A Total War Saga: TROY Announcement Trailer

The official announcement of a new Total War game is here.

In a shock to nobody, the leak that came out literally just yesterday has been proven to be true. Everybody pretend to be shocked! A reveal trailer is out today for A Total War Saga: TROY. I believe the only thing that was incorrect in the early leak was the order of the words in the game's title.

This new entry in the Total War franchise takes inspiration from Homer's Iliad. As such, you can expect there to be a big emphasis on the Trojan War and a big emphasis on time-appropriate features, roles, weapons, and...
 

Rockstar Now Has Their Own PC Games Launcher

Get GTA: San Andreas for free if you use it.

Rockstar now has their own game launcher on the PC. The development studio quietly released this new launcher a short time ago today. They are attempting to entice users to download and use the installer by giving away a free copy of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for a limited time.

Interesting enough, the Rockstar Games Launcher includes some features that took other launchers a little bit of time to add after release. This launcher includes cloud save support, a shop, and automatic updates. The prices on the store seem to...
 

Watch Almost an Hour of Death Stranding Gameplay

A lot of gameplay footage that may finally provide a lot of answers.

The marketing for the Kojima Productions game, Death Stranding, has left consumers with more questions than answers. It's a game from the mind of Hideo Kojima, so of course the marketing was going to be odd. The problem was, there are a lot of people that just have no idea about what the game was even about even after the numerous trailers.

Maybe sitting down and watching 50 minutes of gameplay will help clear up that confusion. If that doesn't work, then maybe a breakdown of the gameplay footage from...
 

Final Fantasy VII Remake Tokyo Game Show 2019 Trailer

The trailer is at the bottom after these boring words.

Square Enix showed off an all new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake this week at the Tokyo Game Show. The new trailer offers a fresh look at gameplay, the slums of Midgar, and a peak at the mini-games and summons. Midgar is home to the Shinra Electric Power Company. This kind of totally evil company is in conflict with Avalanche, a resistance group fighting to keep their planet alive. You will also get your first look at some of the Shinra operatives known as The Turks.

Square Enix also included their new artwork...
 

Cube World is Coming to Steam

Let me take you back to the year 2013...

In 2013, a little game called Cube World came out in an "alpha" release. It was a cute, stylized adventure-RPG that offered a ton of freedom, battles, exploration, and more. A big appeal of the alpha was being able to have all of these adventures with your friends in one world. To its credit, the limited content of the alpha was quite enjoyable but the promise of bigger and better was always just around the corner. The problem came when it was just never updated! Eventually the developer went dark.

We would sometimes...

    New Steam Library Beta is now Live

    A new beta brings a new look to your Steam library.

    Earlier this month, Valve announced that they were going to launch a complete overhaul to the Steam Library. Today, the first beta release of that drastic redesign has been released to the public mere moments ago. Those of you who are already in the beta release channel for the Steam client may have already gotten the update today. For everyone else, here is what you need to know.

    Valve has kindly set up a new page specifically to inform the public about this new Steam library update. At the very top you'll see a button...

    Steam Redesign Beta Begins September 17

    Get a first-hand look at the New Steam Library redesign in about two weeks.

    On September 17, Valve will open the doors to everyone that wants to check out the New Steam Library first-hand. This will be an opt-in beta that will allow anybody to test drive the new features before they're rolled out to everyone as part of a mandatory Steam client update.

    Valve went into detail about some of the major changes you'll notice in this new design. First off, is the obvious new look for your game library. You'll see game update information, recently played games, friend activity,...

  • The International 9 Once Again Breaks All the Records

    The International 9 Once Again Breaks All the Records

    Another year, another batch of broken esports records.

    Valve announced today that the ninth annual Dota 2 International Championships (The International 9) has smashed records? Which records? A lot of esports ones.

    First off, this marks the first back-to-back victory for any team in the history of The International. That's right, OG won it all this year just as they did in 2018. I'm sure a lot of fans had that spoiled for them thanks to a random email from Twitch. Good job on that one, Twitch.

    Also of note was the record breaking prize pool that hit over...

  • The 2019 International Main Event Begins

    The 2019 International Main Event Begins

    Over $33 million is up for grabs.

    Valve just passed along word that the Main Event festivities for The International Dota 2 Championships for 2019 have officially kicked off. This is all going down at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China.

    This is the ninth annual event and, once again, it has broken all sorts of records by having the biggest community-driven prize pool of over $33 million. First place is looking to get $15,276,981 once all is said and done. I think that amount can even go higher before the event ends, so that's kind of nuts.

    Even the...

  • Steam Workshop Items Need Approval from Valve

    Steam Workshop Items Need Approval from Valve

    But only for first-party titles from Valve.

    You may have already seen that news going around that items on the Steam Workshop must now be approved by Valve before they will appear for the public. This seems to include anything that you may typically find on the Steam Workshop, including custom maps, models, skins, sounds, and the like. This first showed up via a Reddit post on the Global Offensive subreddit.

    However, this approval process is not for every Workshop enabled game available on Steam. At least, not yet.

    Right now, this approval process is only...

  • Valve to Put an End to Abuse of 'Upcoming Releases' Section on Steam

    Valve to Put an End to Abuse of 'Upcoming Releases' Section on Steam

    Hopefully this puts a stop to studios that game the system to always appear on the first page of upcoming releases.

    If you ever tried to look at the "all upcoming releases" section on Steam, you probably noticed that a lot of games appearing on the first couple of pages didn't actually have set release dates. A lot of them would appear to be vague windows of time that would, for whatever reason, still show up before games that actually had set releases planned in the coming days.

    It was terrible browsing the all upcoming release section on Steam, leaving most...

  • Valve Apologizes for Leaking Street Fighter V Character Reveal Early

    Valve Apologizes for Leaking Street Fighter V Character Reveal Early

    Valve apologizes for an incident they call "regrettable and unintentional."

    Just this past Thursday, Capcom made the big reveal that E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison were coming to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. For some fans, this was completely new and exciting news to read. For others, this was just a confirmation of a leak that happened on Wednesday of this past week.

    The leak in question was an early release of the reveal trailer for the three upcoming characters. It wasn't meant to show up until this weekend's big EVO event. Many thought that someone at...

  • Full Index VR Kits Now Available Without a Reservation

    Full Index VR Kits Now Available Without a Reservation

    Other SKUs coming soon.

    Valve just put out a small announcement today saying that those looking to purchase the full Valve Index VR kit can do so right now without having to make a reservation. For the past month or so of release, the only way to actually purchase and obtain one of these kits was to make a reservation through Steam and wait patiently.

    Right now, Valve is only offering the full Index VR bundle without a reservation and only in the United States. They say that other SKUs for the States will be coming soon. This probably means that if you just want the...

    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....

  • Valve Kicks Off Spring Cleaning Event

    Valve Kicks Off Spring Cleaning Event

    Play some old games before you buy new ones?

    Given that we already seem to know when the Steam Summer Sale will go live, it just makes sense that you should play and finish some of your back catalog first. That seems to be what Valve was thinking when they kicked off their Spring Cleaning Event today. This event rewards you for playing old games that have been sitting in your library, games you haven't played yet, and even some new, free games they're offering for the duration of this event.

    The following games are freer to play while the event is live. I don't believe...
