  2. With Xiao coming soon, it's a sure thing that you're going to want coffers filled with resources to take advantage of the new banners in patch 1.3 We'll be hanging out and enjoying the sights, the sounds, and the smells of freshly cooked food in the streets of Liyue as we experiment with a new tower defense offering and get to do more quests with our masked companion Xiao. I have a feeling that prior to the big drop of a next region, Xiao is going to quickly rise to the top ranks of Genshin popularity. Xiao strikes me as a kind of Boba Fett character, where he makes a few awesome but minor a

  4. On Friday, January 22, Microsoft announced a steep price increase for its Xbox Live membership service, a service that online play is reliant upon as well as the other freebie perks that the subscription allows. The announcement was immediately met with backlash from the community, both industry and consumer side, en masse and it was due to that feedback that the company has rescinded its initial decision to up the pricing. In addition to the decision to reverse the price hike, Microsoft is also removing the Xbox Live requirement for playing free-to-play online titles such as Apex Legends and
  5. 2021 is a new year, which means a new chance to experience all-new gaming tales! For those that love the feeling of abject terror and the threat of peeing one's pants, we've got just the thing! While there are many horror games coming out in 2021, here are some of the ones I'm looking forward to the most — even if most of my time playing games like these consists of one eye closed, the other eye squinting, and watching a Disney movie after as a palette cleanser. From Resident Evil Village to The Medium and some indie adventures peppered in, here are the horror games that I can't wait to pla

  9. A new Cyberpunk 2077 update is now available for PC and console players alike, as well as Google Stadia. The latest patch is one of many on the horizon following a chaotic launch and this update tackles major areas of improvement including open-world issues, commonly reported bugs, and overall stability concerns. CD Projekt Red took to the game's blog to share with players what the latest update has in store, saying "In this update, we focused on various stability improvements, which you can find outlined in the patch notes below. We will continue this work in patch 1.2 and other upcoming u
  10. Click to watch embedded media Robert Kirkman is best known for his comic series The Walking Dead and its subsequent television adaption. Soon, another one of Kirkman's comics will be hitting your screen, this time as an exclusive to Amazon Prime. The new show is called Invincible, and Kirkman has announced that it will debut on March 26. Between all of the games and movies that revolve around superpowers these days, you may have reached your saturation point when it comes to heroes in tights with special abilities. Even so, Invincible might be worth giving a chance. It's about a young man
  11. Click here to watch embedded media Since its release last month, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 has focused on uniting the multiverse's best hunters. Fans of Epic Games' popular battle royale game have been graced by the presence of the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda, Kratos, Master Chief, and now the bane of aliens across space and time, The Predator. To further fuel our unhealthy desire for Fortnite skins, Senior Editor Jeff Cork and I set out for an adventure to unlock the Predator cosmetic set, which features the Yautja's deadly wrist blade harvesting tool, Hunter's Trophy back bling, a 90s-as-h
  12. Vicarious Visions Merges With Blizzard! Vicarious Visions, the studio behind the recent re-makes of Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk Pro-Skater 1+2, has officially been merged with Blizzard according to this gamesindustry.biz article! As stated in the report, the Vicarious Visions team will now be dedicated to existing Blizzard games and initiatives. We reported on a potential Diablo II Remaster being made by Vicarious Visions last year, and this merge supports the rumor that it may very well be happening. The Darkening of Tristram The Darkening of Tristram anniversary event is currently
  13. Activision's Vicarious Visions Merged into Blizzard According to Gameindustry.biz, long-time Activision publishing studio Vicarious Visions is now merged into Blizzard Studios and will be "fully dedicated" to Blizzard titles going forward. The former studio head, Jen Oneal, has been promoted to Blizzard executive vice president of development. Vicarious Visions is most known for the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games, and comes with a team of about 200 people. It is unknown what projects they are going to be working on. For more information, check out the news post from Gameindustry by clicking the
  14. Vicarious Visions has moved from the Activision side of the company to the Blizzard side moving forward, reports Gameindustry.biz. This shift also places the studio head, Jen Oneal, on the Blizzard leadership team where she will report to Blizzard president J. Allen Brack. Vicarious Visions has a wealth of work on Activision titles under its belt, most recently the Tony Hawk game resurrection in the form of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, which was well received. "Forget the weird peripherals, bad sequels, and questionable ports that defined Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in the series’ later years,"
  15. Click to watch embedded media For years, Square Enix has been one of the RPG titans in the world of video games. While most know Square for its groundbreaking work on titles such as Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Chrono Trigger, the company branched out in 2010 and published a new franchise. Behind the direction of the esteemed Yoko Taro and his team at the now-closed development studio Cavia, Nier was born. A spin-off of the Drakengard games, the cult classic finds players slashing their way through the villainous Shades, attempting to reverse the effects of the deadly Black Scrawl dise
  16. Genshin Impact continues rolling along with another big content drop coming February 3. The open world free-to-play gacha game is bringing a character that you may have met much earlier in your journey in as a new playable 5-star character. Yep, I hope you've been saving your primogems, because Xiao is here! Xiao is an Anemo (wind) character that uses polearms, with the ability to siphon his own life force to do more damage. Also, he has a freaking cool mask. Yeah, basically I've been saving up my primogems since before Klee came out, so I'm ready to take a bunch of rolls on Xiao's banner.
  17. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening was a treasure when it first released, and when a modernized version later arrived on Nintendo Switch, the journey got even better. If you're like us and are always on the hunt for an excuse to re-play through the iconic adventure Link himself, might we suggest pointing that sword at Minecraft next? Minecraft players are among the most creative in gaming, taking the sandbox world and truly turning out incredible creations. From full-on replicas to fan-driven content, Minecraft is a flourishing world of creativity and wonder. It's also now the home of an
  18. Agent 47 may be the playable avatar and box-art star of the Hitman series, but I’d argue that he’s not the main draw. That distinction has to go to the meticulously crafted levels that IO Interactive has delivered for years. They’re sandboxes in the best sense of the term, providing interesting, beautiful, and varied backdrops for players to ply their grim trade. Each level is purposely built for replayability, rewarding players who fully explore each setting with not only unlocks but a greater vision of the myriad little stories that populate each place. One of Hitman 3’s standout locations i
  19. Despite the earlier confirmation that the Uncharted movie starring Spider-Man's Tom Holland as a much younger Nathan Drake wrapped up filming back in October 2020, the upcoming film adaptation has seen a lengthy delay before its release. No longer slated for March 2021, the new anticipated release date has been pushed back to 2022. Tom Holland and company have been providing steady updates about the upcoming film, all presenting the picture that everything was right on schedule. Barring that, there is still an ongoing pandemic, which has been throwing complications into the mix across almos
  20. Microsoft has just revealed its Xbox Games With Gold February 2021 free games lineup as January comes to a close. Just as is the case every month, February brings with it more free games for Xbox players to enjoy with an active Gold Live membership or the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. For those excited for more free games to try out, here is what the Xbox Games With Gold February 2021 free games lineup has to offer.

  21. The Xbox Live Gold membership is getting a price increase and the common reaction to the news is anger when comparing the 12-month membership to that of PlayStation Plus. For current 12-month members and for those interested in the Game Pass Ultimate, here is what you need to know about the Live service changes and what that means for you as the player. Xbox Live first launched 18 years ago and allows for players to enjoy online components of games, exclusive savings on first and third-person titles, and freebies every single month. Up until now, the PlayStation Plus and Live memberships we

  23. If you’re reading this, chances are you already own way too many Pop figures and are peeping this article for an excuse to add just one more figure to your already crowded shelf or cabinet. That’s totally okay, of course; collecting things is fun! Funko Fair 2021 is kicking off with a new line of figures ripe for pre-ordering. As such, we’ve gathered some of the coolest Pops based on gaming and pop (ah) culture as a whole. Your wallet can thank us later. First up is Eivor from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Unfortunately, only the male variant is available, but he should look good sitting next
  24. Click to watch embedded media Today has been like Christmas for fans of one of Capcom's most revered franchises. During the Resident Evil Showcase, we learned when we'd be playing the new horror game, what the game's collector's edition would look like, and got our first look at gameplay. Most notably though, for fans looking to get their hands on the game sooner rather than later, an exclusive demo for PlayStation 5 users is available now. The demo, titled Maiden, features our titular character attempting to flee the mansion seen in the trailer footage. But there's a catch. Instead of wie
  25. On this week's episode of The Game Informer Show, we discuss a handful of the games we've been playing recently, including Hitman 3, There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension, When the Past Was Around, and Valorant. We also run down all of the recent Resident Evil Village news. At the end of the show, we interview IO-Interactive's game director Mattias Engström and executive producer Forest Swartout Large about their work on Hitman 3 and how they design levels with comedy in mind. It's a full show, but we make time for another fantastic round of community emails in there somewhere. So please join Jeff
  26. Netflix is continuing on its gaming adaptations streak with a new animated CGI series called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. While we've known about the upcoming show for a while now, we have yet to learn more about what it will be like beyond a few stills and the initial teaser trailer. In a world set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 4, Capcom shared another new look at the upcoming Resident Evil show with a second video. Netflix has previously teased the new series, saying "When biohazards run wild, only a pair of veteran zombie slayers can get the job done," reads the soci
  27. In addition to a new Resident Evil Village trailer and some demo footage in anticipation for the next horrific chapter in the franchise, some extra content stemming from the game series’ 25th Anniversary was premiered during the showcase. Following the gameplay reel of the new PVP-focused RE: Verse and another trailer for the upcoming Internal Darkness Netflix film, Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment announced a crossover event with The Division 2 and Resident Evil. For a limited time, players will have the opportunity to collect classic cosmetic items like exclusive outfits and weapon skins i
