Tim Sweeney is always mad.

The antitrust lawsuit against Valve from Wolfire Games got a little spicy this week.

  • Is Ubisoft Planning a Return to Steam?

    Is Ubisoft Planning a Return to Steam?

    Recent behind the scenes changes suggest this may be a possibility.

    In 2019, the final Ubisoft game on Steam was released. That game was Trials Rising. Since then, if you were a PC owner and a fan of Ubisoft's output, you were only able to purchase their titles from their first-party Ubisoft Connect or through everyone's favorite storefront, the Epic Games Store. As the months turned to years, it seemed like Ubisoft's return to Steam just wasn't going to happen.

    This week,...

    I see stars above...

    Destiny 2 is really no stranger to its fair share of bugs and issues over the years.

It has been disabled and reenabled countless times. There is even a Telesto Report website that lists off every time the weapon has had a bug.

    A new update for Destiny 2 was released today. It...

    Pwn Some n00bs While Eating Nuggies in Your McDonald's Gaming Chair

    I do not regret that headline one iota.

    McDonald's, the fast-food place most closely associated with a clown, is making a gaming chair. It's no ordinary gaming chair. It is, the McCrispy chair. McDonald's, at least in Great Britain, is offering one lucky winner of a Facebook competition the chance to place their buttocks onto the off yellow and black padding of the McCrispy gaming chair. This is all being done to celebrate the launch of a new "chicken burger" that just also...

    In case you wanted your hopes crushed, here comes Square Enix.

    Last month, Square Enix trademarked something called Symbiogenesis in Japan. Naturally, this led to a lot of speculation about what this could be. The strongest hope was that this was for some sort of a Parasite Eve revival, be it a new sequel or perhaps a remake, maybe even a reboot.

    Sadly, Symbiogenesis is none of those things. Instead, Symbiogenesis is the name of a new NFT collectible art project from Square...
