Counter-Strike 2 is Out Now

Counter-Strike is dead, long live Counter-Strike!

Without a press release in sight, Valve has launched Counter-Strike 2 to the world. This free-to-play release is available right now and will replace your current installs of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. True to Valve tradition, today's release is actually a little bit later than initially expected. During its initial announcement in March, Valve said Counter-Strike 2 would be out in summer. It is now fall, but they only missed...

    Minecraft Legends Announced - New Action Strategy Game Set for 2023 Release

    Minecraft continues to branch out into other genres and games.

    Mojang is no stranger to trying new things with the Minecraft franchise. There are novels, children's books, merchandise, and all matter of games.

    Not that it matters. The game is going to look great everywhere.

    At the recent Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Microsoft and Turn 10 Studios announced a new Forza Motorsport game that is set to arrive spring 2023. It's a follow-up to 2017's Forza Motorsport 7 but seems to just be called Forza Motorsport without a number.

    The reveal of this game looked damn impressive, without a doubt. The initial reveal kind of made people think that it was all captured on an Xbox...

    Redfall Campaign Progress is Limited Only to Host in Co-op

    Why? Why is this still a thing for co-op focused games in 2022?

    Redfall is an upcoming vampire slaying game that is still in development at Arkane Austin. In the few times that it has been shown off, an emphasis has been placed on the cooperative experience. It was initially shown off with a trailer that was very much like, "this is a co-op game through and through!"

  • Fallout 76 Returns to Pittsburgh in Next Major Content Update

    Fallout 76 Returns to Pittsburgh in Next Major Content Update

    I can personally vouch that the depiction of Pittsburgh in this game is exactly like the real city.

    The Pitt was one of the expansions released for Fallout 3 back in 2009. It took players to the ruins of a little city called Pittsburgh located in the state of Pennsylvania. The developers at Bethesda must enjoy Pittsburgh a whole heck of a lot because we're going back there in Fallout 76.

    This September, Fallout 76 will let players venture beyond the borders of Appalachia...

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...
    I don't mind. If people want to spend more to play early, let them!
    I'm indifferent to the whole idea.
    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
