Call of Duty Shakeup - Call of Duty 2020 is Another Black Ops and Is Modern Warfare 4 Going Free-to-Play?

Reports include talk of arguments between Sledgehammer and Raven.

There are reported some massive changes happening behind the scenes of the Call of Duty franchise. According to a new report from Jason Schreier of Kotaku, Call of Duty 2020 is no longer being developed by Sledgehammer and Raven. It will instead be handled by Treyarch and it will be another entry in the Black Ops saga.

This is the first major change in the development cycle of the Call of Duty franchise since 2012. Since then, the Call of Duty games have cycled between three lead studios. Those studios...
 

Bungie Brings Back the Nerf Gun on Fan-Favorite Destiny 2 Weapons

Old Bungie is back.

Around the release of the Curse of Osiris update for Destiny 2, Bungie had vowed to take a drastically different approach to how they handle community favored weapons in the game. Old Bungie would have nerfed those weapons into the ground without a second thought.

But new Bungie? New Bungie said that they wanted to instead buff up other weapons to make them more attractive choices. This was a part of their "Go Fast Update" initiative. Specifically, here is what they said in all capital letters for some weird reason (via Game Rant).

The Epic Games Store just kicked off its own multi-week long sale today. This sale finds discounts of up to 75% off of some titles. It also includes discounts on pre-orders for games like John Wick Hex, Borderlands 3, or Control. Just to name a few.

Review: A Plague Tale: Innocence (PC)

Incredible from start to finish.

Every once in a while there comes a new game release that defies all expectations. A Plague Tale: Innocence is one such game. Thanks to a delicate balance of satisfying gameplay and an engaging story, A Plague Tale will sink its hooks into you right from its opening chapters. Though there are a couple of small missteps along the way, the journey you share with siblings Amicia and Hugo is one you really don't want to miss.

There are many more review "buzz words" I could use to describe A Plague Tale, but I will spare you from...
 

New Final Fantasy VII Remake Teaser

Just watch it.

A new teaser trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake was finally shown off today. It's the first one shown off in, I think, over a year. It's not much but maybe it'll be enough until we hear and see more this June. ...

  • Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

    Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

    An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

    Library
    First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...

  • Half-Life 3 Again Teased by Potentially Fake Email from Valve's Gabe Newell

    Half-Life 3 Again Teased by Potentially Fake Email from Valve's Gabe Newell


    It is *checks non-existent watch* now three months into 2019, which means it's about that time again for another Half-Life 3 rumor. This one comes directly from Valve's Gabe Newell himself!

    Well, maybe.

    Honestly, it's probably fake but I know what pulls people in to the site and this is certainly going to do it for a little bit.

    All of this begins with the latest video from "Valve News Network (VNN)," a YouTube channel that never, ever, ever (heavily implied sarcasm here) exaggerates or simply pulls things out of their ass. Get them clicks!...

  • Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores

    Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores


    Valve has had a major problem these past few years with user submitted reviews. One of the biggest issues with user reviews, be they on Steam or anywhere, is when a push is made by a community to review bomb a game or other form of media. These usually result in a ton of negative reviews in a short span of time for a product because of some perceived slight by a studio concerning a game.

    Steam displays user scores in a couple of ways. They show the average of the most recent scores given to a title and the average of all of the reviews from the start. So while the short-term...

  • Security Researchers Find '39 Percent' of Counter-Strike 1.6 Servers Used to Spread Malware


    This week, security researchers from Russia's Dr.Web (PDF), filed a report saying that roughly 39% of Counter-Strike 1.6 servers were used to spread malware to users. The report, filed on Monday, found that these malicious servers exploited a remote code execution (RCE) flaw in the game client to spread a new malware variant called Belonard.

    These servers were nothing more than proxy servers set up to display low pings, enticing players to try to connect to them. When players connected to those servers, they were redirected to the malicious servers that had one of four different...

    An update was released tonight for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Today's update includes a number of gameplay altering changes.

    Counter-Strike Update Reduces CPU Usage by up to 40%



    Valve just released a new update for Counter-Strike: Global OFfensive today that should provide a nice boost to performance for some players. Included in today's update is an optional command line switch that can reduce CPU usage by up to 40%.

    Don't forget that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a free-to-play game available on Steam. You can bump yourself up to "CS:GO Prime" status for about $15.

  • Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam

    Valve Decides 'Rape Day' Maybe Isn't a Good Game for Steam


    It took some time, but Valve has finally decided that a visual novel "game" about raping women during a zombie apocalypse maybe isn't a good fit for Steam.

    The game is (was?) called Rape Day and the premise is pretty much what I said in the line above. The game glorified verbally harassing women, killing them, and raping them throughout the story. The game was under review from Valve and, after multiple articles went up about the game, did Valve see fit to pull its existence from Steam.

    To be clear, Rape Day was never up for sale on Steam. It had a Steam...

  • Steam Lunar Sale 2019 is Live and Offering a Bonus $5 Discount on Purchases of $30 or More


    Valve just announced that their Steam Lunar New Year Sale has begun once more for 2019. This sale is in honor of the Year of the Pig and runs from now until February 11, 2019.

    As part of the normal discounts on games, consumers will also get a bonus $5 (or equivalent currency) discount on "qualifying purchases over $30 (limited to one cart purchase per account)." This bonus $5 discount apparently only applies to the first purchase of $30 or more that you make during the sale period.

    In addition, you can get a few different rewards during this sale. Buying...

  • Steam's Updated DLC Browsing Experience is Kind of Bad

    Steam's Updated DLC Browsing Experience is Kind of Bad


    Before this evening, if you wanted to get some DLC for a game that you owned on Steam, it was either shown through a simple dropdown menu on the game's page or as a condensed list on its own page. Today, Valve did away with both of those options and replaced them with a more spread out solution.

    These changes are talked about in a new but brief update on the Steam Blog.


    Now, all of the DLC is listed on a separate page when you click to view more. If a game has a lot of DLC, then it's spread across multiple pages. The page consists of a top banner area,...

  • Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019

    Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019


    In case you forgot, or were simply unaware, Valve will drop Steam support for Windows XP machines beginning January 1, 2019. This more than likely doesn't really impact you unless you are one of the 0.11% that are still using Windows XP as of the November 2018 hardware survey. Of course, Microsoft ended support for XP back in 2014, meaning it has already seen four years without security patches.

    Here is what Valve announced earlier this year about their Windows XP support ending.



    New year, new you, right? Maybe that should also apply to your operating...
