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.

  • Atari is Going to Reboot Alone in the Dark Franchise Yet Again

    Atari is Going to Reboot Alone in the Dark Franchise Yet Again

    Back in 2008, Atari published Alone in the Dark, a reboot of their popular horror franchise. It did not really fair too well with reviewers or fans and the reboot never really took off.

    Fast-forward to 2014 and Atari is again announcing they are going to reboot the franchise... again.

    Next weekend at PAX, Atari will officially announce revivals for two classic franchises. One is obviously for Alone in the Dark and the other is for Haunted House, a game last seen on the Xbox Live Arcade in 2010. The website for Alone in the Dark notes that the game is called Alone in the Dark: Illumination and that it will...

    Sony to Hold Pre-TGS 2014 Press Conference on September 1

    There really isn't too much more to announce here other than what was already said in the topic. Sony will once again hold a pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference days ahead of the actual show.

    This year the press conference will take place on September 1 at 2AM (ET; August 31 at 11PM PT). Last year, the conference talked about PlayStation/Vita TV, Guilty Gear, Yakuza, and a handful of other games. Hopefully this year's show is a bit more impressive.

    Tokyo Game Show 2014 itself actually doesn't even kick off until September 18. It will run through to the 21st....
