Counter-Strike 2 is Out Now

Counter-Strike is dead, long live Counter-Strike!

Without a press release in sight, Valve has launched Counter-Strike 2 to the world. This free-to-play release is available right now and will replace your current installs of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. True to Valve tradition, today's release is actually a little bit later than initially expected. During its initial announcement in March, Valve said Counter-Strike 2 would be out in summer. It is now fall, but they only missed...

Volition is Shutting Down Effective Immediately

After 30 years, the studio is being shut down.

Volition formed in 1993, with their first game coming in 1995. That game was none other than the widely acclaimed Descent, a first-person spaceship shooter. Volition went on to make several more games in the Descent franchise. Volition also created the PlayStation 2 RPG Summoner. They created Red Faction and several sequels. They also created the Saints Row franchise, up to and including the latest franchise reboot title, aptly named Saints...

    We finally get a look at The Last of Us in a format that isn't a still image.

    For those who have been craving literally any new media from the upcoming HBO series for The Last of Us, today is your lucky day.

    The free-to-play brawler surpassed all challengers.

    MultiVersus is the newly released platform fighter/brawler from WB Games and Player First Games.

    Diablo 4 Ditches Loot Boxes for Battle Passes

    Your money has no power here.

    Blizzard says that instead of any sort of loot box mechanics in Diablo 4, they will instead embrace the Season Pass system. This makes a lot of sense seeing as how Blizzard also announced the removal of loot boxes from Overwatch and Overwatch 2 earlier this month.

    Blizzard made this announcement as part of its latest development update. They also confirmed that Diablo 4 will be a full-priced title, so while you are free to spend money on cosmetics...

    A teaser for Season 2 or something more?

    Easter eggs and wild ARGs are really nothing new to the Battlefield franchise, but so far, we haven't really had any in Battlefield 2042. A few hours ago, Reddit user TheSacredShrimp shared a screenshot of a unique Playercard background that contains a bit of a cryptic message.

    TheSacredShrimp shared this image through the LowSodium2042 subreddit.

    Old id and Bethesda Games Added to PC Game Pass

    Five new Game Pass titles, or four if you ignore Battlespire.

    QuakeCon 2022 began earlier today with a little welcome message from Marty Stratton. I'm sure it was great. I don't know, I didn't watch it. What I do know is that Bethesda and id Software added some classic PC titles to Game Pass today. These are in addition to three free games available now through the Microsoft Store, plus three "new" games available for sale through the Microsoft Store.

    Dead Island 2 seems to be back from the dead... again.

    Dead Island 2 was announced way back at E3 2014. The announcement trailer was pretty great. It was supposed to be out Spring 2015. Then it was delayed until 2016. Then the Dead Island 2 developer, Yager, was dropped by Deep Silver. Then in 2016 it was reported that Sumo Digital took over the development of Dead Island 2. Then in 2019, Sumo Digital partnered with 2K for some mystery projects, with at least one presumed to be Dead...

    EA Honors Massive FIFA 23 Pricing Error

    A discount of almost 99.9% will be honored by EA.

    For a brief period of time, pre-orders of FIFA 23 went on sale via the Epic Games Store in India for just 4.80 rupees. A quick conversion turns those 4.80 rupees into just $0.06 (USD).

    If this price error wasn't bad enough, it wasn't for the basic version of FIFA 23, which retails for 3,499 rupees (or about $44 USD). The pricing error was actually for the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23, which normally retailed for 4,799 rupees...

    The world's biggest modding site won't tolerate the intolerant.

    Spider-Man Remastered recently released on PC and, for the most part, people have been enjoying the game without issue. Of course, there was at least one person that didn't much like the depiction of a handful of Pride flags present in the game. This person created a mod that replaces the Pride flags with the American flag, aka the Stars and Stripes.

    The mod was uploaded to Nexusmods, which is arguably the...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
