Finally, for all you Nintendo fans, let’s talk about the Nintendo Indie World Showcase!
It was livestreamed a few days ago, and during the Indie World Showcase, Nintendo showed off a number of high-profile titles coming to Switch. Although it’s not a very epic update, it’s still a few cool games!
The lineup includes games like Hades, Card Shark, Bear and Breakfast, etc.
Besides that, fan favourite game “Untitled Goose Game” is getting a 2 player co-op mode!
Read more about each game and watch their trailers here at Verge!
Aaaand it’s back! If you haven’t had the chance to have a look already, most AAA titles are priced at a VERY VERY reasonable rate! Make sure you grab these before the 9th of July! (around a week remaining.)
So, what’s new? Well, for starters, there’s a reward point system which is a recurring thing for Steam Sales and you can get customizable wallpapers and profile icons! And this time, they’re animated! How cool is that? Apart from that you also get animated emojis that you can use in your Steam chat.
Apart from that, we got some cool mini-events, especially this one – for the pride month that was in June!
And here’s a list of games that you SHOULD get as they’re preeeetty decently priced.
After the Steam Winter Sale that JUST ended on the 2nd of January, we still have to look at the other not-so-superior consoles, amirite? (PC Masterrace, anyone? Just kidding – all consoles have their pros and cons so let’s not make that a discussion.)

We’re all broke, we get it. But now’s not the time to be grim, fellow gamers! We gotta rise! (Wish my wallet could say the same…)
Anyway, here’s some good news – with less than a week remaining for the Steam Halloween Sales to start, the dates for the next 2 Steam Sales (Autumn and Winter) were leaked as well!!!!

Halloween Sale: October 28 – November 1
Autumn Sale: November 26 – December 3
Winter Sale: December 19 – January 2
After the mishap caused during the Grand Prix event – which kinda crashed Steam altogether, with random glitches, imbalanced event mini games, wishlist disappearance, etc. we can hope that this isn’t going to be repeated – and that they would have a far more entertaining event than the Summer Sales event, since that was pretty bland.
Let’s hope for the best and see how things go. As for now, I’m gonna sit tight and not spend anything on Steam, however ludicrous the offers may be. I’m gonna save like a squirrel and THEN GO ALL IN.
That’s it for this time folks! How much are you gonna spend this time? Leave your answers in the comment below! Go on! Flex! :p

I’m sure everyone knows about the Steam Summer Sales unless
you’re living under a rock – and there’s some news! The entire event is a huge
bug pile and has caused an uproar on the platform.
The event began on the 25th of June, and will
last until the 9th of July next week.
This time, the theme is Grand Prix – and you have to choose your own team, and get to race against them, boost yourself to reach the finish line, etc. It’s a little bit complicated, but you can check the full information here – https://store.steampowered.com/grandprix
Anyone can take part in it – and this is what you get!
“Drivers from the top three finishing teams on a given day will be selected at random to receive the top ranked item from their Steam Wishlist. This item must be available for sale, rather than merely Coming Soon. 300 drivers from the first place team, 200 drivers from the second place team, and 100 drivers from the third place team will receive a free title. Be sure to rank the titles in your wishlist, and add any new ones you’re interested in. At the end of the entire Grand Prix we will award 1,000 random drivers from the first place team the top three ranked games on their wishlist. For second place, we will award 1,000 random drivers the top two ranked games on their wishlist. For third place, will award 1,000 random drivers the top ranked game on their wishlist. “
Every purchase you’ve made after the Lunar Sale has been converted to tokens, along with the games you have played and the achievements you’ve received so far. All of these tokens can be redeemed at the Pit Stop to get cool new backgrounds, icons etc. and, here comes the main part – YOU CAN LEVEL UP YOUR SUMMER GAMES 2019 BADGE BY USING THESE TOKENS!
Now, this is a huge bug, because apparently levelling up the badge gives you a crazy amount of XP, and by crazy, I mean it’s absolute MADNESS!
For example, I had purchased like 7-10 games after the Lunar Sale along with a huge playtime in games like CS:GO and Rocket League (with a lot of achievements), owing to the collection of a huge amount of points, that I converted to tokens immediately. After getting around 30,000 tokens (Yes I did have that many) I simply upgraded my badge. In less than 5 minutes, I literally JUMPED from level 25 (Overall Steam Level) to Level 58.
Not only is this super erratic and unfair to people who purchased and collected tons of cards to level up, but it ALSO WILL CRASH the entire card trading market on Steam. The prices will dunk, and people will be able to level up on Steam without any effort.
Another bug was found using the game Starbound, and modding
a quest – “Drink a Soda” – and with this mod, you can craft a huge amount of
sodas and using autoclicker – just consume it to get points.
Within minutes, you’re able to generate thousands of points,
for instance, the mod converts 1 dirt block to 500 sodas. Just convert 10
blocks – Get 5000 sodas. And each soda consumed gives you 10 points in the
Summer Games. So, you get a total of 50,000 points. You see what’s happening
Well, you can use this bug to your advantage before it gets
patched – and go get those Steam Levels!
