    Valve Reflects Back on Steam in 2018 and Looks Forward to 2019


    Valve just released a fairly comprehensive "year in review" for Steam that covers everything from the Steam Store, to active users, to a breakdown of users by region, to changes made to the Steam Community, to upcoming changes they're already working on for 2019, and more.

    Most of what is discussed in the blog is essentially a recap of what we already talked about at various times in 2018. You're more than welcome to check out the full entry for yourself, but we're going to focus on what Valve is talking about bringing to you in 2019 "and beyond."

  • Steam's Updated DLC Browsing Experience is Kind of Bad

    Steam's Updated DLC Browsing Experience is Kind of Bad


    Before this evening, if you wanted to get some DLC for a game that you owned on Steam, it was either shown through a simple dropdown menu on the game's page or as a condensed list on its own page. Today, Valve did away with both of those options and replaced them with a more spread out solution.

    These changes are talked about in a new but brief update on the Steam Blog.


    Now, all of the DLC is listed on a separate page when you click to view more. If a game has a lot of DLC, then it's spread across multiple pages. The page consists of a top banner area,...

  • Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019

    Reminder: Steam to Ditch Windows XP Support on January 1, 2019


    In case you forgot, or were simply unaware, Valve will drop Steam support for Windows XP machines beginning January 1, 2019. This more than likely doesn't really impact you unless you are one of the 0.11% that are still using Windows XP as of the November 2018 hardware survey. Of course, Microsoft ended support for XP back in 2014, meaning it has already seen four years without security patches.

    Here is what Valve announced earlier this year about their Windows XP support ending.



    New year, new you, right? Maybe that should also apply to your operating...

    Steam Reveals "Best of 2018" Lists


    It's the end of 2018 and you know what that means? No, it's not that. Nor is it that. Ew, stop it. Alright, I'll just tell you instead. It's time for Steam's "Best of 2018" lists! You probably actually guessed that given the title, but that's besides the point. Valve has compiled some lists that take a look back at the games released in 2018. These include the top sellers for the year, the best VR titles, and more! Granted, most of these were probably just automatically compiled via Steam's stat tracking, but they're still fun to take a look at.

    The catch here is...

  • Steam Reportedly Closing Down Video Section in Early 2019

    Steam Reportedly Closing Down Video Section in Early 2019


    I know this may come as a shock to a lot of you, but Steam has an entire video section where you can purchase or rent a wide variety of films like John Wick, and full series like Red vs. Blue. Honestly, I wouldn't be too surprised to learn that most people had no idea that Valve had this section available on Steam because advertising has been next to non-existent for it.

    It turns out that there may be something to it because Valve is reportedly going to pull the plug on the entire Steam video section in early 2019. This revelation comes not from Valve directly, but from the...

    PSA: The 2018 Steam Winter Sale is Here

    It's that joyous time of the year again. The time where you can spend a lot of money on yourself and retreat into a shell of isolation as you play game after game that you picked up during the latest Steam Winter Sale. It's probably a good thing then that the 2018 Steam Winter Sale is finally here.

    In addition to saving all kinds of money, Valve is also going to give you some digital goodies when you check out their "Extremely Cozy Cottage of Surprises." Sure, it sounds ominous, but I'm guessing it's nothing to worry about.

    Beyond all of this, you can cast your...

  • Discord Store Moves to Give Developers 90% of Sales Revenue

    Discord Store Moves to Give Developers 90% of Sales Revenue

    In the new war on crappy revenue splits, Discord announced today that they are going to allow all developers to self-publish their games. Not only that, but they're going to give developers a 90% revenue share for games sold through the Discord Store. That leaves just the remaining 10% for Discord to cover operating costs.

    But wait, it gets even better.

    Discord says that they may even end up lowering that 10% to a smaller amount by finding ways to optimize their technology and making things more efficient.
    Earlier this year though, we noticed a change happening in the game industry. We talked to a lot of developers, and many of them feel

  • Counter-Strike is Now Free-to-Play, Adds Battle Royale Mode

    Counter-Strike is Now Free-to-Play, Adds Battle Royale Mode

    Valve just rolled out one of the biggest updates for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It may not be the largest in terms of file size, but in terms of scope? Yeah, it's pretty big for a game like Counter-Strike. "What could it possibly be," you wonder?

    It's battle royale.

    Of course it's battle royale. This mode has been rumored for a while and now it's finally here. The new mode is called "Danger Zone" and along with this new mode comes some additional surprising news. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now a free-to-play game. In addition, everyone that owned the game before today's move to being a F2P title have been granted Prime Status from Valve. Given that Prime Status was being used as a tool to play in an environment relatively free from cheaters and smurfs, your gameplay experiences over the next few weeks may suck until VAC d...

  • Artifact is Out Now from Valve

    Artifact is Out Now from Valve

    Valve has released a new game. I hope you were sitting down for that one because that sentence probably knocked you on your ass and tea bagged you.

    Valve's Artifact has been released on Steam for $19.99 (USD). It's a card battling game based around Dota 2 characters, locations, and abilities. It was created alongside the famous designer Richard Garfield, so it has a high chance of being pretty damn good.

    We have a new trailer to show off with you today. In addition, there is another comic that you can read. This one is called "Call to Arms." Call to Arms also happens to be the name of the game's first set.
    The trailer gives a taste of the

    At long last, the waking nightmare is over for Dota 2 fans. They can rest easy now because the 7.20 update is now live for the game. The changelog is long and the item changes are numerous.

    I'm not even going to repost the changelog here, that's just how long it is.

    You Dota fans go have fun now. From what I gather, this update has been a bit of a wait for you....

    The Halloween content for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is here. Valve released an update for CS:GO today that turns all players into ghosts when they die. These apparitions can be seen by other ghosts in the world, apply graffiti in the world, and more.

    I'm also hearing the chickens are ready for some tricks and/or treats.

  • Valve Delays Artifact Beta

    Valve Delays Artifact Beta

    Valve's beta for Artifact has been delayed until November 19. The beta was supposed to begin this month but that isn't happening. There is also concern that the game itself, which is still slated to begin on November 28, will also be pushed back due to the very late start on the beta.

    PC Gamer seems to be the first outlet to notice this delay. They spotted a tweet by Wykrhm Reddy, a known tester for Valve, in which the November 19 date was prominently featured for the start of the beta.
    This date was then confirmed by others who reported receiving emails announcing the November 19 release date for th...
