    I wouldn't go out of my way to ask review ideas, though. If you're anything like me, you probably have plenty of titles in your Steam library for future reviews.
    I do have Costume Quest, I shall add it to my list. My Steam catalogue has over 350 titles, so I am a bit spoiled for choice. That was one of the reasons for starting the blog, to make me actually play the games I've amassed.

    Thanks for the offer, but I think it's one or two words over my 100 word limit :p

    Steam seems to be releasing indi games and unannounced games the last couple of months I've never heard of, it would be cool to see those covered. :)

    I do like picking up some random indie games, and I'll make sure that I get around to reviewing them all.

    New review today - Titan Attacks, and loads more over the past few weeks.

    This is genuinely a Good Idea.

    There are loads of cheapo games that pop up on Steam, and having a quick reference to go to to see if they're within my interests would be useful.

    And so I echo others in highly suggesting a 'browse' option or an index...

    Edit: Just noticed the index...

    Yeah, I regularly visit the site to see if there's something about games that are of interest to me.
    Twitter! Occasional impressions on random sim games.

    I see that TF2, L4D2, HL2 and Portal 2 all got 10/10. Steam 'fanboi' much? :P

    Hahahaha! I think you mean Valve fanboi. Which I am, but only because they keep making amazing games :)

    That they do. Still I don't think any of them are perfect. Maybe Portal 2. But I guess if we look at the scores as a range of how much you should check said game out, 10/10 being "you must check it out", then the scores would be right.

    L4D2 especially wasn't perfect, nor was Portal 2. But of course the standard response for 10/10 is "I should probably get this" or "Biased" while anything sub 8 is crap and anything 1/10 is really crap/biased.

    How about just reviewing all scene releases as they come out?

    I would love to do that, but I lack the required funds. Unless this is an offer to buy me every single game that's released on Steam?

    We're reviewing all the games we own on Steam, but it just so happens we're mostly reviewing our indie games at the moment, as most people already know about the AAA titles.

    Cool idea. Is it possible to make the index sort by different columns?
    Maybe a thumbs up/thumbs down would be better than 1/10?

    I have no idea how I would do that, it took me long enough to learn the HTML to make the table in the first place.

    I wish I had started with a binary review system, or maybe a Play/Try/Miss. But now we're over 100 reviews in, I think it's a bit too late.
