Not really too dumb, just not willing to hire specialists in the field I think. If they aren't willing to hire the proper people for the right jobs (like security, or UI design), then they need to contract the stuff out.

I guess they had a security workgroup but nobody at Valve/Steam moved their workdesk to it because it seemed to be no fun. Just like single player games in general don't seem to be fun anymore for the Valve people.

They might sell some "early access security program", though.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Steam store down AGAIN!

wow....

Yep. Either Steam is too dumb to stop the script kiddies (whose parents should be sued to hell and back), or this is a bigger thing than we all thought.

Bioshock Infinite is pretty fun and worth $10. I beat it on "hard" a week or so ago and got my ten bucks worth.

I liked it at least as well as the first Bioshock.

Seems it only is for US customers.

By the way Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for 4.68 with the GMG25-0YUM5-VKMVU voucher at Greenmangaming.

That code did not work for me but GMG20-ZB5D1-93X49 did. I got it for $6.00. Time to get a 2nd Steelseries gamepad.

ETS2 is fun though.


*cackles with glee*

Lol! As one player review said it aptly....

The mystical addictive nature of this game defies explanation. You cannot describe it, you can only experience it.


My wife was watching me play it and laughs at me. "Why is playing that fun? I can understand the flying sims but a truck?" What's bad is I can't really answer her. It IS odd that it's fun.

Now that I think about it, she's doing the normal wife back seat driver thing ... in our den! Damn women!

I think it would be fun if I had a steering wheel rather than a gamepad. It's too clunky w/ a gamepad, unfortunately.

It was meh bleh for me. Nothing on my wishlist at prices I wanted. ETS2 is fun though. And Seph got me Mortal Wombat Konplete - thanks again bud, I'll catch you later on that! - so we'll see how that goes. Got some pinball tables, gifted 2 games, and that's it. Oh right, SR4 Season Pass. So not a whole lot.

No kidding. Glad it's over, but I like the craziness of it ("whats on sale now?!").

Steams front page always seems so boring the day after a big sale...
