Small developers are losing confidence that Valve is earning its 30% of Steam sales, according to a new survey. In 2017, 39% of developers agreed that Valve had earned its share, but that number has dropped to 11% in this year’s survey. Lars Doucet, who has run this survey for three years, is quick to note that these results are not scientific – but they do put numbers to issues developers have lately been in heated discussions over.
Metro 2033 is getting a movie adaptation – or, rather, it was. MGM picked up the rights to the novel that inspired the game series back in 2012, but the project wound up dead in the water as producers attempted to Americanise it by swapping the Moscow tunnel setting for Washington DC.
The Resident Evil franchise is a staple to the survival horror genre. Over the years gamers have been fighting off zombies and genetically modified monsters. Each game feels like we’re getting close to the collapse of the civilized world as you investigate the area and attempt to stop those responsible from unleashing the virus. However, until recently, the franchise has changed from a survival horror experience to action horror. There was less focus on solving puzzles and conserving ammunition. Instead, Capcom seemed to unleash hell for you to fight back against with relative ease but with the latest release of Resident Evil 7, the franchise has regained its old roots.
Gaming videos are popular on YouTube. That’s not exactly a stunning revelation, but the numbers the company is boasting for 2018 are nearly unbelievable. 50 billion hours worth of gaming content was viewed in the last year. Some quick math translates that to 5.7 million years worth of trailers, lore breakdowns, and sick Fortnite plays.
Google today revealed that Google+ has suffered another massive data breach, forcing the tech giant to shut down its struggling social network four months earlier than its actual scheduled date, i.e., in April 2019 instead of August 2019.
We’ve seen a trend lately within the video game industry. More game developers are aiming to provide an online multiplayer experience with support being provided through the means of passes and microtransactions. For instance, with the Call of Duty franchise there is normally a single-player campaign mixed with various online game modes for multiplayer but with the latest release, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, the development team dropped the single-player component completely. While we don’t think the trend will be dropped anytime soon, one Sony Executive believes the demand for great single-player video game titles is still present.
