Why didn’t I think of that?

England continues to be the epicentre of writing on Steam with the new Steam Report blog, launched last month by John Griffin and Andy Griffiths. There’s a double-act joke in there somewhere.

The site is much more active than TSR (an acronym I can’t use any more), both because the pair elect to post the contents of the official Steam news feed as well as their own content, and because, well, they have content. The majority is coverage of the games that happen to be on Steam, but there’s a growing Editorials category too.

Best of luck, lads!

    Their editorials aren’t nearly as good as the ones on here, though.

    Mostly, you’ve just suffered from a lack of anything really interesting happening for a while! Community was released something like 8 months ago, and Steamworks is interesting, but only if/when a) it gets used on a large scale, b) it becomes more publically available.

    Things just aren’t changing as fast as they used to.

    Hopefully the huge update that’ll add P2P and built-in mod distribution support will appear soon and blow us all away!

    Hi Andy – Andy from Steam Report here!
    You’re right, our editorials aren’t anywhere near as good as what is here, as we don’t really have that many yet! At the moment we’re still ironing out the kinks in the code and getting things off the ground, but we do have some really interesting editorials lined up!
    We’re nearly there, so just bear with us!

    Oh, and Steam Review, many thanks for the mention!

    Personally, I don’t like the filler such as the reports on game updates. The Steam news thread is already in my reader…
