Im not gonna read anything because Im sure there mightve been ample hate thrown my way.
I just wanna apologize to the 41 CAGs who had to go through this scare, and the 40+ buyers from elsewhere.
I thought I was gonna have a heart attack hours ago when FakeKisser messaged me about the issue. My email was flooded when I got home.
THANK GOD its fixed.
That was enough stress to last a whole year. I think Im gonna take a long ass break from selling now and repent for my sins.

Nahhhh, no hate just frustration on the topic itself really and at 2K.

I was going to just message you when I saw you on Steam or CAG next, I didn't want to publically call attention to the issue in your thread, I knew it wasn't your fault and I didn't want anyone thinking otherwise. I was going to try to get with you about some sort of remedy if nothing happened about a potential fix, but I was going to wait and see.

You hadn't been on though, or had, but were then offline. I noticed you come online shortly after the whole thing seemed to blow over, I figured you thought it was safe to then. :P

For the record, while I was upset, it was never with you. It was region free when I got it from you and you had nothing to do with what happened. Crappy set of circumstances really.

Well, it looks like 2k has activated the BS "region lock after release" again.

I bought a copy off of Jake and have been playing it for quite a while. Now I update it today and can no longer play it. EFFING GREAT. They region locked the Civ V gift too.

Way to go 2K, you take the money for the sales and then make them useless. I am so pissed right now.

That is weird, I bought my copy from Jake as well and I can play it still. I launched it just now to make sure.

EDIT:

As I finish reading the rest of the thread I see it was fixed lol

Seems like Indie Game Stand is doing pretty good lately. The $1 level is including a Steam key lately, and there's a beat the average thing going on the latest one (for Really Big Sky) where you get another two games. I don't think they're Steam games, but the average is only $1.52 right now so...

Anyways, I grabbed it. It's worth a look; the game looks pretty cool.

Terraria - $2 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

Might be an issue with your speaker setup.

VOs in XCOM don't work over my speakers but work fine with headphones.

My speakers are old and have channels blown out, though, which probably explains it on my end.

Try using headphones, though, just to see if it works.

I still think MoH was at its best on the SP back w/ MOH:AA.
The last MOH (2010) was short and sweet - though, nothing amazing & spectacular.

Spec Ops: The Line - now there's a shooter w/ an excellent SP campaign (which was like 7-8 hours short) and a great story. Just finished that last night.


I remember playing Frontline (that's what I played on GC lol), Rising Sun too. I haven't played the last MoH, looks like a cross of BF3 basically, I still want to check it out tho.
& yeah Spec Ops is Spectacular. *zing* trying all the different scenarios was pretty fun.


IndieGameStand is dope, I like what they're doin'. It just sucks you have to have more than one account to buy more copies of the deal. Been through their CS (which is pretty casual to deal with)

& Hopefully 2K doesn't do this whole region thing again...

Also just noticed the thread tags. Lmfao at dramatic cags & wallet destroyer

The new deal is alright if you haven't been keeping up with indie bundles, but it's a rehash otherwise. It's been in an Indie Royale and an Indie Gala (which could've been had for $2 and was a better deal). I haven't bought a single game yet from IGS, the only new/non-rehashed deal they've had was Gnomoria.

Watch out everyone!

A lot of us went through the GOG deal and some of us trade people on CAG to recieve X-Com Enemy Unknown on Steam. Been playing it since launch, suddenly I'm locked out of my game due to a newly created region requirement.

I hope others aren't affected but I feel like I just wasted money on this.

Too bad to as it turns me off from doing trades and whatnot on here. I lose money on the deal? Not cool.

Steam support ticket submitted, I'll let ya'll know what I hear back.

I hope no one else is inconvenienced with this.

EDIT!!!!! Apparently, something changed at 10am EST. File lock got changed and I can play my game again!

Or Resident Evil 1. Ever try playing that on a PC with a keyboard? Horrifying. Also, I think there might also be monsters, but good luck getting your character that far into the game.

I had read that Steam never changes region restrictions on a particular product id, if they add a region lock they will issue it as a new product and take the old one off the store, which will remain region free for previous purchasers. I guess that's not true, as seen with this xcom fiasco? I read it in this russian key guide on Reddit.

Greenlight Bundle 2 is live

For $1 you get:

Pixel Blocked!
Omegalodon
Starlaxis Light Hunter

For $5 you get the above along with:

Call of Cthuhlu: The Wasted Land
Perpetuum (30 day trial lol)
Dawn of Fantasy
Oniken (this was also in Indie Royale)
General Conflict
and Awesomenauts Mean and Green DLC bundle which unlocks next week

I don't know if anyone cares, but today I sent off PMs to developers that had their games on Desura for the first Greenlight bundle. I asked for Desura keys, and got one for Syder Arcade within the first 5 mins after sending a PM. Might be worth a shot if you're at all interested in getting Desura keys. The greenlight bundle site tends to have painfully slow download speeds.

To my understanding everyone can still play it but the people that buy/early access are accessing a test with everything available.

I can never play Phantasmagoria too many times.

This is largely because every time I've played through it I've invited several friends over and gotten so staggeringly wasted I have no memory of the plot.

I find myself irritated, once again, by the pricing structure of a piece of DLC vs an entire pack.

Case in point: Sanctum

For $4.74 you can buy the game and all DLC in one bundle. This is aimed, presumably, at the new customer that wants to buy all-in.

For $3.99 you can buy Map Pack 2 (not coincidentally the only one I am lacking). This is aimed at the customer who already owns the game; the loyal customer who bought in early.

Why don't existing owners get an even better discount than newcomers? Developers - are you trying to train me not to buy your games until the inevitable bundle/deal comes along?

I was using my headphones. It was just any VO, I was afraid it had something to do with being RU. I ran the Steam check to verify the integrity of local files, it found one bad one, updated it, ran again, and all is well.

That stuff pisses me off to no end as well.
I'm in the exact same spot as you with the above. I really like Sanctum and would like to get the second Map Pack but they want to bend me over when they have already gotten more than what are currently asking for it for everything instead of giving me a break for actually supporting them.


Same thing happens time and time again for games, it really does make you angry. Or they will price the DLC at some stupid price but then bundle it with the game and it is dirt cheap (Saints Row The Third I'm looking at you specifically!)
