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.

  • Batman: Arkham Origins Developers Say They Will Not Work on Fixing Game Breaking Bugs, Focusing Instead on DLC

    You can't make this up. Alright, you could make it up but nobody would believe a developer was this ballsy, right? It seems as though Warner Bros. Montreal is making it clear that the company has NO plans to release a patch to address many reported bugs and are instead focusing their development efforts on DLC.

    As in, that is what they literally said to upset consumers.
    The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums. If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progres

  • Sledgehammer Games to Develop 2014 Call of Duty Release as Development Cycle Switches to Three Years

    Previously, the development roles on the Call of Duty franchise alternated between Infinity Ward and Treyarch. Now, Activision has announced that Sledgehammer Games is coming in as a third developer for the series.

    This will move the two year development cycle to a three year development cycle for each studio. Sledgehammer is already to finish up development on the 2014 installment of the series.

  • Sega Finally Calling a Game 'Sonic Boom'

    Sega Finally Calling a Game 'Sonic Boom'

    This trailer for Sonic Boom has it all. Sonic. Knuckles. Tails. That pink haired friend of theirs. Rose? Is it Rose? I'm pretty sure it's Rose. It has voice acting. It's got a scene from Dune. It's also got dubstep.

    Alright, let's watch it!


    Whoa, Knuckles, what did they do to you?! At least the graphical design on some of the environments looks like a step in the right direction. Hey, this has to be better than Sonic '06, right? There's no way this can be worse than that.

    This game will be exclusive to the Nintendo Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS....
