Valve Details Upcoming Steam Curator Update

Valve announced today it will be updating Steam’s Curator system with some major improvements later this fall.

The Curator system works by allowing people to select specific Curator accounts that they want to follow. These Curators' recommendations and reviews will then show up on on the follower's home page and activity log, narrowing down the sea of titles that they may be interested in. Part of the update later this fall will have your Curators' recommendations show up on other parts of the Steam Store as well. 

Curators will also soon be able to embed videos in their reviews, create lists of reviews they’ve written (i.e. “Good Halloween Games” or “Top 10 RPGs”), have greater customization of their home page, and have access to more graphs showing how their reviews have impacted their followers' shopping decisions.

New Justice League Trailer Amps Up The Action

DC's fast-approaching super hero team-up film goes heavy on the action in its newest trailer.

Released earlier today, the trailer offers clips of the team and their allies in action against Steppenwolf and his forces. The recent last-minute edits to the film are apparent as well, with light-hearted banter between the five core members scattered throughout and Cyborg displaying a bit more emotion than in earlier trailers. It should be noted, however, that Superman doesn't make a clear appearance this time around.

Evo 2018 Gets Dates And A New Trailer

The Evolution Championship Series, popularly known as Evo, just got a definitive date and location for its 2018 tournament in a new announcement trailer via Shoryuken. The best and brightest of the fighting game competitive circuit will face off on August 3-5 of next year at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Of course, all the action will also stream live on Twitch, so just in case you can't afford the ticket price, Evo's got you covered.

The announcement trailer shows off some "get hyped" moments from Evo 2017, as well as footage from games that have been featured in tournaments past – including a short clip from the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ, which was showcased in a side tournament at Evo 2017. The official official list of featured games hasn't been released yet, but based on Bandai Namco's hard push at Evo this year, expect to see FighterZ in some form at Evo 2018. 

Just in case you can't wait until August to watch fists fly and audiences cry, you can also check out Japan's first Evo tournament early next year. Evo Japan throws down in Tokyo from January 26-28.

Update: Bungie Reverses Some Destiny 2 PC Bans, Says They Were Made In Error

Update: Bungie has added a short update note to yesterday's post clarifying its banning procedure, acknowledging that some players were mistakenly banned.:

Update: As part of our ban review process, we have identified a group of players who were banned in error. Those players have been unbanned. The bans were not related to the third-party applications listed above. We will continue to review the process we use to ensure a fun and fair game.

There's no word on how many were in the group of erroneously banned players, but Bungie remains adamant that they weren't banned for the third-party overlays that PC gamers frequently use.
