Talk about the fallen god Gaben and how Steam is slowly getting worse.

Steam still keeps popping up the short "Steam is updating" message, even after I've updated for realz.

Twitch announced they will be coming out with their own game directory as a means to compete with Steam. Viewers will be able to buy the game that the streamer is playing and said aforementioned streamer will get a cut of the money, Wonder how much of the market share they can wrestle away from Valve.

Well, Amazon is good at conveniently selling shit to people. It might actually work.

I got used to every major publisher nowdays having their own client. Yes, it's fucking annoying, but there is nothing you can do about it - especially since it's still more comfortable than installing each game separately. If anything, at least Ubisoft will give me 20% discount on a new game if I buy it on uplay instead of steam (that's really a thing).

As for steam as a client, I haven't purchased anything based on it's suggestion in a while. Since I follow gaming news quite a lot, I usually know what to get, but based on it's homepage now, it's not that terrible. We've had the discussion about categories being terrible, which is possible, but at least they're attempting to do some sort of better recommendation system. Which isn't much...

Their presentation of new games is still awful. It's like they are stuck in ages of Internet explorer 6, when using tabs was a novel concept. Why do I have to click on each game to see what is it about, you can't simply show it to me, or at the very least, without leaving the front page?

Steam is suggesting every single fucking Free to play title to me because I play Warframe, instead of suggesting action games or something.

Good thing I only visit the shop to buy shit I actually intend to buy. I've never bothered with any recommendation.

And yes, the lack of tabs triggers me something fierce. At least allow for multiple instances / separate windows if tabs are so out of the question.
