Steam announced today that it will no longer accept Bitcoin, an invisible currency we never knew it had accepted, anyway. Citing Bitcoin’s volatility and increasing processing fees, Steam says Bitcoin is no longer tenable for them as a payment option. Isn’t this the kind of thing it was made for in the first place?
Previous attempts at creating a gaming-centric smartphone include phones with slide-out game controllers, a cross between a Sony PlayStation Portable and a phone and the Nokia N-Gage.

Naturally it’s the next big thing in the super convoluted world of cryptocurrencies, where people spend a lot of time cooking up fancy new names for pyramid schemes. Like people who hoarded Beanie Babies back in the day, digital collectors…
Hell is a game about cooking eggs. Drop an egg into the pan and watch it sizzle before cracking another egg. But be careful: one wrong move will send you down a road full of demons, pirated DVDs, a Ruger pistol, and the devil himself. It’s bizarre, and it’s this week’s indie pick.
Dragon’s Crown Pro, a PS4 remaster of the 2013 action game, is coming to North America this spring, publisher Atlus said today. Not sure what else to say. There’s absolutely nothing controversial about this one. Just another video game, coming out this spring. For PS4.

Niantic has begun its roll out of the third generation of monsters in Pokémon Go with fifty critters from the Hoenn region, and more slated to come later in the year.
