The Sinking City Devs Claim Publisher Hacked Their Game and Uploaded it to Steam

A tale of developer vs. publisher.

This past Friday, The Sinking City was released on Steam seemingly without the consent of Frogwares, the game's developer. This was, at the time, the latest in the ongoing legal battle between Frogwares and publisher Nacon. Frogwares has been actively telling fans not to purchase the current Steam release of The Sinking City because Nacon put it up without permission.

They said that they would have more to say on the subject "soon."...

Review: The Medium (PC)

Trauma begets trauma.

Bloober Team was one of my favorite developers for a while there. They came out with Layers of Fear, which I largely adored. They also released Observer, which was a solid psychological horror set in a cyberpunk style universe. They had a couple of minor missteps with Layers of Fear 2 and Blair Witch, but I still held them in high regard. Now, they just released The Medium and man does it ever feel like a major step backwards for the company. If The Medium is...
 

BioWare is Cutting Back on Mass Effect Butt Shots

Cutting back the "ass" in Mass Effect.

There will be a lot less emphasis on butts in the Mass Effect Legendary Edition remasters. In speaking with Metro, character environment director Kevin Meek said that BioWare is taking steps to deemphasize the T&A in some scenes. If you were someone that played the original releases, you may recall some specific scenes that had camera angles focused on mostly ass. Expect that to change in Legendary Edition, at least to some degree....
 

Cancelled Xbox 360 Remake of GoldenEye is Now Playable on PC

13 years later a scrapped remake resurfaces.

In 2008, there existed some plans to remake GoldenEye for the Xbox 360 Live Arcade. These plans were ultimately scrapped after getting entangled in disputes over the rights to the game and the IP. Now, in the glorious year that is 2021, a build of the game is now playable all thanks to the wonders of emulation on the PC.

Two hours of the game were uploaded to YouTube just this past week. The uploader and others said that a near-final...

    Judge Rules Valve Must Hand Over Subpoenaed Data in Apple vs Epic Case

    Valve is pulled into this legal battle whether it wanted to be or not.

    California judge Thomas Hixon says that Valve must comply with a subpoena from Apple in their legal fight with Epic Games. Apple subpoenaed Valve because they feel certain Steam information will be important in their case that they are building against Epic. Valve claims that Apple's case is all about mobile and their data has no bearing on this case. They also say that Apple is using this only to obtain a bunch...

    Steam's Best Selling Games of 2020

    Checking out the year's top 100 games on Steam.

    2020 has sucked all kinds of ass. You know it, I know it, people who haven't even been born yet will eventually know it. If there's one thing that made the year a little more bearable it's the fact that we probably gamed a lot more than usual thanks to, you know, everything.

    Some of that is reflected in Valve's end of the year "Best Of" list for Steam. With gaming still being big in 2020, here are just a few of...
