Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

    Get a Reward for the Full Version of Destiny by Playing the Beta on Saturday

  • Final Stand DLC Delayed for Battlefield 4

    Final Stand DLC Delayed for Battlefield 4

    EA announced that the final DLC release for Battlefield 4, Final Stand, has been delayed. The DLC will now be released during EA's third fiscal quarter, which places the release between October and December of this year. The news comes from EA's Q1 2015 earnings call.

    Many speculate that the delay is being made in order to fill the gaping void left from the delay of Battlefield Hardline to 2015. Hopefully that isn't the real reason for the delay but so far no actual reason has been given for the delay, only speculation. Final Stand was origina...

  • A Look at The Crew PC Beta

    A Look at The Crew PC Beta

    Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to receive a key to play the PC beta for Ubisoft's open-world racing game, The Crew. After a couple of hours of playing, I decided that would be a fine time to record about 15 minutes of gameplay to give just a super general overview of what the game is all about and a few thoughts I had on the game up until that point.

    There may be more coming that shows off missions and story from the beta, so be sure to keep an eye out for those in the coming days. The beta is still going on and you can also try your hand at...
