Goodbye, Roundups!

News & Rumors Other
Goodbye, Roundups!

They had a good run. But after over one year in service, we are dropping News Roundups. Pretty much permanently. They may or may not return some day, perhaps in a completely different form, but this is the end of the Roundups, as we know them. At the end of the day, they took up valuable time that could be used working on other articles, they needlessly segregated each news week, and they restricted us to a certain time table. As GLaDOS said, “You just have to look at things objectively, see what you don’t need anymore, and trim out the fat”. We thank you for reading them, and we’re really glad if you enjoyed them.

So… yeah. That’s about it. Bless all forms of intelligence.


  1. I will miss the bonus snippets.

  2. I agree with ZPenn! I never tended to read them.

  3. This is actually good. I check this site every day, and I don’t like seeing a new story, only to realize it is just a roundup of… stories I already read. I like your site, but the roundups do seem unnecessary. Glad for the change, also, keep up the good work of keeping us informed on all things Valve!

    Maybe add a button on the side that shows the recent news in a simplified way. All I know is that I won’t miss them…


  6. Useful, sure, but time consuming nonetheless. Hopefully this will be incentive for people to explore the site a bit more.

  7. You’re calling me fat I just know it D:
