  • 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...

    System Shock 3 GDC Teaser


    As part of the Unity keynote at GDC 2019, a new teaser trailer for System Shock 3 was shown off. I suppose that also confirms that System Shock 3 is being built on Unity. I think that was already known prior to this? Perhaps not.

    The game is currently in development from OtherSide Entertainment. A release date for the horror title is not yet known. ...

    Nvidia Announces Real-time Ray Tracing for Older GTX Cards


    Nvidia just announced today that they are bringing real-time ray tracing to their GTX lineup of cards. This support will begin with a driver update currently slated for some time in April.

    Get ready to have your framerates destroyed. Think about it this way: Nvidia's RTX cards have special hardware that is dedicated to handling the load of real-time ray tracing. Even with this special hardware, enabling real-time ray tracing still destroys framerates on these new cards.

    Now they're going to add support for it on to their older cards? It will certainly make your...

    Logo for Google's Gaming Thing Revealed at GDC


    We still don't fully know yet what gaming related thing Google is going to reveal this week at GDC 2019. However, we do know a couple of things.

    First, we know that Google is going to reveal whatever this thing is at 10AM (PT) on Wednesday. We also know that they have display cases ready to go that will house some sort of hardware. Or maybe they're being cheeky and they're already showing off something in those cases. Maybe it's a cloud. Really makes you think...

    Finally, we also got a look at the logo for this Google gaming thing. Special thanks to John Voor...

    Google Teases Their New Gaming Console in GDC 2019 Promo Video


    It's no secret that Google has been working on a gaming console. They've had a patent filed since late 2018 showing off the potential design for the new console's controller. It's kind of the typical console controller design that most of us have already come to know and probably love.

    It's currently unclear as to what Google has planned for this device. Multiple sources have said that it will be a console that focuses on streaming. However, some rumors have suggested that the hardware included will make it more powerful than an Xbox One X. And while a lot of great hardware...

    GDC 2018: Microsoft Announces DirectX Raytracing

    Though the adoption of dedicated DirectX 12 games is near non-existent, that hasn't stopped companies like Microsoft from adding in new features and APIs. The latest announcement came today in the form of a new API dedicated to facilitating the creation of real-time ray tracing.

    This is a fairly simplified explanation from Wikipedia.
    Optical ray tracing describes a method for producing visual images constructed in 3D computer graphics environments, with more photorealism than either ray casting or scanline rendering techniques. It works by tracing a path from an imaginary eye through each pixel in a virtual screen, and calculating the color of the object visible through it. Scenes in ray tracing are described mathematica
