System Shock and Skatebird Among Over a Dozen Games with New Limited Time Demos

In honor of The Game Awards, about a dozen games released limited time demos on Steam.

Later tonight, The Game Awards will be streamed live. That all kicks off at 8:30PM (ET) and can be watched online at places like Twitch, Steam, Mixer, Twitter, YouTube, consoles, other websites, and even at select movie theaters.

We already knew that.

What we didn't know until just a short time ago is that Geoff Keighley has also organized a special bonus treat for everyone. Today, he announced The Game Festival. The Game Festival, going live right...
 

MLB The Show is No Longer a PlayStation Exclusive

Soon, MLB The Show will be available on more than just Sony's platforms.

It has just been announced that starting as soon as 2021's release, MLB The Show will no longer be a PlayStation platform exclusive. Though other platforms have not yet been specified, both the official Nintendo and Xbox Twitter accounts were quick to comment on this new development.

For the past dozen or so years, MLB The Show has been developed by San Diego Studio, a subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment. Sony has also had the exclusive rights to develop and publish...
 

New 2K Studio Confirmed to be Working on Next BioShock Game

The first project for the new Cloud Chamber is the next entry in the BioShock series.

2K just announced today that they have opened up a new game development studio under their publishing umbrella. The new studio is called Cloud Chamber and will have not one but two different locations for their operations. The team will operate both out of 2K's San Francisco Bay Area HQ in Novato, CA in addition to a new location in Montreal, Quebec. This marks the first Canadian office for 2K.

The other big surprise today is the fact that Cloud Chamber has...
 

DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...
 

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

  • Gabe Newell Responds to Terrible Dota 2 Shanghai Major - Calls James Harding an Ass, Fires Production Company

    Apparently, the Dota 2 Shanghai Major is kind of a shitshow. There are apparently problems with players getting the appropriate hardware, there are problems with being unable to watch the matches, and the list goes on.

    It apparently got so bad that Gabe Newell took to the Dota 2 subreddit to reveal that someone named James is an ass and that they're firing the production company.
    Two things: 1) James. We've had issues with James at previous events. Some Valve people lobbied to bring him back for Shanghai, feeling that he deserved another cha

    Valve Increases Every CS:GO Major to $1 Million Prize Pool

    Valve is starting to show the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene a bit more love. Starting with MLG Columbus 2016, every CS:GO Major Championship will have a prize pool of $1 million.
    When we announced the first CS:GO Major Championship in 2013, we hoped the Majors would be rallying points for the community, tent-pole events that could draw new audiences and amplify the value of all events. Since then, the professional CS:GO community has been growing at an incredible rate. CS:GO tournaments are now among the largest esports events in t

    SteamVR Performance Test is Live

    Valve has just made live their SteamVR Performance Test to assess if your PC is ready for our virtual reality future.
    The SteamVR Performance Test measures your system's rendering power using a 2-minute sequence from Valves Aperture Robot Repair VR demo. After collecting the data it determines whether your system is capable of running VR content at 90fps and whether VR content can tune the visual fidelity up to the recommended level. For machines that are not VR Ready the tool can help determine whether capabilities are bound by Graphics Card, CPU, or b

  • PSA: Source Engine Security Warning, Loophole Spoofs SteamIDs Grants File Write Permissions on Client Machines

    There is a post on the Steam section of Reddit by a user that claims he discovered a severe security loophole with Source Engine games. Specifically, it's a problem with multiplayer games running on Source, including games like Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Garry's Mod, Dota 2, and more. The user claims that he found a way to not only spoof Steam IDs, but he also found a way that would allow malicious server admins to "(write) files on every client." To put it bluntly if this is true, it could be quite harmful if used by the wrong types...

    Adrian Shephard is Back - Prospekt Released on Steam

    One man has brought back Adrian Shephard after his previous outing in Half-Life: Opposing Force.

    For $9.99 (USD), you get a stand-alone experience that is roughly the length of Half-Life 2: Episode One. You do not need to have Half-Life 2 or any other Source title installed...
