How likely are you to play a game if it's not released on Steam? That's the subject of our midweek PCG Q&A.

There is now a page on Steam with a simple job: to tell you how much money you’ve spent on Steam since creating your account. The External Funds page is part of the Steam Support site, so you’ll need to log in to see it. Or, go to Support > My Account > Data Related to Your Steam Account > External Funds Used. It categories your spending under three main stats: total spend, old spend, and PW spend. Total spend is a tally of all the money you spent on Steam, whether that’s buying games for yourself, gifting them to others, or buying anything off the Steam Market. This does not take into account games purchased outside of Steam that you redeemed on Steam, only things you actually paid Valve for. The total spend takes into account money taken directly out of your card, as well as Steam Wallet funds which you spent on the platform. Old spend only shows the money spent up before April 17, 2015. You may remember that Valve instated a policy around that time that … [Read more...] about Steam now lets you see how much money you spent on the store and the market
SCIENTISTS believe your name can reveal how you are judged, your performance at work and even how old you are. New York professor Leonard Newman from Syracuse University claims people with "timeless" names are not stereotyped. He asked 500 students to rate 400 popular male and female names from the last 70 years based on how competent they were likely to be, New Scientist reported. Questions included: "Imagine that you are about to meet Samantha. How competent/ warm/ old do you think she is when you see her name?" The scientists then used the results to assess which names were associated with competency, warmth and a certain age group. Mr Newman reported a clear gender effect as female names tended to be associated with low competency. He said: "If you give your child a fashionable name for the time, it might date them. "The only way around it is to choose a name that never seems to go out of style like David or Michael." Names such as Betty and Bruce were consistently associated with … [Read more...] about What your name says about you revealed – including how people judge you, your work and even your age

Professional Jason players in Friday the 13th: The Game are a special breed of diabolical tricksters. Taking gleeful advantage of the game’s proximity-based voice chat, in which you can only hear and talk to other players when they’re in plausible range of your character, these in-game killers exploit the power of sound to terrifying effect. Some will inflict dischorantly unsettling music through their microphone, like the time I once found myself hunted by a Jason singing along to the theme tune to Friends. You haven’t experienced true fear until you’ve witnessed a six-foot-four psychopath screaming “I’ll be there for youuuu” as he breaks down the door with a meat cleaver. Others will use proximity chat as an opportunity to commit to the part, either by putting on their creepiest voice (this usually amounts to a bad Pennywise impression) or by making no noise at all and just breathing heavily down the mic instead, releasing the odd … [Read more...] about Friday the 13th, Sea of Thieves, and how proximity chat continues to be online gaming’s most exciting evolution in years
