Some people who make (or made) video games are dirt poor. Others, however, could start campfires using $100 bills. In this post, we're looking at the latter.
Today at GDC, Stephen got to mess around with Valve's newest Steam Controller model.
In the past, I've expressed a healthy amount of skepticism about VR. In 20 minutes, Valve's VR demo sold me on the concept. Mostly.
Building a gaming PC can be time-consuming and stressful. There are a thousand things that could go wrong, and any one of them could wind up costing hundreds of dollars. And yet we do it anyway. Why? Because building PCs is totally awesome.
Steam Early Access might be a drag sometimes, but it isn't always. Here's Eurogamer with a list of ten Early Access games that are delivering on what they promised. Which ones have you played?
I would watch an entire show in this "Pokedex" style. The voice behind the Pokedex is just so soothing.
Five Nights at Freddy's has made a name for itself by scaring the bejesus out of younger folk on YouTube. But older folks? They're not phased by its silly animatronic teddie bears. Pfft.
When Capcom revealed Resident Evil: Revelations 2 wouldn't have local co-op on the PC, the intrepid modding community immediately went to work. The result? Local co-op on the PC.

Playing through Homeworld again after all these years is weird.
It's hard not to marvel at the boundless (sometimes disturbing) creativity with which people approach Steam construction mega-hit Besiege. This, though, is different. Cold, mechanical precision. Infinite versatility. Doom.
Anyone should be proud for finishing Dark Souls II. From Software's sadistic action games are punishing by any standard. The community around the games, however, keeps upping the ante. What's one way to make Dark Souls II harder? Beating it in first-person with an Oculus Rift.
The remastered editions of the two main Homeworld games are out today, introducing a whole new generation to one of the greatest series in modern video games. So there's no better time to appreciate one of the things people love most about them: artist Rob Cunningham's work designing Homeworld's iconic ships.
