What It Will Look Like To Play Games On Valve’s Steam Box (Videos)
The Movie God   |  

Steam Box/Steam Machine Console and Controller

For those who are not yet aware, the popular digital PC gaming platform from Valve Corporation, Steam, is making the jump to consoles in what hopes to be the future of gaming. A console for PC gamers with PC graphics that is known as Steam Box or Steam Machine.

It won’t be until sometime next year when we can get our hands on one, and it’s not yet known how much one will run you, but early versions of the system have been sent out for testing to current Steam users. One such user has been documenting their experience on YouTube, giving us a solid look at multiple games and what they could look like on the console, as well as what it looks like using the Steam Box controller.

Click on over to the other side now to see the Steam Box/Steam Machine and its controller in action, and be sure to share your thoughts on how the system is looking and if you’ll buy one!

Top 5 Essentials For The Ultimate Gamer Cave
Your Highness   |  

Gamer Cave

So you’ve managed to convince the woman of the house that a man cave is one of the essential rooms, only behind the kitchen and the bathroom. She claims the concept is almost as immature as the “No Girls Allowed” sign on your tree house from your elementary school days. I’m happily not one of those women. In fact, I’ll probably help you hang the beer signs!

In addition, I understand. This room is more than just a room. It’s a place where your geekiness can be expressed, where you and your buddies can relax (and drink), and where you can get your gaming on.

For the ultimate “gamer cave,” make sure you have these five essential items…

BioWare Says ‘Mass Effect 3’ On PC Will Not Support Use Of Controllers
The Movie God   |  

Mass Effect 3

I’m a console gamer, through and through. I’m aware of how much more powerful and smooth PC games are, but playing with one hand on a keyboard and one on a mouse is irredeemably annoying and uncomfortable for me personally. The one and only way you may one day see me trying out PC gaming is if I used a console controller, and with consoles likely inching ever closer and closer to being computers themselves, that’s not happening any time soon.

But for anyone who prefers PC gaming with a controller over the traditional keyboard and mouse set up, Mass Effect 3 might not be quite as exciting as it once was to those of you who were looking forward to playing it.

On the BioWare forums, it was revealed that the PC version of the game will NOT support controllers. They still might work in some cases, but they won’t be supported by the game.

Game Review: RAGE
The Movie God   |  

RAGE Xbox 360

RAGE
Xbox 360 I PS3 I PC
DEVELOPER: id Software
PUBLISHER: Bethesda Softworks
RELEASE DATE: October 4, 2011

Another of the many exciting game titles being released in this fall season, RAGE hopes to stand out as one of the top shooters gamers can get their hands on. Developed by id Software, inventor of the first–person shooter with titles like Wolfenstein, DOOM, and Quake, and published by Bethesda Softworks, the company behind all–time greats The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3, as well as the upcoming Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you could say that the game has a whole lot to live up to.

RAGE starts off after an asteroid (a very real asteroid named Apophis, which in 2004 was thought to have a less than 3% chance of striking Earth in the year 2029) hit our planet on August 23, 2029. You awake from a cryogenic sleep 109 years later, one of the few who were selected for The Eden Project, a program that would put twelve people with special abilities or traits in each of hundreds of Arks that would one day awake and begin to rebuild society.
