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.

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.

During the E3 press conference earlier today, Warner Bros. Interactive debuted the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins. The trailer shows off plenty of brutal action in Gotham City where villains rule factions and factions rule the streets. It looks like Batman is up for a challenge in this prequel as someone sets a bounty for his head, but no doubt the younger Batman will outsmart these baddies and save the world like he does.
