  • Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

    Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

    Budget that bandwidth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Everyone is at home. If not, they probably should be. 2020 has been crazy wild and it's still only March. One of the things people have been doing more of, is playing games. What else is there to do when you're under quarantine? Work? HA! Screw that!

    The problem with being at home all the time like this, is that the network in your home, country, or even globally can be impacted significantly. People have more time now...

  • Mike Shapiro, Voice of Half-Life's G-Man, Seems to be Teasing Something

    Mike Shapiro, Voice of Half-Life's G-Man, Seems to be Teasing Something

    Shapiro hints that his next project is a "blast from the past."

    Though Valve has just released Half-Life: Alyx, it wasn't exactly the Half-Life game many fans of the series wanted. Sure, it's an absolutely fantastic game but it's not exactly Half-Life 3, you know? Though it took Valve almost 13 years to get any sort of a new Half-Life game released after Half-Life 2: Episode Two, there may actually be something else coming sooner than you may think.

    One day after...

  • Valve Fully Expects Someone Will Mod VR Out of Half-Life: Alyx

    Valve Fully Expects Someone Will Mod VR Out of Half-Life: Alyx

    The question is: What will be lost in translation?

    Half-Life: Alyx was just released and with it has come a heap of praise from those with VR headsets along with a heap of complaints from those who are against the mere idea of virtual reality. If you are expecting Valve to release a official version of the game that strips out the VR aspect, you are most certainly barking up the wrong tree. Half-Life: Alyx was built around VR, not the other way around. To release a version of the game...

    Half-Life: Alyx is Now Available

    A new Half-Life game is actually here!

    Wow, who could have seen this coming? We finally have a new Half-Life game being released! Valve has just flipped the switch for every VR owner on Steam and Half-Life: Alyx is now released. It's the first Half-Life game released in 13 years. Let that sink in for a little while as Alyx decrypts in the background.

    Half-Life: Alyx is available now on Steam for $59.99 (USD). I'm going to do something I don't normally do during the day:...

  • Gabe Newell Talks Epic Games Store, Dislikes the 'Apple Model' of Business

    Gabe Newell Talks Epic Games Store, Dislikes the 'Apple Model' of Business

    👀

    Valve's Gabe Newell hasn't said too much about the new digital retailer on the market, otherwise known as the Epic Games Store. In an upcoming interview with Edge magazine's Alex Spencer (issue 334), Newell opened up about a number of hot button subjects such as Half-Life: Alyx, the future of VR, and how he views "competition" from the Epic Games Store.

    Spencer asked Newell whether or not the competition from the Epic Games Store has affected Valve's own approach...

  • Steam and CS:GO Break Concurrent User Records Yet Again

    Steam and CS:GO Break Concurrent User Records Yet Again

    Actually, they broke records twice this weekend.

    It seems like Valve isn't a fan of vinyl because they've been busy breaking records left and right this past month. In early February, we brought you word about how Counter-Strike: Global Offensive broke its old concurrent player record twice in the same weekend. Once the dust settled on the whirlwind weekend of February 8-9, 2020, the top number saw over 901,000 concurrent players enjoying CS:GO at one time. This had beaten a record...

    Valve Experimenting with New Steam News Hub

    This the the 9th Steam Labs Experiment.

If they prove to be a success among testers, Valve will graduate these experiments to the big time and make them a new feature for everyone on Steam to enjoy.

    The latest experiment kicked off today. Steam Labs Experiment 009: The News Hub is now available....

  • Valve is Seeking Out a New City for The International Dota 2 Championships in 2021

    Do you run a city? Inquire within.

    Valve is already on the hunt for cities that want to host the 11th Annual International Dota 2 Championships, or "The International" for short. The International will be held in the Summer of 2021. The first event was held in Cologne, Germany in the far off time of August 2011. Though already exceptionally popular right from the get-go, The International has only grown in scale in each of the following years.

    The International...

    Another Steam Labs test makes it to the big time.

    There is another Steam Labs success story to share with you all today. Experiment 004, simply entitled "Search," is now a part of normal Steam functionality. This experiment added a host of features to the existing Search function on Steam, which thus led to better and more relevant results to individuals that used it.

    Today's new search features include the ability to narrow results by price and special offers....

  • Underlords: Season One Begins

    Underlords: Season One Begins

    Dota Underlords leaves Early Access.

    Valve just freed Dota Underlords from its Early Access limbo today. Today's release also marks the beginning of Season One for the game. The launch also includes "a ton of content to explore, rewards to earn, a hero/Alliance/item shakeup and more." Let's see a bit more about what today's release means for Dota Underlords.

    Let's start with the fact that Dota Underlords is a free to play game. Yes, there are optional purchases...

  • Official Half-Life: Alyx Release Date Announced

    Official Half-Life: Alyx Release Date Announced

    Valve has announced a solid release date.

    Ever since Valve announced Half-Life: Alyx back in November 2019, they maintained that the game would be out at some point in March 2020. That fairly vague release window did not sway over the past four months now, which was either very reassuring that Valve Time wouldn't kick in, or anxiety inducing because you just wanted the delay announcement to come. OH GOD JUST GET IT OVER WITH ALREADY!

    Thankfully, that delay announcement...

  • Over 40,000 Accounts Banned from DOTA 2

    Over 40,000 Accounts Banned from DOTA 2

    Bans served to accounts found abusing matchmaking.

    On Tuesday, February 11, the official DOTA 2 Twitter account revealed that Valve banned over 40,000 accounts from the popular MOBA. The studio says that the bans were handed out to accounts that were "found abusing matchmaking."

    Details on what this means were not shared publicly. However, it could be inferred by what was meant by "abusing matchmaking." This could be anything from buying accounts that...

  • Counter-Strike Broke Peak Player Records Twice this Weekend

    Counter-Strike Broke Peak Player Records Twice this Weekend

    CS:GO surges as DOTA 2 flounders.

    This past weekend was a real banner couple of days for Counter-Strike players and fans. Not only did Counter-Strike: Global Offensive surpass its all-time concurrent player count, but it did so twice!

    On Saturday, CS:GO had surpassed 888,000 people playing the game at once. This all-time high bested a near 7-year long record. The old all-time high came on August 21, 2012 when CS:GO had topped out at over 854,000 players.

    That's...

  • More New Releases Found More Success on Steam in 2019 Compared to 2018

    More New Releases Found More Success on Steam in 2019 Compared to 2018

    2019 was another big year for the PC platform.

    Steam has been around for quite some time now. In fact, 2020 marks Steam's 17th anniversary come September. 17 years is a long time for anything. If you didn't know any better, you might be sitting there right now thinking that after all this time Steam could not be improved or iterated on in any capacity. At best, all that happened was that a bunch of new games were added and they called it a year. Right?

    That is where you...
