Steam Controller orders being refunded as stocks run out completely

If you haven't heard the news yet, Valve has been clearing out its inventory of Steam Controllers by selling at its cheapest possible price (excluding shipping and taxes). But if you were still planning on getting one, perhaps for posterity's sake, you can forget getting it at that low price.

Steam Autumn Sale 2019 kicks off with Steam Awards nominations

Just as the rumors foretold, Steam has kicked off its 2019 Autumn Sale. The Autumn Sale has become an expected event every year, sandwiched in between the Halloween sale Valve typically runs and the Winter Sale that ends the year (and often sees us into the next one). While the Autumn Sale is usually just a precursor to the much larger Winter Sale, there is one reason to pull up the Steam store even if you're not looking to spend anything.

Half-Life: Alyx is Valve’s flagship VR game whatever that means

Valve is perhaps best known for the Steam PC gaming store and platform but it is perhaps a lesser known fact that it has also developed and published a few games, including the famous Half-Life franchise. It is, however, also infamous for being unable to follow up on its ow promises of sequels, particularly in completing trilogies. The company is now stirring up the waters by announcing what it says is its flagship VR game. But, no, Half-Life: Alyx might not be the Half-Life 3 fans were promised many moons ago.

Steam Cloud Gaming could challenge Google Stadia, Microsoft xCloud

Cloud-powered game streaming is really nothing new but Google's announcement of its Stadia service put the technology back in the headlines.
