Gamers who were around in the late '90s and had a penchant for point-and-click adventure games may have played what is widely held as one of the best classic games of the genre. That game is Westwood Studios' Blade Runner, which is based on the iconic sci-fi film of the same name. While the game was very popular in its day, the lack of a digital version meant that the game was fading into memory. That has changed with Blade Runner getting a refresh thanks to the work of devoted fans, and it has been made available on GoG.com. The game landed five years after the final director's cut in 1992 brought renewed interest in the film. Legal wrangling and finding a developer contributed to the five years... Read more...

Mortal Kombat 11 has been available to purchase for a while now, and the game has stellar graphics and fun gameplay with fans eating it up. The full list of downloadable characters for the Kombat Pack has been unveiled, and there are some interesting (and very familiar) characters being added into the fray. The characters come from older versions of Mortal Kombat and Hollywood films. Mortal Kombat 11 is certainly not the first game in the franchise to rely on pulling in characters from outside the franchise to play. Other fighting games are known for doing the same thing. The list of downloadable characters is below. Shang Tsung Nightwolf Sindel Spawn T-800 Terminator Joker We have already seen Shang... Read more...
Gamers and fans of Apex Legends aren't at all happy with EA and Respawn Entertainment right now. The pricing structure for the skins and other items in the Iron Crown event has angered players and heaped ire onto the developers of the game. Players are angry because it costs about 700 Apex coins to open a loot box for the chance to get the skin you want. That means if you pay until you unlock all the cosmetics, it would cost you $154 and then you have the chance to buy the heirloom set for another 3500 coins. Respawn has made a statement about the Iron Crown event where it promises to rotate the legendary items that are exclusive to the game into the store, so players can buy them directly... Read more...
One of Bethesda's most popular games franchises is The Elder Scrolls. What fans really want to know about in the franchise is that the sixth game that is in the works right now, but no details on that game have surfaced. Many fear that Bethesda will drop the ball with The Elder Scrolls as it did with Fallout 76, delivering only more disappointment. Fallout 76 has been so bad for gamers that Bethesda apologized for issues with the title and continues to work hard on the game. Fortunately, while fans are waiting for the next major release of The Elder Scrolls game to launch, Bethesda is readying a mobile game called The Elder Scrolls: Blades to tide us over. The catch is that the game is in early... Read more...

Last week we talked about the small round of layoffs at Valve that mostly affected workers from the virtual reality (VR) division. Valve maintained at the time that the reduction in workers didn't mean it was abandoning the VR space. In addition to the 13 Valve employees who were terminated, Valve also shed some contractors by not renewing their contracts. We have now learned that among those contractors let go were Richard Garfield and Skaff Elias. Garfield and Elias are two of the people who make up the consulting company called Three Donkeys and are the creators of the Valve game Artifact. Valve teased the launch of Artifact back in the summer of 2017. Garfield talked about being let go, noting... Read more...
Last December we first heard that John Romero was at work on an unofficial spiritual successor to the fourth episode of Ultimate Doom called SIGIL that requires the original 1993 Steam edition of Doom to play. Two versions of the boxed game went up for preorder in late December and were expected to ship this month. Romero has announced this week that SIGIL has been delayed and is now scheduled to ship in April.

Way back in the day all anyone wanted for Christmas was a Nintendo Entertainment System. If you were lucky enough to get that NES, you undoubtedly wanted the Super Mario Bros. cartridge to go with it. Hoards of those video games were sold, and while we didn't know it at the time, the game would go on to be one of the most beloved video games ever made. While you could find the standard retail boxed version of Super Mario Bros. in just about any store that sold video games, there were a pair of incredibly rare versions of the game made. These versions are so rare because instead of being sealed in shrink wrap as the games usually were, there were sold in boxes sealed with a sticker. Only two of... Read more...
Sony is hard at work on its next-generation of game console, but we still have no idea when that console will land. Some rumors expect to see the PlayStation 5 land in 2019 while others expect a 2020 release for the new console, which will reportedly have an 8-core AMD Ryzen processor.

Amazon has made it so that users of the Amazon Fire TV with the pendant design can no longer use the official Amazon Fire TV Game Controller. The controller is incompatible with the Fire TV device after the latest 6.2.5.3 software update for the third-generation device is applied. Scuttlebutt suggests that the Fire TV Cube will also soon lose support for the gamepad. This move wasn't an accident with a new disclaimer at the bottom of the page for the Fire TV Game Controller that reads "not compatible with Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD - Pendant Design, Fire TV Edition smart TVs, or Fire TV Cube." That leaves the only device that is compatible with the Fire TV Game Controller as the Fire TV Stick.... Read more...

Bethesda has its arm pulled back and is about to throat punch Sony over cross-play. Sony is the lone roadblock standing in the way of gamers everywhere playing together no matter what system they are running.
