Play EVE Online for freeJust a few days ago, we awoke to news so unexpected that it made me check I hadn’t time-traveled to April 1st: EVE Online developer CCP Games is being bought by Black Desert Online studio Pearl Abyss for a total of $425 million USD. The news immediately kicked the EVE Online community into a frenzy, with most people’s gut reactions being overwhelmingly negative. Black Desert is known for its aggressive monetisation strategies and many EVE Online players were understandably worried that Pearl Abyss would try to force the same strategy onto EVE. CCP Games and Pearl Abyss have obviously been very positive about the buyout, with both companies issuing statements about the exciting new opportunities they see in working together. CCP has also been pretty quick to get a handle on the community discussion surrounding the deal, answering some questions on twitter and holding a Q&A thread on the EVE forum Friday nightt. The player-elected Council … [Read more...] about EVE Evolved: What could the sale of CCP Games mean for EVE Online?

Years ago, my crew looked forward to Steam sales, not for the insipid minigames but for the flash sales. They constituted a minigame all on their own, as we checked back on Steam over and over, hunting for the best deal. Of course, as VG247 points out, plenty of people hated these sales, suffering from buyer’s remorse if the game they got for 50% off was 66% off the following day. Consequently, many people just waited until the last day of the sale to buy anything, and then sometimes missed out. Then when Valve made refunds much easier, it did away with these types of events altogether, presumably because it figured people would refund and rebuy to get a lower price. But I’m a bargain-hunter, so I loved it, and I loved the camaraderie that swirled around sharing the deals too. Without those sales, I make my list of Steam sales on the first day for MOP, buy a couple of things, and never go back or even think about the sale again. And if you’re on my side, you’ll … [Read more...] about Steam’s old flash sales might be making a comeback
Every Steam sale is the best of times and the worst of times. The best of times for us and the worst of times for our wallets, and all the games we should be playing. What’s that? I have a brand new copy of Persona 5 I still haven’t touched? That’s cool and all but what can I buy now. I don’t know about you but the first thing I do during a Steam sale (right after apologizing to my bank account) is to click on the under $5 list on Steam. Because if you’re spending less than $5 for a game..are you spending any money at all? I mean, are you really? Not just that but there is a special sense of satisfaction I get out of paying less than $5 for a game that could potentially entertainment me for hundreds of hours. Or 1. I mean it’s not like I’ve even played half of the Steam games I own. So in honor of thrifty consumerism, here are 5 games under $5 that you should pick up during this year’s Steam Summer Sale. There are technically more than 5 … [Read more...] about Top 5 Games Under $5 To Grab During The Summer Steam Sale
