That’s weird. I hope they’re forking some cash over.

Seems like they're all bum chums now
So in February we flew the Drodo team over from China to chat about the future of Dota Auto Chess, and to see if they’d want to collaborate directly with us (this was also during one of the worst weeks of snow we’ve had in years, sorry about that, Drodo). We had great conversations, but we both came to the conclusion that Valve and Drodo could not work directly with each other for a variety of reasons. We ended up agreeing that we’ll each build our own stand-alone version of the game, and support each other to the fullest.

As for us, with Drodo’s blessing, a group of people here at Valve are currently working on a standalone Dota version
But I'm sure flipping great wadges of cash were involved at some point. :D

Anyone have a 25% off coupon for Void bastards in Steam they aren't going to use? I hear you get one if you have a copy of System Shock 2 in your library.

Well, that all sounds horrible. I have hundreds of games in my library and, at any one time possible hundreds of these will have developer updates, news etc. It's just clutter. Do I care if my friends ae playing a certain game?

Just fix the library view in VR. It was fine several years ago but they've really borked it recently.

Actualy, I've been trying out the GOG beta where it will show all your games over all launchers/providers. I tend not to use launchers at all, mind you, and prefer having icons on my desk for my current games I'm interested in. But it's a good attempt by GOG.

I would like a text list, with trees/folders and nothing else. Clean, compact, fast and “lite”. All I want for Christmas is ascii.

so long as I can continue to make my own lists - they can do whatever they want
Games playing : Titanfall 2 / The Messenger / Metro 2033 / GTA V (and One Finger Death Punch whenever)

I don't know why they are bothering, it's only going to annoy people. So many people want so many different things from the service now.

The revamp looks a lot like GOG Galaxy 2.0.
