If you’ve played Call of Duty: Warzone recently, you might’ve seen flying objects in the sky that appear to be aircrafts like helicopters or planes. Well, you’re wrong. They’re actually regular old vehicles such as motorbikes and SUVs that cheaters have hacked to take to the skies…again. Yes, again, as this isn’t a new occurrence for Raven Software’s very popular battle royale.
Doomed: Demons of the Nether is a new, free mod out today for Minecraft that turns the entire blocky survival game into a surprisingly accurate-looking recreation of the 2016 Doom reboot, complete with shotguns and even a BFG.
It seems Twitch’s controversial “pay-to-win” Boost feature is a bust. There was no positive impact for streamers who took part in a test of the Boost feature, according to a data analyst who crunched the numbers.
The launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S provided companies with an opportunity to charge more for their console games and many jumped at the chance. With Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and Forspoken, that new $70 price tag is making a controversial appearance on PC, a platform that’s traditionally seen at cheaper price points. Some people are worried it’s the beginning of an across-the-board price hike, even if it’s one that’s been long overdue.
Xbox Game Pass is a good name for a subscription games service. Xbox Game Pass for PC is not, so Microsoft got together with rappers Lil Dicky and GaTa last night during The Game Awards to announce the PC version’s new name, the much more sensible PC Game Pass. The ad spot also revealed four new games coming to the service, including Sniper Elite 5 and Pigeon Simulator. Teased by the official Twitter account earlier this week, the Game Pass PC— sorry, PC Game Pass lineup is growing by four new titles: Sniper Elite 5, Pigeon Simulator, Trek to Yomi,…
It took mega streamer Ludwig Ahgren less than a week after abandoning Twitch for YouTube to get temporarily banned from Google’s video platform. His mistake? Briefly streaming the smash hit children’s song Baby Shark.
Twitch is about to roll out a new tool called Suspicious User Detection, which aims to do exactly what it says on the box: try and detect users who are being suspicious. More specifically, those trying to evade existing bans.
Twitch streamer Ludwig Ahgren, who in April set a world record for the highest number of subscribers—at over 270,000—has left the platform and will now be streaming exclusively at YouTube Gaming.
Yesterday, the Twitter account for the livestreaming software Lightstream accused rival streaming software maker Streamlabs of stealing marketing copy from its website. After Lightstream tweeted about how Streamlabs’ website text was modeled on its own, other companies began to corroborate with their own negative experiences with Streamlabs. Among those were the makers of OBS, a widely used streaming application which accused Streamlabs of using the name “OBS” in a release of its own, Streamlabs OBS, without permission. Earlier today, Streamlabs announced that it would be removing the “OBS” from “Streamlabs OBS” (SLOBS).
It’s hard to believe, I know, but there are other games coming to Xbox that don’t start with Halo and end with Infinite. Over the next two weeks, Microsoft will add 10 more games to Xbox Game Pass. Here’s what’s struck me: I’ve been watching these rollouts like a hawk for several years. For the first time I can recall, every forthcoming addition will be available via Xbox Cloud Gaming: November 16November 17November 18November 23November 30The platform’s push into cloud gaming has been clear for some time, with Xbox head Phil Spencer working overtime recently to create buzz.

Can you believe it? The PlayStation 3 launched fifteen years ago today. It was an expensive console and a messy launch, with hype overload and some truly bad press conferences. But Sony didn’t give up on the PS3, and neither did gamers. The PS3 was home to a slew of great exclusives, such as The Last of Us, Demon’s Souls, Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Yakuza 4. It’s easy to look back at the PS3 as something that was always a terrific game console, but it didn’t start that way. I remember sitting in the audience at…
Speedrun, a website where leaderboards crown the fastest players for any given game, recently added a commenting feature which hasn’t been going well for anyone. Since its implementation, users have been spammed with vulgar comments and inappropriate images. Worse, those plagued by this problem can’t moderate the garbage. As a result, some speedrunners and moderators on the site went on a strike.
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.
Twitch has just issued an update after yesterday’s major attack on the service, which resulted in the theft and then public posting of, among other things, the platform’s source code. According to their ongoing investigation, a “a malicious third party” is responsible.
According to a report by VGC, an anonymous hacker has posted a 125GB torrent link containing, well, all of Twitch, including its source code and commit history going back to the start. The leak also contains streamers’ incomes since 2019, and information that suggests the Amazon-owned streaming platform’s Steam rival Vapor may really exist.
