Microsoft clarifies stance on parity rules between Xbox One, Project Scorpio

Microsoft clarifies stance on parity rules between Xbox One, Project Scorpio

Eric Frederiksen

How developers make use of Project Scorpio’s power is up to them, Microsoft says. That sounds good, but how far does it go? Microsoft’s Xbox engineering lead Mike Ybarra expanded on this on Twitter on Friday. Ybarra said that “developers are free to choose how they use the power of Project Scorpio for games,” adding that Microsoft has “no requirements limiting frame or fidelity.” A...

Blizzard not looking to compete with Steam despite Destiny 2 exclusivity

Blizzard not looking to compete with Steam despite Destiny 2 exclusivity

Ron Duwell

Activision’s reveal of the Destiny 2 PC build went off without a hitch this past weekend, and perhaps the biggest news of all was that the game would be coming exclusively to Blizzard’s longtime online host Battle.net. The legendary service will be the only place that PC gamers can buy and play the game, not allowing it to come to other outlets such as Steam or Amazon. Bungie’s rare...

Overwatch celebrates anniversary with event, free weekend, Game of the Year Edition

Has it really almost been a full year since Overwatch launched? “Yes,” responds Father Time, “it has. You’re dying.” While we all enjoy this slow death, let’s pace it out with some video games! Overwatch is turning a year old, and Blizzard is celebrating with a litany of content. That includes a free weekend of play, sale of a Game of the Year edition (which looks a lot like the...

Reclaiming the 90s FPS part 2: DUSK and STRAFE go after gory nostalgia

Eric Frederiksen

We talked the other day about how Quake Champions is trying to reclaim the legacy of the first person shooter it started along with Doom and Wolfenstein back in the 90s. While id Software is doing everything it can to stay relevant, other, smaller developers are celebrating that era of games, each in their own way. Two upcoming shooters look to reclaim everything about those shooters,...

Nintendo Switch owners luck out by never having to play broken Yooka-Laylee

Nintendo Switch owners luck out by never having to play broken Yooka-Laylee

Ron Duwell

Yooka-Laylee didn’t live up to expectations on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Critics mauled it for a choppy camera angle, insufferable character voices, and design choices that haven’t evolved since the era it was aimed at. Luckily, two of those can, and will, be fixed with a patch, and one doesn’t have to be. Which one is that? Well, the idea that the game hasn’t kept up with...

Overwatch patch slightly nerfs Soldier, tones down Reinhardt's ultimate

Overwatch patch slightly nerfs Soldier, tones down Reinhardt's ultimate

Joey Davidson

“Man, Reinhardt’s ultimate is so broken!” That’s something I’ve heard in chorus since essentially the launch of Overwatch. The Earthshatter smashes the ground and puts everyone in its path down for a while so Rein and his team can dish out some significant damage. A good Earthshatter can result in a team wipe, so it really stinks when it catches you while you think you’re safe. Well,...
