Can we please get rid of these useless Rock Paper Shotgun / PC Gamer "News articles", and replace them with actual patch notes? Or maybe even a seperate Patch Notes category?

Even the ability to choose which news sources to show would be a welcome change.

They probably won't do anything about it till the UI update.

It's especially silly because this isn't really news, it's just articles related to X game, which is fine if it's just a single article but seeing as you can only see 3 from your library, the fact that the 'news' section can just get overrun with opinion pieces is a bit much.

Or even just the ability to block specific news sources. I never want to see anything from RPS, but they seem to appear in almost every news feed for some reason.

THE UI update? Is that confirmed for sometime?

Half the time it's not even articles related to the game. As I mentioned in another comment, when Cuphead first came out that's all I saw. "CUPHEAD IS HARD" "CUPHEAD IS GREAT SAYS TIM" "INTERVIEW WITH CUPHEAD CREATOR" plastered all over other games. Like, I don't care. Yeah Cuphead was awesome but if I'm looking for news about PUBG don't show me Cuphead stuff.

I could, but is that not the point of the News section? To provide news about the game? Not about how Cuphead is Tim's favourite game, or how Hello Neighbor just released its 1.0 and John played it. You know what I mean?

This screenshot is from today, about 2 minutes before I made the post. Three seperate articles from RPS about how Johnny played the game and how Geoff from Accounting hid in a bush with an AK. Why would I ever give a damn about how Geoff from the accounting department hid in a bush with an AK?

You have Patch Notes on the right. I don't see that on my client. Is that an edit you made? Or am i missing something on my side.

Thanks

Here's hoping. I love seeing new UI updates for games and such, but the news section I'm desperate to see change.

You can just check them manually.
