We're sorry, we're out of keys for the Bethesda New Year's Bundle wait two weeks never to get the rest of your keys.

Have a Happy New Year.


When did you start working at Gamersgate? :P

Hm. Not showing up for me, I assume it should be obvious?

Doom 1 and 2 are classics and everyone should own them, and the collection of just those two is only 3.74.



I'd be all over the Doom classic pack if I could get it for that price, but as an Australian I'm expected to pay $4.99 for it. =; Nope, no money for you!

I'm still debating whether I can be bothered trying to trade for it with someone from the US or UK, but I don't want to end up with a dodgy Russian copy where I'd be worried it would get revoked for the next 12 months.

The Doom 3 pack is the same price here as the US, but I don't want to buy that either if I can't get the classic pack.

Yeah, it should look like this:

If you've got Paypal or Amazon GCs I'm sure there's plenty of people (myself included) who would help you with regional pricing.

Edit:

No dice, this is all I'm getting with 0.2:

OK checking into it now. Looks like Greasemonkey allows remote jQuery calls, and Chrome extensions don't. So much for taking shortcuts!

Thanks for that Genocidal, I'll send you a pm :)

When I first joined CAG the Steam Group Buy and Gifting thread was just a friendly place for group buys and helping out with regional restrictions and pricing.

It's changed a lot since the introduction of gift trading and the proliferation of steam keys... it's serious business now!

BTW if anyone wants Mirror's Edge for $2.50 (AU price) let me know.

Could someone talk me out of buying these games in the next, say, 10 minutes?

Far Cry 1, Fable 1, Dues Ex 1, Thief 1, Doom Classic Complete, and Doom 3 (non-BFG edition).

Thanks.

Do not buy.

Also, not to look a gift horse in the mouth or anything, but it doesn't mark games I bought elsewhere but redeemed on Steam as owned - is that something that's possible? :D

For every one of those games you buy, God kills a kitten.
Please think of the kittens.

That's weird - if you click on the game in Steam, do you get the "regular" green banner that says "You already own... (whatever)"?

God is a kitten-killing bastich whether I buy the games or not, but thank you for trying.

And what have kittens done for ME lately?

Just double-checked that, and yes, I get that once I click onto the actual game's page. If it helps you any, the game I'm testing this on is Deus Ex - I bought the key from GMG last year & redeemed on Steam.

Looking at the code, I don't think it has anything to do with buying on a separate site and redeeming on Steam. There have been a few instances in my testing where M (and sometimes T) rated games don't show up, presumably because the code that checks if you own the game is hitting the "please enter your birthday" validation page.

I'm sure I'll be able to track down the bug and (hopefully) get it updated soon though, stay tuned!

In all seriousness, no one has anything bad to say about those titles? 75% off money well spent?

Yup, you're right, there's definitely something more to it - looked further and your green banner is showing on my Skyrim, which I also bought from GMG.

Thanks btw, very cool plugin - stuff like this makes me wish I had kept pursuing coding.

Alright if you want the shock and horror of having a tally of all the $$$ you have ever spent on Steam, install (or update) my Chrome extension.

If you don't already have it installed it can be found here:

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! :)

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

Working now, thanks! Total wasn't nearly as bad as I'd expected considering game count and age of account. I guess it doesn't count non-Steam purchases but I don't think that's a large chunk for me.

Good to hear it's working! Yeah, Steam calculates the value of anything not purchased on Steam as "Free" (aka +0) so it doesn't get added. Also, it will tally total purchases, so this will include items purchased for someone else as a gift.

I wonder if Motoki will be brave enough to look...

I'd wait to buy Thief in the pack whenever it goes on sale for 75% off, no use just buying the first. Same with Deus Ex, obviously if you already own prior games in said series then ignore this :P

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.

I have the recent Deus Ex from an Amazon pack and Thief 2 from a cheap GMG deal. Otherwise, that is totally legit advice.
