    PlayTracker Insight, a new Steam stalking website: https://playtracker.net/insight/

    It appears to use the old SteamSpy method to determine number of owners from accounts that made their list of games public (which is a non-representative sample and therefore inaccurate, but still good to have)

    Grand Theft Auto 5 still selling on PC, yet no announced Red Dead ports yet. Ridiculous.

    Microsoft and Sony are paying for it, since GTA V was the top console-selling exclusive.

    There is not a single reason why Take Two wouldn't want RDR2 on PC. Unless they paid handsomely not to do it, for a time at least.

    Remember the release dates for GTAV?
    For Red Dead Redemption 2 so far we've had:
    Chances are they want to double-dip on PS5 and Xbox Whatever before they even think about releasing it on PC half a year to a year later.

    Rockstar fears the piracy boogeyman will cut into their sales.

    Store page for the Valve Index Headset was apparently Live for a short while, supposed to start selling June 15: http://archive.is/WjfBE
    According to SteamDB it ships the three different hardware packages (HMD, Controllers and Base Stations separately) and comes with 2 CD Keys for "Unknown" Apps: https://steamdb.info/app/1059530/

    I would say less malice and more likely incompetence, rumor was Red Dead Redemption 1 was so haphazardly cobbled together they lacked the talent to produce a port of even GTA4 standards.

    That's a solid point I suppose. I know console piracy exists but it's more inconvenient last I checked due to getting modded hardware and whatnot. I suppose they could be waiting for X number of sales and the online to blossom (if it does) before throwing it to the PC wolves. I doubt they're waiting on enhanced ports for new consoles as someone else mentioned, since the fucking thing already runs at high-res and they're not gonna do new assets.

    So I started up Steam today and my friends list literally won't show up, or when it does it says everyone is offline and I can't read chats.

    Thanks Gaben, can't wait for your general UI update that surely won't be a total clusterfuck, like the one in 2012, and make me hate you you fat fucking slob.

    Fuck you.

    Long time ago you had to be online to set the offline mode, but that has not been the case maybe since 2013, all you need is to had been online once after installing steam. If a game don't start in offline mode is because it has another DRM on top or the devs made it need online connection every time you start the game, nothing to do with steam. Also offline mode had some sort of time out where you had to go online once a month, but in last couple of years I had never seen it myself so I would presume it's gone now.

    It's one of those things people would rather complain about for years instead of actually looking for a solution.
