Valve is overhauling Steam broadcasting. After accidentally launching Steam TV on Friday, Valve has officially rolled out the platform for DOTA 2 and plans to do so for all games in the near future.

Helping Hand Is A Clever Idea That Falls Flat Helping Hand Is A Clever Idea That Falls Flat

Helping Hand begins with your character getting into a car accident and smashing almost every bone in their body. In the game, you can only communicate with your left hand. It’s more interesting than actually being in a full-body cast, but not by much.

Overwatch World Cup Match Grinds To A Halt When Game Crashes

The primary ingredients for a great Overwatch moment are a) a hotly contested match and b) a cheeky strategy the other team doesn’t see coming. During the fourth game of last night’s Overwatch World Cup match between South Korea and Finland, both these things happened. Then the game crashed.

Cops Show Up At Popular YouTuber's Door Looking For His Elon Musk Flamethrower Cops Show Up At Popular YouTuber's Door Looking For His Elon Musk Flamethrower

Popular YouTuber Tom “ProSyndicate” Cassell just wants to own a flamethrower. Or well, technically it’s a “Not A Flamethrower,” a glorified propane torch mystifyingly produced by that one Elon Musk company that digs tunnels. Police in Cassell’s home of Manchester, England, however, don’t love it.

The Diablo III Switch Port Took Nine Months The Diablo III Switch Port Took Nine Months

It’s official: Diablo III is coming to Switch. Later this year, you’ll be able to cosplay as Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda and kick the crap out of Diablo from Diablo. It’s the first Blizzard game on a Nintendo platform in 15 years, but fortunately, Blizzard had help.

Last year, Adam Winger, the director of the North Logan City library in Utah, resigned for reasons that were not immediately clear. Now things have become a teensy bit clearer: He’s been found guilty of spending $89,000 in public money on mobile game sensation Game of War.

Opponents Logan Paul Should Fight In The UFC, Ranked Opponents Logan Paul Should Fight In The UFC, Ranked

Next week, YouTuber of suicide forest infamy Logan Paul will step into the ring for his first-ever boxing match against marginally more experienced YouTuber-turned-boxer KSI. The fight will be hilariously bad. So of course, people are already talking about Paul’s promising future as a UFC fighter.

Ninja Should Stream With Women Ninja Should Stream With Women

During a recent Samsung event, Twitch megastar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins said he purposely avoids streaming with “female gamers.” The site’s number-one streamer said that he believes if he invited women on his channel, the gossip mill would immediately begin cranking out videos suggesting that Ninja is in romantic…

Twitch Streamer Unbans Fan After They Write 1,000 Word Apology Letter Twitch Streamer Unbans Fan After They Write 1,000 Word Apology Letter

A few days ago, Fortnite streamer Ben “DrLupo” Lupo found himself in a situation that’s become regrettably common on Twitch. A subscriber called him “cancer.” He banned them, but with a caveat: if they wrote an apology letter, they could come back.

The Keemstar vs Fortnite saga continues. Today Keem protested Epic’s Fortnite Summer Skirmish with a campaign to get Minecraft more Twitch viewers. Keem said that it might be a “big fail,” and it kinda was. While Keem’s chat yelled at him for playing wrong, Minecraft peaked at over 20,000. Fortnite had 230,000. It was…

No Man’s Sky’s Opening Hours Are Still A Slog No Man’s Sky’s Opening Hours Are Still A Slog

I hadn’t booted up No Man’s Sky in more than a year when I first dove into the recent Next update. I had an old save littered with dim memories and obsolete technology, but I decided I was gonna do things right: I was gonna start anew. I now regret my decision.

Hammond Debuts In Overwatch Pro Scene, With Mixed Results Hammond Debuts In Overwatch Pro Scene, With Mixed Results

Despite his penchant for crashing into the thick of things and leaving craters in his wake, Wrecking Ball has yet to make a huge impact on Overwatch’s meta. Then again, he only just got added to the game. Last night, though, the hamster hero showed squeaky inklings of his potential in two Overwatch Contenders playoff…

Discord Is Launching Its Own Curated Game Store Discord Is Launching Its Own Curated Game Store

Back in June, ubiquitous chat company Discord launched a games tab that bore a slight resemblance to Steam’s front page. Now it’s launching its own store that resolutely refutes Steam’s anything-goes approach.

No Man's Sky Has Griefers, But Tools To Keep Them Out Are On The Way No Man's Sky Has Griefers, But Tools To Keep Them Out Are On The Way

Even with all its recent Next update additions, No Man’s Sky is still mostly a game about exploration for exploration’s sake. It makes a perverse sort of sense, then, that within that framework people would also find a way to grief purely for the thrill and power of it.

Why Video Game Characters Almost Never Remove Their Clothes Why Video Game Characters Almost Never Remove Their Clothes

Video game graphics are quickly becoming astonishing simulacra of reality. We can roam unimaginable lands, interact with believable characters, and punch Nazis until they’re covered in lifelike injuries. And yet, video games still struggle to show someone taking off their clothes.
