    The Epic Store, In Its Current State, is Not Good for Anyone.

    Indie devs like myself have always likened to be the scrappy underdogs underneath the machine. While AAA game companies make their dollar to dollar decisions on using nylon for their $200 Collectors Edition bag to save a few bucks or revamp their loot box structure to better their game (in the face of outright hostile feedback), we, the Indie Devs, make games from the heart. That’s not to say there aren’t some cold, calculating moves done in the background...

    Looks like Rage 2 will be exclusive to the Bethesda launcher on PC

    Everyone’s building their own Steam competitor, and Bethesda is no exception. Rage 2 pre-orders went up last night, but only on the Bethesda.net Store, and the game still doesn’t have a Steam page. You might’ve expected this given that Fallout 76 launched exclusively on the publisher’s client, but now it seems certain Bethesda games going forward won’t be coming to other stores.

    Journey is coming to PC

    Epic hasn't announced this just yet, but it already has a page live on the Epic Store website: One of the games that will be released on its new store is Journey, which is "coming soon." The PS3 exclusive (well, not any more) from thatgamecompany was a big deal when it released. We've seen lots of experimentation in adventure and multiplayer games in the six years since, but back in 2012, it felt like an anomaly. It still did, when it was re-released on PS4.

    'Beat Saber' is Now the 7th Best Rated Steam Game of All Time

    Beat Saber has climbed to the #7 spot among best rated games on Steam—VR or otherwise—and continues to hold the #1 spot among VR titles. For a few days following its Early Access launch back in May, Beat Saber basked in the #1 spot of top rated titles on Steam as the only game on Steam with a 99% positive rating. A few weeks into release, a handful of negative reviews dropped the game down to 98%. With just 19 other games on Steam holding a 98% positive rating...

    Valve Pays £15,000 To Hacker Who Found Steam Bug That Generates Free Games

The self-described “bug hunter” came across a glitch that allowed him to generate thousands of free keys for any game on Steam. A lesser person might have kept that knowledge to themselves.

    The Mad Max video game is, in its very design, anti-fun

    Steam offers PC gamers the option to return video games. I used to be skeptical of the notion. Video games can be big. They can take time to reveal their best self. I am only a couple hours into Mad Max, and if I hadn’t received the copy for review, I would be demanding a refund. Mad Max isn’t a mediocre video game, doomed by technical flaws or shoddy art design. Mad Max is beautiful, and, unlike so many better games released this year...

    The next Hitman game has suffered a delay by a few months and will launch in March 2016. According to developer IO Interactive, Hitman is “the biggest venture” the studio has undertaken both in scope and game content. The extra time will allow for more of that content to be available at launch as Square Enix and IO Interactive are trying something different with Hitman by supporting the game with continuous updates after its release.

    Scant few games stand the test of time and retain a large active player base sixteen years after release. But not only has Age of Empires II endured, it has thrived.

Forgotten Empires filled the game with new stuff and rebalanced the multiplayer in one enormous mod and then...

    Game Theory: Minecraft's Ending, DECODED!

    When Minecraft first came out, players were confused about one thing...THE ENDING. Minecraft's ending is a 10-minute scroll of philosophical text that everyone either wrote off completely or LOVES to HATE. This weird, philosophical conversation/poem/mumbo-jumbo confused everyone and seemed all wrong for Minecraft, a game that technically is ENDLESS! But looking at it more closely, the ending of Minecraft hides an amazing story about the game, the universe, and how awesome WE are as gamers.

    A Video Game That Lets You Torture Iraqi Prisoners

    Attention grasp. Stress positions. Water dousing. Rectal rehydration. These are some of the government’s sanitized terms for the “enhanced interrogation techniques” that the CIA used on captives held at secret locations overseas during the George W. Bush administration. They mask the brutality that many prisoners faced for months or years under the agency’s interrogation program, as outlined in the landmark 2014 report from the Senate Intelligence Committee. That report is dense and riddled with redactions, but its findings have never been more relevant.

    Valve Bans Game Publisher After It Sues Players That Gave It Bad Steam Reviews

    Video game developer Digital Homicide, it would seem, is out to commit digital suicide. The studio already earned a bit of bad press earlier this year by slapping game critic Jim Sterling with a ridiculous $10 million lawsuit for posting rude video reviews of their games since 2014, and that still isn't settled. Now, however, they're casting a wider net that's only provoking more anger. Based on legal documents posted on Google Docs recently by YouTuber SidAlpha, Digital Homicide developer James Romine is now suing 100 users of Valve's Steam digital distribution platform for $18 million for the heinous crime of leaving bad reviews...

    Steam will soon natively support PlayStation 4 controllers

    While it's been possible to link a DualShock 4 to a PC to play Steam games, the functionality has been provided by third-party apps, not the companies themselves. Luckily, that will soon change, after Valve's Jeff Bellinghausen confirmed to Gamasutra that the game company is working to include native support for other gamepads, starting with the PlayStation 4 controller.

As you may recall we were the first to accurately leak Red Dead Redemption 2 details. Other Websites like Forbes even tried to make fun of us for it. They weren’t laughing very long. Our source also accurately called The Last Of Us 2 reveal weeks before it dropped. Reddit didn’t know whether or not to believe us. They were believers a few weeks later.
