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...

    Xbox One Voted 2014 'Product of the Year' by Parade Magazine

    Parade, a free periodical that is included in the Sunday subscriptions for 640 newspapers in the United States, has already tallied up the votes for the entirety of 2014 for their "Product of the Year Awards." No, it's alright that the year is just shy of two months over, there will be no silencing the people! They have declared that the Xbox One is a Product of the Year! The results of who should win this prestigious reward were determined by those who bothered to fill in the limited survey of pre-determined products after the list was narrowed by a "jury of industry professionals." A "panel of 40,000 American shoppers" were then surveyed and the Xbox O...

  • Blizzard Justifies $60 Price for Level 90 Character Boost

    Blizzard Justifies $60 Price for Level 90 Character Boost

    Last week, the price of the automatic Level 90 character boost for World of Warcraft was discovered to be $60 (USD). Today, Blizzard explains and justifies the $60 price to those who are upset that it's "too expensive."

    Lead Encounter Designer on WoW, Ion Hazzikostas, explains their position to Eurogamer.
    "In terms of the pricing, honestly a big part of that is not wanting to devalue the accomplishment of levelling," Hazzikostas said. "If our goal here was to sell as many boosts as possible, we could halve the price or more than that - make it $10 or something. And then hardly anyone would ever level a character again. "But levell

  • King Files to Abandon Its Trademark on the Word 'Candy'

    King Files to Abandon Its Trademark on the Word 'Candy'

    Perhaps feeling the heat of the Internet, King is now filing for express abandonment of its trademark on the word "Candy."

    The Candy Crush Saga developer confirmed the move to Kotaku.
    King has withdrawn its trademark application for Candy in the U.S., which we applied for in February 2013 before we acquired the early rights to Candy Crusher. Each market that King operates in is different with regard to IP. We feel that having the rights to Candy Crusher is the best option for protecting Candy Crush in the U.S. market. This does not affect our E.U. trademark for Candy and we continue to take all appropriate

  • Next-Gen Price Drop for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Special DLC Revealed

    Konami has dropped the price on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. The price has gone from $40 down to $30 for the retail version of the game. The digital price remains at $30, just as it was previously. This means now that you will pay $30 for either a digital or physical copy of the game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you have an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you will still pay $30 for a retail release, while the digital version on those platforms will go for $20. But that's not all! Konami also revealed a second screen iDROID app. This app (coming for iOS, Android, and Smart Glass platforms) will "re...

    Xbox One March Update Receiving a Much Needed Update to Party and Friends

    The above video from Xbox's Major Nelson and Richard Irving show some of the much needed additions and improvements being made to the Xbox One chat, friends, and party system for the Xbox One.

    This update will arrive in March and contains quite a few improvements that fans have been requesting since the launch of the console back in November. To put it bluntly, this new update re-introduces some features that are in the Xbox 360 that were oddly removed from the Xbox One friends and party systems....

    Titanfall on PC to be 21GB Download and 48GB Installed

    I hope you have the hard drive space to spare because it seems as though Titanfall for the PC (at least) will be a hefty 21GB download. After it's done downloading, it will then blossom into a 48GB install size.

    You don't have to take my word for it though. Let Respawn Entertainment's own Vince Zampella tell you the exact same thing I already said....
