The holiday season is coming up and The Drill Down would like you to be ready for it. So as we do every year around this time, we’ve prepared a list of what we consider the perfect gifts to give… and get this holiday. So before you stand around for hours this Black Friday, spend some time with us. Here’s the Drill Down’s Holiday Gift Guide 2015.
The long established battle between Red Vs. Blue in Team Fortress just got a little more exciting. Valve just announced on the Team Fortress blog that they have collaborated with the team from Bad Robot productions and Escalation Studios, to come up with a new game mode for TF2 called “PASS Time.” The new game mode is ready for beta testing, which was kind of the part that fascinated Bad Robot, initially.
This week, how Apple Music stands up to competitors, warrantless surveillance expands, new hardware from Valve & Xbox, DIY lethal weapons, and a selfie that killed — literally … all that and much more.
Gabe Newell and the team at Valve have accidentally leaked the date for the start of Steam’s summer sale, according to PC World, which reports that it will be June 11, 2015.
Now this news comes with a couple of grains of salt. The information was apparently caught by IGN’s Russian contingent as the news was posted on Valve’s official social media presence on Russia’s equivalent of Facebook called VKontakte. Now that seems shady, but it was the “official” page for Valve, so there is some credibility there BUT (and this is a potential game changer) the date in question is also earlier than normal for the event. Typically, this sale comes around late June and early July and here it would be a couple of weeks early.
