Discord Distances Itself from Gaming

Discord is now your place to talk.

Discord was built upon the idea of bringing gamers of all types together. It's certainly a big factor that prompted my friends and I to make the move to Discord from TeamSpeak and Ventrilo however long ago it's been now. We were a group of friends that played a lot of games together. We didn't like the quality of the service we were paying monthly for from the alternatives and decided to give Discord a try. We never looked back.

Review: Disintegration

A terribly underwhelming take on the sci-fi FPS genre.

Disintegration, the debut title from V1 Interactive, places players in the shoes of Romer Shoal. Shoal was a former celebrity robot turned outlaw that leads a group of other current outlaws to take down the evil Rayonne. This is done through a lot of vehicle focused combat and some great character designs, but a terrible story with some surprisingly shallow gameplay. Though the game aims to become a real genre defining moment for...
 

Review: Maneater

A fun, albeit shallow, gameplay experience.

Maneater is one of those titles that is just the right amount of dumb fun. It pushes the dumb just far enough that you are not overly concerned with its obvious shortcomings. I suppose that any game that places you in the fins of a growing, angry as hell bull shark that can mutate and grow.

    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."
    Today Valve released an announcement clarifying the
