Gears POP has proven to be the failure everyone expected, closing next April

Gears POP has proven to be the failure everyone expected, closing next April

In August 2019 Microsoft released a Clash Royale clone called Gears POP, which is themed around the popular vinyl toy line while offering tons of cutesy Gears of War characters. Of course, connecting a toy line to a popular gaming genre doesn't guarantee success, especially when you idiotically tie adorable graphics to a historically mature line of games. I suppose this is why Microsoft has announced that it will shutter Gears POP on April 26th, 2021.

Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed again, now coming December 10

Well, it's official, Cyberpunk 2077 is coming to Stadia on the same day it will release on every other platform, November 19th. Up until today CD Projekt's official stance was that the game would arrive on Stadia before the year was out even through the studio offered a release date for every other platform, calling into question whether or not the game would arrive on Stadia on the same launch day as PC and consoles. Thankfully CD Projekt has tweeted that the game will arrive on Stadia on the 19th of November, and if you're eager to get your hands on the title, pre-ordering is now available on the Stadia store.

Facebook also wants to give cloud gaming a try

Facebook also wants to give cloud gaming a try

Facebook has been invested in games for a long time (Farmville, anyone?), and even though the company's latest Oculus headset garnered heavy criticism for its Facebook login requirement, it's still pushing forward with new initiatives. Cloud gaming is apparently the next frontier for the company contributing to election interference, though Facebook is taking a different approach than its rivals.

FAR: Lone Sails is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure game, now available on Android

FAR: Lone Sails is a gorgeous atmospheric adventure game, now available on Android

If you've never heard of it, FAR: Lone Sails is a stylish adventure game that's existed on PC since 2018, and it's a well-reviewed title that offers a story-rich experience without displaying a word on the screen. Primarily I would describe the release as a relaxing game that offers gameplay similar to indies like Inside, where the goal is to always move to the right to advance the story, and there's a unique Howl's Moving Castle mechanic in this release that will see you control a massive vehicle as it sails across a dried-out seabed. Of course, roadblocks are expected as you explore this desert, and so you'll solve puzzles to continue your journey forward.
