Steam unveils major updates to wishlist feature

It's now possible to filter your list to show games discounted by a certain percetage, and there's the more generally useful option to only show titles that are currently on sale. Unlike in the past, Steam no longer does flash deals - all discounts will be available for the entire length of the sale. Is there anything you are hoping to grab in the Steam sale today?

For instance, you now have the ability to filter your wishlist by genre, meaning that you can more easily whittle down your options when you're in the mood to play a specific kind of game.

Players can now apply a filter that hides non-discounted games and displays titles that currently only have a price reduction of at least 25 percent, 50 percent, or 75 percent. You can also filter by various tiers of price, or filter to only see items you can buy with your current Steam Wallet balance.

Hero football coach Aaron Feis dies in Florida school shooting
Nicholas Dworet , who died in a Florida school shooting, had committed to swim for the University of Indianapolis. The college announced Thursday that the senior was among those killed in the mass shooting at his high school.

Check out the wishlist update by heading over to the Steam Blog's official announcement. You can also see popular tags for each game underneath the title, and filter out Early Access titles, which will appear again when development is complete.

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. On the surface this seemed like a straight-forward request, and in most cases it turned out to work just fine. However, games with alternative options such as a Deluxe Edition or Limited Edition will require the user to click through to the store page to find the right option. Instead of an "Add to Cart" link, you'll see a "View Details" button. The above changes are now live on Steam, and it sounds like Valve will be making further improvements as it receives more feedback on the new-look wishlists.
