The top right probably says " 's account " and thus isn't pulling all of the information it should be. Steam has been buckling for a couple hours now and with the turn of the deal only made things worse.


Yeah I noticed this too when I got a lot of PMs and emails from people asking why Enhanced Steam wasn't working.

I'm also sad to see Magicka as the weekend deal, but I honestly wasn't expecting much. I bet they'll sell quite a few, despite it being in the current Indie Gala.

I really want Anno just not at that price. Damn the CAG in me.

Yeah, I almost bought it when Amazon had it for $20 plus the $5 Ubi coupon but just forgot to do it. I can't justify $20 for it... I could barely justify $15.

Magicka's Jolnirs Workshop is free, for a limited time I think.

I bet that this one is going to end up in the IndieGala bundle as well...

What happened last night?


No idea. I don't usually bother looking things up as to why for most things. All I remember is that it was spotty last night for an hour or two. Tried playing Borderlands 2 with some friends and Steam kept going in and out.

I will say this, the free weekend to go along with 75% off Magicka is not as common, so that is a plus. Outside of that, it's a little annoying sometimes to see so many Steam sales overlap with bundles. I mean, I know both Steam and the publishers have enough awareness to know a game is currently running in a bundle, so I don't know why they insist on putting it as a daily/weekend/etc. during that time.

Maybe their math backs it up though since bundles will always be more expensive (outside of IG HH) than any individual game.


My theory is on games like this they are doing it to sell DLC. They know everyone probably just got it from the bundle and everyone's wallets are hurting a bit from the holidays so hey why not put this on sale since a bunch of people just got it and see if we can get those people with hurting wallets do smaller transactions for DLC.

Yup $9.99 is where I would think about it but even then I might wait for $7.49

Anyone have an opinion on Governor of Poker?


My opinion is that it was one of the stupidest purchases that I've ever made on steam. I don't even know how to play Poker, for Christ's sake, and I spent $10 on the stupid game. Add to that, the fact that less than 2 hours after I bought Governor of Poker, I managed to snag Sleeping Dogs and most of it's DLC for less than I paid for GoP. And now having it show up less than 2 weeks later for half of what I paid for it...

Dumb.

Sigh. Magicka again.

Also, the Steam client has been really annoying me lately. It keeps freezing and/or signing me on/off multiple times in rapid succession. At first I thought that was because of my internet, but now I'm pretty sure I can blame Steam itself.

Stop it, Steam. Or I'll have to send you to your room with no dinner!

I've been playing Governor of Poker for the last 20 minutes and... it's alright, actually.

There's some kind of storyline to it, you'll have to "work your way up the ranks" and so on in order to take over the town, but hey it's poker. If you have zero interest in poker it's probably not for you. If you want to learn how to play but don't have a clue where to start, this might be a good call (if you don't have Poker Night At The Inventory).

There's a few nice visual prompts and it walks you through the hands quite easily, it's certainly not the worst game I've played this year.

I note that there's a "vanilla" version which is only £1.99, it lacks a few extra towns/characters etc. though.

So, in your opinion is Poker Night better then Governor of Poker? I can play poker ok & the storyline to it sounds neat.

Looks like the Indie Gala Magicka bundle added "Home". On a side note, Steam has been acting really weird and slow for this morning, so it took me a while to realize I already owned it :D


Ahww what? That game is totally worthless :( I bought it last sale and it was Bo-o-o-o-o-ring.

Poker Night is basically just a series of games. You play a game, you might get a chance to get an achievement or win a TF2 item from an opponent, but that's kinda it. It's got more character to it, but in terms of depth there's not much there.

There ain't much depth to Governor either, from what little I've seen, but at least there's a point to it. And it involves hats.

Just played an hour of the Governor of Poker 2 demo. It's not bad, has some interesting mechanics such as showing your cards after a bluff, opponent AI going "on tilt." Cutesy little in-game tracking achievements, some odd town management real estate stuff...you can buy town buildings with your winnings and then use them as chips in the poker games if you run short on cash.

And there are hat stores.

Probably will convince myself to buy this before the night is over.

At a certain point they just need to give Magicka away for free and stop selling it so it doesn't take up a perfectly good sale slot.

I will provide a counterpoint and say that I thought home was a delightfully eerie narrative experience. It's a short adventure game with various choices you can make that alter what's actually happening in the story, like a choose your own adventure novel. It's creepy and sticks with you for awhile after finishing it.

It's also only two hours long, tops, and obviously is not for everybody.
