Steam: Watch out for false VAC bans!

There is a huge problem with Valve Anti-Cheat system at the moment. It seems that they have enabled a brand new manual rule that triggers a VAC ban on certain Steam accounts. If you launch Steam on Linux with an account name (OS account, not Steam account!) that contains "Catbot" you WILL be banned on Steam. Permanently. Why does that even happen? It's because of a certain Team Fortress 2…

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…

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare: You won’t be able to play with Steam players if you bought the game on Windows Store

I have no idea who the fuck thought that's a good idea but according to Activision's support page you won't be able to play online with your friends who bought the game on Steam or Windows Store. You either have to own one or another to play with your friends! Also you can't even play between Windows 10 and Xbox One players. So you're probably out of luck if you bought…

Game developer Digital Homicide banned by Valve!

Ever heard of Wyatt Derp? No? It's fine, I bet most of us haven't but the guys who created the game decided to sue 100 gamers who posted negative reviews on Steam. For $18 million! Yep. The have a history of suing, especially game critic Jim Sterling (from YouTube) with a ridiculous $10 million lawsuit for posting rude video reviews of their games since 2014. They were pretty fun to watch!…

Bethesda to release it’s own launcher to sell mods?

Apparently there is an alpha version of a launcher for Bethesda games. It has Fallout 4 creation kit and even a Mods tab at the top. Check out some screenshots: [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent="yes" overflow="visible"][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type="1_1" background_position="left top" background_color="" border_size="" border_color="" border_style="solid" spacing="yes" background_image="" background_repeat="no-repeat" padding="" margin_top="0px" margin_bottom="0px" class="" id="" animation_type="" animation_speed="0.3" animation_direction="left" hide_on_mobile="no" center_content="no" min_height="none"] Do we really need another game launcher aside from Steam, Origin, UPlay, Battle.net, GOG (optional)? They really…

Poll Time: Do you like DOOM Open Beta?

I wasn’t expecting much of this multiplayer beta. Actually I even forgot about it, launched it this morning and I was really surprised to see how much of a Call of Duty clone this is. Seriously, dance moves at the end of a match? Announcer that sounds like a pussy (at least in Polish translation)? It just plain fucking sucks.

This is a disaster, feels like a bad Unreal Tournament copy (it’s on Unreal Engine 4) but 2 times slower. You can’t even adjust the settings reasonably although the game runs perfectly fine on my GTX 960, the FPS is locked to 60. Lets just hope that the single player experience is going to be a lot better – do not pre-order though. What do you guys think?

Here are some more screenshots:

[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]

Stick to Unreal Tournament open alpha if you’re looking for a good, modern arena shooter.

Steam is now selling mods!? WTF!

It seems that you can now buy mods for Skyrim on Steam, check this page out. Also there is a whole thread on reddit here, people claim that some mods were already stolen and someone posted them as their own... This is so not cool at all and I think it's safe to say that most gamers are disappointed with this business decision. More to this games have updates, mods might not have…

Dying Light: Techland doesn’t like mods

The last Dying Light patch has made it much harder to mod the game. According to the patch notes, the change “blocked cheating by changing game’s data files”, which is good for multiplayer – but it has also affected innocent single-player mods or LAN games. According to Reddit users, DMCA takedowns have been issued on Dying Lights mods hosted on media sharing websites. The mods affected were suppose to remove the film grain…

E3: Amazing experience for the first time ever! WTF

That was sarcasm indeed. Are you watching the E3 right now? Have you seen Xbox and EA conference? Microsoft didn't show anything good (a Halo remake? really? that's it? no PC love?), EA had some good moments with Sims 4, the new Dragon Age and possibly another Mass Effect game - skipping all that sport games, not into that. And by the way why the fuck are the guys on SPIKE…
