So much blame was put on video games through the years for potentially inducing violent behavior in the youth that the general public tend to forget about some of the benefits and see video games as some kind of evil machinery because it is so much more comfortable to blame video games rather than poor education.

Aha... A bit of gossip. Hey! Gamers too have the right to amuse themselves with celebrities gossips (well at least video games celebrities). But rest assured, we're going to keep it gentle which means no secret video of Lara Croft's entertaining private exercises.

Instead we have a roaming fire inside of Lara's household. Few among you will now the company SCi. That's normal, it is not known to gamers under this name. Eidos however should tell you something. SCi (known as Eidos in the gaming world) are the holders of well known franchises such as Tomb Raider, Deus Ex or Thief...
Lately, there were some talks going on to sell Eidos to some other company (Electronic Arts, Time Warner and Ubisoft were interested) but SCi issued last Thursday a statement announcing that these talks were over since apparently some new opportunities emerged for the company.

In an official statement issued yesterday, Valve announced that they acquired the developer Turtle Rock. It's no small news since it's the first time that Valve acquire another game developer (the Portal team aside, but they were hired rather than bought). It's one step more in the electronic publishing area for Valve via their Steam system, and according to Valve, it allows them to get a base to develop their activities in Los Angeles (home of Turtle Rock).

Rockstar Falls To The Dark Side PDF Print E-mail

Just kidding. Don't think I am saying that Steam is the Dark Side but nevertheless they are becoming slowly but surely quite the basic move for publishers/developers wishing to sell their games online. The last of them being Rockstar which propose now their complete catalog of Grand Theft Auto games, both Max Payne ones and another title, Manhunt.

Prices are a bit all over the place and you probably could get a better deal for each game separately from a bargain bin. So it seems that the only interesting things right now are the two full bundles, all the GTA series for $39 or both Max Payne for about $18. There is also a $63 grand bundle if you're really into everything Rockstar.
