Ghost Recon: Wildlands multiplayer beta coming this summer

Ghost Recon: Wildlands was released back in March on consoles and PC, but so far the game has only consisted of story-driven PvE gameplay. Fortunately developer Ubisoft has finally revealed that the long-awaited PvP mode will be released this fall, and an open beta will be available to players this summer. Dubbed Ghost War, the multiplayer mode promises the tactical 4v4 team combat the Ghost Recon series is known for.

Destiny 2 Beta’s biggest issues should be fixed by launch

Destiny 2 Beta’s biggest issues should be fixed by launch

In case you haven't already heard, there's currently a beta running for the highly anticipated Destiny 2. In the three short days that it's been available to players who've pre-ordered on PS4 and Xbox One, several issues have been prominently voiced by the community. These aren't things like bugs or glitches that you'd expect from a beta, but instead are related to gameplay, such as weapon damage and character abilities. Fortunately developer Bungie has said that many of these concerns have been addressed and won't be present when the final game launches.

Overwatch teases new weapon skins feature

Overwatch teases new weapon skins feature

With each event that comes to Blizzard's team-based shooter Overwatch, arguably the best part are the new character skins that get added — the purely cosmetic costume changes that let players change-up the look of their favorite heroes. Now there's evidence that players might soon be able to change the look of a character's weapon individually from their skin, as hinted in a new video from Blizzard about the creation of Overwatch's newest hero Doomfist.

Razer Destiny 2 peripherals collection is made for PC gamers

Razer Destiny 2 peripherals collection is made for PC gamers

Razer has taken the wraps off a new line of PC gaming peripherals, all of them branded with Destiny 2 imagery. The collection is comprised of a keyboard, mousepad, and headphones, all of them designed specifically for gamers; the game itself, of course, doesn't arrive for a couple months, and so it's no surprise the peripherals aren't available yet, either. Fortunately, we do have the details.

Splatoon 2 release could be ruined by Nintendo’s online ineptitude

Splatoon 2 release could be ruined by Nintendo’s online ineptitude

After months of waiting, today is the day that Splatoon 2 arrives. Through numerous test fire events, Switch-owning gamers should already have a good idea if this game is for them, and for everyone who's on the fence, the stellar reviews for the game may push them to take the plunge. It should be an exciting day for Switch owners, but instead there's something of a black cloud hanging over Splatoon 2's launch: Nintendo's online ineptitude.

Razer Phone: 5 reasons you will want this crazy thing

Razer Phone: 5 reasons you will want this crazy thing

Apparently there's going to be a Razer Phone at some point in the near future, and you're going to want to buy one. Today I'm going to run down five reasons why a person might want a Razer Phone paired with 5 reasons why the Razer Phone might not be the best purchase right out the gate. Negative factors in this adventure of a release are largely related to Razer's relative lack of experience in this field. Positives have largely to do with Razer's relative good standing in several fields, including laptop and peripheral manufacturing as well as established brand and community power.

Blizzard has terrible news for some gamers

Blizzard has terrible news for some gamers

Bad news for some of you Blizzard fans: the company has revealed that it will soon end support for some legacy Windows operating systems. This, importantly, means that you won't be able to play any of Blizzard's more recent games if you're still using one of these OSes. It is worth pointing out, however, that the best Blizzard gave ever made - Diablo II - will still run just fine.

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

N64 Classic Edition: 8 games we’d like to see

Yesterday, we heard that Nintendo may be plotting an N64 Classic Edition. With the NES Classic Edition in the books and an SNES version on the way, this is hardly surprising. If the SNES Classic Edition sells well (and we all know it will), then Nintendo will almost certainly produce an N64 Classic Edition. With that in mind, here are eight games that I think should feature on such a retro console.

Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies trailer revealed (officially this time)

Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies trailer revealed (officially this time)

We got a look at the Nazi Zombies in the upcoming Call of Duty: WWII game a few days ago, but we weren't supposed to. That leak spoiled the fun for Activision, perhaps, but gave fans their first look at the nazis that will be included in the franchise's next iteration. Following on its heels comes the official trailer for the game...or, specifically, for the nazi zombies part of it, arguably the part we care most about.

Rare NES game sells for a fortune (you won’t guess which one)

Rare NES game sells for a fortune (you won’t guess which one)

When it comes to game collecting, there are a lot of hard to find video games that cost a pretty penny. Unboxed copies of Chrono Trigger, for instance, routinely sell for more than $100 on eBay, while a handful of copies of the infamous Atari game E.T. the Extra Terrestrial sold for around $1,500 after being exhumed from a landfill in 2014. Those games and their prices, however, pale in comparison to one highly sought-after NES title: Stadium Events.
