System Shock and Skatebird Among Over a Dozen Games with New Limited Time Demos

In honor of The Game Awards, about a dozen games released limited time demos on Steam.

Later tonight, The Game Awards will be streamed live. That all kicks off at 8:30PM (ET) and can be watched online at places like Twitch, Steam, Mixer, Twitter, YouTube, consoles, other websites, and even at select movie theaters.

Soon, MLB The Show will be available on more than just Sony's platforms.

It has just been announced that starting as soon as 2021's release, MLB The Show will no longer be a PlayStation platform exclusive. Though other platforms have not yet been specified, both the official Nintendo and Xbox Twitter accounts were quick to comment on this new development.

For the past dozen or so years, MLB The Show has been developed by San Diego Studio, a subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Sony has also had the exclusive rights to develop and publish...
 

New 2K Studio Confirmed to be Working on Next BioShock Game

The first project for the new Cloud Chamber is the next entry in the BioShock series.

2K just announced today that they have opened up a new game development studio under their publishing umbrella. The new studio is called Cloud Chamber and will have not one but two different locations for their operations. The team will operate both out of 2K's San Francisco Bay Area HQ in Novato, CA in addition to a new location in Montreal, Quebec. This marks the first Canadian office for 2K.

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...
 

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

  • Disney Interactive Lays Off Around 700 Employees

    Disney Interactive Lays Off Around 700 Employees

    About 700 employees, or 26% of its global staff, were laid off from Disney Interactive on Thursday. While layoffs were expected to happen, nobody expected the layoffs to be on this large of a scale.

    The move came after Disney decided to combine two business, mobile gaming and social gaming. As a result of these layoffs and the changed focus, the company will "cut annual game output by as much as 50%." Last year, they released nearly two dozen titles.

  • DirectX 12 to Debut at GDC 2014

    DirectX 12 to Debut at GDC 2014

    On March 20, 2014 at 10AM, DirectX 12 will be revealed at GDC. There really isn't much to go on right now outside of a very green DirectX 12 landing page on the MSDN website.

    Interestingly, the notable logos on the page show the usual suspects of AMD, Nvidia, and even Intel. The real interesting one is Qualcomm Snapdragon, meaning that DirectX 12 might have a big focus on future mobile devices.

    It will be interesting to see if DirectX 12 requires all new hardware and/or a whole new operating system (Windows 9) just to be used....
