Peter Molyneux is not actually retiring, Godus remains

Peter Molyneux is not actually retiring, Godus remains

In what was either a momentary hacking or a brilliant use of PR, Peter Molyneux seemed to have been retiring for about 20 minutes this afternoon. In the moments after Molyneux's Twitter confirmed that he'd be taking the game Godus down from Steam AND he'd be retiring from the game industry, major news sources aplenty jumped on the opportunity to report. Not 13 minutes later, Molyneux appeared to have regained control over his Twitter account, suggesting he'd been hacked.

Atari Vault brings 100 classic games to Steam

There was a time when Atari was the biggest name in video games. Sadly, the company has changed hands so many times that it's hard to even call it the same company we once knew and loved. But the games that they made back in the day are still fun to look back on, and soon you'll have a new way to play them.

Valve adds 100 Gbps connections to keep up with download demands

When you decide that your internet speeds just aren't enough to keep up with modern entertainment, you talk to your ISP and they change you over to a different package.

But what do you do if you're one of the largest digital game providers?

Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Climbing Mount Everest with the HTC Vive Pre VR headset

Virtual reality is a strange place to visit, particularly when that virtual reality is a mountain you’ve never been to in person. At CES this week, NVIDIA showed off the HTC Vive Pre VR headset with a Mount Everest demonstration -- that is, a snowy digital landscape very carefully created to simulate the real thing, tents and all. Of course, imparting the climbing experience in virtual reality is not really possible, at least not in the absence of a stepping machine and air conditioner. Making you feel as if you might plunge down an icefall abyss, though? They nailed that part.

HP has officially teamed up with HTC to deliver a PC that they suggest is "certified virtual reality (VR) ready" - for the HTC VIVE specifically.

HTC Vive Pre steps into AR land with front-facing camera

No, Vive Pre isn't the retail name of HTC's and Valve's virtual reality headset. The "Pre" there actually means "pre-release". What HTC is, in fact, announcing is the second generation of the developer edition of the Vive gear, both the headset as well as the controllers, featuring not just new designs but new abilities as well. In particular, the headset gets a new integrated outward front (outward) facing camera that lets it blend virtual and actual reality, taking the Vive into the realm of augmented reality and slightly closer to Microsoft's HoloLens.

Street Fighter V is coming to SteamOS, will support Steam Controller

While Valve has done a lot of work trying to push their SteamOS, it's still far from popular.
