Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...
 

G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...

  • Germany Lifts Seven Year Ban on Fallout 3

    Germany Lifts Seven Year Ban on Fallout 3

    Germany, being Germany, banned Fallout 3 in 2009 due to its violent content. A censored version was eventually released there but as the Internet will make damn sure it tells you: censorship sucks. Why lift the ban now? Because Bethesda wasn't going to put up with that crap and "initiated a difficult and rarely-successful trial" with the Federal Department for Media Harmful to Minors.

    They won.
    "In the case of Fallout 3, the request for delisting was granted even though only seven years passed since the game was banned," a BPJM member said in a statement. "The Big Council decided at its meeting on 4 February that
