I used that card farming program a couple of years back and made about £18 in the background whilst working on other things. I should run it again.

Thanks for the response,  forgive me for being lazy but card farming program? 

 

On the high seas? Google just gives a load of tedious videos about steam and seemingly unrelated shit.

I see it as my way of giving back to my friends on the forum! That and if one game every 4 months catches my eye I haven’t really lost anything :)

 

You gifted me Shenmue in November and it became one of my best gaming times of the last half decade - played, completed and loved. <3

And that’s why I keep paying for Humble even though I do t have time to play any of them, I’m like a gaming Cilla Black, matching forum members with great games :)

Someone must me buying these cards. Look at any game at all and you'll see something like 3 purchases in the last 24 hours. I always ask why? Do enough people want to complete the set or do people buy these as an investment?

 

Once you complete a set once you become eligible for free card packs which are created as others turn their sets into badges.

 

edit : and thanks @CovisGod for the kind gift of Blasphemous!

I'm a bit late discovering this, but...

Steam's approach to game soundtracks has been broken, to put it mildly. It's been treated as downloadable content for its associated game, forcing you to buy the game in question -- and you could forget about having an easy way to manage your collection. Valve is thankfully fixing that experience. It's introducing a "soundtrack" app type that lets you buy soundtracks whether or not you own the core game, manage them in your Steam library and place them in a central music folder instead of scattering them across multiple game directories. Developers can even sell soundtracks when the game isn't available on Steam

This could be interesting - I always thought the "DLC" approach was a bit bizarre (what about people who own the game on another platform but want the music for their PC?), so having more choice is a good thing.

The kind of thing they probably should have done before their first punt at a Steambox really.

 

Yeah, they messed up on that really. I know Valve have been vocal about breaking the Windows monopoly on gaming, and this is quite a step forward but ultimately it might not be a winnable fight. Funny, the only company more vocal were Epic, Tim Sweeney was practically a conspiracy theorist on MS and their dark motives in the PC gaming arena. Then he goes and releases a game platform that doesn't support Linux at all, nice one Tim.

 

(The other fairly stealthy pro-Linux move is from Google - their stadia platform forces companies to port their game to Linux to run on it. Be interesting to see if that has any payoff from a user perspective in buying Linux games).

 

Anyway, not that I'm a Linux fanatic by any means, I have a Windows 10 desktop that I do serious gaming on. But it's nice to see these developments and the push from Steam to support them is something they don't get enough credit for IMHO.

Has anyone here played Wildermyth?

I took a punt on this and i'm so glad I did, I just lost a whole Saturday to it!

 

It has a similar 'one more turn / mission' that XCOM has, along with some wonderful stories and interactions.

 

This is a character I ended up with during my run through the first campaign...

She ended up sacrificing herself during the final encounter to save her lover :(

 

I'm really excited to see how this develops, but apart from some basic UI elements, this does not feel like an early access game. Highly recommended (Steam reviews are overwhelmingly positive).

It’s a great bundle and I thought ooh never got around to playing The Surge, that Sherlock game look interesting and Wonderboy looks very pretty.

 

So I bought it only to realise that The Surge is on Origin Access, and I have Sherlock and Wonderboy from Twitch.

 

 This is why you are supposed to check GOG galaxy before buying things!!

 

Still the SNK collection has Ikari Warriors so not a complete waste of nearly £4

The SNK Collection is a real labour of love, and is absolutely worth playing for the more obscure titles alone, never mind the bigger names like Ikari Warriors; it's well worth far more than just £4 on its own, so you shouldn't regret the purchase!

Anyone want any of these? I'm never gonna use 'em so even if they're for someone else its sound.

 

I''d love Shadow of Mordor if you've still got it
