Steam Games Abstractism Is Virus Crypto Miner and TF2 Scam Items

Patreon ► https://patreon.com/SidAlpha Paypal ► https://www.paypal.me/SidAlpha Twitter ► https://twitter.com/SidAlpha Yesterday it was announced on the site Backpack.tf that a user there had bought what he thought was a Team Fortress 2 Australium Rocket Launcher but he instead received a scam item with the same picture from a new game called Abstractism. In addition to that, it was discovered that this game distributes a virus to your PC that the developers claim is not a virus and that the virus is likely a Crypto Miner. With the use of the item system coupled with crypto mining, we may have the replacement for the asset flip right here.

I will now respond to the Montoya "SidAlpha is wrong about Star Citizen" Video

Patreon ► https://patreon.com/SidAlpha Paypal ► https://www.paypal.me/SidAlpha Twitter ► https://twitter.com/SidAlpha In response to my video discussing the $27,000 Star Citizen Ship Pack, a smaller YouTuber that goes by “Montoya” created a response video titled “SidAlpha is WRONG about Star Citizen”. As many people have asked me what I thought and I decided to now provide that. In this video we discuss the game development seeming to be in limbo, the Star Citizen Roadmap, Ship sales, crowd funding vs. Publishers, and general clarification of misconceptions.

EA deleted an Origin Account And All Of A Person's Games

Patreon ► https://patreon.com/SidAlpha Paypal ► https://www.paypal.me/SidAlpha Twitter ► https://twitter.com/SidAlpha The user Flyingofficer found his EA Origin account and all of his games had been deleted by EA without warning or notification. Origin support was not very helpful and this incident shows a very dangerous potential hole in EA account management.

Star Trek Discovery and the Return of Picard: The Controversies Behind The Scenes

On August 4th, Patrick Stewart announced he would reprise his signature of Jean Luc Picard, to universal praise. The enthusiasm for the future Picard series if anything greater than the enthusiasm for the second season of “Star Trek Discovery”, despite the promise that it will feature both the Enterprise, Captain Pike and a young Spock. However, both Star Trek Discovery and the upcoming Picard series, as well as all future CBS All Access Star Strek incarnations planned under Alex Kurtzman’s watch, are heavily rumored to build towards a certain corporate goal for Star Trek, one which longtime fans will take issue with. In this video, we look back at the controversies and behind the scenes issues of Star Trek Discovery’s first season, and how these issues have continued and even escalated behind the scenes of season two. Then, we will look into the Picard revival series and which direction it might take, before exploring the corporate rights issues that are the underlying cause of all the problems – and why subverting established canon may be a deliberate corporate goal. Please share the video, and subscribe to Midnight’s Edge to stay up to date for more news and behind the scenes revelations from the world of Star Trek. Also, check out our sister channel Midnight’s Edge After Dark, as well as Overlord DVD, where the news revealed in Midnight’s Edge videos will be dissected and discussed with fans in live shows. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBNyrK-MTsjnQ7y6U-Eg3kA https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeCJB88u93eq91U0rlJsW-A If you like what we do, please consider supporting us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/midnightsedge Why CBS All Access is so important to Leslie Moonves and VPS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jxR87a9eK8 Selected earlier Star Trek Coverage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQcLLfzzKWA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I3y3_QmBsQ Special thanks to Zev Levi Rogan for old man Picard picture Please subscribe, and follow us on Facebook: Facebook.com/Groups/MidnightsEdge

The Culling 2 is being shut down and The Culling goes back to Day 1 version

Patreon ► https://patreon.com/SidAlpha Paypal ► https://www.paypal.me/SidAlpha Twitter ► https://twitter.com/SidAlpha Xaviant, the Developers of The Culling and The Culling 2 have announced that The Culling 2 will be removed from sale and they will be issuing refunds. In addition to that, they issue an apology for both games and have dedicated themselves to reverting The Culling back to it’s Day 1 version and will be making the game free to play. In this discussion video I do what I always do, offer commentary and opinion on this BR indie game. Because I'm opinionated like that.

The game “Alien Hunt 3D” by Tonye Amienyo on the Steam Storefront is not only a broken game that will not function at all, but it has been confirmed that the game’s executable contains a crypto miner virus. Valve’s lack of basic security standards and quality assurance has now placed Steam Users into jeapordy should they purchase indie games on the Steam Storefront. Crypto Miners are the new asset flip and Valve needs to respond to this very real threat to their customers.
