10 Years Old

Today is our 10th anniversary!

Yes, 10 years ago I’ve started a post about prices on the official Steam forums (no longer available) got banned and created this site to fight for pricing bullshit. You can read more about it on the last big post for the 5th anniversary where it’s all summed up pretty nicely. After so many years I think it’s kinda safe to say that the situation is getting better, well at least they’ve introduced a lot of local currencies to Steam, sometimes priced better sometimes worse.

Meanwhile I have started to use Xbox more since I just casually play while sitting on a couch, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece but lately I’ve started to check out some other titles I didn’t play before like Quantum Break which is pretty impressive. I’m waiting for Age of Empires 4 to popup out of nowhere on the PC or One X with mouse and keyboard support, honestly not much to play for the PC, at least nothing I’m interested in, I guess playing all those years on Steam made it seem like a waste of time.

Anyway, starting today I will be posting random game keys on the site just like the good old days 😊 I’ll try not to post them in text though since bots are grabbing them like crazy.

If you’re one of the visitors that reads the site from now and then I would like to thank you again for sticking around and hopefully you will get some free game keys 😊

Have an amazing 2019 guys!

    I still remember like it was yesterday. The original Steam forums thread was hundreds of pages long. Banning you did not help but rather poured oil into fire. And funnily enough the thread did not want to die. It was on top most of the times and as the time passed moved down a bit but there was always someone who made a new reply post (sometimes me) and it was back on top :D So Valve got desperate and locked the thread. But the change had already happen. I truly believe that Valve’s currency scam and your original thread was a moment in gaming history when cracks in Valve began to show. Before that the image of Valve and Newell used to be impenetrable, they used to enjoy overwhelming community support and suddendly people started to question it. Maybe once great gaming company and maker of Half-Life is nothing more than an old usless teflon pan?
    Steamunpowered earned a proud place in gaming history as a fine example of community grown partisanism against greed and corruption within the gaming infustry. Not even Valve could withstand it. Steampower tends to corrupt and absolute steampower corrupts absolutely.
    Now, after 10 years, a lot has changed. We have a big new gaming industry bag of issues to cover and expectation for steamunpowered to become a next level vigilant central hub for this puropse.
    Personally I would love to see steamunpowered working together with some great critical folks in Youtube and helping their work more easier to find.
    Thank you Stranded and the team for staying strong. Long live SU!!
