Watch Almost an Hour of Death Stranding Gameplay

A lot of gameplay footage that may finally provide a lot of answers.

The marketing for the Kojima Productions game, Death Stranding, has left consumers with more questions than answers. It's a game from the mind of Hideo Kojima, so of course the marketing was going to be odd. The problem was, there are a lot of people that just have no idea about what the game was even about even after the numerous trailers.

Maybe sitting down and watching 50 minutes of gameplay will help clear up that confusion. If that doesn't work, then maybe a breakdown of the gameplay footage from...
 

Final Fantasy VII Remake Tokyo Game Show 2019 Trailer

The trailer is at the bottom after these boring words.

Square Enix showed off an all new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake this week at the Tokyo Game Show. The new trailer offers a fresh look at gameplay, the slums of Midgar, and a peak at the mini-games and summons. Midgar is home to the Shinra Electric Power Company. This kind of totally evil company is in conflict with Avalanche, a resistance group fighting to keep their planet alive. You will also get your first look at some of the Shinra operatives known as The Turks.

Square Enix also included their new artwork...
 

Cube World is Coming to Steam

Let me take you back to the year 2013...

In 2013, a little game called Cube World came out in an "alpha" release. It was a cute, stylized adventure-RPG that offered a ton of freedom, battles, exploration, and more. A big appeal of the alpha was being able to have all of these adventures with your friends in one world. To its credit, the limited content of the alpha was quite enjoyable but the promise of bigger and better was always just around the corner. The problem came when it was just never updated! Eventually the developer went dark.

We would sometimes...

  • Steam Direct Fee Details and Changes to Steam Curators

    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

    Chet Faliszek Leaves Valve

    The second half of Old Man Murray and someone that was undoubtedly a champion of our virtual future, Chet Faliszek, has left Valve. Faliszek parts ways from a legacy that stretches back 12 years with the former game developer.

    Faliszek played a major role in Valve's Vive VR platform, pushing developers to jump into the virtual whether it was on Vive or competing platforms. Some of his writing credits while at Valve include the two Half-Life 2 Episodes, both Portal games, and both Left4Dead titles.

  • Latest Update for Dota 2 Fixes Matchmaking for Everyone

    Latest Update for Dota 2 Fixes Matchmaking for Everyone

    The latest update for Dota 2 targets the game's matchmaking system, something that has been a point of much angst among the community. Seriously, just look at this positivity even over on Reddit.

    The main highlights include the return of the solo queue, you must register a number to play ranked, there are now bans from ranked games, bot accounts were hit with a permanent ban wave, and more. This also includes
    LINKED PHONE NUMBER The first major change is that players must register a unique phone number to their account in order to queue for Ranked matches. Players using multiple accounts create a negative matchmaking experience at all skill brackets, so our goal is to add just enough friction to this process that the number of players doing this will be noti
