Another Popular Twitch Streamer Is Trying To Leave FaZe Clan Another Popular Twitch Streamer Is Trying To Leave FaZe Clan

Last month, popular Fortnite streamer Turner “Tfue” Tenney sued FaZe Clan, the esports organization whose banner he plays under, over a supposedly restrictive contract. The lawsuit sent shockwaves in all directions, resulting in, among other things, FaZe player H1ghSky1 getting banned from Twitch after it came to…

Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night, As Told By Steam Reviews Bloodstained: Ritual Of The Night, As Told By Steam Reviews

What is a Kickstarter-funded spiritual successor to Castlevania? Either a miserable or non-miserable pile of secrets (and gameplay mechanics), depending on which Steam reviewer you talk to.

Valve's New Auto Chess Game Is Already Way More Popular Than Artifact Ever Was Valve's New Auto Chess Game Is Already Way More Popular Than Artifact Ever Was

The failure of Dota-themed trading card game Artifact might have left Valve with egg on its face, but the company has now scraped off that egg and made an omelette with Dota Underlords. Valve’s take on the obscenely popular Auto Chess genre hit a peak of nearly 180,000 concurrent players today, almost tripling Artifact…

Auto Chess Took Over My Life In A Single Afternoon Auto Chess Took Over My Life In A Single Afternoon

I had plans, darn it. Grand plans. I was going to go outside, probably. I might have picked a flower. Maybe it would’ve slipped from between my fingers, only for me to bend down and find three stray kittens, who I’d have ultimately adopted and come to love like the furry little couch-ruining aliens they would have…

Steam Finally Adds Official LGBTQ+ Tag For Games Steam Finally Adds Official LGBTQ+ Tag For Games

The process of finding games on Steam has become increasingly driven by a tag system. Mouse over, say, Sekiro on Steam’s front page, and you’ll see descriptor tags like “Souls-like,” “Difficult,” and “Action.” Click on one of those tags, and you’ll be taken to a hub page for that game category. But that’s just the…

League Of Legends' Version Of Auto Chess Has Taken Over Twitch League Of Legends' Version Of Auto Chess Has Taken Over Twitch

We have a habit, in the gaming industry, of declaring things “The Year Of ___.” 2013 was The Year Of Luigi. 2014 was The Year Of Luigi’s Death Stare. 2019 is The Year Of Gooigi. However, if Gooigi had not transformed into an unassailable, medium-defining phenomenon, we might also be tempted to call this The Year Of …

EA: Our Loot Boxes Are Actually 'Surprise Mechanics' That Are 'Quite Ethical' EA: Our Loot Boxes Are Actually 'Surprise Mechanics' That Are 'Quite Ethical'

Given that 2017's Star Wars Battlefront II is broadly considered the tipping point in an anti-loot-box conversation that has recently led to a loot box bill in the United States senate, you might be forgiven for thinking that Electronics Arts games have loot boxes. Not so, says its VP of legal and government affairs;…

Slime Rancher, the relaxing game about slimes and also ranching, just received a free DLC expansion. It’s called “Viktor’s Experimental Update,” and it sees you delve into a “virtual re-creation” of Slime Rancher’s setting to root out nefarious glitch slimes. You’re able to make use of a whole host of new gadgets in…

They Are Billions, the tower defense-RTS hybrid that took Steam by storm last year, is now out of early access. The 1.0 update, free to all who previously purchased the game, adds a long-awaited (if, so far, divisive) campaign and new survival mode maps. It also includes a host of bug fixes and addresses stability…

Overwatch just kicked off a new themed challenge event, this one focused on combat medic Baptiste. Inspired by the “What You Left Behind” short story Blizzard released yesterday, the Reunion Challenge offers new Baptiste cosmetics—including a special skin—to players who win games from June 18 to July 1. You can also…

Telltale's Minecraft Currently Costs $700 On Xbox 360 (But You're Not Supposed To Buy It) Telltale's Minecraft Currently Costs $700 On Xbox 360 (But You're Not Supposed To Buy It)

If you really think about it, all video games—dazzling feats of technical mastery assembled over the course of countless man hours—are priceless. But if you think about it even harder, you probably still won’t want to pay $100 for a single episode of the soon-to-be-delisted Minecraft: Story Mode.

Dr Disrespect Doesn't Seem To Be Taking His Twitch Ban Very Seriously Dr Disrespect Doesn't Seem To Be Taking His Twitch Ban Very Seriously

Last week, Dr Disrespect, a popular streamer who parodies toxic gamers by just straight up being one (except in a wig), got banned from Twitch and booted from E3 for streaming from inside a public bathroom, an act that’s illegal in the state of California. Immediately after, he went radio silent. But not for long.

Twitch Sues Trolls Who Turned Artifact's Page Into A Porn-Riddled Disaster Twitch Sues Trolls Who Turned Artifact's Page Into A Porn-Riddled Disaster

Late last month, the Twitch game category section dedicated to embattled Valve card game Artifact briefly rocketed back into relevance. That was almost entirely thanks to the concerted efforts of trolls, who created dummy channels and violated the heck out of Twitch’s terms of service with broadcasts that included…

Nation Weeps As Animal Crossing's Mr. Resetti Loses His Job Nation Weeps As Animal Crossing's Mr. Resetti Loses His Job

If ever you need proof that there’s no justice in this cruel society of ours, witness the plight of one Mr. Sonny Resetti, a mole who’s selflessly dedicated the past 18 years to the admirable service of reminding Animal Crossing players to save their games and screaming at them if they forget. As of today, he’s…

Phantom Brigade Is A Mech Strategy Game Where You Can See Into The Future, And I Love It Phantom Brigade Is A Mech Strategy Game Where You Can See Into The Future, And I Love It

In Phantom Brigade’s very first encounter, I immediately found myself severely outnumbered—just two mechs against an enemy force of one mech and seven tanks. And yet, I emerged from this mechanized showdown with barely a scratch on either of my big stompy boys. It was over in seconds, but I had all the time in the…

Valve's Auto Chess Game Is Called Dota Underlords, Open Beta Next Week Valve's Auto Chess Game Is Called Dota Underlords, Open Beta Next Week

A few weeks ago, Valve announced that it’d be making its own version of the massively popular Dota 2 mod Auto Chess. Today, it revealed that it’s called Dota Underlords, and it’ll go into open beta in “approximately” one week. And if you’ve purchased the Dota 2 International Battle Pass, you can already start playing…

A Firefighting Game That Makes Fun Of The Gig Economy A Firefighting Game That Makes Fun Of The Gig Economy

Embr’s house groaned as fire licked away at its supports. Collapse was imminent. With a panicking resident slung over my shoulder, I sprinted for a second story window. Outside were three other residents I’d rescued. I took solace in the fact that, no matter what happened next, I’d done some good here. I jumped, and…

Popular Streamers React To Dr Disrespect's Twitch Ban Popular Streamers React To Dr Disrespect's Twitch Ban

Yesterday, popular Twitch streamer Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm walked into an E3 bathroom and walked out without a Twitch channel. This action likely violated the platform’s terms of service. His E3 badge got revoked shortly after. It’s incredibly rare for a streamer of Dr Disrespect’s popularity to get banned, and…

Cyberpunk 2077 And Other E3 Games Are Getting Outsold On Steam By American Truck Simulator DLC Cyberpunk 2077 And Other E3 Games Are Getting Outsold On Steam By American Truck Simulator DLC

It’s the most video games time of the year, with every developer and their (voice actor’s) dog showing off glamorous new games powered by multi-million dollar marketing budgets. In many cases, this has involved unfurling elaborate pre-order campaigns to coincide with upcoming releases. But despite the surefire sales…
