77,000 Steam accounts stolen every month, according to Valve

Have you ever had an online account hacked? Thankfully I can say that I haven't, at any point. Sure, I've gotten notices from sites I use telling me that they've had some sort of breach, and to change my password. However, I've never had anyone access any of my accounts.

This week we've received a glass cube with a "hologram" of a smartphone inside - it's an invitation to an event at CES 2016.

It's been more than 8 years since we've seen any additions to the Half Life series. Half Life 2: Episode 2 left us with a cliffhanger that has yet to get any resolution. While it's becoming less and less clear that we'll ever see the ending of that story, let's talk about the game that was supposed to come after Episode 3. That's right, Episode 4 was already in the works years ago, and we've got some interesting new screenshots of it.

Steam Controller iFixit teardown reveals highly repairable modular design

While the teardown experts iFixit have been busy lately with a number of new Apple products, they've found time to open up and offer a peek inside the Steam Controller, Valve's new gaming accessory that offers a completely different experience with its dual trackpads. iFixit found that at first glance the internal components weren't that different from what in other standard gaming controllers these days, but they came away very pleased with how little glue was used and how easy it could be repaired.

Steam finally lets you permanently delete games from your library

Valve's Steam has turned into a behemoth of a digital marketplace for PC games, selling just about any title that sees release today. That means some gamers have amassed huge collections, including games they may never play again, or never really wanted in the first place, whether they were bundle extras or redeemed gifts. Unfortunately, Steam has never really made it an option to delete a game from a user's library. Until today.

SteamOS suffers massive performance hits over Windows 10

You have to admit that Valve is a pretty interesting company when it comes to the world of gaming. They could have easily just been another great game developer with a strange fascination with hats.

This started with their release of the Steam client, and more recently by developing an entire OS just for playing games. But how well do games perform on their SteamOS?

Steam Controller configured to allow disabled gamer play Skyrim with one hand

The Steam Controller especially allows levels of customization never seen before, and one user demonstrates this by creating a layout for playing the hit game Skyrim with one hand, fulfilling a request from another disabled player.
