No, PUBG Is Not An 'Asset Flip' No, PUBG Is Not An 'Asset Flip'

On Steam, “asset flip” refers to a game that’s haphazardly assembled from pre-purchased environments, objects, and sound effects for the purpose of making a quick buck.

Jurassic World Evolution Is A Clumsy But Fun Park Builder Jurassic World Evolution Is A Clumsy But Fun Park Builder

Movie tie-ins are a gamble that usually ends with a lackluster game. For every Spider-Man 2, there’s a dozen games that are clunky and not worth your time. Jurassic World Evolution falls somewhere in between. It’s not the most detailed park-building sim, but if you embrace some of its clumsiness, you’ll find yourself…

Steam’s New Chat Is A Lot Like Discord

For the longest time, Steam’s built-in chat functionality has not been what I would call good. Today, though, Valve revealed a much-needed modern makeover, and you can try it now.

This Week In The Business: Valve Opens The Flood Gates This Week In The Business: Valve Opens The Flood Gates

QUOTE | “I’ve talked to one Valve rep, and I’m like, ‘I want to put this kind of content on Steam,’ and the Valve rep responded, ‘Yeah, that seems okay, I’ll let you know if we change our mind.’ Which doesn’t provide any certainty. It puts developers in a weird position because we have to guess how Valve’s mind will…

Survival Games Are At Their Best When You're Alone Survival Games Are At Their Best When You're Alone

I lost my raft. Not the best way to start a game called Raft, but I soldiered on, desperately doggy-paddling through an endless sea in hopes of finding dry land before I starved to death or got eaten by a shark. As the in-game sun set, I accepted my fate: I would die cold, afraid, and alone. I looked up at the moon.…

There's Now A Battle Royale Game With Freak Physics And It's Great

Stick Fight Is A Perfect Game To Play With Non-Gamers Stick Fight Is A Perfect Game To Play With Non-Gamers

Most of the time, I want to be gaming. If you’re here, probably, you can relate. In the grand scheme of personality traits, that one isn’t so bad; just not 100% satisfiable in every circumstance. Sometimes I find myself in an unfortunate situation involving me, chilling, and several other people who don’t play games,…

School Shooting Game Angers Steam Users, Developer 'Likely' Changing It [UPDATE] School Shooting Game Angers Steam Users, Developer 'Likely' Changing It [UPDATE]

Earlier this week, a game called Active Shooter appeared on Steam. It’d be nothing more than another heap of hacked-together pre-purchased assets—or an “asset flip,” as they’re known on Steam—if not for its subject matter. It’s about mass shootings.
