Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

There is now a new [STEAM] thread to post in

Coping With Steam: Reinterpreted Artistic Commentary on Our Shared Affliction

Most Frequently Asked Questions

1. Steam's search tool is cumbersome and not very informative. Is there a website, other than Steam's, I can go to find out what's on sale?


2. Can I register this copy of (Insert Game Here) on Steam?
Here's a list of games you can register on Steam. You can always add a non-Steam game to your Steam games list, so that people can see you playing it.


3. If I buy a game pack that already includes a game I own, can I gift that game?
No, this was a one-time thing for people who already owned Half-Life 2 and bought the Orange Box. Additional copies you own are lost forever to the ether.


4. Why isn't __Insert Game Here__ available in my horrible little corner of the earth?
Many Steam games might be unavailable in your country if you have the temerity to live outside of the United States. This is not Steam's fault. Regional game availability is determined solely by the publisher, who should be the source of your ire. Gifting works regardless of region so you might find some helpful person in North America who can gift you the game.


5. How do I get an invite to the Penny Arcade Steam group?
The most convenient way is to just post a link to your Steam profile page (getting one of the swank signatures described below makes it easy) and ask for an invite.

Some Words on Gifting

If you receive a game or pack via a gift or a contest, remember to thank that person either through a PM or by announcing it in the thread. We are classy gentlemen and will act as such.

If you are having trouble sending a gift to someone or want to grab a game at sale price to be used as a gift sometime down the road, remember you have the option of sending a gift via e-mail, including to your own e-mail! You can then forward the e-mail message to the intended recipient at some later time, as long as the hyperlink to actually open the gift hasn’t been clicked.


An Important Word on Contests

If you decide to run or participate in a giveaway contest for gift copies of games, please remember that all entry submissions must now be made via PM. The forum mods have stated that pages of the thread being filled with pictures, videos, etc. submitted as contest entries will lead to such contests being banned. So please, for the sake of the thread – take it to PMs.


Helpful Stuff

Steam Price Guide
Do you have the misfortune to live somewhere other than America? Steam hates you! Luckily, this cool website with prices for Steam games all around the world is here to help, so you can know if you want to ask an American friend to buy the game for you or not.
AUSTRALIANS!!!!

You need this program.

It reconfigures your Windows IPSEC settings (run it as an admin) to block out all but the servers which don't count towards your download quota on Steam. Now supports a bunch of ISPs through a graphical interface.

Basically guarantees you won't add to your download quota with Steam.

Download TCPview: TCPView

Then, use TCPview to close all Steam TCP servers (this is important, NOT the UDP ones, just the TCP ones). Steam will then reconnect to a different server, which will hopefully get you a better speed. If you don't go faster in a couple of seconds, retry until you get a speed you like.

This shit totally needs to go into the OP, I've tipped this to so many people already.

Cool Community Add-Ons

Steam Signatures
With such a cool service, someone must have done some extra things to build on it. The forums have one such man, who made some super cool Steam signatures. Suds is his name and killing is his game. Except for the killing. The signatures automatically use backgrounds for the games and the correct icon. Pretty neat, and they're 100% free!

Sample signature:
steam_sig.png


Steam Calculator
You can also use a script on his Steam Calculator page to see how much your Steam account would be worth if you had taken advantage of some obscure, arcane combination of special deals that nobody could ever have taken advantage of. Or something sort of like that.

Steam Roulette
Having trouble picking a game out of your burgeoning [strike]backlog[/strike] gamebank to play? Let VicWhiten's Steam Roulette decide! Just type in your Steam community ID (easier if you set up a custom URL on your Steam profile page), and Steam Roulette will read your library and randomly pick one game every time you hit "Spin the Wheel!" It even connects to Steam to allow you to install or start the game with a single click.

    I went a little nuts during the QuakeCon sale. I ordered parts for a new PC on Sunday and decided I may as well get some shit pre-ordered. So Skyrim, Rage and Deus Ex got pre-ordered and I went ahead and picked up Brink. Been on the fence about it since release but figured I may as well give it a shot. All my parts should be here by tomorrow looking forward to checking it out.

This will take all items inside the chest/bank if there is room, If not it will take all items starting from top left.There is also a Quick Stack option for the reverse effect.

    Guess I'll be getting back into Terraria. Wow. Maybe I'll just use my old character to build a basic house with all his extra materials, then start completely fresh. I've been wanting to actually try building a
    mansion though...

    Also, anyone try Trauma yet? It looks so interesting, but I'd love some firsthand looks first.

    Finally, I've been trying out Steel Storm thanks to the HIB. Am I the only one who finds it... very lacking? The menu interface is a mess, controls aren't explained - the only way to see what does what is in the customization screen which is incredibly clumsy. Also whenever I load a level, after the actual loading screen, I get another screen that's basically a wall of DOS-like text about what files are being accessed and such. That seems so sloppy, isn't a loading screen supposed to hide that?

    Also the game itself is just... blah. When I die I just respawn with all my upgrades (what few there are) intact and all enemies still defeated. It makes things stupid easy. I was wanting a topdown shooter since I missed on Jamestown during the Sale... and Steel Storm has not fit the bill at all.

    Terraria at 50% off is a great deal. Got 30-40 hours of awesomeness out of it, a mixture of single-player and hours spent spelunking with friends. And with the constant content patches, I'm sure I'll be drawn back to it in the future.

    I go through periods of time where I knock off 20 maps in a week while watching a few shows I'm keeping tabs on, and then months where I won't touch it. Realized I was close to finishing the final achievement and figured I'd give it a shot.

    The thing I like about the challenge modes is that my usual strategy for the standard levels doesn't work, so I've had to change things up a bit to survive. The base game can basically be won with nothing but cannon towers and a few temporal towers. This doesn't hold true for Grinders (meteors are where it's at), no gun rounds (Teslas became a quick favourite for those), etc. It's also changed how I view shaping the maps and the order in which I build/upgrade.

    Man, I should fire up Terraria again sometime. I bought it pretty much the first week it came out, and it remains very close to the "best <$10 I've ever spent" list. At $5, anyone who does not own it yet should seriously jump all the fuck over it. You won't miss that money once you play the game, broski's.

    I'm copying this over to the new thread because it may be the greatest idea I've ever heard.
    The trouble with Mirror's Edge is they make you go through a 6 hour long tutorial before putting you in the actual game... the time trials.

    Also, the parking garage part is awful.

    But really, the time trials are amazing and fun and really if they got to make Mirror's Edge 2 I kinda wouldn't mind if there were no story at all... just environments that you need to get through as quickly as possible.

    Multiplayer relay races would be pretty rad.

    Yes, because the best part about racing is losing because one of your teammates is an idiot.

    Yes, because the best part about racing is losing because one of your teammates is an idiot.

    That's a consideration in basically any team based or cooperative game

    Though, I wouldn't really want to only play for like 1/3 or 1/4 of the match, so fuck relay races.

    Now, competitive races on maps with multiple routes and also maybe some blues throughout the stage to spice things up I could get behind.

    Maybe do each match over like three or four maps, and the lowest combined time is the winner.

    Since EA can't decide if they want to fund it, they should get corp sponsorship from either Pizza Hut or Domino's. Mirror's Edge: Pizza Parkour. You run around delivering pies in 30 minutes or less...in a distopian future.

    I bought a copy of the Quakecon 2011 Pack (all iD/Bethesda games + DLC) for someone who ended up not wanting it. I paid the pre-order price of $54.99. If anyone is interested I can still gift it. I would prefer paypal but I'd be willing to trade it for other games on Steam.

    I will update this post when the copy is gone. If you can read this, I still have it! =)
