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.

  • Launch Trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

    Launch Trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

    It's a launch trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. I'm not really sure what more you need to know.


    It sports better visuals than the previous version, including the PC. It features much higher resolution textures, better character models, better animation, TressFX for the hair, physics on more items and objects, but it runs at 30FPS on the Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 version is said to hit 60FPS far more often than the Xbox One version does....

  • Amazing Pre-Alpha Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    Amazing Pre-Alpha Walkthrough of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

    I don't recall having heard anything about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor before today. Suddenly, this walkthrough video came out and just blew my mind and made this game from relative unknown to "I want this right this second!"


    The game is an open-world action RPG set in the Lord of the Rings universe. You assume the role of Talion, a ranger with Wraith powers. The big draw here is the "Nemesis System" which lets the player interact with various characters and adjusts how those characters behave, as highlighted in the video.

    As far as the timeline goes, it takes place between the events of The...

    Ten Additional Verified Jobs Added to GTA Online

    Rockstar just approved and verified ten more jobs for GTA Online today. These include new Rockstar Verified jobs from the community and items created for their special #CreatorWeekend contest on the Rockstar Social Club.
    ROCKSTAR VERIFIED
    Twists and Twirls
    A complex but beautifully constructed point-to-point through some of Blaine County's iconic countryside. Follow the winding roads of Vinewood Hills as you race from Galileo Observatory through to Tongva Valley. Car selection from the Sports class is key here - steer clear of the Comet's twitchy back end or risk a fishtail festival. Tight turns and unforgiving cliff edges require deft use of the brake pedal, but don't be afraid to go for broke when the opportunity arises.

  • Blizzard Suing Chinese Developer of Hearthstone Clone

    Blizzard Suing Chinese Developer of Hearthstone Clone

    A $1.65 million lawsuit is underway from Blizzard against Unico Interactive for allegedly making a clone of Hearthstone. Unico's game is called Legend of Crouching Dragon, and Blizzard says elements from that game infringes on their rights.


    Blizzard, and their Chinese licensing partner, NetEase, point out clear similarities in the layout, interface, and the visual style of both games. Legend of Crouching Dragon has been in a beta stage for several months while Hearthstone just went to a free open beta yesterday. Legend of Crouching Dragon is out for iOS and Android devices while Hearthstone will not have a ...

  • EA Also Caught Paying for Positive YouTube Comments from Creators

    EA Also Caught Paying for Positive YouTube Comments from Creators

    If you thought that Microsoft were the only ones paying for positive comments from YouTube content creators, think again.

    EA has their own program, called "Ronku" that promised some creators $10 CPM ($10 for every 1,000 views) up to a total of $200,000 for a full 20 million view Battlefield 4 promotional campaign. These images surfaced on NeoGAF yesterday.




    As you can see, the promotions outlined in the above images focus on "Cross the Line" moments in Need for Speed Rivals and Battlefield 4. However, previous promotions also seem to have included games such as FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, NHL 14, and Plants vs. Zombies 2. Additional stipulations said that footage could only ...
