• Steam's New Community Feature Update

    Discussion in 'News' started by Hectic Glenn, Jun 20, 2007.

    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. Tell us more Gabe...
    Steam has been continually updated since release, however this is the largest extension it's ever seen.This update will be free of charge, with the new community features accessible via the Steam desktop client and via the web.

    Works with all Steam games, not just Valve titles? Extreme win!
  2. Dekstar
    Hmm... New breed of Emo gamers? Steamo?
  3. AHA-Lambda
    Sounds like a great idea! Although all I'll have to do is copy my myspace.
  4. -Psy-
    So basically it's Xbox Live but for Steam and for free?

    AWESOMENESS!
  5. Evo
    Booo-yeah!
  6. Xendance
    This is somewhat revolutionary.

    message to xbox live users

    :p

    Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

    Anyway sounds joyious all that is needed now is hl2 ep2/tf2/portal/l4d to be release early.

    Absolutely epic. Does XBlive have anything over this new system, or are Valve really offering the equivalent service?
  9. CyberPitz
    The fact Steam is doing for free what XBL is charging for...

    Instant win.
  10. -Psy-
    I don't think so. :) @ jondy
  11. Sierra Oscar
    Great news, Im eagerly awaiting it:)
  12. Stigmata
    Yeah, it looks like Xbox Live on the PC for free, and not exclusively on Vista. Looks like I might not be renewing my Gold membership in November :p

    I've been excited for this release for some time. I just really hope, jokes aside, that Valve doesn't turn Steam Community into some ugly slow-loading, wallpaper-plastered MySpace clone.

    I am excited for the Group chat, though. That looks pretty cool.
  14. AHA-Lambda
    We should have some sort of hl2.net group thing on this :D
  15. -Psy-
    Great idea! :D

    I thought I would like to share my e-mail that I got from Mr. Newell himself last night! :cheese:
    Say goodbye to paying for XBL and that disconnecting xfire client! :E
  17. Stigmata
    Oh holy ****ing awesome YES.
  18. hool10
    Oh yeah I realized after I sent the e-mail that one of the ShadowLAN pics had Gabe's PowerPoint show in the back and it said that it supports non-Steam games. Haus member took down the pics because he's fixing them he said.
  19. Qonfused
    This is awesome.
  20. Insano
    This made me come. Twice.

    In an exhaust pipe.
  21. ailevation
    Wow, this is ownage at it's finest.
  22. nutcrackr
    guess I should get some more steam friends to make this worthwhile
  23. Praetorius
    About four years too late.
  24. eAi
    My steam friends list is unfortunately full of people I've never heard of, because I gave out my steam username when Friends was being beta tested... Time to start deleting I think ;)
  25. bigburpco
    Holy fucking awesome.
  26. Link
    Total, complete, utter epic win.
  27. Operational
    Awesomeness.
    And yes we need a HL2.net section for it, this is going to be soo beneficial to the community.
  28. Insano
    You kidding?

    Steam wasn't ready for a big patch like this. Four years ago it was still too buggy.
  29. bigburpco
    I hope this kicks Games for Windows out of the haus.

    ... boycott vista.
  30. Mr-Fusion
    I'm trying to think of someone or some group to abuse or belittle but i just can't.

    Oh **** it.

    YOU SUCK GEORGE LUCAS
  31. Sloth
    We'll have to poke Dan Turk to get a Steam icon next to MSN etc on profiles...

    This will be awesome!
  32. Robbo
    God I hope they do it well, other wise it could be a complete disaster.
  33. Insano
    Indeed. It's a great concept, but I just hope there won't be too much bugs.
  34. bigburpco
  35. -Psy-
    This is going to be awesome.
  36. Asuka
    Great, im going to try and be at a lan when this gets released.
  37. Dekstar
    Haha support for windows 98 and ME ends on my birthday \o/
