REVIEWS Satellite Reign Review
A spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars that more than lives up to its legacy.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

PREVIEWS Hob Preview
If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.

Steam's Pseudo-Console, 'Big Picture', Now Available

Posted on Tuesday, December 4 @ 12:51:52 PST by Jonathan_Leack

You might notice a button on the upper-right corner of Steam that says Big Picture. Click it for a surprise.

Today marks the official launch of Big Picture on Steam. Unsurprisingly, it's free and already integrated into your client without a download of sorts.

So what is Big Picture, you ask? Well, basically it's software that optimizes Steam for the living room. In other words, it's focused on gaming via television. Using an HDMI cable to connect your PC to a T.V. set, Big Picture transforms the entire Steam experience into a user and controller-friendly state.

Speaking of which, 30 games are already available that include controller integration. To celebrate Big Picture's debut, Valve is offering a variety of supported games at reduced prices. You can pick up Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for $7.49, Left 4 Dead 2 for $4.99, and a long list of other killer titles.

Now that the cement as been laid, don't be surprised when Valve's rumored console is announced. I know I won't.
