Reader Discussion – Are You More Interested In Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered or Infinite Warfare?

about X hours ago from

So fellow editor Suriel Vazquez and checked out some of the remaster of Modern Warfare for a Test Chamber we shot today and...it doesn't look half bad! Not too surprising given it's probably one of the most adored first-person shooters ever made. However, Infinite Warfare also looks pretty interesting, a sort of mix between Battlestar Galactica and Saving Private Ryan.

As someone who's a big fan of space operas, I feel myself kind of getting a little excited for Infinite Warfare after being super disappointed with Black Ops III' mess of a campaign. What about you, readers? Two seemingly very different games housed within the same design. Which are you excited for, if either? Let us know in the comments below!

Today Lego took the time to reveal a new set, this one centered around some of DCComics' most famous heroines (and a certain villain). It's worth noting that the characters are dolls instead of typical Lego figures. You can glimpse the set here:

Report: Digital Homicide Drops Legal Action Against Steam Users

Report: Digital Homicide Drops Legal Action Against Steam Users

Last month, we reported on a surprising court filing from developer Digital Homicide against online Steam users who had left negative reviews and comments about the company's games. Subsequently, Valve chose to remove that developer’s games from the popular online purchase platform, Steam. Today, TechRaptor is reporting that as of September 26, Digital Homicide has requested that the matter be dropped without any further action or prejudice. 

According to details provided to TechRaptor by developer James Romine, the request to dismiss the matter is a function of financial inability, even though the developer believes that its case was strong. Based on quotes provided to TechRaptor, the developer faced significant challenges to its business following the removal of its games from Steam. 

We have reached out to Valve to confirm whether the request for its user data has indeed been dropped. We have also reached out directly to Digital Homicide for confirmation that they have ceased their legal action in the matter. If either respond, we will provide an update.

For a game about something as simple as farming and rural life and relationships, Stardew Valley sure has an enthusiastic following, including several members of the Game Informer staff. Our reviewer, Javy Gwaltney, also got a big kick out of the game.  Today, developer ConcernedApe released  version 1.1 of the popular PC game, and the release plays host to all sort of bug fixes and additions. 

As we reported when the beta of the 1.1 patch went live last week, players now have new relationship options with Shane and Emily, new maps available at character creation, and lots of new structures, activity options, and NPC behaviors. In addition, around 30 distinct bugs have been squashed, improving the overall play experience. You can read about the full list of improvements and fixes on the developer's official page

Ben Affleck's Solo Batman Film Has A Working Title

Whether it was for simplicity's sake or because The Dark Knight was already taken, Ben Affleck's upcoming solo Batman film will simply be called The Batman.

Director, co-writer, and Batman himself, Ben Affleck stated in an interview with The Associated Press that they have a title, but it may only be a temporary one. Affleck also said he was excited about the script, which is still a work-in-progress.

Brush Up On Your 3DS Knowledge With Did You Know Gaming's Newest Segment

Gaming trivia YouTube channel Did You Know Gaming takes a closer look at the history of the Nintendo 3DS in its newest video. While many of the facts aren't exactly obscure, it nonetheless gives a thorough overview of the handheld console's history and Nintendo's other attempts at 3D. 

The first half of the video deals mostly with the latter, digging into the company's experiments with 3D. For example, outside of the infamous Virtual Boy, Nintendo developed a 3D screen for the GameCube, though it never released on the market because of its high cost.
