Here are some cheap SSDs so you can stop getting bullied in Rainbow Six Siege

I complained about this loading screen bullying in our work chat and then got bullied even more by Jarred, whose exact words were: "Shame on you HDD users! A 1TB SSD only costs $100 now. I'll upgrade so that Siege players stop calling my PC a potato! You've won, Jarred and Siege players. Once my new drive arrives, every quickly-disappearing loading screen will reek of coercion to me.

Siege of Centauri’s novel setting isn’t enough to save it from tower defense tedium

Games like Plants vs. Zombies, Kingdom Rush, and Orcs Must Die are not the only tower defense games, but they are arguably the poster children for the genre. Apart from They Are Billions, tower defense games tend to have whimsical tones, an aesthetic that can be at odds with what is a surprisingly intense style of game. Siege of Centauri brings seriousness and danger to the genre and tonally feels closer to the games that laid the groundwork for tower defense, like StarCraft. Nothing is more obn

The first successful cloud gaming platform could make billions

Cloud gaming services have been attempted by numerous companies over the past decade or more. Are people really looking for cloud game streaming options, and is there that much money to be made? As to the former, the jury is still out, but the first truly successful cloud game streaming service stands to make a ton of money. The difficulty with cloud gaming is that it requires more resources than just a video stream. Cloud gaming means you have to run the game in real-time, encoding the output,

Bloodborne ‘Return to Yharnam’ is a player-created Halloween event

And sure enough, Bloodborne players are organizing the "official" Return to Yharnam Halloween event, a community-run jaunt around the appropriately gothic city of Yharnam where everyone dresses in costume and invades as much as possible. The official Reddit thread for the Halloween-themed event calls it a return to Yharnam, although plenty of commenters make it explicitly clear that they never left. The subreddit's most upvoted comment says "'Return to Yharnam' lol I've never left." The Return t

Get Origin Access Basic free for a month by enabling two-factor authentication

Electronic Arts is now nudging Origin users in that direction with an offer of a free month of Origin Access Basic, the subscription-based service that offers unlimited access to games for $5 per month, to everyone who turns it on before the end of October.

Blizzard boss says it’s still ‘a PC developer first’

Last's year announcement of Diablo Immortal at BlizzCon resulted in an immediate and unexpectedly harsh blowback against the studio. Brack emphasized that Blizzard believes it can make mobile games without sacrificing the quality it's known for, and that "we can have Blizzard values around monetization." Blizzard, just keep making PC games like you've always done. "If you're a core PC gamer, then there are not an insignificant number of mobile games that don't have a great reputation. Diablo Imm

A hidden boss in The Division 2 went undiscovered for more than two months

Manning National Zoo was added to The Division 2 in July as part of the DC Outskirts: Expeditions DLC. And somehow, from then until today, a hidden boss named The Agony went entirely undiscovered by players—and as noted by Kotaku, would probably still be lurking unseen if developer Trick Dempsey hadn't hinted at its presence during today's State of the Game livestream. Dempsey said that changes to the Manning National Zoo, including the addition of a bunch of new bosses, prompted him to search G
