Watch the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Announcement Trailer


At the end of February, the world was alerted to the fact that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) and EA would reveal a trailer for their new Star Wars title on this very day. It turns out, this scheduled event happened as planned.

Imagine that.

Earlier today the studios revealed the first details and trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the Star Wars Celebration that has been going on this weekend in Chicago. This is an original game set in the Star Wars universe and looks to take place after Order 66 was issued. This places the game set shortly...
 

New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...
 

Good News xXEdGeL0rD_420sw4gXx You Can Now Change Your PSN Name Starting Today


If you or xXEdGeL0rD_420sw4gXx would like to change your PlayStation Network name, you are now free to do so starting today. Sony has rolled out the name change feature for PSN to everyone, but there are a few stipulations to all of this.

First off, there will be some games that may not support the fact that you decided to change your PSN name. Sony makes it clear that any and all games that were published after April 1, 2018. They also note that they have not actually tested every single game, so even that might not be 100% true. They at least provided lists of tested ga...
 

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the major questions fans of...
 

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

  • PSA: Steam Lagging Today? Here's a Workaround Fix

    PSA: Steam Lagging Today? Here's a Workaround Fix

    A great number of people, including myself, have noticed that Steam is a wee bit laggy today. And by a "wee bit" I mean it's borderline unusable. Fortunately, some users have found a workaround fix for the issue.

    Comments on Reddit and the Steam Community provided a few fixes for this issue that may help you out.

    1. One potential fix is to clear the browser cache within Steam. You can do this by going to your Steam Settings > Web Browser > Delete Web Browser Cache. Please note that if you do this one, the issue will return the next time you start up Steam, at least until Valve addresses this issu

  • Steam Direct Now Available

    Steam Direct Now Available

    Valve rolled out Steam Direct today to developers. This spiritual successor to Steam Greenlight promises a few changes that will maybe make it not suck as much as Greenlight did. With any luck, it will perhaps cut back on the number of low to no effort games. Perhaps.

    Valve talks a bit about what happened to the near 3,400 titles that remained on Greenlight.
    The end of Greenlight Last week, we disabled new submissions and voting via Greenlight and have been reviewing the remaining submissions. As of today, we've greenlit many of the remaining 3,400 titles that were remaining in Greenlight. There are a number of titles that we could not Greenlight, due to insufficient voter data or conce

    Twitch Streamer Caught Cheating in CS:GO, Tries to Blame Friend

    MissQGemini was a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streamer on Twitch. I say was because Twitch has already taken action against them after the following events unfolded on a recent Twitch stream.

    A video posted yesterday shows the CS:GO player loading up a hotkey activated cheat menu, proceeding to load a custom profile, cheat in CS:GO, and then attempt to blame their friend. Twitch has a zero tolerance policy for streaming cheating in online multiplayer games. This can be found at the bottom of their Community Guidelines.

    Steam Direct Fee Details and Changes to Steam Curators

    With the imminent death of Steam Greenlight, Valve finally started to get some details out about their Steam Direct program that will replace it. First up, the fee for adding games to Steam Direct will be $100, which honestly sounds a bit low given that this is the same price as what Greenlight was.

    But hey, let's see what Valve's reasoning is for making it $100.
    We thought it would be great if the game community at large had a conversation about it, including both players and developers, which was why we chose not to highlight a specific amount in that original post. Since then, we've seen a bunch of great conversations discussing the various pros and cons of whether there should be an amount, what that amount should be, ways that recouping could work, which devel
