Shooter Dev Makes Joke ‘White Blood’ Mod After Fans Complain About Blood Effects

So, the Steam Next Fest is currently underway. It’s this week-long digital celebration of upcoming PC games where you can check out tons of demos from FPS role-playing games to casual atmospheric adventures. Developer Altered Orbit Studios’ Doom-like Selaco is one of the available demos and has jokingly received a mod from fellow Doom-like FPS makers Metacorp to change the color of the blood effects from the default pinks and purples to the sticky white of cum, all because of fan complaints.

The Best Sex Games On Steam, According To OnlyFans Creators

If Steam’s huge list of sex games is a gated, glistening community pool, I am the discarded, embarrassing flamingo float, doomed to skim the surface for all eternity. I make attempts to dive in—I look at each 2D succubus thumbnail carefully and determine whether or not demon porn is against my core values. I carefully consider “about” sections, which explain in didactic detail why this game’s anime girlfriend with big tits is better than that game’s anime girlfriend with big tits. I nod my head and pretend to understand where to start with all this, how to evade everything titled…

Twitch Pulls Shooting Vid Quickly, But Facebook And Streamable Reuploads Reached Millions

Amazon-owned streaming platform Twitch said it removed a livestream of a mass shooting in Buffalo, New York over the weekend within two minutes of it going live. But that response time was not enough to stop recordings of the footage from spreading to other online platforms, like Facebook, where links to the heinous act remained accessible for hours. This once again raises questions about how much social media companies are really invested in moderating harmful content.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Is $70 On PC And People Are Freaking Out

The launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S provided companies with an opportunity to charge more for their console games and many jumped at the chance. With Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and Forspoken, that new $70 price tag is making a controversial appearance on PC, a platform that’s traditionally seen at cheaper price points. Some people are worried it’s the beginning of an across-the-board price hike, even if it’s one that’s been long overdue.

Earlier today, Streamlabs announced that it would be removing the “OBS” from “Streamlabs OBS” (SLOBS).

The team behind Pitch Ya Game created the hashtag and award show to platform indie game developers to a wider audience, and…
