New European Union law to forbid geoblocking in early 2018!

The European Commission is putting it’s hands on the Internet once again. This time it could be really good for us. The earlier mentioned Steam region blocks case can do more harm than good. Just image how bad it would be for the Eastern European countries if they just generalize the prices to fit all regions. Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and others are going to get higher prices, no doubts here. It really sucks but there’s nothing we can do about it. Business is business. Now this case is kind of different!

New EU rules will remove geoblocking so the EU customers can use online subscription services, like Netflix, Spotify or even Steam (maybe? some games are regionally restricted due to violence etc.) abroad. It does not mean that Netflix would have to offer the same library of content across all member countries. But if a customer signs up in one country, that same library can be accessed from any other member country. I’ve been to a couple of European countries in the past few years and Netflix was always driving me crazy, only showing the regional content, including movie/TV show covers (at least it was still in English if I wanted it to be, just change it in the account settings!).

The new regulations come into effect in early 2018, online services must provide a service to its customers regardless of their current location, as long as they stay within the EU.

Australians will be charged 10% more for Steam games soon!

Starting July 2017 all Aussies are going to pay 10% more for their Steam games. The report comes from Kotaku, following an email reportedly sent to developers by Valve. “The VAT tax amount will be included in the advertised price of your product, just like VAT is currently treated in the EU … the customer will pay the price displayed on the storefront, and the tax will be separated out afterwards.”

Some publishers and studios might choose to absorb the tax themselves (highly unlikely) to stay at the same price. Whatever the case, despite promises in 2014 that it was imminent, Australia still doesn’t have its own currency on Steam.

Countries like: New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Iceland, South Africa and India, will also pay taxes specific to those regions in March.

There is no information about the alternative stores (Origin, UPlay, GOG, GMG, GamersGate, G2A, Kinguin etc.) at this time.

Gabe Newell: Modders absolutely need to be compensated

Remember the last time when Valve tried to introduce paid mods on Steam? It didn’t go well and it did not survive contact with the PC gaming community. When the proposal was announced in April 2015 with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as a pilot game it mostly got negative feedback. Shortly after that Valve removed the feature altogether. To some gamers the notion of paying modders for their work was contrary to the spirit of modding. Many suggested a donation scheme for Steam Workshop modders as an alternative to traditional pricing.

Gabe Newell discusses VR Thursday alongside Joe Ludwig (left) and Matt Brown.

“We underestimated the differences between our previously successful revenue sharing models, and the addition of paid mods to Skyrim’s workshop,” Valve’s Alden Kroll wrote at the time. “We understand our own game’s communities pretty well, but stepping into an established, years old modding community in Skyrim was probably not the right place to start iterating. We think this made us miss the mark pretty badly, even though we believe there’s a useful feature somewhere here.”

“… modders create a lot of value, and we think that … absolutely they need to be compensated, they’re creating value and the degree to which they’re not being accurately compensated is a bug in the system, right? It’s just inserting noise into it,” said Gabe Newell. “You want to have efficient ways so that the people who are actually creating value are the people that money is flowing to.”

The Skyrim situation was a mess. It was not the right place to launch that specific thing and we did some sort of ham-handed, stupid things in terms of how we rolled it out,” he said. “EJ [Valve’s Erik Johnson] basically said we just need to back off of this for now, but the fundamental concept of ‘the gaming community needs to reward the people who are creating value’ is pretty important, right? … the degree to which Valve helps contribute to efficiency in the system is one of the ways in which we’re adding value to the system as a whole. So, you know, we have to just figure out how to do it in a way that makes customers happy and that they buy into it, it makes creators happy because they feel like the system is rational and is rewarding the right people for the work that they do. Does that make sense?”

Skyrim gave us a ton of information. But there was also a little bit of ‘That burner is hot. Maybe we wait awhile before we put our fingers on that burner again.'”

Insurgency: Sandstorm looks incredible so far!

Source Engine used to be amazing. That was in 2004. These days you games are looking even better but nothing beats Unreal Engine 4. Thankfully New World Interactive knows what’s good and they have just released an amazing amount of concept art from their brand new Insurgency project. If you have no idea what Insurgency is go ahead and get yourself a key from one of the Steam Alternative stores or get it directly on Steam. You can try it out if it’s realistic enough for you, it has a coop mode and a very competitive online community.

But the current state of the game is kind of dull because of the Source Engine. The engine lacks good physics for example, sure Half-Life 2 looked great back then but it’s time to move on! Unreal Engine 4 is amazing. Enough of talking just look at the details below to see what I mean:

Insurgency: Sandstorm is a sequel to Insurgency that is bringing renowned hardcore shooter gameplay to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam next year, published by Focus Home Interactive. Also available on Steam, Sandstorm is using the Unreal Engine 4 platform to fulfill the potential of New World’s talented indie team. At its core, Sandstorm features the close-quarters infantry combat for multiplayer and cooperative gameplay that has established Insurgency as a cult classic for over 3 million players on Steam.

New World is also venturing into new territory with a story mode for 4-player cooperative and singleplayer gameplay. A groundbreaking narrative for the shooter genre, the story focuses on a female protagonist. Thematically, Insurgency: Sandstorm is inspired by real events and people, however this is a fictional story and characters.

Sure these are concept arts but I do believe that this company can deliver. Can’t wait for the game or some sort of beta to come out (supposedly by the end of this year).

The devs of Conan Exiles upload the game to Steam without any protection

Conan Exiles debuted on Steam earlier this week and very quickly ended up cracked and pirated. It was supposed to be secured by Denuvo, the famous anti-piracy software that took a while to crack. Except that it wasn’t. The game developer Funcom says that this was entirely an employee error, somebody uploaded the game without any protection to Steam.

“Denuvo was temporarily removed due to an error in the build process.”

Conan Exiles lets players run their own servers so the game is really popular among pirates. However, this is just an Early Access release so we can assume that the game will be developed further and improved from here. People with the pirated version are going to be left behind eventually.

It kind of looks like they’ve decided to advertise the game that way, especially after reading that statement:

“There is unfortunately not much we can do about those who choose to download and play unauthorized copies, but we hope they make the jump to the official version so they can stay up to date with the latest patches and improvements,”… “Being an Early Access title, there will be a lot of updates going forward!”

Some people actually say it’s a really good survival game…
