Report: Xbox, Sony, and Nintendo to Skip E3 2023

E3's big return sounds like it's more of a dud.

In September 2022, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced that E3 was returning. Not only was it returning, but it would be the show's first in-person event in four years.

Now, we're learning that none of the three major console makers will have any sort of presence at the trade show. Sony and Nintendo not having a presence probably isn't too surprising. Those two companies had already started to do their...

Games to Look Forward to in 2023

I won't lie. I fully expected there to be far more news to post today (January 2, 2023) given that it's the start of the week and the holidays are "technically" over. What I failed to realize is that a ton of people are still off work due to the New Year falling on a Sunday. Thus, here I am opting to do a little write-up about what games I'm looking forward to in 2023 instead of sitting around doing nothing. Who knows, maybe you're looking forward to these games as well. If I missed some games ...
 

Total Gaming Network's 2022 Games of the Year

It is time once more to talk about the best games that have come out over the past year. As the case has been with previous years, this list of games only includes the titles that I have personally played to some degree. In addition, the games on this list are games that were released in 2022 unless otherwise stated for some specific reason. As I am the only one posting content on the site, this is as much a "Total Gaming Network Game of the Year" as it is my personal Game of the Year selection. ...

    Meta outlines other changes coming to their forgotten about device.

    If you purchased the first release of the Meta Quest VR headset, you are probably already used to getting shafted on features and support. Ever since the Meta Quest 2 was released, parent company Meta has essentially abandoned releasing updates for the previous generation hardware.

    Today, that feeling that Quest 1 owners had got that much more concrete with an email sent out by Meta. In the email, Meta...

    There are at least three of them coming this year.

    It's near the start of the month. It's a new month, a new year, but probably the same you. 2023 will have a number of remakes and remasters released, same as the previous few years. While there are remakes and remasters of games such as Like a Dragon: Ishin and Risk of Rain Returns slated to be released in 2023, we're going to focus only on the horror remakes in the pipeline.

    EA Unable to Recover 60% of Corrupt Madden NFL Franchise Saves

    Looks like EA really fumbled this one.

    There was a period of about 22 hours where, if you logged into Madden NFL 23, there was a chance your Connected Franchise Mode saves became permanently corrupted. The 22-hour long span took place from December 28 through December 29. Those dates happened to come just after EA told players they were good to log in and play. Oops.

    Now, the good news here is that if you logged into the game during this time there is a 40% chance that...
