BLAEO Curator Page

Our curator page is now live! It’s focused on interesting new releases that would otherwise go unnoticed in the flood of games that get released on Steam.
We’ll use “Recommended” for games we have first hand experience with and “Informational” for games we’re recommending based on other information (description, screenshots, reviews,…).

It’s similar to the #interesting-new-releases channel on our Discord server where we share interesting games released in the previous, current or next month, but a Steam curator page offers better management and readability of the recommendations.

We’d also like to thank Narayan for coming on board and helping out with this new BLAEO project.

Find your new favourite games here: https://store.steampowered.com/curator/11333775.

Games/DLCs added to my Steam library:

  • Prey - Mooncrash (DLC).

Played as part of the Xbox Game Pass for PC: Forza Horizon 4, Super Lucky’s Tale, The Gardens Between, Vampyr. I subscribed for another month because the games included in the pass are just too good (with the exception of Vampyr <_<). I’m actually really excited about these subscription services - I already liked Origin Access before but what Microsoft and Ubisoft are doing is even better. Looking forward to September and the free UPlay pass!

Announcement

Posting this here for everyone that’s not subscribed to the “BLAEO Announcements!” thread.

The guidelines have been updated and are now pinned in the Discussions section of the Steam group.

The new guidelines are:

1) Be nice.
2) When posting content, it should respect the privacy and rights of others.
3) Piracy, pornography, or any other material that may be inappropriate to a general audience should not be posted to the site.
4) While the site gives you a lot of freedom for writing posts, do not abuse that. Keep your posts related to gaming and try to keep your posts readable. Also, if your post has too many large screenshots, try embedding only one of them and linking the others, or reducing their size, or use HTML to come up with a creative way to alternate between them.
5) Do not spam.
6) Do not double post.
7) Do not beg users for gifts or ask for any kind of donations.
8) External links are fine as long as they do not contain referrals. If you want to promote your own website or any kind of project, you can include it in one of your regular posts only once (see guideline number 5). You can have the link displayed on your profile, but don’t try to circumvent this particular guideline by repeatedly telling people to look at your profile to check out your website/project.
9) Do not enter group-exclusive giveaways if you have not been active lately. If you do, you will be kicked out of the group.
10) Once you apply for Steam group membership do not keep asking for updates on your application.

I also did some late spring cleaning and deleted:

  • my SG account. My profile is still visible at this moment, but should disappear soonish. I stopped using SG at the end of October and in these last 8 months I never felt the need to log in again so it made sense to finally delete 7 years of my activity (joined on Oct 8 2011 & made 11120 comments) and take control of my data/personal info.
  • 60 games from my Steam library. I’ve been using this website a lot in the last few months to find games that qualify for the monthly themes. Unfortunately one of the main side effects of using that tool is realising that I own too many games that I either a) don’t even know I have, b) never want to play. The most obvious “the heck is this thing” ones are now gone!
