Yup, you ‘eard. Great news for all us mouse-jockeys who love us some cheap cloud-based gameage. Unlike the 3rd party apps we’ve seen so far, Steam Mobile will now allow users to chat to their Steam pals and also hit the shop. What else are you going to do on the bus other than conceal your untimely unprovoked erection?
Steam Mobile is currently in closed beta, but you can beg pathetically to join the beta from within the app like the wee-stained wierd kid on the doorstep of an epic party trying to get in. Yeah, don’t worry, we’ve all been there.
We <3 Valve. And apparently they <3 us too! With a bit of luck you’ll all remember my little GLaDOS hair accessory from last week, but what you may have missed is that I emailed a Mr Gabe Newell about it too. Now I wasn’t really expecting a reply from Valve’s big fella, but not only did he email me back (saying little GLaDOS was “pretty awesome”), he forwarded my email on to a plethora of Valve employees (well like 6 anyway), which actually included some the original Portal creators. Eeeeep! Continue reading →
Suddenly appearing behind you, today’s scary sale has 52 limbs, each holding a game.
The good old Steam holiday sale is back. This Halloween themed one contains many creepy-themed games, but a couple are just thrown in for fun. I’ve also discovered that not all games listed, are the best price. I’ve found better deals elsewhere (some on steam even).

The new DLC for Portal 2 was released today for free!
A quick catchup for those of you who haven’t played a Portal game; and if that includes you, I’d highly recommend playing the demo to Portal 1 which can be found on Steam. Put simply this game combines logical puzzle solving, Escher-esque physics and traditional FPS mechanics. The puzzles involve getting from point A to point B with an obstacle or twelve inbetween. The Portals create a fun and noggin-bending mechanism for getting around the levels. Well worth a look if you’ve not played it before.
If it wasn’t enough that the kind folks at Valve were giving away the Portal 2: Peer Review DLC today, they have knocked down the price of the game to £9.99. So now even the hardest of cheapskates can now have their minds’ bent in odd ways. Go get it from the Steam Store.
