Earlier this week, Twitch streamer Dylan “Rudeism” Beck blew our minds by beating Dark Souls III using a single-button setup to hammer out Morse code. It’s an impressive feat to be sure and one that also touches on something Rudeism is quite passionate about: accessibility in games.
Nothing’s free in this world. So why would anything, let alone public transit, be free in an idyllic video game world designed for escapism? When Animal Crossing: New Horizons soon gets the option to ride a ferry, those rides won’t be free.
Destiny 2’s Forsaken expansion, a high-water mark for Bungie’s loot shooter, is going away next year with the launch of The Witch Queen, the studio announced today. The move has been positioned as a way to keep the game optimized and make room for new content, but it will also be a heavy pill to swallow for players who purchased the content when it first came out.
Naval warship, The USS KIDD, apparently woke up one day earlier this month and said fuck global hegomony, let’s play some video games. Or at least, the internet troll who hacked the ship’s Facebook page and proceeded to play Age of Empires like a chump, did.
Amazon’s New World has launched, and as with many a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, it launched with some pretty annoying bugs. Bugs like being told you have to wait a week for your character to respawn after dying or, on the other end of the mortality spectrum, your character suddenly becoming impervious to most forms of damage. You know, fun stuff.
In early builds of the Xbox’s ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth, the eponymous extra-terrestrials beat up a hooded member of the Ku Klux Klan as the final boss fight of the game. Previously we only had the developer’s word from an obscure interview, but now we can finally see it for ourselves thanks to the surfacing of some new pre-release prototypes.
Female Soviet chess legend Nona Gaprindashvili is suing Netflix for $5 million after a scene in the hit show Queen’s Gambit falsely claimed she had never played against men. In fact, she claims to have played and beaten dozens of men. In the suit, Gaprindashvili called the incorrect dialogue “grossly sexist”.
We’ll finally get a better picture of what lies ahead for the PS5 during a September 9 showcase, Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog today.
Well, the announcement of a new Dead Space wasn’t just a shared visceral hallucination among those of us who’ve long wished for such a revival. Electronic Arts showed off some extremely early footage of the upcoming action-horror game during a live stream on EA Motive’s Twitch channel today.
The idea was simple. In Final Fantasy XIV, Astrologians use cards. Yu-Gi-Oh! characters use cards. Why not combine the two?
Officially announced on June 9 and slated for release on October 22, Battlefield 2042 left a very narrow window for the international cheat machine to spring into action, but spring they have with at least one website already advertising aimbots and ESP-style player location sensing to ruin Dice’s upcoming 128-player shootfest.
Kawano is one of Japan’s top Street Fighter V players. He recently took first place in Evo 2021 Online East Asia and won the Topanga Championship 3. But his actions online earlier this summer have recently come under greater scrutiny.
Earlier today, a handful of Cyberpunk 2077 devs jumped on CD Projekt Red’s official Twitch channel to provide an overview of the game’s upcoming 1.3 patch and the new in-game content the studio plans to make freely available to everyone who downloads it. Like most things having to do with the notoriously broken game, however, the underwhelming showcase seemed to leave viewers wanting more.
One of my favorite ways to relax in the evenings is to watch this Twitch channel that streams subtitled episodes of the Japanese TV series Game Center CX. If you’re not familiar with the show, most episodes focus on comedian Shinya Arino’s desperate struggles to beat old console games. (It was recently announced that now even the PlayStation 2 is old enough to fit the show’s retro format. Excuse me while I crumble into dust.) However, when I tuned in the other night, I caught part of a special episode from 2004 in which Arino spends a great deal of…
The Ascent is a pretty dang good twin-stick shooter, but some Korean-speaking players have taken issue with the cyberpunk game’s liberal (and sometimes downright incorrect) use of the language.
