The lack of Generals 2 news basically made me completely forget the game was even suppose to be around, but more of the game was revealed at this year’s Gamescom. Forget the Generals 2 part though, its now just Command & Conquer and its going free-to-play.

You don’t actually own the games you buy on Steam

Yesterday Steam announced that they would not be accepting class action lawsuits any longer. Of course most of the media and the public did an about-face saying “wait, you can do that?” Apparently this type of legal clause has been making its way around several other large companies looking to avoid the perils of class-action lawsuits that are admittedly never very fun to watch.

Mass effect 3 pre-order bonus

I, for one, abhor Gamestop and generally won’t step anywhere near it, but this Mass Effect pre-order bonus gear that’s exclusive to the store may sway me otherwise.  For a measly $5 pre-order (and a piece of your soul) you’ll get the N7 warfare gear, which includes the N7 Defender armor and the high-caliber N7 Valkyrie rifle.  The M55 Argus rifle seen in the video is available to all pre-order customers.
