SteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.  

Steam Greenlight is officially retired. Today, Valve shut down the portion of their service that allowed users to upvote prospective Steam games. It will be replaced with a more straightforward game submission process called Steam Direct on June 13. Valve is hoping a $100 fee, upgrades to their algorithm, and changes to trading cards will result in less “fake games.”
