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.

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 […]

Column: Stripped Down For Belgium, A Post-Lootbox Ruling

Rest in peace, Belgium gaming. That’s hyperbole.

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 […]
