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.

  • Devil May Cry 5 Rumors Surface

    Devil May Cry 5 Rumors Surface

    Please note that as with all rumors, there is nothing official here until Capcom announces something. Take whatever you see here as "leaked" with a big grain of salt. With that said, new rumors surfaced this week on ResetERA concerning the still unannounced Devil May Cry 5.

    According to the rumors, the game has already been in development for roughly two years and is looking to be released some time in the fiscal year 2019 (between April 2018 and March 2019). Continuing, the plan was to announce Devil May Cry 5 at this year's PSX (December 9-10), but this idea was pushed to E3 2018 in order to bolster Sony's press conference. Yes, this also seems to indicate that there is some degree of Sony exclusivity tied to the game.

    The full list of rumored details can be seen below.

    The point-and-click style of the original trilogy served as the basis for the re-imagined gameplay, which focuses on close-up investigation and interaction with nightmarish visions that plague the protagonist of the game David Gordon.

    Black Mesa Devs Delay Xen Again But at Least They Added God Rays

    Oh look, Black Mesa announced another delay. This is totally shocking and unexpected. Xen is delayed (again). Oh no. Surprising. Etc.
    Straight to the bad news: we are pushing back the release of Xen. We are truly sorry for getting everyone's hopes up and then delaying... again. We worked very hard to make December, but we are not yet ready. As a team, we take FULL responsibility for that. We have an internal deadline we are confident in, and we will be getting everyone more details as we get closer to that date.
    The Black Mesa team at least released some screenshots and gifs to show you that they're actually getting ...

    4X Game Warhammer 40K: Gladius - Relics of War Announced

    Oh boy, there's a new 4X experience coming soon for Warhammer 40,000 fans. Slitherine and Game Workshop announced Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War today that brings back some good, old-fashioned, "explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate" gameplay. Why the hell it isn't called "4E" is beyond me.
    Warhammer 40,000: Gladius incorporates the dark, gothic, far future science-fantasy setting in ways never tried before. A brand new, deep storyline has been created to combine elements of 4X gameplay with a combat-focused system. The evolution of technology, construction of infrastructures and exploration of an unknown world, goes hand in hand with the management

  • Sources Say Gazillion Employees Laid Off Today as Marvel Heroes Forced to End a Month Ahead of Schedule

    Last week, news started to spread that the developer of Marvel Heroes, Gazillion, would be closing up shop and shutting down their once popular action-RPG title, Marvel Heroes. The initial plan was to let the team and the game continue on until the end of 2017.

    It seems those plans have abruptly changed. Multiple sources have said that Gazillion was shut down today, on the eve of Thanksgiving. Marvel Heroes itself will now come to a rapid and unceremonious conclusion on Friday. That would be this Friday, November 24. This reveal came from sources that shared a termination letter written by CEO Dave Dohrmann. The letter claims that "banki...
