Steam Remote Play Together makes it easier to game with anyone (and there’s a sale too)

Perhaps spurred by the pandemic keeping everyone at home, Steam has spent the last several months building out its Remote Play Together service. At first, it started as a way to play select local co-op games online with Steam friends. Then, earlier this month, it expanded again, this time allowing users to invite someone who doesn't even have a Steam account to play games with them.

Valheim update brings a long list of changes big and small

Valheim update brings a long list of changes big and small

Viking survival game Valheim received a new patch this morning, and it's arriving with quite an extensive list of changes. One of these changes seemingly fixes an exploit that allowed players to passively and infinitely farm drops from Greydwarves, so if you've been surrounding Greydwarf spawners with fires and letting those do the work for you, it sounds like you're going to need to find a different way to farm your resin and wood.

Steam Link app is finally available on the Mac App Store

Steam Link app is finally available on the Mac App Store

Apple is both famous and infamous for its stringent quality control over its app stores but some developers, not just Epic Games, have always criticized its sometimes incomprehensible policies that are applied inconsistently depending on the app. Valve has learned that the hard way years ago when it first launched the Steam Link app for iOS. While that has been resolved, it took two more years before the macOS version of the app finally makes its way to Apple's desktop platform.

Valheim devs tease Hearth and Home update as game hits another huge milestone

It's been about six weeks since Valheim first released in early access on Steam, and what a month-and-a-half it's been.

Epic Games Store gets more social with a party system

Gaming is no longer a solitary activity, even if you are playing a single-player offline game. Gamers have various ways to keep in touch with like-minded friends, primarily through voice or text group chats. While there are dedicated platforms like Discord for that, Epic Games wants to save its users from having to do extra work for that. That's why it will soon be introducing a party system in the Epic Games Store to let friends and players gather around their favorite titles or matches.

ALIENS: Fireteam takes place after Alien 3, before Resurrection… but how?

Before you view this trailer, keep an open mind and check the "alpha" tag below. This game is still relatively early in development, and will almost certainly look better by the time it's ready for release. That said, it's odd that it's set for "Summer 2021" but the gameplay trailer release today is still "alpha" in nature. Have you ever experienced such a combination of elements before?

Steam Remote Play Together won’t require a Steam account for one invite

Gaming can be an intensely social activity, despite stereotypes, but most of the interactions among gamers happen online these days. There are video games that are meant to be played together with a small band of friends, often over a local network. COVID-19 restrictions have made it harder to get together for local multiplayer games and some friends might not even live in the same country or continent. Valve made the Steam Remote Play Together feature exactly for that purpose and soon it won't even require a Steam account to use, at least for some of the players.

Steam is stepping up its controller support game for developers

Steam is stepping up its controller support game for developers

Once upon a time, Steam envisioned homes with a Steam Machine gaming box in their living rooms. The idea of playing PC games on such a large screen and on the comfort of your couch would have gone well if not for the fact that most PC games are designed with keyboard and mouse in mind. That may no longer be true today, with a variety of games across genres advertising support for game controllers. With Steam's latest dashboard feature, the PC gaming market's biggest distributor is telling developers to start caring about controller support.
