I haven 't seen the video yet, but the fallback mode WILL be available for the PS4 controller. You will be able to use it in legacy mode, emulate mouse and keyboard and xinput device stuff, even pop open radial menus, all that sort of thing. Everything the regular Steam ...

If Valve is gonna stick to their guns with the new rating system, the least they can do is improve the sorting. I would recommend removing the arbitrary significance buckets @ exactly 50 very and 500 overwhelmingly reviews. r n r nA better approach is the Wilson score method, demonstrated ...

They have a mechanism, it 's called G2A shield, and they have the gall to CHARGE for the service. They also use well documented dark patterns to auto sign you up for it, and have a laborious 16-step unsubscribe process.

I suppose after a few days we 'll have some estimates from SteamSpy. Just going off of concurrent player counts using SteamCharts.com, it looked like it had significantly lower player count stats than the games immediately above below it in the sales charts, but I 'm not sure how reliable ...
