Band Together in Terror: The Outlast Trials Review

The Outlast Trials proves that survival horror can be more fun with friends.

The Outlast Trials is a four-player PvE game taking place in the Cold War era. The game's opening moments and lore paint a gruesome and wicked scene that will be familiar to series veterans but disquieting to those new to the Outlast universe. Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

TikTok Ban Signed Into Law by President Biden

Owner ByteDance has 270 days to sell off TikTok.

On April 24, President Joe Biden signed a foreign aid package that also included a bill that could ban TikTok in the United States. This ban can only be averted if the China-based company that owns TikTok, ByteDance, sells off the popular social media app before the 270 day time limit is up.

This gives ByteDance until January 19, 2025 to sell TikTok. An additional 90 day extension could be offered by President Biden if...

Ubisoft Pulls Licenses for The Crew, Makes the Game Completely Inaccessible to Buyers

From the same company trying to sell you a $130 version of Star Wars Outlaws.

From announcing a $130 edition of Star Wars Outlaws to pulling game licenses from those that bought The Crew, Ubisoft sure is on a roll this week.

The Crew was Ubisoft's open-world racing game that was pulled from sale back in December 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Ubisoft shut down the online servers for The Crew. This effectively made the game unplayable across all platforms, including: PC,...

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...

  • Twitch Moves Forward on Plan to Limit 70/30 Revenue Split to First $100K Earned

    This move comes months after staying firm in a 50/50 split.

    In late September 2022, Twitch announced that they are not going to budge on a policy change that would let Twitch partners earn more than 50% on all subscriptions. For a long while, several Twitch partners were earning a 70/30 split, which let them pull in 70% of all user subscriptions, while everyone else earned the base 50%.

    At the time, Twitch streamers and viewers signed a petition pushing for a 70/30 split...

    Major Steam Client Update Leaves Beta

    Over a month of beta testing later, the update is ready for prime time.

    In late April, Valve pushed out a beta update for the Steam client. This update was far more extensive than mere bug fixes or tiny tweaks here and there. This update has just left beta and is out for everyone using Steam.

    First and foremost, Steam is now using a new and updated framework. A lot of this won't be visible to the end user, but it allows Valve to more easily share code between the desktop...

    Three Overwatch 2 Story Missions to Cost $15

    Overwatch 2: Invasion is the start of the story content for Overwatch 2, but it comes with a price.

    The PvE story content for Overwatch 2 was always going to have some charge associated with it. The plan was to have the PvE content cost a base fee for a full story campaign while the multiplayer remained free. "Free" if you ignore the cosmetic microtransactions, of course.

    Then came the news that Blizzard scrapped their PvE Hero content for Overwatch 2. At least,...

  • Metal: Hellsinger's New DLC Pack is Decidedly Not Very Metal

    Metal: Hellsinger's New DLC Pack is Decidedly Not Very Metal

    Nothing says metal quite like Paramore's Misery Business.

    Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm game where you slay demons of hell to the beat of some pulse-pounding heavy metal songs. Right? Right. It featured artists like Serj Tankian from System of a Down, Tatiana Shmayluk from Jinjer, Matt Heafy from Trivium, and many more heavy metal heavy hitters. The songs they all performed were written for and created specifically for Metal: Hellsinger.

    Progress will carry over to the full game.

    Square Enix released a demo for Final Fantasy 16, their upcoming action-RPG. This demo, playable right now on PlayStation 5, will let you play through some rather meaty chunks of the game. There is the opening prologue sequence and a separate action focused mission.

    The prologue segment is heavy on the story, which is probably to be expected. It's a couple of hours in length and will let you carry over your progress to the full...

    High on Knife Announced by Squanch Games

    This newly announced DLC is high on new content and low on Justin Roiland.

    Squanch Games just announced the first DLC for High on Life. This new DLC, aptly named High on Knife will give Knifey a chance to stab until he can stab no more.

    If you recall, we gave the base game of High on Life some rather high praise in our review. It ended up being quite the surprise hit, ending up as a top seller on Steam and apparently the biggest third-party and single-player Game Pass...
