Metro Exodus is Back on Steam and at 40% Off

525,600 minutes...

Last night, perhaps when you were snuggled up under your blankets, a little miracle happened. It was in the midnight hour (ET) when Metro Exodus returned to being sold on Steam. Normally, this isn't quite the monumental occasion, but it certainly is in the case of Metro Exodus.

It was Metro Exodus that really kicked off the season of the Epic Games Store exclusive. This was a period in which a fair number of games that were slated to be released on Steam,...

This was a regular event where Keighley would host a series of game developers in a rather informal Q&A, allowing them to talk freely...

    Valve Being Sued by Native American Nation Over Skins Gambling


    Native American Quinault Tribal Nation members have filed a lawsuit in the state of Washington against Valve over skins gambling. The group accuses Valve of participating in "unethical, oppressive, and unscrupulous business conduct."

    The plaintiffs own and operate the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino. They argue that Valve has engaged in unfair competition with legally licensed gambling operations. Valve does not have a license to conduct gambling operations. The lawsuit argues that because Valve does not have a gambling license they are illegally facilitating gambling through the trade of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skins ...

    There is a live-action Minecraft movie in the works. Unfortunately for fans, the movie won't be released until at least 2022. Specifically, the planned date for release is March 4, 2022. That's roughly three years from the time of this post. We're going to have flying cars and hoverboards by then, and they expect us to still be playing Minecraft?

    Well, if people still are playing Minecraft in three years, they'll have the following plot to look forward to. This is a small bit...

    World War Z the Game Based on the Movie Based on the Book is Out Today

    If you have a hunger for brains some co-op zombie shooting, you may be happy to hear that World War Z is out today. This four-player co-op title will probably invoke some feelings of deja vu as you take on a ton of undead swarms as you make your way through each level. What I'm trying to say is that fans of Left 4 Dead will probably want to check this one out.

    The game is, of course, inspired by the movie of the same name, which is inspired by the book of the same name. World War Z...

  • Steambirds Alliance Announced - Free-to-Play Co-op Bullet Hell Game for up to 60 Players


    Steambirds Alliance is a new, and unusual, title in development from Spryfox. The game sounds like very little else out there in the fact that it will be free-to-play, support up to 60 players in a game, and it's a co-op focused bullet-hell shooter. Like, you'll usually get games that have maybe one or two of those elements thrown together, but not all of them. They're also saying it's got some MMORPG elements included along with a heavy dose of customization.

    The overall theme...
