Sharing Steam games coming soon?
With all of the news about DRM and sharing your games everywhere with Microsoft’s screw up, Sony’s digs, and Microsoft’s 180, it seems like Steam decided to (possibly) try something new!
In the source code of the new beta version of Steam, there is something called “Shared game library,” while it’s not very clear as to what that is, it suggests you’ll be able to let your friends play games when you’re not playing them, and you won’t have access to them when they are playing. With most new Steam features though, there’ll probably only be a few titles in the beginning that’ll take advantage of this feature.
Even though this is exciting news for PC gamers, we don’t want you to get your hopes up. This is a beta version of the software and can be removed or be something totally different in the end. We’ll keep you updated!

Fire Emblem: Awakening’s latest DLC release Summer Scramble lets players see a selection of characters in their swimwear, but in the case of Tharja, Nintendo of America decided it didn’t want to show too much of the Dark Mage.
Meanwhile in Japan, Nintendo has no problems with allowing licensees to create these lewd Tharja figures. At least the company didn’t edit this out, which is what everyone really wanted from the Summer Scramble DLC:
