BIG OLD LIST OF GAMES ON SALE
Most Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I register this __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.2. 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.3. Why isn't __Insert Game Here__ available in my region?
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.
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 (run as admin if you're on Vista) 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.

Steam iPhone App
You have an iPhone? That money could easily have been spent on Steam games. If you want to make the best of your shiny gadget, however, check out this Steam iPhone app
. For less than the price of a grande mocha frapaacino or whatever, you can buy an unofficial program (which appears to have been created by a PA guy who has not stepped forward if the Armadeaddon screengrab means anything) which does all sorts of Steam shit.Speaking of iPhones...
(holy crap, GTA4 is 16 gigs!)
I don't know whether to ask "again?" or "still?"

PAX Prime 2014 Buttoneering!
Borderlands on sale! That reminds me, I should go get it for free.
HL2e3 will be a Minecraft expansion pack
That's a hobby I don't understand.
I am in the exact same position. It is saddening.
Even playing alone it scratches some strange FPS/RPG/Loot Collecting itch, but I feel like I'm doing it wrong.
Welcome to DLC!
How else do you expect to make the big moolah without selling completely worthless things that just look more pretty?
Now I never will...
Probably just on Impulse since it was developed (or at least published) by Stardock.

Episode 2 was released almost three years ago. DNF was announced thirteen years ago. There's a bit of time yet before we reach that level of delay.
Regardless, if you have paypal, and PM me nowish, then for the low, low, bundle price of $15 (or about £10 if you're on the isles), you too can enjoy the thrilling "Ballad of Boggy B"
Actually, you know what... let's not click that spoiler. It tis a silly song.

Viewing the forums through rose colored glasses... or Suriko's Ye Old Style and The PostCount/TimeStamp Restoral Device
There's something that confuses me a little. The DRM lists "Microsoft SSA and ZDPP". I believe Microsoft SSA is something related to GFW Live, but I have never heard about ZDPP before. A quick googling reveals that ZDPP is also related to GFW Live.
So I kind of want to buy it just to show Capcom, "Yes, if you release a PC version of your games on launch day people will buy it". Which is special because I haven't bought a game full price for a long time (Steam sale junkie). I do lament that there is no preorder bonus or discount, but that's just spoiled brattiness.
Just...buy their games if you have any interest in them. They deserve it and it sends a good message.
edit: Actually they do release the games after their console versions - but I'll let that slide since they otherwise do a good job.
Yes to all 3. Will probably get Dead Rising 2 pretty soon; just so they are convinced to release SSF4 sooner rather than later.
I wonder if it's GFWL
