Maybe you can pass a birth date in as a parameter? It doesn't seem to matter what it is as long as the calculated age is 18 or over I believe. Of course you probably know all of this so I will shut up now. In a minute. Nothing to do with your code but I never realized that Steam marks the Demo listing as owned for any full game I own whether I downloaded the demo or not.


The code is just doing a mass HTTP GET request for all of the links on the page that lead to steampowered.com/app/ or steampowered.com/sub/ which seems to randomly hit a wall. Unfortunately, it's not smart enough to know "if it asks for your age, enter 1/1/1900". I just tell it "go get this file, and look for the green banner". So if it gets something other than what it expects, it will just report back "nope, I didn't see the green banner so you must not own this".

Also, Steam uses the same link for the full version and the demo of games. So with this same logic, all of the demos in the search will show a green banner if you own the full game. :)

Of all those, I could make a case for not buying Far Cry, but that's it.


I was on the fence about that one the most, thanks.

Anyone who uses my Chrome extension and likes it should leave me a good review on the Chrome Web Store page - it'll help more people find it and be confident it won't steal their Steam account or anything! :)


Installing it now...

Hey, jshackles.. Is your plugin open source?


Yeah I'll probably release it as such once it gets cleaned up some. Right now it's a mess (and started out as a Greasemonkey script) which I debated posting at all for fear of code nazis. :D

If you like Sonic games then hell yes! It's one of SEGA's best in years. It's visually polished, the gameplay is great, and there's loads of content.

EDIT: Never mind. I was expecting more, especially since I have over 600 games. I'm a cheap bastard.

It doesn't count the games you've bought off of Amazon or other sites. 90% of my purchases are made that way, so I expected my total to be higher.

Well yeah, of course, but I didn't really get into buying things on Amazon digitally until this holiday season. I've only made a few purchases on other random sites, but then there's CAG transactions. I'd say the majority of my Steam library comes from CAG and the few winter sales I've been a part of.

Excellent choice. Your avatar is probably my favorite at the moment. And it's not all that obviously Christmas-y.

As for me, I'll wait for the Steam Holiday sale to end, and then I'll switch back.

Lies! But, Happy New Year!

Nice script j-shak. Wish I could use it in the client, but I will definitely get some use out of it. To be more depressing folks, don't forget that that total doesn't reflect purchases outside of Steam itself (bundles, Amazon, GMG). Does it include gifts purchased?

Borderlands 2 Golden Key Code: K353J-Z5JC5-KXJBB-TBTJB-95BWZ (gives 2)

Thanks! Were there three different codes tonight? I found two on this thread, but the IGN code site is only showing one...

I remember when HAWX 2 Deluxe; Driver: San Fran Deluxe; and Silent Hunter 5 were $1 on Uplay!

Amen. :D

Has The Secret World been a daily or flash sale yet?

Guaranteed it will be a daily tomorrow... right after all the bonuses won't be given.

I've mostly been picking a few things here and there lately. Been waiting for Black Ops 2 to go deeper off than 17% to get the digital deluxe edition. I'm guessing that at this rate it won't go deeper than that till the next sale. Either way, I have enough of a backlog lol

When I was in High School a friend got a 100% on a D.A.R.E. test and they gave him a D.A.R.E. duffel bag. Two years later, a drug dealer that was a friend of ours at the time asked to borrow something to transport 2kg of cocaine in and he handed over his D.A.R.E. bag. He brought it back to him with an oz of weed in it as a thank you.

Well the $5 editor's choice credits are now live on Amazon. Hotline Miami is back up to $7.50 but $2.50 seems a good price for me. Also worth noting Dark Souls: Prepare to Die is sitting at $18 putting it at $13 after credit which is the cheapest I think I've seen it unless it hit $12.50 somewhere when I wasn't paying attention since I had already bit at $15.

Same here, although I'm just looking for the normal edition though unless the DD magically hits $50ish.

Probably will be 20-25% off on one of the last dailies.
