Valve channels Nintendo with 3x new games and hardware

Steam Greenlight shutting down to make way for Steam Direct

It would appear that the days of Steam Greenlight are numbered. Many PC gamers who have used Steam for the past few years will be familiar with Greenlight, which allows Steam users to vote on independent games that are looking to get a listing on Steam's storefront. Greenlight has been around since 2012, but Valve announced today that it will be shutting down this spring.

Mobius Final Fantasy now on Steam, FF VII Remake event begins

PC gamers who have dreaded the rise of mobile gaming as a writing on the wall need not be too weary. At least not this week. For one, the originally mobile game Fallout Shelter has just landed on Windows 10 with Play Anywhere perks. For another, Mobius Final Fantasy, one of the very, very few new original Final Fantasy games made specifically for mobile devices, has not also just arrived on Steam. And to commemorate the occasion, not to mention the now 10 million players, Square Enix is also kicking off the Final Fantasy VII Remake collaboration event that brings Cloud and a few other FF7 references to the game.

EU probes Valve, game publishers over Steam region blocking

EU probes Valve, game publishers over Steam region blocking

Digital copies are games are quite convenient. Without the need for physical access, they are easier to distribute and can reach as many as possible. In theory, of course. In practice, however, games don’t always reach all countries, even countries that belong to the same region. That situation has prompted the European Commission, the European Union’s legislative body, to take a closer look into the business of “geo-blocking” games practiced by Steam owner Valve and five game publishers to see if this almost ordinary way of doing things is, in fact, an anti-competitive practice.

Mobius Final Fantasy coming to Steam with FF VII Remake crossover

Square Enix has tried to bring original Final Fantasy titles to mobile, but none has made it prouder than Mobius Final Fantasy. Raking in downloads and mostly (though not completely) positive remarks, the game brings a smidgen of some modern (read: 3D) FF elements in handheld servings. Now it wants to share that joy with PC gamers as it brings Mobius Final Fantasy to Steam in less than two weeks. And to further sweeten the pot, it is making a “collaboration” with the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Xbox controllers now supported by Steam Controller Configurator

Xbox controllers now supported by Steam Controller Configurator

Valve's own Steam Controller may be one of the most interesting hardware peripherals for PC gaming, but it comes with a steep learning curve. The trade-off to this, however, is that it's deeply customizable, thanks to its software that allows any game's controls to be reassigned and mapped to buttons of a user's preference. A few months ago, Valve began opening up this software and making it compatible with the PS4's DualShock 4 pad, but now it's doing the same for Xbox controllers.
