Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...
 

Diablo 4 Officially Announced - First Details, Screens, and More

The franchise returns to its dark roots.

Another unsurprising reveal at this year's BlizzCon was the announcement of Diablo IV. The sequel to the colorful action-RPG that is Diablo III promises to tone back the color gamut a wee bit, with hopes of appeasing fans of Diablo II.

As with the other reveals made today, Diablo IV does not yet have a release date. However, we do know that it's in development for the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. So far we know of three classes: Druid, Barbarian, and Sorceress. We also know that you will be traveling...

    Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig Departs Naughty Dog (Updated)

    Update: Naughty Dog has responded to the allegations that Druckmann and Straley had anything to do with Hennig's departure.
    Earlier this week we had to confirm the regrettable news that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog. She will be missed and, as we stated before, we appreciate the significant contributions that she has made to Naughty Dog and the industry in general. We wish her the best. However, we feel it necessary to clear up a very important point that was unprofessionally misreported when the story broke. Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann were NOT involve

  • Wrong Version of South Park: The Stick of Truth was Sent to Germany, Includes Swastikas

    Including imagery of the swastika in games or other media in Germany is considered a violation of federal law. That's why games that feature Germans in World War II have to be heavily edited prior to release in that region.

    Unfortunately, it seems as though the wrong version was reproduced and sent to Germany that does not include censoring of a few scenes containing the swastika. Whoops!

    Here's a translated excerpt from Gameswelt that details the issue.
    How us an anonymous source has happened, seems the USK version of South Park:

    Kojima Wants a PC Version of Metal Gear Solid 5

    In a recent interview with GameSpot, Hideo Kojima expressed a big interest in creating a PC version of Metal Gear Solid 5.
    "PC, that's my original background. I originally created PC games," Kojima said. "A long time ago I didn't want to rely on platforms to release games, so if people want it, I cannot make a formal announcement, but that is definitely something that I would like to do."
    Right now, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is slated for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is currently slated to b...

  • Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    It is perhaps not that uncommon after a major title is shipped to see some additional help let go. Extra hands are brought on during development that are suddenly no longer needed once the game is released. It may be a common occurrence but it is no less sad to hear.

    The latest round of layoffs have impacted 27 people at Eidos Montreal, the development studio behind Thief and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix confirmed the unfortunate news today with RPS.

  • Rocksteady Claims That a Single Character in Arkham Knight Has Same Polygon Count as Entire Arkham Asylum Environment

    In an interview with Game Informer, Rocksteady shared some information about Batman: Arkham Knight. One of the things they shared was that a single character in Arkham Knight has the same polygon count as an "entire Arkham Asylum environment."

    Lead character artist, Albert Feliu, shared some insight.
    "At the beginning, we started making characters that were about three to four times the polygon count and texture sizes of Arkham city," Feliu told the magazine. "As we kept going with every character we just pushed it more. It's the kind of
