We have two whole updates to share with you today courtesy of Valve. The first is word of a new Steam client update. The second is an update that was released today for Team Fortress 2. It's like a NewsBits, but smaller and potentially way less interesting.

In addition to today's Team Fortress 2 update, there was an update released just yesterday that kicked off the Scream Fortress XIV event, bringing some Halloween scares and items to the game.
