No way to move forward now. What you need to know Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is the latest entry in the massive first-person shooter franchise.

This one's for fans of red wine and twilight sunsets. And Xbox. Microsoft's Phantom line of Xbox controllers are among my favorite Xbox accessories.

Checking out the best new feature in The Division 2

Title Update 8 brings some major changes to the Recalibration Station, here's what's new and how to get the most from it. The recalibration station in The Division 2 allows you to strip perks from some weapons and apply them to some better weapons, all in the neverending pursuit of getting as close to the "god roll" as you can. While it's a useful feature, it's been pretty clunky to use so far because it required keeping the weapons you wanted to strip in your inventory or stash until you needed them. With the release of Title Update 8 alongside the Warlords of New York expansion, Massive has made significant changes to the recalibration station and introduced the recalibration library. No longer do you need to keep the weapons, you can simply strip what you need and store that instead. How to use the recalibration library The basic operation of the recalibration station has remained the same, though obviously with the new gear 2.0 system also

Image
Pete Hines spills the beans. What you need to know Fallout 76 is the latest in Bethesda's post-apocalyptic RPG games. It has had a pretty unenthusiastic response from players since launch. Pete Hines said in an interview that Bethesda was surprised by some of the responses. Bethesda is commited to fixing some of these mistakes in the future. If someone were to say that Fallout 76 had a bit of a rough launch, that would be a massive understatement. The ambitious evolution of Bethesda's notorious post-apocalyptic RPG's didn't feature NPC's, single-player events or a cohesive story line, instead focusing on multiplayer and co-op, as well as environmental storytelling. Suffice to say, that combined with the rough state the game launched in led to a negative response from many of Fallout's fans. Pete Hines, Bethesda's senior vice president of global marketing and communications, had more to say about the subject in an interview with USGamer. I t

Business Insider managed to interview developers who have concerns about compensation and long-term survivability. You can purchase a Stadia: Premiere Edition for $130 on the Google Store . Google Stadia is a cloud game streaming service that launched late last year. Since then, it hasn't really seen a tremendous influx of games and it seems like a lot of developers don't support the platform even after all this time.

Recently, Business Insider spoke with a number of game developers about their thoughts on Stadia. Unfortunately, some significant issues emerged during those discussions. The outlet said the followin
