Nearly a year ago I mentioned that Sale Prices would be showing up soon on the Steam Calculator I host here. "Soon" happened to be in Valve Time, so I'm happy to say that it's finally released. With the latest Christmas sale I got my butt in gear and implemented tracking sale prices. You should see them along regular prices as well.

Enjoy!

Valve erroneously VAC banned several thousand Modern Warfare 2 accounts over the past week due to an error or some such. In addition to unbanning those accounts, they've given each affected player a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2 (if they didn't already own it) and a second copy to gift to a friend.

Stay classy Valve.

2K Games and Valve today announced an agreement to power all PC versions of the highly anticipated Sid Meier's Civilization V with many of Steamworks' features and offer a special Digital Deluxe Edition via Steam. Customers who pre-order the regular or Digital Deluxe editions of Sid Meier's Civilization V on Steam will be rewarded with a free map pack when the game launches in fall 2010.

Sid Meier's Civilization V players will enjoy the benefits of the Steamworks' features included in all PC versions, such as auto-updating, Steam Achievements, downloadable content, ability to access from any computer*, multiplayer matchmatching and more.

*In supported countries


OK, so it doesn't say anything about being a Steam exclusive, but as far as I know, the boycott of Steam by other Digital Distribution methods is still in effect since Modern Warfare 2 used Steamworks. I guess it's really working out for them, funneling more business Valve's way.

I'm not holding my breath though.

So enough worlds colliding, when is "The Passing" coming out? Well... if it was coming out next week we would say right here - Left 4 Dead 2's The Passing is coming out next week and we will be updating the blog next week with more news on the release. There you go.

valve time,


The end of March is upon us, and it looks like Left 4 Dead 2's DLC will be delayed, according to Shacknews.

The Passing sees Left 4 Dead 2's survivors meeting up with the original Left 4 Dead cast--three of them, anyway. New golf club and M60 weapons will be added as well as multiple new game modes, a new 'Fallen Survivor' special infected and a 'Witch Bride.'


Meanwhile, there are plenty of really awesome custom campaigns you can download and play. I've played 2 evil eyes, Fort Noesis and an unfinished campaign set in a jail. They're all of excellent quality and a lot of fun to play though. 2 evil eyes was a bit of a miss-mash of things from the official campaigns though.

Voodoo Extreme is reporting that Epic has teamed up with Valve to include Steamworks as part of the UE3 licence from now on at no extra charge. That means Steam Cloud, Friends List integration, Steam server browsers and all that other good stuff.

Full article after the break.

It's confirmed, Steam and Source games are coming to the Mac. I wonder if the purchases you made on an account on Windows carry over to the Mac port as well. For Valve games I'd assume so, but I don't know what other developers will eventually plan.

Is it really that hard to make an all-round strategy
game with realistic results, gameplay, and can be
modified to be used in fps, and in rts as an
overlooking view.

This is all well and good, but why has no media asked

Updated the original post with that video. I dunno, I
think it was in poor taste personally. But if you
don't have any money for advertise I guess you do what
you need to do.

I actually liked the publicity stunt. I watched the
live video of them this morning in their cult robes.

I'd be surprised to see it get a client, unless that
client is optional. One of the selling points of GOG
that they kept going on about was that you didn't need
a client. I'd be even more surprise...
