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.

  • Valve and Khronos Announce Vulkan a 3D Graphics API Formerly Known as Next Generation OpenGL

    Earlier today, Valve and the Khronos Group announced Vulkan, a new cross-vendor 3D graphics API that used to be known as Next Generation OpenGL. That's right, OpenGL is making a comeback.
    Also as part of supporting PC gaming, Valve announced that it will be releasing a Vulkan-compatible version of the Source 2 engine. Vulkan is a cross-platform, cross-vendor 3D graphics API that allows game developers to get the most out of the latest graphics hardware, and ensures hardware developers that there is a consistent, low overhead method of taking advantage of products. Vulkan, previously called Next Generation OpenGL, is administered by

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Release Date Set for September 1

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Release Date Set for September 1

    Looks like IGN leaked the big Metal Gear Solid V reveal about a day ahead of time. Bad news for them, but good news for us because it has now been revealed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have a worldwide release on September 1, 2015.


    That image came from a video that has since been pulled from IGN. Unless there is something more that will be revealed tomorrow, it looks like the cat is out of the bag. It's amazing that the release date has been kept secret this entire time and IGN managed to screw it up just one day before it was officially going to be announced....

    A Look at Five Nights at Freddy's 3


    (sigh...) Yes, it's Five Nights at Freddy's 3. Sure, the first game in the series only came out 6-7 months ago, but maybe this game has some revolutionary new gameplay ideas? Or maybe it has options, any options, options like changing the resolution easily in game? Oh, it has none of those? Alright then.

    If you don't care about any of that, you can get Five Nights at Freddy's 3 on Steam for $7.99 (USD).
    Thirty years after Freddy Fazbear's Pizza closed it's doors, the events that took place there have become nothing more than a rumor and a childhood memory, but the owners of "Fazbear's Fright: The Horror Attraction"

    Let's Play Resident Evil: Revelations 2 - Part 3

    After having the video mysteriously disappear in the middle of uploading it last night, I finally got around to getting part 3 up. It only took having to re-edit, re-encode, and re-upload but it's here.

    Welcome to the third part of the first episode for Resident Evil: Revelations 2. As with all blind let's plays, I will keep quiet during cutscenes and read out loud any documents acquired. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is an episodic game. This is Episode 1: Penal Colony. There will be a new episode released each week through to the end of March. You can pick up Resident Evil: Revelations 2 on PS4, PS3, XB1, 360
