Provided they're on the same wifi network, Valve's new Steam Link will allow you to stream your Steam library to your TV so you can play from the comfort of your couch. The listing for the Steam Link has disappeared from the Steam store, but you can view Google's cache of it here.  The device is priced at $50 and launches this November.

The official Steam Controller is headed for the wild!  



The Steam Controller features dual trackpads, HD haptic feedback, dual-stage triggers, back grip buttons, gyroscope and accelerometer sensors, and fully-customizable control schemes.  It has a wireless range of about fifteen feet with the option to use it wired, and up to 80 hours of play on a pair of AA batteries. 

Want to buy one?  You can pre-order a Steam Controller for $49.99 here.  A limited set of controllers will be shipped out on October 16th, with a wide release to follow.

300 lucky beta testers will soon be receiving their steam machines to begin testing. Meanwhile, the rest of us will be able to try out the Steam operating system:

SteamOS will be made available when the prototype hardware ships. It will be downloadable by individual users and commercial OEMs. (But unless you're an intrepid Linux hacker already, we're going to recommend that you wait until later in 2014 to try it out.)

Valve's got a lot of ideas on how to improve virtual reality gaming, but for now, their prototype will remain just that, even though it's said to be the best in the world. Instead of releasing their hardware, Valve is collaborating with Oculus Rift:

From the announcement:

Steam in-home streaming will allow you to play a game on one computer when the game process is actually running on another computer elsewhere in your home. Through Steam, game audio and video is captured on the remote computer and sent to the player's computer. The game input (keyboard, mouse or gamepad) is sent from the player's computer to the game process on the remote computer.


This means you'll be able to play a game that's running on your gaming pc on your terrible old laptop, so every time you get killed in a multiplayer game, you'll have to wonder if that dude just sniped you from his toilet.

Steam Tags allow you to "tag games or software in the Steam Store with terms that you think are appropriate, or apply tags that others have already suggested for that title.

Apply genres such as "Puzzle", themes like "Military", or attributes such as "Difficult". Or, come up with entirely new concepts to apply in categorizing products."

Entirely new concepts? You mean like YOLOSW4G?
