Valve Releases Steam Mobile App

  Available for both Apple and Android phones, gamers can now access Steam on the go. Valve boasts that the mobile app allows users to chat with friends from their Steam friends list, and more importantly, shop the Steam store. This application has my attention for two reasons. The first being that I believe Valve may be making a shift into the mobile market, with this app. Think about it, what a perfect way for Vavle to reach out to […]

Valve Can’t Count to 3

I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Good Things: Valve has made a ton of high-quality games that have all been successful in their own ways. The lack of a continuous franchise keeps things fresh and new, while keeping their games from turning into Madden Warfare 2011. [kinda] Bad Thing: No end in sight could lead to loss of interest. Valve started the tale of Gordon Freeman in 1998. They continued it in 2004, […]
