It's day two of the Steam community update announcements (opens in new tab) , and the focus is on groups. It's no surprise that terribly good-looking people at Valve chose to feature the very best Steam group (opens in new tab) as its example.

The remodel presents information with tabbed pages, replacing the current one-page vertical organization, and introduces Group Discussions -- forums for each group, similar to the game-specific boards which we glimpsed in yesterday's Hub Page announcement .

The announcements (opens in new tab) will keep coming for two more days, and will include a closed beta date.

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
