Valve's Dota 2 documentary Free to Play has finally appeared on Steam. The premiere was held in San Francisco, and was followed by a live broadcast via Twitch TV service. Free to Play follows three professional Dota 2 players, Danil "Dendi" Ishutin, Benedict "HyHy" Lim and Clinton "Fear" Loomis, their preparation, and finally participation in the first iteration of the now famous tournament The International.

Carmageddon: Reincarnation recently got into the hands of a small number of users who have funded the development of the game through Kickstarter. Specifically, access to the game was recently opened exclusively for people who have donated for the development $25 or more, and are therefore provided an opportunity to try out a new, but equally bloodthirsty Carmageddon two weeks before everyone else.

When Microsoft announced Windows 8 there were many consumers and people in the industry that raise their eyebrows. Here was an OS designed to integrate with Microsoft cloud services and gaming products. It seemed like a bad move for Microsoft as it put them in competition with many companies that developed games and software for the PC. Still some held out that even though Windows 8 would be more integrated into the Microsoft Eco system than ever it would not mean they could not use whatever software or application they wanted. Microsoft even seemed to confirm this in a few of their building Windows 8 blog posts.

Valve's Steam users earlier this week were allowed to enter their own tags in the games available on the greatest service for digital distribution of games. With that move they showed, wheter it was accidentally or intentionally, that they believe too much to "the internet".

Virutal Reality games on Steam

Valve's Joe Ludwig via Steam Community said that the Steam client recently added experimental support for VR mode. The whole thing is designed for owners of Oculus Rift, and is linked with the upcoming conference Steam Dev Days, in which Valve plans to present their toolset for creating VR software.

Microsoft's Marc Whitten is not worried by recent arrival of Steam Machines on the market, primarily because he believes that it is not a classic home console, which is why they will not pose a direct competition.

CES 2014 – Las Vegas, Nevada. As we mentioned in another article it seems that CES is living up to its name as it becomes more and more about consumer electronics (gadgets, TVs, Mobile etc) and the computer industry moves into the background. So with that in mind, just what is going to be the “big thing” at CES 2014? Will we see something PC related as the darling of the show or will we find another item that steals interest and what everyone will be talking about.

Steam Holiday Sale starts on December 19th

Every year, Valve organizes big holiday sale that many gamers eagerly await in order to get that one title they want to play or to fill collection, and at this special time, they can get it for much less money than usual.

It has finally happened, a fairly large game developer has decided to release their game without any DRM (Digital Rights Management). For years the concept of DRM has been all about preventing piracy. Sadly the more money that companies put into their DRM the more the games end up costing. This rapidly rising cost perpetuates piracy even more. It is true that a large number of people that download games online end up buying the, but it still has an initial impact.
