The modding community has been growing steadily ever since the dawn of PC gaming, but only in recent years has the idea of paying for user-created content become a reality.
Valve has been leading the charge with the Steam Workshop, giving Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 modders the opportunity to share their creations with a large audience, but starting this week, modders will be able to start setting their own prices for those creations and selling them directly to consumers.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out on PC for a week now, and despite a few technical hiccups during the first few days, the critical and commercial reaction has been outstanding. Rockstar Games is getting an unprecedented amount of mileage out of GTA 5, but do you really need a second, or possibly third copy of the game?
Surprising no one, Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a smashing debut on PC, quickly becoming the most played third-party game on Steam just days after its release.

This art form was popularized in the mainstream by Red vs. Blue, a Halo machinima series that has been running since 2003. Not long ago, Valve decided to give its community the ability to make their own home movies with the Source Filmmaker software.
There have been plenty of impressive productions since then, but this past weekend, we were treated to one of the best yet.
One of the most anticipated PC games of 2015 already came out on PS3 and Xbox 360 two years ago. That’s right, I’m talking about Grand Theft Auto V, the perpetually delayed bestseller that’s finally coming to PC later this month. For some people, an upgrade to the PC version will be the second or third time they’ve bought the game, so why spend another $60?
