Eric explains why Valve's trio of new announcements - Steam Machines, Steam OS and the Steam Controller - might not live up to expectations of reinventing the video game console landscape.

From a traveling circus to designing theme park rides to developing his first game, Australia's Dene Waring is making a splash on Steam Greenlight with Huntsman: The Orphanage.
Tokyo Game Show (TGS), the biggest games exhibition in Japan, generated most of the headlines late this week. While most note that the Japanese games industry has shrunk over the last few years, especially in comparison to the growth of developers and studios in North America, the home of Sony, Nintendo and other creators still puts on an impressive show every year. Let’s take a look at some of the notable TGS headlines (and others) at the News Shelf.
Welcome to the News Shelf. Thursday’s announcement of the Wii U price, retail packages and launch date dominated the headlines, so that’s where we’re starting. But they aren’t the only company who made an announcement about bringing their games to your television.

The Kickstarter funded film follows several indie game designers as they struggle to complete their respective games - and it's a surprisingly familiar process. We sat down with filmmakers Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky to discuss how they came to make a movie about game development, their Sundance success, and about some of the criticism that has been leveled at the film.
Everyone's favourite "war-themed hat simulator," Team Fortress 2, released its "Uber Update" yesterday. Aside from bringing a lot of improvements and additions to the 2007 first person shooter, the game's developers have announced that it will shift to a free-to-play model which is driven by micro-transactions.
Released today is the first in what I hope will be a series of comics featuring the characters from Valve Software‘s popular multiplayer shooter Team Fortress 2. The comic was written and drawn by Michael Avon Oeming, the artist behind titles like Powers, Mice Templar and the new soon to be released Rapture. The Sniper vs. […]
