Steam Database, a group known for tracking Steam player counts, tweeted about this year’s Steam summer sale, the “Steam Grand Prix Summer Sale”, stating that it will begin today at 10AM PST on June 25th. The information was found on a Chinese Steam Community forum, SteamCN.
The forum also included details about a new event for the sale, replacing the Steam Trading Cards typically distributed during sales. SteamCN user Cvisy posted a screenshot pertaining to the Grand Prix event.
There is currently no information regarding the purpose of the Grand Prix Boost Meter, nor the correlation between purchases, purchase prices, and Boost Meter points awarded for the purchases.
However, if one were to divide 100,899 by 999 (the current USD price for the Valve Index VR Kit), it can be assumed that $1 USD is equivalent to 101 Grand Prix Boost Meter points. Of course, this is merely speculation, and subject to change.
What are you looking forward to purchasing during the sale? Do you intend to take advantage of whatever new promotion the Grand Prix entails?
Alpha Protocol, one of Obsidian's game more interesting RPG marred by a buggy launch, has been delisted from Steam. If you visit the Alpha Protocol page now, you won't be able to buy the game but you'll be faced with this message:
The message is quite mysterious - we can only guess what the next move will be - a remastering on Steam at a higher price? A re-release on Microsoft Store now that Obsidian is owned by Microsoft?
Thankfully you can still buy the Steam version through third parter sellers like Gamesplanet for now, at the princely sum of £2.50. Also check out our fixes article for Alpha Protocol.
Steam are planning something new with the Summer Sale 2019, here's the announcement:
Steam trading cards have been a staple of the Steam Sale since first introduced in 2013.
Valve have always tweaked how sales work and how to keep people engaged over long periods of time. For example Valve introduced a daily/flash sales only to disable them in 2015 - some have speculated that this changed consumer behaviour and actually increased total revenue over the entire sale period.
The Steam Summer Sale is rumoured to begin 18:00 British Summer Time on June 25th, 2019 (13:00 ET, 10:00 PT), and will most likely end July 9th, 2019.
Blaster Master Zero, a great PC port by Inti Creates, developers of the Azure Striker Gunvolt franchiseBy AnotherGills
Blaster Master Zero, initially a title released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS in 2017, has finally launched on Steam, with a promotional launch price of $8.99 USD. After June 21st, this will go up to $9.99 USD.
Inti Creates developed this self-published re-imagining of the Sunsoft NES classic, Blaster Master.
On release day, Blaster Master Zero's PC version is leaps and bounds ahead of their first foray into PC development, Azure Striker Gunvolt, featuring 60 FPS gameplay and fully remappable controller support.
When Azure Striker Gunvolt launched on Steam in 2015, it was marred with a frame rate cap of 30 FPS, random peformance drops unrelated to hardware, and minimal controller support. However, the game was slowly patched over the years, removing the performance drops and adding more robust controller support and mapping.
In 2017, Azure Striker Gunvolt was re-released on the Nintendo Switch, with a locked frame rate of 60 FPS. While this angered many PC gamers who had purchased the title, Inti Creates did not provide any comment on the matter.
Eventually, in May 2018, Inti Creates released a patch for the Steam version that increased the frame rate to 60 FPS, giving it parity with the Switch version. 60 FPS support was clamored for before the Steam version even launched, and after nearly three years, the developers finally implemented it.
In the present, Inti Creates announced that their upcoming project, "Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX", formerly announced to be releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, would also be receiving a simultaneous Steam release on September 26, 2019. Along with their recent releases of "Gal*Gun 2" and "Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon", Inti Creates is clearly making a stronger push with their IPs to the PC platform.
PC players are being properly respected by Inti Creates, and this fully-functioning release shows it.
The latest Steam update has enabled 'Steam Remote Play' which is the new name for 'In-Home Streaming' which now works outside the home. Here are the details:
Streaming games from your PC to outside the home was always possible using aplications like Moonlight or even setting up a VPN with Steam's In-Home Streaming. However this new update makes everything work natively with remote devices including Steam installed on PCs or Steam Link mobile app for iOS and Android.
