Major STEAM update coming this summer

post #1 of 55

Quote:
Beginning in July, Steam users can set up their own personal Steam pages and profiles, create and join groups, schedule games with friends, review who they've played with, see how well everyone played, chat with groups, chat via voice, and more. These new community services and features can be used with all Steam games, which include new releases and classic titles from leading publishers and independent developers.

I think this is going to be kick ass!

I'd much rather see progress for HL2 and source engine games. Maybe some major CS:S updates, etc.?

Perhaps a VAC3 would be nice, because VAC2 doesn't stop any cheats.

Let's just say they're trying to copy Xfire, but in such way that it's only compatible with their own game, plus it's supposed to use 200 MBs when idle.

im looking forward to it ...

probably going to be good for clans.
and yeah it will be like Xfire, but... probably somewhat better.


Xfire never works ingame for me anyway.
