That's 3 separate fees plus currency conversions. Like was said above, that completely eliminates buying keys from the BST thread.

I don't see how this is anything but a money grab.

I am going to contact them later today as well.

I will never pre-load a game on Steam again. Unpacking it, or whatever Steam is doing, takes longer than me downloading it again.

You are right. $3 fee to send money to Europe or United states. https://www.paypal.com/ca/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees That wasnt there 2 weeks ago.

I was selling steam keys in the BST thread a month ago and couldnít find an option for family and friends. It was for a $4 key and got charged $1.25 for the fee. Such garbage. Anyway I thought it was a US thing and Iím outside the states so I didnít really think much of it.

Wow, those fees are ludicrous. Is it just for sending money and receiving is still without fees?

It's for real, and you should play it before reading anything at all about it. Seriously. Go to the Steam page, hit the download button and go play. Especially do not go to TVTropes to read about it.

I don't mind it being The Evil Within in the West, I'm just disappointed that on the store page it isn't called THE EVIL WITHIN 2 PsychoBreak / PSYCHOBREAK 2 The Evil Within.

For an alternative view: Love it, I have played through the game by the time the season pass becomes relevant and in this day and age I will never have time to play a game like that again so I will never have any reason to buy the season pass.

Applies to pretty much every season pass.

Total Warhammer 2's Mortal Empires campaign, which combines the first and second campaign maps into one megacampaign, has a release date now: October 26.

It is the grandest campaign Creative Assembly has ever worked on. It's around twice the size of the first game's map, with 35 different lords to use, with older factions updated to the newer rulesets. There's also some major tweaks to certain aspects of the game (a full rebalance for one, I think, but it hasn't been unveiled yet), so it should be a fresh experience no matter who you choose.

It's gonna be a big'un, y'all. Prepare for a a total waagh.


I'm still kinda stunned by how much Creative Assembly has continually knocked Total Warhammer out of the park. It's just so fun.

Well its 20% off GMG which is pretty good (use code SUCHWOW10) I mean we are used to Ubisoft games being really cheap at launch because they usually bundle with videocards. I have to buy on Steam though because it has steam achievements! For an Ubi game!

It probably does have or at least they have tried it:

http://api.steampowered.com/ISteamUs...?gameid=582160

Same goes for butwhole: atlthough not listed on store page: (these are added in past few weeks)

http://api.steampowered.com/ISteamUs...?gameid=488790
It's amazing how much better this looks when you take that huge "Visit store page" button and actually just make the name of the game clickable in wishlists.

Before (no Enhanced Steam):


After:

Ultimately I'm just making more room to add actually useful functionality there going forward.

Question, since I dont wanna open a new thread.

If a publisher releases a game on Steam/PC, thats only available there, but regionlocks it to a certain country (lets say the US) and its not giftable and you are not allowed to use a foreign region you dont reside in, would it be morally wrong to download that game?

In theory, yes. But you wont go to hell.
