Steam Deck Sale Price Refunds?

A post on Reddit indicates customers who purchased Steam Decks immediately prior to them being discounted in the just launched Spring Sale on Steam have been able to successfully petition for refunds. This is unconfirmed, but there are reports from users saying they've received the price difference back as a Steam Wallet credit. Word is:
If you bought a Steam Deck recently just before the 10% off sale, Valve is offering (as an exception) a Steam Wallet credit for the difference in price if you open up a ticket.

SSI Silver Box Games Return

Developer Strategic Simulations and publisher SNEG announce plans to bring back eight more classic D&D titles from the past to and Steam. Most of these have been unavailable for upwards of 20 years. But we won't have to wait long to take this nostalgia trip, as they're all expected to launch this month. For no discernable reason, this relaunch is hard to understand, so forgive us our confusion. We asked for a clarification, but haven't received one yet, so we'll do the best with what we've got. There will be a base release called Silver Box Classics, and here are the and Steam listings for that. This is said to include the first four Dragonlance module adaptations: "Heroes of the Lance, Dragons of Flame, War of the Lance, and Shadow Sorcerer." But those four titles also have individual listings on both Steam and These say the Silver Box is required, suggesting they are DLC, but if they are only to be included in the Silver Box then they shouldn't need individual listings. As we say, confusion. The other four games are: DragonStrike (, Spelljammer: Pirates of Realmspace (, Fantasy Empires (, and DeathKeep ( Here's word:
It’s time to unearth some gems from the past as today, SNEG — boutique publisher of long-lost titles — is pleased to announce the return of eight long dormant Dungeons & Dragons games. The list features many of the first D&D video games, including Spelljammer: Pirates of Realmspace, Fantasy Empires, DragonStrike, and DeathKeep. Additionally, Heroes of the Lance, Dragons of Flame, War of the Lance, and Shadow Sorcerer will be made available in the Silver Box Classic Bundle. These titles are returning to Windows PC, some for the first time in over 25 years, and will be available on GOG and Steam later this March.

Originally released in the ‘80s and ‘90s, many were able to enjoy these titles on classic gaming hardware including 3DO, Amiga, Atari ST, Commodore 64, NES, Apple II and even the SEGA Master System. Now, SNEG is excited to help players relive those memories on modern PCs.

Mr Trololo AI Upscale: Eduard Khil as never seen before [1080p] (thanks Boing Boing). True confession. Trololo is my ringtone. I don't get a lot of calls in public, but the looks I get when I do are priceless. The clip is actually interesting, as I had zero knowledge of the song's backstory. ♪♫ Trololo… ♪♫
