Steam Store

We know the Steam Store as a one-stop shop for some of the hottest games available for the PC. Indeed, that photo you see in this article is representative of your typical day at the Steam Store – popular titles, with a lot of them available at a discounted price.  Things may be a little different for the digital distribution site next month, as Valve announced today that it will be selling software programs that […]


The co-founder and managing director (and gaming god) of Valve Gabe Newell made an appearance at Casual Connect, an annual videogame conference in Seattle, Washington Tuesday evening. During an evening dinner, Newell had a chat with former VP of game publishing at Microsoft, Ed Fries in which he unveiled some of his odd and secret projects in true Newell fashion. All Things D has the report:   “Everything we are doing is not going to […]


To many, Valve is one of the best video game companies in the world. They make incredible games and have gave way to some of the most fascinating and memorable games in the history of gaming. Games such as the original Half-Life, Half-Life 2, and the Portal franchise have acted as shining examples as to how a story can be told within a game and free of cutscenes. I remember the first time I played […]


Twelve dollars and forty-nine cents for all Grand Theft Auto titles released for the PC?  You better believe it, as one of Steam’s latest daily deals offers gamers a chance to purchase every GTA title at the extremely low price of $12.49.  That’s roughly 75 percent off on the entire package and almost seven dollars cheaper than what one would pay for any one of the seven items in the bundle.  So if you don’t […]


As early as sever years ago, you would be fair to say that the adventure game genre was basically dead. The genre of gaming that dominated the PC market in the 80’s and 90’s saw its demise around the turn of the millennium as PC power increased. Whereas most gamers were busy “pointing and clicking” their way through mysterious worlds and solving challenging puzzles in the century before, the millennium saw the PC market being […]

indie revolution cons

From the vantage point of most small time developers, the indie explosion that has taken the gaming industry by storm over the past several years is nothing short of incredible. Suddenly, aspiring game makers have affordable access to the tools they need to rapidly create niche, oft-kilter products. And thanks to portals like Steam the best indie games are being made visible to the masses. Additionally, crowd sourcing formats like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are helping […]


Rune – a third person, melee hack and slash arena game – goes for 5.59 EUR on Steam until June 20. In case you missed this awesome title, Rune single-player is not important – what made the title famous is Rune multi-player, where you get into arena with other bloodthirsty melee oriented folks, and hack and slash your way to the top of the Kill/Death chart. In most cases you kill with one hit, on […]

What I Want From Half-Life 3

For what feels like the umpteenth time, rumors have begun to fly about the possibility of a Half-Life 3 announcement at this year’s E3. While I’ve prepared myself for these rumors to be completely false (Valve seems to think they are), I can’t help but feel as if Valve has been mum for far too long regarding the Half-Life franchise’s future, and that this really could be the year that we see Gordon Freeman and […]

Is Free to Play the Future of Gaming?

In case your PC has been collecting dust as of late, you’ve likely noticed a huge influx of free to play titles popping up within the PC gaming sphere. Titles like Super Monday Night Combat and Blacklight: Retribution have made an arguably larger splash than normal simply because of their free to play features. The advantages of the “freemium” model have been clearly demonstrated time and time again, yet some gamers feel slighted by the […]

Could An Apple and Valve Console Really Work?

While the alleged rumor that Apple CEO Tim Cook meeting with Valve’s esteemed Gabe Newell was recently put to rest, the prospect of an Apple or Valve console certainly sent the Internet into a dizzying state of speculation. Could the two software giants really come together to produce something to challenge the big three in the future? Would it even be a smart business move to enter the console market this late in the game? […]
