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.

  • Epic Patching Out GameSpy from Unreal Tournament 3

    Epic Patching Out GameSpy from Unreal Tournament 3

    Epic Games has pushed out an update for Unreal Tournament 3 that shifts the game off of using GameSpy to using another master server. If you have the Steam version the patch should be coming soon and be automatically updated as games on Steam tend to be.

    If you own the game but not on Steam, here is what you should do.
    The patch will be more of a replacement UT3.exe than a patch in the traditional sense and once it's time to patch you will be able to download as a .zip file. We will merely be replacing the original UT3 executable in the binaries folder with the new one that will point you to the new master server rather than the Gamespy server. Just a matter of unzipping it and dropping it in place. For example, I use Windows 7 64 bit so I navigate

    Call of Duty: Ghosts Invasion DLC Details and Trailer

    Some new information and a new trailer for the Invasion DLC coming for Call of Duty: Ghosts was revealed today. Let's take a quick gander at that.


    Invasion is slated to launch on the Xbox One (I bet you're shocked) on June 3. It will come to other platforms in July. It will include four new multiplayer maps with a few bells and whistles. It will also include part 3 of its Extinction mode entitled Awakening. The fourth and final part to Extinction will presumably arrive in the DLC release after Invasion.

  • PlayStation Plus to Offer 2 Titles per Month per Platform Starting in June - Two on PS4, Two on PS3, Two on PS Vita

    Beginning as soon as next month, which is only a few days away now, Sony will begin to offer two PlayStation Plus titles per platform. That means every month, PlayStation Plus subscribers will get up to six free games, two on the PlayStation 4, two on the PlayStation 3, and two on the PS Vita.
