Goat Simulator is now super cheap on Bundle Stars! It’s a Steam redeemable key.
SimCity done right is now on sale, get it on Kinguin. It’s a Steam redeemable key!
The Steam store has been updated today. It has a lot of new functional settings and finally looks better! I bet most of you guys won’t be able to switch to the new UI just yet, but lets all agree we needed a change after all these years.
The new update is called Discovery Update 2.0 – the next milestone of the Discovery Update released in 20014. Valve did a lot of good work on this one. The new design reduces the number of clicks you need to do in case you want to find something. The old store was a mess. Especially with all of those Early Access Titles on the main page, you can finally hide them!
Valve is now enforcing real screenshots in the store for each game – not some Photoshop bullshit ones.
Here are the highlights of the update!
More direct links to common destinations. Plus, sections you probably didn’t even know we had.
Now in the upper-right corner of every game image you will find a quick menu of options including quick access to your Preferences, allowing you to further customize your Steam shopping experience.
Quickly get back to products you’ve been browsing.
Whether it’s a hot new release, joining a special event, or getting back into a game that was recently updated, now it’s easy to tell what your friends are excited about.
If you are following Steam curators, we’ve added a clickable preview of their latest reviews and recommendations.
More of the good stuff:
- there is a top sellers list based on country now
- the translations have been updated
- Steam now notifies you if a game from your wishlist is on sale
- the review system has been updated too

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare: You won’t be able to play with Steam players if you bought the game on Windows Store
I have no idea who the fuck thought that’s a good idea but according to Activision’s support page you won’t be able to play online with your friends who bought the game on Steam or Windows Store. You either have to own one or another to play with your friends!
Also you can’t even play between Windows 10 and Xbox One players. So you’re probably out of luck if you bought it on Windows Store, for some odd reason, because I really doubt a great number of players are going to buy it there, multiplayer is probably going to be dead after few months…
I do understand that Microsoft simply didn’t want the game client to install Steam in the background but if this thing continues and games are going to be non-playable online between platforms (just like consoles?) this is going to suck big time.

If you happen to be a peasant and own a PlayStation 4 you will be happy to hear that Steam is going to officially support the DualShock controller. Valve announced that on Steam Dev Days so I guess we can expect that feature to be live in early 2017 or right before the winter sale.
According to various media around the globe Valve Software is currently working on it’s Steam mobile app. It appears that in early 2017 you will be able to watch streams of some sort of video materials on your mobile device – documentaries, tutorials, full length movies and even TV shows.
Steam video library keeps on expanding, over the last few months they have added a lot of videos to the library, although it’s limited by region it’s still pretty impressive.
Would you be using Steam instead of services like Netflix or HBO?
