Counter-Strike is dead, long live Counter-Strike!

Without a press release in sight, Valve has launched Counter-Strike 2 to the world. This free-to-play release is available right now and will replace your current installs of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. True to Valve tradition, today's release is actually a little bit later than initially expected. During its initial announcement in March, Valve said Counter-Strike 2 would be out in summer. It is now fall, but they only missed...

    Offensive Messages Sent in Children's MMO Not from Disgruntled Employee

    The messages were coming from outside the building!

    Last week, the typically kid friendly MMO called Wizard101 turned into a real minefield of vulgar server messages. Players that were online on Friday, September 16 saw several server-wide messages that included jokes, swearing, and even complaints about the poor pay at developer KingsIsle. That fact that only KingsIsle staff should have access to this broadcast system and the messages about poor pay led many to believe that the messages...

    The countersuit claims Bungie violated DMCA.

    Cheat maker and provider AimJunkies has filed a countersuit against Destiny 2 developer Bungie.

    Ted Lasso and AFC Richmond Coming to FIFA 23

    The fictional character and fictional team are really being added to FIFA 23.

    With this being the last official FIFA release from Electronic Arts, I get the feeling that they're just kind of going "the heck with it, let's go for broke." Today, EA and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that the fictional character of Ted Lasso and his equally fictional team, AFC Richmond, will be included in FIFA 23.

    Ted Lasso is an Apple TV show that debuted in...

    Just yesterday, Twitch scored a few brownie points when they said they were going to ban some gambling on the streaming platform. It wasn't much but at least it was something positive. Today, whatever positivity remained was tossed out the window when Twitch flatly refused to increase streamer revenue share.

    Twitch to Ban Some Gambling but Not All

    There is still much room for improvement here.

    For some time now, gambling on Twitch lived in this nebulous grey zone where Twitch staff often turned a blind eye to it so long as certain restrictions were adhered to. Things such as referral codes to sites that include gambling were verboten, but streamers often found ways around this while they gambled on stream.

    Allowing gambling on the platform has often been hotly debated from both streamers and viewers alike. Now,...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
