Hi,

1. This is really good.

2. Do you have a Tip Jar somewhere?

3. Might be just me, but a couple of things I've noticed don't seem quite right.

On the main page "NEW RELEASES and TOP SELLERS" listings, the first 10 items highlight if I own/wishlist them, but the subsequent pages/games don't.

The same thing happens on the "Featured partners --> Game Publisher Catalogs --> Game listing pages".

I own Fallout 3, and it never shows up highlighed on any list.

4. This is really good. Thanks for creating it.


1. Thanks!

2. There is a "Donate" tab in the extension options. :)

3. Anything that Steam loads via script (usually done with their "in place scrolling") doesn't kick off the extension. I've been looking into it but so far haven't come up with a solid way of detecting / fixing it yet. Working on it though! Also with Fallout 3, do you own the GOTY edition? There are two Steam entries for Fallout 3

http://store.steampo....com/app/22300/

and

http://store.steampo....com/app/22370/

It's possible, neigh likely, that you own one and not the other. Whichever one you own should highlight correctly as owned. For whatever reason, the people on Steam who own the GoTY edition don't automatically own the regular edition or it's DLC. This isn't really something my extension can fix.

4. Thanks and you're welcome! :)

I just emailed you a Amazon steam code for The Walking Dead. Let me know if it arrives ok. It's a great game. I hope you enjoy it.

Deal question!

I watched the trailer for The Cave and I've talked myself into wanting it.

I see that it's £7.99 at GMG if I use the 20% off coupon, but buying through Steam gives three - THREE - "exclusive" TF2 items. This sorta swings it for me.

So here's the question: if I buy at GMG will I or won't I get the items? (If you are really asking whether or not I'm willing to pay the price of a pint to get three pieces of digital clothing then the item is YES)

If it's not listed on GMG then most of the time not. There's been an exception once or twice I think, but a lot of cases where you simply didn't get it. Basically the only thing you're guaranteed to get, are the bonuses listed on the GMG page.

Thanks for the reply :) I'm still pretty new to GMG and pre-orders in general but The Cave has really caught my eye.

Will sleep on it.

On TWD

Im hating the limited camera angle, clunky movement and loss of control. But I guess thats what it is. Story is getting better. I'd never choose it as GOTY though


True. The story is top notch but the controls and limited camera angles can get tiresome. I especially hated the part
Spoiler


But I like it a lot. Especially since I can just play it inbetween study hours for a bit as a "reward" :P it saves quite regularly so I'm not worried I have to redo a huge chunk if I decide to quit.

Be aware that GMG don't do pre-orders - they do pre-purchases. Slightly different. ;)

My GotY for 2012 is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. Now if only they'd bundle the DLC...


Other than Virtue's Last Reward, Theatrhythm was both my biggest surprise and favorite game to play on the go (well, not sure if you count Ghost Trick on iOS). I think I sank over 40 hours into it as well, unlocking all the characters and leveling them up in such a way that I could kill bosses 4-5 times in one song in the early-mid levels of Chaos Shrine :)

I just wish that the Chaos Shrine could play ALL songs instead of just the same 12 or so that they recycle. That doesn't make ANY sense to me! Even when I purchased DLC, I'd have to just go to the boring single song modes to play them :( What's the point of the RPG aspect if you can only really utilize it for a small fraction of your total songs?

Overall though, great game and great surprise.

As a general rule, TF2 items are exclusive to Steam pre-orders. It's their incentive to order off their site.

GMG saves you money; Steam gives you hats.

I just realised something. On steamgifts.com I am able to enter gifts that are already in my list of games. But only the ones that I have been activated by keys or bundles, not the ones that I bought directly through the steam store.

Did anyone know that already? Or am I now unraveling something completely obvious? If so, why is this?

I've always found it kind of a bummer that you can't enter on games you already have. Although I can understand the reasons why, sometimes there are games I'd like to win to give to a friend because I know he/she would want it.

The difference, as I see it, is £2. The game is worth £7.99 so I'm basically paying two quid for a hat premium.

To buy that premium direct from the Hat Store would probably cost me in the region of £6-7. So by buying at full price, from Steam, I'm actually saving money. It's a 50% profit based on Net Asset Value. Bargain!

...

And you wonder how bankers shafted the economy. :lol:

Steamgifts syncs your account once a week manually, or you can sync it manually. Any games added since your last sync aren't noticed as being on your account.

I've always found it kind of a bummer that you can't enter on games you already have. Although I can understand the reasons why, sometimes there are games I'd like to win to give to a friend because I know he/she would want it.

Have your friend join? The requirements are still extremely low.

Thanks for clarifying! Yeah of course my friends could join themselves :P but that's kinda beside my point :D there's alot out there I don't want/need myself but someone else might like. But meh, it would severely limit everyone's chances anyways since every game will have yet even more entries.

Just get prepared for a bunch of random Russians to IM you bugging you to trade your hat. I'm serious.

When I had the Tropico 4 pre-order hat I used to always get Russians out of the blue asking to trade for it until one day I caved and traded it for From Dust.

Now they leave me alone, but if I get another in demand hat again? Russians.

The one little minx who used to hit me up for Trine 2 will have to live with disappointment since I traded it to a friend for Unstoppable Gorg. He got the better end of that trade by any measure but, after Trine 2 sat for a year in my inventory, I figured I'd do him the Yuletide solid.

Steamgifts requires you to activate it yourself. Giving away keys would be a good way to get yourself banned.
