Steam's Exploration Sales Started Today, Here's All The Good Deals

We knew they were coming and now they’re finally here — the first round of Steam sales for the Christmas holidays.

How Counter-Strike's Bullets Actually Work

Counter-Strike is a game that’s defined by tiny details. So let’s talk bullets.

Nobody's Sure How One Of Counter-Strike's Best Players Nailed An Incredible Shot

Axe Attacks In Dota 2's New Comic

Briefly: Valve just released a meaty web comic telling part of the story behind the Dota 2 hero Axe, a melee warrior who…wields an axe. It’s a very good comic, even if you don’t know anything about Dota’s lore! Read it here.
