Dangerous RCE Vulnerability Found in Dark Souls 3 that Could Impact Elden Ring

A new exploit has been discovered that could allow unauthorized access to your PC.

A very dangerous new exploit has been discovered for those playing Dark Souls 3 and could also impact Elden Ring. This is a remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability that could allow for people to run code on your machine without permission. This is a very serious exploit that could, if used in the wild, grant attackers full access to your computer.

Microsoft Buys Activision Blizzard in Deal Worth Almost $70 Billion

The dream of Candy Crush on Game Pass is that much closer to a reality.

Microsoft is a stone's throw away from finalizing a deal for the purchase of Activision Blizzard. The deal sees Microsoft picking up the Call of Duty and Candy Crush developer for a staggering $68.7 billion (USD). Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer spilled the beans in a new posting at the Xbox Wire earlier today.

This deal seems to have been made at the "perfect" time, at least for Microsoft....
 

Preview: The Anacrusis Early Access Release

What to expect from this Early Access release of the latest four-player cooperative shooter.

Stray Bombay has been hard at work developing what could be the next true successor to Left 4 Dead with their upcoming cooperative PvE title, The Anacrusis. While I'm sure they want to avoid those sorts of direct comparisons, it is a little difficult to avoid them given how much of the same DNA is shared between the two franchises. Hell, one of Stray Bombay's founders, Chet Faliszek, used to...
 

PlayStation VR2 Offers 4K HDR with Foveated Rendering

PSVR2 is shaping up to be one of the most powerful VR experiences.

During their late evening CES 2022 conference, Sony revealed technical specs for PlayStation VR2 and the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller.

Sony says that PSVR2 will offer a "true next-gen experience with high-fidelity visuals, new sensory features, and enhanced tracking." Given the impressive specifications that they revealed tonight, we're inclined to believe it.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Devs Double Down and then Backtrack on NFT Idea

Yet another company has backtracked on using NFTs after seeing the immense public backlash.

On Wednesday, GSC Game World announced that they will hold an auction to win an NFT that would eventually lead to the owner becoming an in-game NPC for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl called a "metahuman." On Thursday (that's today), GSC Game World announced that they would not include any NFT related items in connection with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl.

    Steam Deck to Launch on February 25

    Valve just locked in a shipping date for the first batch of Steam Decks.

    Valve has just announced that the first batch of Steam Deck units will begin to ship out starting February 28, with full orders starting on the 25th. This falls neatly in line with their previous statement saying that the first batch would begin to ship out by the end of February.

    There will be a little bit of a process involved in this before your unit ships out, of course. On the 25th, Valve will...

    Steam Deck Now Supports Easy Anti-Cheat

    Valve has been working with Epic to get Easy Anti-Cheat working on Steam Deck.

    Valve continues to address some outstanding concerns concerning the Steam Deck. One of those issues is the fact that some of the most popular anti-cheat services didn't exactly play nice with Proton or the Steam Deck. However, thanks to efforts by Valve and other major players in the industry, the two most popular anti-cheat services are now capable of playing nice with Proton and the Steam Deck.

    The First Batch of Games to be Steam Deck Verified are Here

    The first batch of many, many more to come.

    With the Steam Deck set to begin shipping by the end of February, we sort of expected that we would soon see the first games to be Steam Deck Verified. Lo and behold, those first games have started to crop up.

    While these games may not show their Verified status on their Store pages (though there is a workaround, which we talk about below), the SteamDB website is able to track these verifications as they happen. Right now, the...

  • Some Twitter User Says Half-Life: Alyx is Coming to PlayStation VR2

    Some Twitter User Says Half-Life: Alyx is Coming to PlayStation VR2

    Hot off the rumor mill from the most trustworthy of sources.

    Fairly random Twitter user @Shpeshal_Nick says that Half-Life: Alyx is coming to PlayStation VR2. This person isn't completely random. They are Nick Baker, the co-founder of XboxEra.com and co-host of a podcast of the same name. So, it's not like Joe Dingleberry is out there making these claims, but this is hardly an official source making them either.

    Winners Revealed for the 2021 Steam Awards

    Valve has revealed the community-voted picks for the best games of 2021.

    It's almost time for the Steam Winter Sale to come to an end. You have just two days remaining to save a lot of money on what can be described as a "metric buttload" of video games. This also means it's time to see who won in each category for the 2021 Steam Awards.

    Remember that each category had titles that were selected by the Steam community in November 2021. You were able to vote on...

    Valve Reveals Steam's Best Games for 2021

    Contrary to popular belief, not everything was delayed in 2021.

    Once again, Valve employees have poured through the data over the course of hundreds of hours to produce a list of the biggest and best-selling games available through Steam in 2021. It's either that, or they just had a program compile all of the data for them, but the alternative sounds more thrilling.

    Valve has broken down Steam's "Best of 2021" into several categories. They have listings for the...

    The Steam Winter Sale for 2021 is Live

    Dread it, run from it, savings arrive all the same.

    It's that time of year again. The time of the year where snow... Well, snow should be falling but global warming would rather give us unseasonably high temperatures. It's also the time of year where gifts are given and exchanged in a ritual ceremony known as Christmas. Yep, it's the holiday season again and that means it's time for the big Steam Winter Sale.

    Valve Confirms There Won't be Steam Deck Exclusive Games

    Well, duh.

    In the newly updated FAQ page for their upcoming Steam Deck, Valve says that they are not interested in developers making Steam Deck exclusive titles. This startling revelation should really come as no surprise to anybody who has been paying attention to what the Steam Deck is for any length of time. It is, after all, merely a handheld PC.

    Valve's remarks about this came about during a recently Steamworks Steam Deck event where developers and publishers asked...

    Steam Surpasses 27 Million Concurrent Users

    Steam sets an all-time new record high for concurrent users.

    Steam has surpassed the 27 million concurrent user record today. Earlier, the gaming service surpassed 27 million concurrent users online at the same time. Specifically, the new peak topped out at 27,182,165 users. This beats Steam's previous record of 26.9 million concurrent users that was set back in April 2021.

    There are probably a number of factors that went into today's big Steam milestone. First off, it's...

    Those damned global chip shortages strike again!

    Valve just passed along some unfortunate news today concerning the Steam Deck. Due to "global supply chain issues" the Steam Deck release has been pushed back by two months. The earliest Steam Deck will begin shipping has shifted from December 2021 to February 2022.

    If reading the words "global supply chain issues" wasn't enough, I'll be more clear here. There is a big chip shortage that has been going...

    Valve just out here confirming the dates before leakers can do it.

    I hope your wallets and your free time are ready for sales, because there are a bunch of them coming. Of course, there are always a ton of sales that fire up through digital storefronts around this time of year, and Steam is certainly no exception to that.

    Usually, we don't get any sort of an official Steam sale announcement until just prior to it happening. In fact, we usually get people leaking those...

    Top Game Releases on Steam for September 2021

    It's a whole New World.

    Valve just released their list of the top new games released on Steam for September 2021. In their brief blog entry announcing the new releases, they touch upon some of the hottest titles that players picked up this past month.

    These titles cover a wide range of genres, as usual, and that means there's a little something for everyone. For instance, one of the biggest releases in September 2021 was from Amazon Games and the release of their new MMORPG,...

    A new update came out this evening for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, or CS:GO as the kids say these days. This update is mostly about the addition of some new content related to the Stockholm 2021 CS:GO Major Championship that is set to take place starting October 26.

    RPG-themed Steam Digital Tabletop Sale is Now Underway

    Perfect for those that like tabletop games but also video games.

    Valve just launched their latest Steam Digital Tabletop Fest. The latest is focused on RPG games and runs from today, October 21st through to October 25 at 10AM (PT). This sale is perfect for those that like tabletop games but prefer that they come in video game format instead. It's an odd paradox, but it makes sense in a weird sort of way.

    The start of something amazing or a terrible fit?

    With news that Ubisoft is rolling out a beta for their blockchain powered NFT program, named Ubisoft Quartz, it seems only right to ask this question: Are you excited for this weird NFT-infused metaverse that developers and publishers are starting to push?

    Are you all about this idea of earning "limited" items in games that can possibly be sold for cryptocurrencies?

    Or are you against this idea, believing...
    Yes, I love this idea! Give me NFTs in my video games! I love blockchain technology and our metaverse future!

    No, I hate this idea! This is the start of something terrible and has no business being added to video games!
