A deleted tweet leaves fans convinced of Dark Souls on Switch

Dark Souls fans were met with disappointment over the weekend, after a rumored Nintendo Switch remaster of the first game in the series failed to materialize. But that rumor spread despite any credible sourcing or evidence to support it — born from a fellow fan’s single, deleted tweet, Dark Souls on Switch has become the latest example of a very public, very false promise.

In late November, writer for fan site Nintendo Switch Network Marcus Sellars tweeted about an upcoming Bandai Namco Entertainment event.

Catherine remake is in the works for PS4, Vita

Atlus is bringing back Catherine, its unique, 2011 puzzle game developed by the Persona team. A PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita remake is currently in development, the company revealed this week, with updated visuals and entirely new content planned for the game.

Catherine: Full Body will again star Vincent, who’s caught in the middle of several very different women named Catherine. In the daytime, he wrestles with his desires and temptations; at night, while he’s asleep, he is transported to a mysterious, sheep-filled hell where he must solve puzzles as fast as he can — or die.

More Destiny 2 bugs have the community up in arms again

If you were thinking that the level of distrust between Destiny 2’s player base and developer Bungie couldn’t get any higher, think again. The latest controversy to roil the Destiny community hit over the weekend, and Bungie is on its heels once more in front of an angry mob of dissatisfied, frustrated players.

It all started last Friday, when the weekend merchant Xur arrived in the game world with a new item in his inventory: Three of Coins. Destiny players will remember this consumable, which provides a boost to your chances of receiving an exotic engram from an activity that can drop them. However, Bungie has never provided details on the nature of the buff, leaving players guessing as to its exact usefulness.

CSGO Lotto was never a gambling site, and here’s why

CSGO Lotto was never a gambling site, and here’s why

In summer 2016, it was discovered that CSGO Lotto, a so-called “skin gambling” site, was co-owned by two members of YouTube's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community. But as it turns out, Trevor "Tmartn" Martin and Tom "Syndicate" Cassel weren’t actually running a gambling site at all. Coleman Watson, their lawyer, said that people could have played for free, had they simply read the directions.

Following the CSGO Lotto scandal, which broke on July 4, 2016, Martin and his company were the target of multiple civil lawsuits. But they were never charged with a crime by any state or federal agency. That’s because, their lawyer told Polygon, they didn’t actually break any laws.

A fake Cuphead makes it to iOS App Store

A fake Cuphead makes it to iOS App Store

Cuphead’s maker is apparently the victim of a forged iOS port of the challenging run-n-gun shooter. It showed up on the App Store early this morning, listed at $4.99. It’s still on the store.

It seemed hard to believe that this could be a legitimate product, considering it had no announcement preceding the launch, and there has been no word that Studio MDHR was bringing Cuphead to platforms other than Xbox One and Windows PC, where it launched on Sept. 29.

PUBG’s 3D replay system will be ready for launch

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds' 3D replay feature will be part of the game’s 1.0 release. In a press release issued this morning, Minkonet, the South Korean technology company building the system, said that 3D replay will arrive in time for the Dec. 20 launch, alongside vaulting and climbing and the new desert map, Miramar.

3D replay, which was first teased in May and formally announced at this year’s E3, records everything happening around the player within a radius of one kilometer. While a game is underway, the software stores that information locally on a user’s computer. Then, when the player dies, they immediately see a 20-second “killcam” view from behind the player who shot them.

Need For Speed Payback gets more cars, new events in free update

Need for Speed Payback gets its first big planned content update on Tuesday, Dec. 19. The update introduces a new event series, new cars for it, and other features. The update is free.

Speedcross is the new mode, and it gets a new class of cars with it. Speedcross is a rack-up-the-score driving event over pre-set course against an AI rival. The course features drift zones, jumps, speed traps and “smackables,” basically things to knock down.
