Is streaming the future of video games? And can it even work?

This comes after EA announced in June that they would launch a game streaming service as part of their clunkily titled EA Origin Access Premier offering. OK, first things first, video game streaming is not a new phenomenon. But the problem is that game streaming and video streaming are fundamentally different. Video streaming is a one-way system from the company’s servers to your TV, but game streaming is a two-way street. There are also big questions over some standard industry practices: for e

Watch 37 minutes of Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales gameplay

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a card game—it's based on Gwent—and also a "true Witcher RPG." If you're not quite clear on how that's going to work (which is entirely understandable), a new 37-minute gameplay video lays it all out. The video begins with Nilfgaard's invasion of Lyria, then skips ahead (to avoid spoilers) to Meve's effort to break the siege of Dravograd. "Some immediate, some far-reaching—eventually, a time will come when you have to deal with the consequences of the decision

West Virginia is so ready for its Fallout 76 closeup

West Virginia is, uh, really leaning into this Fallout 76 thing. “It’s finally time the rest of the world sees what a gem West Virginia is,” Gov. It was a video game, and a golf video game at that, but the sense of place was still profound. Fallout 76 isn’t so much the affirmation of West Virginia, the place, it’s an affirmation of West Virginians, the people, because now everybody wants to be one of them. Hell yes, anyone — everyone — from West Virginia should take pride in this moment.
