Valve Cracks Down on Using VPNs to Buy Games Cheaper

This should hopefully lead to more fair regional pricing.

For several years now, users were able to make use of a loophole that allowed them to buy games for cheaper if purchased from certain regions.

    Gone Home Heading to Unspecified Consoles

    Gone Home is slated to come out on "consoles." The latest blog entry from The Fullbright Company wasn't too specific on which consoles they meant, but I'm going to assume something with "Xbox" and/or "PlayStation" in the name. I know, call me crazy.

For some unknown reason, Respawn and EA have decided to include every localized language pack into one install. That means that no matter what language you speak, you will have every language included in your download and install of the game.

    This comes from a user on the Escapist forums. I do not have the game myself and cannot verify these claims but he did provide a couple of...
