Steam Summer Sale 2019 is Now Live

Wallets be aware.

If you noticed Steam is loading slowly today, or even not at all, there is a good reason for it. The Steam Summer Sale 2019 kicked off just about an hour ago today. It seems as though this year's official name for the sale is the "Steam Grand Prix Summer Sale" and it runs from now (June 25) through until July 9, 2019.

During this time, you'll be able to save a lot of money on a lot of games. I'm talking about thousands of games being on sale here. You want Assassin's Creed Odyssey for 50% off? You got it.

How's about Devil May...
 

Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

But will still support Linux.

Valve is one of the big reasons why gaming on Linux has seen such a massive surge in recent years. One of the biggest pushes came not from specially created Linux builds of games, but from Proton, a fork of Wine that Valve released to allow for games to become playable on Linux that may not have native Linux support. At present, there are over 5,400 games that work through Steam on Linux thanks to Proton.

Over the years, Valve has recommended that those looking to get into using Linux try out Ubuntu Linux. Last Friday, that all changed....
 

Fortnite '14 Days of Summer' Event Begins Today

A fortnight of Fortnite.

Review: Judgment (PS4)

The same, but different.

Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgment. Make no mistake about...
 

EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

  • Battlefield 1 Premium Pass Will Be Free for One Week Following Battlefield V Open Beta

    We already know that Battlefield V will not have any Premium Pass to bump up the cost of the game. All future content for the game, save for probably cosmetics, will be free so long as you at least own the base game. That's pretty neat.

    However, a game that still does have a Premium Pass is Battlefield 1. If you own the game, then you may want to stay tuned for next week when DICE and EA will make the Battlefield 1 Premium Pass available for free to everyone for a limited time. It works like this: After the open beta for Battlefield V ends on September 11, DICE and EA will make the Premium Pass for Battlefield 1 free to everyone for one full we...

    Anthem Demo Arrives February 2019; 'Our World, My Story' PAX Trailer Reveal

    Details about the demo for Anthem have finally started to surface. The first official date we've heard comes courtesy of PAX West 2018, where it was finally revealed that the demo will begin on February 1, 2019.

    Keep in mind that this is a demo and not a beta before you freak out about it being too close to the game's February 22 release date. With that in mind, let's find out how you can actually get in to play this demo, yeah?

    All you need to do is either pre-order Anthem, or have an active subscription to EA Access on the Xbox One, or an active sub of Origin Access on the PC. If you have done any of those things, you'll be...

    Valve Released Parts of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for Free

    If you ever wanted to play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but you just didn't have the cash, you may be happy to hear that a feature stripped version of the game was just made available for free tonight.

    Valve released Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Free Edition for those who don't mind just playing against bots or viewing matches through GOTV. I did hear that LAN play was possible with this release as well, so that's certainly a pretty big plus. However, if you wants things like actual online games, matchmaking, inventories, XP, ranks, and everything else, you'll have to pony up the $14.99 (USD). I'm assuming ...
