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.

  • Crytek Lays Off Employees from Austin Offices

    Crytek Lays Off Employees from Austin Offices

    Following the sale of Crytek UK and the Homefront IP to Deep Silver, Crytek revealed some major restructuring throughout a few of their other studios. Hardest hit are the remains of Crytek UK and Crytek Austin.

    Crytek UK might not be that doomed as Deep Silver is looking to acquire staff for their new studio, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. The good news here is that most of those that were at Crytek UK are making the move to the Deep Silver studio to continue work on Homefront: The Revolution. The actual number of people making the move has not yet been revealed, however. Sadly, Crytek Austin has laid off most of its development team. The ...

  • Sony Doesn't Feel EA Access Provides a "Good Value to the PlayStation Gamer"

    Sony Doesn't Feel EA Access Provides a "Good Value to the PlayStation Gamer"

    "Why is EA Access only on the Xbox platform," seems to be the question of the week for many gamers. If nothing else, surely it would also be on the PlayStation platform as well, right?

    Unfortunately, Sony feels as though EA's subscription based service doesn't add a "good value" for PlayStation gamers out there. A Sony representative provided the following statement to Game Informer.
    "We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect. PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation

  • Deep Silver Buys Homefront IP from Crytek

    Deep Silver Buys Homefront IP from Crytek

    In a move that should help Crytek out financially for the short term, they have sold the Homefront IP to Koch Media, the parent company of Deep Silver. This sale will see Crytek UK turn into Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. It should also hopefully mean that those still left at the former Crytek UK will finally start to get paid again.

    Koch has stated that development on Homefront: The Revolution will continue at Deep Silver Dambuster Studios. Hasit Zala had left Crytek UK a few weeks ago as the former Director of the game, is heading up the new Deep Silver studio that will be working on Homefront. The full press release on ...

  • Here are the Free Games for August on PlayStation Plus

    Here are the Free Games for August on PlayStation Plus

    Sony just revealed the free games coming to PlayStation Plus subscribers for August 2014.

    PlayStation 4
    Road Not Taken (PS4)
    Fez (PS4, PS3, PS Vita)

    PlayStation 3
    Crysis 3 (PS3)
    Proteus (PS3, PS Vita)

    PlayStation Vita
    Metrico (PS Vita)
    Dragon's Crown (PS Vita, PS3)

    Games marked with additional platforms should be cross-buy applicable. That means if you get Fez on one platform, you get it for the other two. The same should apply to Proteus, and Dragon's Crown. Europeans get pretty much the same list of games as above with one notable exception. Instead of Dragon's Crown on the Vita...

    Over 4.6 Million Gamers Played the Destiny Beta

    Activision and Bungie should be thrilled at these numbers. They revealed that over 4.6 million people played the beta for Destiny. They are claiming that it's the biggest beta of this console generation by a wide margin and the "largest console beta ever for a new video game IP to date."

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Multiplayer Reveal on August 11

    On August 11 at 10AM (PT), the multiplayer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be revealed to the world.


    You will be able to watch at the Call of Duty website. The event will (I assume from this wording) be presented live from gamescom 2014. It will also (I am again assuming based on the above image) be presented through Xbox Live since Activision and Microsoft are fairly cozy when it comes to this series.

  • Unreal Tournament Team Deathmatch Footage

    Unreal Tournament Team Deathmatch Footage

    You can check out some very early gameplay footage from the new Unreal Tournament. The two videos below show off some gameplay in unfinished and untextured maps. The first one is a more of a "behind the scenes" sort of view with the action starting around the 1 minute mark. The second video looks like direct gameplay capture from Beyond Unreal but at a resolution most of you haven't seen for years.

    GameStop to Roll Out a Credit Card with a 26.99% Interest Rate

    New Campaign Story Trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

    With nations brought to their knees by a global terrorist attack, the world turns to Atlas, the largest private military company on the planet. Power, though, changes everything.

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is actually looking pretty good there. I don't want to get my hopes up too high because I'm inevitably always burned hard on these games when they're actually released....
