    One can hope, but they don't seem to have much concern with porting new games to PC. Else Steam would be getting Chrono Phantasma instead of Continuum Shift Extend.

    EDIT: Thinking about it, it...

    Might change in one day. Steam likes to run deals for 48 hours, even when the featured deal changes after 24 hours.

    Some of my wishlist is on sale. For those that are on sale, the discounts look equal to or worse than previous Steam sales.

    Just wait a month for the Christmas sale, which will have the same prices and a slight chance of a few games being a bit cheaper.

    Humble did it first, didn't they? Humble did it with the Warner Bros bundle, which included Arkham Origins DLC even though Arkham Origins wasn't part of the bundle. Humble even 'conveniently'...

    An issue with Humble's situation is that they have always had an easy solution, which is to use a single key for the entire bundle (or one for each tier). Humble tried it, and were met with a strong...

    That Humble Sega bundle is both disappointing and a bit annoying.

    DLC for Total War: Rome II and Football Manager 2015, without the base games.

    DRM did lead to the fun of Ubisoft:
    1) Using/stealing a piracy group's No-CD patch for an official patch to resolve DRM-related issues in the Direct2Drive version of Vegas 2.
    2) Telling users to...

    Gala Giveaways was closer to SteamGifts in its beta days. I want to recall the Gala Giveaways FAQ pretty much describing Steam Gifts, except for the description of how points worked.

    What about games where you are gambling with real money to get in-game items, and can then sell those items for real money? Whether intentionally or not, it ends up similar to the Japanese pachinko...

    I just gave it another try. All twelve games were recommended because they were either 'top sellers' or 'popular'. ...

    There seems to be an issue with the Groupees Doujin bundle, with people currently not getting Steam keys for BlazBlue. (Game shows up in your profile, but with no key.)

    Unfortunately, the PC version of BlazBlue is fairly outdated. There have been two sequels since Calamity Trigger, neither of which were ported to PC.
