Steam is doing strange things at the moment. It seems they were/are being DDoS'ed, and whatever is going on, it's causing people to see private information on others accounts.

Yup, looks like some big screw-ups.

Steam DB (not affiliated with Valve) said that attempts to log in and alter/remove credit card and PayPal info is not recommended, in that the cacheing would put one at risk instead.

It seems the best thing right now is to treat Steam like the Arc of the Covenant: don't look or go to any URLs, wait and see what happens.

Steam fixed it sometime last night/this morning and gave an "official response" to a few websites.

Steam is back up and running without any known issues. As a result of a configuration change earlier today, a caching issue allowed some users to randomly see pages generated for other users for a period of less than an hour. This issue has since been resolved. We believe no unauthorized actions were allowed on accounts beyond the viewing of cached page information and no additional action is required by users.

And yet several hours ago Steam Community went down, so I'm still skeptical that Valve might be trying to sweep this under the rug to not disrupt holiday sales...

the senior director for the new mass effect game left mid development. Take what you will from it, but usually when I see this happening I don't see it as a good sign for the game involved.

Yesterday Nintendo unveiled the plans for their newest console at E3, the NX.

Other than this there's not much else.
Is there anyone rich enough to keep up with Nintendo anymore? :P

Still can't believe how little news there is for this game...it should have way more hype to justify frequent updates.

The new Hitman game is planned to be released as a series of episodes.

I heard a lot of negative press about it, described as a way to sell a game before it's finished and to milk more cash from consumers.  I'm aware that games such as Life Is Strange have done this before, so I guess my main concern is more how Square-Enix will do it.  As a AAA publisher in the industry and its previous installments released as whole games, I don't think it's due to budgeting issues.

I know that this is 6 days old, but better late than never.  John Romero released a new level for Doom.

Yeah... I see each time it gets delayed and go, "Glad I didn't give them money." o.0

Afraid this is the first I've heard of it.  I never got into the franchise, so I'm not very hyped, but hope it's a good game.  Apparently it has a May release date.



Someone remade one of Undertale's most iconic battles in Super Mario Maker.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Most Likely Being Pushed to Early 2017

Did anyone not see this coming? I knew there was a reason I wasn't anticipating this game in 2016. XD

What's it about?

Sci-Fi exploration/survival game with MMO-lite features. They have a large number of systems(18 quintillion, apparently) and each of these systems is procedurally generated. Which is usually code phrase for 'boring, bland, unorginal' buuuutt... I've been following closely and I was sort of caught off-guard by how plausible some of the procedurally generated planets/systems are, some of them are quite imaginative and I started to like the game. I haven't actually played it, but I do know the basics - while it's a great big sandbox you share with other players, the entire point of the game is to survive and make it to the center of the universe - you do this by collecting resources, upgrading your ship, suit, etc. Naturally it's not as easy as it sounds, but the other big draw for me is how it's all seamless transition from space to atmosphere and back.

I'd link a few videos or even the announcement link, but I can't until I'm approved. Polygon has a few good articles or even GameInformer has a pretty well rounded preview of the game.  I'm sure a lot of other sites do as well, just two I frequent.

Time to dust off the Warthog it appears. Nice. Lets hope it is more engaging over the long term than Elite is.

I was not a big fan of Elite, I think I put maybe two hours in and decided that game wasn't for me. I would consider this lighter and more forgiving in term of mechanics. The only game of this scope on my radar is Star Citizen, so hoping this will feed the need.

I think Star Citizen is... to big to be viable. If that makes any sense.
