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.

    Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Lets You Golf at Night

    EA Sports released a new trailer this week that shows how you can have fun at night in Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. Specifically, a number of "Night Club Challenge" modes will be included with the game.

  • Planet Coaster By Former RollerCoaster Tycoon Developers is the Spiritual Sequel You Wanted

    Back in the day, a studio called Frontier Developments worked on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. Since then they went on to work on a number of titles including Screamride for the Xbox and now Planet Coaster for the PC. This is perhaps everyone's best bet when it comes to a spiritual successor to RCT3, because there are probably no other developers more qualified to give that to you than the people who actually made RCT3.

    There are a bunch of pre-order options for you to take a look at. Pre-order prices start around $30 (USD).


    Planet Coaster is the next evolution in coaster park simulation games from the team behind the

    Let Todd Howard Show You Everything You Wanted to Know About Fallout 4

    Fallout 4 is a little game that Bethesda has been working on for a while now. I guess they're really hopeful it's going to take off and become popular because they dedicated over a half hour of their E3 2015 show to it! Yes, there is a ton of gameplay footage included in the below video.

    You will see character creation, you will see story, you will see dialogue options, you will hear Troy Baker, you will see shooting, you will see base building, you will see tower defense, and just tons more. Huh. This Fallout 4 might just be the next big thing!

    LEGO Dimensions' Portal Trailer is About as Awesome as You Would Think
