Nobody likes change. It’s a simple fact. We all enjoy being nestled in our comfort zone, safe and protected from the dangers of the world. And whenever something comes along to upset our usual patterns of behaviour, we can tend to respond more emotionally than is justified. Okay, maybe I’m being a little bit over-dramatic. Or am I?

Valve have rolled out a few modifications to their Steam page overnight, known as “The Discovery Update 2.0” and so far the differences have been very subtle. The most notable change appears on the store front page itself. Games now have a bigger space on the page with more screenshots available, which is a nice touch, and upcoming deals and promotions are also given similar treatment.

You can now see what games are trending with all your friends, and the Steam curators section now has much greater promotion than before, making it easier for players to make decisions on what games to spend their money on. All these changes are designed to make the page much more user-friendly. You can find a complete list of all the discovery update changes here.

It seems that every time a certain other popular website known as YouTube decides to make changes to their site, or announce new schemes or incentives, well, to quote The Joker – everybody loses their minds! A few months back they announced the YouTube Heroes program which wasn’t well received at all. Thankfully there doesn’t seem to be much to worry about with the new updates to Steam, so no reason to grab your pitchforks and torches just yet.
