Despite the fact GTA 6 hasn't been officially announced, there are plenty of GTA 6 rumors flying around that make us excited for whatever developer Rockstar Games launches next. The latest gossip is that GTA 6 could launch in October 2023 and be set in Miami . That's from a dubious online source though, but additional details from that leak including a single, male protagonist, with the game being set in the 1970s, with a chaptered story like Red Dead Redemption 2 . Combine that with Rockstar teasing fans with the official Rockstar Support account is telling us to "stay tuned" for GTA 6 updates on Twitter and it just keeps getting more exciting.

In a genre that has largely gone free-to-play, World of Warcraft is easily the most expensive MMO. Though it comes with a free trial ( which has its own problems ), you'll need to fork over $40 for the latest expansion pack and sign up for a $15 monthly subscription to really experience Azeroth. I've happily stomached that cost for 17 years because WoW is a genre-defining titan that continues to innovate and reinvent itself in exciting ways. But every time I've had to shell out more money to pay for one of WoW's different game services like a server transfer, it feels like I'm being taken advantage of. WoW's game services are an insanely high toll you sometimes have to pay just to enjoy the game as Blizzard intended. Before we get into why WoW's game services are such a negative experience, let's break down exactly what they are and how much they cost: Boosting a character to level 50 costs $60. Changing a character's race costs $25. Changing a character's faction costs … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft’s $25 server transfer fee is infuriatingly overpriced
Now that the launch dust has settled, it feels like a reasonable moment to pause and reflect on the Cyberpunk 2077 story – not only because it may help in identifying danger signs in the future. There are two big things to note before digging into the disasters around its development and release, though. First, the game has already made a lot of money, albeit significantly less than expected. Shifting 13 million copies in its first ten days , the game briefly made CD Projekt the most valuable company in Poland, before news of catastrophic bugs kicked the stock price into reverse . At the time of writing it's the biggest game launch ever in terms of digital sales, grossing $609 million via those channels as of December 31. From the perspective of CD Projekt's management, the worst is arguably in the past now. Given enough patching and expressions of regret, Cyberpunk 2077 may eventually even be deemed a success, a late-flowering Early Access title in all but name, similar to … [Read more...] about What can we learn from the Cyberpunk 2077 launch disaster?
"Enter the Survival Horror..." with those four words, Capcom kick-started a genre revolution. The Resident Evil series made its debut on March 22, 1996, for the original PlayStation. In the 25 years since, Resident Evil has grown to become one of gaming's most beloved and best-selling franchises – shifting over 107 million units in cumulative sales worldwide. As you'll learn in this ultimate guide to the Resident Evil games, one of the reasons the series has been able to enjoy such success and longevity is its willingness to reinvent itself, mutating to better survive its environment. Because of that desire to survive, the Resident Evil series has a somewhat messy library of games to its name. With seven (soon to be eight) mainline entries and scores of spin-offs – not to mention just as many remakes, remasters, and reissues – it can be difficult to grasp just how wide-reaching and experimental Resident Evil has truly become since 1996. With Resident Evil: Village on the near … [Read more...] about The ultimate guide to the Resident Evil games
Get swept up into the vibrant culture of authentic Lucha Libre with the upcoming comic collection La Mano del Destino . Hot off drawing the non-fiction book La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo , Chicano writer/artist J. Gonzo has created a love letter to the complex and heatfelt pro wrestling sub-genre of Lucha Libre that has everything a superhero fan would want:: a hero, a villain, consequences, and some great costumes. La Mano del Destino is a Faustian story of a luchador (wrestler) who is robbed of everything he holds dear, and must fight from underneath to get his life back - along with revenge. But when he makes a sinister deal to make the path back a little easier, it might all come back to bite him (and make it worse). Gonzo originally self-published a serialized version of La Mano del Destino that was sold DIY, but now he's partnered with Image Comics and Top Cow Productions for a 240-page trade paperback edition going on sale May 25. With an advance copy in hand and … [Read more...] about La Mano del Destino brings authentic Lucha Libre culture to comics
