Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions. Users were able to trick Steam into thinking they lived in one region where a price of a game was more favorable to them due to exchange rates. This had the unfortunate side-effect of developers and publishers having to increase prices in these regions to put a stop to those using VPNs...

Metacritic Finally Does Away with Day One User Scores

Perhaps done in an effort to suppress user score review bombing.

According to a new report by Paul Tassi, via Forbes, Metacritic seems to be doing away with allowing users to submit scores on games until at least a day after release. Tassi notes that user scores for the just released Ghost of Tsushima only has critical scores posted for the game. The user scores are currently showing a message that user reviews will be permitted starting July 18 at 12PM (PT).

    Guitar Hero Live Announced by Activision

    Almost missed this one today but Guitar Hero Live was officially announced by Activision earlier. As the name implies, it's Guitar Hero but like... in front of real people. It also features a new guitar design that not too many are thrilled about.


    Still don't have a good idea of what to expect? Kinda Funny Games shows off quite a bit more gameplay and how the crowd and bandmates will react to your performance.

    So, what songs can you exp...

    Grand Theft Auto V is Out Now on PC

    Well technically, the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V happened last night at 7PM (ET). However, if you've been in a coma for the last roughly 20 hours, this is going to be some hot news to you!

GTAV for PC offers players a huge range of PC-specific customizati

  • Op-Ed: The PC Release of Mortal Kombat X Seems Silly and Dumb

    Op-Ed: The PC Release of Mortal Kombat X Seems Silly and Dumb

    To put it mildly, the PC release of Mortal Kombat X seems to be a bit of a clusterfuck. I "preloaded" the game last night and was surprised to see that it was only a bit over 3GB in size. "Huh, that's weird," I thought. I shrugged it off and instead proceeded to play the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V instead. Now, despite there being a few minor issues (unless you had certain 9xx series Nvidia cards), the PC launch of GTAV went really, really smoothly. This is especially in comparison ...

  • Mortal Kombat X Includes Microtransactions to Allow for Easier Fatalities

    Mortal Kombat X Includes Microtransactions to Allow for Easier Fatalities

    In a move that is right up there with selling horse armor, Netherrealm and WBIE have decided to include some less than savory optional microtransactions in Mortal Kombat X. Those who have purchased the game on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may have already discovered that you can pay to have the ability to more easily pull off Fatalities. That's right, pay even more money (on top of the price of the game and optional Season Pass) just to earn the the ability off Fatalities more easily...

    Destiny: House of Wolves Will Not Feature a New Raid

    Despite the raids being one of the major pulls for players to constantly return to Destiny, Bungie has revealed today that the House of Wolves expansion will not feature a new raid. Instead, the company will offer a 3-player battle arena mode called "Prison of Elders." That's right, Bungie is not going to offer one of their strongest game features (raids) and is replacing it instead with something that either sounds like another PvP mode or, dare I say it, a horde based mode. Yup. Good call ...

  • Activision Teasing a new Game, It's Probably Guitar Hero

    Activision Teasing a new Game, It's Probably Guitar Hero

    Activision released a new teaser trailer today. It features a band, guitars, musical instruments, and all things associated with a rock concert. So unless they're bringing back a weirdly re-imagined Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon, this is probably a teaser for a new Guitar Hero game.


    I mean, a new Rock Band was already announced, so why shouldn't they also jump back onto the bandwagon? Though some sources say they've actually been working on this since 2013....
