The Steam Thread

Thethinice told me to make this thread so here it is.

Just talk about anything and everything Steam.

And btw, this is Steam the PC and Mac gaming store, not the steam that comes out of Cup of Noodles.

I used to love Steam back in the day, played Half Life, Counter Strike etc. until Portal came out and it used to crash about halfway through most levels on my ancient PC so I gave up.

Fast forward and now I have a Macbook Air and I'm looking forward to getting into some old classics, and new games too...and to be honest I'm pretty disappointed. Old games like Half Life won't play, and new games I really want to play like Magic the Gathering aren't compatible. Or should that be the other way round?

Either way, I know its still quite fresh on Mac, but still annoyingly sparse.

Free TF2 was an upside I'll admit...

I'm pretty pissed that Battlefield 3 won't be coming to Steam.

If you need to find some silver lining, Origin isn't half bad and works pretty well.

It's no Steam, but oh well.

Ahh if only Battlefield 3 came out on Steam. I really don't like Origin, because the only games they're going to be selling are EA games.

Upcoming iPhone Games: World of Midgard,Paper Monsters, LostWinds,The First Attempt,Blade Slinger, Kale in Dinoland, Prevail

One big downside to Origin is the fact that they close your account after 1 or 2 years of inactivity and you lose your games too.
