Leading Entertainment Platform Provides More Ways To Share Experiences

November 25, 2013 - Valve today announced the beta launch of Steam Reviews, adding more ways Steam users may share their experiences with others and make more informed purchase decisions.

Users considering a purchase on Steam may now browse reviews from friends and the community, leave comments on reviews, and indicate which reviews they found helpful.

Once a user has played a game or used a software title on Steam, they are able to write a review of that product and share their experience with everyone on Steam.

Steam Reviews is an evolution of the Recommendation system that has been a part of Steam since 2010. Over the past few years, Steam users have written over 7 million Recommendations of games and software to their friends. Those Recommendations have been upgraded to Steam Reviews. As such, users may now choose to make their past Recommendations visible as Reviews to everyone on Steam, if they wish, by visiting their list of Reviews and changing the settings accordingly.

Steam Reviews is currently in open beta, accessible to any Steam user.

Product Update - Valve
- Fixed -workshop command line parameter not initializing correctly (caused various issues, including not requiring particle date for items that have attached particle systems)
- Self-Made items can no longer be chiseled, socketed, or hammered.
- Gems extracted from an item that is "tradable after date" or "cannot be traded" will gain the same property.
- The 'you have new items' notification has had a few issues fixed. This message will also now expire after 60 seconds if ignored.
- The pickup items screen has been removed. New items will be shown when the user enters the armory as popups.
- Some issues with client item acknowledgement have been fixed that caused items to be "invisible" to the armory but visible in the Steam backpack.
- When an item is hammered and its gems extracted, the now gemless item and the extracted gems will all popup as newly found items.
- A bug that caused gems to get stacked on top of the item they were extracted from in the armory UI has been fixed. Items that are hidden under gems can be found by moving the gems or sorting the backpack.
- We are in the process of restoring items that had their original special quality (genuine, vintage, etc) changed by gems. At the moment the Inscribed, Autographed, and Ascended qualities will only be set on items that have no other special quality.
- The reason for a new item entering the armory is now displayed in the item drop popup, i.e.: "Customer Support Granted You:" or "You Earned a Drop:"
- After acknowledging a new item drop, the armory will flip to the page where the item has been placed.
- After closing the socketing and crafting UIs the armory will return to its original page instead of going to page 1.
- Added new armory filters: "Is Equipped" and "Number of Sockets"
- You can now preview color and effect changes in the socketing UI before committing the changes.
