Amazon Digital Day Sale is on: Here’s what’s good

Even with 1.5m cheaters banned, PUBG hits a huge milestone

Even with 1.5m cheaters banned, PUBG hits a huge milestone

Though PUBG is a blast to play, it still has its share of problems. While lag and bugs are to be expected from a game like this, cheating is a major problem as well. A game as popular as PUBG is going to attract a large number of cheaters, and today, we're learning just how many the developers have sniffed out.

Destiny 2 Gods of Mars will be the next big expansion

Destiny 2 Gods of Mars will be the next big expansion

Big MMOs have had a rough last quarter this year. Star Wars: Battlefront II has just made life a lot harder for many games thanks to their loot boxes. And while less dramatic, Destiny 2’s reputation was also tarnished by its first expansion, the Curse of Osiris. Bungie has promised to fix things, or at least some things, but fans may already have something new to wait for. The PlayStation Network mistakenly published details about the next DLC, titled “Gods of Mars” and the expansion will finally add a new enemy faction to the game.

Nintendo Switch “Golf” tribute to Iwata is now gone

Nintendo Switch “Golf” tribute to Iwata is now gone

It wasn’t meant to last. It was probably never meant to be there in the first place. Fact is, we’ll never know of if the super hidden “Golf” emulation in the Nintendo Switch was something Nintendo planned on as an Easter egg or if someone snuck it in without the company noticing it. The latter might be more likely as a recent update to the Switch’s firmware has apparently removed the game that was hailed by some as a heartwarming tribute to the late Satoru Iwata.

PUBG’s first big update tackles gamers’ biggest frustration

It's been a little more than a week since PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds launched on PC, and now it's time for the first post-launch update for the game. Developer Bluehole has shared a list of patch notes for this new update, which is simply being called "PC 1.0 Update #1." That suggests it isn't significant enough to bring the PC release to a new version number.

Nintendo Switch in 2018: Shoot for the moon

Nintendo Switch in 2018: Shoot for the moon

In the gaming world, the biggest story of 2017 is unquestionably the Switch. After the Wii U, many people certainly weren't expecting a whole lot from Nintendo, so it's safe to say that the Switch surprised everyone. Its success has prompted Nintendo to revise its sales forecast for FY 2017 twice now - raising it once to 10 million units and again to 14 million.

This SNES Classic wireless gamepad brings back the TURBO button

This SNES Classic wireless gamepad brings back the TURBO button

With an excellent library and a pretty decent price point, the SNES Classic Edition definitely has a lot going for it. Absent from that list of great things are suitably long controller cables, which was also a problem with its NES-flavored predecessor. Though you'd think Nintendo would have gotten the memo by now, it still shipped the SNES Classic Edition with controller cables that are entirely too short.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds review: Broken, but beautiful

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds review: Broken, but beautiful

It isn’t very often we see a game come around and define a new genre, but after building Battle Royale mods for a handful of other games, Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene is doing just that with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The game has taken the world by storm this year, which is saying a lot because PUBG had to share the limelight with huge titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Despite that, it’s managed to become a sensation and win over millions of players while still in beta. Now, 9 months after it first arrived, it has left early access and launched into version 1.0, a milestone that some early access games infamously never arrive at.
