    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Now Has More Concurrent Players than All But Two Games on Steam

    It's not really a 'survival-ish' game. Basically think of it as a deathmatch/team deathmatch game, only with a massive map, a single life and an inventory system. The appeal I guess, is the adrenaline rush of sudden death mixed with a vast map which creates choices and options. The genre...

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Now Has More Concurrent Players than All But Two Games on Steam

    Going to be interesting to see how much a hit the numbers take once all the end of year releases drop. I feel like a big factor to this games success was the timing. This year has been bereft of decent new MP games, especially in the AAA space. Publishers really need to dump the 4th quarter...

    Ubisoft Says There's No Splinter Cell Game in Development Right Now, But That Could Change Soon

    I can already see the new Splinter cell game. It will take place in a big open world city/town. You climb cellular towers to get the map layout and you clear out buildings full of bad guys which then get taken over by the CIA or whatever organization you're working for. Oh and the primary...

    The First Total War: Warhammer II In-Engine Trailer Shows Off the Lizardmen

    The only major misstep they made was the Chaos pre-order bonus controversy which they ended up making an 'early adopter bonus' instead which gave plenty of time for people to look at reviews and make a decision after release = problem solved. All the DLC post-release has been fairly priced...

    Leaked Email Reveals Twitch to Roll Out $10 and $25 Subscription Tiers in Upcoming Beta

    This isn't being done to 'improve the streamers experience'. It has the same motive behind it as the 'cheers' system. Twitch is very aware of how much money their large streamers are making off the back of donations and patreon subs and want a piece of that pie for themselves. I'd actually...

    Nvidia Shows Off Mass Effect: Andromeda 4K Screens, PC Graphics Options

    Pretty much this. Texture quality seems to be a very mixed bag to say the least.

    Australian Steam Games Are About to Get a Flat 10% Price Increase

    Eh, Steam isn't a big deal. Never buy from there for the most part anyway since they've always been a colossal ripoff. Ditto for Greenman and GoG and all the other major sellers. Going to suck if and when all the key sites like cjs and cdkeys and ozgameshop start charging it as well though...

    Bethesda has Three New Games in the Works, Two of Which are Apparently Huge

    I have a sneaking suspicion that they might be working on something VR related or at least VR compatible/focused.

    Get 10 Hours of Mass Effect: Andromeda Five Days Early with EA Access

    Assuming you want to definitely per-order it, it actually pays for itself as the 10% off the game price just about covers the money spent on a single months subscription. Or at least that's how it worked for BF1. Also worth noting, the 10% off you get stacks with any additional sales they...

    Prepare Your PC for Battle: For Honor PC System Requirements Revealed

    Ha...HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I had already written this game off on account of it being Ubisoft but wow, what the hell are they thinking. Seriously sick of this P2P Quick match garbage.

    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Launching a Five Day Free Trial, Unless You're on PC

    No surprise considering CoD hasn't been remotely relevant on PC since Modern Warfare. I'm honestly shocked they're even bothering to publish it for PC anymore these days.

    Niantic Confirms New Pokemon are Coming to Pokemon Go

    I'd totally forgotten this was a thing that released until yesterday. Kind of sad walking past the big lure hangouts that are all empty again now. If they ever decided to make it into a proper pokemon experience with the traditional turn based battle system, trading, 1v1 battles, breeding...

    Kripp Could Have Crashed Hearthstone Servers by DEing His Dupes

    That's kind of amazing lol Although I always figured he'd never be able to actually craft them all considering there's constantly new cards being added. I guess the rate at which he's acquiring duplicates is outstripping the rate of new cards being created?

    Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide Getting Karak Azgaraz DLC Alongside Biggest Patch Yet

    I wouldn't hold my breath on Deathwing. Have you seen the early beta footage? Game is a dumpster fire. I'm a bit disappointed with how the DLC has turned out for vermintide. I get that they're only a small studio, but I feel they just took far too long getting the initial patches and new...
