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,...

  • Secret of Mana Remake Getting Limited Edition Physical Release for PlayStation 4

    A limited number of physical copies of Secret of Mana Remake will be released for the PlayStation 4 on February 15, 2018. Naturally, these physical copies will be exclusive to GameStop retailers in the United States, EB Games in Canada, and at some unnamed retailers in Latin America.

    Yes, the game will still be available digitally. I wonder if we'll ever see unopened versions of the PlayStation 4 release selling in excess of $1,700 (USD) like we've seen with the SNES release.

    Australian Open Tennis Coming to PS4 and XB1 in January 2018

    When's the last time there was a tennis game released for both the Xbox and PlayStation? I'm fairly certain that this is the first tennis game for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Regardless, Australian Open Tennis was announced today for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and it will be released January 2018.

    The game is being developed by Melbourne's Big Ant Studios, the studio behind the classic game, Don Bradman Cricket. It will feature Rafael Nadal and Angelique Kerber on the cover of the game. It's not exactly clear if there are other known players included in the roster. The game will feature grass courts, hard, and clay. It's also still not clear if there will be other Grand Slam events featured in the game. However, there is a ...

  • Star Wars Battlefront II Increases Rate at which Credits are Earned

    Star Wars Battlefront II Increases Rate at which Credits are Earned

    In a new Star Wars Battlefront II blog, EA and DICE detail changes that have just recently been made to the rate at which players can earn Credits in the game. You know, Credits, the only form of currency that can be used to buy loot boxes in that game (at present). The short of it is that rates are being increased across the board, including daily login bonuses, and more.
    The end-of-round payout has been increased. This is an area we agree needed to be buffed a bit, especially when it comes to rewarding players for doing well in-game. We're upping the number of Credits you get for a match across the board, and specifically bumping the top players on each
