FYI, you can apparently also use Steam Link anywhere now, meaning not just over LAN. You can not stream games to your phone or whatever from your PC where ever you are if you have a good enough internet connection.

What this does is it Streams your game (only shared screen multiplayer games) to your friend so they can play with you. For them it's like they are playing on Stadia or something, they are basically streaming the game from your PC. They just show up as a second local controller being connected. I've tried this with two friends in two games so far and it's worked great. Really cool feature to have.

|skupples||^^ many many games would be vastly improved if they approached mp like borderlands, or even half as much.|

Used to be called Hamachi decade+ ago and used among other free VPNs for playing dangerous waters games in multiplayer.
Some games still do support direct IP connection to a server but it's getting more rare as developers prefer to have their own single point of attack called master server without which their whole game dies instantly. The master server is used for discovering servers run by anyone or in some cases by the developer only.
An old school LAN doesn't need to be LAN if one has public IP server.
Who is this feature for with Steam...??? Beside the split screen gaming streaming mode? What Steam games actually benefit from having a VPN = one lacks public IP to run their server?
Used to be kali.
Edit: well damn, still is. Lol

this didnt need to happen, and most games let you co-op already. LOL, wahtever I guess...
Quite a few smaller games lately have been releasing without remote co-op. This closes that gap.

|AmericanLoco||Guys, this isn't to play local (as in LAN) multiplayer games over the internet. It's to play local as in "split-screen console style" multiplayer games over the internet.|

you know why they don't report bridge jumpers from the Golden Gate? It increases the # of jumps.
The same philosophy applies for negativity and ridiculousness. It's less likely to happen and repeat itself if its ignored.
