Steam's New Year Lunar Sale updates wishlists

Steam's Lunar New Year sale is supposed to kick off today

Steam's Lunar New Year sale is supposed to kick off today

While the sale is all well and good though, the most impactful update with this sale period are the changes being made to Steam's Wishlist. The Steam Lunar New Year Sale is now live and there are great discounts on many great games. Items on your wishlist will now show the platforms, tags, overall review score, and current price with discount.

Along with the titles listed above, the Lunar New Year sale has a ton of games ready to be purchased at discounts for fans who've waited patiently for a sale.

With every Steam sale comes a wide variety of games that are a steal for their price, relatively speaking. Not only are there a slew of discounts available, but Valve has also updated the Steam Wishlist with some new features.

We've also heard a lot of requests for the ability to filter your Wishlist by tags or genres to help find games when you're in the mood for a strategy game or an RPG. It's also now possible to exclude Early Access, pre-release, and VR-only games via a toggle. (My Steam wishlist now stands at over a hundred individual items.) Customers can sort by a number of factors including the order you've placed them in, price, review score, or by a few other metrics.

Google introduces ad blocker to Chrome: here's how it will work
The Chrome browser will from Thursday begin blocking adverts that are deemed to be annoying or otherwise detrimental to users. After a user lands on a page, Chrome's ad filter checks if that page belongs to a site that fails the Better Ads Standards .

Players frequently add unreleased games to their Wishlist, which is a helpful way to express interest in an upcoming release and be notified when the game releases.

The combination of filters and sort-orders users pick will also automatically save and apply next time the Wishlist is accessed. You won't be allowed to add some games, with multiple versions and purchase options, to the shopping cart and will instead see a button to visit the store page to refine choices further. In some cases, you can add a title directly to your cart.

Finally, a user's wishlist is now more easily customization.
