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.

We already knew that.

What we didn't know until just a short time ago is that Geoff Keighley has also organized a special bonus treat for everyone. Today, he announced The Game Festival. The Game Festival, going live right...
 

MLB The Show is No Longer a PlayStation Exclusive

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...

  • The NBA Jam Announcer in Rage 2 is No Joke

    The NBA Jam Announcer in Rage 2 is No Joke


    I fully admit that I was about to ignore this email today. I believed it to be nothing more than yet another April Fools' joke, but it's apparently super real.

    Bethesda announced today that the legendary announcer from the NBA Jam games, Tim Kitzrow, will be a special narrator voice in Rage 2. They're calling this special pre-order bonus the "'He's on Fire' cheat code" though it's probably just an option you can toggle on and off instead of an actual cheat code. Though with this game, I wouldn't completely rule out the notion that you may...

  • Valve Embraces Dota 2 Gambling

    Valve Embraces Dota 2 Gambling


    There is no denying that Dota 2 is an esports juggernaut. As the game enters into its sixth year this Summer, the popular "multiplayer online battle arena" (MOBA) shows no signs of slowing down. Last year, the annual Dota 2 tournament, The International, offered the biggest esports payout of any single video game tournament. In fact, The International occupies the top five positions on the top esports earnings list.

    This means that with the rise of Dota 2 esports comes the rise of the Dota 2 betting site. If there is a competition or a tournament...

    Stalker 2 Announced Again for the Third Time


    It was about ten years ago when Stalker 2 was first announced. Then, there was a long stretch of absolutely nothing. Last year, Stalker 2 was announced for the second time. Then, there was another stretch of absolutely nothing. Today, Stalker 2 has been announced for the third time.

    This triple dip on the announcement came via the official Stalker Twitter account coming to life. the account linked to the official Stalker 2 website, seemingly again promising a 2021 release window, and then showed off some new art for the game (seen at top). ...

    Pathologic 2 Announced, Releasing this May


    Pathologic 2 was shown off today during the Gearbox Publishing segment of today's Gearbox PAX panel. The game, still in development from tinyBuild, will be released on May 23, 2019 through Steam.

    A new trailer for the game shows off just a taste of the game's creepy setting and disturbing cast of characters. The game is in first-person and can best be described as a "narrative-driven dramatic thriller." It's probably a good thing those are the exact words the dev team uses to describe their title then.

    You are a medic trying...
