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.

  • Castlevania Series Coming to Netflix in 2017

    Castlevania Series Coming to Netflix in 2017

    Netflix held a special event today where it announced a lot of its upcoming content throughout 2017. As part of its announcement came word that they will play host to a new Castlevania series.
    Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017

    That is literally all that was said about the new series. It's speculated that the series is the same that was said to be in the works by Frederator Networks (Adventure Time) and Adi Shankar, the person behind the fan-made, gritty take on the Power Rangers. If you haven't yet seen it, I embedded it below because it's a fantastic piece of media.

  • Tim Sweeney Continues Hyperbolic, Baseless Attack on Windows 10

    Tim Sweeney Continues Hyperbolic, Baseless Attack on Windows 10

    Tim Sweeney was once known for his role in co-founding Epic Games. Epic Games, as we all know, created some of the world's most recognized titles in franchises such as Unreal Tournament and Gears of War. They have also created one of the world's most widely used game engines, Unreal Engine. These days, Sweeney is more keen on throwing out a bunch of outlandish claims against the Windows 10 operating system and against Microsoft.

    About a year ago, Sweeney first started his attacks on Windows 10 by saying that it was a walled garden for everybody but Microsoft. He felt that 10's UWP access would lead to the removal of Win32 apps entirely. Win32 apps being those programs that you've used for literally decades now. They're pretty much every program...

  • Blizzard Testing Server Browser in New Overwatch PTR Update

    Blizzard Testing Server Browser in New Overwatch PTR Update

    Blizzard has gone ahead and added in a server browser as part of the latest PTR update for Overwatch. This addition allows you to customize a huge number of variables and play the game with your friends, those you invite, or even with the general public.

    This PTR update also includes the Capture the Flag game mode, first introduced in the ongoing Capture the Rooster event in the non-PTR release of Overwatch. This update also includes the start of the re-balancing of Bastion, a change to Eichenwalde, and plenty of other changes/balancing.

    The current list of changes can be found here. The PTR is optional and will probably have a number of changes between now and the public release of the next major patch....

  • Final Fantasy XV Somehow Broke Even on Launch Day

    Final Fantasy XV Somehow Broke Even on Launch Day

    Square Enix must be pretty happy with how fans responded to the release of Final Fantasy XV. First they said that just two days after launch the game had already sold more than 5 million units. Now, they're telling us that the game broke even on development costs on its launch day.

    Director Hajime Tabata told DualShockers this rather impressive factoid. Since then, Square Enix said that the game has announced that the game has shipped over six million units as of January. By now? Who knows but it's probably a safe assumption that it's been turning a profit for Square Enix. It's remarkable that Final Fantasy XV ...

  • Steam Profiles Are Once Again Safe to Visit

    Steam Profiles Are Once Again Safe to Visit

    Earlier today, a warning came by telling users not to visit any Steam profile or even their own Activity Feed within Steam. This was actually a major security issue with how the "My Guides Showcase" parsed scripts that were placed within the title of guides.

    This allowed for code to be injected into anybody that put these malicious guides into their Showcase. This then made visiting affected profiles a security risk along with the Activity Feed that displayed these guides that friends added to their own Showcases.

    Valve has since fixed this exploit. An explanation of how the code worked was provided on Reddit.
