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.

    New to Halo 5: Guardians are Spartan Companies. This seems to be a bit like a "clan" or a "guild" common in numerous other games. These Spartan Companies provide access to private discussion forums, customized emblems, customization card packs for meeting certain player counts, and much more.

  • Hideo Kojima Has Officially Left Konami

    Hideo Kojima Has Officially Left Konami

    According to The New Yorker, Hideo Kojima said his final good-byes to Konami on October 9. Anonymous sources said that the popular developer had a farewell party that day with Kojima Productions. Kojima has at least a few months of mandatory R&R as he is under a non-compete until December.

    This is the final note for Kojima's career with Konami after months of conflict. The first signs of trouble surfaced back in March of this year when it was rumored that Kojima was expected to leave Konami after Metal Gear Solid V was released. What we didn't know then, that we know now, is that this was seemingly part of Konami's new efforts...

    PSA: Some EA Accounts May Have Been Compromised

    A Pastebin that reportedly contained various EA Origin accounts was spread online yesterday. According to CSO Online, the file reportedly contains information for "hundreds" of compromised Origin accounts including usernames and passwords. That's the bad news here. The good news is that it seems to be contained only to users who have accounts beginning with the letters A through F. Of course, that could just mean that whomever stole this information are holding onto the remaining G-Z accounts for a rainy day. Sam Houston, Origin's former Community Manager suggested that the data dump was created after an intentional hack into EA's databases. ...
