Discord Distances Itself from Gaming

Discord is now your place to talk.

Discord was built upon the idea of bringing gamers of all types together. It's certainly a big factor that prompted my friends and I to make the move to Discord from TeamSpeak and Ventrilo however long ago it's been now. We were a group of friends that played a lot of games together. We didn't like the quality of the service we were paying monthly for from the alternatives and decided to give Discord a try. We never looked back.

Cyberpunk 2077 New Trailer Revealed - 'The Gig'

A new trailer showcasing new footage, characters, and story.

Today, CD Projekt Red lifted the lid on a whole lot of new media and impressions for Cyberpunk 2077. A number of outlets have shared their first-hand experiences with a vertical slice of the game based on being able to play it for the past week or two now. Lucky SOBs, I'll tell you what. This all came together today in the release of those impressions to the web alongside a brand new official trailer from CD Projekt Red themselves....
 

Mixer is Shutting Down

Microsoft is pulling the plug on their streaming platform.

On July 22, Microsoft will officially close down their streaming service, Mixer, for good. The plan is to instead move all of its existing partners over to Facebook Gaming. This rather sudden announcement means that Mixer partners and streamers will be moving to Facebook Gaming beginning today.

According to The Verge, Microsoft "has struggled to reach the scale needed to Mixer to compete with Twitch, YouTube,...
 

Review: Disintegration

A terribly underwhelming take on the sci-fi FPS genre.

Disintegration, the debut title from V1 Interactive, places players in the shoes of Romer Shoal. Shoal was a former celebrity robot turned outlaw that leads a group of other current outlaws to take down the evil Rayonne. This is done through a lot of vehicle focused combat and some great character designs, but a terrible story with some surprisingly shallow gameplay. Though the game aims to become a real genre defining moment for...
 

Review: Maneater

A fun, albeit shallow, gameplay experience.

Maneater is one of those titles that is just the right amount of dumb fun. It pushes the dumb just far enough that you are not overly concerned with its obvious shortcomings. I suppose that any game that places you in the fins of a growing, angry as hell bull shark that can mutate and grow. These mutations provide your shark with gain special abilities is not a game that would ever take itself too seriously.

Maneater is a game...

  • Steam No Longer Counts Review Scores from People Who Didn't Pay

    Steam No Longer Counts Review Scores from People Who Didn't Pay

    Have you received a game for free on Steam? Did you then review that game? If so, your review score no longer counts towards the game's overall score on Steam. Valve pushed out this rather substantial change to the Steam Customer Review system yesterday as a follow-up to changes they made back in September.
    With the changes we are making now, the review score (shown at the top of store pages and in various places throughout the store such as search results) will no longer include

  • CS:GO Player Uses Exploit to Spam Chat and Avoid Kicks

    CS:GO Player Uses Exploit to Spam Chat and Avoid Kicks

    Reddit has made the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community aware of a player (or players) that has been going around to servers, spamming chat, and avoiding being kicked.

    The user is on some sort of crusade to make Valve aware of cheaters in CS:GO by going about it in one of the most ass-backwards ways possible. All that Valve has done so far is provide a small solution to mitigate the exploit that the user is making use of. In the longer term Valve is "working on a solution"...

  • People Are Losing Their Minds Over Steam Direct Pricing That Hasn't Even Been Announced Yet

    People are absolutely losing their minds over a $5,000 fee that was merely mentioned in Valve's new blog posting about Steam Direct. Oh yeah, Valve announced Steam Direct today. Steam Direct is slated to completely replace Steam Greenlight. That's the good news!

    The bad news is that people are more focusing more on one particular aspect of today's announcement: Pricing. See, Valve asked developers how much they would be willing to pay to get their game added to Steam Direct....

  • Valve Working on Three "Full" VR Games

    Valve Working on Three "Full" VR Games

    Valve still wants people to know that they make video games. In a recent media round table event at Valve's Bellevue HQ, Gabe Newell stated that their studio is working on three full virtual reality titles.
    "Right now we're building three VR games."

    There you go, that's all the news.

    Naw, just kidding. He did say a bit more about these projects but not much more.
    "When I say we're building three games, we're building three full games, not experiments.(...)

  • Steam Profiles Are Once Again Safe to Visit

    Steam Profiles Are Once Again Safe to Visit

    Earlier today, a warning came by telling users not to visit any Steam profile or even their own Activity Feed within Steam. This was actually a major security issue with how the "My Guides Showcase" parsed scripts that were placed within the title of guides. This allowed for code to be injected into anybody that put these malicious guides into their Showcase. This then made visiting affected profiles a security risk along with the Activity Feed that displayed these guides that friends adde...
