I apologize for the delay in this new post. I’ve been away in China for the past two weeks. I’ve been thinking about making a new review template on all my library games. But a few distractions here and there are keeping me from getting right to it. I’m still learning about all the cool features on Steam which makes it unique from other PC gaming platforms.
I do admit there are some features on Steam that I’ve overlooked before since I never had a reason to really use them. Steam trading cards are exchanged as virtual tokens for DLC rewards instead of the traditional Magic: The Gathering and Yu-Gi-Oh! cards where kids battled each other’s deck of monsters.
Steam encourages their gamers to collect cards from these so-called “participating games” found under the Steam features checklist besides Steam Controller Support or Steam achievements.
Did you know that when you buy a game on Steam, you have the option of sending it as a gift to people on your friends’ list? Steam has a great approach to tracking your gifts in case they didn’t get sent correctly. Under “Manage gifts and guest passes” is a tab labeled Pending Gifts so you know it’s on the way to your PC.
It’s really easy, all you have to do is select a game, add it to your cart, choose to “purchase as a gift”, and later, decide if you want to send your gift via email or to their Steam account. Steam also lets you write a friendly message to show you care, possibly toss in some classic trolling for shits and giggles.
