You ever write a three-page review for an energy supplement?

We got some news about it because this is a video game website that posts video game related news. That is how these things work. These 5-hour Energy Gamer Shots are available in three flavors: Pineapple Charge, Rocket Raspberry, and Apple Bash. Unless things have suddenly changed in the fe...
 

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...

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...

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...

    Dolphin Emulator No Longer Coming to Steam (Updated)

    You'll never guess who's to blame.

    Update May 27 at 2:00PM (ET): According to several sources, the issue isn't with the Dolphin Emulator per se, but rather the fact that the Dolphin team includes the Wii decryption key, aka: Wii common key, with their releases of Dolphin. This is obviously a big "no-no" as those are Nintendo property and are used to break DRM for Wii titles.

    You can see at least one take on this from Modern Vintage Gamer on YouTube starting at...

    Battlefield 2042 Season 5 - New Dawn - Trailer and New Content Details

    The fifth and final season is nearly here.

    Battlefield 2042 has had a hell of a run. From being a disappointing mess at launch to becoming a game that I can safely recommend in its current state. Today, DICE showed off a new trailer for Season 5: New Dawn, the fifth and final season of content for the FPS.

    Season 5: New Dawn will launch on June 7. This season will include a brand new map, new weapons, new gadgets, and various quality of life improvements. Some of those...

  • Last of Us Multiplayer Project Delayed, Naughty Dog Announces New Single Player Game

    The multiplayer just wasn't engaging enough.

    It was certainly a curious thing when The Last of Us multiplayer project was a no-show during the latest PlayStation Showcase event this week. The last we heard anything about this project came in January 2023 when Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann promised we would hear more about it later in 2023.

    Technically, he didn't lie because there was some new information shared today about the multiplayer project. Only it's probably not...

    The Lord of the Rings: Gollum Reviewing Worse than Crime Boss: Rockay City

    Gollum manages to be worse than a game with Vanilla Ice.

    The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was released today and I'm willing to bet that this won't be the last time you hear about this game. No, I suspect that you'll hear a bit more about this game when it comes time for some outlets to talk about the worst games released in 2023.

    Thus far, The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is sitting at just a 43% critic average on OpenCritic with only 5% of all critics actually recommending...
