Massive New Steam Update – Follow me for fun times!

I swear to all that is gaming that I have a massive, huge, bigish post on my experiences with the DK2, and what games work the best coming… but in the mean time Steam has just released it’s huge “Discovery” update.

There’s a lot to like with the update, and it goes some way towards what I had wished Steam had done a long time ago – make it a social network for gamers.

In lieu of that, I have been using Google+, but ultimately it’s not the best fit.

Unfortunately, the update doesn’t quite do everything I want (such as being able to tag people as well as games) but it does have nice improvements to your news feed. An area I’m sure most people neglected, but maybe now will give another look.

Most significantly for me, is you can now follow “curators” who can recommend games to you. In fact, your store page now recommends games to you based on a magic algorithm, part of which is which curators you follow.

So my advice: Give me a follow! I’m not even trying to pad my numbers, I just like giving people the low down on the best games, and now you can get it straight to your Steam box.
