I'm surprised at the lack of entrants for the contest. :-(

I wanted to participate, but I had no clue what titles made sense as guesses. O:)

Well the most common guess was probably shadowrun as that seems like the one most people feared would be bundled.

I just looked at SteamDB for updated titles. Apparently they're just updating everything with region locks.

I just got my first Foil card over the weekend myself.  I think I win though, right?

Right?

 

Interesting, my first foil was also for McPixel, but it was a different card. Still sold for more than I paid for the entire bundle, so a win.

Tsk tsk, Steam. You're going to completely dismantle the entire Russian economy with this move.

 

In all seriousness, will this retroactively impact games already added to a library? Kinda figured it was just a matter of time before Steam did something, so I haven't bought too many games from other regions, but I do have a few.

Thanks Madjoki. Does this mean we have till 25th to play or do we need to reedem the key before that date?

Considering the page says it's for alpha/beta access, I'd assume you have until the 25th to play before the beta is removed.

It's barely an alpha/beta. It will take you fifteen minutes to complete, provided you get up and make a cup of tea in the middle of playing.

 

I didn't receive any notification when they removed an exploited CIM2 key (that I won on SteamGifts) from my account.

Yeah, I've had plenty of betas expire and never received a message like that. The developers must have revoked the betas on Madjoki's game in an unusual way.

As much as I've learned to love regional prices, I've never understood why devs don't do it with all games.

 

I mean, yes, I get it, we're a digital world and it's conceivable someone buying a game in one region might find themselves on travel or moving elsewhere and should have access to their games.  

 

But if they are going to insist on giving other regions cheaper pricing for whatever reasons, why not region lock the games in those cheaper priced regions and allow games purchased in more expensive/full price regions be region free?

Wishlisting them is fine, by the time you buy it it could be out of EA.

So, I contacted SEGA Support this weekend about getting my Retail boxed copies of Dawn of War 1: Gold Edition + my digital copy of Dawn of War: Dark Crusade (from GameStop PC App) all onto Steam.

 

Since yes - we can now do this a/ Any of the DoW1 games + expansions from Retail + digital, if you didn't know:

See this post on Steam -> http://steamcommunit...30076105985507/

 

So, Sega's Support asked for pictures (of retail box + game keys) and screens proving I owned Dawn of War 1: GOTY retail box & Dawn of War 1: Dark Crusade digitally - and any receipts.

I didn't give receipts - but I provided them w/ pictures they asked for of all the other stuff. :D

 

BOOM!

They provided me a key for DoW1: Platinum onto Steam (DoW1: GoTY + Winter Assault + Dark Crusade).

 

Fast and efficient support from SEGA.

My Launch edition Razer Death Adder is starting to go bad.
Anyone have a new darling mouse?
MysterD, you have a G500, do you not?

Tom's chart results:

Spoiler


edit: My 2 top choices are:
Corsair Vengeance M65
Razer DeathAdder

No, not 500.

I have a G600.

Might be hard to see since it's a small pic here, but that's the G600 box I'm holding in my avatar. ;)

 

Yeah - it took a bit of time to get used to the 12 buttons on the side; and to get used to the size of the mouse (it's quite a bit bigger than the mouse I normally use - a standard Microsoft mouse w/ a mouse-wheel/button in the middle). It has a learning curve, for sure.

 

But, I totally love this G500 G600 mouse.

 

And the software that comes w/ the mouse (you can get that off the Logitech WebSite) is really nice. You can program what buttons to do what commands you want for EACH and EVERY game, if you like. If game ain't in the list already - just add the EXE; and you're good to go to set up the controls. It's pretty damn sweet.

A lot of items get updated every day, you gotta check the changelogs.

 

On that note, the Borderlands 1 beta just got another update, and Mortal Kombat Komplete seems to have a beta in the works too.

When I tried to get Batman: AA + AC onto Steam, it took days for WB to get back to me.

Sega - they contacted me yesterday and today.

Much quicker.

To be fair, the AA/AC thing happened for everyone almost all at once, unlike a single user asking for a key. It did take WB an irritatingly long time to sort it all out though.
