Frontiers looks really neat. The just-released-on-Early-Access fantasy RPG contains shades of The Elder Scrolls, especially Morrowind and Skyrim, but with an emphasis on exploration over combat. The game's creator, however, doesn't want you to give it to friends as a Christmas gift. He was adamant about that.
Earlier today unsettlingly violent shooter Hatred appeared on Steam Greenlight. Not long after, it was yanked from the massive PC gaming service. And while Valve was—like Aus Target and GTA V—within their rights, I think they could've handled it better. Meanwhile Hatred continues to manufacture controversy, and that's…
For a brief, magical period of time, you could surf on birds in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. As in, ascend into the skies on their tiny, feathered backs. Unfortunately, it broke the terrorist-fragging heck out of the game, so Valve had to take it out. But they added something fun to make up for it.
Keenly aware that people's Steam accounts are filling up with garbage - like cards and emoticons - Valve is giving people a chance to pulp them and turn them into what are essentially Steam Bucks. And then use them to bid on real games.
What better way to make the wait for Fallout 4 news more torturous than to look back on some of what made the older games so excellent?
The Dahn is a collector. He's managed to painstakingly amass a glittering arsenal of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in-game items that total out to a real money value of between $7,500 and $9,000. And now he's getting rid of them all.
It might seem like an odd fit at first, but Valve's legendary Half-Life series—with all its tug-of-warring alien factions infesting Earth—seems like it was practically made to play host to a strategy game—albeit in the same way the human body was "made" to be host to a headcrab. But hey, this one is free.
The Deer God doesn't hold your hand, or tell you what to do. It can be a struggle, but it's all worth it when you're shooting fire out your antlers.
Ever since the dawn of the Twitch livestreaming age, it's seemed like a no-brainer for Steam to add some sort of quick and easy broadcasting option. And yet for some reason (hint: it's Valve), they've taken their time. But finally, it's here.
To say that all is not well in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's pro scene would be a massive understatement. Multiple pros have been caught cheating by Valve's official anti-cheat software, and even more are suspected.
Rollers of the Realm is a pinball/RPG hybrid. It's also the type of pinball game I've wanted for a long time.
As we've seen with its patch notes, Crusader Kings II is a game that, taken out of context, sounds completely insane. The game's forums are no different.
The first Five Nights At Freddy's was released rather recently—and yet already, the series has a sequel. Better yet, the sequel is tearing up the Top Sellers chart on Steam.
If you're a developer selling a game on Steam, it's probably not the best idea in the world to tweet a death threat to the guy who owns Steam.
Steam Greenlight was originally envisioned as a way for fans to help select which games would make it onto Valve's ridiculously ubiquitous PC gaming storefront. Unfortunately, it's kinda busted sometimes. A group of game creators has decided to take matters into their own hands by gaming the system. Kinda.
