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"...

    Countdown Until E3 2014

    Just a small refresher on the schedule of E3 2014 events for Monday:
    • Microsoft - 12:00PM (ET)
    • EA - 3:00PM (ET)
    • Ubisoft - 6:00PM (ET)
    • Sony - 9:00PM (ET)

    As we did last year, you can find all of our E3 2014 coverage by using either the "E3" or "E3 2014" general tag searches here.

    I will try to keep each conference contained to specific tags as well if you want a more refined search. For those cases, I will try to make use of "Sony E3 2014", "Microsoft E3 2014", and "Nintendo E3 2014" when they hold their event on Tuesday. There will be no separate section for E3 news as we had toyed w...
