    @emutheelf has retaliated against me sending him Risk of Rain by gifting me Antichamber! Thanks!

    @Berylline is giving new meaning to the term class warfare--I was gifted Bastion the previous evening and there wasn't even anything I could do about it. She was all "BLAM! HERE'S BASTION!" and I was all "WAT!?"

    I'm swiftly learning that you don't fuck with Berylline. Just don't do it.

    I don't know, I mean I'm not saying I'd absolutely trade sexual favours for games but I'm also not saying I absolutely wouldn't either.
    It depends on the game I guess.

    More people need Risk of Rain.

    It's the purest essence of hardcore Diablo in a 30 minute package that hates you the first dozen or so times you play it.

    Then it clicks, brilliantly. And you're able to stop it from punching you in the dong/ovaries.

    You find the perfect mix of items and you stop doing so many dumb things and this rough, little gem shines through.

    And then you get mobbed by blighted clay men, swear, and start up another run.

    I am almost always down for a game or three.

    Got an email that one of my cards sold on the community market. Nothing special about that, but the name of the person who bought it was priceless.
    Dear steevl,

    An item you listed in the Community Market has been sold to Donald Trump's Hairpiece. Your Steam Wallet has been credited 0.39 USD.

    Oh man, that sounds sexy.

    In other news, not only did @an_alt rebuke my gift, he sent me a mystery code! I will have to redeem later, but I am sure it will be awesome, thanks!

    Looking for cards both to hit 20 (for a slight increase in boosters that I very rarely see) and to complete at least one Snow Globe badge.
    This sudden desire to complete badges made me idle in some games for the first time last night. Maybe I should have done that sooner, but I didn't want to throw my play times off.

    Globes:
    Completed.

    Obviously I'd like to complete badges for many of my games, but the badges I'd love to complete more of are Payday 1&2, Borderlands 2, and Magicka.

    EDIT: Thanks @Busfahrer for Snow Globe number 1!
    (And for quietly pointing out through your trade that I had an extra 8, not 10, which I don't have. I'm not awake yet.)

    EXTRA EDIT: Using strikeout makes the no longer needed 1 look like a 4, so I'll just...remove the numbers.

    MORE EDITS: Thanks @Taramoor for Snow Globe number 10!

    FINAL EDIT: Success! Snow Globe level 1 AND level 20 account.

    So, I somehow haven't learned my lesson about chatting with @HiT BiT, and was all, "Sure, I'd be happy to help!" when he asked for some opinions on adventure games, of which he noticed I was a big fan. I did start getting more suspicious when he asked about games that I did not own, and rightly so, since he soon handed over the codes for Still Life 1 and 2, and Post Mortem. Thank you, you classy individual! <3

    There are no entries for this as of right now, but dang folks, if you don't have this, enter the giveaway. It is an incredible game if you like any of the following:

    -Strategy
    -History
    -Medieval Lore
    -Role Playing
    -A Song of Ice and Fire
    -Forcing people to marry people
    -Starting a War
    -Ending a War
    -Taking over Europe
    -Settlers of Catan
    -Getting your first born assassinated because he's a dummy and the next in line would be a much better king
    -Hiding in Norway because everybody else is killing each other
    -Learning about history
    -Learning in general
    -Pulling yourself up by the boot straps
    -Single games that could last days
    -Practicing micro or macro management

    I could go on and on and get more redundant, but really, what a good game. I only wish I had more time to play it.

    Maybe you guys can help.

    For weeks now, I've had 1 unread pending trade offer in Steam.

    If I try to check it, there's nothing there. Yet, I still get the little green envelope with the 1 beside it. All the time. It's maddening.

    Any ideas? If I log in to the website client, I see no pending items.

    So has any game topped that Train game with all the DLC in terms of cost? Cause I'm looking at the Rocksmith DLC and it's clearly death by a thousand cuts. A few bucks here and there and oh no, you've bought several hundred dollars worth of songs.

    Seeing so many copies of Far Cry 3 fly around makes me all warm inside. Aside from the plot getting more and more aggressively stupid as you go along, the gameplay is a pure shot of fun right into a vein. Exploring, finding bits, tripping balls on mushrooms, crafting wallets from tapir skins, the first time you take over a base without tripping an alarm, climbing towers and unlocking the map, upgrading guns, etc. etc.

    Beware of crocodiles though. And hang gliders. It's a toss up which is more deadly.

    Huge thanks again to @Big Classy who gifted it to me and a lot of other folks last year. A regular Johnny Far Cry Seed that one. :)

    Okay, my Steam is still being a piece of shit and doing this. Why

    Okay, so I decided to opt into the beta client to see if it would resolve my issues...but now Im back to not being able to download the Steam client because it keeps losing progress and eventually tells me that Steam needs to be connected to the internet. I know this isnt an internet issue as Im not losing connection to anything else and Ive tried both my home wifi and tethering my phone to my computer and the issue persists. Im super tempted to just nuke this install from orbit and start over, but Im pretty lazy and my Windows 7 disc is like 500 miles away.


    I just want Steam to work :(

    EDIT: And according to my phone, I downloaded 270MBs in an attempt to download the 89 required for the Steam update.

    So my tale of woe continues:
    I cant download games. Well, I can, but they dont. I bought Far Cry 3 and so far its downloaded 9kbs. Ive run CCleaner, Ive manually deleted references to Steam in regedit, Ive tried running in compatibility mode, Ive tried restarting, and opting into the beta...I dont know what else to do :(


    EDIT: Now that I think about it, I downloaded Papers Please last night (or the night before) so I dont know what the fuck is up with Far Cry 3 not working.

    @emp123, stupid question, but have you changed your Steam location to different servers? Also, in Control Panel, Internet Settings, Connections, LAN Settings, make sure ALL THAT SHIT is unchecked, then try again.

    Yeah, Ive switched to a couple of servers in the area and it didnt resolve anything. LAN options were all unchecked already.

    Thanks for the help though.

    I dont think its an internet issue since the images in the store page arent properly displaying, but Im not sure what could have caused it.

    Try the TCP loading option for your Steam shortcut: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=5623-QOSV-5250

    That didnt fix anything either :(

    I also just updated (after the issues began) my SSD's firmware, even though Steam and most of my games are on a mechanical drive. Im running the most recent Nvidia drivers, but Im starting to think there may be a correlation between when I installed those drivers and now, but Im also thinking Internet Explorer may have fucked something up (I had to use IE to launch Battlefield 4 as Chrome got all fucking (kinda like Steam actually)).

    EDIT: Im gunna give the Nvidia beta drivers a shot.

    Im also seeing issues with some things Ive downloaded off the internet, namely downloading Steam from Steam's website gave me a file I couldnt install because its corrupt.
    @DaringDirk

    My Steam folder continues to set itself to read-only, but Ive determined whatever my issue is it only applies to Windows 7 - I have a Windows 8 partition and just installed Steam no problem and its currently downloading both Far Cry 3 and Bioshock. Unfortunately its the Windows 8 RC and I have zero desire to boot into it every time I want to play a new game.

    While Windows 7 virus scan and Malware whatever both didnt find anything when I was in Windows 7, Im running them in Windows 8 just to be sure.



    I should probably spin this off into its own H/A thread.

    Thanks @SciencePiggy @EvilMonkey for humouring me there. Was able to jog out the stuck trade. If that happens to anyone else, have someone send you a specific trade offer, then open it, and you should see the old trade offer that's stuck there too, and you can decline it.

    Open to the Penny Arcade group for people who have run a steamgifts promotion in the past :) Ends 9pm on Christmas Eve.

    Bumping for @Jragghen who is exiled on his phone for a week. (Jragghen, best way to do this from a phone is to go through your PA profile page to your own "Posts." Makes it easy to track back to a giveaway and quote it from there. You just have the be sure to manually go back to the end of the thread or else it thinks you are "unread" from that older point which can be unnerving when you next go back to see +300 more unrread posts than there really are. ;) )

    Thanks, man, but the FORUMS themselves aren't actually the issue. My parents have a computer just fine (I'm on it right now :P) and the computer actually has Steam installed on it. I just can't send/recieve trade offers for some inane reason, and I can do so from my phone, but I can't DRAG cards to make the trades myself, an.....wait a sec.

    dum de doo. Leaving this thing up while Steam update is installing.

    SUCCESS.

    Okay, I can do everything from here. False alarm.

Im running the most recent Nvidia drivers, but Im starting to think there may be a correlation between when I installed those drivers and now, but Im also thinking Internet Explorer may have fucked something up (I had to use IE to launch Battlefield 4 as Chrome got all fucking (kinda like Steam actually)).

    EDIT: Im gunna give the Nvidia beta drivers a shot.

    Im also seeing issues with some things Ive downloaded off the internet, namely downloading Steam from Steam's website gave me a file I couldnt install because its corrupt.

    My Steam folder continues to set itself to read-only, but Ive determined whatever my issue is it only applies to Windows 7 - I have a Windows 8 partition and just installed Steam no problem and its currently downloading both Far Cry 3 and Bioshock. Unfortunately its the Windows 8 RC and I have zero desire to boot into it every time I want to play a new game.

    While Windows 7 virus scan and Malware whatever both didnt find anything when I was in Windows 7, Im running them in Windows 8 just to be sure.



    I should probably spin this off into its own H/A thread.

    Is your Steam stuff in a folder like My Documents, or something?
