Interestingly, over the coming weeks you'll get to watch us (meaning me) transition from, "It's far too hot to be outside, let's play video games instead" to, "It's far too cold to be outside, let's play video games instead".  I also suspect there to be an occasional, "Wow, it sure is nice outside.  Anyway, who's up for some video games?"

There's no need to worry about trying to track down some kind of RF box adapter in order to try and get this thing to work with your modern HDTV, this NES redux comes with a built-in HDMI port and an HDMI cable. You'll also get an NES Classic Controller to use with the system so you can really relive all of that 1980s glory.

This weekend the GMG fired up their own Bethesda PC gaming sale with some impressive prices across the Bethesda game series. The best of the bunch by far is the May 2016 released Doom dropping to $35.99 instantly and after a 20% off stacking coupon falling further to $28.79. Hot deal for a 2-month old AAA. The game's co-op play is available in custom made scenarios and maps from the community in Snap Map.

There have been mutterings and rumors abound about a third game in the popular zombie shooting co-op franchise, and this is by no means any kind of confirmation that the title is being worked on. But getting a tease like that lead many folks to dig further and look at things like the developer's recent play activities on Steam. Apparently, he's been spending a lot of time with Left 4 Dead 2, leading some to wonder if it's actually Left 4 Dead 3 and the dev is just putting it up behind that title.

Of course, I'd be remiss if I failed to mention the most important activity this weekend: Steam's 2016 Summer Sale.  Not quite sure how to navigate Gabe Newell's Labyrinth of Splendorous Savings?  Afraid you'll happen upon the minotaur that lives within the confines of those discounts?  Let our Staff Picks be your guide!

Have you ever really enjoyed playing an online multiplayer game, only to have the server abandoned? This is one of the most frustrating aspects of online multiplayer games, but it does happen to all games eventually. Sometimes companies feel the need to officially move on from a video game and shut it down. Whether this is due to poor sales, a new ...

Like some sort of post-apocalyptic scavengers, the Co-opticrew will be scouring the Summer Steam Sale for tiny bits of morsel to stow away in hidden pockets.  Occasionally, when we're all alone, we'll pull them out for a brief moment and just look at them.  Never consuming, only admiring.  Such are the ways of PC gaming.
