PS5 and RTX 3080 preorder kerfuffles suggest Winter is Coming

This week prospective buyers of the Sony PlayStation 5 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3080 are having a rough time.

EA’s Origin is on the way out, but its replacement sounds a whole lot better

Last month, EA announced a fairly major change to its subscription services, revealing that it would unify them under the name of EA Play. The company's subscription service was previously known as EA Access on console and Origin Access on PC, with a third, more expensive subscription known as Origin Access Premier, so some kind of unification was certainly in order. With that announcement, the basic subscription was rebranded to EA Play across all platforms, while the premium subscription became EA Play Pro.

Fall Guys had a secret Cheater Island where it put misbehaving players

Fall Guys had a secret Cheater Island where it put misbehaving players

Fall Guys is one of the most popular games in the world at the moment, and a game that has reached such a level of recognition is undoubtedly going to attract some unsavory folks. We normally hear about cheaters plaguing free-to-play games where there's no real consequence to getting banned (it isn't like they're losing any money they paid for the game, after all), but it seems that even Fall Guys' $20 asking price isn't enough to dissuade people from cheating to try to rack up wins, either.
