GTA V went from £40 to £51.98 just before the sale that's just scummy Source
Edit: yep, it's now '25%' off (£38.98) this is fucking disgusting that they are allowed to do this, Rockstar can suck my cunting dick, fuck me! I'm a fucking student with little disposable income and I rely on this shitting Steam sale for games I can afford, what a load of bloody bullshit
Urrrgh. Letting players activate it on Steam would help drive more sales by increasing visibility through friends lists and 'active players' charts. Seems like a short-sighted decision.
*The steamDB page for Elite is up. Looks like it's the complete package, not just a launcher.
I spent probably over $3k on Steam games. I have a steam collection of over 650 games with a total non-sale value of more than $7k. I played less than half these games and I don't intend on ever playing more than half. It's a black hole for money and if I could undo it all with one click I totally would.

They gonna show some game on Steam with OpenGL ; Even METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES
And my thought is, this unknown game is about Left 4 Dead and Source Engine 2
2K really wants people to buy DLCs. They created 4 days ago a new package that include BL1 + only 3 DLCs... instead of just adding the GOTY (game + 4 DLCs).
Edit: Oh, here is the list of things they'll add during week 2: [link]
Borderlands: Claptrap's Robot Revolution
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 1: Bloody Harvest
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 2: Wattle Gobbler
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 3: Mercenary Day
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 4: Wedding Day Massacre
Confirmed, they removed one DLC to force you to buy the BTA if you want a full game.
I'll take this moment to say that I've added "Daily Hidden Deals" section on SteamDB's sales page, which should list daily deals that are not featured on the front page (like MGR: Revengeance).
Another new feature is that we have price history graphs now. If you go to an app page and click on a currency name, it should load the graph.
In the coming days, we should have a new filter in our extension which should allow you to only display games from your wishlist on sales page.
Once the steam sales start, I urge you to click through to that thread and file a complaint with your national ombudsman/consumer protection group/chamber of commerce (a lot of people have posted links and addresses you can file to in that thread). Yes, it is very illegal in many jurisdictions (including Germany and Canada), and it's the second time Gaijin has done this now. Complaining about it will get Valve's and Gaijin's attention.
Really pathetic and unethical move.
Note: IF they start on the items that have been increased in price.
edit: Looks like we can lower our pitchforks. The Ace Pack was scheduled to go on sale today (against consumer protection laws) but was unlisted shortly before sales began, at around the same time posts on reddit about it came up. So while they're not doing anything wrong now, I think it's likely we forced their hand.
FYI 2K/Gearbox are playing a foul game. From a thread over at r/gamedeals:

Don't know how accurate this is but according to Steamdb Ids Iron Galaxy may have only gotten access to the game 2 months ago
45433 Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp CD Key
If that's the case then yeah, WB deserves most of the fault
Please stop spreading false information. The 2 months comes from the steamdb package "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp". If you look at Arkham Knight here [link] it shows the 2 months but that literally says "Last updated". Copypasting my response from elsewhere.
>Bullshit. Check the history for that package [link]
>You can clearly see they created "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" on May 29, 2014. They also added Batman: Arkham Knight to the package on the same day. The "2 months ago" only shows that the package "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" was updated 2 months ago. It existed before that, and it included Arkham Knight before that. Please stop spreading false information.
Now, having 10 people (if that's what they only had) porting the game for a year might not be enough, I don't know and I don't really care. Just stop spreading this "2 months" or "8 weeks" thing before it becomes a bigger rumour, since it's based on a total misunderstanding.
That's completely false. It was based on this [link] showing that "Iron Galaxy Devs Comp" has "2 months ago" written next to it, when you can clearly see it says "Last updated" on the column where it says 2 months ago. Idiots assumed it means Arkham Knight was added to the package 2 months ago. Copy-pasting my response from elsewhere:
>Bullshit. Check the history for that package ([link] and click "History")
Most of them are probably updates to Steamworks Common Redistributables (aka "Do you want another copy of DirectX/Visual C++ runtime DLLs?"). New files are VC++ 2012 and 2013 redistributables. Each depot is around 13 MB, so it matches up after compression. See SteamDB for history (in particular change #884217).
Edit: I would like to add my personal opinion about common redists: they really should make those depots shared so I don't have to download an extra 20-50 MB of stuff that I already have when downloading new games.
Edit 2: A breakdown of sizes.
>Before yesterday, when you opened the console to check which keys the nvidia code gave us, it was ID 56900 which was the same code given to all pre-orders. This code was registered to my account as well as I checked a couple of weeks ago. Now, the code registered to my account is 71669 which is an id that does not include the Harley quinn pre-order bonus. I did not screenshot my account back then but the thread that I posted below has some people who posted screenshots of their consoles confirming that they had the 56900 id.
>I don't see why they changed this last minute....Maybe I'm misunderstanding the steam IDs. I would like to hear from someone who bought and pre-ordered the game and see what id they have.
>Here is a thread a while back that talked about it in early June.
More ethics in game publishing than games journalism, but hey, call a dick move in anything gaming related as it is.
>"But I have a large library and don't know which games will work on Linux, and don't want to click every game in my library to find out which do and don't work"
Make no mistake. Valve are frantically working on Linux support for Steam games. Here's a graph from 6 months ago and by now they have over 900 titles working on Linux. For comparison: the total number of Steam games is somewhere around 4,000.
Here's the change log on SteamDB. Means nothing to me, but maybe someone with more knowledge can glean something from it.
Whatever it is it looks like it broke the mouse fix and PVP watchdog, which is frustrating.
NO MANDATORY UPDATE HAS BEEN RELEASED
Three hours ago, the Windows, MacOSX, and Linux clients were updated and dropped in size by ~30MB. The updates were only to remove the pre-Halloween 2013 branch.
Servers have not been updated. No update announcement has been made. This is not Halloween.
Take it one step further, if this is correct at all, Iron Galaxy has had access for ~2 months.
It may also mean they did the entire development on a non-Steam version and were making sure everything played kosher with Steamworks and whatnot, unfortunately we won't know that though.
They increased the price on Wolfenstein prior to this sale from $45 to $60. While this is an all-time low for the game, I would recommend against buying it - doing so supports deceptive practices. (It's actually at 67% off, not 75% off).
Second Edit: Looks like this was a misunderstanding. See u/StoneGoldX 's link below.
Looks like SOE enabled the game updating through steam (noupdatesafterinstall was removed, allowing Steam to autoupdate the game files and skip the launcher).
Because they have an older version of the game on Steam, Steam automatically downloaded the version it had. The launcher then checked, saw you were outdated, and then redownloaded the game.
They appear to have fixed this already by readding noupdatesafterinstall. The long term fix is to keep the steam depot up to date, but SOE seems to struggle with that.
Thanks for coming here and owning up to mistakes made. It seems clear to me now that miscommunications arose with regards to the Know's video, too, and that accidents, not malice, drove the price hike of items that were apparently going on sale.
Edit: Final version of recommendation since it seems that the HB bundle will be the complete bundle. Here is what will be added at the end according to reddit: [link]
BL1 Complete + BL2 Complete (all content including all 5 headhunter missions minus the cosmetics) for $15. If you want to play BL1 then this is the ticket :]
While I do think it is true that some of the player base was lost last month, I don't think the primary reason was the loot economy if you look at this graph, the other games lost players this month also. I think the primary reason is everyone is playing GTA V at the moment, as that's when the graphs take a nose dive.
You can also get the other two for free as well even though they say $8.99 in the store.
Click install there. On the Steam pop-up click cancel when it asks to install. The DLC will be available for your game now.
SteamDB is another resource I like to use during Sales. It was just heavily updated last year and now you can sort by discount, too. Quite useful, and I've now gone to checking this site daily during Steam Sales instead of checking the store itself (especially since Steam removed the ability to sort by discount percentage.) Page updates are pretty quick, too.
You can get it for free when you buy Hack n Slash btw (though i don't know if you get it when you buy it or when you activate it.)
Edit: You can see it on the Steam DB page
OnPurchaseGrantGuestPassPackage - Spacebase GIFT (53471)
Edit: They just patched it a few minutes ago and it may not give you a copy now.
This page says otherwise
You can clearly see the pack was removed from a Steam Summer Sale pack. It also shows that this pack was created 12 days ago. Could you please clarify this?
EDIT: Yes, I found the answer to this in his comment history and the answer was convincing enough for me.
Posted because i find this tactic of rockstar and others a rly cheap trick that need to be discussed here, Rockstar's not only did this, they also raised the price of GTA5 game prior to the discount, XCOM Enemy Within also did the same.
[link] - actually it's taking the price of the pack so it's not actually a raised price, as originaly stated, sorry about it.
[link] the price did not get raised, the old version of 50$ got removed during the first few hours for what seems a bug that downed it's price with a huge discount, and for that time the only version possible have been the 79,90 with the bonus money that is the version that got a discount, now the version w/o the shark card is disponible again.
ps: sorry about this np deal, i am kind of a noob on reddit.
edited : thanks ihmhi
edit 2: as it's seems the xcom and gta 5 prices are just caused by a wrong interpretation by my part on the steamdb and a weird bug in gta case.
68222 is dev copy
68223 is consumer/purchase for a key. Possibly means b2p or requires recurring subscription. They either may not have included it with this update on Steam for testing, or it could be still through NCSoft on their site and kept off Steam. If I remember correctly, ESO allowed purchases through Steam BUT you needed to manage your subscription through the ESO Store.
68224 seems to be trial.
Edit: 68224 was unlinked from the app. (Still can be found here: [link]) (Thanks /u/MadBlue for the update!)
Nope, they raised the price of the base game to $80 and gave it a 25% discount bringing it back to $60, and they also happened to bundle dlc in with it.
Here's a price tracker for the game with a price graph at the bottom.
Games that are under $0.50 according to [link]
Despair $0.09, Escape Machines $0.14, The Albino Hunter $0.19, Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge $0.19, Caster $0.20, Why So Evil 2: Dystopia $0.24, Defy Gravity Extended $0.29, Pressured $0.29, each of the 4 Commandos games are $0.39, Eron $0.39, //N.P.P.D. RUSH//- The milk of Ultraviolet $0.39, Make It Indie! $0.49, The Curse of Nordic Cove $0.49
That's because some genius person at Valve did animations on sale elements with -webkit- prefix, which makes the sale page blank in Firefox and some other browsers. Same thing happened with GTA sale.
SteamDB to the rescue: [link]
I mean if that's the case then shouldn't GTA5 be sold at $32.50 since that's what it costs in Brazil? Why should it cost more in America if they can afford to sell it for cheaper in Brazil, Russia, Indonesia, etc. I mean, why should digital distribution factor in what country it's going to, right?
Yeah, I'm not inclined to agree with Scarper here.
It was removed right in the middle of the ruckus, just before the sale would kick off. [link]
And keep in mind they did this exact same thing last year too, but it didn't meet such a big shitstorm last summer.
My Steam Profile (from SteamDB)
Oh Dota2 :(
Everything in Steam is based on apps and subscriptions. Apps don't only include games, but also videos, DLCs, and configs (as in this case). "Beta Access to the New Steam Community" is a config, and no configs can be launched because they don't have the necessary entries to do that. Configs are usually used to grant access to certain Steam features (among other things), and to provide Steam Cloud storage (for example, "Steam Screenshots" grants you 2GB of cloud space to store your screenshots in). By owning a config through a subscription, you get access to the feature.
Have a look on Steam DB.
This entry appears in the list most likely due to the update where Valve added DLC lists to game detail pages in the Library view. I don't think they've managed to fix it completely yet.
Bullshit. Check the history for that package [link]
You can clearly see they created "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" on May 29, 2014. They also added Batman: Arkham Knight to the package on the same day. The "2 months ago" only shows that the package "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" was updated 2 months ago. It existed before that, and it included Arkham Knight before that. Please stop spreading false information.
For anyone thinking of using a VPN to bypass this, don't bother.
The uncensored keys are region locked and won't activate in Germany/Japan. Even if you're on a business trip or something, the game will become unplayable once you go back to those countries.
First part is correct.
Second part is not. The Ace Pack was supposed to be bundled with the rest of the summer pack. They unlisted it earlier today after the controversy came up, despite having scheduled it for release over a week ago.
I'm starting to think the ruckus got them to play it smart.
... nope My Steam Profile (from SteamDB)
The big things realistically expected from Valve are developer related. The Steambox controller, their VR initiative, and Source 2 engine are all things Valve could talk about.
Edit: And Source 2 just got announced. [link]
You can get it even if it's unavailable for your country.
The way i did it, I went to the SteamDB page and click on the install button. Go through all the steps until they say it's unavailable in your country. Then close steam(not quit it) and launch Steam Achievement Manager(make sure you're not running any game with VAC, TF2 being one of them or you'll get VAC-banned).
If done correctly, AVA should be in the list of games that you have. Select that and unlock the 1st One Down achievement. Quit SAM after you unlocked it and launch TF2. The Black Rose should in your inventory.
Source: Got it using the aforementioned method because I'm from Singapore(one of the unavailable countries)
i hope this comment helped you get that knife. ;)
Same as some Guns of Icarus gifts.
I actually just found another one in my own inventory:
According to SteamDB, that is Tabletop Simulator.
Yanlış kuruma yönlendirilmiş yalnız bu. Steam'deki oyun fiyatlarını belirlenmesinde Valve değil de, yapımcılar ve dağıtıcılar söz sahibi olur. Olay büyük ihtimalle şöyle oldu:
Steam TL'ye geçti, oyunun yapımcıları fiyatları düşük tuttu çünkü Türkiye'de kol gibi korsan var.
Aral fiyatları gördü ve götü tutuştu. Kendilerinin 150 liraya sattığı oyun Steam'de 75 liraydı çünkü.
Aral Ubisoft gibi yapımcılarla halihazırda iletişimdeydi önceki iş anlaşmaları sayesinde, fiyatların artırılmasını istedi, yapımcılar da kabul etti.
Steam'de bazı oyunlar türkiyede resmen dünyanın en pahalısı oldu. Sayılar yalan söylemiyor.
Suçlanması gereken Aral'dır bence. Türkiye'de yaşarken bir kere bile yeni çıkmış orijinal oyun almamıştım o manyakların fiyatları yüzünden. 250 liraya oyun mu satılır amk...
2 months is false. It's been worked for around a year.
There's still many QA builds up on steam (password protected, but names are still visible).
Many of these are dated such as:
I believe their intention was to indeed put those packs on sale, but the uprising here and in the forums (even in /r/gaming) made them think it was a bad idea. That's why they didn't actually put it for sale, to avoid further bad press.
Look at this: [link]
According to that link, they put the up-priced Ace Advanced pack in the Steam Summer Pack, which is now the one on sale. They they removed it right before it actually went on sale.
Not to mention, the thing is called "Steam Summer Sale Pack", and the up-priced pack was in there for a while, so I don't buy his excuse of "we didn't even consider it".
This it makes me a little annoyed that Scarper writes as if increasing the price before a sale is something offensive to them, as if the company would never do that (they've done it before, cough cough).
Not only were they apparently planning on doing exactly that, but more importantly, they've done it before. So, before the sale, the accusations of greed (not the "illegal" stuff) had plenty of merit to them.
Non-U.S. people (but possibly not EU people, since this Steam key may not work for those of us in these countries, if it's the NA key and not the WW key).
You might be interested to try this.
Using both credit/debit card and Paypal doesn't work for non-U.S. accounts, even if you use a U.S. address. Gift cards work though as there's nothing to verify the address then (assuming it doesn't force you to input financial details anyway).
GameStop sells $10 or upward gift cards. You can buy these. It doesn't need a U.S. address to buy these. Use your real address and it should work.
Alternatively, Amazon.com has <strong>GameStop Gift Cards</strong> with e-mail delivery. The only problem is that there's a minimum $25 amount. This needs a fake U.S. address.
You could then use the gift card during the check out process. Use a fake U.S. address.
Whenever you use a fake U.S. address, use a Florida one. No taxes. That $10 gift card is then two copies of Gat out of Hell, instead of one copy at $5.10 or something and $4.90 change.
Quasi-hijacking your top comment to state that the non-GFWL version is virtually confirmed.
Their SteamDB history just showed an update with two new versions (both private at the moment), one called 'NOG4WL Debug' and one called 'NOG4WL'. These versions were uploaded about seven hours after the addition of the achievements.
Also, I'd just like to point out something interesting; It appears that some people are already getting Steam achievements. This suggests that it's possible for Steamworks to hook into the GFWL calls to trigger an achievement (or that they patched in Steamworks functionality about a year ago or more, as that's the last time data for the game was updated).
Much harder to recommend sales to your friends/family or get you to buy the game as a gift, if by default they only show you what you didn't have that was on sale, so I can see where they are coming from.
I do wish that they would add the option to hide specials you already have in your library, the ability to sort by discount instead of just price and the ability to show more than 25 items per page. I end up largely using [link] instead of their own website or client as it has all of these features (if you sign-in with Steam, you can hilight or hide the games you own).
It would be nice to also be able to hilight games on your wishlight on steamdb, but it sounds like the API doesn't support that at this time.
No, it's because the game has reportedly poor performance even on very high end systems.
Even TB is having trouble with it and he has SLI titans [link]
So take your asinine assumptions and frankly shove them up your ass. I work a full time job and have no need to pirate games. That doesn't mean I'm going to waste money on games that punish the paying customer and basically treats them like thieves.
Here is my steam account calculated. Even if I bought every game in sale, which I didn't, there is $1100 worth of games in it.
Yes I'm such a thief /s.
Steam DB has much better formatting than the Steam page
Original Deus Ex is $1.39 but not listed
Well i guess there is stress testing happening on pc for gta v.. you can see there is now often like 7 people playing it on pc
One thing for sure, after their announcement of system requirements we will be able to finally pre order it on steam.
Just hope they wont gonna delay it again.
A Mobile App that informs you whenever there is an upcoming Dota2 Update from [link]
People can also comment patches and post patchnotes. Maybe with an Upvote/Downvote System to prevent trollposts.
Reminder, there's a live blog of the events here, hasn't updated for today, but today's events don't start until 10am PST.
From that link, here's Valve's schedule for today:
10:00am-6:00pm: GDC expo: Valve doing press demos of HTC Vive, showing off new Steam Controller/Machines etc.
10:00am-11:00am: glNext (now named Vulkan): The Future of High Performance Graphics (Presented by Valve)
>A technical preview of the Vulkan API, with advanced techniques and live demos of real-world applications running on Vulkan drivers and hardware.
Gabe Newell on Vulkan:
>Valve and the other Khronos members are working hard to ensure that this high-performance graphics interface is made available as widely as possible and we view it as a critical component of SteamOS and future Valve games. (source)
According to SteamDB, Valve will start doing their press demos of the HTC Vive (as well as the Steam controller and Steam Machines) at 10 am PST. That is a little less than 2½ hours from when I posted this comment.
It doesn't even prove that the game was added to Steam 2 months ago. Arkham Knight was added to the "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" package over a year ago. The "Iron Galaxy Studios Dev Comp" was updated 2 months ago, but that's completely irrelevant. You can check the history here [link]
Yes there are two packages. One for 32bit users and one for 64bit. 64bit isn't compatible with the 32bit systems hence the separate package.
Just a few dozen, and my Library is weak.
Just a clarification: GTA I and II are not sold on the store anymore but they were not completely removed from Steam (SteamDB links for GTA I and GTA II). People who bought the old complete pack are able to install and play the game just fine. But the new complete pack (sub IDs 28988 and 28987) doesn't contain GTA I and II.
I'm providing just one example to show that the OP is falsely claiming region locked games not being able to be played outside that particular region.
Thief is a good example. The SteamDB for US, Asia and Russia below.
[link] - ROW/US
[link] - Asia
[link] - Russia
Check all of them. The Asian ones are Purchase Restricted (region locked) but after activation, can be played ANYWHERE. The Russian one is Purchase Restricted and has the additional "onlyallowrunincountries" parameter.
I hope I have explained well.
Region lock =/= restriction on playing in most cases, and even when it does become an issue, it is almost always with the Russian versions of the game.
PS: That doesn't mean I am OK with Steam doing this. As long as the initial activation was done in the concerned region, we should be free to play our games anywhere.
Considering Cologne peaked at more than 400k, Katowice was at over 200k and DH was 135k, I'd say 500k is easy this time around. Consider that we're getting over 200k concurrently ingame every day, basically.
I'd say 1 million next year, same time is doable.
Just to add, Cologne had close to twice as many people ingame during the finals than there were viewers for DH finals.
TL;DR: Click [link], get hyped!
They added CELT libraries (vaudio_celt.dll/dylib) to the binary folder, see steamDB: Windows, Mac. There is no equivalent in the Linux depot yet.
He must be from Russia or Eastern Europe then, where they pay 50% less than the US price for games anyways.
Bigger publishers do this cause too many people get the games cheaper from Russia.
Look here, and see the "onlyallowrunincountries" parameter. [link]
I don't agree with this ruling in general, but the publishers want to protect themselves as well, so this ruling had to be created cause people get games on the cheap, some even activate them via Russian VPNs and they were enjoying life.
Doubtful. See the current GTAV SteamDB history.
Last major update to its history was 9 days ago (Preparation for the new Ill Gotten Gains content).
GTA V (Solo) mistakenly listed as on offer many seeing it for under £20.
Immediately pulled and a new bundle version is added (Grand Theft Auto V, Max Payne 3, and Tiger Shark Cash Card Store about 9 hours ago).
If these bundles were intended to have just been bundles they'd have released them long before now.
Theyre throwing many things into the mix, Bundles and Sale at the same time to obfuscate the actual discount and at the same time move the actual discount.
User pays to Rockstar the same amount as if they bought the Solo version, but gets SA and a bit of MP money. Looks like a good deal to them right?
Rockstar get increased sale traffic cause its "on sale" but their profit margin doesn't move.
Yes! You can count ~4 peaks for each 30 day period.
You can see by yourself with more details here: [link] (where I took the graph from)
Here you go.
This is the same page but in dollars, if you'd rather have that
Opening ports is necessary for both listen and dedicated. If others can join, your ports are probably opened. That shouldn't be the problem then.
Now, when running any kind of custom content, if there is anything someone joining doesn't have and you don't have a redirect set up, they will proceed to download from your server at 10kb/s. And that's fkn slow. Set up a redirect if you are running anything not vanilla.
It's also player's nature to not join a server with few players. That could be factor.
It's also possible you may get more joining when you set one up during peak hours, such as weekend evening.
Tl;dr: it's probably your lack of redirect coupled with mods.
Edit: here is a very easy way to set up a dedicated kf server:
Sign in, download, configure slightly, and easily run.
The toughest and crucial part is porting forward, but I believe you have to do it for listen servers anyway... It's definitely the easiest way I've found to set up a dedi server. Best wishes!
You only need to be in Russia to Activate the game.
Once activated, you can play it anywhere you want to.
If it was blocked to that region as far as playing, it would look like Skyrim's Page: [link]
Notice the "This item can only be run in" block
Also, with this particular title you can familyshare it just fine.
However, if you were to Family Share that Skyrim copy, you would need to be in russia to play it due to the "This item can only be run in..." block.
Well, Ever since December, I've been doing research on how sauropod has spent the KS money. Sauropods inner devs had open facebooks for awhile. Sharing a lot of information and living WAY out of their means for college kids developing a game with no jobs other than claiming they are game developers. Their studio is a really nice loft, way to expensive for a developing studio with NO INCOMING money and a dead early access title. Lets face it, Castle story is dead, check out these stats
On average, less than 50 people play this game a day. There just is no real reason to even poor money into this fail project of theirs. They know it, We know it, best embezzle the rest of the money.
It depends. If a game is not available for purchase from Steam that doesn't mean its subscription bears the PurchaseRestrictedCountries tag.
In the case of Dying Light, it could or could not work: The Northern American subscription blocks activation from Germany, the ROW subscription does not. It's hard to tell which subscription the specific keys would be for and that's why it's hard to say.
As for the Dead Island series - I think they don't permit activation from Germany in general.
There's no way around this, you need to be outside of Germany to redeem such keys (VPNs/proxies are against the Steam Subscriber Agreement and usage thereof can be punished by termination of your account - so don't do that). You can redeem keys like that while abroad however.
Gifting the games will work, so if you've got friends outside of Germany or want to make use of trade forums, that would be a possibility for obtaining the games.
Lastly, note that a few games (e.g. the uncut version of Wolfenstein The New Order) cannot be run from German IPs. Neither of the games you listed is affected by that, however - if the game is in your account you can play it from Germany.
It's 50$ the steam link + 50$ the controller
Source : [link]
>Steam Link will be available this November for $49.99, and available with a Steam Controller for an additional $49.99 in the US
Warning: I bought Chicken Little (for nostalgic reasons), but it doesn't show up in my Steam library. I checked SteamDB, and the game is listed as an "unknown app". So, as of now, you're not getting anything. I hope this gets fixed soon.
What's more interesting to me is that with yesterday's update they added a new branch called 'patchd_nodlc', which hopefully means a new patch is on its way. They've been updating their internal builds every week for over 2 months now (just check the previous link), might be wishful thinking but new costumes alone shouldn't require that many updates.
People on steamcommunity were also speculating a few days ago that some new stages were being added because of the much bigger file size, but you'd expect Capcom to hype things up a bit if that was the case so I'm not getting my hopes up in that regard.
Guess we gotta wait for the release date of the PS4 version...
There's hardly anyone playing it. Those numbers will not result in a stable playerbase for very long. And it will get cannibalized once more people start playing UT4 which is free to play.
Check out the depot items 3737 and 3738.
The game is going to one of the first GOG games to allow cross-multiplayer play between Steam and GOG users, that update would be it.
Nope it's not. Like, seriously, it is not. Don't just jump to conclusions. There hasn't been an update to the depot, that also means the binary is still the same, which in turn means it's still asking for worldwide lobbies.
This item is only purchasable in United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Panama, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Colombia, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Ecuador.

That's what I've been thinking. They haven't updated the Depot for 4 days (Source: [link]), and the size has been cut back down to normal... so I'm assuming they've finalized whatever changes they wanted to make.
I'd estimate either tomorrow, as you've said, or on the weekend (Perhaps as a weekend sale + Free weekend?).
This is the total value of all his games from SteamDB. $48,000 worth of games.
He spent $125 on a piece of software that he used for 1 minute.
Nope, that's what it's like all the time. Considering it's a multiplayer-only game, it's a really big deal how many people play it. The highest it's gotten in the past 7 days is 848 players.
Look at these graphs.
I'll just quote /u/PrototypeT800 who has the top comment in that thread.
"Bethesda did it with Wolfenstein: The New Order. The game was $45 yesterday, but now the base price is back to $60."
Truly the most blatant example and a shame to see Bethesda stooping to that level.
On a related note, looks like GTA V can be bought on its lonesome again - for full price.
Checking steamdb, this is the only thing that comes up, a game called March of War: Face Off. I'm not seeing how they got Half-Life 3 from this unless I'm being dumb.
let me fix that for you.
Keep in mind you're comparing an operating system that has had a monopoly over pcgaming for the past ~25 years.. to one that just started getting support 2 years ago.
There is a 6-pack option that you can see on SteamDB, but they may or may not put it up for purchase.
Extra copies: [link]
GrantPassesCount on the extra copies is 5, which means the parent sub is a 6-pack.
SteamDB says he owns 2597 games: [link]
Guess steam don't count games that no longer can be purchased through the store? Or is steam still counting DLC's as games?
Just want to point out that SteamDB extension has a Firefox version, and it adds a PCGW button on Steam store pages. It's also open source with Chrome/Firefox versions being the same codebase.
I'm willing to bet they're for new daily jobs.
Just looked on [link]
They're called slakt_#. I think that means butcher in Swedish. Butcher mod related I guess.
Sergey Migdalskiy's talk about "Physics for Game Programmers: Physics Optimization Strategies" should have started by now. Let's hope this talk is more talked about on Twitter than the previous one!
Please keep in mind that this is a developer conference, don't expect any announcements.
Looking at SteamDB, the game is region locked but not run locked, which means that if you use VPN (not recommended) or activate it in China, you should be fine. Im not 100% sure how this works with you having CN store, but not living in China - but thats how it works on other region locked games
For those wondering I believe this is the website Baj was talking about
and this is Coe's page
Valve employees all have access to Sub 61 (aka "Steam Master subscription") which until recently had every game released on Steam included in it. These games wouldn't show in their game count.
I believe that they changed it recently because employees who left the company got to keep that subscription and that made publishers and developers upset. Now it just includes all of the Valve games.
However, employees at Valve now have the ability to "purchase" any game on Steam for $0.00. They are instructed only to use this for games they will actually be playing, which is why you don't see Valve employees on Steam with every game on their account. This way, the publishers and developers are correctly compensated for Valve employee "purchases" and these "purchases" are correctly tallied into the publisher's reports. Employees get to keep these games in their account after they leave the company, but have to pay for their new games afterwards like everyone else.
>Will it just add the DLC's to the game, without taking up another library space?
Exactly that. The GOTY versions are just packages with the base game + DLC (see here: [link] & here [link])
There are a few exceptions to that stuff, like Batman Arkham City back when it had a non GOTY version and some others, but you don't worry about that here.
Yes it is?
Anno 1404: Gold: €3.74
EDIT: Apparently the sale is different in the US than the one in Europe
For anyone interested in what happened, look at [link]
Change 813828 the 64bit version of the game goes
>branches/win64/buildid: 403597 › 472618
Then Change 813864 (about an hour later) it goes back
> branches/win64/buildid: 472618 › 403597
So it looks like someone accidentally pushed the update too early and they noticed/fixed that in about an hour. OP is one of the lucky ones who got the update in that little "pre-release" window.
This website can tell you a few things about your steam library. For me:
Even considering that most of the games where bought on bundle/sales occasions, it's still depressing.
Let's face it. There will be never 100% of your Steam Library ported to Linux. But it isn't like you have nothing on Linux. At the moment there are 1077 Linux ports. If this not enough you can use wine. Wine is a compatibly Layer (not an Emulator) for Windows Application for Mac and Linux. It translates windows commands (like direct3d) for Linux/Mac so the OS can work with it. Programs like FL Studio 10, Clip Studio Paint or The Last Remnant working like they would under Windows. For now only directx9 is 100 % supported so it is not the holy grail.
So it is not so dark as same people saying ;)
But there is one important thing. AMD's OpenGL drivers suck. I have high hopes for Vulkan, but for now ... You can play with it but the performance is not that good.
Nvidia Cards are safe and working flawless.
If you curios than just test it. As average user, you don't want use the terminal and things should just work out of the box, so I recommended Ubuntu. You can test it in a VM or you burn it as a Live-CD. You can Install it besides Windows and choose at the boot which OS you want to use. Play with it and if you don't like it you can say "Fuck you" and remove it ;)
But like I said, only if you are curios. If you are happy with Windows just use it.
I'm struggling to find an official source. Sub 61 used to have all games, but it seems like all but Valve games were removed. [link]
Put it this way: Valve is a game distributor with their platform Steam. Their people need access to games for testing integration with steam at a minimum. It stands reason that there are at least some people that have access to all games.
If this is based off what I think it is, then it's slightly incorrect, which a lot of people I've spoken to over the past few days seem to believe too.
Originally I posted this comment in the Steamdb thread:
If you check the app itself (not just one subid like this info is basing it all on), here: [link]
You can see 68222 and 68223.
68222 is the dev/publisher license/version.
68223 is the consumer license. Lists it as single purchase. HOWEVER, this is what ESO did when they still had a subscription fee. You paid for it, then managed your subscription through ESO's store, not through Steam at all. Wildstar may do this, it may not.
68224, which this article bases this all off of, is listed as free on demand, meaning it's likely the trial copy for people to check out before possibly purchasing. It was initially on the app id (371920) for Wildstar, but later removed after a few hours for unknown reasons.
132 games x $40 + avg sales tax 9.6% + ps3 at launch + ps4 at launch + 3 yrs psplus = $6819 / 9 years= 757$ per year
my costs: 2004 pc dell xps desktop $600 + gateway with i5 2320 $460+ 83 games for $491 on steam([link]) + current pc build $636 : [link] 200$ 1080p monitor+ 30$ for mouse and keyboard + computer chair $70 + hdmi cable $5 + mouse pad $ 4 / 11 years = $226 per year
even with 3 different pc's in under 11 years im still spending less than half of what a console player would spend
This is what they intended for it to mean. There will be a royalty/licensing fee for developers (as explained here: [link] )
"Valve have not mentioned licensing/royalty costs yet."
