Steam is down, and it’s a little funky

Steam is down, and it’s a little funky

Over the past hour or so Steam has been a bit shaky. Valve is currently working on the problem, but as this article is written, just about half of Singapore is offline (3 of 6 servers, as it were) while 59 of 62 servers are up. 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.

The next Halo title will be a spiritual successor to Halo: Spartan Assault, but this time it’ll be coming with a single release schedule. In this case, it means you’ll be able to purchase it once, on one platform, and you’ll own it on the rest. You’ll be able to save the same in one location and pick up in another. This game will be released on Windows 8, Windows Phone, and through Steam (still on Windows) this December - very soon, that is.

Alien: Isolation is just the first of the age of Terror Games

Alien: Isolation is just the first of the age of Terror Games

When I played Alien: Isolation for the first time, I got sick to my stomach. It was a physical necessity that I stop playing - and I hadn’t even seen the Alien itself yet. Now is the next age of the horror game. Not just horror for the gamer - not just a place where you can get out an tune out. Instead you’re trapped in a space station with the perfect organism, one that cannot be killed, one that’s never been so real to you as it is here and now, discovering you having a nervous breakdown in a staff locker.

Alien: Isolation Review

Alien: Isolation Review

Either you’re going to love this game or you’re going to hate it. There’s a lot riding on elements of fandom, terror, and gameplay here. You really have to ask yourself a few questions before you take the plunge. We really should make a flowchart for you in deciding whether or not to allow yourself to experience this game, starting with the key - have you seen the original ALIEN film?

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Skeptical was what I was when I began playing Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. When you attempt to transfer a beloved, storied universe from one media to the other, you’re under a lot more scrutiny than you’d be if you’d started fresh. But like Alejandro Jodorowsky said about Dune, you have to disrespect your source material if you want to successfully create new life. Behold: Shadow of Mordor.
