Total Reliable Delivery Service open beta is like Goat Simulator crossed with UPS

The title of Totally Reliable Delivery Service is a lie, because the delivery service in question is not actually reliable at all. And not because the guy says he rang the doorbell but clearly he didn't because you were there all day, literally waiting for your package.

Warner Bros. boss says subscription-based gaming won't replace conventional purchases

The videogame industry is gearing up to take another run at streaming games, and with the muscle of companies like Google and Microsoft behind it, coupled with increased accessibility to broadband internet in general, it might actually work out this time. We said in March that in a broad sense, it's a race to become "the Netflix of games," which obviously implies a deeply disruptive impact on the videogame ecology as a whole. But Warner Bros.

Cyberpunk 2077 will not have a morality system

RPGs often try to model "morality" as an explicit system through things like NPC reactions, character appearance, or endgame outcomes. It's a tricky thing to get right, and not just because the world is rarely black and white. With no real consequences for their actions, there's nothing stopping players from metagaming for a specific outcome, or murdering every NPC in town when they get bored.
