Sharing Steam games coming soon?

With all of the news about DRM and sharing your games everywhere with Microsoft’s screw up, Sony’s digs, and Microsoft’s 180, it seems like Steam decided to (possibly) try something new!

In the source code of the new beta version of Steam, there is something called “Shared game library,” while it’s not very clear as to what that is, it suggests you’ll be able to let your friends play games when you’re not playing them, and you won’t have access to them when they are playing. With most new Steam features though, there’ll probably only be a few titles in the beginning that’ll take advantage of this feature.

Even though this is exciting news for PC gamers, we don’t want you to get your hopes up. This is a beta version of the software and can be removed or be something totally different in the end. We’ll keep you updated!

Hardcore Tactical Shooter - Special post

Game Designer by the name of Christian Allen has started a project to make a Hardcore Tactical Shooter.

He has worked on game titles such as Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter and Halo Reach.

Were you fan of the old Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon games? even the SWAT game series? Where there was more planning before the action took place. Remember feeling your heart pound in your chest when leading your squad through a house, checking every corner in case an enemy was there.

Then this is your chance to relive those days!

And don’t forget to spread the word!
