Rockstar Now Has Their Own PC Games Launcher

Get GTA: San Andreas for free if you use it.

Rockstar now has their own game launcher on the PC. The development studio quietly released this new launcher a short time ago today. They are attempting to entice users to download and use the installer by giving away a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for a limited time.

Interesting enough, the Rockstar Games Launcher includes some features that took other launchers a little bit of time to add after release. This launcher includes cloud save support, a shop, and automatic updates. The prices on the store seem to...
 

Watch Almost an Hour of Death Stranding Gameplay

A lot of gameplay footage that may finally provide a lot of answers.

The marketing for the Kojima Productions game, Death Stranding, has left consumers with more questions than answers. It's a game from the mind of Hideo Kojima, so of course the marketing was going to be odd. The problem was, there are a lot of people that just have no idea about what the game was even about even after the numerous trailers.

Maybe sitting down and watching 50 minutes of gameplay will help clear up that confusion. If that doesn't work, then maybe a breakdown of the gameplay footage from...
 

Final Fantasy VII Remake Tokyo Game Show 2019 Trailer

The trailer is at the bottom after these boring words.

Square Enix showed off an all new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake this week at the Tokyo Game Show. The new trailer offers a fresh look at gameplay, the slums of Midgar, and a peak at the mini-games and summons. Midgar is home to the Shinra Electric Power Company. This kind of totally evil company is in conflict with Avalanche, a resistance group fighting to keep their planet alive. You will also get your first look at some of the Shinra operatives known as The Turks.

Square Enix also included their new artwork...
 

Cube World is Coming to Steam

Let me take you back to the year 2013...

In 2013, a little game called Cube World came out in an "alpha" release. It was a cute, stylized adventure-RPG that offered a ton of freedom, battles, exploration, and more. A big appeal of the alpha was being able to have all of these adventures with your friends in one world. To its credit, the limited content of the alpha was quite enjoyable but the promise of bigger and better was always just around the corner. The problem came when it was just never updated! Eventually the developer went dark.

We would sometimes...

    Hey look, it's a new developer walkthrough video for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Look at the fluid web swinging mechanics and the terrible amount of pop in while zipping through the streets.

  • 3D Realms Doesn't Know When to Call it Quits and Claims It Still Owns Duke Nukem

    In response to the lawsuit made against the company by Gearbox Software, 3D Realms claims that it still has the right to complete and sell a game called Duke Nukem Survivor.

    Duke Nukem Survivor is apparently the Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction game that's been mentioned recently.

    In addition, 3D Realms claims that Gearbox doesn't even own the trademark to "Duke Nukem" anyway. They claim it was never part of the Asset Purchase Agreement for Duke Nukem Forever. And so 3D Realms does not go quietly into that gentle night, but kicking and screaming like a little brat. Not bad for a company that sat around doing nothi...

  • Microtransactions Made $352 Million on Consoles Last Year

    Microtransactions Made $352 Million on Consoles Last Year

    According to research conducted by Superdata, microtransactions accounted for $352 million in sales in 2013 just on consoles.

    Until now, several barriers contributed to the slow adoption of microtransactions on console: audience expectations, payment preferences and available options, game inventory. The retail model of shelling out $60 for a game has long been the dominant monetization method for consoles. Likewise, the system of first having to convert real money into, for example, Xbox Live points outside the game and then spending those points on an in-game item made for too many steps. But the Xbox One and

    Weighing in at 5,760 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 8 TeraFLOPS of power comes the $2,999 (USD) GeForce GTX Titan Z.

Though you know full well there will be some enthusiasts that purchase one (or more) of these the moment they're available....

  • Thief Already 50% Off in Xbox Live Store Deal

    Thief Already 50% Off in Xbox Live Store Deal

    On March 28, the latest Thief title will go on sale on the Xbox Live Marketplace for the Xbox One for 50% off. This is in addition to 50% off Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, 33% off Call of Duty: Ghosts and 20% off Call of Duty: Ghosts Digital Hardened Edition.

    The big sale on Tomb Raider isn't too surprising since it's already a re-release title. The surprising news is most certainly concerning Thief and its 50% discount. This could be a worrying sign that the newest release in the franchise isn't selling anywhere near as well as was hoped.

    Call of Duty suddenly having a number of sales is also a bit telling. This is the franchise that kept steady at full price for years following...

    Insomniac Games Celebrates 20th Anniversary with a... Music Video?

    This year, Insomniac Games celebrates 20 years of being in the industry. As a result, they made a music video! Wait... what?!


    I would expect nothing less from the studio that brought us the Spyro franchise, Ratchet & Clank, and the upcoming Sunset Overdrive for the Xbox One.

    If, for any reason, you want just the audio track for the song, you can grab it from Soundcloud....

  • Developer Says Steam Greenlight Going Away within a Year as Steam Becomes More Open

    According to Tweets (via CVG) made by Jonathan Biddle of Curve Studios, Valve may be getting rid of their Steam Greenlight service within the next 12 months.
    We met with Valve at GDC, and they say Greenlight will be gone within 12 months. They'll still offer curated space, but otherwise be open.
    This tends to go hand in hand with what Gabe Newell said a couple of months ago about wanting to make Greenlight go away as Steam evolves. This also ties in with how Valve is giving more control over games and sales to the developer instead of having to go through Valve. Let's just hope this new "openness" doesn't ...
