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.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

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"...

  • Digimon Cyber Sleuth Package Coming to PC

    Digimon Cyber Sleuth Package Coming to PC

    Should have called it Detective Digimon.

    Did you know that Digimon are digital monsters? Did you know that Digimon are the champions? It's true, the late 90s told me and I believe the 90s. Apparently, Digimon are also experts when it comes to being detectives of a sort. That's probably why they are the star of a new game that is full of mysteries and apparently turn-based battles.

    The game is called Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition and it offers up a combination of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory. It's all included...

    Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC Hinted in Social Club Source Code

    Another day, another hint.

    If you wanted yet another hint that Rockstar is probably going to bring Red Dead Redemption 2 to the PC, well, you got it. It seems as though a PC release of the game is more a matter of "when" and less a matter of "if" at this point.

    Twitter user JakoMako51 passed along a little discovery earlier today. When browsing through the source code on the Rockstar Social Club, they noticed a new listing for PC "Accomplishments" for Red Dead Redemption 2. Accomplishments in this case are probably the equivalent to the...

    Battlefield V Chapter 4 Hotfix 1.1 Update Addresses Poor Hit Registration

    Invisibility bug still remains.

    DICE will release a hotfix patch for Battlefield V Chapter 4 tomorrow. This comes roughly a week after a fairly disastrous update introduced a number of game breaking bugs to the game.

    While this update may not fix all of the top issues introduced in that last patch, it does tackle a few of them. It must be stated that today's update does not address the issue of invisible character models. This issue, introduced in the last update, is still going to come up until they figure out a fix.

    However, this update does address the...

    Then quickly announces this will happen again.

    If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
