Newell talks Big Picture Mode, teases “turnkey” Valve PCs for living rooms

Despite the relatively simple idea, it would appear that Big Picture Mode has taken off, with Valve boss Gabe Newell telling Kotaku that the response from users has been "stronger than expected."

Skyrim Dragonborn DLC confirmed for PS3 and PC [UPDATE]

Earlier today, we told you about a ridiculous amount of leaked Dragonborn details, but now we're getting some news that is perhaps even bigger.

Crysis 3 PC requirements land, get ready to upgrade

For years now, we've used the Crysis series to determine how good a PC is at a glance, with enthusiasts today still asking "But can it run Crysis?" when you bring up your PC's technical specifications. It looks like Crysis 3 will continue the series' trend of demanding a lot of power, as Electronic Arts has released the PC requirements for the incoming game.

It would appear that THQ's investors like this idea a whole bunch, because THQ's stock ended the day up a whopping 37.96%.

It's been a major sticking point for a lot of gamers who don't want to see single player modes become less important, but thankfully, not all publishers and developers have been bitten by the multiplayer bug.
