Steam Community to deploy its own “Game Guides” section, users to create and upload

"When being shot at, try to avoid bullets." THANKS DUKE NUKEM

We’ve all been frustrated in games before, but rather than hitting up Google, Valve would like us to start bringing up the Steam overlay and taking a browse through their new Game Guides section.

Members of the Steam Community Beta Group are the first ones to have access to this new Game Guides section, and will be able to create guides using text as well as screenshots that they’ve uploaded to their Steam cloud. YouTube videos can also be inserted.

“You’ve probably got some favorite games that you play a lot and know pretty well,” writes Valve. “Or maybe you’ve mastered playing as a certain class or character in Team Fortress 2 or Call of Duty. Or maybe you’re just really good at finding all the hidden secrets in the latest Elder Scrolls game. How do you put that knowledge to use and help fellow gamers? Create a game guide on Steam!”

So essentially the walkthroughs on gamefaqs? Interesting, interesting.

 

I just hope I can lock myself out of it !!

 

It will be interesting considering how popular GameFAQs is. At least I think it is as when ever I have a problem with a game or want to find out if there is a mod or fix for something, appropriate forum threads always come up high in the search result list.

Good luck to them…

 

Prima Guides: “$39.95 please!”

Steam: “Get off my grass…”
