This year’s Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival may not have been the joyous gathering of fans that it has been in years past, but the move from an in-person event to a digital livestream still delivered plenty of surprises and excitement.

Activision has confirmed that the earlier leaks and rumors (and hints on the studio’s side) regarding Call of Duty: Warzone getting the Die Hard and Rambo treatment are true. If you like action and have an affinity for cheesy 80s action, then Call of Duty’s battle royale component is the place you’ll want to be. A few weeks ago,

Game platform Roblox has spawned all kinds of hits, a super cute one called Adopt Me! among them. The social pet-raising and home-decorating simulation has grown popular enough, among the most top-played Roblox games, that its creators have announced they’ve opened their own studio. The Adopt Me team will continue working on new updates to
Many of us know how difficult it’s been to buy an Xbox Series X/S or PlayStation 5. A global computer chip shortage has put a bottleneck on console production and whatever stock becomes available is quickly scooped up by bot-using scalpers. In an effort to circumvent scalpers and get the Series X into the hands of
After 20 years as a console game, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance is getting a PC port. (Not to be confused with D&D: Dark Alliance, the new spiritual successor coming this summer.) Baldur’s Alliance is the 2001 co-op hack and slasher set in yon Forgotten Realms. The re-release has just landed on consoles but Black Isle
I’ll be honest, friends: I’m thick with cold and I’d like this day to end. Maybe you can help me make that happen. Once I’m done here, I’m going to crawl under a blanket and play something comforting that will distract me until bedtime. So I’m here to ask: what’s your comfort gaming for when

“What games should I get for my PlayStation 5?” This is the question we’ve been asked the most since Sony’s new generation of gaming arrived last November.

Resident Evil Village is finally here, continuing the story of Ethan Winters from Resident Evil 7 as he finds himself trapped in a bleak, wintry landscape full of tall vampire ladies, snarling wolf boys and more horrible nasties than you can shake an Umbrella-shaped stick at. It’s also one of the best-looking PC games of
The Epic Games vs. Apple lawsuit is impacting the gaming industry dramatically as the topic of what constitutes as a monopoly comes center stage. Earlier this morning, we shared how Sony is being sued over PlayStation Store exclusivity, and now Valve is being sued for the same regarding Steam. The Epic Games vs. Apple lawsuit’s
If, like me, you were one of the many excited players eager to jump into Apex Legends last night to try out all the lovely new things added in the battle royale’s ninth season, you likely had a rough time logging in. A menu screen telling me there were no servers, the queue for Arenas
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser is a two-night vacation getaway that will debut at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida in 2022. As amazing as the Galaxy’s Edge theme park is, this vacation sounds like it will be the closest we come to living in a galaxy far, far away. When you arrive at the resort,
Resident Evil Village launches this Friday, but you can explore a bit of the game right now in a limited-time demo that’s available until May 9th. You’re only supposed to be able to play the demo for a total of 60 minutes, but of course PC players have found a way around that already. Now
Previously, Konami confirmed that it has “a number of key projects” in the works to share with fans, but the company has opted to join Nintendo, EA, Sony, and more in the decision to skip out on E3 2021.

I played a lot of Valorant in the two weeks after its release and enjoyed myself immensely. Then I got yelled at by a teammate and never played the game again. Now Riot say they’re going to start recording in-game voice comms so they can analyse it and “take action against players who use voice
New Dragon Age 4 concept art has arrived just in time for the weekend, and it brings back the Grey Wardens front and center. The order has gone through the Void and back, especially during the events of Dragon Age Inquisition, and it looks like we’ll be seeing them once more – perhaps to face
Everyone knows that kicking grunts intro traps in Dark Messiah of Might & Magic is one of the greatest pleasures in videogames. Radio Viscera looks like a game entirely about that feeling. Played from a top-down perspective, you wield an air cannon that can blast holes in walls and punt peeps into meat grinders.
The DC FanDome will return for a 2nd edition this October. The celebration all things DC Comics provides looks at upcoming comics, movies, TV shows, and, potentially, video games. What can fans expect to see this year? This year’s FanDome takes place on October 16. DC announced the event with a teaser video on its Twitter

Demon Slayer’s overwhelming popularity has skyrocketed it into the shonen big leagues where anime like Dragon Ball, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, and Naruto have dwelled for ages. Vivid art that employs traditional 2D as well as stunning 3D animations, sweeping/emotional battle themes, and tight story-pacing paired with an ensemble of diverse personalities (I mean,
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time… Deck-building games are all the rage at the moment, but Signs Of The Sojourner is a very different kettle of cardboard fish. Instead of using wit and cunning to play a victorious hand, Echodog Games’ wistful
If you, like me, have spent the last year of lockdown watching YouTube videos about hiking, then you might have begun to wonder how you would fare on a solo trek across 100 miles of rugged wilderness.

Disney+’s Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been getting a lot of praise, which makes the confirmation that the showrunner is helming Captain America 4 for the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe exciting. Malcolm Spellman, the Disney+ show’s creator, is set to co-write the script for Captain America 4 alongside fellow Falcon writer Dalan Musson.
Okami celebrated its 15th anniversary this week, and it got me thinking back to a series of articles I wrote about ten years ago (lawd) about the game’s underlying myths and folktales, back when I was all young and pretentious and used phrases like “literary allusion” in posts with a straight face. I know better
Yesterday, Sony accidentally leaked a PlayStation Plus Video Pass feature on the official Poland PlayStation website.

People of the games jury, please turn your attention to The Great Ace Attorney games. Previously, these two historical lawyer ’em ups hadn’t launched on PC or in English, both of which they’ll be doing in The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. This combo release has been foretold by leaks already, but there are no remaining
Discord has reportedly ended any and all talks of being acquired by outside parties, including Microsoft.
