Eve: Valkyrie will have cross-platform multiplayer for Rift, Vive, and PSVR

Since online multiplayer games first made their way to consoles, they have been a huge dividing factor among gamers. After all, if you own a PS4 and your best friend bought an Xbox One, your days of getting together and playing online are over. Now the same issue is worrying PC gamers who have picked out their VR headset of choice. Thankfully CCP Games is ready to put some of those worries to rest.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst delayed until June

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst delayed until June

If you're looking forward to Mirror's Edge Catalyst, then you're probably pretty excited for this weekend. The closed beta will begin tomorrow, and will last for five days. Unfortunately, while some people may be playing the game as early as this weekend, everyone is going to have to wait a bit longer for the game's full launch.

Today the game's Design Director Erik Odeldahl announced that the game would be receiving another delay. This is the second time that the game has been delayed. The game was originally slated to be released in February, and was pushed back until May 24th. Thankfully this delay isn't quite as long.

The game is now set to be released to the public on June 7th here in the US. I'm not quite sure just how much work can be done in those extra two weeks, but EA feels that it will be necessary, in order to address player feedback from this weekend's upcoming closed beta.

No one is ever excited to hear that a game has been delayed, but I really don't mind. Sure, I'll have to wait a bit longer. However, I'm of the mind that a delayed game is far better than a buggy launch.

Hearthstone’s next update will be remembered for its nerfs

Hearthstone’s next update will be remembered for its nerfs

Trading (or collectible) card games are nothing new in the physical realm, from Magic the Gathering in the West to Yu-Gi-Oh in the East to Pokemon everywhere in between. Very few, however, can lay claim to the same fame in the digital, mobile realm the way Blizzard's Hearthstone can. Set in the same world as WarCraft, Hearthstone is one of the very few of its kind to actually make a profit from the genre. Soon, however, Blizzard will be shaking the foundations with its Whispers of the Old Gods update, which will probably be more remembered for how it nerfed the game.
