[Column] Bulkhead Interactive Asks Community To Manipulate Steam Reviews

Bulkhead Interactive is playing with fire, and I have a feeling they’re going to get burned. World War 2 shooter Battalion 1944 currently stands at a 31% “Mostly Negative” rating on Steam, with 115 currently playing users and an all time peak of 16,341. Earlier today, Bulkhead’s community manager posted a thread on the game’s […]

Early Access: Battle Royale Survivors Is Lazy Dreck

I had to give Battle Royale: Survivors a look, it just had to be done. Battle Royale: Survivors is the latest in the long line of developers jumping on the PUBG bandwagon and if you’re thinking that this game looks like a twinstick shovelware title built off of the Unity engine, well you’re right on […]

The Netherlands Litigated On CS:Go Lootboxes, So Valve Killed Trading In the Netherlands

Gamers in the Netherlands woke up this week to find out that they are no longer able to trade or market items in Counter Strike: Global Offensive or Dota 2.

Chaturday: The Seeming Lack of Non-Trolling Offensive Games

I’ve been thinking long and hard about Valve’s new policy regarding offensive games and how this could negatively affect their user base, by which I mean I haven’t been giving it much thought at all. My attention, however, has turned to the idea that Steam will be flooded by horrifying, bullying, aggressive, abusive, games designed […]

[Column] EA Origin Premier Is A Value Proposition

Back when Origin/EA Access debuted on PC and Xbox, I said that it was one of the most gutsy things that Electronic Arts has done in their history next to the Origin Guarantee (refund policy) and my reasoning was pretty simple: By showing off their games in 10 hour trials before launch, EA is taking […]

Chaturday: The One in Which I Get Myself Blacklisted, And That’s a Good Thing

I had some extra time to work on today’s Chaturday article, so I thought I’d make this one extra long. Sit back and enjoy. This week I’d like to take a look at Valve’s recent decision to no longer curate games on Steam, barring games that are illegal or blatantly trolling. This has prompted an […]
