Sim City Origin for 60$. Appalling. Online DRM. No thank you.
But Heart of Swarm is the same too.

I say I loathe online DRM, Ubisoft Activision EA, yet I have hundreds of games on steam I don't even really own and I keep buying more. They kinda have online DRM. Certainly not DRM free.
Thats odd.

Awesome @ Halo series showing up in Steam registry.
Can we get Fable 2 + Gears of War 2 & 3 also in there too, please? ;)

Interesting @ Fez listed in there, as well.

I would like to see the Halo games on Steam. Though, I'm not a huge fan of the franchise.

We need Shadow Complex on Steam. Come on Gaben get it done!!!!!

Yeah, I wasn't super-big on Halo 1 myself - namely b/c I didn't like the 2nd half of the game, after The Flood w/ its repetitive and recycled-looking areas.

The Flood was an interesting surprise but the repetitiveness was wearing thin.

I will say this - I loved Halo 1's 1st half - that was up UNTIL The Flood hit.

Whoa, that's a ton of awesome surprises in one post - Fez is the big entry for me; I cannot wait to secure a Steam version.

As for some of the other entries (Such as Shadow Warrior and La Mulana.), those previously-GOG-exclusive titles make sense - I believe some CAG's have mentioned GOG having exclusivity deals for a certain amount of time, in the past. (I believe it was mentioned when the old Tomb Raider titles were starting to show up in the Steam registry.)

Anyway, I'll be thrilled when the Product Pages go live. Admittedly, if these entries had appeared closer to April, I'd be a bit more skeptical.

I think maybe it's an old Victoria's Secret magazine insert rendered in ASCII, hence the sequels.

La Mulana got greenlit nearly a month ago, so that one shouldn't be shocking in the least.

This only serves to remind me of what a disgustingly large number of games I have. I had to check in a panic I had Cryostasis because I couldn't remember if I'd gotten it or not. And then found out I also owned UFO: Afterlight, which I didn't even realize was a thing that existed.

This makes me think I (and perhaps this thread) needs to participate in "Four in February." You pick 4 games, either started or not, and create an unbreakable vow to the ancient gods promise to finish them before March.


I remembered I had Cryostasis but I didn't think I had UFO and was freaking out. Your post made me think to actually check my library... it was there. I need to do this four game thing stat.

Did anyone get their keys yet for La Mulana or Leisure Suit Larry from the Groupees bundle? Waiting on them.

Fez was announced as being ported to other systems like a month ago. I think it was pretty clear it was at least coming to PC then.

There is also a 99.9% chance it will be in a Humble Bundle since all the games featured in and Indie Game the Movie itself was in a Humble Bundle. It will be how long can you wait to play it :lol:.

A Bunch of Surprise Games in the Steam Registry

Guys, if these entries are legit and they're not being added for some other, heretofore unknown purpose, then HOLY SHIT.


Wasn't there a super Sega bundle for January 2013 that showed up in the registry a few weeks back? It was missing several currently available Sega games, but it it had almost all of the Sega games that have been removed from the steam store. I don't recall ever seeing that bundle making an appearance during the month of January. So I'm just gonna assume that an appearance in the steam registry is no longer a guarantee (or near guarantee) that a game is coming to steam.

It has probably come to Gabe's attention that people watch the registry, so he's decided to have a few laughs.

No, the Sega bundle was people reading too much into things, and was never going to be live. It was more than likely an employee thing. Sega would not have randomly regained the rights to sell a bunch of licensed stuff they no longer owned the license too.

A lot of the stuff on that list does make sense. Like, a confirmed Revelations port is happening, right? King of Fighters games are a little unexpected, but it could happen I suppose.

It's about damn time for Halo 3 to come to PC... maybe.

The ones that are pretty much going to happen are:

La Mulana (Greenlit)
Octodad (greenlit)
Duke Nukem (old sub entry, recent GOG release)
Shadow Warrior (same as Duke, same publisher)
Fez (ports already announced, though specifics never given)
Yogventures (greenlit)
The Witness (high profile new indie game, no reason to think it wouldn't be on Steam)
Resident Evil Revelations (port announced)
Quantum Conundrum 2 (not announced, but again no reason to think this wouldn't be on Steam)

The Leisure Suit Larry in the Groupees bundle was the VGA remake back in the 90's. Don't think they have plans to put that one on Steam. The one that was greenlit was the remake of that remake.
