Street Fighter V is coming to SteamOS, will support Steam Controller

While Valve has done a lot of work trying to push their SteamOS, it's still far from popular. And while we've seen a lot of games make their way to the platform, it's still missing a lot of big names. Today, Capcom announced that they are working closely with Valve to bring one of their biggest titles to the Linux-based OS.

Tough Break Campaign released for Team Fortress 2

Valve isn't known for making timely releases for their games. Which is probably why they like to simply release new bits without any build-up or fanfare. Their latest release comes in the form of an update for Team Fortress 2. It's dubbed The Tough Break update.

77,000 Steam accounts stolen every month, according to Valve

77,000 Steam accounts stolen every month, according to Valve

Have you ever had an online account hacked? Thankfully I can say that I haven't, at any point. Sure, I've gotten notices from sites I use telling me that they've had some sort of breach, and to change my password. However, I've never had anyone access any of my accounts. Outside of my bank account, the one that I probably worry the most about is my Steam account, and apparently for good reason.

HTC Vive release date set, Valve VR DK2 incoming

HTC has announced the release date of their Valve collaborative project, the HTC Vive virtual reality headset. This headset uses a couple of hand controllers and a room-wide playing area to differentiate itself from the competition, and exists as a team effort between HTC (for manufacturing) and Valve (for software). We had our first look at the HTC Vive and Steam VR back in March of this year - now just a little over a year later, the device will be headed to stores for the masses.

How 1,699 Linux games can give Steam OS a boost

How 1,699 Linux games can give Steam OS a boost

As of today, there are 1,699 games on Steam compatible with Linux. That's just one game short of a 1,700 of a significant milestone. But why the obsession with numbers on a platform traditionally associated more with servers and render farms and very rarely modern games? Because Valve has placed all its Steam OS eggs in one Linux basket and the adoption of the operating system in this market will ultimately seal the fate of what is perhaps the company's biggest, not to mention riskiest, business venture.

Steam Controller iFixit teardown reveals highly repairable modular design

While the teardown experts iFixit have been busy lately with a number of new Apple products, they've found time to open up and offer a peek inside the Steam Controller, Valve's new gaming accessory that offers a completely different experience with its dual trackpads. iFixit found that at first glance the internal components weren't that different from what in other standard gaming controllers these days, but they came away very pleased with how little glue was used and how easy it could be repaired.

Steam finally lets you permanently delete games from your library

Steam finally lets you permanently delete games from your library

Valve's Steam has turned into a behemoth of a digital marketplace for PC games, selling just about any title that sees release today. That means some gamers have amassed huge collections, including games they may never play again, or never really wanted in the first place, whether they were bundle extras or redeemed gifts. Unfortunately, Steam has never really made it an option to delete a game from a user's library. Until today.

Valve will reportedly do away with Steam’s Daily and Flash sales

Valve will reportedly do away with Steam’s Daily and Flash sales

Steam Sales have historically been big deals. I don't buy many games these days, mostly because I've filled up on them in previous years. I'd wake up early to see what was on sale, and continue to check back throughout the day, as some of those would change throughout the day. But for the upcoming Autumn and Winter sales, that might be changing.

SteamOS suffers massive performance hits over Windows 10

SteamOS suffers massive performance hits over Windows 10

You have to admit that Valve is a pretty interesting company when it comes to the world of gaming. They could have easily just been another great game developer with a strange fascination with hats. But instead, over the last decade, they have completely changed the way we play games on a PC. This started with their release of the Steam client, and more recently by developing an entire OS just for playing games. But how well do games perform on their SteamOS?

Steam Controller configured to allow disabled gamer play Skyrim with one hand

Steam Controller configured to allow disabled gamer play Skyrim with one hand

The Steam Controller, as well as the new Xbox One Elite controller from Microsoft, are truly revolutionary for disabled gamers in that they allow complete button re-mapping and customization, letting those who don't have full use of their hands reach and use the controls necessary to play a game. The Steam Controller especially allows levels of customization never seen before, and one user demonstrates this by creating a layout for playing the hit game Skyrim with one hand, fulfilling a request from another disabled player.

Steam Item Stores revisits the idea of paid mods on Steam

Steam Item Stores revisits the idea of paid mods on Steam

Remember earlier this year when Valve and Bethesda teamed up to allow paid mods for Skyrim via Steam? It's safe to say that the effort blew up in their faces, as users lashed out at both companies. Eventually the paid mod store was pulled down, and considered to be a failure. Well, Valve has decided to re-introduce the idea of putting community-created content up for sale, but they're taking a different approach this time.
