CS:GO available for pre-order, unfair prices!

csgo
 

You can now pre-order Counter Strike Global Offensive. With this being the the first Valve-release in more than a year, Valve have decided to continue using their stupid tier-system in which they have randomly divided Europe into two tiers + the UK. The game is quite cheap, being a new release and all. This is especially true for the USA and parts of Europe.

Steam Greenlight announced!

Steam Greenlight
Valve’s approval process have long been subject to criticism, claiming it is very hard for indie developers to get their games released on Steam. Today valve announced the release of Steam Greenlight. It is scheduled for release August 30 (keep in mind though, that this is Valve-time, so the release date will likely be some time later).

This will allow publishers to post information, videos and screenshots from games. The public can then give feedback, and vote on the games they want to be released on Steam. If a game gets enough votes, Valve will release it. This will allow a lot of indie games to circumvent Valve’s approval process. Recently Valve denied the 3DS success “Mutant Mudds” a steam release, and also the hugely successful “Aquaria” was first refused.

Hopefully this new approval system will make it easier for indie developers to get their games out on Steam. In the long run this may lead to more great games to be developed, as it will make it easier to have games published on Steam, which have a large market share when it comes to digitally downloadable games.

Steam: New S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game with cool promo

If you happen to own previous S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games (Shadow of Chernobyl or Clear Sky) on your Steam account you can get the newest (Call of Pripyat) for 9€ (or 50% less, depends on a Tier).

Simply buy the game and let it check if you have older Chernobyl games on your account, if yes the new one will be working ok.

However, you cannot gift Call of Pripyat with the discounted price to anyone but that’s pretty obvious.

Join our discussion forums to talk more about this!

Uplay – it’s all about you!

Uplay

Ubisoft is launching their new service called Uplay. I gotta say that the presentation on their website is stunning! What is Uplay? It’s just another service like Games For Windows Live or Steam Community.

Basically you have so called Uplay Win which has accomplishments (achievements), points and other unlockable stuff that is synchronized with your consoles (XboX 360 and PS3) and the PC!

Uplay Help has tutorials and walkthroughs created by the community or Ubisoft game developers.

Uplay Store has all the DLC and probably games like Assasin’s Creed 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction for now.

Uplay Share – friends and your own content like videos from the game or screenshots.

All services are available through the game you’re playing or Uplay.com! Could this crash XboX Live/Games For Windows Live or services like Steam Community or Xfire? More about Uplay here.

And now watch the presentation because it’s really cool:

Left 4 Dead 2 launch time?

l4d2_blog

You can read from Left 4 Dead 2 blog following:

Due to an ongoing debate in the office and online as to whether “12 AM” means noon or midnight (we’re still sticking with midnight), it’s been more challenging than we realized to tell people when exactly our game will be available. Factor in the Earth rotating around the sun, daylight savings time, some of our fans insisting on using the Mayan calendar, and we’re just going to try and make this as specific as possible:

When L4D2 will go live:

Tuesday, November 17th, 12:00 AM (midnight) Eastern Standard Time

  • Monday, November 16th, 9:00 PM Pacific Standard Time
  • Monday, November 16th, 10:00 PM Mountain Standard Time
  • Monday, November 16th, 11:00 PM Central Standard Time
  • Tuesday, November 17th, 12:00 AM (midnight) Eastern Standard Time
  • Tuesday, November 17th, 5:00 AM Greenwich Mean Time
  • Tuesday, November 17th, 8:00 AM Moscow Time
  • Tuesday, November 17th, 2:00 PM Japan Standard Time

Left 4 Dead 2 release wil be:
