The post contains an image of an email to a developer from Valve that has supposedly revealed the dates of the upcoming sales for this year. According to the email, the Autumn Sale will begin November 27th through December 3rd. The Holiday Sale will occur from December 19th through January 2nd. The two sales will have the same discounts due to the close timing. Unfortunately, this has not been confirmed as official yet.
  3. Today CD Projekt RED announced on their site that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be 100% DRM-free.On an announcement on CD Projekt RED’s official blog, Marcin Iwinski stated: “I’d like to say it loud and clear: The PC version of The Witcher 3 will have absolutely no DRM from day 0. Zero. Zip. Nada. It doesn’t matter if you choose to buy it on GOG.com and support us directly or buy the game in box format, you’ll still get the 100% DRM-free experience.†There is no word yet on whether this will include a Steam version as well.

  5. 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.
  6. 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

As with Bioshock 2, save files from GFWL will not be carried over to the new Steam version, although a workaround has been discovered.
  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. 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, i
  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.
  13. Perhaps PC Gaming Report, to go with the Wiki name?
  14. 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...
  16. There's been a lot of talk about the Arkham games for awhile, they've got the Steam achievements in place. No official word on it, though. Aside from that, I hear rumors, but nothing solid. Supposedly, Ultra Street Fighter IV will remove GFWL from the game and will be a paid upgrade, but I can't confirm that, either. Edit: I did find confirmation that Ultra SF IV will switch GFWL for Steamworks: https://twitter.com/haunts/status/367489306631225346
  17. Today, Bioshock 2 was migrated to Steamworks. All keys, retail and digital, can now be activated on Steam. The Steam version no longer uses Games for Windows Live or SecuROM DRM. The update includes new multiplayer changes, Xbox 360 Controller support, Steam achievements, and removal of GFWL. GFWL saves and achievements do not transfer to the new version. The Steam version includes the DLCs. Anyone who activates an existing key will get Minerva's Den for free; future keys or Steam purchases will not include Minerva's Den. Minerva's Den is now available on Steam for $9.99 USD. Click

  21. Hmm, I know I've played some bad ones. An old Street Fighter version with no controller support and problems when you pressed more than 2 keys, I think. The most frustration was FF7, though. It crashed like crazy in the old days, because of the rushed conversion. The controls were fine once configured, but to configure them you had to figure out the numpad controls first. Videos looked like crap, and the music was weak midi versions (I had a Yamaha sound card that worked with softsynth, but it caused the game to crash even more). And the cutscenes were prerendered movies, which if there
  22. Of all time? Hard to say. I think I might have listed some of my favorites on my profile. For the moment, I'd say these: SimCity - This game was a lot of fun, and was pretty much the model for simulation and strategy games to follow ever since, even now. Starcraft - It was all done before, but this game tied an excellent story with tight gameplay and design. I still consider it the best RTS I've ever played. Civilization (II, IV) - This game series took the management of SimCity, and made it grander. Civ games has so much freedom and diversity, the only thing that comes close
  23. I've got several games I've been rotating lately, it's not just been one or two games. I've been working on a second playthrough of Deus Ex Human Revolution since I finally got around to getting the DLC for it, but I'm taking my time with it. Dying to see what the Missing Link DLC is like. I've been having a lot of fun with XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Crusader Kings II. I just downloaded a bunch of CK mods this morning and haven't had time to use them yet. But it seems like a good way to spend a quiet Sunday afternoon, too much going on tomorrow.
  24. A bit of a minor bug, but if you move your mouse over the word "Windowed" on the video settings, it shows "Borderless Fullscreen Windowed" instead.
  25. "First you will fix your game, then there will be cake." -Portal "I fix Error." -Zelda II "Ribbit! Thanks for the fix!" -Starfox "You must defeat the game bugs to stand a chance." -Street Fighter 2 "Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep." -Civilization IV I agree with the waiting for Half-Life one...
