Steam Deck teardown tells you exactly how to be bad

Steam Deck teardown tells you exactly how to be bad

Today the folks at Valve went ahead and tore down their next-generation portable gaming device Steam Deck. The Valve Steam Deck is not exactly like your average DIY PC build. Instead, it's more like... you COULD open it up, but you probably shouldn't. Valve's video is like a parent saying to a child: I know this looks fun, but DON'T do it.

After something of an extended wait, the Hearth & Home update for Valheim is arriving today. While we've seen various teasers for the Hearth & Home - which is Valheim's first major content update post-launch - today's patch notes reveal most of what's new. Even then, though, it looks like the developers at Iron Gate want us to discover most of the additions on our own, as the patch notes are fairly broad.

Well, I’m addicted to Cookie Clicker again

Well, I’m addicted to Cookie Clicker again

For several years now, I've been a fan of incremental and idle games. My fondness for this genre has a very clear starting point, and it's one I'm sure I share with many people: Cookie Clicker. I played Cookie Clicker a lot shortly after it was first released as a browser game in 2013, and though I played it for quite some time, I eventually fell out of it. Earlier this week, Cookie Clicker launched on Steam, and like a moth to a flame, I've returned for this new release.

Steam return policy forces independent developer out of business

Steam return policy forces independent developer out of business

When it comes to buying video games for PC, one of the favorite places for gamers is Steam. There are many reasons why gamers like to use Steam, and one of them is because it has a return policy that allows you to get a refund on any game you don't like as long as you played it for less than two hours. The idea behind the return policy is to encourage gamers to try independent games without fear of being stuck with a game that doesn't work or that they don't like.

Switch exclusive Bravely Default II is coming to Steam

Earlier this year, we saw Square Enix bring back the Bravely Default series with the release of Bravely Default II on the Switch.

It seems that Bravely Default II will break that trend, with Square Enix announcing today that the game is coming to PC.

Valheim’s long-awaited Hearth & Home update finally gets a release date

Valheim’s long-awaited Hearth & Home update finally gets a release date

Valheim took the gaming world by storm when it launched earlier this year, as it was remarkably well polished and full of content for an early access game. When Valheim launched, its developers revealed a rather ambitious content roadmap that promised multiple major content updates on a rather tight timeline. As it turns out, that roadmap was a little too ambitious and developer Iron Gate had to extend it somewhat, but now we finally have the release date for Valheim's first major post-launch update: Hearth & Home.
