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.

  • Japan Getting Limited Edition FOX Edition PlayStation 4 Bundle with Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

    Japan gets all the cool stuff. This time it's a special FOX branded PlayStation 4 bundle that also includes Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

    It includes a specially branded hard drive cover for the PS4, the console itself, and Ground Zeroes. It'll go for 46,980 yen, which is about $461 (USD).

    If you're in the market for a Japanese PS4, head on over to the Sony store to find out how to order yours today. Konami could also be extra awesome and perhaps release those covers separately here in the States since they're easy enough to remove and replace. I'm just sayin'......

  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Runs at 1080p on PlayStation 4, 720p on Xbox One

    The fans begged for it and Hideo Kojima and his team at Konami are delivering on the request to show visual differences between the various versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This includes a comparison of the current gen systems with the last gen systems.

    It also includes a chart showing the resolution and framerate differences between every version of the game. Let's just get it out of the way right now and show the comparison chart between each version.

    Every version, with the exception of the PS4 version, will output 720p. The Xbox One is a native 720p resolution while the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are upscaled to 720p. The PS4 will run at 1080p na...

  • Target Offering Free $50 Gift Cards with Xbox One Purchase

    Target Offering Free $50 Gift Cards with Xbox One Purchase

    If you head to your local Target retailer, you may be able to snag an Xbox One with a free $50 Target gift card. This offer may be available across all stores, but you may want to check your local retailer just to be sure. Some speculate that this is an indication that a price reduction is coming soon for the Xbox One. Others feel that this is merely Target trying to move some units. A similar situation happened with the Wii U last year, with a general price reduction following suit after retailers offered limited sale prices on the console. This offer runs from now until February 22. (via ...

  • Kickstarter Hacked - Some User Information Stolen

    Kickstarter Hacked - Some User Information Stolen

    Kickstarter, the go-to site for crowd-funding a variety of projects, has been hacked. The notice comes from the Kickstarter site and makes it clear that no credit card data was accessed. However, other information such as usernames, email addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords were stolen. They are also quick to point out that no actual passwords were revealed but it is possible, as is always the case in situations like this, that the encryption can be cracked. It's strongly suggested that you change your password at the Kickstarter website and at any site or service where you may have used the sa...

  • Bored? Join Up with Over 24,000 Others on Twitch to Play Pokemon

    Bored? Join Up with Over 24,000 Others on Twitch to Play Pokemon

    Let's face it, the Twitch chat is known for being horrible. Yet, someone had the great idea to use that horribleness as inputs for a bot to play Pokemon live to the people that are trying to control the game.

    The idea is simple. You watch the stream (also embedded below) at the TwitchPlaysPokemon Twitch channel. You join the chat. You say a command like "up" or "down" and the bot takes each of those commands and actually inputs them into the game. Right now, there are over 24,000 people watching and participating in this. Yes, it's just as much of a terrible and awesome idea as it sounds. To put things into pers...

    PSA: Save 50% Off of Next Origin Purchase

    The Valentine's Day sales just keep on coming. This time Origin is offering 50% off of your next Origin Store purchase until February 17 at 10AM (PST).

    All you have to do is use the promo code "LOVE" (without the quotations) when checking out.

    Unfortunately, there are a few exceptions to this. The code will not work on pre-orders, games that came out in the past 30 days, select partner titles, virtual currency purchases, game time codes, Battlefield 4 Premium, Star Wars: The Old Republic, or Xbox One and PS4 titles.

    That still leaves a lot of games available for you to save on.
