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.

Today marks the start of Fortnite's "14 Days of Summer" event. Epic Games says that for each day, players can drop into Fortnite for something new. This event applies to both the still fairly popular Battle Royale mode and the less popular, but still enjoyable, Save the World mode.

In Battle Royale a new item will be unvaulted every day for 24 hours. There is going to be a new "LTM" featured each day. This is in addition to new daily challenges and free wards. There are also going to be new outfits "and more" featured...
 

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.

In fact,...

  • Final Review: We Happy Few

    Final Review: We Happy Few

    A fleeting Joy.
    The other week, I put up a review in progress for We Happy Few. For the sake of simplicity, I left that intact below this "final" review section up top here. So, how did We Happy Few fare given the extra time I spent with it? Not well. Not well at all. As the hours continued on, the love affair I had with the game started to chip away. At first it was just a minor annoyance when I would run into issues like poor A.I., but it became harder and harder to ignore. There are only so many times where you could just write off seeing an NPC become stuck on world geometry and walk in place. There are only so many times where it stops being surprising to see NPCs appear and disappear on the exact second of sunrise and sunset. I lost track of how many NPCs I have seen "sitting" in the air, a ways away from any actual chair. Sadly, these were all experiences encountered after a massive patch for the game that came out shortly after release. A mechanic in the game finds you consuming Joy...

  • Gabe Newell Still Cannot Say "Three" in New Dota 2 Mega-Kill Voice Pack

    Gabe Newell Still Cannot Say "Three" in New Dota 2 Mega-Kill Voice Pack

    Valve revealed and released a Gabe Newell Mega-Kills pack for Dota 2. They showed off this video as part of their International coverage last night.

    This pack is "free" to everybody that owns the Battle Pass. Get a look at the "behind the scenes" video below and then listen to every single one of his lines in the video below it.

    It's pretty good. It's actually really damn good.

  • Overwatch Has a New D.Va Focused Animated Short and New Busan Map

    Overwatch Has a New D.Va Focused Animated Short and New Busan Map

    Doritos, Mountain Dew, D.Va, and music. They all go together like Jif Peanut Butter, Smucker's jelly, and poor attempts at SEO for a gaming website.

    Today at Gamescom, Blizzard had a lovely presentation, which you can see in its entirety courtesy of Blizzplanet. But since this presentation video is mostly in German and of the "skaky cam" variety, you may want to pass on it and instead watch these direct feed videos of the new content that was announced.

    First and foremost is the announcement and release of the new Busan map for Overwatch. It's a new Control Point style map that you can actually test for yourself right now by downloading and installing...

  • MapleStory 2 Coming this October with a Battle Royale Mode

    MapleStory 2 Coming this October with a Battle Royale Mode

    People love MapleStory. I've never played this MMORPG but I'm assuming from its name that it's a mix of tree or syrup lovers and those who enjoy a good story.

    Whatever the case really is, Nexon America announced today that Ocotber 1 is the launch date for MapleStory 2. More maples, more stories.

    A beta is currently underway for the game. Plus, and get ready for this one, there will be a stand alone version of MapleStory 2's battle royale mode. There will be a little taste of that action starting tomorrow.
    The game will launch with a new class, Runeblade, 12 new dungeons, and more contents. Also, the level cap will be increased from 50 to 60. MapleStory

  • No New Assassin's Creed Game Planned for 2019 as Ubisoft Plans Long-Term Support for Odyssey

    According to Yves Guillemot, as quoted by GameSpot, there will not be a new Assassin's Creed game coming in 2019.

    Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot delivered this news earlier at Gamescom.
    "On Assassin's, we had a game [in 2018] and we have one this year, but we are not going to have a full-fledged Assassin's next year. It's just because the team were working separately, so we have two games now, one year after the other. But next year you're not going to have a fully fledged one.
    Well, that just means that they're going to release a smaller Assassin's Creed game, right? Maybe they'll do some sort of a spin-off? They've done it before so i...

  • This is Your First Look at The Surge 2 Gameplay

    This is Your First Look at The Surge 2 Gameplay

    Some good news today for those wanting a piping hot injection of all new gameplay footage for The Surge 2. Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13 provide the first look at what they're calling "pre-alpha" gameplay for the sci-fi action RPG.

    It's not particularly long, but it's something. The trailer shows off the Park sector, which is located in the middle of a city that has been "ravaged by the events of The Surge."
    Devious mercenaries called The Hunters roam the artificial, man-made forest, searching for a powerful creature. Beware their traps, their cunning cloaking devices, and most of all, the out-of-control former park guar

  • Reports of "Weak" Battlefield 5 Pre-Orders Attributed to Lack of Informative Sources from Analyst

    Just a week ago, a number of news stories popped up about weak pre-order sales figures for Battlefield V. We were also among the many outlets that put up at least one story about this. Many of us even went so far as to say that EA's decision to sandwich Battlefield V's release between the year's two most anticipated titles were not doing the game any favors. And while it's still probably true that the earlier lack of marketing and the release date aren't really doing Battlefield 5 any favors, it also might not be selling as badly as we thought. On August 14, an analyst at Cowen said that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." What we didn't know at the time, is th...
