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.

    Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass Detailed - $50, 20 New Maps, and More

    EA detailed their Season Pass today for Star Wars Battlefront. As you can probably expect from EA and DICE, it's very similar in what it offers to say Battlefield Premium. The gist of it is that it includes 20 new maps, over 20 new weapons, over 10 new vehicles, new game modes, and new gadgets over the weeks and months following the base game's release.

    Star Wars Battlefront Beta Extended Until Tuesday

    Originally, the beta for Star Wars Battlefront was set to end tomorrow. Instead, the beta has been extended until Tuesday (October 13). They want to test some extreme server cases in that extra time. So, you now have a couple of additional days to go play test.

    You should probably go do that if you haven't already....

    Gary Oldman, Mark Hamil, and More Headline Star Citizen's Story Mode Cast

    As part of the CitizenCon 2015 event, a new trailer was released for Star Citizen's Squadron 42 single player campaign. The trailer, seen below, features a virtual Gary Oldman giving a powerful speech in front of an audience.

    Also filling out the cast are Wing Commander alum Mark Hamil and John Rhys-Davies. The Wing Commander franchise was a well received series of space combat simulation games that Robert Space Industries' Chris Roberts was a game designer for along with being a creative director.


    If you don't want to (or can't) watch the full credits at the end of the video, you can see the list of actors below that are set to have a role in Squadron 42.

  • PS4 Owners - Download the Dark Souls 3 Stress Test Today

    PS4 Owners - Download the Dark Souls 3 Stress Test Today

    Right now, PlayStation 4 owners can download the Dark Souls III stress test client. The servers don't appear to be up right now, but you should probably get the client downloaded for when the servers do go live. I am assuming that this test will take place this weekend only.
    This is the DARK SOULS III Network Stress Test. Our intent for the network testing is to have players play and test a portion of the game prior to its official release. By carrying out large scope network stress testing, we hope to better prepare for the game's online system functionality. Our aim is for improved game play experiences based on this test, and the part taking of th

  • Jessica Curry Offers a Sad Farewell to The Chinese Room in this Insightful Read

    Jessica Curry is the co-founder of The Chinese Room. In addition to helping found the studio that created Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, she also served as the studio's lead composer. Today, she announced that she's (sort of) leaving The Chinese Room. The announcement comes alongside some other insightful remarks that range from negative experiences working with a major publisher, how the industry thinks less of women and their ideas, and much more. Curry says that while she will remain on as a director for The Chinese Room and will probably keep composing music for the studio, she feels as though she needs to branch out a bit. She even mentions how she already has a "large-scale music project" lined up...

    Valve 'Accidentally' Pushed a File hl3.txt in a Recent Dota 2 Update

    Half-Life 3 still totally isn't a thing. It totally doesn't exist and Valve is totally not working on it. This file, called hl3.txt, that was just pushed in a recent Dota 2 update just doesn't exist.

    It's not real.
