Chaotic beat ’em up Streets of Rogue is getting a sequelStreets of Rogue emerged from Steam's early access program last year, and it's a fast-paced rogue-lite beat 'em up that lets you play as a wide variety of characters as you make your way through its violent levels of procedurally-generated urban decay. The developer has announced that he's working on a sequel, which we sincerely hope also involves gorillas. You see, in Streets of Rogue, you begin each run by picking a character class, the way you do in many roguelikes. However, here you have options you won't find anywhere else: sure, you could opt to be a soldier or thief, but why not try beating the game as a 500-pound gorilla? Or perhaps as a terrible comedian? Each character type comes with its own specific goals and challenges - gorillas, for example, gain health by eating bananas but cannot speak English. The sequel is early in development, and developer Matt Dabrowski says he doesn't have a timeline established for the sequel. However, in a recent update to the Streets of Rogue Steam page, he says he'd like to build on Streets of Rogue's existing codebase - which represents six years of work, he writes - and make a game that's more "open-ended" and include even more systems.

Artifact has had more players this weekend than it has in a yearValve has officially announced that it's working on a re-release of Artifact, and the news seems to have reignited interest in the game: this weekend, more people were playing Artifact than the game has seen in a year. According to Steamcharts, Artifact saw a peak of 535 concurrent players Saturday at about 12:00 GMT. While a few hundred players isn't going to put Artifact shoulder to shoulder with Steam's most-played games, that is a remarkable figure for Artifact - its monthly average player count has been below 200 since April of last year, dipping into the 70s during July and August. Now, Valve has confirmed what had been rumoured for a while: it's working on a revamped, retooled version of the card game that ditches the original user market card economy for a free-to-play model that doesn't involve selling cards at all. The new version makes so many big changes to the way Artifact works that Valve has been referring to it internally as Artifact 2, and the company announced two weeks ago that the game is 'under construction.'

Record-breaking Half-Life speedrun briefly trades crowbars for lightsabersHalf Life‘s introduction is famously slow. Long tram rides and lengthy speeches from co-workers preparing Gordon Freeman for an experiment that would destroy the world. An atmospheric start, for sure, but it’s a pain for folks trying to beat the game as quickly as possible. For one speedrunner, though, those dead minutes aren’t an obstacle […]

Good news about the server statusTest has been going very well so far! With the exception of some small issues that affected individual players or servers, which we're investigating and will be fixing soon, everything is stable and working as intended.Seeing that many of you are enjoying the game, we've decided to keep the servers running overnight, and if no major issues appear during that time, we will not be wiping your progress or shutting servers down anymore.Thank you everyone for helping us with the test and all the support you've shown over the last week!

Adapting to Feedback - Build Update #408We've been reading a lot of the feedback and doing our best to understand some of the issues people are having with the game. The largest being, people seem to be missing a lot of the game's content because they're very focused on writing their novel. We want people to be aware that the game will not tell you to when or how to explore the cities, or lead you to the best content. If you stay inside and do nothing but write, there's a good chance you'll miss a lot of great stuff. So, we're adding a pre-game notice hinting so.The second largest complaint was from import players who saved up the $10,000 to pay for Sam's gambling debt in ASM. Most in this case are confused about the continuity of the sequel, and why they're not playing as the protagonist they expect to be. So, we're adding some extra content to reveal pieces of the story a little earlier in the game. This will help ensure players understand that their specific timeline has been considered much sooner.Of course there are more complaints (many we agree with) that we'll be remedying in the near future. So, we thank you all for your feedback and helping us understand how things are presented. Here's what is in the latest update: Removed duplicate character from Spouse's epilogue Added preface to vignette scenes for context Posted a design philosophy explainer in preface to the intro Fixed issue with epilogue spouse changing sprite inappropriately Reverted leftovers back to their original design Prevented players from teleporting out of the epilogue by getting too drunk Updated prisoner "Lucy" sprite to appropriate female model Fixes for controller users unable to leave showers Trisha will no longer force you to smoke a cigarette after going to the club Cleaned up some typos in the C&C fantasy game with Sheena Allowed all gambling machines to update your status with the casino Prevented player from eating and sitting inside Shelly, while she's already on the couch Smoothed some party movement for groups going to the gun range Updated flower cart store wallpaper (no longer Bullet Burger) Changed actors in the film City of Kings Fixed an issue where some theater chairs forced endless movie watching Prevented players from watching a movie twice in a single theater showing Fixed an issue in the Gun Range where your spouse's sprite would turn into Yasi Made bus friends aware of Hermes' return after he goes missing Recipe for PB&J Sandwich now works as intended Prevented re-entry to Kingston Mansion once finished Alexa's adventure Fixed a hard lock with the Kingston Mansion attendant Once completed, book readings will now vacate from phone notifications Enabled player movement after they regain sanity from their final delusion Dream sequence trigger for import players who kept their book (paid Mr. Parker) in ASM Added the ability to feed treats and food to the dogsThe update should be live now, and ready for download. We hope that you find some changes here that you can appreciate, as we continue to steamroll any more bugs.- VD

Roundguard Update: Patch 1.0.2Here are some fresh, juicy bug fixes for you! Don't forget: If you have feedback or want to chat with other Roundguardians, come join in our Discord at https://discord.gg/roundguard . Patch 1.0.2BALANCE Made some changes to the Goblin Bombers so they no longer occasionally one-shot you without warning. Fixed issue where bombs would occasionally hit several times with one explosion. Goblin Bombers are no longer considered a bomb and so they do not explode when they are defeated.BUG FIXES Fixed rare issue where the hero could get stuck between exits, especially while webbed. Fixed rare issue where heroes could get stuck between special pegs that spawned too close together. If hero ever gets stuck (e.g. gently dropped by a gelly cube perfectly onto a skull), it'll wait a few seconds to see if you get unstuck on your own, then give you a loving kick. Fixed rare soft lock if you saved and quit while Trinket equip UI was up, continued, and then completed a quest without closing the app during the sequence. Fixed eensy-weensy memory leak that may have been leading to some crashes. Leaderboards do a better job of uploading your high scores even when internet is cutting in/out. Aimer no longer updates behind the pause menu when using mouse. Hero vocal exerts when they windup to attack near an enemy now has a cooldown before the sound will play again. No more "HAH! HAH! HAH!" spam.

Free games: Grab a big bundle of free pinball tables courtesy of Pinball FX3The makers of Pinball FX3 are giving away a selection of popular pinball tables to help everyone fight boredom during the lockdowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. You can head over to Steam and start playing right away, without paying a red cent. The Pinball FX3 Care Package includes three DLCs for Pinball FX3: Aliens vs. Pinball, Marvel Pinball: Heavy Hitters, and Star Wars Pinball. Each of these normally sells for $9.99 USD (£6.99), but the complete package of three is currently free. Each DLC includes three themed tables. Aliens vs Pinball includes a table based on Aliens, one on Alien: Isolation, and one based on Alien vs. Predator, for example, and each table features voiceover and sound effects pulled from the original films and/or games. Fans seem to love them - Zen's table adaptations and designs are fun and action-packed, and it's hard to argue with a price tag of zero monies. All of them plug into the base game, Pinball FX3, which is always free - it exists mainly as a platform for you to add whichever tables in which you're most interested.
