While I didn't buy much besides 2 games on the Steam sale, I did purchase this.


Falcom Chronicle - 30th Anniversary Official Commemorative Book. Really cool book, can't read Japanese (lol) but there's a ton of artwork in it.

I have no idea what is going on. Is this missing game thing only for the browsers? The actual Steam client still shows them if you bought them?

maybe somebody here can help.

I have an RX 480 outputting to two monitors. One on HDMI (TV) and one via DP. Both are 1080p/60hz. If I duplicate/clone them, boot a game, it seemingly switches everything to lower resolution (including W10's windows) and pushes the image off the right (cutting off a good chunk of the image). If I take away the clone and run it to one monitor, everything acts normally. Here is a short video of the issue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znWajt479G4

Either Supermassive or Supergiant should be forced to change their name. Too confusing.

Well I knocked out Freedom Cry in like 3 hours, it was pretty easy to rush through. I started up both Rogue and Unity and think I will tag team them. I've had my fill with sailing so it will give me a break, as long as I don't start getting the control schemes confused. TBH, I didn't care a ton for playing as a pirate so I like these two new protagonists better so far. Rogue really goes that extra mile in the beginning to remind you you are still on the AC3 engine.

Haha, I understand. I tried to send the PM earlier using my phone, but apparently Select All doesn't exist within the world of Chrome mobile/LastPass mobile and the text selection icons weren't cooperating with my fingers.

List of games scrubbed clean.

Digital Homicide games are there along with others that were review scamming. But stuff like the Doctor Who games were only removed as the rights ran out so the list is not solely scammers, valve gonna valve I suppose.

You can still redownload the games just fine. The issues is them being scrubbed clean of your public game list. Also messes up the achievement pages for the games.

The games are still in user libraries. They're just not counted as owned. A slightly awkward middle position between a purchased game and a Free on Demand game, essentially.

Edit: Ultra mega super beaten.

I'm down to 498 games from 499. I guess Cook Serve Delicious 2 won't be my milestone game after all.

The terminated distribution agreement thing? Is there one with Steam Cloud support? The only such game that comes to mind is The Slaughtering Grounds, which doesn't use SC.

Oh, yeah. I didn't mean to imply it's unlikely, just asking for an example so I can test.

Edit: None of DH's games support Steam Cloud, judging from the Mixed Pack sub.

Edit edit: Missed bob's post. That helps.

It's been two years since I began playing Trails in the Sky FC. Since I plan on playing TiTS 2 and 3, I'll probably get to Cold Steel 3 in... 2026? ^_^

Hmm, the games being placed in some sort of quasi-private state would also explain why they're no longer considered owned.

Edit: Yeah, they're also not showing as recently played on my profile (then again, nothing is).

Maybe the Crossbell arc will be completely translated by then and you can do them in actual order!
