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"...

  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Review (PS4)

    Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Review (PS4)

    First, the zombies came for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Next, they came for the PC. Now, they've set their sights on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Yes, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has finally been released on the PS4.

    If you had told me even just a few months ago that one of my favorite multiplayer games would involve plants and zombies fighting each other, I'd have called you crazy. If you had told me at the same time that the game in question would be a third-person shooter based off of the popular tower defense title Plants vs. Zombies I would have had you committed. Now here we are at the start of September 2014 and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is quickly becoming one of my favorite shooters. It's bright, it's stylized, and it is a ton of fun. Maybe it's because of the innocuous nature of the game but it's one of the few competitive...
