Take-Two (Rockstar Game's publisher) issued a Cease & Desist on a popular single-player file modification tool OpenIV, pissing off the entire modding community following that game. Steam users have been reviewing the game negatively on Steam to lower the review score, attempting to deter any new buyers and make a statement about why it was a bad idea.
It should probably be noted that Steam might save your payment information to the account after buying the game. To avoid having your grandson knowingly or unknowingly make a slew of unwanted purchases, just remove the payment method on the Steam Account Page.
Alternatively, you can buy him a Steam Gift Card (20$ or 50$) that he can apply to his account to buy whatever it is he wants.
Also, high five to being an awesome grandma! :)
I made an account this morning to post this, but dumb low karma rule.
So thank you for posting this! I have been waiting for this forever!
Link for the news:
Store Page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/242760/The_Forest/
It's high fantasy instead of high camp, but Pyre sounds a lot like what you're looking for.
With passing, offensive and defensive moves, different point totals for scoring via throw or body slam, and the unique gameplay tweak of having a banishment aura that disappears when you have the ball, the game is a tight series of team fights with a fantasy ruleset that has surprising depth.
I just noticed this too, no idea wtf is going on, and I'm on OS X + have never signed on to steam on any computer other than this one, so practically zero chance of my account having been compromised. Everything is in Russian, real real weird, be careful. I'm somehow not even logged into the store if I access it through the Steam application.
Edit: With some experimenting, it seems that every store page links you to a new account. I don't know if this is the same for everyone, something weird is happening.
Sniper Elite shows me logged in as [username removed]
Football Manager shows me logged in as [username removed]
Going to the actual profile pages shows me logged in as me though, and the homepage shows me logged in as nobody.
Logging in shows everything in Russian for me, but if I try to change the language I get this error: "Изменить язык. Произошла ошибка во время сохранения сделанных изменений. Пожалуйста, повторите попытку позже."
Edit: The Russian text says "Change the language. An error occurred while saving your changes . Please try again later." Please stop telling me now.
Update: /u/HalfBurntToast another worrying aspect of this is I'm able to see which accounts do and do not have SteamGuard installed. I don't know if the information reported is accurate, but it's concerning.
Here are three known workarounds:
1) Go to https://store.steampowered.com/account/ and see your purchased history
2) Change Detail view to "Recent" under library, it'll show the game in purchased order. BUT it shows your ENTIRE library, not just installed ones. Steam beta only.
3) Change library view to List View, and sort the games by Last Played. It'll list the games in purchased order.
While you could certainly optimize them more, I'd argue that this type of graph just doesn't work that well with a big number of items that are full of spikes.
If you keep the number of entries low and only have slow gradual changes it works great, like these, but once it gets more complex, separate line charts might be more appropiate.
It's there for a long time already. It's only on store page, it is suppose to promote game.
You can disabled this in Steam settings
To The Moon
Not only because it's short enough, but because you'll want to finish it in one sitting.
You'll likely cry a bit that day, though.
Campo Santo announced and are working on In The Valley of Gods, so I guess that's the next Valve game after Artifact? Anless Valve cancel it, which I hope not because it looks great
It's single player and storydriven too... holy crap Valve could actually put out a new single player game!
Edit: They've confirnmed In The Valley of Gods is still coming out So yeah, that's absolutly goign to be the next Valve game!
*Edit: Apparently he already did!
Op, you can add link to Denuvo Steam Curator to your post.
It tries to solve this exact problem. While subscribed you will see this curator info right on the Steam Store Page of games that have Denuvo installed.
Crawl on Steam:
Crawl is an indie dungeon crawler rogue-like with a medieval fantasy theme and pixel graphics. Features a control the monster hot-seat mechanic, shared-screen multi-player for up to 4 players, solo-player mode, lots of unlocks, character leveling, over 60 unique monsters, and a run length of about 30 minutes.
Steam reviews suggest this game has very fun local multi-player gameplay and although lacking online multi-player, it works with online-enabling services like Parsec; a comparably weak single-player experience; unique gameplay mechanics; challenging difficulty; stylish pixel graphics and enjoyable soundtrack; and has a Steam average total playtime of 4.5 hours.
Deal is a historical low since leaving Early Access. Was previously included in the 2nd/BTA tier of the Down Under Bundle by Humble Bundle and the Humble Monthly May 2016 bundle. Strongly worth considering if you have some local friends to play with or remote ones willing to try a service like Parsec.
Nvidia : 75.26%
AMD : 14.89%
Intel : 9.69%
Oculus (so higher end of the spectrum for PC gamers) :
Nvidia : 92.4%
AMD : 7.6%
Intel : n/a (no VR capable Intel IGP)
Where is AMD a real competitor exactly ? They are using the same architecture since 2012 (GCN) with no new one in sight (Nvidia has gone through Fermi, Kepler, Maxwell, Pascal and now Volta, in the same timespan).
AMD is finally being a competitor to Intel again on the CPU market, but not to Nvidia on GPUs.
>You would be given a random username at the top of the page instead of yours [...] clicking that username would bring up that user's account
It's a fine point, but this is actually incorrect. Every time you loaded any page, you'd be given a completely different cached page. It wasn't the same user. Clicking that button takes you to https://store.steampowered.com/account/, which always ended up being a different account. *Edit: This is of course a worse problem, as you'd get a new account's personal info every time you hit refresh.
It always bugs me when TB makes little mistakes like this, since he always talks as if he's an authority on everything, yet he makes silly little mistakes that show he really isn't paying attention.
Edit: Then later on...
>The problem is that it would seem, that the account page was not the only page you could access during the caching problem. There have been widespread reports including on the admittedly unofficial site, SteamDB, that it was also possible to access their checkout page through their cart, if they had items in the cart
Again, he's talking as if you're logged into one account. The reality was, every single page you viewed on steampowered.com was generated for the previous person. So every page you went to, it was logged in as someone else. Go to the account page and keep hitting refresh, you'll keep getting account after account after account. Go to the checkout page and hit refresh, same thing. Go to the cart page, any page, go to buy Skyrim, it doesn't matter, you get a different account every single page load. Refresh, Russian, refresh, German, refresh, English, refresh, Korean. You're not viewing one guy's cart from his account page, then going to that one guy's checkout page.
It's absolutely fucked right now. Literally just go to https://store.steampowered.com/account/ and you'll be shown a random users personal details.
Some sysadmin somewhere is probably having a heart attack.
Edit: They finally shut the servers down after nearly an hour of totally exposed account details.
Forgive me r/rocketleague, I suck at Rocket League.
But I'm a VR developer and here's a GIF from an app I'm working on called Bigscreen. It lets you use your computer on huge floating screens in VR (Oculus Rift or HTC Vive). Watch movies, browse reddit, or play your favorite Steam games. It also has Multiplayer, which this GIF shows. Up to 4 people can hangout in a virtual living room, with voice chat and screen streaming.
This basically enables "virtual LAN parties" in VR. Hangout, watch movies, or play games with your buddies across the country. Like real LAN parties, you can collaborate/strategize, screen peek / cheat, or just hangout. It's hard to explain how cool and immersive this feels in VR. Hope I'm not breaking some sub rule by sharing this, but I figured you guys might think it's cool!
There's actually a VR LAN party for Rocket League right now, today. So if you've got an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, come join us in Bigscreen! More info about the party here. I'm gonna be playing in one of the [noob] rooms. Go easy on me :P
So I bought DayZ Standalone when it was first released on Steam because Early Access was a new thing, and I had hopes that one of my favourite games/mod would have a fully supported standalone version(500 hours on Arma 2).
Since Valve has finally addresed our rights as consumers in Australia, I've been granted a full refund 4 years after I purchased it. It might help that I only had 21 minutes playtime, but I'm finally glad that the developers of that scam of a game will lose my money.
PSA to all Australians. Stand up for your rights.
EDIT: Let me just say that you can't just abuse this and refund whatever you want. But we are now entitled to a refund past the 2 hour/14 day mark if the game is completely unplayable or falsely advertised ^^^like ^^^dayz.
EDIT2: FYI, I kept getting refund requests bouncing back after 10-30 minutes using the refund system, and well I don't believe for a second that a real Valve employee checks the requests. So I sent another ticket about my account and not directly linked to a purchase and a real person responded.
EDIT3: For anyone who doesn't understand: https://store.steampowered.com/consumer_rights_notice/
HOW TO ACTUALLY SEND A REAL STEAM SUPPORT REQUEST
Go here: https://help.steampowered.com/en/
Select the "Purchases" option
Scroll all the way down and click "View complete purchasing history"
Find the game you want to refund and click it
Click the "I have a question about this purchase" option
Write in your reason for refunding.
The Surge on Steam:
The Surge is an action RPG with a sci-fi theme and detailed 3D graphics from the same developers as Lords of the Fallen. Features fast-paced Souls-like melee combat with its own unique mechanics, a crafting system, leveling and many skill implants, exo-skeletons, and a 20+ hour long main story lengthened by included DLC.
Steam reviews suggest this game has challenging, fast-paced and unique combat that can get a little repetitive, but most enjoy; good combat controls that are easy to learn, but difficult to master; resolved the vast majority of its release-day technical issues; very nice graphics, animation and environments; a stronger early-to-mid than late game; only a handful of bosses; alright music/sound; many customizable gameplay settings; a somewhat generic, but alright story; and mixed opinion on level designs.
Deal is a couple dollars above the recent historical low of $22.99 from GameBillet. Includes base game with all current DLC, which add items, skills and story content, delivered as a single Steam key. Possibly worth considering for Souls-like fans interested in similar combat with its own unique, faster paced mechanics.
It's not only the payment details. Let me past my previous comment:
"By browsing the store you can end up logged as random people. What is worse by going to https://store.steampowered.com/account you get full access to people's accounts.
Attackers can get your e-mail, your account number, last digits of your phone and do a phishing attack.
They potentially (will not try it myself) could remove games from your library because valve had the bright idea to add that "feature", could refund your games and could set up a mobile identificator on their phone and lock you out.
Edit: and it seems that you indeed can: https://archive.is/ChYBI
Imo this is unacceptable and valve should immediately take the store down until they fix their mess. Message valve on twitter and raise awareness to show them that you are not ok with their massive security failure."
Moon Hunters : 78% Positive
Jalopy : 81% Positive
Crazy Machines 3 : 96% Positive
You just have to remove the F2P license first.
Go into "Account Details" > "View licenses and product key activations":
(Or click this: https://store.steampowered.com/account/licenses/)
Click the "Remove" button next to ESEA and then click "OK".
Then you should be able to purchase the premium version.
If you somehow managed to get the F2P version of Skara tied to your Steam account, Humble won't let you use the key in this bundle.
To fix this, go to https://store.steampowered.com/account/ and click on "Remove" next to "Skara - Free to Play".
Nope, it's an on-demand license, which is the "new" way of doing free games on Steam. It'll stay on your account forever unless you manually remove it here.
If they take down the store page on December 31st, you'll still be able to install it by opening steam://install/312990.
I read somewhere, I think it was in the book "Portal 2 - The Final Hours", that a representative of Valve visited the DigiPen fair to scout for talent and projects. The representative saw ND and told the team that he wasn't that interested in the project. The ND team called or emailed him the next day asking him why he didn't like it and how to improve it. They got invited to the Valve office to show the game again and get some advice. When they demoed the game Gabe walked by, saw the game and hired them on the spot.
edit: Just looked it up. The story is in the book. source: Portal 2 - The Final Hours , page 58 https://www.scribd.com/document/54009497/The-Final-Hours-of-Portal-2 The book is just 2 bucks on steam if you want to buy it https://store.steampowered.com/app/104600/Portal_2__The_Final_Hours/
Workaround for people from NA (you have to be logged in the Steam client):
It may say something weird like "You are about to install .", but just click next, then it'll say "This game cannot be installed.", but you'll have it registered to your account (https://store.steampowered.com/account/).

>As a suggestion, I think that all would rather have a notification saying 'Steam Winter Sale 2016 is active!' or similar.
you can already have that...
it is called a X Seasonal promotion is begining.
For the people asking how to see this, you will need the Enhanced Steam extension, and then simply head over to "account details" on the Steam website, and you will see it in the right-hand pane.
Theres a Steam game curator called SJW Awareness. It's a bunch of games that "don't toe Progressivism or Identity politics, pander to that ideology, or has an "SJW" attitude with gamers".
My new favorite "aggrieved" group are gamers who get upset because developers removed breast jiggle physics from female characters.
EDIT: Link to group.
Yes, there is!
If you head over to this page there is a couple of things you can do to improve that.
The first would be to go to the "Tags to Filter Out" section, and in your case, add tags like Visual Novel and Anime, and that'll filter out a lot of those sorts of games. The downside is, you can only put 3 tags in there, so you can't block a wide range of stuff.
However, you can also customise your Discovery Queue better by going to Discovery Queue Preferences lower on the page, and then click on "Customise Discovery Queue", and then exclude whatever tags you don't want to appear in your Discovery Queue. It's really helped clear out a lot of those games from my steam store, and I barely notice them anymore.
EDIT: The filter isn't storewide, as /u/7Soul pointed out, but it will stop it from appearing in places like your front page, new recommended games and your discovery queue, which should help a bit.
I have been dealing with this crap for a year now because for some reason steam decided I really want to play this shitty MMORPG made in Korea but available only in US and throws it into every queue I try to complete. But there are 2 ways I have found to deal with this BS and refresh your queue.
Once you get that error and you can't start another queue because it starts with that same region locked game, just
go to steam store main page. Open any game from the front page and press "View Your Queue" button in bottom right corner. You'll go to "Your Discovery Queue" page, press "Start another queue" there. Once again it will give you same error that game is not available in your region. After that go to store page again, scroll down to your queue and it will be refreshed and you can continue. But there's a good 99% chance your last game in queue will be the same region locked crap, so you'll have to repeat this procedure again.
Another way to fix it. When steam gives you this error page right click anywhere on the screen and choose "Copy Page URL", paste it anywhere and it will give you AppID of the game. For example steam gives me this https://store.steampowered.com/app/296300 . After that go to https://steamcommunity.com/app/*AppID* (replace AppID with the numbers that you got from your URL) and follow that community. It will remove that game from your queue and it won't appear there again until you unfollow it. This method not the best, following the game that you'll never be able to play and might not even like is not really a good solution and if there're multiple region locked games in your queue you'll have to do the same thing for all of them.
Sorry, I had to delete + repost this.
This is a historic low according to ITAD. It has mixed reviews on steam.
I think I'm going to bite.
The Steam Link is also the same price.
Also, there's a bundle for the Steam Link and the Steam Controller that is a 37% discount for both versus the 30% discount if bought individually (priced at $62.98).
Just a reminder that I made this page to track the Linux share on Steam, based on the monthly data Valve put out from their HW Survey.
Just thought it would be more interesting to see a timeline, rather than an article every month.
Link for anyone curious. It's linked in the client via a box under all the usual front page items - right at the bottom, of course.
I'm still amused that the ACCS managed to wrangle our outdated law to be effective against digital products regardless.
I don't think there is a code redemption function in the mobile app, but you can visit this in a mobile browser and do it there: https://store.steampowered.com/account/registerkey
I did mine that way just now.
If you're looking for a new RTS you may want to check out Northgard, it's 25% off right now; I wrote my thoughts on it here- essentially, it's a fast paced and very well polished Viking RTS that's currently in Early Access. The devs are quite active when it comes to updating the game- their next update will introduce the game's campaign mode.
By browsing the store you can end up logged as random people. What is worse by going to https://store.steampowered.com/account you get full access to people's accounts.
Imo this is unacceptable and valve should immediately take the store down until they fix their mess. Message valve on twitter and raise awareness to show them that you are not ok with their massive security failure.
Take a look at Dream Quest, made by Peter Whalen who now works for Blizzard, and Monster Slayers, my personal favorite in this genre.
Here's the details for today's big update!

If you are a fan of the Alien movies then I highly recommend Alien: Isolation. It's a sequel to the first Alien movie. You play as Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Ellen Ripley (main protagonist of the Alien movies).
Its been 15 years since her mother's mining ship, the USCSS Nostromo, disappeared and has recently been found. Completely empty with only the ships black box to tell the story. Amanda works a mining vessel like her mother and the ship has been called in to the space station that is slowly being decommissioned. This where the derelict Nostromo was docked, awaiting Amanda to retrieve it's black box.
But the flight recording wasn't the only thing that came aboard from the Nostromo...
Alien, Alien: Isolation, and Aliens is my head canon trilogy for this series. Screw the rest and Ridley Scott trying his best half ass the franchise.
I can't believe no one has mentioned it- the Eidos Anthology is at an all - time low of 80% off.
It includes all games (and DLC) from the following series:
And a few other games. An incredible value!
Last year or so? https://steamcommunity.com/games/593110/announcements/detail/1301948399251160549

Ok I read all your responses and I think I can clarify some of your confusion.
Your brother plays on Steam. Steam is an online digital platform used for playing games that are compatable with it. It makes PC gaming extremely simple without needing to use Physical mediums like CDs. Everything is built in internally from the programs used to run Steam compatable games to a Steam store used to purchase games from a library of thousands of titles.
You can purchase gift codes for all games on Steam including the Payday content you were asking about. Simply go to the Steam store and search for Payday 2. This page will pop up displaying the base game, the game of the year edition as well all the DLCs that have been released to date which you can purchase separately.
There are currently 26 DLCs (including 3 soundtracks) since the release of Payday 2. It seems like much but this year alone we have had 4 sales which have varied from 50% to 75% and even 90% off at times. The community is predicting another such sale will occur later this month or early October in celebration of CrimeFest, which is a Community event created by the Developers at Overkill Software (Payday creators) to get fans involved and create new playerbases. This is not a DLC nor a purchase, it is something all members can participate in for free.
If you purchase all content right now it is probably cheaper to buy the Game of the Year edition and all the separate DLCs from 2015-present. If you wait for the sale, purchasing them individually actually saves a few dollars. During the sale you can most likely purchase the game and all DLC for roughly $30-$40. If you purchase not during a sale it can cost upwards of $100-$120.
Evoland 2 on Steam:
Evoland 2 is an indie RPG with a medieval fantasy setting, humorous parodying tone, and mixed graphic styles that evolve as you progress through the game. Inspired by numerous RPGs through gaming history and provides around 18 hours of gameplay.
Steam reviews suggest this game has generally improved upon the first Evoland game in every way, but continues to focus on being more an art-piece than on strong or engaging gameplay; a very frequently enjoyed experience with novel era-transistioning graphic and gameplay mechanic; often enjoyed characters and story; a nostalgic and light hearted feel; has significantly more content than the first one; and some criticism over being too long, having too few save points, and some annoying and/or poorly designed segments.
Deal is not a historical low, which as $4.63 from GamesPlanet UK at the end of 2016. Deal price is typical of recent sales though. Has been bundled 3 times previously over a year ago. Probably worth picking up if you enjoyed the prequel or the evolving gameplay/graphics mechanic sounds appealing, but you don't want to wait for its next bundle inclusion.
Steam now has an easier method for key activation which you could hook into. Not as easy as OAuth, but better than manual copying like before.
You could add a link to your redemption page to make this easier on users.

Developer is giving away full version DRM-free copy of the game via torrent.
Release date - 17 Jul 2017
$14.99 on Steam and GOG.
> So we decided to do something about it! If you don't have the money and want to play the game, we have a safe torrent on the Pirate Bay of the latest version of Darkwood (1.0 hotfix 3), completely DRM-free. There's no catch, no added pirate hats for characters or anything like that. We have just one request: if you like Darkwood and want us to continue making games, consider buying it in the future, maybe on a sale, through Steam, GOG or Humble Store. But please, please, don't buy it through any key reselling site. By doing that, you're just feeding the cancer that is leeching off this industry.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but steam is 13+, while TF2 is 17+. If I hear a squeaker in the chat, I will indeed issue a votekick on them. I will mute them if it doesn't pass and if they're being exceptionally annoying(micspaming, swearing, etc). There are some people under the required ages for the game that can be respectful and helpful to the team, but normally they are just an annoyance and a hindrance to the rest of the players.
This one we finished a couple months ago, and can be played using a traditional keyboard and mouse or a full VR setup. Works great in the Vive :)
They did remake it. RealMyst is a full 3d environment now.
There is also a fan remake of Riven in the works call Starry Expanse
Tricky Towers on Steam:
Tricky Towers is a physics puzzle game with a magical fantasy theme and cute cartoon 2D graphics. Features competitive multi-player for up to 4 players, support for tournaments, timed and challenge-based single-player modes, provides about 9 hours of content, and an average of 60-70 players online.
Steam reviews suggest this game has really fun multi-player gameplay; single-player gameplay that's alright by comparison; a tetris-like look with a focus on building high and using both defensive and offensive magic spells; and mostly criticized for being too expensive at full price or lack of online players.
Deal is a historical low, but was previously included a little over a year ago in the 1st/$1 tier of both the Humble Hooked on Multiplayer Bundle by Humble Bundle and the Chaos Bundle by Fanatical. Possibly worth considering if you have friends to play either online or locally.
Why this stupid misleading title? Steam just removed Chinese cyber cafés from their survey which are almost entirely based on Intel and nvidia.
Edit: oh nvm. I thought it was your title. Guru3d doesn't actually know because they didn't do their research. Doesn't surprise me.
Edit2: Here. I guess some people just don't like to read text surrounding graphs, or they just want clicks from r/amd

Hey, our plans haven't changed since our original "Early Access" checklist on Steam:
Q: Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
A: “Early Access will be free. We plan to add at least one (entirely optional) feature to test out the payment pipeline.
After launch, we plan to add some premium features over time that cost money (examples might be scheduled tournaments, or special avatar items). But our current plan is to always have a free tier that lets you get into the game and have a great experience. That could change depending on how the VR market develops, but that's our current thinking.”
This is closest to your #2, although we would obviously put a more positive spin on it (e.g., we don't think of our avatar items as "cosmetic crap", but rather an important way to express yourself in Rec Room!)
Our belief is that there's nothing inherently wrong with microtransactions. It's all about how you do them.
We say on the front page of our website: "We respect our customers. We value long term connections over making a quick buck. No exploitive monetization methods."
...and that's how we think about it.
But we've always been up front about the fact that we will need to charge for some stuff in Rec Room eventually.
Steam don't delete Sale pages - what I mean is, pages related to a Weekend Deal or Midweek Madness will still exist even after the sale ends.
We already had a couple of Anime Weekends and this is why this page exists. Here's an example on CoD titles, Square Enix Weekend, BANDAI NAMCO Play Anime Weekend.
It's just a leftover on Steam, that may or may not be used again someday.
I don't think the privacy changes Valve made affects the daily player count statistics as it is publicly available data as seen here, so the decrease in average daily player count is likely accurate.
If it has been less than one year, and you are an Australian citizen, you are entitled to a full refund.
If you submit a request, don't do it the way where you select the game you want to refund because it will just automatically be rejected. Start a new support ticket under a different contact option about your account, and let them know that all games come protected by ACL.
> When you buy video games from Valve Corporation as a consumer located in Australia, the video games come with guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law that cannot be excluded, including a guarantee that the video games are of acceptable quality. You are entitled to a replacement or refund from the retail supplier of the video games for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.
Most important detail here being "for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage."
Give evidence that Law Breakers is shutting down, because it clearly is foreseeable that you will come to a loss. If they reject it again, then notify them that you will submit a complaint to the ACCC, for breaching Australian Consumer Rights, and you are fully entitled to a refund.
edit: lmao love the downvoters, game shutting down after taking peoples money, but fuck you for buying it in the first place :)
Here's the Steam Store link for those who are interested, where it's currently 33% off (current price is $20.99)

Sorry about that. When i first started the page, it was on the thought that i'd target people similar to my girlfriend. But I see now that that's not always the case.
I created a new page that's more inclusive.
Thankyou for you feedback!
Please let me know what you think of the updated version.
Here's the fix for the "Already in your cart" error. Open the store page in your browser, and when the error message pops up, open the following link in a new tag and proceed to buy it. Mine is currently downloading right now!
they actually changed "PC" to "windows" in the search page just today but it is still "PC" in the greenlight search

For this month alone there's been (UTC, so Saturnday could still be Friday night in US).
Instead of Audioshield, I'd recommend picking up either Soundboxing or Holodance. Both aren't as well known as Audioshield but are quite a bit better in my opinion. Audioshield was nice as a launch game but it's very bare-bones.
Soundboxing has a great in-game editor and uses user-created beatmaps instead of automatic ones. Currently my most played VR game and a great workout.
Holodance has a lot of customization and game modes with the developer pushing out lots of great content updates. It can do Osu beatmaps as well as Audioshield-style automatic beatmaps.
Short of checking your email for the gift (Search for "received a gift"), there is no history afaik. You can see the game was a gift, on your licences page but there are details about who gave the gift.
You can redeem the code on your phone tho. It's super easy.

Proof that it works
Can't recommend any books but Life is Strange is fantastic and I think it would be very enjoyable for non-gamers.
Make sure to stay away from the Facebook page and only watch the first trailer on the Steam store page as the other trailers have spoilers.
I got hooked at the end of Life is Strange's second episode and that seems to be common over on /r/lifeisstrange. There are some tedious parts in the middle of episode 2 but play through them.
Pretty happy with how our sword smithing and assembly system is shaping up in Yore VR. Full tutorial vid was uploaded last week and can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcKr4WvJH9A
A couple more days left to save 25% during the Steam Sale as well so fill yer boots!
NOTICE: You have to register an account on this website, after that you can add the game to your cart and checkout. You'll get a key that you can activate on Steam. In order to receive trading cards, you must not have the game previously owned on your account via the free verson on the Steam Store. You can remove the game's free version from your account if you go to https://store.steampowered.com/account/licenses/, and locate the game. After that you can enter the code and activate the 'paid' version. It will stay in your library if activated correctly. Trading cards start dropping after about 2 hours of playing a game. While this is a Free to Play title in the Steam Store, it does remain in your library forever, and you will receive card drops the same way as if it is a paid game.
EDIT: It has also been confirmed that it adds a game to your game-count on your Profile Page. Thanks, @phrayse
Oknytt is a very charming adventure, lovely art and atmosphere, fairly long, and based in Swedish folklore. One of my favorite point-and-click adventures. It's a mere US $0.49 in this sale.
The good news: Feral are aware there is demand for Lego on Linux.
The problem: There haven't been any Mac ports of Lego games since June 2016, and without those to spread the cost there aren't likely to be Linux ports.
I'm sending a message in support of these games coming to us - my Steam preferences are set to Linux only and the Lego games which have been ported to Mac are on my wishlist. Maybe that message would be clearer if I instead wishlisted the Lego games released since then.
Unfortunately I don't think there is anything more we can do.
Edit: I've added the newer Lego games to my wishlist.
Its 15$ but Binding of Isaac is really neverending fun. Please get beyond the graphics. the gameplay and versatility of this is incredibly deep. There are all those combinations of items that make every run unique and all kinds of unexpected things happen. It really only started losing its fun when I had some few hundred hours in it and knew it inside and out
They've announced their game currently in production, In The Valley of Gods, is still going to be developed and released! It's single player and story driven, so yeah, Valve totally have a new single player game coming out! :D

You probably don't need to. You can prefill the box via URL parameters. Granted it's not as convenient as one click, but at least it's supported first party.
I would assume that you clicked a link on somebody's profile. To fix it - simply send somebody this link http://steamcommunity.com/my/home?l=english in the steam chat, or maybe make it a comment on your profile or somewhere else and then click it yourself.
(You have to click the link from the client so it would open inside the Steam Client.)
No idea what happened on mobile though, it's unlikely that they sync language preferences. Perhaps, you should check that setting
Publishers can choose to blacklist curators though, and I'm pretty sure there is also a global blacklist on Valve's side.
This curator for example won't show up on any game they "recommend" unless you're subscribed and logged in... for obvious reasons.
Thanks so much! We post pretty regularly on Twitter and Facebook. Wishlisting on Steam is always a good thing too ;).
what, you haven't heard of the greatness that is NATSUKI? Please partake in doki doki literature club at your earliest convenience, it is one of the most fun and wholesome games ever made, not to mention free :)
Dear God, you're right.
My recommended games are:

I shall! Thank you!

Great idea. I'll lend you my ax.
Elliot Quest on Steam:
Elliot Quest is an action RPG platformer with a fantasy setting and pixel graphics similar to and likely inspired by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Features 5 dungeons, 16 bosses, character leveling, multiple items and magical abilities, 3 unique endings based on player decisions, and about 15 hours of content.
Steam reviews suggest this game has fun gameplay that is somewhat challenging and doesn't hold your hand; a story that's enjoyed by most; controls that can feel a little stiff until you get used to them; very nice graphics and sound; some metroidvania-like backtracking; and experience-loss on death and inventory auto-saving that can lead to tedious grinding and restocking trips.
Deal is a historical low, but has been bundled a few times before. Possibly worth considering if you can get past some of the game's rough edges.
steamgames.com belongs to valve. if you try to go there you will see it's redirected to store.steampowered.com
check your purchase history on steam and cross reference the date/sum https://store.steampowered.com/account/history/
If you think it's an illegitimate charge I'd contact steam support before issuing a chargeback.
Man, you say stuff like "no one would want that" but maybe because I like weird obscure war games, but I would totally love a game with a dishonest briefing "narrator."
Think just Goering and his force of 1000 109s or focke wulfs that will save Germany in '45.
There is a war game that I still need to futz with that puts you on the Eastern front and basically forces you to deal with Hitler waking up and telling you to attack someplace completely pointless, and your fellow commanders not giving a shit about your offensives and so not giving you proper supplies, etc. Decisive Campaigns: Barbarossa for those curious.
I don't have much to add but I'll always take the opportunity to recommend Ibb & Obb. It's a fantastic, relatively simple and incredibly charming platformer/puzzle game. It starts off easy and takes a while to ramp up but the later/optional levels do take a bit of doing. Most importantly the game just oozes good feels and is paced very well so even if to begin with stuff is a bit easy it's still a blast to go through. Highly recommended.
I haven't played Standalone since 2014 or 2015, so I was really blown away by 0.63. While some people derisively call the game a forest running simulator, personally I've always thought that's what DayZ is all about. And hot damn, did they nail the forest running experience on the head here. The environments are absolutely gorgeous, the performance is good, and the survival mechanics seem like you actually have to bother with them. They've finally added flowing water and streams, a feature I've been itching for since Arma 2!
Sure, there are still lots of rough edges, but I'm actually excited for this game again. There are tons of survival games out there, but none of them really capture the fundamental fantasy of DayZ. They're always either "Minecraft, except like, more realistic!" or basically PUBG. The only one that looks like it's even close to the DayZ fantasy is SCUM, but that's yet another early access title that isn't even out in early access yet.
Play it now, right in your browser at the Internet Archive!
There is also Empires of the Undergrowth in Early Access, that isn't quite like SimAnt, but it's the best we've got in the modern age.
Actually, there's a pretty simple way to find out:
Go to Licenses and product key activations in your account, and if there's a "Remove" option before "Complimentary", it means the game is F2P, and not free to keep.
Meaning if you uninstall it, it will disappear from your library.
Free 2 Keep games do not have the "Remove" option, and will stay in your library even after uninstalling.
Like Abe's Oddysee they gave away for free a year ago:
December 21, 2015 @ 3:39pm
We are currently undergoing rescheduled maintenance as of 6:00 PM EST as we have an important patch to release. We will periodically update players as to when the game will be back up. We anticipate downtown for another 20 to 30 minutes."
The authorizations we make for credit card verification are between $1 and $2. If you're seeing $5, that was something else. Are you sure that's not from when you added money to your wallet? You can see a list of Steam store transactions here: https://store.steampowered.com/account/store_transactions
Sounds like you recently began the credit card verification process:
There would have been two card authorizations in the $1-$2 range. The transactions do not clear and will stay in the pending/authorization state until the bank automatically drops the auth.

Highly recommend Matthew Brown's puzzle games: https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/3331/Logic_Puzzle_Pack/
If you like math, minesweeper, or logic puzzles, you will enjoy these.
I'm picking up Cypher, his newest game. Didn't know it'd come out already
Dude's lying his ass off, doesn't say that anywhere.

I'm impressed by this trident-meaning comment that I want to explain stuff out of the blue.
