Cyberpunk 2077 dev pulls plug on mod that allowed players to *checks notes* bang Keanu Reeves

Luke Hardwick | 2 months, 2 weeks ago

With CD Projekt Red opening the flood gates on mod creation for Cyberpunk 2077, it was, if I'm being entirely honest with myself, only a matter of time before somebody would find a way to provide dedicated players the game's real endgame - the ability to bang Keanu Reeves.

Xbox Series X Fridge

Well I'll be, Snoop Dogg got an actual Xbox Series X fridge

As if we needed another reminder of what late capitalism looks like, Microsoft has apparently hooked Snoop Dogg up with a full-sized Xbox Series X refrigerator.

Mortal Shell protagonist playing the Lute

My character in Mortal Shell isn't much of a fighter, but he is one heck of a Lute player

Luke Hardwick | 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Throughout my life, I've had to come to terms with certain things that, for one reason or another I will never be able to do. As a modestly-sized man, it's pretty safe to say that I could never play in the NBA. As someone whose brain just doesn't process math very well, chances are that I'm not going to become a rocket scientist anytime soon. Point being, I find that successfully managing one's life requires an understanding of one's weaknesses as well as strengths, then doing one's best to apply themselves in ways that are more conducive to the latter.

Watch Dogs: Legion Pig Squad

Watch Dogs: Legion producer boasts 30fps with 4k and Ray-tracing on next-gen consoles. Weird flex but okay

Luke Hardwick | 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Watch Dogs: Legions producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan recently hosted a Reddit AMA where, as customary, users got the opportunity ask all manner of questions relating to the upcoming title. Being that Watch dogs is releasing on both current and next-gen consoles, it's no surprise that there would be an interest in what sort of perks are in store for those that might be playing on either Xbox Series X or PS5.

Outbreak: New Dawn More Zombies

Outbreak: New Dawn ceases development following sale to new publisher

Luke Hardwick | 5 months, 4 weeks ago

Development of Outbreak: New Dawn, the ill-conceived "spiritual successor" to the heavily controversial The War Z, is being offloaded to a new publisher after just six months of development. The original studio behind it, Free Reign Entertainment, announced via social media that it had reached an agreement with Thailand-based Electronics Extreme for them to acquire the game.

Among Us is getting some Great Fan Art

Among Us may bring out the worst in your friends, but it brings out the best(?) in its fan art community

Luke Hardwick | 6 months ago

If you didn't know, Among Us has absolutely exploded in popularity over the past month or so. Prior to the boom, Among Us saw an active player base in the double digits, where as now there are roughly 200,000 concurrent players on a Wednesday night. Although Among Us has been around since 2018, its sudden popularity in the latter half of 2020 can be attributed to Twitch, or rather, being picked up by some prominent streamers. Since the game's premise and gameplay loop makes for excellent audience fodder, it's no wonder why it has become an latent overnight phenomenon.

Fall Guys Gameplay

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout Review

Luke Hardwick | 8 months, 1 week ago

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout defies what it means to be a battle royale by offering a new take on the genre that is both addicting and wholly unique. The unpredictable chaos that Fall Guys provides manages to give gamers of all skill levels an opportunity to compete on an even playing field - which is great - but it's unclear whether the absence of meaningful, skill-based gameplay will keep players engaged for the longterm.

Baldur's Gate 3 Underdark

Baldur's Gate 3 Early Access won't launch in August after all

Luke Hardwick | 8 months, 1 week ago

Remember when Larian Studios head Swen Vincke got everyone's hopes up by suggesting that Baldur's Gate 3 might enter Early Access in August? Well, that isn't happening anymore.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated Spongebob and Squidward

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated Review

Shellie McCurdy | 8 months, 2 weeks ago

A solid original story for fans of the show and plenty of hidden collectibles make Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated a firmly good time, even without the nostalgia for the original.

Someday You'll Return Camp

Someday You'll Return Review

Luke Hardwick | 8 months, 2 weeks ago

Someday You'll Return is either a work of genius that I'm too dense to understand, or the Twin Peaks of video games that flaunts its incoherence in plain sight. Those who hope to come away with a sense of closure after completing its 12-18 hour story might be left feeling disappointed - if not entirely confused. However, much like David Lynch's seminal classic, the inability to make sense of the conclusion doesn't detract from the journey to get there.

Ghost Recon Breakpoint AI Teammates

Now that AI Teammates have been added, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is finally worth playing

Luke Hardwick | 8 months, 2 weeks ago

When Ghost Recon: Breakpoint released in July of last year, many fans - myself included - weren't exactly stoked by the new direction the series had taken. Mind you, its predecessor, Wildlands, was itself a drastic departure from the otherwise tactical-leaning franchise, but I found the shift to an open-world, co-op focused experience to be - for the most part - an improvement.
