In 2008 we had our first official Steam dedicated thread on NeoGAF, over the years the success of Steam as well as the people who post
on these threads has made the Steam threads one of the most popular and usefule threads on the NeoGAF site. In its current form we are
receiving over a million visits in total per thread which has helped us becoming one of the most active and friendliest communities to grace
this board.

Now we are at the 25th version of this ongoing saga and it's still going strong. I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who has
participated in these threads and who have helped us grow over time, without you guys this thread would be nothing and you are the
reason why this thread keeps on going.


I would also like to say a big thanks to SalsaShark for help running the Steam sale threads which can be really hectic being in able to
keep up to date on regular intervals, kudos to her for making great sale threads.


Also for Stumpokapow, a great mod who manages to keep us on a leash when thigns get out of hand as well as running Modbot and
just being darn helpful and having the the patience to put up with our crap sometimes.

Personally It’s been an interesting few years helping out this thread and I can honestly say it’s the best place to hang out on GAF.
I honestly can't count the amount of dedicated gaffers who help out in this thread, it's just mind-boggling the amount of people who
are willing to help, thank you all.

Hopefully we won’t end up in community when we reach the 50th thread.

Detective Case and Clown Bot in: Murder in the Hotel Lisbon
- More_Badass
"In Murder in the Hotel Lisbon, you play as the (in?)famous Detective Justin Case and his wisecracking robot sidekick Clown Bot, investigating
a hilariously strange suicide case. How strange? Well the victim "committed suicide with 14 stabs to the back while at the same time he
peacefully drank his coffee." The zany characters and the witty dialogue and plot twists make for a fun narrative. Explore locations, gather
evidence, interrogate suspects and witnesses in this whimsical adventure game."



Sunless Sea
- More_Badass
"Set in the popular Lovecraftian/gothic world of Fallen London, Sunless Sea lets you explore the vast Unterzee, a sprawling expanse of
ocean deep beneath the earth where grotesque things and terrible fates await those who dare venture into the abyss. As captain, you
command your vessel and crew as you discover new lands, fight dangerous enemies, upgrade your ship with better parts and new
weapons. Endure starvation, madness, mutinous crews, and horrors beyond comprehension on the black waters of Sunless Sea"



Gods Will Be Watching
- More_Badass
"The original Gods Will Be Watching was a confined and taut experience, laser-focused on delivering its bleak hopeless tale. Now
expanded and enhanced, this dark point-and-click adventure leaves the wilderness behind and brings its tough decisions to a variety of
tense nerve-wracking scenarios. From handling a hostage situation to enduring torture and more, there are no good or bad choices,
only shades of gray. Choose wisely and remember...Gods Will Be Watching."

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Gonna take a little time getting used to no sales period. It was my first and oh boy did it break my wallet. But I loved every second of it.

My goal for this month is to get Mafia 1, and to add a new gaming mouse and a third monitor.

Back to reality. Probably my new home on the forums.
Is there really a big difference between something like a cordless Logitech mouse to a wired SteelSeries Rivals? Thinking of getting the latter tomorrow.

Will be interesting to see the effect of this to TF2 keys trading, the middlemen and of course the CIS/Brazil traders in the future.

Ask me about the moon landing or the temperature at which jet fuel burns. You may be surprised at what you learn.
