Game ‘Hatred’ pulled from Steam Greenlight

Game ‘Hatred’ pulled from Steam Greenlight

Hatred, the controversial game that tries really hard to be really bad in an edgy sort of way, was pulled from Steam Greenlight a couple hours after it went live. The game has earned itself a fair bit of criticism recently over its premise, which is largely senseless violence for the sake of violence (aka, hatred). The game's developer Destructive Creations has said it respects Valve's decision to pull the game, and that it'll continue pushing forward with the title despite this setback.

That's exactly what they're doing right this minute with Steam Broadcasting, coming your way in Beta form as early as this afternoon. Steam Broadcasting appears, for now, to be sort of the opposite model Twitch is running. You'll have only to find a friend, click the "Watch Game" button, and wait to be let in.

Of course even a single server down results in someone realizing it and flipping out, so it's time! It's time to watch the madness unfold.

Paranautical Activity creator resigns after making death threat

Paranautical Activity creator resigns after making death threat

In case you missed it, a bit of hoopla surfaced earlier this week revolving around Steam, the game Paranautical Activity, and the game's rage-prone creator Mike Maulbeck. The final version of Paranautical Activity was released on Steam on Monday, but some snafu resulted in the game's page showing it as "Early Access". This frightened Maulbeck, who was worried that still being dubbed Early Access would "cripple" the game's success. Rather than dealing with the problem like an adult, Maulbeck resorted to raging -- something that resulted in a death threat, the game being pulled, and, more recently, the creator resigning from the company.
