  • Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

    Introducing Steam Labs - A Place to Test New Steam Features

    Launching today with three experiments.

    Valve has just launched a new area on Steam where users can test out new, experimental features for Steam. They're calling this area the Steam Labs and it is here where users will be able to test out potential new Steam features. These tests may one day become commonplace on Steam, but for now they are mere experiments ripe for testing and potential changes based on user feedback.

    If you ever used Gmail, you may already know what to expect from these Labs experiments. That is to say, there is no guarantee that they will be fully...

  • Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    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....

    I guess this is a thing now.

  • Valve Releases Stand-alone Steam Chat App for Mobile

    Valve Releases Stand-alone Steam Chat App for Mobile

    As Facebook has Messenger, Steam has Steam Chat.

    Valve just released the new Steam Chat application for both iOS and Android mobile devices. This is a new stand-alone app that allows you to have all of the features of Steam chat in a more lightweight application.

    If you're still confused, maybe this will make it a bit easier to understand. You know how there is the bloated Facebook app for mobile phones? And you know how Facebook has a private messaging system that they broke off into its own app called Messenger? Messenger allows you to chat to your Facebook friends...

  • 'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    'DOTA Underlords' Trademarked by Valve

    It's probably DOTA Auto Chess.

    Valve was given a new trademark this week. This trademark is for an upcoming "computer game" called DOTA Underlords. Literally nothing else is known about this title. There is speculation that it may be the name of Valve's standalone release of DOTA Auto Chess, but that's as much of a guess as anything else.

    For all we know, it could be a VR title, something to do with Artifact, or something completely unexpected....

    Valve Index VR Headset - Releases June 28 at $1,000 for the Full Package


    VR enthusiasts and VR hopefuls, I do hope you were sitting down when you read that headline. Valve announced the full details about their upcoming virtual reality headset that they're calling the Valve Index.

    The Index now has an official release date, a full list of specifications, and even a set of confirmed prices. There are also a list of games that have been updated to include support for the new Index controllers. It's an impressive bit of hardware, without a doubt, but it's one that comes at a hefty price.

    If you do not own any VR headset, or if you don't...

  • Valve Being Sued by Native American Nation Over Skins Gambling

    Valve Being Sued by Native American Nation Over Skins Gambling


    Native American Quinault Tribal Nation members have filed a lawsuit in the state of Washington against Valve over skins gambling. The group accuses Valve of participating in "unethical, oppressive, and unscrupulous business conduct."

    The plaintiffs own and operate the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino. They argue that Valve has engaged in unfair competition with legally licensed gambling operations. Valve does not have a license to conduct gambling operations. The lawsuit argues that because Valve does not have a gambling license they are illegally facilitating gambling through the trade of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skins ...

  • European Commission Demands Valve to Stop Geo-blocking Games in EU, Valve Issues Response


    Early this morning, the European Commission (EC) issued an official "statements of objections" today towards Valve, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Focus Home, Koch Media, and ZeniMax. The EC claims that all of these companies are involved in anti-trust violations by placing geographic restrictions (geo-blocking/geo-locking) on the games that they sell.

    The EC says that these companies have geo-blocked Steam activation keys for games sold throughout Eastern Europe. Some of these places include Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and some cases in...

  • Vertigo Sucks a Little Less After Today's CS:GO Update

    Vertigo Sucks a Little Less After Today's CS:GO Update

    Valve just rolled out a fresh update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive this evening that makes some adjustments to three maps. These maps are none other than Vertigo, Nuke, and Abbey. The biggest changes tonight hit Vertigo and Abbey, with Nuke receiving only little bitty fix.

    As always, the update will be automatically applied via Steam....

    Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch


    For the longest time, if you wanted a refund from Sony for a purchase made through the PlayStation Store, you were either completely out of luck or were maybe given a one time exception. There were a few other times where Sony cracked open that refund door another inch, such as when games were severely broken to the point of crashing systems, but these were made once in a blue moon. Even then it wasn't a guarantee that you would be issued a refund if you requested one.

    Yesterday, Sony pushed out a slightly less draconian refund policy for purchases made from the PlayStation...

  • Valve Embraces Dota 2 Gambling

    Valve Embraces Dota 2 Gambling


    There is no denying that Dota 2 is an esports juggernaut. As the game enters into its sixth year this Summer, the popular "multiplayer online battle arena" (MOBA) shows no signs of slowing down. Last year, the annual Dota 2 tournament, The International, offered the biggest esports payout of any single video game tournament. In fact, The International occupies the top five positions on the top esports earnings list.

    This means that with the rise of Dota 2 esports comes the rise of the Dota 2 betting site. If there is a competition or a tournament for something, rest...

  • Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

    Valve Finally Shows Off New Steam UI Overhaul

    An update to the Steam user interface and library has been in the works at Valve for years now. Today, the company finally feels comfortable enough to show off their Steam UI overhaul and did just that during a presentation at GDC 2019. I'd like to first thank Game Informer and PC Gamer (and again) for a lot of the information and screenshots you'll see below.

    Library
    First up, let's talk about the changes coming to how your Library will look and function with this new update. The Friends list is now integrated into a column on the right side. No idea if this is an optional...

  • Half-Life 3 Again Teased by Potentially Fake Email from Valve's Gabe Newell

    Half-Life 3 Again Teased by Potentially Fake Email from Valve's Gabe Newell


    It is *checks non-existent watch* now three months into 2019, which means it's about that time again for another Half-Life 3 rumor. This one comes directly from Valve's Gabe Newell himself!

    Well, maybe.

    Honestly, it's probably fake but I know what pulls people in to the site and this is certainly going to do it for a little bit.

    All of this begins with the latest video from "Valve News Network (VNN)," a YouTube channel that never, ever, ever (heavily implied sarcasm here) exaggerates or simply pulls things out of their ass. Get them clicks!...

  • Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores

    Valve Will Now Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' from Steam User Scores


    Valve has had a major problem these past few years with user submitted reviews. One of the biggest issues with user reviews, be they on Steam or anywhere, is when a push is made by a community to review bomb a game or other form of media. These usually result in a ton of negative reviews in a short span of time for a product because of some perceived slight by a studio concerning a game.

    Steam displays user scores in a couple of ways. They show the average of the most recent scores given to a title and the average of all of the reviews from the start. So while the short-term...

  • Security Researchers Find '39 Percent' of Counter-Strike 1.6 Servers Used to Spread Malware


    This week, security researchers from Russia's Dr.Web (PDF), filed a report saying that roughly 39% of Counter-Strike 1.6 servers were used to spread malware to users. The report, filed on Monday, found that these malicious servers exploited a remote code execution (RCE) flaw in the game client to spread a new malware variant called Belonard.

    These servers were nothing more than proxy servers set up to display low pings, enticing players to try to connect to them. When players connected to those servers, they were redirected to the malicious servers that had one of four different...
