Steam: Valve now accepts Greenlight refunds!

Update: As DoubleD pointed out in the comment below: This is not about Greenlight games…. It’s about the Greenlight fee you had to pay in order to put something on Greenlight. Sorry for the retardation :D I didn't realize what I wrote... That's right, from now on you can request a refund for those shitty Greenlight games that you've bought. At least according to this reddit post.

Valve to replace Steam Greenlight with Steam Direct!

At first Steam Greenlight was looking really good, the idea of it, but today I can easily say that the Steam store has been cluttered with all of those shitty games that no one wants to play and fake reviews for free games. Valve has been dissatisfied with Steam Greenlight as well, even Gabe Newell described the system as "probably bad for the Steam community" in 2013. A year later, he…

Valve asking devs to no longer give games for Greenlight votes

"We do not think these votes accurately reflect customer interest and it makes our job harder in deciding which games customers would actually buy and play on Steam." "Additionally. when you give away copies of your…

Hatred back on Steam Greenlight, thanks to Gabe!

This is awesome! According to the game's developers, Gabe Newell contacted them to say the following: "Yesterday I heard that we were taking Hatred down from Greenlight. Since I wasn't up to speed, I asked around internally to find out why we had done that. It turns out that it wasn't a good decision, and we'll be putting Hatred back up. My apologies to you and your team. Steam is about creating…

Hatred removed from Steam Greenlight after few hours

Steam Greenlight is one of those things that sounded good in theory but after a while most of the gamers I know hate it, so many crappy, unfinished games on there it's kind of funny. Of course ther are exceptions but few weeks ago they allowed Postal on Greenlight without any problem and when the makers of Hatred put up their mass murdering game on Steam Greenlight it gets taken…

Gabe Newell’s new vision for Steam: More choice

Gabe commented on Steam's approval process: Steam is a "dictatorship" and that has to change. At a candid talk at the University of Texas recently, Newell outlined his vision of where Steam is going: doing away with the approval process, converting Steam into a network API that any developer can call, transferring ownership of its "boring" storefront to its users and, surprisingly, killing off the "Greenlight" crowd-voted approval process introduced…
