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.

Cyberpunk 2077 New Trailer Revealed - 'The Gig'

A new trailer showcasing new footage, characters, and story.

Today, CD Projekt Red lifted the lid on a whole lot of new media and impressions for Cyberpunk 2077. A number of outlets have shared their first-hand experiences with a vertical slice of the game based on being able to play it for the past week or two now. Lucky SOBs, I'll tell you what. This all came together today in the release of those impressions to the web alongside a brand new official trailer from CD Projekt Red themselves....
 

Mixer is Shutting Down

Microsoft is pulling the plug on their streaming platform.

On July 22, Microsoft will officially close down their streaming service, Mixer, for good. The plan is to instead move all of its existing partners over to Facebook Gaming. This rather sudden announcement means that Mixer partners and streamers will be moving to Facebook Gaming beginning today.

According to The Verge, Microsoft "has struggled to reach the scale needed to Mixer to compete with Twitch, YouTube,...
 

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. These mutations provide your shark with gain special abilities is not a game that would ever take itself too seriously.

Maneater is a game...

  • Twitch to Crack Down on CS:GO Skin Gambling Streams

    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

    CSGOLotto, TmarTn, and ProSyndicate Sued Over Illegal Gambling

    Earlier this week, CSGOLotto, Trevor "TmarTn" Martin, and Thomas "ProSyndicate" Cassell were added to one of the two legal complaints recently filed against Valve over allegations of facilitating illegal gambling with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skins.
    In the suit, which was filed by an anonymous parent on behalf of their child, Valve is accused of deliberately allowing the creation of a market where players and third-parties trade weapon skins like casino chips. The lawsuits

    PsiSyndicate Shares Emails Showing How Sleazy CS:GO Gambling Sites Are

    Moments ago, PC Gamer shared some emails provided by Lewis "PsiSyndicate" Stewart and his involvement with Steamloto. Now, PsiSyndicate and Steamloto should not be confused with Tom "ProSyndicate" Cassell and CSGOLotto. They are two separate people with two separate (allegedly) betting sites, but both are involved in rigged betting of CS:GO skins. If nothing else, the major difference between the two individuals is that PsiSyndicate actually came clean and admitted that some of his previous...

    Team EnVyUs Issues Statement About TmarTn and Ties to CSGOLotto

    For those unaware of the illegal dealings of one Trevor Martin (aka: TmarTn), it would be best to begin with this earlier news post. With that said, it must be noted that TmarTn also has a partial ownership in Team EnVyUs, a group of professional players with ties to Counter-Strike, League of Legends, Overwatch, and Call of Duty (to name a few).

    Today, Team EnVyUs issued a statement about their current stance on TmarTn's partial ownership in the team and his roles with CSGOLotto. ...

    h3h3Productions' latest video takes a look at the shady and sometimes illegal world of gambling, trading, and skin unlocking in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This comes hot on the heels of a lawsuit filed against Valve for "illegal gambling" in CS:GO. The lawsuit claims that Valve "knowingly allowed, supported, and/or sponsored illegal gambling by allowing millions of Americans to link their individual Steam accounts to third-party websites such as CSGO Lounge ("Lounge"), CSGO Diamon...
