Steam Link Announced, Streams Steam to Living Room

Hot on the heels of the Nvidia Shield announcement, it looks like Steam has something more to bring to the table at GDC beyond their new SteamVR (now known as Vive, a partnered effort with HTC).

Steam Announces New VR Technology at GDC

Valve announced today that not only are they moving forwards with new devices for their “Steam Machines” but will also be adventuring into the world of Virtual Reality. At this year’s GDC Valve/Steam will be showing off a collection of new hardware items to represent the next generation of Steam Machines including a revised take on the controller that made such uproar last year.

TL;DR - Sept 22 - Steam Upgrade, USFIV Omega, 900p Xbone

Hello and good-evening for those late-nighters that have stumbled in upon the return of Shogun Gamer and in specific it’s semi-reoccurring truncation of the news named TL;DR. If you’re joining us here for the first time in this segment the principle is simple enough: There are some news segments that get launched out there that aren’t big enough for our editorialized articles, but we still feel the need to bring to you in some form.

Overkill Software (PayDay: The Heist) Working With Valve On Mystery Project

Collaborations in the video game industry are few and far between these days since studios are naturally competitive and working on mega projects is too much of a gamble for some.  But every now and then we will see two unlikely yet talented forces unit to work on something and today we have confirmation on something that could go on to be the next big thing.

TL;DR - Mar 9 - Durango, SteamBox, Heavy Hitters

First of all, I have to throw out an apology for not getting around to a TL;DR yesterday. Due to an unforeseen migraine I had to 1) bail out of a party early, and 2) bail out of working. Sadface.

Counter-Strike Is Bound For The PSN & XBLA In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

I don’t think anyone expected it to happen, but this little game called Counter-Strike is actually heading to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.  For the past ten years Counter-Strike has been a huge staple of the PC gaming scene and is considered one of the most hardcore PC FPS games on the market.  Considering that Counter-Strike is deeply rooted in certain aspects only available on the PC (constant updates, user-mods), it never seemed like Valve would bring the series over to the consoles, especially considering their somewhat apprehensive attitudes concerning the HD

NECA Reveals Their First Series Of Products Based On Valve's Video Games

Valve is a company that has an extensive roster of franchises with enough unique characters that people desperately want whatever type of merchandise they can featuring those characters.  Unlike other video game companies, Valve hasn’t opted to delve into the video game merchandise front in a huge way as they’ve only featured small things in the past like limited edition statues or highly cute plush Companion Cubes.

Fist-Bump or Bitch-Slap: Valve or EASports

This is the love/hate relationship between the video game industry and myself. Every week I will pick someone who gets my Fist-bump for doing a good deed, someone who gets my undesirable Bitch-Slap for doing something wrong (or just something that pisses me off), and I'll share my experience/opinion along the way.
