You can set your Game details to private in your profile settings to hide your in-game status. Though all your games, achievements and playtime will also be hidden then.

Well extraction is where you go in, do stuff and attempt to leave. Horror means some form of scary, combine the two.

Just kidding, love you Liam.

This time-limited licensing is such bullshit. Basically building a self-destruct timer into the product.

Well, this is a clear-cut case of copyright infringement. Valve just did what any sane company would have done.

Quoting: GuestLooks fake. RTX on/off doesn't have anything to do with it (or little). They redid the textures significantly. Now if it showed dynamic lighting with the old lighting, then we'd be talking.
Even the models look different. This is more like a complete remaster, which does look nice, but nothing that cannot be done without ray tracing.

Steam Deck - SteamOS 3.5.13 Preview improves WiFi, brings LED brightness controls

Quoting: tpauIt would be cool if third party platforms could hook deep in steam OS and show their shop and game library directly instead of only adding shortcuts.
Having them es external apps feels a bit clunky, be it ea, ubi, bnet, Lutris, emudeck or heroic.
I too wish they added proper desktop (e.g. multi-window) application support in gaming mode.

However adding explicit support for other shops would be undermining their own shop, and would be a maintenance and support nightmare. Just think how often things like the EA app breaks on Steam games, because EA does not give a crap. Also could invite all sorts of legal issues.
