Antichamber releases on Steam today

Price is unannounced at this time, but it’s worth a look.  Check out the trailer.

A 2,800+ player battle in EVE Online from the yesterday.  Details.


Mass Effect mod for Star Wars Battlefront 2 (x)

Thank you to lady-z13 for showing off how nice ME1 can look with mods.  Finally got everything running and started a run so I would have save files for making gifs.

Valve has apparently been working with Xi3 to develop a computer gaming machine for use on TVs that will connect to Steam.  The picture above is one of Xi3’s products, but the “Steambox” (as communities have called the oft-rumored device) will likely have a similar outward appearance.  The device will be officially unveiled at CES.


Remember Me 

Check out these In-game fight sequence screenshots of the upcoming game, Remember Me. Also, click here to check out the latest trailer showcasing gameplay and the combo lab feature. 

I’ll probably be spamming this forever, okay?

Computers at UNC. I’m not a student, so I couldn’t log into one for a real screenshot.

Never obsolete!

Dragon Age is on sale on Amazon.  You can get the digital version of Origins Ultimate Edition & Dragon Age 2 for only $10.  Other versions on sale, too.

Five great games (plus soundtracks), you set the price, the money goes to charities or the developers (your choice), and you can pay an extra dollar for the Steam version.

Why are you still here?

Star Wars: The Old Republic is set to launch in the US on December 20th.  (Decemeber 22nd elsewhere)

1) Plan to announce release date three weeks before launch
2) GameStop stores unofficially sets release on Nov 22
3) Announcing release date at end of October
4) WoW launched Tuesday before Thanksgiving

Oh shi-

Due to the design constraints of a fully voiced MMO of this scale and size, many choices had to be made as to the launch and post-launch feature set. Same gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature. Because The Old Republic is an MMO, the game will live on through content expansions which allow us to include content and features that could not be included at launch, including the addition of more companion characters who will have additional romance options.
