List of megathreads on reddit for discussion:

Unreal Gold now FREE on Steam & GOG for limited time!

It’s the 20th Anniversary of Unreal! This classic FPS game is now free on Steam and GOG. If you’re too young to remember this, this is from the guys who made Fortnite. Grab the game either on Steam or Good Old Games or… both places ;-)

Will GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) affect Steam?

The GDPR regulation is almost here. After May 25th all companies that opearate in European Union are bound to respect the new laws and our privacy.

Steam is going to need to get consent from EU individuals to obtain and store personally identifying information (like name, address, phone number, email etc). This should be performed by having a user “opt in” as under the GDPR regulations “consent cannot be assumed”. From now on every single company has to communicate in a clear and understandable way why the want our data and what are they going to do with it (or won’t do), how they protect it, where do they keep it etc.

Steam GDPR, Steam alternatives

If you’re an EU citizen here are your GDPR rights:

  • Ask what information is held on you and obtain copies of your information

  • Ask if your data has been passed to any other 3rd party or affiliate and obtain their details

  • Right to be forgotten – Request that all (or some) data be removed from their system

There is no guarantees that Steam will abide those rules. Most large companies and data controllers like Google or Amazon have only chosen to update their Privacy Policies, which is not 100% GDPR compliant. We’ll see how this turns out in the following weeks.

Speaking of, our website also gathers some data like cookies, e-mail accounts (if you’ve ever join one of our giveaways, newsletter or simply left a comment etc.). From now on when you login to your account on SteamUnpowered you will have to Agree to Terms of Use Agreement & Privacy Policy. Newsletter always worked as opt in so if you’ve already signed-up for it you can always unsubscribe (look for that option at the bottom of the newsletter).

From now on you can also remove the data you’ve put in here by going into Tools>Erase personal data. To delete your account from SteamUnpowered simply go to your profile settings. If you have any other problem please send me a message on Steam.

Destiny 2 available in latest Humble Monthly for only $12!

If you’ve been waiting for an amazing offer to get Destiny 2 this is it. Latest Humble Monthly revealed it as one of the games today. You can grab it here for a really nice price of $12, you don’t even have to keep the subscription on if you don’t want to, just get it and cancel right away to keep this month’s worth of games. Although I wouldn’t, it’s an amazing offer each time :-)

Microsoft Store: Cloud saves corrupted? You’re out of luck!

There’s a pretty interesting topic on /r/windows10 today. Someone is having problems with Superhot VR edition. Basically his savegame got corrupted somehow and unfortunately the broken file is already up in the cloud.

What doest that mean? According to Microsoft support you have to “play the game again”. Ouch.

On Steam whenever you’re having problems with syncing your saved games the program actually asks you if you want to use the local saved games or the cloud ones. But not on Microsoft store, if something goes wrong you’re screwed.

You can read more about this problem here and see more of those screenshots here.

Unreal Engine 4: Paragon content released for FREE!

I’ve always liked Paragon, since the early beta that I’ve tried, it’s basically a MOBA game in 3rd person created by Epic Games, the creators of the good old Unreal and Unreal Tournament series. Turns out Epic is now shutting down Paragon (we’ve known this for a while now…) and recently they’ve decided to update the Unreal Engine with content from Paragon absolutely for FREE!

Paragon cancelled

Epic Games has released twelve million dollars of content from Paragon, Epic’s high-end action MOBA, for free to all Unreal Engine 4 developers. The assets encompass 20 AAA-quality characters and over 1,500 environment components from Paragon.

You can grab the Paragon content by going here and read what’s new in the latest Unreal Engine 4 update here. More Unreal Engine news coming today on GDC 2018. More info on the official website – watch the official YouTube channel.

The free time will include full list of 26 heroes and 16 maps. Available game modes are: Quick Play, Custom Games, and the Arcade.
