Remember the last time when Valve tried to introduce paid mods on Steam? It didn’t go well and it did not survive contact with the PC gaming community. When the proposal was announced in April 2015 with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as a pilot game it mostly got negative feedback. Shortly after that Valve removed the feature altogether. To
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
If you’re unfamiliar with how skin gambling works in Team Fortress 2 it’s basically a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive clone made by Valve. They have released the following statement recently:
“In July of last year we outlined our position on gambling web sites, specifically noting that Valve has no business relationship with these sites. At that time we also began
Ever heard of Wyatt Derp? No? It’s fine, I bet most of us haven’t but the guys who created the game decided to sue 100 gamers who posted negative reviews on Steam. For $18 million! Yep.
The have a history of suing, especially game critic Jim Sterling (from YouTube) with a ridiculous $10 million lawsuit for posting rude
Since I’ve started using Steam back in 2007 I had this little obsession of mine, well more of a concern. You see, every now and then I have some sort of paranoia that I might get VAC banned for no reason, like I sometimes read online.
I used to be very cautious of what I’m running in
Every time there is a Steam sale on the horizon I think of buying something but when the event launches and I see the main store page I just can’t browse it. Why? The store displays all of the offers randomly, which means I can’t focus on any particular offer. I really preferred the old way of presenting
According to the latest data, Valve has sold around 500 000 Steam controllers which isn’t exactly the best number. They have been officially selling the controller since November 2015. It’s been over half a year and what’s even worse the number also includes all of the controllers sold with Steam Machines (all of them have at least
Remember that community translation drama on Steam? Former Valve employee files a $3.1 million lawsuit over wrongful dismissal. The suit also alleges employee misclassification and a hostile work environment. Read the suit here – it claims that the employee’s primary responsibility was translating content into Spanish, although she also served as a liaison with law enforcement in Spanish-speaking countries and worked
Here is some really bad info from reddit/r/Steam guys, Victor, a translator and ex-moderator from the Spanish Steam Translation Server team, posted a really concerning message regarding Steam Translation Server program:
“Valve employee also known for being the Head Admin and creator of STS, has been harassing, lying, discrediting, creating an oppressive, intimidating environment, and overall doing questionable
On January 1st 2016 Valve updated their subscriber agreement. Here are the most important parts:
Valve is now selling hardware in the European Union (the Steam Controller and Steam Link). Hardware distribution in Europe will be the primary responsibility of Luxembourg subsidiary, known as Valve SARL.
In recent Kotaku interview with Erik Johnson about the current Steam Support, Valve employee told that progress is being made on Valve’s side of things, it’s just not visible yet:
“We started by realizing we had a lot of software to write to build a new support system,” Johnson explained. “The first feature that came of that was the ability
Game Bans system is now available on Steam but don’t worry, those bans have to be requested by the developer. This allows the game makers to maintain their own games in ways that Steam couldn’t. Developer is also likely to have the time and resources to ban cheaters in hackers from its own title. It takes the burden of ban appeals off Valve’s
Valve updated the policy for new Steam accounts recently. From now on you won’t be able to do those things in the list below until you actually pay at least $5 on Steam (probably 5€ in Europe?). Adding retail CD-Keys to the account won’t remove those restrictions either, which is good because there are tons of free CD-Keys on the
You probably all have noticed that the Steam Subscriber Agreement has been updated to include some new rules especially when it comes to the 14 days return time in European Union. And no, you can’t do that on Steam (at least according to them) but is this completely legal or fair? See this little checkbox that pops up
Steam applied more restrictions to gifts activation and trading. New rules limit the number of countries gifts could be activated in. Gamers located in some parts of Europe and South America (and regions visible below on the screenshot) are discovering that once a gift has been bought from certain countries, it can only be redeemed in the same countries. If you add those
Do you like what they have showed us on the Steam store or not and why? I personally think that this is not a bad idea but the execution is horrible. I’ve expected something like top 5 Steam machines to be released, ranging from mid to high-end PCs inside, instead we get over 15 machines – really, really overpriced
