This past weekend Valve announced that they were ending the Steam Greenlight program and moving to an upfront-fee submission program called "Steam Direct." Instead of the current system, where developers pay a one-time $100 fee and the Steam community votes on which games should be allowed onto the store, developers will pay a $200–$5000 fee to directly place a game on the Steam Store.

At a passing glance this logic is sound. But head inside to read more.

An item called the Motion-Sensor Bomb has been a staple in the Super Smash Bros. games since the series got its start on Nintendo 64, and many fans know of the item's extensive ties to the "Proximity Mine" found in Rareware's iconic Nintendo 64 adaption of GoldenEye 007, as well as their later Nintendo 64 hit, Perfect Dark.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon players can stop by certain GameStop or EB Games stores to retrieve a code for an in-game item. The code rewards players with a silver bottle cap, which can be used in the game to boost one of your Pokémon's stats during Hyper Training. If you aren't familiar with Hyper Training, make sure your Pokémon is above level 100 and trade the bottle cap with Mr. Hyper in the shopping mall to grow one aspect of your Pokémon's power.

The promotion will run from now until March 5th, so make sure to grab a code if you haven't already!

Final Fantasy XV was a game that had been in developmental hell for years, and some believed it would never come out. After a couple of delays, though, Final Fantasy XV was finally released in November to universal acclaim. Considering the long developmental process, many wondered how much it would need to sell in order for the game to be profitable.

But Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has finally confirmed that the Hero's clothes are indeed available to players.

The press releases that go along with these ratings are pretty boring, especially when it comes to Nintendo games, as they don't tend to contain very suggestive content. The rating for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a different story, however, as it's actually surprisingly funny and conservative, and even tells us a bit about the game.
