Here's 15 minutes of Scorn, the grotesque Giger horror coming to PC next year

Scorn is a first-person survival horror game set in a world explicitly inspired by the work of HR Giger. The gameplay trailer above provides a nice chunk of footage from the game, and it's pretty much what you'd expect if you've been following it since 2017. Things are dark, things are spine-y and cartilage-y, and your weapon plays host to a weird writhing slug.

Atari's flagship hotel looks like a 1980s fever dream

At the start of the year, the holding company that currently owns the rights to license out the Atari name and logo announced a line of Atari-themed gaming hotels with some help from the producer of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film reboots.

But things are finally about to change, with the announcement that come 2021, you'll need a Microsoft account to play the Java Edition.

World of Warcraft players won't stop making fun of its new cash shop fairy armor

World of Warcraft's cash shop is a contentious thing for World of Warcraft players. It features some extremely cool mounts at extremely high prices (averaging around $25 each) and some equally overpriced account services. Want to join your buds on a different server? That'll cost you another $25 on top of the base price for the game and its monthly subscription. But people won't stop making fun of its latest addition, an extremely colorful fairy costume complete with multicolored wings.

Bethesda intentionally sabotaged Rune 2 to protect The Elder Scrolls, lawsuit update claims

In December 2019, Rune 2 publisher Ragnarok Game sued original developer Human Head Studios, alleging that Human Head had attempted to destroy the game by very publicly abandoning it on launch day, and then refusing to turn over the source code and assets so another developer could take over the job. "We could've transitioned the game if they weren't able to participate anymore, we could've transitioned naturally—here's the source code, we'll help you find somebody," executive producer Matt Candler told me in a June 2020 interview. "But they didn't do that. They actually did everything they could to prevent us from supporting the product."
