I've been using the beta for a while. No doubt it is easier on the eyes than regular steam. To be honest, my favorite update about it is the addition of a clock for the in game overlay.

i hate how steam displays how long you've spent playing games in total and in the past 2 weeks. Some of us like to keep the nerd in us private. Hope they gives us the option to make it private info

I've been using the Beta, but it's still got a ridiculous amount of issues, I'm surprised it's being released...

And yes, the clock is awesome. Even if I ignore it and keep gaming anyway.

haha EXACTLY! and 50 hours shows extreme self control for BFBC2 which is an epic of a game.

If you're ashamed of it, then you should probably stop playing as much man.

So Steam keeps track of gaming time. Is anyone else wondering if Steam will start charging by the hour for games? Imagine a pricing model with $1/hr of gaming locked to a specific game, or $5.00/hr where you can play as many games as you want in that hour -- the virtual arcade right in the comfort of your home.

@MrKKBB I think you'd be hard pressed to find gamers willing to rent games by the hour. Personally, I would only want to own. And plus, TommySch would have already shelled out at least $92 for a $50 game, with more to come I'm sure :)

My CSS team just got a shiny new BFBC2 server so I would be bankrupted by the end of the year...

On a separate note, does the release of the new UI mean that they'll be releasing the Mac version on the 26th too? If yes, my productivity at work is going to plummet.

You always have been able to make your profile private via the community portal.

As for the nerd part, there should be no shame. My Stem only shows 137 hours on TF2 ut I willproudly say I have 800 hours of that awesome game.

And I love the new UI. Multiple ways to actually view games and items so everyone has something.
