New 'Experimental' Splinter Cell Game Confirmed by Ubisoft CEO

Open World? GAAS? Mobile? VR?

The emotional rollercoaster that fans of the Splinter Cell series has been on for the past few years has been never ending, has had no chill, and frankly, it's gotten to be a wee bit tiresome. In May of this year, a new Splinter Cell was apparently "confirmed" and then it was later revealed to just be a joke.

Last month, we again heard a rumor that a new Splinter Cell was actually in the works. However, that story from July says that Facebook is financing the game and that it will be a VR only title and exclusive to the Oculus...
 

Mojang Cancels 'Super Duper Graphics Pack' for Minecraft

Performance issues and engine difficulties were too much to overcome.

Sadly, Mojang announced today that they are cancelling the promised Super Duper Graphics Pack that was originally revealed at E3 2017. This visual overhaul was teased for the game during the annual industry trade show and fans were eager to check it out for themselves.

This all comes courtesy of YouTuber TheLongSensation via his Twitter account. While it may be easy to just write this off as some random person...

Update arrives August 14.

A launch trailer for the massive Beyond update for No Man's Sky was released today by Hello Games. This update is said to be the "culmination of 12 months of work" on what was originally going to be three separate, large updates. Those three updates have been rolled into this massive update.

Solos Finally Coming to Apex Legends

But only for a limited time.

Apex Legends will finally allow introverts to play without worry starting on August 13. A Solos Mode will be introduced into the F2P battle royale game. So far, the game has only really allowed for three-man squads.

The addition of Solos Mode is the good news. The bad news is that this mode will only be added to the game for a limited time. This Solos Mode will run from August 13 through August 27 in Apex Legends. Best get your fill of it while you can, because who knows when or if it will come back afterwards. ...

  • Feminist Frequency Creator Anita Sarkeesian Driven From Home After Death Threats and Abuse

    Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Feminist Frequency's "Tropes vs Women in Video Games." Perhaps you've heard of it? It's rather hard not to hear anything about her or the series, especially this past month. You may be aware then of just how much abuse gets thrown her way on a daily basis. Well, it seems as though some Internet tough guys took things just a bit too far last night.

    A person or persons sent messages via Twitter to her about how they were going to murder her and her family. The abuse became so bad that she contacted authorities and decided to stay with some friends over night instead of at her own place.

  • Rockstar Says Lindsay Lohan's Grand Theft Auto V Lawsuit was Just for Attention

    Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive have said that the lawsuit filed by Lindsay Lohan against the Grand Theft Auto V team was made only because she needs attention.
