Steam can and has revoked accounts or games before. Just recently I read about a game being removed by valve from everyone's steam account. Even GoG isn't doing that, just removing from store for future purchases.

It has also been updated that the Order of War game was restored ro users accounts as it was removed in error. Only the multiplayer game has been removed.

See, back in the Steam store and still for sale. http://store.steampowered.com/app/34600/

Interesting. Any links? I'd like to read up on it.

I guess that answers my question in my previous post...you didn't read anything. You didn't read the links in the story Blue posted above, and you didn't read any links earlier in the thread.
As for it being used to make money...I haven't heard anything like that, but who knows.

I don't think it was a ddos. I think it was everyone frantically trying to buy/sell/craft globes since this time valve said they were going away.

And valve's front end setup couldn't handle it.

Did you look at any of the links at all? 2 groups were DDOSing Origin, Battle.net, Steam among others. See the Twitter feeds linked in the stories.

Well, I hope they make this right and let me do something with the globes I have....

You still have them? People were saying yesterday that they were going to be removed from inventories.

I'd lay even odds that five years from now he sells his company to EA again, because game devs never learn.

Gamers have this crazy notion that all game devs want to do is make the games they want to make without influences from a publisher. They have wives, kids, a mortgage, etc. like everyone else. I've known lots of software developers who spin up companies, make a successful product, sell the company, rinse/repeat. There's nothing wrong with that.

Nothing wrong with that at all. Criterion wasn't a one hit wonder though. They had been around awhile with many successful games and probably didn't need to sell out to EA in 2004. But I don't know what their financial situation was like in 2004, so who knows. Maybe they were in trouble and selling for $40 mil pounds was their best option.

Similarly 2 co-founders from Criterion have also left that company.

And Steam store seems to be back up, for those that are wanting to grab something or get those last Globes they want.

Yep, pretty sad little kiddies need to do shit like this. Saw this on Kotaku last night when the Steam store first went down. Sad that it's still going on. It serves zero purpose, affects millions of people and the little shits are just laughing and relishing in their perceived fame. And of course Dev thinks this is because Steam needs to invest more in their infrastructure... /facepalm

And not sure why Blue hasn't got it referenced, but it's another group claiming responsibility for the Steam attacks, as Derp seems to claim to be doing their attacks on Origin in support of Steam. pair-claim-to-have-attacked-steams-servers

Seriously Blue, the URL command sucks. Can you not have it auto fill the selected url into the correct spot after the = ?

Failing to miss the point would mean he understood the point.

Lol, in my defense it was before I had coffee and obviously combined two ways of making the statement, to have it make no sense.

Is Natural Selection II worth it? Looks like an interesting concept and it's visually appealing, but I could maybe see it getting old, fast..

Not for $21. It's been a fraction of that price before. Personally I couldn't get into the game, but it also runs like crap on my machine, so my patience with it was thin.


Seems the price earlier was an error? I just had another gander and the price is now $2.50. At that price, you can't go wrong, even if you end up not liking it.

On a slightly related news, the Fallout Collection seems to be gone from Steam as well, or at least you are unable to buy Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics anymore.

The pages are still there for the games, you just can't buy them. Which is a change from most games that get pulled from Steam. The Publisher has also been changed to Bethesda. I'd bet the games will be available again once Bethesda makes the changes they need to make to the legal title screens.

...why the fuck would anybody buy a linear console game a second time?

Y'know what? Don't bother answering that. I'm afraid of what might pass for logic thereby.

It does have multiplayer...apparently quite good too.

I really should sit down and finish The Last of Us. I was really enjoying the story, but the gameplay had some major faults. Just need to be in the right frame of mind.

Speaking of the The Last of Us...does anyone know if the upcoming single player DLC is included in the Seasons Pass? It's been asked many times on the PS Blog, but don't think it has been answered.

Shadow Warrior is $10 on Humble Bundle. Worth it?
Did it go that low on Steam?

Yes, several times recently. 4 times in December to be specific.

People really need to install the Steam extension in Chrome.

none of the games i bought in-store, besides Valve ones, have required me to activate or install them over Steam... and i buy a lot of the new mainstream ones too.

That's still very evasive as you've mentioned no specific titles. I'm hard pressed to think of any specific AAA modern titles that wouldn't require activation on one service or another, be it Steam, UPlay, Origin, or even registering an account on a website.

I know games like Call of Duty need Steam but those i play on PS3/360 anyways.

You don't see the irony in this at all? Microsoft and Sony could limit the access you have to your games on their systems as well, just like Steam. In fact, multiplayer games on consoles have a far worse track record of having their multiplayer servers shut down as they do basically yearly sweeps of server shut downs.

Just sell it on the market and buy the one your are missing.
Those cards will disappear from your account tomorrow

Uhhm, why would they disappear from his account? The Summer Sale cards are still available on the Market, which means they are still in peoples inventories.

It is different this time, read the Steam page
http://store.steampowered.com/promotion/snowglobefaq

Unlike previous badges, once the sale ends the cards will disappear. Make sure to trade and craft your badges before Jan 3rd 11am PST.

That sucks, for a lot of people. Personally I don't care, as I've been selling them as I get them. Odd that they changed it, but I suppose they want to be able to reuse them next year, whereas there is no point in reusing the Summer Sale cards.

At the time the original Forbes article was published, Order of War was not on Steam, period. So unless people went back to the article, they would not have seen the update. And Techie didn't link to the article, that I can see, he just referenced it.

Order of War:Challenge was removed from Steam because that's the online expansion that was shut down. Order of War was still available.

And you are correct I mistakenly said he linked to it, brain fart on my end. However he said google it and that was the first relevant result so close enough.

Again...2-3 days ago when that article was first published (and posted on Blues)...Order of War was completely removed from Steam. You could not access it from the Store page, it did not show up on a search on Steam. I tried, as did others when it was first posted. And someone that does own the game, had checked their Steam account and it was indeed gone. It has since been changed.
