Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

Library
First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...
 

The Outer Worlds, Remedy's Control, Detroit: Become Human, and More Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusives


As part of today's GDC presentation, Epic Games announced a number of timed exclusives that are coming first to the Epic Games Store. Among these games are The Outer Worlds, Control from Remedy Entertainment, and even some PlayStation 4 exclusives like Detroit: Become Human from Quantic Dream.

Some of these titles, such as The Outer Worlds, will also appear on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. I guess this just lends more confirmation that Epic is less about purchasing exclusives and more about simply paying companies to keep their games off of Steam. Consumers should not...
 

System Shock 3 GDC Teaser


As part of the Unity keynote at GDC 2019, a new teaser trailer for System Shock 3 was shown off. I suppose that also confirms that System Shock 3 is being built on Unity. I think that was already known prior to this? Perhaps not.

The game is currently in development from OtherSide Entertainment. A release date for the horror title is not yet known. ...
 

Nvidia Announces Real-time Ray Tracing for Older GTX Cards


Nvidia just announced today that they are bringing real-time ray tracing to their GTX lineup of cards. This support will begin with a driver update currently slated for some time in April.

Get ready to have your framerates destroyed. Think about it this way: Nvidia's RTX cards have special hardware that is dedicated to handling the load of real-time ray tracing. Even with this special hardware, enabling real-time ray tracing still destroys framerates on these new cards.

Now they're going to add support for it on to their older cards? It will certainly make your...
 

Epic Games Launcher Allegedly Scrapes Local Steam Data Prior to Granting Consent, Epic Responds

Earlier today, Reddit user PhoenixPoint and ResetEra member Madjoki found out that the Epic Games Launcher may be collecting your Steam history at startup. As part of their investigation, they found that at startup, the Epic Games Launcher searches your local computer for a Steam install. If it finds that Steam is installed, it then apparently proceeds to pull a list of files typically stored in your Steam Cloud. This data includes game saves for all users that have logged in to Steam on your computer.

Madjoki also found that it pulls a list of your Steam friends and their name history....

    Dragon Ball FighterZ to Feature SSGSS Goku and Vegeta

    Bandai Namco just revealed that Dragon Ball FighterZ will include Super Saiyan Gold Super Saiyan (SSGSS) form of Goku and Vegeta. Really? You simply double up on the "Super Saiyan" for the form? That's incredibly unoriginal and frankly, it's just a bit lazy.

    Anyway, here's a Super trailer of the Super Saiyan Gold Super Saiyan Super Gold Saiyan Super Gold Super Saiyan Gold form. The game will be out for the PC, PS4, and XB1 in early 2018. SSGSS Goku and Vegeta are an early unlock for those who pre-order the game.

    Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder Now Available on Steam and PS4

    If you like playing with big balls that roll down hills, you may be happy to hear that Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder is now available via Steam and the PlayStation 4. The Xbox One? Well, it gets the game tomorrow.
    This part Tower Defense, part Racing, part Art History lesson, and all-smashing game from ACE Team is the rocks to the wall sequel to 2011's deliciously off-beat Rock of Ages. In the game, players navigate artistic worlds, taking turns in defensive and offensive roles in an attempt to bash open the enemy's castle and stomp them into a historical footnote. In Bigger & Boulder, Atlas (no relation), the Greek Titan that's tasked with the eternally dreary job of holding up the sky, has literally dropped the

  • Review: Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    Review: Yakuza Kiwami (PS4)

    Do It For Her.

    Yakuza Kiwami is an updated remake of the original Yakuza title, a game that was originally released back in 2006 in North America for the PlayStation 2. Right out of the gate, Kiwami can and should be considered more than just a simple remake. It feels more like an extension of the fantastic Yakuza 0 that came to North America earlier this year and less like a game that came out nearly ten years ago. Yakuza Kiwami delivers updated assets, visuals, and even completely redone Japanese voice work. Sorry, there are no English dubs here, which is for the best. The amount of work that went into bringing Yakuza Kiwami from the PlayStation 2 to the PlayStation 4 is nothing short of extraordinary. The story throughout Yakuza Kiwami may not flow as elegantly as Yakuza 0 but it still does a tremendous job of conveying themes of betrayal, trust, and family throughout its 15+ hou...
