Here is some good news for all Steam fans. The Amazing Spider-Man has just been released on Valve’s digital distribution service and comes with four DLC packs (Rhino Challenge, Oscorp Search and Destroy Pack, The Stan Lee Adventure Pack and Lizard Rampage Pack).
In addition, Capcom is offering the Steam Resident Evil franchise with a 50% discount. Now before jumping around like little chimpanzees, know that Steam has only Resident Evil 5 and Operation Raccoon City. All the classic RE titles (alongside RE4) are not available on Valve’s service. Bummer.
Last but not least, Runic Games has released an update for Torchlight II that fixes a number of typos, tweaks various areas to prevent units from getting stuck, implemented a few specific boss room pathing fixes and makes various improvements to journal tooltips.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
