What to pick up in the Steam Summer Sale

Every summer on Steam, there’s a mega discount sale on thousands of games across the platform. But with so much variety, what do you buy? Well, here are our picks on what to buy for the best price.

beamNG.drive                                                                                                 (£18.99 – £12.72)

One of the best car destruction games ever. Seriously, this game has one of the best physics engines we have ever seen! It has everything you could possibly want from a game like this: ridiculous physics, structurally unstable cars, and tons of levels to play! Don’t like any of the vehicles? Just visit the steam workshop and download some from there. Go wild.

Worth Rating:  7/10

Prison Architect                                                                                                (£19.99 – £4.99)

Ever fancied managing your own prison? Prison Architect is the best prison management game there is, and with the price dropping from £19.99 to only £4.99, this one is definitely worth it! What’s more, for only 50p extra you can get 4 more games bundled with it: Darwinia, DEFCON, Multiwinia and Uplink. Totally worth it!

Worth Rating 9/10

Fallout 4                                                                                                               (£19.99 – £9.99)

You’ve probably already heard of the wasteland roaming masterpiece that is Fallout 4, but if not, then we’d highly recommend you get it! Play as the “sole survivor” as you explore the dilapidated wastes around you in search for your kidnapped son. And anyway, reduced by £10?! You’re basically stealing at this point, go buy it!

Worth Rating 8/10

Half Life 2                                                                                                              (£6.99 – £0.69)

Even though this game may be over 10 years old, it still is one of the greatest games ever made. Become Gordon Freeman, and take on a mission to free humanity, using the range of weapons you accumulate travelling through the game. This first person shooter keeps you hooked until the last minute, leaving you wanting more!

Worth Rating 9/10

Sims 3                                                                                                                   (£24.99 – £6.24)

The Sims 3 is a life simulation game, in which you create a character/characters, and essentially play god to their lives! We suggest that you should definitely pick up this game up before the deal is over on the main game and all the DLC too.

Worth Rating 7/10

Geometry Dash                                                                                                    (£2.79 – £0.69)

If you have ever been on our blog before, you might have seen a couple posts on this game. Geometry Dash is a fast paced, 2D, rhythm based platformer, where you traverse levels using a range of different vehicles. If you can’t tell, we are massive fans of Geometry Dash, and would honestly recommend this game to anyone, especially as the price has dropped in the sale.

Worth Rating 10/10

How to Become a God in Portal

Ever opened up Portal and thought, “Oh man, I wish there were some cool hidden features in this awesome sci-fi adventure game!” You have? Well then, this article may be the most exciting thing you read all year!

To be able to unlock the powers of a God, you will first have to activate the developer console. You can see how in the slideshow below, but there are instructions below too. The same instructions apply in Portal 2 as well.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

  1. Go to options

  2. Keyboard > Advanced > Enable Developer Console

  3. Click ‘OK’, then exit back to the main menu

Now that’s all done, go and create a new game on a level of your choosing, and press the tilde key (the key above tab). A grey box should appear on your screen. If not, just repeat the above steps. If it still doesn’t work, your computer is haunted. Burn it and run.

Before you go and type commands in, you need to input this very important one first, which will give you the abilities to become invincible, no-clip everywhere and even spawn in your very own jeep! Here it is:

sv_cheats 1 

I bet you thought it was something more complicated. When you’ve done that, feel free to input any code from the list below and have fun!

Just to warn you, if you try and do a challenge map with cheats turned on, the attempt that you did will not be counted, so be wary of that.

List of most fun/useful cheats:

noclip – This makes it so that the first person camera isn’t obstructed by objects. In short, you can go through walls!

god – Invincibility.

buddha – You can take damage but won’t die.

firstperson – First person viewing.

thirdperson – Third person viewing.

notarget – Turrets will not shoot you, no matter how hard you tea-bag.

What is Pokémon GO?

If you’ve been on the internet recently, then you’ll almost definitely have heard of the hit mobile game Pokémon GO! But what is it? What do you do? WHERE’S THAT PIKACHU? Read on to find the answers to all these questions!Pokemon Go.jpg

So, what is Pokémon GO? Well, it’s what every Pokémon fan has wanted since the TV show hit our screens. Real life Pokémon! Ok, I say “real life”. By that, I mean Pokémon visible only through your phones, but come on, it’s a good compromise!

Unfortunately however, there is one downside. To catch Pokémon, you need to travel in real life, which is rather inconvenient to those who hate the outside world. But hey, if you want Pokémon, you’re going to have to leave the house.

PikachuOn another bad note, the game isn’t currently available on Windows phones, which sucks. However, if you do want it to come to Windows, you can sign a petition here.
At the moment the only Pokémon in the game are the original 151. I’m hoping they’ll update to the full 721, all the way from Bulbasaur to the latest, Volcanion. As for Pikachu, I’m still searching. However, there is a trick to finding him, which we’ll be writing a post about on this blog, so keep your eyes out for that!

As long as Pokémon and Niantu keep updating the game, and people keep playing it, I think that Pokémon GO has a great future, and could go down as one of the best Pokémon games of all time!

Geometry Dash – The Vault Codes

Now you’ve unlocked The Vault, it’s time to input some codes to get awesome loot!

Sparky: +1 coin!


Blockbite: Unlocks a new demon-like UFO.


Neverending: Unlocks a UFO. With lil’ spiky bits.

The numbers ‘8, 16, 30, 32, 46, 84’ all typed separately (type 8 in enter that, type 16 enter that and so… on): THE ILLUMINATI WAVE
