You guys, there are HOLOGRAPHIC Steam trading cards

Do you remember your first holographic Pokemon card? I do, it was a Dewgong. I loved that card; it meant so much to me. In an apparent attempt to capture that same feeling, Valve has introduced Foil cards to its new line of S...

Pyro's dream came true: Balloonicorn plush coming in July

Remember last year when we finally got to meet the Pyro? Shortly after that video released, we were able to have our very own inflatable Balloonicorn to love and to cherish. Now, Valve has announced a fluffier, more cuddly ve...

It's robot hell in this brilliant Team Fortress 2 short

Back in the glory days of Futurama came the brilliant "Hell Is Other Robots" episode that saw bender going to Robot Hell after committing some sins. The Robot Devil performs a little musical piece detailing Bender's torture in hell, and YouTuber MisterMulluc beautifully recreates the performance in Team Fortress 2 using the Source Filmmaker. This is just wonderful.

Virtual reality is the future of treadmills ... I think?

You don't need a gym when you have a 3DS and elliptical machine, I've realized in recent months. Playing Fire Emblem while working my calfs is both great fun and great fitness, yet my mind has been wondering what else is out...

A better look at Poker Night 2's cross-game unlocks

GDC: Valve, virtual reality, and the Oculus Rift

Back in the day, everyone thought virtual reality was going to be the future of games. We made movies, TV shows, and even very bad early attempts to make head-mounted displays. All of those devices failed, and over time, VR d...

The Venture Bros. meet Source Filmmaker

YouTuber JackMuu used the Source Filmmaker to remake this classic scene from The Venture Bros. Really, I'll take any excuse to talk about Venture Bros. Oh, and don't forget you can get the Henchman gear plus other Adult Swim themed outfits for Team Fortress 2.
