These companions will have unique abilities, you can form relationships with them, and you'll get to experience their different stories.

GreedFall is slated to be released on September 10, 2019 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You can pre-order...
 

Ion Fury Devs Apologize for Numerous Sexist, Homophobic, and Transphobic Remarks

Sweeping changes are promised as a result.

Voidpoint, the studio behind the just released Ion Fury, has apologized for a series of "incidents" wherein multiple developers were found to use transphobic, ableist, homophobic, and sexist language in the game's official Discord channel. This is on top of some homophobic language found within the game itself.

Over the weekend, a thread had popped up on gaming forum ResetEra that showed multiple instances where the developers had made transphobic remarks via Discord. Members of the dev team were also shown to make...
 

Respawn Apologizes to Ass-hat Gamers for 'Ass-hat' Remarks

Statement issued from Respawn's Vince Zampella.

Respawn's CEO Vince Zampella issued a bit of an apology today after members of the Apex Legends development team called a bunch of toxic ass-hat gamers, well... they called them ass-hats. Donning their biggest surprised Pikachu face possible, these Gamers™ got extra angry when they realized they couldn't just keep dishing it out and not expect some form of retaliation in return. Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.

Sony Bought Insomniac Games Today

Get ready for more Spider-Man.

Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has officially purchased Insomniac Games today. You're probably surprised to hear that the studio that developed last year's PlayStation 4 exclusive Spider-Man wasn't already owned by Sony prior to this week.

Insomniac Games was first started in 1994 and remained an independent game developer for this 25 year span of time. They created Spyro the Dragon, the Ratchet & Clank games, along with the Resistance franchise. All of these franchises were PlayStation exclusives, at least initially. Every so...

  • Creating the Alien in Alien: Isolation

    Creating the Alien in Alien: Isolation

    I can imagine that the visual look for the Alien in Alien: Isolation didn't take much thought. They did have a bunch of material to work with already for that. However, you probably don't know yet what an Alien thinks why they do what they do. That's where this latest trailer for Alien: Isolation comes into play.

    Here is "Creating the Alien."


    Alien: Isolation is slated for release in late 2014 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC....

  • League of Legends Professional Gamer Attempts Suicide After Revealing Shady Gambling Practices and Match Fixing by Manager

    A former Korean professional League of Legends player, Pimir, wrote a "goodbye" letter moments before attempting suicide. In the letter, he revealed that the team's manager, Noh, forced the team to throw matches in order to win a variety of gambling bets. Yes, he was betting against his own team. The manager threatened the team with pulled sponsorships if the team did not agree to throw the matches he ordered them to. The problem is, Pimir's note said that those sponsorships didn't really exist. Noh said that their practice computers were a part of the sponsorship and would be taken away if they didn't keep throwing matches. Noh repeatedly exploited the kids he managed for his own gains, even going so far as t...

  • Valve Added a Report Function for Games on Steam

    Valve Added a Report Function for Games on Steam

    Ever wanted to report a game on Steam for some odd reason or another? Well, now you can!

    A "report this product" feature was added today to every game on Steam. Simply click on a little flag icon (to the right of where it says "Share" and "Embed") to get the following report window.


    There is really no telling what function this will really have as I doubt many titles will be (nor should be) pulled simply for offending a few people, but I suppose we'll have to wait and see. I mean, if offending people or having adult content was all it took to get something pulled, then South Park:...

  • PSA: Steam has a BAFTA Sale Going on Until Tomorrow

    PSA: Steam has a BAFTA Sale Going on Until Tomorrow

    The British Academy Games Awards (BAFTA) are being celebrated through a small sale on Steam. The sale claims it's on for 24 hours but I have no idea when it began. It should be safe to assume that you should buy what you want right when you see it instead of waiting.

    It includes such titles as Surgeon Simulator 2013, The Stanley Parable, Tomb Raider, Gunpoint, Brothers, and many more great titles.

    Again, the clock is ticking on these, so hurry up and check out the BAFTA sale page before the sale is no more.

  • This War of Mine Announced - Takes a Decidedly Different Approach to War Games

    11 Bit Studios has just announced This War of Mine. Gone are your conventional staples of war games where you play as part of a national military or as some elite squad.

    No, this one is a bit different.
    In This War of Mine, the focus is shifted away from military operations portrayed in most games. Instead, it is a dark survival game where players control a group of civilians trying to stay alive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, offering players time to craft, trade, upgrade their shelter, feed and cure their people. At night they must scavenge nearby areas in search for food, medicines,
