When it comes to narrative-driven video game titles, BioWare was once a central focus piece for gamers. They brought out countless RPG narrative experiences that had plenty of players craving for more. With the likes of Dragon Age, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect, almost everyone had played a BioWare title. Some of those iconic video games had a developer who helped from a developer known as David Gaider who had worked with BioWare, for nearly twenty years.
Red Dead Redemption was a beautiful game. It was a title delivered by Rockstar and while it may have received some flack initially for being a Grand Theft Auto clone with horses, what we actually got was an incredible narrative-driven western adventure. Likewise, the title was set in a massive open world that gave players an adventure just from roaming the in-game world, crossing guns with outlaws, thieves, lawmen, and wildlife. It wasn’t very long after its release that we got a DLC expansion known as Undead Nightmare, a title that brings in the undead for players to fight against which was a massive success.

Nothing has changed in Runescape, and for many members of the community, that’s the problem. The UK DCMS’s report on loot boxes last week also discussed other types of in-game monetisation, and one section of the committee’s findings mentioned a person who had built up £50,000 (around $62,000 USD) from Runescape purchases – which has ignited a fresh meltdown over the game’s aggressive microtransactions.
If you’ve had a rough time playing Rainbow Six Siege over the past few weeks, you’re not alone. Ubisoft’s tactical shooter has been the target of an extended array of denial of service attacks since the launch of Ember Rise, and today Ubisoft has detailed some specific steps the company will be taking in the wake of these continued service disruptions.
Yes, fans of looting and shooting are thirsty for Borderlands porn. Now that Gearbox’s latest entry in the series is upon us, porn searches around the series have surged by 12,905%. Yes, that’s not a typo – Borderlands 3 has inspired a nearly thirteen-thousand percent increase in interest in related porn. (You won’t find any Borderlands 3 shift codes that way, friends.)
Yesterday, Valve detailed some changes to Dota 2’s ranked matchmaking system, along with some major ban waves for “bad actors.” Now, players affected by those bans have started to complain about their suspensions on social media – and it looks like some of the worst offenders have been banned for the better part of the next two decades.
