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.

  • CS:GO Dust 2 Getting a Makeover Soon

    CS:GO Dust 2 Getting a Makeover Soon

    The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive developer Twitter just sent out word (two hours ago) that Dust 2 is getting a lovely makeover soon.

    The tweet states that the updated version of the map will be released for testing via the next beta depot for CS:GO. While I'll try to keep an eye out for it, chances are the diehard fans out there will know about it long before I ever get news up about it anyway.

    From the looks of the included image, Valve seems to be returning to the old school 4:3 aspect ratio for this update. Exciting!

  • Review: BetaNOX Ultimate Energy Drink (Berry Lemon Blast and Citrus Blast)

    Review: BetaNOX Ultimate Energy Drink (Berry Lemon Blast and Citrus Blast)

    How do I play this?

    I like energy drinks. I started to get a SoBe Citrus Energy every so often back in college. On a whim I then tried a SoBe No Fear. Hey, I liked it! So then I bought more of them. At the time, I did not drink coffee, and I tried to stay away from soft drinks while I had classes during the day. From there I branched out, trying to discover myself broaden my horizons to see what other energy drinks I may enjoy. I found out that Red Bull was "okay" but a bit too overpriced. Monster tasted like liquid chalk and, surprisingly, I quickly find out I don't much care for the taste of chalk. It didn't help that Monster left a nasty aftertaste in my mouth for far too long. Five Hour Energy also left a weird aftertaste in my mouth and I actually found it difficult to drink even the small bottle of the larg...

  • Pete Hines Disturbed that "Wolfenstein Can be Seen as a Controversial Political Statement"

    Last night, the Wolfenstein II Twitter account would be so brazen as to say "Make America Nazi-Free Again" in a tweet that included a short, new trailer along with the hashtag of #NoMoreNazis. A bunch of Nazis and Nazi sympathizers took offense to the tweet, claiming that they are being attacked by the Wolfenstein II marketing. They feel as though Bethesda and Machine Games are making games, specifically Wolfenstein II, too political. Imagine, Wolfenstein, a franchise that has been around for over 30 years that, from the start, has been all about killing Nazis is now, in 2017, considered to be "too political." Yes, it's too political to be against Nazis. You know, the group that wants to commit genocide because they believe that everybody that isn't white is consider...

  • PSA: Star Wars Battlefront II Beta is Available for Everyone

    PSA: Star Wars Battlefront II Beta is Available for Everyone

    Earlier today, EA and DICE quietly opened up the beta for Star Wars Battlefront II. Over the past couple of days, the beta was "closed" to the point that only those who pre-ordered the game prior to October 1 were able to participate. Today, everyone can play.

    To save you a bit of time, PC users can head to the demos and betas section of Origin to quickly add the "Star Wars Battlefront II Multiplayer Beta" to their account. It will then prompt you to launch Origin if you have it installed and it should download the game automatically. That's pretty much it. Don't worry console owners, there are also some handy links f...

    Epic Promises to Combat Fortnite Battle Royale Cheating

    Cheating in Fortnite Battle Royale seems to be a problem. At least, that's what I hear from people on the Internet. Specifically, that's what Epic Games is telling us since it's not like I go around talking to people about Fortnite Battle Royale.

    But yeah, cheaters! They suck. Epic knows this. Fortnite community person, Nathan Mooney, explains what's going to happen with Fortnite Battle Royale anti-cheat.

    HITMAN Team Announces Upcoming Announcement (Not Season 2)

    It's like everyone these days is just trying to ape a page from my playbook, I swear. In the latest "announcement of an announcement" series, Io-Interactive announced that they will have something to announce later this month for HITMAN.

    Sadly, their pre-announcement announcement says that what they're announcing isn't "Season 2" for HITMAN. Cue the sad music now.
