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,...
 

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...
 

Blizzard Loses Major Sponsor After Ban on 'Free Hong Kong' Hearthstone Pro

Blizzard continues to feel the impact of their ban of Hearthstone player Blitzchung.

It has been noticed by a number of Hearthstone fans that Mitsubishi's logo was no longer showing up during a recent Asia Pacific tournament for the game. Those on Reddit first noticed the missing logo. From there, it was confirmed by Mitsubishi that they have pulled their sponsorship from Blizzard.

This confirmation was made to The Daily Beast. Specifically, the branch that pulled its sponsorship from Blizzard was Mitsubishi Motors Taiwan, the Taiwanese branch...

    CS:GO Overpass Map Preview Video

    CS:GO Cobblestone (de_cbble) Map Preview Video

    Hey guys, remember the old de_cbble map from previous versions of Counter-Strike? I sure as hell didn't remember it as well as I thought I did and it sure does show in this quick and dirty preview video of how Cobble (or Cobblestone as they're now calling it) looks in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

    So yeah, it's Cobble with a fresh coat of paint and approximately 100% fewer crates. I know, I'm sad about that too....

  • New Thief Cinematic Trailer - The Queen of Beggars

    New Thief Cinematic Trailer - The Queen of Beggars

    The second trailer in the "Stories from the City" series for Thief was released today.

    Nobody knows how old the Queen of the Beggars actually is; rumour has it she's as old as The City itself. Some say that although she is blind, she sees through the eyes of rats that riddle the streets. In the second trailer of the Stories from The City series, the wise old crone gives her views on the City as it goes through a time of death and gloom.

    Thief is slated for a February 2014 release on the PC, PS3, PS4, 360, and Xbone....

    Killing Floor: Calamity is a Top Down Title for the Ouya

    Tripwire Interactive released a spin-off title today that is exclusive for the Ouya. Yeah, weird isn't it? The game is a top down action title called Killing Floor: Calamity.


    Tripwire Interactive's VP, Alan Wilson, may have been busy hitting the rum eggnog early when he said the Ouya is "leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed." Huh, alright then.
    "We feel Ouya is leading the charge in disrupting the way in which games are both created and consumed today and, as our history suggests

    Let's Play: The Walking Dead Season 2 - Episode 1 - Part 1

    The second season of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead came out on PC yesterday. So, I'm doing a blind play through of it for those who have no intention of playing it for themselves.

  • DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    DayZ Standalone Nets $5.1 Million in Sales in First 24 Hours

    It seems as though fans were more than eager to jump all over the early alpha release of the standalone version of DayZ on Steam. The game already picked up $5.1 million in sales in the first 24 hours with 88,000 players joining up in the first 12 hours.


    Those figures equate to over 172,000 copies of the game sold already. Considering that this game is listed as Early Access on Steam and is also very much in alpha status, that is quite the impressive feat.
