Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...
 

G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider Will Have a New Game Plus Mode

    Shadow of the Tomb Raider Will Have a New Game Plus Mode

    New Game+ modes aren't all that original to games, but it looks like Shadow of the Tomb Raider is going to put a unique spin on things when it's released.

    When you complete the game once, it will allow you to carry over a bunch of skills and gear, but it will also allow Lara to venture down completely new skill paths that were not available in the first go around.

    The Quiet Man's Latest Trailer is Action Packed

    Throughout the history of mankind, "speak softly and carry a big stick" has never been more appropriately used than right now. I have fact checked this, so don't call me out on it. You're wrong.

    Square Enix must think so as well because their latest trailer for The Quiet Man shows off just a bit of the action you'll get to experience when this blend of live-action and not-live-action launches on Steam and the PlayStation 4 for $14.99 (USD). A firm release date has not yet been revealed.

    New Hitman 2 Video Series Shows "How to Hitman"

    The first entry in a new HITMAN 2 video series was released today courtesy of WBIE and IO Interactive. The series, appropriately called "How to Hitman," begins with today's video, "Immersion."

  • New Battlefield 5 Trailer Features Fighting in Europe, a Song About a Brothel, and Battle Royale

    The latest Battlefield V trailer features footage of intense fighting on the Western Front of WWII, while a cover of House of the Rising Sun plays. That is certainly an interesting choice for a song. I'll give them that at least.

    Hey, whatever. It's a new trailer for Battlefield V and it's precisely the sort of thing that was needed.

    This trailer is for Gamescom 2018, which is being held next week. The footage below includes a look at look at some previously unannounced maps, such as the "streets of Rotterdam" and the "burning sands of North Africa."

  • The MP5 Finally Returns to Counter-Strike

    The MP5 Finally Returns to Counter-Strike

    Long ago, in a Counter-Strike far, far away there existed the MP5. Once Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released, the weapon was struck down by the MP7. Fear spread far and wide that we would never again see the return of the little SMG that could.

    Worry not dear players, for the MP5 is indeed back in Counter-Strike and maybe better than ever? I don't really know, I haven't tried it out yet and even if I did, I haven't played Counter-Strike in years so it might actually be garbage but who the hell cares it's back, baby! Yeah!
    Often imitated but never equaled, the iconic MP5 is perhaps the most

  • The Ghost of Titanfall 2 Haunts Battlefield 5 as Analyst States "Weak" Pre-order Figures

    Less than a day after EA executive Patrick Soderlund announced his departure from the company, comes word that pre-order sales for Battlefield V are not doing all that well.

    Analysts at Cowen say that "pre-order sales of Battlefield V have been weak." These thoughts from Cowen come courtesy of Sarah Needleman, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal.

    Cowen feels as though the release date and a lack of marketing are really hurting Battlefield V. They say that "Battlefield could suffer the same fate as EA's 'Titanfall 2'."

    As it stands, Battlefield V's release week is pinned smack dab between Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of...
