Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

    A new game mode and content update was released today for GRIP: Combat Racing. The update introduces new anti-gravity racers called "AirBlades" to the game. AirBlades utilize the "Element 115 anti-grav engine" that allows them to operate more like the ships from Wipeout than the vehicles from Rollcage. Both vehicle types can still flip on any side as they choose their own path around the track.

    AirBlades are available on all of the original tracks that shipped with GRIP. They also have special...

  • U.S. Senator Proposes Bill to Ban Loot Boxes and Pay-to-Win Microtransactions

    "Keep ur politics out of muh vidyagams!"

    Representative Josh Hawley announced a new bill that aims to ban loot boxes and pay-to-win (P2W) microtransactions in games that are "played by minors." The senator understands that it's a broad label but clarified that this will include games designed for kids under 18 and games "whose developers knowingly allow minor players to engage in microtransactions."

    Sure, that is still a fairly broad umbrella since there are just so many games that this would apply to. Which is actually...

  • Strategy Game 'John Wick Hex' Announced for Consoles and Epic Games Store

    Strategy Game 'John Wick Hex' Announced for Consoles and Epic Games Store

    Because when I think of John Wick, I think real-time strategy.

    John Wick is getting a video game called John Wick Hex. It's a real-time strategy game. Yeah, mull that one over in your brain.

    To be fair, it's a "fast-paced, action-oriented strategy game." I think that sounds better, right? It's being made by game director Mike Bithell, who previously brought you games like Volume and Thomas Was Alone, a game about geometric shapes.

    This title will make you "think and strike like John Wick." It's obviously based...
