    Some things that they could do is make the Categories Drag&Droppable instead of Alphabetical with "Favorites" always on Top. They already have a Drag&Drop feature implemented where you can drag games from the right into a Collection on the left (or to remove them from it) and it seems to work fine, but the Collections themselves seem to be fixed.

    Also a "Sort By" Steam reviews would be more useful than "Metacritic Score", because who honestly cares about the "Metacritic Score"?

    If Valve doesn't come up with some way to allow you to hide the "recent news" and "recently played" bands from the library home view, I'm switching to the GOG Galaxy 2.0 client. :argh:

    Great. The competition from Epic Games Store made Valve finally update Steam and make it look just as shit.

    Deep Dive is a bit buggy for me, the 'refresh' doesn't work properly. You have to go to the title before the one you selected, then select that title again for refresh to work. This only happens after you've selected a title past that title.
    Probably won't make much sense until you've used the tool.

    Found a few new games to buy though.

    Curators have been broken for me for quite some time now. I can add new Curators, but I can't search or browse for them, and if I try to put a Curator on Ignore I get a "you can't ignore a curator you already follow"-error.

    Is Valve the only company that updates games 20 years after release? I wonder if they fixed the bug where a Combine vehicle's tire is clipping through the ground.

    This could be an advantage when Valve launches its own streaming service.

    What do you mean? That's their streaming service. It's free!

    Serious Sam devs are still updating even the first SS once in a long while.

    There was also some strategy game dev, but I forgot who.

    I wish more devs would. I'd be much more likely to buy a product if I had a good indication that it may still be getting bugfixes years later.

    I'm sure you'd find some other excuse then.

    I already buy any game that's tagged with cats, so I doubt it.
