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.)
Microsoft has taken to the Xbox Wire to announce the new upcoming batch of Xbox Game Pass titles for the month of September 2019!
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.
Blizzard has released a brand new skin for your favourite DPS almost-tank, Bastion, in a collaboration with Lego. Built to look just like a kid’s toy, this new skin is only available for a short period of time in the Bastion’s Brick Challenge running from September 17 to 30.
Subnautica is not a horror game, but it has its own infrequent moments of terror – mostly when you first hit the darker depths of the sea and start encountering unimaginably massive leviathan-class monsters. Now we’ve got a whole new sort of terror to contend with in Below Zero – one that’s not limited to the depths, either.
One impatient dataminer has tunnelled their way into Borderlands 3’s core files for details on its first post-launch event, Bloody Harvest, and he’s come up holding a diamond as big as his head. The diamond, in this case, being an indication of what the event may contain, and his head being, well, his head.
In an act of on-brand showboating, the Cuphead soundtrack reached number one on the Billboard Jazz Charts (via VideoGamer). Cuphead: Selected Tunes From is the first ever video game soundtrack to reach such a position – even more impressive considering its two-year anniversary is this month. The album has since been kicked from the spot by a Miles Davis album (typical), but that’s no reason for them feel mugged off.
If you’re a fan of both Fortnite and Batman, it looks like an incoming crossover is the one for you. Fortnite dataminers have unloaded news and images of a stream of new locations, items, and other goodies heading to the game along with the new v10.31 patch – all themed in honour of the Dark Knight himself.
