G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...
 

Earth Defense Force 5 Coming to PC this Week

EDF! EDF! EDF!

The fifth mainline installment in the man vs. bugs saga known as Earth Defense Force was announced to be coming to the PC. Not only that, but Earth Defense Force 5 is coming to the PC this week on Thursday, July 11. That's a mere three days away from today! You can presently add it to your Wishlist on Steam if you want.

As usual, you will play as a member of the Earth Defense Force (EDF) as they battle giant ants, massive spiders, and all sorts of creepy crawlies. At your disposal will be a huge arsenal of weapons, vehicles, mechs, and customizable class...
 

Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

Then quickly announces this will happen again.

If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
 

Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

No solid ETA on when they will be either.

If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...
 

Review: The Sinking City (PC)

That sinking feeling.

Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • ZeniMax Suing Oculus VR and Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey

    ZeniMax Suing Oculus VR and Oculus Founder Palmer Luckey

    Looks like the battle between ZeniMax and Oculus VR is heating up. Oculus VR and its founder, Palmer Luckey, are being sued by ZeniMax Media and id Software.

    ZeniMax claims that Oculus VR illegally misappropriated trade secrets. The lawsuit (PDF), filed today, also says that Luckey and Oculus were in breach of contract and unfair competition.

    ZeniMax issued a statement on the matter.
    "All efforts by Zenimax to resolve this matter amicably have been unsuccessful."

    The lawsuit is also apparently in direct response to the $2 billion purchase of Oculus VR by Facebook.

    Valve has now opened the doors to finally allow every Steam user the ability to stream and play their Steam games across multiple computers on the same network.
    Players who have multiple computers at home can immediately take advantage of the new feature.

  • Valve Adds Additional Stretch Goals as The International Dota 2 Prize Pool Surpasses $6 Million

    The prize pool for The International Dota 2 tournament has surpassed $6 million thanks to the sale of The Compendium. It has already smashed previous records but this train isn't yet ready to come to a rest just yet.

    Valve has added nine additional stretch goals, up to $10 million for the 22nd reward. Base Customization was the $6 million goal that was met a short time ago. At $6.8 million, a Daily Hero Challenge will be added. The $8.8 million goal will be a live broadcast of The International afterparty with Darude (where he will play nothing but Sandstorm). The $10 million goal will add a victory...

    Oculus Rift is Coming to Select Chuck E. Cheese's Locations

    Chuck E. Cheese's locations in Dallas, San Diego, and Orlando will be the first to test out the Oculus Rift before potentially making the move to more locations.
    "Kids today have unprecedented access to game consoles and tablets," said Roger Cardinale, president of Chuck E. Cheese's owner CEC Entertainment. "Our challenge is to deliver an experience not available at home, and there is no doubt virtual reality does just that. Oculus Rift technology is the next frontier in the gaming industry, and we're thrilled to be able to say it's part of the Chuck E. Cheese's lineup."
    These three markets will be part of a six-week ...

  • Watch Dogs Creative Director Shares More Specific PC Requirements

    Watch Dogs Creative Director Shares More Specific PC Requirements

    We already know that Watch Dogs has some rather lofty system requirements for the PC version of the game. Earlier today, Jonathan Morin, the Creative Director for Watch Dogs, shared some more specific details on how the game will run on less than optimal hardware.
    According to Morin, dual-cores CPUs will not be able to run Watch_Dogs (so it will be interesting to see how our simulated dual-core system will behave). Not only that, but the game may not even boot if PC gamers are not equipped with 6GB of RAM. When a fan asked Morin whether the game would run on his PC system that was equipped with 4GB of RAM, Morin replied and said th

  • Rare Suffers Layoffs

    Rare Suffers Layoffs

    Following the launch of Kinect Sports Rivals, developer Rare has reportedly suffered from some layoffs. Parent company Microsoft confirmed there was a "change to our development process and methodology at Rare" but did not disclose any actual reason for the layoffs.

    Eurogamer notes that about 16 employees were let go from the company. In comparison, the entire Kinect Sports Rivals team included roughly 150 employees. So while it wasn't a huge number of people it's never a good thing when [I]any/I] layoffs have to happen.
