Change of subject

Had anyone else noticed the Valve own brand games updating about five times a day, recently? I think it may actually be something to do with save games on the Cloud. But it's frakking my non valve games up the wazoo. They kep crashing and every time they do there's avalve game mid-update with this guilty look on its face and its pants around its ankles.

Weird, I have HL2 with episodes and Portal currently installed and they haven't done anything like that.. then again, I haven't used cloud at all if that happens because of it.

I think something may be broken. I don't save to the cloud unless I have to. And of course I DON'T!

HL2 Deathmatch and Team Fortress 2 is updating regularly (almost daily) for me. So it's not just your computer.

Funnily enough I did exactly the same thing over the weekend. It's not so much inconvenient, as creepy.

I have Portal 1+2 currently installed, but I haven't noticed them updating much, if at all. I had 5 other games update just yesterday though.

Bought 3 games from sale.

Need for Speed: SHIFT
Need for Speed: Undercover
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

I think I should get a wheel and some pedals, but driving with keyboard hasn't slowed down me yet. :)

One odd thing I noticed today was the small icons on my Steam Library were gone after I reinstalled the client. Can't find any option to enable those either. Anyone know how you can turn them on ?

In the upper lefthand corner of your library which view are you on?

I have the "Details" view and managed to find the setting for icons, it was under the plus sign at top left.

Steam games keep crashing.

Obsidian gets enough stick for instability issues without being balmed for Steam foulups. Why the **** dd steam have to go with Cloud, which strikes me as the obvious villain here. I can only assume that opting out isn't actually opting out properly and is funting some key files.

Gabe would have to take on a diet then.


Insanely wealthy or not, Gabe should go on a diet now. He's wealthy but certainly not healthy.

It's too late.

Gabe is hiring new staff, among them "Food service" and "psychologist". Poor, poor Gabe.

I especially liked this insightful comment from user 'neverko' on that site: "Valve can eat a bowl of smashed arseholes until they come out with a new Half-Life episode/game. I don't care about any of the other things they're doing, least of all Steam and hats for retarded morons."

Today is a good day for us around here, it seems. GOG has their D&D sale. Steam has Alpha Protocol for $2.
