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.

  • Better in VR: New Just Cause 3 Panoramic Trailer Offers 360 Degrees of Insanity

    A new trailer for Just Cause 3 was released a short time ago today, but this isn't any old, normal trailer here. Oh no, it's a 360-degree panoramic trailer that is best experienced by using something like a smartphone. Bonus points if you watch this using a VR headset like Google Cardboard or Gear VR. Sure, you can drag the view a round with your mouse but where's the fun in that?
    The video begins with Rico wing-walking on a plane and taking out the massive vertigo-inducing base named Vigilator Nord before wingsuiting to the giant naval base of Porto Le Gratia to kick start a rocket fueled explosion-fest. If the YouTube video whets your appeti

    Harmonix Admits to Amazon Reviews of Rock Band 4

    Yesterday, the Internet discovered that various Harmonix employees were leaving reviews for Rock Band 4 over on Amazon. That is a rather big "no-no" when it comes to ethical practices from businesses.

    Today, Harmonix admitted that yes, they have indeed been reviewing their own product. Statements have been made both by the company, Harmonix, and by one of the reviewers in question, Matthew Nordhaus.
    "Harmonix has clarified its internal policy about posting reviews of our own products on retail sites, and we've asked that existing reviews be edited to identify Harmonix employees or be removed entirely. While we

  • PlayStation Store Now Includes Wishlists

    PlayStation Store Now Includes Wishlists

    The PlayStation Store, at least the web browser version of it, now allows you to make wishlists. You can quickly add a game or other media piece to your wishlist by clicking on a heart icon next to the price listing. It is then added to your wishlist that only you and your friends, or you alone, can see.


    Could this be a step on the road to gifting through the PlayStation Store? It seems entirely plausible, especially how the privacy settings are defaulted to allowing your friends to view your wishlist items....

  • Harmonix Employees Might be Leaving 5-Star Amazon Reviews for Rock Band 4

    Harmonix Employees Might be Leaving 5-Star Amazon Reviews for Rock Band 4

    Allegedly, some Harmonix employees are leaving 5-star reviews on Amazon for Rock Band 4. Reddit, as they tend to be, were on the case.
    Harmonix employees seem to have taken to Amazon to post their own favorable reviews of the game. At first I thought it was a rogue employee or two but then I dug around for about a half hour and found 7 of them and so it appears to be more of an initiative. I'm sure there's more than that.


    Some of the names in the reviews do match the names of employees that are at Harmonix. These names include Chris Foster, Nick Murdy, and Matthew Nordhaus. Usually, the unethic...
