Review: Persona 5 Royal

A master class in improving upon what is already great.

In September 2016, the original release of Persona 5 made its debut in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It eventually had its Western market debut in April 2017. The game was developed by P-Studio and published in North America by Atlus. Despite a few minor issues, it was largely regarded as a fantastic JRPG with excellent art, an intriguing cast of characters, enjoyable gameplay, and even a rad soundtrack. Persona...
 

PlayStation 5 System Specs Revealed

We finally have the full next-gen picture.

As Sony's Mark Cerny wraps up his promised PlayStation 5 deep dive, the specs and other details for the PlayStation 5 have been released. So far, we know that the PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 titles. Cerny seems to have stopped short of saying it will be backwards compatible with other generations, which is unfortunate.

We also learned today that Sony is putting a lot of effort into their...

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...
 

E3 2020 Cancelled as Covid-19 Declared Global Pandemic

Wait, am I out of a job now?

Earlier today, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus (Covid-19) a pandemic. Think of a pandemic as an epidemic that has a much greater reach. Epidemics could be considered to be localized to just a few places in the world. Pandemics signify that there is a global impact. For a while, Covid-19 was still considered an epidemic because it was largely contained to areas of China and mostly to those that travel. As the virus continues...

    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

    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

    👀

    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...

    On Site Attendance Forbidden at IEM Katowice Due to Coronavirus Fears

    Viewing is limited to online only.

    While the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) Katowice event is still to continue as scheduled, nobody will be allowed to watch the action in person. This almost literal eleventh hour change of plans came directly from an order issued by Polish authorities. This is all being done as a precautionary measure against the coronavirus (COVID-19).

    In short: Find something else to do with your time. Those running the event say that they are currently...

  • 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.
