SegmentNext takes a look back at the Steam Summer Sale 2014, because it's hard to let go. Let's see what did work, what didn't work at all and the things that sort of worked, but it's not exactly certain why they did.

"Kingdoms of Amalur… the name sounded kind of generic but the execution was supposedly pretty good. It’s one of the dozens of games in my back catalog of titles I’ll likely get around to playing after my head is full of gray hairs and flying cars become the standard for getting around town. This story isn’t about Kingdom of Amalur, though. It’s about the company that was granted $75 million to make the game"

GG3 receives some press releases from titles that chose this exact period of time to release on PC, right when there's a giant Steam Summer Sale event. That's why none have even made a blip in sales so far. Other games were a little craftier.

GG3 is tired of running the gauntlet in the Steam Summer Sale's many pages. So, here are just 2 things that can be used that makes the sale much more enjoyable, without any of the annoyance.

"Since the initial unveiling of the Oculus Rift hardware over two years ago there’s been much talk about the potential for software distribution on the device. Many have suggested that Steam is a perfect portal for Oculus VR to utilise while others insist that the company must create it’s own virtual storefront. Oculus VR themselves have been relatively tight-lipped on the subject, only hinting that the latter is an obvious path to follow. Following a well received showcase at this month’s Ele..."

GG3 writes about game deals and their often misleading advertisement, using Gamefly's latest Summer Sale as an example. Its use of "up to 80%" is rather harshly undercut and that's not cool for customers, regardless of having good deals.

Twitter is the quickest and easiest way to stay updated on anything you're interested in, including video games. But there's a problem: right now, the service has about 255 million active users, and it's growing every day. So where do you start? Here's our list of the best game-related Twitter feeds that we think you should follow.

GG3 writes: "Development tool creators Unity have started to advertise their product through developer profiles and iOS game République’s Camouflaj team is the first to talk shop. Some of the clip also goes behind the scenes to show the game being made with the engine."

GG3 writes: "Digital platform IndieGameStand has rolled out a big update that welcomes community features and thereby catches up to some of its competitors. Those competitors are Steam, mainly."

GG3 writes: "Longtime web comic Cyanide & Happiness have put up another short animation video that features some game content for fighter fans. It’s possibly the most twisted version of a Street Fighter tribute."

GG3 writes: "With almost two days left on the clock, Humble announced that their current Weekly Bundle, featuring RPG Maker and a ton more deals, has shot its way to the biggest weekly offering they’ve had yet."

GG3 returns to a browsing session on reddit to find some amazing pixel art of anime company Studio Ghibli that turns titles like My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away into classic adventure scenes.

EA has being doing alot of risky things these past years and now it's time to give up Mythic because the games aren't just not selling enough as excpected . Hopefully the members from that group can go make better games since they are not in the hands of EA but hopefully this won't mess up any of the upcoming games in the future .

"I recently had a bit of an exchange with someone over social media about The Walking Dead: Season Two’s episode release schedule. I originally asked developer Telltale Games if they can please release Episode 4 a month after Episode 3′s release, because I felt the rollout was taking a bit long.

I brought this up because the first episode of Season Two came out last December 17, 2013. At the time of that comment, it was already the second week of May 2014 and Episode 3 was just about to be ..."

""Raven Software is one of those companies that has probably made a game you love even though you might not recognize their name. When all their games are listed out it's funny just how many well-loved cult classics have come out of one studio. Soldier of Fortune, Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast, Star Wars Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy, and X-Men Legends I & II are all from Raven Software. From comic book games to movie games to their own IP, Raven has p..."

Daav from NoobFeed asks some questions to Erik Schreuder, CEO of Iceberg Interactive. The company celebrates five years of existence. It has since then grown from a point-and-click publisher to a sizable player in the 4X strategy market on Steam. That gives them some experience to talk about.

GG3 writes: "So, fast food chain and entertainment center Chuck E. Cheese’s has adopted Oculus Rift technology and is looking to put it into its franchise. Its first foray with the virtual reality device will be called “Virtual Ticket Blaster Experience.”

Where would modern gaming be without classic PC FPS games? The 1990s were great and they graced gamers will all sorts of FPS games
Gamers should be thankful, for it was FPS games like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D that contributed to revolutionizing and pushing gaming.

"he Sony PlayStation conference at this year's E3 will take place on June 9, 6pm PT.

Though not yet officially announced, a number of invitations have already been issued to select members of the gaming press, including IGN's own Colin Moriarty."

Today Nintendo have announced a third annual loss. Since it's release, the Wii-U console has sold around just 6.17 million units and as little as two and a half million in the last year. These figures are staggering when compared to the 7 million Playstation 4 units that Sony have shifted since it's release just before the holiday season. There are some positives for Nintendo with 3DS sales creeping up to around 44 million in total since it's release. With no new console being announced at th...

The studio behind Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero is merging with Infinity Ward. The new super-studio will retain the Infinity Ward name and will likely continue to make games in the Call of Duty franchise.

Telltale has done an unrealistically amazing job at capturing the tone of each property in their games, and it appears that they have nowhere to go but up. So what other franchises could Telltale tackle in the future?

"Rovio, the developer behind the popular Angry Birds series, has released its 2013 financial results, and the numbers have raised concerns that the studio's success is starting to lose momentum.

Mashable reports that net profit fell 52% in fiscal 2013, from $77 million in 2012 to only $37 million in 2013. Revenues remained fairly steady at $216 million, up only slightly from $211 million in 2012."

Iwata talks about what Nintendo must do after the previous president, Hiroshi Yamauchi passed away.
(Granted, Yamauchi passed a while ago, so this is a bit late... RIP Yamauchi)

Nintendo is my favorite company, I hope they're not going the same route as Sega. But, it's not like something horrible is going to happen overnight, great games are still coming out and money will still be made.

With the recent evidence of a BioShock film (again) and Ken Levine's departure from the franchise, Stephen from Leviathyn asks where the series is heading.
