The Steam Thread
 
Figured I would create a thread for Steam talk since it has been taking over the Game Discount thread.

A place to post anything related to Steam:

Steam ID's
Steam News
Game Challenges
Brag About an Achievement
Offers for Trades
Anything that you want to post about the service




(yes, I drank the kool-aid and have become a Steam fanboy)

I know we have the FOFC Civ group, why not an FOFC group too?

EagleFan 12-24-2011 12:36 PM

Since I have started adding to my friends list recently I have been in screens that I never visited before (basically looking through the deals or my library was pretty much it prior).

Saw the complete game list (not from the library screen) which shows all of my games with the time played listed. That made me wonder which game I played the most, and if I would be surprised by it.

Not that anyone cares but here is my top 10 played (in terms of time)...

1) WWSM 2009
2) Plants vs. Zombies
3) FM 2011
4) FM 2010
5) Defense Grid
6) Skyrim
7) Frozen Synapse
8) MLB 2K9
9) Torchlight
10) Blood Bowl

Big surprise when I saw the numbers. WWSM 2009 leads by a wide margin, actually more time than the next two combined. Plants vs. Zombies is an inflated number as my daughters play it. If that is taken out and only my time playing PvZ is taken into account WWSM would probably be more than the next 4 combined.

Amazing that for someone who isn't a soccer guy that three of the top 4 are all from the FM series and that the current version hasn't made the cut yet.

Also shocked that Frozen Synapse ended up as high as it is. That has been from a lot of shorter sessions playing.

Tasan01 here. I have some coupons to trade if anyone wants one. I have 50% off Valve, 50% off Oddworld, 50% off STALKER call of Pripyat. I also have a couple of copies of Dogfighter, Halflife 2, and Left for Dead 2.

Ok, make that Aragon42 on Steam.

Finally up to 7 coals. I'm thinking of crafting them, but probably get a 10% Valve coupon or something. Still probably better odds than the drawing and I'll have more coal by then.

Well decided to craft my 7 coal and got a 75% discount on Empire Total War coupon which they had already gifted me, which I already had anyway.

I've got a 50% coupon for Evil Genius. I already have it...again. So its tradeable.

Lonnie 12-24-2011 03:47 PM

I found out if you buy a gift to send someone and it is pending that it shows up in your inventory. So I didn't win Pop Cap Complete, it was just the gift I bought had not been accepted yet. darnit

I have:

-50% Valve (doesn't everyone?)
-25% bitComposer

Neither one is worth anything to me, I'll trade for anyone else's worthless coupons to get the achievement....

EagleFan 12-24-2011 04:46 PM

I have the following coupons if anyone is interested, not even for a trade but if you are just interested in general I'll gift them your way (unless you wanted to trade something but that is up to you):

33% off Valve
33% off Dungeon Siege 3
50% off Section 8: Prejudice
50% off Flight Control HD
50% off Puzzle Agent 2

WahooMac on Steam

I have 50% Valve, 50% Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalker 2012, 50% Shadowgrounds Pack, and 50% Osmos. Probably the only one I might use is the Magic the Gathering one. Would be up for a trade just for the achievement.

Updated update: Just received 50% off Left4Dead2. Still have 50% off L.A. Noire. Still looking for a trade if possible, crappy coupon for a crappy coupon is quite alright...

CrimsonFox 12-24-2011 06:37 PM

so where do you get coupons and stuff?

From the Store page on the main App there is a link under The Great Holiday Sale to The Great Gift Pile. From that link you will find sets of achievements which will earn you a gift of some sort (a lot seem to be coupons). There are different groups of achievements each day, though you can still do the achievments from previous days.

ah I see. Well it seems they want me to buy a lot of games I've never heard of in order to get coupons to buy more games. hahaha.

PilotMan 12-24-2011 07:26 PM

Where does Steam put saved games?

It depends on the game, Steam doesn't set saved game locations.

I gave the copy of The Witcher I earned via achievement last night to a friend who'd previously expressed interest in the game, and I traded my Alien Breed 3 for Puzzle Chronicles.

I currently have a lump of coal, 33% off TellTaleGames/Valve, and 25% off Codemasters available.

I'm curious to see what I end up with after the AYIM achievement tonight.

True. Though soe have gotten games as a reward or coal (which count towards entries in the Sweepstakes they are having after the 2nd (Nice Grand Prize which is every game on Steam).

I actually got The Orange Box as a reward last night.

Caution, just friending him on Steam may cause your life, or your wife, to never be the same.
