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...

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"...

    Fear the Wolves Improves New Player Experience with New 'Unified' Update


    Today, the "Unified Update" was released for the battle royale style game Fear the Wolves. This update for the Early Access title aims to improve the new player experience.

    You'll Only Have One Chance to Play the Resident Evil 2 Demo


    Capcom announced a limited time "1-Shot Demo" for Resident Evil 2. This demo will be made available January 11 through January 31. During this time, interested players will be able to download and play this demo on the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    And now, the catch. It's not called the "1-Shot Demo" without reason. Capcom has decided to give players just one 30 minutes to survive the demo. If you die before the 30 minutes are up, you can attempt to go again with whatever time you have left. If you beat the demo within 30 minutes, you can play again...

    On February 12, those on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android will get to play a digital version of the strategy board game called Evolution. Evolution is being adapted to a digital world courtesy of North Star Digital Studios. I don't play board games, so I'll let the press release do most of the work on this one.

  • Soldier: 76 Confirmed to Be Gay in Latest Overwatch Short Story

    Soldier: 76 Confirmed to Be Gay in Latest Overwatch Short Story


    Blizzard released a new short story for Overwatch today entitled Bastet. The latest story delivers heaping helpings of lore for those of you who are into that sort of thing.

    Among the big reveals in Bastest are little snippets in the lives of the Overwatch fighters from days long gone. For instance, we find out how Ana lost her eye. We learn that Reinhardt is not very good at stealth. And perhaps the biggest news, at least for those who make all of the rule 34 drawings, is the fact that Soldier: 76 is gay.

    The reveal came about as Ana catches Soldier: 76 going...

  • Photo Mode Announced for Metro Exodus

    Photo Mode Announced for Metro Exodus


    Deep Silver and 4A Games announced today that Metro Exodus will include a Photo Mode. It will be included at the game's release, which just happens to be February 15.



    Though the Photo Mode is included on all platforms (PS4, XB1, & PC), PC players will also get Ansel support. To add, PC players will also get the benefit of that lovely RTX tech to really make their screenshots stand out.

    I'm also seeing that this is the first of a week of "daily announcements" for Metro Exodus. It will be very interesting to see what the rest of the week...
