CES 2022 loses Microsoft in Las Vegas over COVID fears
Microsoft is the latest company to drop a physical presence at CES, as the increased prevalence of COVID-19 spooks exhibitors. It joins a growing list of major companies ditching the world’s largest technology show.

“After reviewing the latest data on the rapidly evolving COVID environment, Microsoft has decided not to participate in-person at CES 2022,” a company spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement. (The spokesperson declined to give their name because that’s how Microsoft prefers to announce event status changes.) Instead, the company will have a digital presence for both the Microsoft Partner Innovation Experience and Automotive Press Kit.

Microsoft was a featured exhibitor at the technology conference, and is now the latest to say it will not attend. Lenovo, T-Mobile, Amazon, the company formerly known as Facebook, GM, Intel, Twitter and Google have all pulled out, citing COVID-19 fears. The disease has been rapidly rising in prevalence again in the U.S., as a new variant sweeps through the population.

Yesterday, CES organizers insisted the event would go on regardless, with required proof of vaccination, masks, and free rapid tests. On Wednesday, the Consumer Technology Association, which organizes the event, said 42 exhibitors have canceled.

Best Steam Winter Sale 2021 Deals
The year is nearly over, and like clockwork, that means one thing for PC gamers: another opportunity to pick up PC games for cheap. The 2021 Steam winter sale is now live, and it brings deals on a ridiculous number of games. Whether you're a longtime PC fan, someone who only recently got into the PC gaming scene, or a Steam Deck preorder holder who's eager to load up on games before the system's launch next year, you have a frankly dizzying number of options in front of you. And we're here to help.

Below, we've rounded up some of the best deals in the Steam winter sale. Our staff has scoured through the list of what's on sale to come up with some highlights that we think are worth your time and money. Also bear in mind that Steam may not have the cheapest offer possible on these and other games--Epic has a very nice sale going on with its coupons, or if you're insistent on getting games playable on Steam, stores like Fanatical have promotions going that include Steam keys. As with anything, be sure to shop around a bit if you want to ensure you get the best price. The Steam sale runs from now until January 5 at 10 AM PT.

List of Games - gamespot



Here are the best selling Steam games of 2021
As 2021 draws to a close, Valve has published Steam’s annual best of lists, revealing this year’s top sellers, top new releases, most-played games, and more. Valve’s data shows that many of Steam’s most popular games on any given day, including nearly decade-old titles like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Grand Theft Auto 5, continue to outsell and be played more than newcomers to the PC platform.

Each list from Valve’s end-of-year wrap-up contains a handful of games with their orders randomly listed, so it’s not clear which individual game was the best-selling or most-played in a particular category. Games in the Platinum tier are in the top 12, with Gold-tier games accounting for ranks 13-24. Silver games are ranks 25 through 40 and bronze tier games account for ranks 41-100. These lists come from internal Valve data starting on Jan. 1, 2021 and ending Dec. 15, 2021.

The most important item on Steam’s best of 2021 list is the top sellers, letting players know what the most successful games of the year were. The Platinum-tier 2021 Best Selling Games were, in a random order provided by Valve:

  • Apex Legends
  • PUBG: Battlegrounds
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Battlefield 2042
  • Naraka: Bladepoint
  • Dead by Daylight
  • Destiny 2
  • New World
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege
  • Valheim
  • Dota 2
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
In a blog post, Valve called out some interesting repeat offenders. Dota 2, CS:GO, and GTA5 have all made the top sellers list for six years running, with PUBG: Battlegrounds and Rainbow Six Siege each on the list for their fifth time in a row. Destiny 2 has made the list three years running, with 2019 being its first year on Steam after moving off of Blizzard’s Battle.net.

There are a few first-time winners on the list as well. New games like Battlefield 2042, New World, and Valheim all grace the list. Apex Legends is also notable, as its a non-2021 game that made its Steam debut late last year.

New releases is another interesting category, highlighting the top 25 new games of the year. The Platinum-tier 2021 Top New Releases, in a random order provided by Valve:

  • Age of Empires 4
  • Back 4 Blood
  • Forza Horizon 5
  • Outriders
  • Valheim
  • Halo Infinite
  • Resident Evil Village
  • Battlefield 2042
  • New World
  • Mass Effect: Legendary Edition
  • Naraka: Bladepoint
  • Farming Simulator 22
Valve also offered a breakdown of the months the new releases appeared in compared to 2020. Last year had a decent March and some strong fall months. 2021 was a bit more sporadic, with three big months with four or five entrants each: May, September, and November.

Finally, we’ll look at the most-played games on Steam, which is broken into multiple categories by concurrent players. Here are the 2021 games that cracked 200,000 concurrent players, randomly ordered by Valve:

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • New World
  • Dota 2
  • Valheim
  • PUBG: Battlegrounds
  • Apex Legends
  • Halo Infinite
  • Rust
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Grand Theft Auto 5
Many of these games appeared on last year’s list, including Dota 2, GTA5, PUBG, and CS:GO. Rust is a graduate from the 100,000 list from last year, giving it an even better 2021 than 2020.

Several of last year’s 200K games have also fallen to lower categories. Destiny 2 and Among Us fell into the 100K category in 2021 after making the top list last year. 2020 200K game Terraria fell to the 60K list. Monster Hunter: World, another top played game of 2020, plummeted to the 30K list. Life is Strange 2 and Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, both 200K games in 2020, don’t appear anywhere on the most-played games of 2021.

The best of 2021 Steam list also offers some additional categories we won’t list out here. If you’re interested in top early access graduates, top-selling VR games, and top controller games, you can check out Valve’s official blog post.

Grand Theft Auto Online Weekly Update Gives Every Player A New Car
Rockstar Games is seemingly in the spirit of giving, as anyone who logs on for Grand Theft Auto Online's weekly update for the next week gets a free car.

The Gallivanter Baller ST--a brand new vehicle in the GTA Online world--will appear for free in the Legendary Motorsport in-game store from now until December 29. The car comes with the Festive Stripes livery so you can decorate your new toy for the holiday season.

The weekly update also brings a special holiday care package to all players containing a Clownfish Mask for heists, a Red Festive Tee, a Fireworks launcher with 25 rounds, and multiple other explosives.

All previously available holiday outfits have returned for purchase to clothing stores, as have four classic GTA Online game modes: In & Out, Stockpile, Resurrection, and Tiny Racers. The Baller ST isn't the only car in this update, as the Overflod Zeno sports car hits the Legendary Motorsport store for purchase with in-game currency.

This weekly update is the first after The Contract, a new story-based update featuring GTA V protagonist Franklin and the real-world musical icon Dr. Dre. Players can help Dre find some of his unreleased music, then listen to it all afterward.
