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...

    Games for Windows Live Not Shutting Down

    Microsoft just punked the entire gaming world. Their only good decision was their choice to shut the annoying service down early July 2014. However, they have now come out to say that they will not be shutting the service down. I'm sure PC gamers and developers that scrambled to change their titles are absolutely thrilled at this latest 180 from Microsoft.
    Microsoft said to Game Informer: "We are continuing to support the Games for Windows Live service. As previously announced, as part of the retirement of Microsoft Points the Xbox.com PC marketplace was c

  • Updated: Official 30 Minute HD Gameplay Video for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    Update: We have replaced the video with an official, direct-feed, HD release of the gameplay footage courtesy of Konami!

    Original: Seen below is the same gameplay presentation for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that you'd have seen if you went to E3. The footage in the video below is a fan recording from the Twitch live stream that Konami and Hideo Kojima put on this morning. Again, this footage was recorded from a stream, so the quality is undoubtedly hampered by this. Feel free to watch it while we continue to wait for some direct-feed footage...

    AMD Owners Get Shadowplay Alternative with Game DVR Beta

    A new update was released for the AMD Gaming Evolved client that includes some great new functionality. First up is a redesigned UI, next is a new beta for Game DVR.

    EA and DICE Admit Battlefield 4 Launch was "Unacceptable"

    I know your hearts are probably stopped after reading that headline, but just take a deep breath and try to soldier on through the news story, okay? Yes, EA and DICE have now admitted that Battlefield 4's launch was "unacceptable."

    In speaking with Eurogamer, EA CEO Andrew Wilson and DICE GM Karl-Magnus Troedsson have said that the game suffered due to its ambition. (Note: This is a very, very long interview. I strongly urge you to read through the full Eurogamer article yourself in addition to the cherry-picked quotes I selected below.) Alright, l...

  • PSA: Play a 48-Hour Trial for Titanfall - Origin Game Time Program Detailed

    EA kicked off their new "Origin Game Time" program today. This program allows players to give a trial run to a game of EA's choosing for a period of 48 hours. The first game offered for this new program? Titanfall.

    From the sounds of it, despite the trial beginning this weekend, the 48-hour time period itself doesn't actually start until you launch the game for the first time. That actually sounds like an incredibly smart idea.
