    I wish more devs would. I'd be much more likely to buy a product if I had a good indication that it may still be getting bugfixes years later.

    I already buy any game that's tagged with cats, so I doubt it.

    I actually managed to get some worthwhile recommendations from Deep Dive and I tested it with the "played on another platform" ignore option. It seems to actually take it into account. I do hear my fan acting up whenever it loads the recommendations and those six second videos, though. Lots of new front end additions from Valve this year, it seems.

    So Valve is trying to counter the anti-lootbox measures in France? Such a pro-consumer company. Bet Valve will also find a way to punish people who resell their games.

    Reminder that people in that thread unironically thought it would lead to a used digital game market and not mandatory game streaming.
    Stop playing with the monkey's paw.

    I also hate owning games. Please lord Gaben receive all my money.

    Considering Steam killed the PC physical market, the least they should do is to allow people to own their games

    Is this surprising? Maybe "consumer rights" morons should stop being dogmatic and actually analyzing the court decisions and ineffective legislation that gets passed, and thinking about the consequences.

    It is very pro consumer, since it's the consumers who want to buy randomised lootboxes and the court wants to take them away.
    Just like it's the consumers who want to buy upfront paid, lifetime long subscription to a service that provides access to a digital copy of a software with personal license to use.
    Only a subscription with recurring payment is supposedly a real subscription, so the courts want to assure that consumers will get the real deal.

    Kinda reminds me of the situation with G2A from the beginning of this year. I used to sell there unwanted bundlefodder and buy bundlefodder from bundles I didn't purchased.
    After some new EU regulations, regarding fraud, banking services, virtual currencies and gambling you have to register a company to sell keys on G2A and they are no longer allowed to provide a payment with virtual wallet to their customers. So, since the beginning of this year:
    1) I have to sell keys on ebay where prices are worse and more obscure indietrash is unsellable.
    2) When I buy on G2A I can't pay with G2A wallet without processing fees, but have to go through external payment processor and cover the fees.

    What could possibly go wrong, when the glorious European United Socialist Republics beurocrats have always only your rights and best interest in mind, right ?

    Reviews should be weighted by how much the game costs in your country. If I'm paying 4x as much as third worlders then I should get 4x as much say in how shit the game is.

    I don't want third worlders on Steam at all. Segregate the Chinks and browns into their own specific Steam clients.

    Maybe Valve should drop the lootboxes? Something like this:
    https://www.polygon.com/2019/1/26/18198543/fortnite-save-the-world-upgrade-llamas-loot-boxes-x-ray

    This is why companies should step forward and allow the resale of digital goods by themselves.

    Valve should squeeze every nickle they can from both consumer and developer and then Gaben should sell it before it all falls apart and live large on his own private tropical island with his own Valve Insex VR whore system.

    Valve charged Swen for burglary, and now he is a fugitive. Baldur's Gate 3 is canceled: https://www.gamesindustry.biz/artic...nto-valve-steals-USD40-000-of-equipment-games
