Steamworks Player Hubs

Bring your Steam account to life in the virtual world.  Player hubs are like game hubs, but instead of being all about a specific game, they are all about a specific Steam player.

playerhubsPlayer & Game Hubs come together in an exciting new Anarchy Arcade feature that basically lets you create a media-rich, safe, and automatic 3D public hangout that you and your friends can enjoy. Stay tuned for more on this amazing new feature!

Mentioned on the RetroGaming RoundUp #47

Can’t get enough retro games? I hope so, because the RetroGaming RoundUp is an 8 hour internet radio show that covers topics ranging from gaming conventions to top 10 lists.  Listening to the entire show in 1 sitting is not recommended. Source Media Arcade is listed on the show’s itinerary, but I haven’t heard the part where they mention it yet. If you find where they talk about it, let me know! Either way, its worth a listen if you love retro games.

Discover NEW Movies & Games w/ SM Arcade

By now you’ve all gotten the idea that you can discover new media by joining other people’s arcade servers. Well, now there’s a whole new way to discover new media without even playing multiplayer.

Today’s video showcases 2 all-new features to hit SM Arcade in the past few days. First is the DISCOVER BUTTON which will aid you in placing media items that you don’t even own yet! What’s the advantage to that? The 2nd feature showcased in the video are the SEARCH PROVIDERS which link you directly to matching media on your favorite sites! After you buy/download the item, all that’s left is to plug it into SM Arcade and start checking out the all new entertainment you discovered in the 3D world of Source Media Arcade. Your all-in-one PC media center!

Built-in web scraper for game info

NEW DEMONSTRATION VIDEO AVAILABLE:

Today I was able to work in a fully functioning web-scraper that can grab descriptions and artwork images for a massive amount of games on a wide variety of platforms by scraping the AllGame.com website.  You can modify your search string as necessary and you are free to choose the best available match.  Only missing information will be imported, unless you specify otherwise.  Below is a slideshow that shows how easy the built-in web scraping is to use.  All of the information (description, screenshot image, marquee image) for the game Duke Nukem 64 is scraped from AllGame.com on the fly.
