Ubisoft Confirms Return to Steam with Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Ubisoft to return to Steam's "unrealistic" distribution model.

Ubisoft is returning to Steam after they took their ball and went home about two years ago.

    NewsBits - The Game Awards 2022 Edition

    As far as awards shows go, this certainly was one of the awards show of all time.
    It was a night like none other. A night that opened with Steam user Milf Hunter winning a free Steam Deck from Valve.

It was also a night that ended with someone with possible ties to right-wing media saying something on mi...

No, this is a news post talking only about last night's big winners!

    Days Gone Director Blames Poor Reception on 'Woke Reviewers'

    Those damn reviewers just couldn't handle playing as a "gruff white biker looking at his date's ass."

    I liked Days Gone, at least when I played through it again recently on PC. Did it have some issues? Oh, absolutely. The pacing was rather terrible throughout, but was especially poor in the opening few hours. The melee combat was also lacking. There were some other nitpicks here and there, but I generally had a good time with it. The acting was stellar in spite of some poor...
