Lastly in news Valve released a new VR demo called "Moondust" but the catch is the entire theme is Portal so you could call it Portal: Moondust and again it's just a VR demo no story, showing off the new Steam VR controllers "Knuckles" EV2 prototype. Also it's for developers only but you can download it via the Steam community page and the catch with it that the system will only work with the Steam VR controllers only. Luckily Valve posted up a video showing off the content for us users that don't have a VR headset.

***Cry of Fear mod news, Dota 2’s Underhollow is a dud, Netherlands bans loot boxes and Steam Summer sale starts tomorrow***

In Cry of Fear mod news a new co-op mod "The Acid: Deja Vu" popped up a few days ago now has its first development blog on the plot of the project.

Link:
Development News #1 The Acid: Deja Vu Moddb blog post- www.moddb.com/mods/the-acid-de…

Next in the Dota scene since the addition to the battle pass the Underhollow mode "MOBA-royalesk" well from Rock, Paper, Shotgun it didn't go well and they go into a lengthy blog on what went wrong.

Link:
Dota 2’s Underhollow mode is underwhelmingly hollow Rock, Paper, Shotgun blog post- www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/…
------------

Looks like the banning of loot boxes have finally begun back in April the Netherlands gaming authority did an investigation on if loot boxes are gambling and as of today they not just concluded it's now in full effect on all games that have these and must be removed so Valve made this statement on it.

(From Reddit image post and PC Gamer)

Dear Counter-Strike: Global Offensive customers,

In May, we received two letters from the Dutch Kansspelautoriteit, stating that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 contain ‘loot boxes’ that violate the Dutch Betting and Gaming Act. The Kansspelautoriteit accusation is different from how other countries think about loot boxes, so we hired Dutch legal counsel, looked at the recent Study into Loot Boxes published by the Kansspelautoriteit, and learned more about Dutch law. We still don’t understand or agree with the Kansspelautoriteit’s legal conclusion, and we’ve responded to explain more about CS:GO and Dota 2.

In the meantime, we have a threat from the Kansspelautoriteit to prosecute Valve if we don’t implement a remedy by June 20. The letters don’t tell us how to do that, but the Study into Loot Boxes does contain one rather simplistic statement:

"Loot boxes contravene the law if the in-game goods from the loot boxes are transferable. Loot boxes do not contravene the law if the in-game goods from the loot boxes are not transferable."

So for now our only practical alternative is to disable trading and Steam Marketplace transfers for CS:GO and Dota 2 items for Dutch customers. We apologize to you for this inconvenience. We hope that, after more engagement with the Kansspelautoriteit, they may refine their legal demands and we can find a solution that is less inconvenient.


So the fine if caught will be €830,000 (approximately $959,000 USD / £729,600 / $1,300,000 AUD), or a portion (10%) of worldwide turnover and that may not seem not much but these are microtransactions it's on a different level.

Alright let's end tonight with something more stressful then loot boxes how about the Steam Summer Sale is going live tomorrow as of this blog post yep SteamDB twitter stated that "Steam Summer Sale will begin in 24 hours" that was 10 am today so 10 am tomorrow it will go live.

CSGO drops a brand new interactive UI preview (still in beta) giving the games menus a snazzy new look.
