Valve sure is generous when it comes to giving out goodies to the gaming community. After recently making its well-loved team multiplayer game, Team Fortress 2, a free to play game ? it turns out that they’re not done yet. The company has just announced that the Source SDK will soon become free to use in its entirety for everyone.
For those of you who have no idea what the Source SDK is, it’s basically everything you need to make your own mods or games using the Source engine. Previously in order to gain access to the SDK, users had to purchase a game that runs on the Source engine, i.e. Half Life 2 or Team Fortress 2. Now, without the need to even purchase a Source-based game, everyone can have access to the tools.
While there hasn’t been an announced ETA for the free Source SDK, Valva has mentioned that it is working on getting it all done ? there are currently a few versions of the SDK available, so they need to sort it out first. Stay tuned for more details. Any of you planning to create your own Source mod/game now that you know the SDK is going to be free?

If you were big on FPS games in the early 2000s, I’m pretty sure you would have been part of the Counter-Strike-playing crowd, and if you were you would probably remember every nook and cranny of one of its most famous maps: de_dust. Now imagine being able to explore the map ? in real life.

It looks like Facebook is out to make its Places service a much better experience for its users. The company has been reported to be testing new features to help improve the location database that powers Facebook Places (Facebook’s version of Foursquare ? where people can check into places/events to let their friends know where they are or just to keep a history of where they’ve been) and to get deals.
Facebook now has a Places Editor app that allows its users to help improve the service by flagging duplicate Places, and tagging a Place by its category and type. With practically an infinite number of locations and so many users ? there’s bound to be duplicates and badly tagged locations throughout the service. The staff at Facebook can’t possibly keep track of everything that’s going on, so enlisting the help of its users to make it a better service seems like a great idea. How many of you are regular Facebook Places users, and what made you choose it over another location based service i.e. Gowalla/Foursquare?

The New York Times was issued a warning by the Cupertino company to include in-app subscriptions on its iOS app by June 30th or face removal. While it seems like the newspaper was going to stay defiant until the end, it looks like they were given a one day extension which they used to enable in-app purchasing through its iPad newspaper.
