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...

    Valve Updates Dota Plus with Special Summer Update

    Back in March, Valve announced and released Dota Plus, a subscription service that they called an "evolution of the Majors Battle Pass." It featured a bunch of perks not available to non-subscribers but things kind of fell quiet for a number of months.

    Today, that silence was broken with today's update for Dota 2 that includes a special Summer update for Dota Plus subscribers.

  • Valve Looking into "Better" Steam Spy Alternative

    Valve Looking into "Better" Steam Spy Alternative

    In April of this year, Valve started to change up the privacy settings for all Steam users. By default, all Steam users had their game libraries set to private. As a side-effect of this move, this left services like Steam Spy having to close up shop as they could no longer provide accurate data for public consumption. Now, Valve says that they're personally working on an alternative to Steam Spy. Specifically, they're making "something better than Steam Spy." This information was shared by Valve's head of business development, Jan-Peter Ewert, in a presentation he gave at the Russian White Nights conference. Independent developer Michael Kuzmin asked if Valve pl...

  • Valve Overhauls the Steam Chat System

    Valve Overhauls the Steam Chat System

    For the first time in years, Valve has provided a drastic overhaul to the Friends and Chat system within Steam. It has an all-new look with some new functionality such as embedding things like images, Giphy links, Twitter, Twitch, and even YouTube. You can even use something like /giphy to insert a random Giphy image, because that seems safe?

    It's got improvements to group chats, improvements to voice chat, it has a two week long chat history you can keep, it has a new "persona" invisible mode, a new way to rename friends, a new way to trade, a new way to add friends, and more!

    You can try this new functionality out in two different ways. You can either opt into the current Steam client beta by going to Steam > Settings > Account and opting into the currently available beta OR you can try it out via your web browser....

  • Valve Sends Cease and Desist to CS:GO Skin Trade Website OPSkins

    Valve Sends Cease and Desist to CS:GO Skin Trade Website OPSkins


    Earlier today, Valve sent a cease and desist request to OPSkins, a website that lives and thrives off of the off-site betting, buying, and selling of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skins. Valve even went so far as to make a news post about what they did today via the Counter-Strike website.
    For the last two years, Valve has enforced our Steam Subscriber Agreement terms as described in this post.

    In March 2018, we applied a seven-day trade cooldown to CS:GO trades, to fight fraud and misuse of Steam Accounts.

    On June 6, OPSkins launched ExpressTrade, which uses Valve intellectual property and violates our Steam Subscriber Agreement, and is already being used by other businesses to avoid Valve policies. Today we

  • Valve Will Continue to Do Nothing About What Games Appear on Steam

    Valve Will Continue to Do Nothing About What Games Appear on Steam

    Valve has essentially said "fuck it, put whatever you want on Steam just so long as we get a piece."

    This seems to be the general tone of today's blog post by Valve's Erik Johnson. The company that runs Steam continues to show that they kind of don't really care about what appears on the platform so long as it's not "illegal or straight up trolling." Of course, Valve also noted that they are the ones who ultimately decide what is "illegal" or "trolling" as it applies to games on their platform.
    (W)e've decided that the right approach is to allow everything onto the Steam Store, except for things that we decide are illegal, or straight up trolling. Taking this approach allows us to focus less on trying to police what should be on Steam, and
