PSA: Get Steam Link For $1 (Plus A Cheap Game)

The Steam Link is a device that allows you to stream your Steam games to another television in the house via wifi or ethernet. If you’ve been holding out on buying the Link thanks to its bank-breaking $50 price tag, you are in luck (but only if you act fast). Valve has placed the Steam […]

In Plain English: Epic Sues Two Fortnite Cheat Creators

I’m not entirely happy with the press coverage of Epic Games’ lawsuit. If you’ve been reading the news this week, you may be under the impression that Epic Games was so angry about two particular players cheating in Fortnite that the game developer decided to take these two individuals to court. This isn’t exactly the […]

Valve’s Trading Card Update Shoots Shovelware Games In The Heart

Those of you who use or follow Steam in any capacity are no doubt aware of the high volume of low effort shovelware being heaped onto the service, increasingly from developers out of Russia, that have popped up on Steam for one purpose: Farming trading cards. These games use unscrupulous methods, through bot voting or […]

2016 In Review: The Year’s Most Unexpected Events

I can’t always predict the future. No, it’s true, and I am willing to admit what may just be the only flaw in an otherwise perfect being. I’m just that humble. So yea, 2016 brought with it some big surprises, and you won’t believe #6 (because this list only goes up to 5). What happened […]

Greed Monger Officially Dead…Again

Greed Monger has once again been cancelled, leaving everyone who pledged the over ninety grand out of luck, again. The MMO was Kickstarted to the tune of ninety grand, only to face development issues and eventual cancellation under Jason Appleton and Electric Crow Games. Appleton handed over the title to ex-employee Jason Proctor who has, […]

Raptr’s Top October List

Raptr has released their top played list for October 2014, and the list is hardly surprising. ArcheAge remains popular, rising to the fifth place with World of Warcraft taking its natural spot below League of Legends in preparation for this month’s launch of Warlords of Draenor. The Old Republic rose three ranks, outdoing Final Fantasy […]

Less Massive: Google Pays $19 Million Over Apps

Google has been ordered by the Federal Trade Commission to pay $19 million in refunds for apps and in-app purchases made by children since 2011 when in-app purchases were first introduced to the service. The Federal Trade Commission most notably took issue with the premise that Google didn’t do enough to protect customers from unauthorized […]

False Alarm: GTA Online Is GTA V Online

It’s a knee jerk reaction to assume that whenever a company places the word Online in their title, that the game will be an MMO.
