Beginning on September 25, a moderation team at Valve “will start reviewing reported discussion posts in all game hubs on Steam.”
If you were hoping to spend your weekend not with Spider-Man or Lara Croft, but instead with the outerwear-despising anime girls of the long-awaited “100 percent uncensored” Steam visual novel Negligee: Love Stories, I’m not gonna judge. But I am gonna tell you that even though it’s now out on Steam, you still might…
Old School Musical is an incredibly charming rhythm adventure game that pairs a dope pixelated art style with chiptune tracks. The game is out today for Switch and PC.
I’m a sucker for tactics games and cyberpunk settings. Frozen Synapse 2 combines both into a cerebral, moody management game full of corporate politicking and high tech squad battles. While the game can be glitchy and has rough edges, the core experience nails everything I want in a cyberpunk game.
Plenty of explorations games give you the opportunity to walk through colorful fields or strange, alien worlds. But sometimes it feels like all you can do is wander around. Mendel allows the player to breed plants in order to create wild and unexpected new species.
Things were looking dicey for a little while, but it seems like Valve is set to start allowing uncensored adult games onto Steam. Well, some of them, anyway—starting with Dharker Studio’s lingerie-centric visual novel, Negligee: Love Stories.
Before it was reborn in 2005, British science fiction mainstay Doctor Who survived 26 years of flimsy sets, questionable costumes and laughable effects by telling great stories with excellent talent. That’s also what raises Doctor Who Infinity above the match-three game that serves as its foundation.
Today Nightdive Studios released the source port update for System Shock: Enhanced Edition on PC. Not to be confused with the full remake the studio is working on, the update does things like add higher resolution options and mod support for the existing version, while also fixing many of its bugs.
Steam has some issues. Valve says it’s working on fixing them, and as part of a progress update today, it finally took aim at the biggest one of all: Naz—I mean, constant age gates that never stop popping up no matter how many times you assure Steam you’re not two years old.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has had a reward system for quite a while now, but fans don’t exactly love it. You can purchase randomized cosmetic crates with “Battle Points” that you earn in-game, but the system funnels you into spending real money too quickly for some people’s tastes. Enter the new “Supply” system.
There are two things in this world that Valve evidently loves more than anything: hands-off approaches and the invisible hand of the market. And wouldn’t you know it: DOTA 2 card game Artifact is gonna have plenty of both.
In the short time since its release, survival game SCUM has caught players’ eyes for its ludicrous attention to detail, its slapstick antics, and—in the grand tradition of survival games like Ark: Survival Evolved—diarrhea. It’s already sold over 250,000 copies. Yesterday, though, the game caught players off guard in…
The first time I died in SCUM, I was exploring a military base for supplies. After scrounging a backpack and some high quality gear, I stepped outside and right into the path of a giant goddamn robot. It shot me, and I fled into the forest. Unsure what to do, I sat by a river until I died. The second time I died, I…
Monster Hunter: World’s dangerous Behemoth requires a lot of focus to take down. The battle, inspired by Final Fantasy XIV’s boss raids, is a huge change of pace from most fights and a hard roadblock for plenty of hunters. The extreme version of the fight makes things even harder, but a group of amazingly coordinated…
James Cox was finally feeling optimistic about his game’s chances on Steam. Last year, his horror-inspired exploration of what it’s like to look at porn for the first time, You Must Be 18 or Older to Enter, got booted from Valve’s walled garden, but then, earlier this year, Valve said it was getting rid of all the…
Rep. Duncan Hunter, who you may remember from a 2016 report alleging he spent campaign money on Steam games, has been indicted on charges of “wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations and conspiracy”, CNN reports.
Shenmue I and II’s HD remasters released on Steam today and I’ve been playing all morning. Yu Suzuki’s 1999 adventure game helped set a standard for open world exploration. Its secret is simple: lots of and lots of “pointless” but satisfying interactions.
Valve is overhauling Steam broadcasting. After accidentally launching Steam TV on Friday, Valve has officially rolled out the platform for DOTA 2 and plans to do so for all games in the near future. Features include Steam chat integration, live event rewind, and annotations for moments like first blood in a DOTA match.
Helping Hand begins with your character getting into a car accident and smashing almost every bone in their body. In the game, you can only communicate with your left hand. It’s more interesting than actually being in a full-body cast, but not by much.
Today, Valve quietly debuted what appears to be a new video game streaming platform, which could be a direct competitor to Twitch, called Steam TV.
