Valve Says It Will Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' From Steam Scores Valve Says It Will Remove 'Off-Topic Review Bombs' From Steam Scores

Over the past few years, review bombs—people organizing en masse to post negative reviews to a game’s store page to tank its review score—have become one of Steam’s most visible issues. Last year alone, review bombing happened in Steam reviews over everything from women generals to sales that happened too early.…

Mutazione is an adventure game that describes itself as “a mutant soap opera where small-town gossip meets the supernatural.” It’s from the developers of Where Is My Heart? and Johann Sebastian Joust, and it’ll be focused on both personal drama and “high-stakes” adventure. It’s coming to PC and PS4 later this year.

Today, Valve announced an upgrade to Steam Link called Steam Link Anywhere. It’s what it sounds like, allowing users to stream games to “computers” anywhere—not just on their local networks. This includes phones running the Steam Link app, so not iPhones. Steam Link Anywhere is in beta now.

In Shotgun Farmers, You Shoot Guns And Your Bullets Grow New Guns In Shotgun Farmers, You Shoot Guns And Your Bullets Grow New Guns

In most multiplayer first-person shooters, you don’t want to miss that clutch headshot because 1) it’ll mean giving up your location, and 2) missing just isn’t fun. In Shotgun Farmers, there’s a third factor to consider: your bullet will embed itself into the ground and sprout a happy little gun tree, which your enemy…

Overwatch’s newest hero, combat medic Baptiste, is coming to live servers on March 19. He’ll presumably be accompanied by a slew of balance changes Blizzard has been testing, meaning that we could be looking at a big shake up to the game’s meta. Or not! We’ll find out next week.

Report: EA Paid Ninja $1 Million To Stream Apex Legends Report: EA Paid Ninja $1 Million To Stream Apex Legends

These days, it’s not uncommon to see big companies promote their games by cutting deals with top YouTubers and streamers, but how much does one of those deals cost? In the case of chameleon-haired Twitch king Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, the number could be as high as $1 million.

For the past month, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek has been on top of the streaming world. The launch of Apex Legends catapulted the former Counter-Strike pro into a higher echelon of Twitch popularity than he’d ever achieved playing games like PUBG and Call of Duty, bringing him up to 100,000 subscribers and nearly 6…

Devil May Cry 5 Slightly Censored, But Only On PS4 Devil May Cry 5 Slightly Censored, But Only On PS4

Devil May Cry is known for many things: great combat, cheesy one-liners, devils that rarely, if ever, actually cry. But it’s not known for nudity. That’s made the occasional flashes of forbidden flesh all the more noticeable in Devil May Cry 5, especially given that how much nudity you see is determined by the…

Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Looks Weirdly Gritty Without Cel-Shading Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Looks Weirdly Gritty Without Cel-Shading

Two years after its release, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild remains a near-perfect game. It’s also still easy on the eyes, thanks to a cartoony style that’ll stand the test of time for years, if not decades to come. So what happens when you strip away that candy-colored exterior? It looks pretty grim, to be…

Twitter Account Asks The All-Important Video Game Question: Can You Pet The Dog? Twitter Account Asks The All-Important Video Game Question: Can You Pet The Dog?

Dawn Of Man, As Told By Steam Reviews Dawn Of Man, As Told By Steam Reviews

Since the dawn of video games—and possibly even the dawn of man—human beings have been creating city-building games. It’s fitting, then, that the latest genre hit is set in prehistoric times and called Dawn of Man. Steam users are loving it.

Rawmen is a Splatoon-like PC multiplayer shooter where naked men fight each other with soup. That description is, in so many ways, a mouthful. The game will contain “numerous food-fueled super weapons” when it launches into early access sometime this year. And lots of soupy little dudes.

Hey, let’s check in on LudwigAhgren, one of the streamers we featured in our post about Pogostuck the other day. I’m sure that, tens of hours later, he’s doing great and— oh. Oh no. (Volume warning.)

The Occupation Is A Thrilling Investigative Game Where Every Second Counts  The Occupation Is A Thrilling Investigative Game Where Every Second Counts 

I’ve got 10 minutes until my big interview with a member of a group that’s trying to demonize immigrants and radically alter government policy. My leads are solid, but they unravel into an unsightly tangle of loose ends. Oh, have I mentioned that I’m sneaking around inside a ventilation system? And that if I get…

Steam's 'Popular Upcoming Releases' Section Is Easy To Manipulate Steam's 'Popular Upcoming Releases' Section Is Easy To Manipulate

On a platform as crowded as Steam, every ounce of visibility counts. For many developers, the “popular upcoming” section is the most reliable way to get precious front-page real estate before release. Some people, however, have figured out how to game it.

Pogostuck Is The Latest Game To Make Twitch Streamers Rage Pogostuck Is The Latest Game To Make Twitch Streamers Rage

On the internet, everybody is angry all the time. The 2017 release of Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy, then, marked a special occasion: a time when everybody on the internet was mad at the same thing. Pogostuck is trying to replicate that feat.
