    Steam Family Sharing hands-on impressions

    Found this thread on the family sharing group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/familysharing/discussions/0/792923683796413789/ It lists games known not to work with sharing. It needs an update, because I've confirmed Arkham Asylum and Half-Life 2 can be shared.

    Steam Family Sharing hands-on impressions

    Just tested something with family sharing. If both accounts have a game, and the sharing account has DLC for the game, the DLC will not be shared. In the test, I had my main account sharing Civ V Gods and Kings, and an alt account with vanilla Civ V. I was unable to access Gods and Kings with the alt, even with sharing. Standalone DLC like Deus Ex HR: The Missing Link still work. DLC for games that aren't on both accounts still work.
  7. Following this month's removal of Games for Windows Live on Bioshock 2, two more games have made the transition from Games for Windows Live to Steamworks.It was annonced today that they have patched the Steam versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City to remove both Games for Windows Live and SecuROM. Non-Steam versions of both games can now also be activated on Steam using the original serial key. Arkham City owners on Steam have been upgraded to Game of The Year Edition, and the game is now playable on Mac. Arkham Asylum, however, does not have Mac support. As with Bioshock 2, save files from GFWL will not be carried over to the new Steam version, although a workaround has been discovered. Click here to view the article

  9. Team17 just posted this on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/app/22600/discussions/0/792923684190183693/#c792924412072640918
  10. The current Humble Bundle for Android 7 includes a version of Worms Reloaded which has omitted any multiplayer support in its DRM-free version. Multiplayer is supported only through Steamworks, and can only be accessed by redeeming the supplied Steam key.Problematically, this fact is not specified anywhere on the Humble Bundle page or download screen. Prior to purchase or install, there is no indication that multiplayer is disabled in the DRM-free version. If you try to access multiplayer, the button will be grayed out and cannot be clicked. Team17, the developer confirmed on Twitter that only single player is available for the DRM-free version. Download attachment: Team 17 tweet about Worms Reloaded multiplayer.jpg It should also be noted that Worms Reloaded multiplayer is not cross-platform on the PC platforms either. Whilst we might not expect Android and iPhone versions to be compatible, it is surprising that Windows, Mac and Linux users can only play with people using the same operating system.

  12. A patch just got pushed on Steam to Arkham Asylum, enabling Steam achievements and supposedly removing GFWL and Securom. I haven't run the game yet to test it (will do that in a second). I have confirmed that the game no longer uses GFWL. Not sure if this applies to Arkham City as well.

    Port Report name change

    Perhaps PC Gaming Report, to go with the Wiki name?

    Port Report name change

    I agree, I never liked Port Report as a name. It always made me think it was only focused on porting games from console to PC. It didn't match the reports themselves. Not in love with PC Report because it sounds a bit generic, but it's simple and to the point. I'll back that idea, unless someone things of something better.
  15. Since we know securom is out, I think the news article should be updated to mention that. Not sure if I can do that or an admin...
