How to get a ‘No Man’s Sky’ refund, even if you already played the game

No Man’s Sky has turned out to have some serious flaws that have the internet horde sharpening pitchforks. But rather than trying the time-honored tradition of abusing the developer on Twitter, how about just getting your money back?

This year is a little different. Rather than being a bunch of daily sales, this year’s Steam summer sale is running from now until July 4th, and there are some fantastic deals inside.

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ PC Problems Are a Harsh Reminder that Preorders Suck

By all accounts, Batman: Arkham Knight is both the best game in the series and one of the crowning achievements of the new generation. Every mission feels fresh, every twist feels earned and the Batmobile feels kinda like the Batmobile — but the game is all but unplayable on PC. More →

You can now make money by modding your favorite PC games

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.

Watch the incredible 20-minute short film created inside of Team Fortress 2

Machinima is the art of manipulating a computer graphics engine in order to create a cinematic production. 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.

Gameplay Android App

Cool new app turns your Android phone into a video game controller with gesture support

Cool new app turns your Android phone into a video game controller with gesture support

When it comes to video games, mobile gaming grows more impressive with each new device generation. Controlling a game with on-screen buttons never quite offers the same experience as a physical video game controller though, so it seems odd that Ideum would put so much time and effort into creating an app that transforms an Android smartphone or tablet into a video game controller for PC gaming. The result is quite impressive, however, and it actually adds some nifty functionality that standard gaming controllers simply cannot offer. More →
