Steam Adds Frames Per Second Counter


Steam is getting a frames per second (FPS) counter and a few other new improvements, Valve has announced.

For now, the new feature is available only if you choose to participate in the Steam Client Beta, which you can do by simply going to Settings, then Account, and choosing the Steam Beta Update. One you downloaded the latest update, you can enable the FPS counter by going to Settings, then In-Game, and checking the box for "Show in-game frames/sec (FPS)." Once you do that, the next time you'll launch a game you'll notice a counter in the top left corner of your screen telling you how many frames per second your PC is pushing at any moment.

If you're playing all your games on Steam anyway, it's a really easy way to keep track of what your PC can handle and finding the balance between performance and graphics quality while fine-tuning the settings on a new game. As with all Steam Client Beta features, it's likely to roll out to all Steam users eventually.

The rest of the Steam Client Beta updates aim to improve capture and broadcasting performance for the recently released Steam Broadcasting, which much like Twitch, allows Steam users to watch their friends' games with just one press of a button.

Humble Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Bundle Celebrates Speedrunning Charity


Humble Bundle has launched the Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Bundle, which features a collection of games and services to get you started with speedrunning.

You can pay what they want for Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Volgarr the Viking. If you pay $6 or more you will also receive Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut, SpeedRunners, and a 30-day subscription to Twitch Turbo.

If you pay $10 or more, you'll also get Escape Goat 2 and a 3-month subscription to livestreaming software XSplit Premium. If you pay $30 or more, you'll also get AGDQ 2015's Bundle Merchandise Pack, which includes exclusive t-shirts, buttons and more designed by The Yetee.

As always, you can choose how your money is divided between the game developers, Humble Bundle and the charity.

Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ), a video game charity that raises money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation by speedrunning games, started today at 9 a.m., and will run continuously for 160-hours, until January 10.

For those unfamiliar, speedrunning is the process of playing through a game as quickly as possible. Speedruns are particularly fun and sometimes bewildering to watch because they require expert skill, lots of planning, and sometimes the use of tricks.

Some of the games to be played at the 2015 event include, Banjo-Kazooie, Commander Keen 4-6 and Dark Souls II. 2015 will also see the return of Awful Games Done Quick, with titles like William Shatner's TekWar and Sneak King.

Last year's AGDQ event raised more than $1 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Killer Instinct Gets a Bonus Fighter, Omen


Killer Instinct announced the fifth fighter joining the game during Season 2, Omen, Herald of Gargos.

Omen will be a bonus character, meaning he's not one of the eight characters you'd normally get with the season. At the moment, he's only available to those who bought the Season 2 pack, and Microsoft said it has no plans to sell him individually.

"His moveset has some familiar normals from Jago, some new ones, and his specials are either all-new or ones that only the boss version of Shadow Jago used," Microsoft Studios Creative Director Adam Isgreen said on the game's official forums.

He added that we'll learn more about the character next week, and if previous characters are any indication, we'll probably get a proper look at Omen next week with a trailer. For now, we know these highlights about Omen:

  • 3 shadow stocks
  • Shadow-powered ability to cancel any action, turn into shadow, and move a short distance in any direction
  • Multi-hitting close-range kick special
  • Powerful projectile zoning with some radical projectile options
  • A special move that burns all 3 stocks.
  • Aerial movement options
  • Slide

Killer Instinct shipped on the same day as the Xbox One launch, with Jago available to play for free. Players could unlock other characters and items by paying a fee.

Killer Instinct developer Double Helix was acquired by Amazon last year, casting doubt on continued support for the Xbox One fighter. Microsoft claimed the game would not be affected and said that the franchise, which it owns, would continue on.

Star Citizen Doesn’t Have a “Final Finish Line” Like Traditional Retail Games, Dev Says


Wing Commander creator and Cloud Imperium Games founder Chris Roberts talked about the progress Star Citizen has made in 2014 and its plans going into 2015 in an end of year "letter from the chairman."

"Star Citizen isn't a sprint, it isn't even a marathon," Roberts said. "There is no final finish line the way you would have with a traditional retail game. Star Citizen is a way of life for as long as the community is engaged by it."

With more than $68.7 million in funding and growing, Star Citizen is already the most crowdfunded project of any kind in history. As to why the space sim continues to raise funds, Roberts credited the community that has already built up around the game.

"It’s a project that is being built not just by 300 developers, but a project that is being built by hundreds of thousands of gamers that love PC games, that love space games and want to see a game made RIGHT, one that has such depth and ambition that they can see themselves happily adventuring for years to come," Roberts said.

For 2015, Roberts said that backers will get the FPS module, the Planetside social module, multi-crew ships in Arena Commander mode, and the first episode of the single-player experience, Squadron 42.

In 2014, Star Citizen received 23 updates, and players logged over one million hours into Arena Commander, split approximately 80 percent single-player and 20 percent multiplayer. Cloud Imperium’s staff also grew from 70 to 180 employees over the year, during which it raised another $33 million.

For more on Star Citizen and Roberts himself, check out part one and part two of GameSpot's interview with the legendary designer.

Watch Marvel’s “Human-Sized” Ant-Man Teaser


Marvel Entertainment has released the first teaser preview for the Ant-Man, which you can watch above.

Technically, it's the first "human-sized" teaser preview for the movie, following the release of the "ant-sized" trailer (below) released yesterday, a joke referencing Ant-Man's ability to change his size.

The first trailer for the movie will air on ABC, 8 p.m. January 6, during an episode of Marvel's show Agent Carter. Marvel also announced that it will air the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron on January 12 during the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship on ESPN starting at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Ant-Man, in case you're unfamiliar with the comics, follows con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), who must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his Ant-Man suit from a new generation of threats.

Ant-Man is set to hit theaters on July 17.

Xbox One Devs Can Now Use More of the Console’s CPU


Xbox One developers can now use more of the console's CPU power, according to a recent report on its latest software development kit (SDK) from Eurogamer's Digital Foundry.

The latest update gives developers access to a seventh core (out of a total of eight) on Xbox One's CPU. Microsoft can now allow developers to use more of Xbox One's CPU as it continues to use less of the CPU itself for background operations related to Kinect's infrared and voice detection capabilities.

If developers want to use the seventh CPU core, they have to give up voice detection along with other Kinect functionality. However, even if they do, a user can still choose to use system-level voice commands, which will automatically use as much as 50 percent of that seventh core, causing problems for the developer. According to Digital Foundry, the leaked SDK also indicated that Microsoft intends to address this issue in future updates.

The only reason we know about these changes is because a hacking group called H4LT recently leaked the latest version of Xbox One's SDK. It's been suggested that the leaked SDK will allow developers to start creating homebrew applications or pirate games for Xbox One, but encryption technologies and server-side authentication mean that the SDK mostly a curiosity, at least for now.

Kung Lao Returns to Mortal Kombat X


The blade hat wielding Shaolin monk Kung Lao will be a playable fighter in Mortal Kombat X, Developer NetherRealm has revealed.

The news comes via the cover story of Games Master magazine in the UK and Pelaaja in Finland. Like all characters in Mortal Kombat X, Kung Lao will have three unique combat style variations which give him access to different moves best suited for different play styles. Buzz Saw is best for an aggressive style and projectile attacks, Tempest is best for a defensive style and maintaining control of the stage, and Hat Trick lets Kung Lao toss his hat, make it hover in place, and call it back at any time.

NetherRealm also revealed the new Factions mode, which will let each player choose one out of five factions to join when fighting online. Each faction is affiliated with different characters in the game, and winning matches and other challenges will contribute "war points" to your faction.

Along with series incumbents Scorpion and Sub-Zero, a host of other new characters have been announced for the game, such as Quan Chi, D'Vorah, Ferra/Torr, Cassie Cage and Kotal Kahn. Familiar faces, such as Raiden and Kano, are also returning to the series. Former boss Goro will be a playable character for those who pre-order.

Steam Hits New Record for Concurrent Users


While Xbox Live and PlayStation Network were experiencing technical difficulties over the holidays, Steam's holiday sale helped it break new records in the number of concurrent users.

Valve's digital games store and service broke the 8.4 million mark on January 1, and according to Steam's Game and Player Statistics page, it reached an all-time high yesterday at 11:10 a.m. with 8,500,245 concurrent users. That's a record for concurrent usage, up from 8,020,700 people back in June 2014.

The number of concurrent Steam users probably peaked during the holiday because people had more free time to play games, and the incentive to keep checking Steam every day because of its annual sale, which introduced new discounts every 12 hours.

The most popular game on Steam by far at the moment is Dota 2, as it usually is, with a peak of 879,827 players. It's followed by Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which had 383,584 players, Team Fortress 2, which has 92,606, and then Football Manager 2015, which had 77,749 players.

In September, Valve announced that Steam has more than 100 million active accounts, which is up by 25 million from the 75 million figure announced in January 2013.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 Teased — Report


It seems like we might get a third Five Nights at Freddy's game, according to a recent update to the game developer's website, scottgames.com.

If you'll go to the site now, you'll see that it's been updated with a new, and appropriately creepy image of an animatronic the games are known for, barely lit and and with glowing eyes, and the simple text "I am still here." If you try to save the image, you'll see that the file is named fnaf3.jpg, which could stand for Five Nights at Freddy's 3.

That might not seem like a lot of time to develop another sequel, but developer Scott Cawthon proved that he can produce these games fairly quickly. Five Nights at Freddy's 2 was released in November, only a couple of month after the release of the original game.

The first Five Night's at Freddy's puts players in the role of a security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, a kid-friendly restaurant where the animatronic robots that are supposed to entertain the crowds have been acting a little strange. Five Nights at Freddy's 2 features a new security guard and new animatronics.

Both games are available to download from Steam and the iTunes App Store.
