I wonder how many "a game on your wishlist is on sale" emails I will get at 1pm?


Thanks for reminding me. I meant to turn this off the other day when it was mentioned, but got distracted. Did it now.

In the reviews for Pint Size, someone said they called Amazon and they said that it is Paradox that decides whats in the packs.



That's true but Amazon can give input and make suggestions. The Pint Sized pack came along in the first place because some people bought an earlier less comprehensive pack that included a lot of the same games and the bigger Plethora (I think) pack and complained so Tony suggested it to Paradox as sort of a supplemental for those who already had the earlier pack.

You can only do this in the client, right? I'm out and won't be home again for hours. I'm guessing my box will be flooded. :P

Steam says I have 728 games. Anyone know how many total games are on Steam?


I thought, "Hot damn, that's a lot of games!" But then I checked Steam and it says I have 734. I don't think there's a true way to tell how many what with all the bundle keys and serials for games that have been removed. I've seen a user with over 6,000 games before.

I'm loading up stuff in my cart for a sale initiation glitch. Hoping some of these coupons that are still active will stack...

Mine says "318 Games" until you click on it then go to the "All Games" section and it says I have 187.

Yeah, total games differs greatly between games owned and DLC - the larger the library, the larger the spread. I have 1155 actual games and 1998 in total.

Yeah I've noticed this too. In my profile it says "Games (986)" but when I go to "All games" I have 728. I think the rest are because Steam identifies every user as "owning" all of the Free-To-Play games.

Ahh you're probably right. :)

Because of that difference, I briefly thought I had just passed the 300+ mark for games owned, but I actually only own 186. It's that damn Dungeon Defenders DLC! Oh and Magicka's. And with this sale, I'm hoping to artificially inflate my game count even further with some SR3 DLC :P

All versions of Magic: The Gathering with Foil Conversions and extra shit added 100+ "games" to my library.

The Mayan apocalypse is actually the beginning of the Steam sale. First, the servers blow, which begins a chain reaction across the entire networked world. Soon, we're all dead.

Yeah the Capcom stuff is mostly what I'm after this sale if any hits 75% off. Also after Towns, Doctor Who, and a few of the Lego games.

They're saving that for a Daily Deal 80% off the day after the sale ends.
