Get your table-flipping on with Tabletop Simulator on Steam Early Access

We've all been so mad we could flip a table, and for the longest time we've had to use outdated AOL RP-speak and emoticons to convey said anger electronically. Well, those days are over with the advent of Tabletop Simulator,...

This 20:41 speedrun of Half-Life is a joy to watch

Segmented or not, this record-breaking 20:41 speedrun of Half-Life is seriously impressive. But as mind-blowing and enjoyable as it is to watch without context, the more you read up on the run, the crazier it all seems. Take...

The eBook Video Game Bundle is out now

The previous videogame-themed collection of eBooks from Story Bundle kept me well read for quite some time, so I'm more than ready to dip into the new 3.0 bundle. There's some really eye-catching titles in the bundle, includi...

Some weird stuff was just greenlit on Steam

When a new batch of Greenlight titles gets approved for release on Steam, I have a pretty simple routine: scan the list for recognizable names or thumbnails that show potential. That's it. The April 3 batch does have some gam...

Bulletstorm inexplicably yanked from Steam

In a somewhat baffling move, it appears the raucous Epic Games and People Can Fly first-person shooter Bulletstorm has been removed from the likes of Steam. It's a classic case of "here today and gone tomorrow" as the skillsh...

This Steam Greenlight batch is surprisingly good

Darren and I were both taken aback by the latest group of games to move forward through Steam Greenlight after a few less-than-stellar batches -- it's got some gems. The full 75-title list can be viewed over here, but these a...
