Most controllers have Bluetooth these days, pretty easy especially on Android.

Apple have blocked the Steam Link app on iOS due to 'business conflicts'...

If you can shoot someone in the face and see their brains I dont really see why a weird dating sim sexy game should be excluded. They do have to watch that shit though because when it gets into cartoon territory and japan theres some horrendous pedo line shit. Just because you say the flat chested 4 and a half foot tall girl with the high pitched voice is 18 doesnt make it ok! :(

It should be allowed but policed. They should also do better at age gating not only that but everything.

Exactly. But this statement is them saying "We can't be bothered to moderate anything, so we'll go completely hands off"

Huge budget video games get to sit next to some wee edge-lord's KKK simulator made from free Unreal Engine tutorial assets. That's... certainly a business model.

utter idiots

They are determined to fuck up the goodwill and consumer love they have built over 15 years or so. Their fault. They are rolling in money and cannot be bothered to even curate their own platform from utter dross.

Valve did the most sensible thing there. If it's not legal then pull it, otherwise hand off approach is best approach. As shit games don't get any coverage unless you're watching the usual suspects that do it for videos.

I am sick of the asset flippers on steam as anyone else but I just ignore it. They hardly ever appear for me on Steam beside AAA games either. So I take it there recommendations in steam are working fine for me :)

Top comment on eurogamer article is spot on about it all.


I'll add to his comment and say if people hadn't complained to Valve to get rid of Greenlight you would never had open the floodgates to the amount of games being released on Steam daily. Take the time to look and sort out your recommendations and you will skip the majority of games you hate or feel offended by. I hardly see the asset flippers for example.
