Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

Launching today with three experiments.

Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...
 

Nintendo Lite Announced - $200 Handheld Device Coming in September

Cheaper, smaller, colorful.

Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite today. Priced at $199 (USD), this new iteration of the Switch hardware will be released on September 20, 2019. It will come in three different colors (Grey, Yellow, and Turquoise) at launch. A carrying case and a screen protector is also going to be available at launch for the Switch Lite.

Compared to its older brother, the Switch Lite will be a portable only device. You will not be able to dock the Switch Lite to a TV as you can with the regular Switch. In addition, the Switch Lite does not have...
 

Facebook Reportedly Bringing Splinter Cell Back... as a VR Game

Who wished on a monkey's paw?!

There is a story circulating today saying that Facebook may have already signed deals with Ubisoft to bring back Splinter Cell and a new Assassin's Creed title. That's not the weird part. The weird part here is that the deal is to create VR games in these two popular franchises. And since it's Facebook that pushed the deal, that would mean that the games would be Oculus "exclusive" and sold through their Oculus Store.

This is, at least right now, merely a rumor. It came to light today via The Information (full article is locked...
 

G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...
 

Earth Defense Force 5 Coming to PC this Week

EDF! EDF! EDF!

The fifth mainline installment in the man vs. bugs saga known as Earth Defense Force was announced to be coming to the PC. Not only that, but Earth Defense Force 5 is coming to the PC this week on Thursday, July 11. That's a mere three days away from today! You can presently add it to your Wishlist on Steam if you want.

As usual, you will play as a member of the Earth Defense Force (EDF) as they battle giant ants, massive spiders, and all sorts of creepy crawlies. At your disposal will be a huge arsenal of weapons, vehicles, mechs, and customizable class...

  • Op-Ed: The PC Release of Mortal Kombat X Seems Silly and Dumb

    Op-Ed: The PC Release of Mortal Kombat X Seems Silly and Dumb

    To put it mildly, the PC release of Mortal Kombat X seems to be a bit of a clusterfuck. I "preloaded" the game last night and was surprised to see that it was only a bit over 3GB in size. "Huh, that's weird," I thought. I shrugged it off and instead proceeded to play the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V instead. Now, despite there being a few minor issues (unless you had certain 9xx series Nvidia cards), the PC launch of GTAV went really, really smoothly. This is especially in comparison to whatever the hell is going on with the Mortal Kombat X launch. See, someone either at NetherRealm, WBIE, or High voltage Software (the studio that handled the "port" of the game to the PC), decided it ...

  • Mortal Kombat X Includes Microtransactions to Allow for Easier Fatalities

    Mortal Kombat X Includes Microtransactions to Allow for Easier Fatalities

    In a move that is right up there with selling horse armor, Netherrealm and WBIE have decided to include some less than savory optional microtransactions in Mortal Kombat X. Those who have purchased the game on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may have already discovered that you can pay to have the ability to more easily pull off Fatalities.

    That's right, pay even more money (on top of the price of the game and optional Season Pass) just to earn the the ability off Fatalities more easily.

    Twitter user @samred snagged a photo of this and shared his less than joyful thoughts on it.

  • Destiny: House of Wolves Will Not Feature a New Raid

    Destiny: House of Wolves Will Not Feature a New Raid

    Despite the raids being one of the major pulls for players to constantly return to Destiny, Bungie has revealed today that the House of Wolves expansion will not feature a new raid.

    Instead, the company will offer a 3-player battle arena mode called "Prison of Elders." That's right, Bungie is not going to offer one of their strongest game features (raids) and is replacing it instead with something that either sounds like another PvP mode or, dare I say it, a horde based mode. Yup. Good call on that one!
    House of Wolves will not have a Raid activity. We didn't make this decision lightly. Our team has

  • Activision Teasing a new Game, It's Probably Guitar Hero

    Activision Teasing a new Game, It's Probably Guitar Hero

    Activision released a new teaser trailer today. It features a band, guitars, musical instruments, and all things associated with a rock concert. So unless they're bringing back a weirdly re-imagined Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon, this is probably a teaser for a new Guitar Hero game.


    I mean, a new Rock Band was already announced, so why shouldn't they also jump back onto the bandwagon? Though some sources say they've actually been working on this since 2013. Who's ready to see a genre die out twice! Check back tomorrow for the big, mysterious reveal....

  • Rockstar Editor is a Robust Video Editor Included with Grand Theft Auto V on PC

    Remember how Grand Theft Auto IV on PC included the ability to splice together the previous few minutes of gameplay into a video that you could share with the world? It was a nifty feature, even if it was a bit limited in scope. Rockstar has decided to take that idea a step further in Grand Theft Auto V with the Rockstar Editor and a new Director Mode.
