    Steam Stealth Fest Begins July 24th

    Not a very stealthy fest if it's announcing itself this early.

    Valve just announced that the Steam Stealth Fest will run from July 24 through July 31. This Fest, like all the ones that came before it, will include discounts, demos, and more all focused on games that have some measure of stealth included.

    As with the thousand (give or take) previous Steam Fests that have occurred, this one comes with a preview trailer to give a sample of what's to come.

    Overwatch 2 Coming to Steam, More Blizzard Titles Also Possibly Coming

    The hero-based shooter arrives in August.

  • 60FPS Performance Mode Confirmed for Remnant 2

    60FPS Performance Mode Confirmed for Remnant 2

    In a world where 60FPS on current-gen is uncertain, it's nice to get some good news.


    Several games lately have shipped without any sort of a 60FPS performance mode option on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. What used to be the norm near the launch of these newer consoles has now seemingly become so uncertain that it's now newsworthy when a game announces it will ship with a 60FPS performance option.

    Remnant 2 developer, Gunfire Games, says that the game will ship...

    Microsoft - Activision Blizzard Deal on Hold Until August

    This is the acquisition that never ends. Yes it goes on and on, my friend.

    As reported on several times last week, the only remaining hurdle standing in the way of Microsoft closing the deal on their Activision Blizzard acquisition was the UK's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). Microsoft and the CMA got together on Monday, July 17th as planned to try to either finalize a deal that would satisfy the CMA.

    After a few hours of talks today, both sides agreed that Microsoft...

  • FTC Loses Request to Extend Pause on Microsoft's Activision Blizzard Deal

    FTC Loses Request to Extend Pause on Microsoft's Activision Blizzard Deal

    Microsoft is now (almost) free to close the Activision Blizzard deal after 11:59PM (PT) today.

    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just denied the Federal Trade Commission's request to issue an emergency stay to extend a temporary restraining order. The current restraining order ends July 14, 2023 at 11:59PM (PT). This failure to get that temporary extension means that Microsoft, if they wanted to, could close the deal with Activision Blizzard tonight.

    The FTC made the...

    Though it will utilize DirectStorage to help make up the difference in performance.

    The system requirements for the upcoming PC release of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart were shared earlier today in a now deleted Steam blog post. There are five separate configurations offered that show what sort of performance level you can expect.

    Notably, the absolute minimum configuration isn't using an SSD as you would expect, but rather one of those dusty (and probably smelly) HDD....

  • Poll: Are You a Fan of Paying More to Play Early?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Get that Premium Edition and play three days early!

    Looks like the latest growing trend with game releases is to offer a more expensive Premium or Gold or whatever edition that grants you access to a game a few days ahead of its official release.

    Starfield did it with their $99.99 (USD) Premium Edition. Today, Payday 3 is doing an "Early Access" release with their Silver and Gold editions. Diablo 4 did the same thing earlier in the year, as did Madden NFL 24,...

    I think it's kind of dumb that people get to play earlier. Spending more shouldn't offer a "head start" on other paying customers.
