Steam: All-new chat UI design now in beta!

I think it’s safe to say that after 10 years Steam is finally changing it’s user interface – and it looks great! You can check out the official website here and join the beta now to check it out on your own PC.

Keep in mind that it’s still has some small bugs and problems. Hopefully complete Steam redesign comes shortly after that because the current program is a joke comparing to Origin, UPlay and GOG. I’m not even gonna mention the Android version of the app…

E3 2018: When to watch?

Another E3 is currently happening, you can check when to watch in your timezone on this website.

List of megathreads on reddit for discussion:

Steam store to allow every game on the platform – unless it’s illegal or straight up trolling

Well Valve finally decided to end all of the controversial bullcrap and from now on they will allow every single game on Steam unless it has illegal content in it.

Here are the highlights from the Steam blog post:

  • So we ended up going back to one of the principles in the forefront of our minds when we started Steam, and more recently as we worked on Steam Direct to open up the Store to many more developers: Valve shouldn’t be the ones deciding this. If you’re a player, we shouldn’t be choosing for you what content you can or can’t buy. If you’re a developer, we shouldn’t be choosing what content you’re allowed to create.
  • With that principle in mind, we’ve decided that the right approach is to allow everything onto the Steam Store, except for things that we decide are illegal, or straight up trolling.
  • We are going to enable you to override our recommendation algorithms and hide games containing the topics you’re not interested in. So if you don’t want to see anime games on your Store, you’ll be able to make that choice.
  • Developers who build controversial content shouldn’t have to deal with harassment because their game exists, and we’ll be building tools and options to support them too.

Unreal Gold now FREE on Steam & GOG for limited time!

It’s the 20th Anniversary of Unreal! This classic FPS game is now free on Steam and GOG. If you’re too young to remember this, this is from the guys who made Fortnite. Grab the game either on Steam or Good Old Games or… both places ;-)

Will GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) affect Steam?

The GDPR regulation is almost here. After May 25th all companies that opearate in European Union are bound to respect the new laws and our privacy.

Steam is going to need to get consent from EU individuals to obtain and store personally identifying information (like name, address, phone number, email etc). This should be performed by having a user “opt in” as under the GDPR regulations “consent cannot be assumed”. From now on every single company has to communicate in a clear and understandable way why the want our data and what are they going to do with it (or won’t do), how they protect it, where do they keep it etc.

Steam GDPR, Steam alternatives

If you’re an EU citizen here are your GDPR rights:

  • Ask what information is held on you and obtain copies of your information

  • Ask if your data has been passed to any other 3rd party or affiliate and obtain their details

  • Right to be forgotten – Request that all (or some) data be removed from their system

There is no guarantees that Steam will abide those rules. Most large companies and data controllers like Google or Amazon have only chosen to update their Privacy Policies, which is not 100% GDPR compliant. We’ll see how this turns out in the following weeks.

Speaking of, our website also gathers some data like cookies, e-mail accounts (if you’ve ever join one of our giveaways, newsletter or simply left a comment etc.). From now on when you login to your account on SteamUnpowered you will have to Agree to Terms of Use Agreement & Privacy Policy. Newsletter always worked as opt in so if you’ve already signed-up for it you can always unsubscribe (look for that option at the bottom of the newsletter).

From now on you can also remove the data you’ve put in here by going into Tools>Erase personal data. To delete your account from SteamUnpowered simply go to your profile settings. If you have any other problem please send me a message on Steam.

Steam removes games with pornographic content

It seems that in around two weeks Steam is going to remove (some) games with pornographic content, even though those games don’t really contain any of that (officially). The developers of Mutiny have even discounted their game so that people could buy it before it disappears completely from Steam – you’ll still be able to play that game and download it from you account, even though it won’t be in the Steam store anymore.

steam porno, anime, games, hentai

According to that developers the new change violates what Valve Software agreed to before. In fact, the whole Visual Novel genre on Steam is feeling the effects of that decision. Every developer, either big or small, is having their games pulled. The message is clear, if your game contains any kind of anime-inspired sexy themes you’re in trouble while other games like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, The Witcher 3 (seriously) and others stay intact.

This is something that shouldn’t be happening at all, what do you guys think? Where will the anime games go? GOG? Origin?

Update: Turns out that Valve’s plan is currently on hold as they have sent out letters to game developers. By the way it’s probably this website’s fault that this even started. Here they even mention The Witcher 3.

Weird times when you can just watch hundreds of movies with violent killing scenes and weapons but if they show you a part of a woman’s titty it’s the end of the world. Since when is sex worse than violence and killing? What the fuck America?
