Let’s count the chickens now. Questions about Treasure hunting Q1: How many objectives did you score? Q2: How many times you managed to get all 4 objectives done? Q3: Did you WIN anything? Q4: Did you claim the hats? If yes, then how many and what is your opinion? Q5: How many objectives you had already completed when new hunt started? (Total, if you remember :)) Q6: How…
Okay, lets talk about Steam Treasure Hunt that is running now from 6th Dec until 20th Dec.
PS. Somebody gave a hint not to delete demo or game after completing a treasure, better delete unnecessary junk (like buggy Undergarden, where you have to change regional settings to English/Canada, wtf, man?!) after 20th Dec.
Last challenge! – 18th – 19th Dec Objectives

And now let’s look at the good offers in this week.
All of us have played Half-life 2 series through many times. Now it’s time to play it through one more time and experience the beautiful world which was reanimated by FakeFactory with his brand new FakeFactory’s Cinematic Mod 10.90 (released on 23th Oct). Latest patch is 10.94.
This mod is total graphical/musical conversion of Half-life 2 + Episode 1 + Episode 2. Everything has been turned into HD, it contains new skins for characters (select them with Character Pimper), new soundtrack, ironsight and fixes for some VALVE bugs!
To run this, you need modern hardware. Lots of memory, 64 bit OS and hard disk space. So now it is the time to upgrade your computer, I know, you postponed it for a long time already

Sorry guys for late post, I was in Latvia til Friday late evening.
Few handpicked news:
Steam has over 30 million users; CoD: Black Ops with Steamworks; Civ 5 DLC coming on 25th Oct; Trine 2 coming in spring 2011; 80% willing to play with 3D glasses; WoW Cataclysm min. requirements; Microsoft brings out “Steam rival”, it looks more like GoG + EA new EADM hybrid; Fallout Online on second half of 2012;
But now let’s see what our friends have to offer.
Good news everyone! All is good. Nobody went to war against us. We are NOT under attack. It has been simple row of unfortunate accidents….
Steam community problem started with Steam bug, which corrupted event and spammed users every time the logged in. We lost 100 users or so. Screenshots were made (as seen below in this post) and ticket to Steam was made. Steam realized 2 days later that there is glitch with event and changed status from public to private, so people can’t join and receive event-spam. Quoting:
The group was locked momentarily in order to address the issue with the events. It appears that a glitch caused the status to change in the first place. We apologize for the inconvenience.
But they didn’t know or cared to look that this event was already deleted, at the very same day. So they wanted to protect users from this glitch that wasn’t there anymore. But this isn’t the end of the bad luck – stranded, the community group owner, left accidentally the community and therefore lost his group owner status (as I assume). Let’s see what Steam support answers. I have one thread running in Steam support according this and it is totally positive experience.
Original post as follows:
Shortly as Dragoon said: In the last 30 days we had phishing attack, event spam and now the steam group was taken over by Steam.
Looks like all these problems we encountered here and in Steam community are escalated now to bigger scale.
The text is saying:
Type Changed – October 20th @ 4:47am – Group was changed into an invite-only group by %actor%
Group Locked – October 20th @ 4:47am – Modifications to the group have been disabled by Support
Yo, dudes, I thought that I add some news also here, so let me know, If you like it or not
New Duke is coming soon; Valve is making DotA 2; Valve will not start trade-in service; Pirates of Carribean RPG cancelled; Dragon Age 2 pre-orderers get free content, screenshots; fan made Duke Nukem will be released for free, video; Blizzard bans SCII gamers (also single player), who uses 3rd party hacks;
updated: GetGames & Gamesplanet deals
The most waited and resurrected game is now on our doorstep. After 12 years of failures and money loss it is finally coming true. The game is developed by Gearbox, the maker of Borderlands and other cool titles, and should come out early 2011 (Valve time).
Lately Gearbox wanted to distribute Duke Nukem Forever demo only for Borderlands Game Of The Year edition buyers, but now is announced that Duke demo will be free for everyone. Borderlands GOTY will be released on Friday, so this means most likely that DNF demo is not ready yet :)
This post contains video, pictures and a poll at the end, so have fun :)

You may confirm it by yourself: http://www.stopbadware.org/home/reportsearch
Gamespot revealed scary statistics – only 15% PC and 6% of console consumers buy DLCs. And this may be end of the DLCs and rise of the prices and sequels or new name with re-skinned game (if you know what I mean … ;D)

Industry-research group finds small minority download premium content via Xbox 360, PS3, or Wii over three-month period; 15 percent got content online via PC or Mac.
