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"...

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...

  • My Final Thoughts on Titanfall as the Beta Nears Its End

    My Final Thoughts on Titanfall as the Beta Nears Its End

    As the Titanfall beta comes to a close (later on Feb 19), I offer up some final thoughts of my impressions on the beta and the game. It also shows off the Hardpoint Domination mode with the two beta maps, Burn Cards, challenges, and character progression.

    It should also be noted that during the upload (or encoding) process, some weird video skips popped up. Those major hiccups were not seen in the game itself, though there were a few other minor framerate hiccups here and there....

  • Kojima Releases Video Visual Comparison of Every Console Version of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

    Not content with releasing comparison statistics and still image comparisons, Hideo Kojima has now released a new video comparison for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. He shows off each version of the game and the visual differences between them.


    Kojima just Tweeted something extra about this video. He says that "special treatment for the sky is made for PS4 based on atmosphere simulation." So yes, it seems as though the PlayStation 4 version has yet another one-up on the competition here in the form of more robust sky and weather simulations....

  • Blizzard Introduces $60 Automatic Level 90 Boost in World of Warcraft

    Blizzard Introduces $60 Automatic Level 90 Boost in World of Warcraft

    Why pay some stranger a lot of money to level your World of Warcraft characters, when you can pay Blizzard just $60 to get you to level 90 immediately!


    This may or may not be the final price. WoW Insider speculates that this wasn't even supposed to be live yet since pre-orders were not yet live. Thus, there is a small chance that this isn't the final price. However, the ability to purchase the automatic boost was apparently live on a number of servers, so make of that what you will.

  • Final Fantasy 7 Remake Would Take Longer to Develop than the Final Fantasy 13 Trilogy

    In speaking with Joystiq, Final Fantasy producer, Yoshinori Kitase, said that while he would love to do an HD version of Final Fantasy 7, the work load would be more than the entire Final Fantasy 13 trilogy.

    Keeping in mind that the trilogy of Final Fantasy 13 games took over 10 years to develop and release and you should have a better idea of how big of a task it would be to remake Final Fantasy 7 with modern visuals and high definition audio.
    "I still think it's going to be a very challenging task," Kitase said, before reiterating that remastering the PS2 games was a big enough challenge, and that the gap between today's tech and the

  • A Work Around for the 'Black Screen' Bug for Xbox One Users After Latest Update

    Though the latest Xbox One update brought about some much needed new functionality to the system, it also brought about a curious issue that many gamers are experiencing. Some are reporting that after they turn their system on, they are met with only a blank, black screen.

    Microsoft is aware of the issue and have already provided an easy work around.
    Yes, it's just that easy to fix. Hold the power button down for 10 seconds and reboot your Xbox One. That should fix the issue. Besides the dreaded black screen bug, the update that came out on February 15 includes a battery power indicator f...

  • Unofficial Gameplay Footage for The Order: 1886

    Unofficial Gameplay Footage for The Order: 1886

    Here is just the briefest glimpses of gameplay from The Order: 1886. You've already seen two new non-gameplay trailers today so why not see how the game looks in action. The footage is not direct from Sony or Ready at Dawn and may also not be direct feed either (crackling sound in places, cuts, etc.).

    It's not very telling from the footage shown if it's all narrow corridors and Telltale style quick time events, so keep your fingers crossed that the full game isn't merely Gears of War in the Victorian era.
