I have about $50 in steam funds that I would like to turn into cash. Any ideas on how to do this..?


I would buy it from you for a discount if you haven't sold it already.

On a related note, does anyone have an extra Steam 50% off coupon they want to sell or trade for? Skyrim is calling me, and having the coupon would be awesome.

Update: Went to the Steam forums and got inundated w/offers. If any of you would like an extra Skyrim/Bethesda coupon, lmk.

Anyone else have the Rayman Origins Demo show up in their Library and systray shortcut without having done anything?

Also, the entry has a "Play" button instead of an "Install" button, but nothing showing in the Downloads tab.

Clicking "Play" brings up:

Steam needs to convert the game content for "Rayman Origins Demo" to a new, more efficient format. This will require an Internet connection and a few minutes' time

I'm not signed up for any betas, and I hope this is not a new aggressive marketing tactic.

Got into the CSGO beta...feels sooooo much better than Source. I honestly think if they don't severely Fuck up, this game could be huge for competitive gaming.

Did anyone else notice that Sid Meier's Railroads! is no longer available on Steam? I purchased it a while back in one of the sales, but the link to the store page just goes to the Steam storefront:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/7600

The option to install it is still available in my library, fortunately.

More of EA's shenanigans? Or was that one published by Take 2?

Either way, I hate when that happens, but as long as you bought it, you got it.

That's happened with a bunch of games. Someone here mentioned a common reason for it but I forgets what (running out of keys? licenses?).

What bothered me recently is over the weekend when Valve had the Portal 2 thingie on sale for $0.68 for a day or so and then pulled it with a few days to go, and had it back up at full price right after the sale. Cranky.

I wish they would provide some sort of warning a week or two beforehand: "You have until Month, Day to purchase Game. After that date, the game will be removed from the Steam store."

In this case, I'm not affected since I already bought it, but if it had been a game in which I had interest but was waiting until later to buy, I'd be upset.

I'd check the Steam forum for that particular title. You could also Google the issue and see what you come up with.

______________

As far as games disappearing from Steam, agreed! I wanted to get Sims Medieval and the expansion. It had been on sale a few times, but I was waiting for a drop. For whatever reason, the expansion is no longer available on Steam. :( Sad. I think the game itself is, though.

Risen was on Steam, then disappeared, then came back, and I got a swinging deal on that one (although I forget the price). I go to Steam for all my gaming needs. If it's not on Steam, generally I won't play it at all. EA is making it hard for me, though, since they took Dragon Age 2 off, and I don't think Mass Effect 3 will ever be on Steam. Annoying. I'd really prefer to have nothing to do with Origin, but I might have no choice.

Brilliant. Any word? I'm sure plenty of people will keep doing these Torchlight groups. (Even with Diablo out.)


EDIT: Went ahead and started a thread for what it's worth.

Is there an active TF2 thread for gaming and trades? I can't seem to find it, either CAG search is borked or the thread got deleted.

Looks like an update to the client where if you check your Game List, it identifies on which computer you're logged into Steam, plus it now also lists the games' sizes, even if not installed. Cool beans, I guess?

Does anybody have an issue where non-steam linked games disappear from your library? It happens to all of mine regularly, they all vanish.

I'd heard about that, but I'd also head they'd fixed it. Guess not. It was/is one of the reasons I don't keep any non-Steam games in my Steam library unless I want friends to see that I'm currently playing it, like 40 people on my list who want us to know they're playing D3.

Does STEAM now show all games or just supported games? For example if I'm playing Tribes Ascend and I opened it through STEAM - will it show to others I am playing that game?

In the past it did not.

Yes, if you add a shortcut to a non-Steam game to your library, and then launch the game through Steam, it will show on your friends' Friends window what you're playing. You can even rename the shortcut to something smartarsed as some of my buddies do.

Also, you can take screenshots of non-Steam games and include them in your library for viewing and commenting by others.

Hey guys, I need a little advice. I just bought an MW3 code off of ebay and here were the instructions.

DO EXACTLY THIS INSTRUCTIONS IN ORDER TO ACTIVATE:

1. Connect to your steam account
2. Download- https://hotfile.com/.../USAIP.rar.html
3. Unrar, Run USAIP.pbk
4. Connect to "Ukraine PPTP" or "Ukraine L2TP ( User name & Password= demo )
5. In Steam click- "Games", "Activate a Product on Steam".

IMPORTANT-
After you finish, open once again the VPN program, and click "Hang up".

Your key is-



Enjoy and Please leave Feedback!


Did I buy a legit product? I haven't tried the instructions yet. When I used the product code on steam, it said the code wasn't available in my country (I'm USA). I'm a little weary of using this code and following the steps.

___________

I need a new signature.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeek.

It might work if you did the steps, but it sounds like it might also violate your Steam terms of service. I don't know about you, but losing access to my Steam account would be a total nightmare for me. I hope you didn't pay a lot. I wouldn't risk it, personally.

Can't you play a game where you don't go around shooting people anyway, you nut! :) (Just joking.)
