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.

  • Gabe Newell Responds to Terrible Dota 2 Shanghai Major - Calls James Harding an Ass, Fires Production Company

    Apparently, the Dota 2 Shanghai Major is kind of a shitshow. There are apparently problems with players getting the appropriate hardware, there are problems with being unable to watch the matches, and the list goes on.

    It apparently got so bad that Gabe Newell took to the Dota 2 subreddit to reveal that someone named James is an ass and that they're firing the production company.
    Two things: 1) James. We've had issues with James at previous events. Some Valve people lobbied to bring him back for Shanghai, feeling that he deserved another chance. That was a mistake. James is an ass, and we won't be working with him again. 2) As long as we're firing people,

    The Church in the Darkness Examines the Cult Movements of the 70s

    Richard Rouse III (The Suffering, State of Decay) unveiled his new game today, The Church in the Darkness. The Church in the Darkness takes a look at the real-life cult movements of the 1970s. The game features the voice talents of Ellen McLain (GLaDOS) and John Patrick Lowrie (Sniper in Team Fortress 2). The two will voice the cult leaders in the game and both are also helping to compose the game's soundtrack.
    No one is forced to join a cult. It welcomes you. It understands you. It envelops you until the words become more than truth―they make you whole. Persecuted for their radical beliefs, Rebecca and Isaac Walker lead their people into the jungles of

  • Rumor: Battlefield 5 Retail Listing Suggests WWI Setting

    Rumor: Battlefield 5 Retail Listing Suggests WWI Setting

    A retail listing for Battlefield 5 popped up at a Swiss online retailer, World of Games. The description for the game mentions an October 26 release date and a description that points to the game being a "multiplayer tactical shooter in WWI."

    The listing at the retailer still exists, however the description has been removed to simply say that it is a "multiplayer tactical shooter."

    A Twitter user, Doctor_Cupcakes, seems to be the person that first discovered the initial listing. The original image with the old description can be found below.

    Necropolis Release Pushed to Summer, Console Versions Announced

    Bandai Namco announced that there will be PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Necropolis coming alongside the PC release. Unfortunately, this good news comes with a bit of bad as the PC release was delayed until Summer. That means that all three versions of the game will be out at the same time this Summer.

    Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6 Coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

    Capcom just revealed that Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5, and Resident Evil 6 are coming out on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Strangely enough, they're starting with Resident Evil 6 on March 29, then releasing 5 this Summer, and then finally 4 will come later this year in the Fall. I suppose ending with your best foot forward is a good idea here.

    Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon Leaked

    Just a day ahead of a special Pokemon Direct put on by Nintendo comes a leak that may have ever so slightly undermined what was slated to be revealed. Trademarks filed with the European Market show two new entries from Nintendo that were filed today.

    These trademarks are for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. In fact, they both are accompanied by a logo. You can still see both entries at the OAMI website.

    These entries seem to have been first reported by NerdLeaks.

  • Valve Details Lighting and Shader Improvements to Source Following Recent CS:GO Update

    Valve just detailed some of the lighting and shader improvements made to the Source Engine that were added during the Operation Wildfire and de_nuke update that was released last week.

    These visual upgrades will allow for community map makers to really make their creations look as good as possible. An overview of some of these numerous changes are detailed in this Counter-Strike.net posting.

    There are updates and improvements to displacement surface lighting and shadows, cascade shadow maps, normal map blending, anisotropic reflection emulation, and tons more. An example of just one of the improvements can be seen below.
