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...

    Candy Crush Developer King One Step Away from Trademarking the Word 'Candy'

    King, the development studio behind Candy Crush Saga is one step closer to trademarking the word "candy." Oh, come on! Really?! For


    's sake
    . Last February, King filed an application to trademark the word "candy" across a variety of products. These ranged from shower caps (what?) to video games. On January 15 of this year, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office once again showed how badly the system is broken approved King's request. According to GameZebo, developers that have used the word "candy" in their games are already starting to...

  • Microsoft Reportedly Paid Machinima YouTube Creators for Positive Xbox One Mentions

    Here I am unable to even get an Xbox One from Microsoft because the "Xbox One hardware is limited" and they "aren't able to accommodate additional requests at this time." I guess perhaps I should have just partnered with Machinima because Microsoft has all the resources in the world ready for them. Yes, my bitter self was pleased to see that Microsoft is reportedly offering Machinima partners an additional $3 CPM ($3 per thousand video views) if they post videos featuring Xbox One content. Not only that, but there was another campaign that offered an addition...

  • Garry Newman Says Rust Already Made 40% of What Garry's Mod Made in Nine Years

    In an interview with GI.biz, Garry Newman from Facepunch and Garry's Mod fame discusses a bit about his work in progress title, Rust. First up, he revealed that Garry's Mod already sold over 3.5 million copies and making more than $22 million in revenues. Not bad, right?

    Well, it's a bit less impressive when you read that Rust, which is still very much an Early Access alpha release, has already earned 40% of the lifetime sales of Garry's Mod. Keep in mind that Rust was also only released through Steam a bit over a month ago at this point, though...

    Dead Rising 3 Receives Hefty 13GB Update Today

    If you're an Xbox One owner who also owns Dead Rising 3, you were greeted with a hefty 13GB update today for the title.

    The update, while massive, only pushes the size of the game on the Xbox One HDD to 24.8GB, which really isn't that much more than what it was prior to the update. An interview with Executive Producer, Josh Bridge, explains the reason for the massive update size.

    Guys, Microsoft and Twitch are super serial about it this time! For reals! The latest delay for being able to stream to Twitch from your Xbox One is now coming "in a few more months."
