a game on sale that you want to buy since it won't be going any cheaper during the sale period. Valve will cycle in new games on the main page but again, these...
