Steam Community Spotlight: SteamDB

For this week’s Community Spotlight we wanted to feature a project known as “Steam Database” or “SteamDB” for short.

Essentially, SteamDB is an online tool which catalogues information about games and applications on the Steam Store.

All Things Lambda – The new LambdaGeneration Podcast!

Other All Things Lambda – The new LambdaGeneration Podcast!

For a long time, we had this idea of making a little something like a podcast. Now, after months of throwing ideas around, it’s finally here! This is the first episode of “All Things Lambda”!

In the first episode, Ooiman, Jeff and Dhel talk about the SteamBoy handheld, the mysterious Team Fortress 2 Bread items, and Dota 2′s ‘The International’. But of course, we couldn’t forget about the biggest gaming event of June: E3! We share our opinions about the conferences and go over a list of games announced!

This episode turned out to be longer than anticipated, too! Future episodes will be about 40 minutes long.

We hope you enjoy out first try at producing a podcast, and please do leave us feedback!

If anyone is still interested, we are still looking for contributors to cover the following specific topics:

  • Garry’s Mod - Modding news, playthoughs, gamemode/map reviews, comics! etc.
  • Portal Series - Modding news, mod/map reviews, community creativity eg.fan-films, artwork etc.
