We shouldn't be so hard on the @hackedbros. I do that "Sign In Through Steam" junk so much now I don't even think about it anymore, though I should. This was a pretty clever ruse, after so many random mystery game sales, a free one doesn't sound far fetched. If it wasn't for the fact I stopped caring about the +1 and I do all my game related communicating through Discord I might have been duped myself.

Someone dropping an obvious referral link through Steam chat was a bit farfetched. Most of the people on my Steam friends list aren't crappy like that.

The authenticator API is?

Scroll down to "Steam OpenID provider" https://steamcommunity.com/dev

I can agree with this...  Truth be told I'm a bit surprised that logging into a website can bypass 2 part authentication.  Lucky for me when I see "free games" I just assume its going to be such trash that I can be my extremely lazy self and just ignore it.

 

I did not pass up the Steam sale...  Truth be told I had a a number of choices in how I got my 30 spent.  Witcher 3 GoTY with its new sale price was a given, but I debated a few other things (including For Honor DLC, Assassin Creed season pass for Syndicate, or the bundle of cheap Assassin Creed games that I knew I had one of but the bundle of three was cheaper, or nearly cheaper, than just getting the two I needed, also debated some DLC for a hunting game that fascinates me but I never break out in play...)  Finally, I settled on the latest all of Steep bundle.  (I've enjoyed it so far but will likely back burner it as a play Spider-Man.

 

All in all, I like how this sale was handled and hope we see more voucher sales in the future...  Or even Steam competing with websites on preorder prices.

 

The Division 2 Beta; I liked the majority of what I saw.  The Outcast group is unnerving.  I know we didn't see the whole area but these guys just seem to spawn and attack you at random.  Me and one buddy were in the DZ late last night and had it all to ourselves and we had just cleared a landmark and where looking at our loot.  (If you didn't play the beta most loot in the DZ isn't contaminated and doesn't need to be extracted.)  Anyhow, all of a sudden a few guys are buy my friend and say, "Hi Agent!" and my friend goes down!  (I honestly thought it was other players for like ten seconds or so before I realized it was just NPC.)  Just so crazy... 

 

The End Game mission they gave us a chance to play I thought it was pretty good.  I tried it by myself and got beat down pretty quickly but a second attempt with weapons I liked better and a teammate made it better.  I sort of worry about solo play with the less ways to heal myself but I saw an gear manufacture set that restored armor on kill so it might be the ticket.  I think the "Health on kill" days are a thing of the past.  Its all about keeping armor up. 

 

Anyhow, really excited for the release of the game.  I still feel the game solves more issues from Div 1 than it create.

I bought 2x copies of Portal Knights from the Steam sale.  My child is at that age now and on one hand it is nice that I can co-op, on the other, now I have to play these types of games.

Yeah, I didn't have a ton of trouble soloing until level 7 but I didn't have a chance to check out the end game content.  Not a huge fan of the "healing" but I'm getting by.  I'll be the first to admit that the 4,700sq ft Glorious Green Circle of Healing And Status Immunity was cheese but there's got to be a point between that and Derpy Single Target Armor Drone.  I suppose this might give Support style players more to do, with "more" being "Micromanage your drone" versus "Shoot your ineffective gun with 2,900 Firearms skill" or "Fire flashbangs every three seconds".  I'll refrain from forming a real opinion until I'm there, though since I don't actually know what endgame healing/support looks like.

We really don't know... Even at end game so many skills were locked out and the agents really weren't built well... and gearing them up would have been rough considering the limited space they let you roam.

In general getting surprised in Div 2 is far more dangerous and I think most people will get downed more cause of it... but I'm not sure that's really a bad think.

I don't see where that allows any third party to incorporate steam's mobile authenticator on their own site. All the logging in and authenticating is on Steam's end.

Jeez, they haven't even shut my account down yet? I sent a ticket on it yesterday. I didn't expect them to get back to me quickly but I did kinda think they would shut that down pretty quick.

So with all you people getting hacked, here's a tip that will save you every time.

 

If you ever get a steam login page asking for your password anywhere, go to store.steampowered.com in the same browser and log in there instead.  If you're already logged in, it's fake.

Haul:
 
Demon Peak - 90%, $0.49
MegaRace 3 - 84%, $0.49 (in bundle)
Scanner Sombre - 93%, $0.44 (in bundle)
The Fall - 90%, $0.99
The Witcher Adventure Game - 85%, $1.49
 
 

Looks like a bunch of us noticed Keepsake in the sale.

 

Darn, I have that on my wishlist but somehow missed it. The store page still shows 83% off ($0.50) and even has the discount in cart, but at the final checkout page it goes up to $2.99.

 

Keepsake's price has dropped rapidly in the last year, so I hope that doesn't mean it's going to be removed from the store soon.

Not quite. You might also need to check if you're logged in on steamcommunity.com.

 

or just don't click links and then give out account info

Not quite that simple in that if you aren't logged into the steam store and/or steam community you can possibly need to log in, it's just that any legit use of steam account-based login will send you to steam for anything involving the entry of actual account info.

This is legit why I don't family share with people. If the person you're sharing with gets VAC banned, you'll get VAC banned as well. Who knows what will happen if they get their account hacked

 I family share with, well, family. My wife isn't going to get VAC banned. My son has a number of parental restrictions set on his account. But as he gets older and has more access to his account I'm not sure if I'll keep family share active with him. You can try to teach them right from wrong, but one little mistake....
 

Lionheart (+1 removed game will never play used to get up to $30)

 Couldn't pull the trigger on that one. Just didn't seem like it was actually good.
 

The Fall - 90%, $0.99

Try to play The Fall as soon as you can. That is not a game to backlog and forget about.
