Haven Editorial: Steam Disclosure Policy

Valve has recently launched a disclosure policy that will change things for some
gamers out there in regards to how they are viewed. The new policy states:

“If you use Steam services (e.g. the Steam Curators’ Lists or the Steam Broadcasting service) to promote or endorse a product, service or event in return for any kind of consideration from a third party (including non-monetary rewards such as free games), you must clearly indicate the source of such consideration to your audience.”

Pretty self explanatory. If you get paid for your games, you now need to tell everyone that you are getting paid. If the game is given to you by a company, you must let your fans know
that a company has given you a copy of the game.
What does this mean for us? It means we will tell you who gave us the game we are playing and it means we will also tell you why we are playing it. We are very open regarding what we do. If a developer gives us a game, we play and review it in exchange for the game itself…even if the review is negative and they get super pissed at us because of it.

Haven Editorial: Valve VR

A lot of rumor has been going around lately that Valve is stepping into the
world of Virtual reality. We’ll the rumors are confirmed to be true and that
raises the question of. What will become of the PC master race?

Gabe Newell has dominated the PC market even with newer competitors coming into
the picture such as Origin from EA, and GoG. But will Valve continue to be the trend
setter or have they finally manage to sink the ship?

A company ahead of its time in everything from the Sega Genesis, the Sega Dreamcast
they were always on top with innovations and now they are only working on Apps for phones
and tablets.

What will become of Valve do you think their innovations will lead to better PC gaming
or have they reached the point when its time to bail out?
