Steam charts: autumn sale edition

Hey ho, chart fans, let's go. Statman John is indisposed today, and was last seen meandering along the seafront muttering "Plunkbat! They give me Plunkbat! I've a grand idea for a grand theft five five fi-diddly-fi fi whoopsadaisy down we go," so I'm taking over for this week's Steam charts. Seeing as he's always griping about the charts being identical, I'm sure John will be…

Steam Charts: Further Adventures In Firearms & Fantasy

It's yer regular round-up of what shifted the most copies on Steam over the previous week. Last week, Total Warhammer was dark master of all it surveyed, but a bug-eyed old friend has displaced it after just one week...

One Month On: Valve’s Steam Controller Tweaks

Cara's gone for a wee nap (we're full of Christmas cheer), so I'm free to talk about something secret without ruining the magic: where toys really come from. We saw Elf on Wednesday (and Krampus last night - it's good!) but, turns out, toys are not made by Will Ferrell at the North Pole. Valve have made a video showing where Steam Controllers come from,…

RPS Asks: What Do You Think Of The Steam Controller And The Steam Link?

The first Steam Controllers and Steam Links are being delivered to those who pre-ordered. I received mine on Friday and spent a few moments this weekend playing with them. We're not yet ready to offer reviews of either, but that doesn't mean we can't have a nice chat about it. Do you have a Link or a Controller? If so, what do you think?

Steam Controllers Due November 10th At £40/$49.99

I've heard good things about Valve's Steam Controller gamepad from folks who've had a play on one, including our John, but I've still been sceptical. Can even fancy touchpads with haptic feedback come close to being okay as a mouse substitute? Watching a new demonstration video from Valve, I must say it looks better than I'd expected. Oh, also: Valve have announced that it'll cost…

Feature: Full Steam Ahead (I'm Fired)

Hands On With Valve’s Hardware Bonanza

Sitting down with Valve's Eric Johnson this morning, one thing seemed to become increasingly clear. Valve, a studio that has arguably been pretty quiet of late (not least with the failure to ship Steam Machines in 2014), is coming to life again. With a slew of announcements at this year's GDC, the HTC-tech-incorporating VR Vive, a proper announcement of Source 2, in-home streaming tech in…

Science Victory: Civilization 5 Now On SteamOS And Linux

Is... Is this E3 news? On day three, I can't tell anymore. Did Sid Meier swing on a trapeze across the E3 concourse to announce that Civilization 5 was now available on SteamOS and Linux? Did Aspyr gather the world's press in an art deco theatre to reveal that this was their first Linux port, after years of porting popular games to Mac? Or is…

Gabenship Down: Steam Controller Delayed To 2015

Calm your consoles. Give your Blu-ray/DVD/VHS (???) a soothing pat. Tell your ottoman it can stop whimpering in the closest. Your living room is safe - for now. Valve's takeover plans have been pushed back to next year, as steady Steam Machine testing progress has revealed just how far the little Linux box/controller that could still has left to go. The controller won't be out…

About Face (Buttons): Steam Controller Overhauled

Steam, monopolizing all the news? What are you talking about? STEAM IS THE NEWS. The two have become one, a pulsating mutant announcement machine - or announcemutant for short. The latest and greatest? Word from Steam Dev Days is that Valve's revealed the first big overhaul of its (somewhat finicky) beta controller. Say goodbye to that touch screen that never actually saw the light of…

Feature: Not Exactly A Hoot

Watch Us Critique Valve’s Steam Controller

Valve's robot owl Steam controller has been the talk of the town since the town learned to talk, but talk is cheap. While attending Valve's recent CES Steam Machine event, I realized I had light and a camera, so it was time for action. Go below to watch me comment on (and gripe about) a beta Steam controller's many, er, eccentric ins and outs while…

Valve Announce Steam Machines With Specs And Prices

The Consumer Electronics Show is happening in Las Vegas right now, which is a lot like E3 but full of televisions and Michael Bay instead of videogames. There is at least one thing there of interest to us, though: Valve have been revealing the first concrete details of their Steam Machine partners, including the 14 manufacturers currently making them and the specs and prices of…
