After the announcement of SteamOS and Steam Machines over the course of the week, it’s only natural that Valve release a controller to go along with their latest venture into the living rooms of gamers. The Steam Controller is (at least in its current presented form) a sleek-looking controller for Valve’s upcoming line of gaming/living room consoles.
It’s the second of three exciting announcements from Valve this week; and just minutes ago, the company famous for the Steam game management platform just revealed their next big thing they are bringing into the living room: Steam Machines.
Valve is keeping mum on the specifications of their Steam Machines right now (which has been called Steam Box in the past) but assures that they will be available for purchase at the ‘beginning of 2014′ with “multiple SteamOS [...]
Fable Anniversary won’t make its original holiday 2013 deadline, Lionhead Studios announced today. Lead designer Ted Timmins explains the HD remake of Fable will be delayed to 2014 because the studio needs “a little more time in order to meet our ambitions and give you, the fans, the best game possible”.
The Xbox-exclusive title will be released in February 2014 in physical form and online via the Xbox Games Store. In addition to Fable Anniversary, a title with multiplayer for the [...]
The controller of the upcoming Xbox One will soon be able to work not just on Microsoft’s next-generation console but on PC as well. According to what video game blog GamesBeat heard from an unnamed Microsoft spokesperson, the new controller for the Xbox One sports new technology that makes it different from the controller used by the Xbox 360 and that it will take “some work” to make the new controller work with PC games that were [...]
It’s been a while since any major video games have been released by any of the game studios but things are starting to ramp up as September approaches. Ubisoft has just released the PC specification requirements for their upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist stealth-adventure video game.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive turns one year old next week. The modern-day successor to the original Counter-Strike, which started out as a Half-Life mod, brought in modernized graphics and tweaked gameplay to the table. In the past year, Valve has released countless updates on the PC platform to continuously bring in new content (notably new official maps and Steam Workshop for CS:GO), tweak gameplay based on feedback from playerbase and professional players and improve on features to make the game more [...]
AMD has new graphics cards and GPU products, under the codename Volcanic Islands, set to launch next month. After about a year and a half since their successful Radeon HD7000 series made its debut, AMD is scheduled to launch their new Volcanic Islands series products in Hawaii on September 25, 2013. A new naming convention (supposedly easier for consumers to understand) is said to make an appearance with these new graphics cards.
Konami might be gearing up for a sequel to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the spin-off game in the Metal Gear Solid franchise that they released with Platinum Games in February 2013. Linking to a publicly available survey from their official Metal Gear Solid website, Konami is asking for input on how gamers felt about Revengeance and what they’d like to see more if a potential sequel was to be made.
We’re almost into July and the holiday season of 2013 is just edging closer, along with the launch of next-generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft. The big $100 gap between the $399 PlayStation 4 and $499 Xbox One has certainly sparked plenty of raised eyebrows and debates; since Sony’s offering is clearly cheaper AND apparently has slightly better hardware to power games, while the Xbox One comes with the Kinect camera (something gamers will have to shell out extra for [...]
It’s a great time to be a PC gamer and if you’re just starting to build one of your own, AMD has expanded its Never Settle Reloaded game giveaway with a special Level Up promotion. AMD has added one additional free game so anyone who purchases their Radeon HD 7870, 7950 and 7970 graphics cards will now get the same 4 games (Crysis 3, BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon).
Plenty of Counter-Strike players are going to be really happy today as Valve issued an update containing a new official map and several very welcome additions to their Global Offensive game.
During Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, the studio released a new trailer for its upcoming open-world game Watch Dogs, featuring antihero Aiden Pearce taking down a human trafficker with his “fists and wits”. The trailer plays out just like a movie or uncannily like TV show Person of Interest, whichever way you want to look at it, and I must say that this is the most impressive E3 trailer I’ve seen.
