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"...

  • Sierra Rises from the Dead

    Sierra Rises from the Dead

    Sierra was a well known developer and publisher of games in the 80's, 90's, and up to the point it ceased to be in 2008. Well, it's back. At least, it might be back?

    The following video plays prior to showing a rather sparse page on a newly launched Sierra website.


    Back in 2008, Sierra's parent company Vivendi Universal merged with Activision to form Activision Blizzard. As a result, ownership of Sierra was transferred to Activision. Later that year, Sierra was closed down with hopes of simply being sold off.

    During its (former) lifetime, Sierra had a hand in games such as Leisure Suit...

  • Blue Estate Review (PS4)

    Blue Estate Review (PS4)

    Blue Estate is an on-rails shooter that utilizes the DualShock 4's gyroscope for aiming. The idea of using the gyroscope for aiming sounds promising enough. In theory, it should be a decent substitute for not being able to use light guns or PlayStation Move functionality. In theory, this type of game should be a lot of fun, especially for those who enjoy the arcade style on-rails shooters from days gone by. In theory a dark humor, grindhouse style of game should be amazing provided the writing is decent with just the right amount of cheese thrown in. In reality, Blue Estate is borderline terrible. Outside of a few witty one-liners, the dialogue falls flat. The attempts at cashing in on the grindhouse style just end up coming across as offensive, juvenile, and even mi...

  • Battlefield 4 is "Free" on Origin Until August 14

    Battlefield 4 is "Free" on Origin Until August 14

    Battlefield 4 is the latest game to receive the Origin Game Time treatment! For those of you who forgot from last time, Game Time is a way of giving a player time limited access to a game where the clock starts when you first start playing, provided you begin playing prior to August 14 at 10AM (PT).

    The amount of time for Battlefield 4? 168 hours of game time, or one full week. Or to put that another way, that's about half of my total play time in Battlefield 4, a game I've had since right around launch. Granted, I may suck, but that should give you a rough idea of just how many hours that really is.
