A truly magnificent Skin, and I am sure I will truly enjoy critiquing this beauty.

The layout though simple has an astounding impact on its viewers, perhaps because of the grayish blend effect given to it.

Though to some viewers this may seem a little "un-original", its a great piece of work done by you.

What really makes this skin appealing is the way it has been presented as a deviation. The pale gradient in the background adds a mesmerizing effect to the image, and makes us want to simply view the image.

As for my personal usage, I'd definitely want to use this as it is simple yet has a majestic touch to it.

Hoping more great works from you in the future.

Smooth and soft and most important of all: a professional look.

View:
This skin for Steam creates an easy overview and look, definately taking your eyes drawn to it. For that I give 5 stars since the overview is insanely clear and beautiful!

Originality:
The origionality is exclusive and you won't find this somewhere else!
The colors, the shapes.. Everything is exclusive in this skin and makes it origional!

Technique:
The technique is fabulous, combining these fonts, lines, and dots with professional quality! It can never be perfect, but this isn't far from perfect!

Impact:
Gave me a huge impact that I've been describing above.
This changed my own view on particular things, I have to thank the author for this! (~pulseh)

This is definately worth being or becoming a favorite, and never to forget!

Minimal, elegant, and entirely fluid to the original design. This is the only way I ever want my Steam interface to look again, as far as I can imagine. I really hope Steam eventually provides a way to let skins automatically update for those who can't be bothered to keep checking for new versions of the skin when new versions of Steam come out. Really, they should just hire you to redesign the default skin, because this is much better for the average user than the default interface. It works better, looks better, and is easier to use. Excellent in every way.

Words words words. I don't need them, just have a bunch of stars and start feeling like a boss. But the thing that really impressed me I must say, is the design, it's realiable and soft!
I appreciate the various and quick shapes, the clean interface and the impact it gives when you look at it!
The buttons in the Chat are very soft looking and I like them, I also love the Font, a well choosen one! Everything is in the right place and the tecnique is epic. There is nothing out of place.

Ps: You get an extra star and a Llama Badge for choosing Borderlands as your presentation pic!

This skin works very well and preserves the original feel of Steam's menu. It is very efficient, and everything is where I felt like it should be. The toolbars are very thin, and it gives a clean, relaxed feel, while still being complex with well designed backgrounds.

Pixelvision immensely simplifies the Steam interface and uses a variety of shapes to keep it interesting. I personally am a fan of the circle around the back button, since it goes along very well with the font used as well as the icons. The use of squares (around the profile pictures) was interesting, and it didn't take away from the overall theme.

Because Pixelvision uses similar colours and shapes as the original Steam interface, it naturally matches the Community, News, and Store pages. Not only does it fit very well, the pages do look much better with this skin. However, this comes at the cost of a little unoriginality, but is nothing you should be concerned about; Pixelvision is my favourite Steam skin and I have to say you did a very good job. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" title="=) (Smile)"/>

I just had to give this piece full 5 stars in every regard. The design is beautiful and you did stick to the simplicity that is key when designing a UI. You kept it informative, you kept it sleek, you kept it simple but you developed that into something beautiful and just pleseant to look at.
This design does not only improve visuals, but my overall experience with Steam, since the elements are easy on the eye and the key-features are presented in a clear and sorted way. You could not have done it any better, hope to see more from you!
