@VN1X The House Abandon is great and has been free to play for a while now..

Creates such a brilliant atmosphere. Simple but highly effective.

Is that one story of the four from Stories Untold then or? 

 

EDIT: Ah never mind "Stories Untold is a compilation tape of four experimental text adventures, including a remaster of the original episode The House Abandon."

Apologies for the bombardment of noob questions over the last couple of weeks folks but anybody used this site ?

stumbled across it and quite like the idea of a random Steam code for 79p etc.....

I've bought a few games from there, never had them revoked from Steam, but I hear you're basically funding terrorism that way.

If you want a copy of Bad Rats that desperately, just hang on 'til the Steam Secret Santa or something.

Yeah, G2A has a reputation for being a grey market place where people generally steal keys from indie developers, either through credit card fraud or by pretending to be reviewers or streamers and then they just list them there.

 

G2A offers a protection thing where you are "protected" from any dodgy keys that might get taken away or whatever. This comes with a free trial but I believe you need to put your CC details in and then they make it incredibly difficult to cancel the trial. Only allowing you to cancel in the last couple of days of the month being one of the ways.

 

Not sure how much of it is the shady stolen keys, but be careful when buying anything there.

The best bit of their AMA was when a user pointed out to them that they were talking bullshit about ensuring that only verified keys and transactions appeared on the site, and their site had a gaping exploit.

 

G2A told the user they were wrong.

 

The user then pointed it out to G2A with detailed screenshots documenting the process.

 

G2A still insisted the user was wrong, then tracked down their account on the site and banned them.

 

In short: Avoid G2A.

And the very fact a retailer offers you a subscription service to protect against the exact same retailer ripping you off tells you all you need to know.

If you want 'random' cheap keys then stick to the bundle sites. Humble is the highest profile but Bundlestars is often very good. Indiegala and Groupees have dropped in quality but that may be because I often already have many of the games in their bundles. They're all legit sites though.

Yup and I am getting my ass handed to me. This is probably the hardest shooter I've played in years! Maybe the hardest videogame I've played since the NES era? 

 

I'll record a vid later of me playing sucking at it. 

Here's me failing miserably.

 

 

I have now unlocked the Aberration versions of a few levels which are sort of remixed version and introduce modifiers (speed, no dash, slowmo, 1-hit kills, etc). Loving the akimbo weapon challenges so far.

I've just downloaded Enter The Gungeon, using my Xbox One Controller plugged into my laptop. Playing through the Tutorial and when I get to having to use the blanks it asks me to press both sticks in, however this does nothing....I'm stuck.....Anybody know what I'm doing wrong or how to skip the tutorial ?

 

cheers

Weird, I just checked my button bindings and Blank is set to nothing (well, "blank", HILARIOUS) for some reason, weird.  It's "Q" on the keyboard, or you could assign it to something on the controller.  You'll want to find a way of being able to use blanks, anyway.

Something's up with it, I managed to bind using blanks to LB and RB together, the next bit asks you to teleport but my right stick won't work, so I'm aiming in one direction and can't move to the teleport thing atall. 

 

Not having fun with this !

Excellent, thanks @clippa

 

I must admit the last few weeks since starting to play games on my PC I really have re-kindled my love for gaming. Before Christmas I'd only ever played Football Manager on PC, now I have a whole catalogue of absolute beauts on Steam to play through, Stardew, Binding Of Isaac, Gungeon, Starbound, all fantastic little gems that I'd have otherwise missed out on.

Apologies but this isn't a Steam key but this thread will have to do! It's basically free closed BETA for Gwent. That's the card game from Witcher 3 being spun out into it's own thing, you will need a GOG account to be able to download it though:

Please post if you use it!
