So in addition to having a horrible to use web site, a marketplace full of shovelware and scams that makes discoverability impossible and is killing indies, with some of the worst customer support in the entire games industry, Valve has now destroyed the ability for the tools that gave a modicum of transparency into their black box to function. They could have worked on a private API to allow these places to work but didn't. It's almost like they're trying to hide away information that the big AAA publishers (who made up like 90% of Steam's revenue last year) keep trying to hide from the public.
"Our lord and saviour GabeN" is NOT your friend and never has been. Valve is in this for the money, the same as any AAA publisher people love to hate.

Lastly, what is that weapon thing in pic 022?
Markus is really into movie props, he hired a company to decorate the place and they bought a number of pieces including the Brando bike from Wild One, it's in the pics - the guns a prop from a James Bond movie, don't remember which one.

The four best RTSs are, in order:
2. Total Annihilation
3. Dungeon Keeper
The first two never had sequels, and I never understood why.
Sacrifice may have been the greatest and least appreciated RTS game of all time.
Total Annihilation had an excellent expansion pack, the Core Contingency, as well as free weekly units that made the game seem fresh for a long time, unfortunately it had to deal with Warcraft II's popularity. I remember in college no one would play TA with me, but Warcraft LAN games until dawn were a nightly occurrence. Good times.
