Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
Here’s a blast from the past for you this morning: A game that was released back in 2012 is currently sitting atop the best-seller charts, pushing last week’s brand new #1 down to #5. To continue this historical feeling, here’s a look at the latest Steam Client update, released over the weekend. Remember, to get this update, you just need to restart your client!
The update sorts out a bunch of performance issues – including a “rare crash” during login, ramps up validation performance, “improves error text” (we’re not sure if that means the error text is now more detailed, or if it just shows up on time now), and tweaks some frustratingly incorrect UI elements. There’s also a handful of updates to in-home streaming (including fixing black screen issues and bitrate problems), but the big shifts come to the Steam Controller. You’ve now got a Radial Menu Mode added for touchpads and joysticks (up to 20 menu slots!), configuration for Steam-button chording and Steam Big Picture UI, new bindable actions, and a delicious bunch of 200 new icons. If you’ve been frustrated by how your Steam Controller is working, a whole stack of bugs, crashes and issues have also been fixed – take a look at the full changelog to find out what exactly has been tweaked!
