It’s time once again for the Steam Summer Sale, the time of the year at which all games are put at sale prices the likes of which you may not have a chance to avoid. And of course no more than 20 minutes after the push began, the Steam Store is down. Don't worry, don't freak out - everything that's there now will still be there 7 hours later.
Valve's Steam Machines may be delayed until 2015, but that could just give manufacturers time to coax Steam OS onto more unusual hardware, such as the SteamBoy handheld quietly announced at E3 2014. Built around a 5-inch touchscreen, the SteamBoy Machine squeezes a PC into a portable form-factor, for playing games through Valve's digital distribution service on the go.
Valve is delaying its Steam Machine to 2015, and naturally there will be repercussions, especially when it comes to its hardware partners. One of the first fallouts is Alienware, whose Alpha console-type gaming PC will still be shipping during the holiday season, but won't be using SteamOS as intended.
There’s a teaser trailer now for DOOM (or DOOM 4), a game that might not appear before the end of the year is up.

The much awaited, and perhaps long delayed, version of Rockstar's record-breaking game is finally heading to town. After enjoying a successful run on the PS3 and Xbox 360, Grand Theft Auto V will soon be available on the current generation Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles, as well as the PC.
If you expected anything less than a picked-and-prodded mini-movie for the next Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain trailer, you don’t know Hideo Kojima. This trailer takes up where the game Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes left off, making certain you understand that this universe isn’t about to get smaller.
This afternoon the folks at DICE, Visceral Games, and Electronic Arts have released the Battlefield Hardline Beta for all to join in on. This is a closed Beta, which means not everyone in the world is invited in, but is also open in the sense that you’ll be able to stream your gameplay live and upload gameplay videos at will.
