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....

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.

  • Dell's Black Friday Deal Includes $300 Xbox One Bundle with Fallout 4, Gears of War, and More

    Well ahead of the usual Black Friday (typically the day after Thanksgiving in the United States) sales, comes a look at what Dell is going to offer. Included is a really great deal on an Xbox One bundle that includes a 500GB Xbox One console, a copy of Fallout 4, an extra controller, a download voucher for Gears of War, a 3.5mm headset, "and more." All of this is yours for just $300 (USD) if you can manage to snag a bundle. That's a savings of $170 if you should buy each of those items separately. Chances are that the bundle is going to sell out within seconds of going live, so I hope you have a super fast connec...

    Ubisoft Opens a Not-so-Exclusive Rewards Club

    Ubisoft unveiled their Ubisoft Club idea today. It's essentially a rewards program that will grant players access to "extra in-game content" and beta access for a variety of Ubisoft titles. I could sit here and tell you about what all is included, but I'll let the little stick figures that are doing questionable things around the world tell you exactly what Ubisoft Club is all about.


    Seriously, I'm a little creeped out by what went on from 0:18-0:21 in that above video....
