Steam Introduces Trading Cards

Valve  Steam trading cards

Dooming the players that are obsessive about collecting things… like me. Just when I thought going through Pokemon and capping all my characters in Fire Emblem: Awakening was bad enough, Valve just had to introduce a new social system into their distribution platform.

By playing through qualified games, users can obtain tradeable trading cards which they can give away or craft into unique badges. Said badges add to a new Steam Level system (as if cards weren’t enough) to show off how big of a reproductive organ level you have. Crafting however, will also net you random rewards such as emotes, backgrounds, and the ever interesting coupon.

The system is now in beta mode and you can sign up by joining the Steam Trading Card Group.
