Metro Exodus is Back on Steam and at 40% Off

525,600 minutes...

It was Metro Exodus that really kicked off the season of the Epic Games Store exclusive. This was a period in which a fair number of games that were slated to be released on Steam,...
 

Geoff Keighley to Skip E3 for First Time as Troubles Mount for Dying Trade Show

This comes the same day the exhibitor list was leaked.

His decision to not attend this year's event will mark the first time in 25 years that the industry veteran will not be in attendance. It also means that he will not host the annual E3 Coliseum show. This was a regular event where Keighley would host a series of game developers in a rather informal Q&A, allowing them to talk freely...

Anthem is Finally Getting a Massive Overhaul

BioWare officially announces their plans to make major changes.

Anthem as it currently exists is hanging on by the most tenuous of threads. Despite apparently being one of 2019's top selling titles, at least according to data shared by The NPD Group, the player base is next to non-existent. It would take a significant amount of work to get players interested in the game once again, which is apparently what BioWare has been working on behind the scenes for a little while now.

    HonorTheCall Exposes FaZe Clan's Ownership of Skin Betting Site CSGOWild

    In case there was still any doubt that members of the FaZe clan owned and operated the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skin betting website, CSGOWild, this should help make things clear. HonorTheCall released another new video yesterday that shows the FaZe clan involvement in CSGOWild, which includes FaZe Rain and FaZe Banks.

    Twitch to Crack Down on CS:GO Skin Gambling Streams

    Twitch prides itself on abiding by third-party terms of service and user agreements. Given Valve's statements earlier this week about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gambling sites, it seems as though people streaming themselves gambling for skins may be an endangered species now. Twitch issued a reminder that broadcasters are not permitted to stream content "that breaks the terms of service or user agreements of third-parties."
