Valve Offers Suggestions on Reducing Steam Bandwidth

Budget that bandwidth during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Everyone is at home. If not, they probably should be. 2020 has been crazy wild and it's still only March. One of the things people have been doing more of, is playing games. What else is there to do when you're under quarantine? Work? HA! Screw that!

Review: Persona 5 Royal

A master class in improving upon what is already great.

Despite a few minor issues, it was largely regarded as a fantastic JRPG with excellent art, an intriguing cast of characters, enjoyable gameplay, and even a rad soundtrack. Persona...

    Steam No Longer Counts Review Scores from People Who Didn't Pay

    Have you received a game for free on Steam? Did you then review that game? If so, your review score no longer counts towards the game's overall score on Steam.

    With the changes we are making now, the review score (shown at the top of store pages and in various places throughout the store such as search results) will no longer include

    CS:GO Player Uses Exploit to Spam Chat and Avoid Kicks

    Reddit has made the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community aware of a player (or players) that has been going around to servers, spamming chat, and avoiding being kicked.

    The user is on some sort of crusade to make Valve aware of cheaters in CS:GO by going about it in one of the most ass-backwards ways possible. All that Valve has done so far is provide a small solution to mitigate the exploit that the user is making use of. In the longer term Valve is "working on a solution"...

    Valve Working on Three "Full" VR Games

    Valve still wants people to know that they make video games. In a recent media round table event at Valve's Bellevue HQ, Gabe Newell stated that their studio is working on three full virtual reality titles.
    "Right now we're building three VR games."

    Naw, just kidding. He did say a bit more about these projects but not much more.
