It's a damn ugly hat. I'll stick with my red bandana for Heavy, thank you very much.

Decided to pick up Amnesia on the praise it got here. Picked up Under-garden too because I liked they demo. Their evil plan to sell me games has succeeded.

I read someone on the Steam forums bitching that this thing is just ploy to get people to buy the games.

it's a damn good plan, sure they give out 100 games to the top prize and 20 free games every 2 days, but out of the millions of steam users, say at least half of them all bought the games they have listed, every single one of them, it makes up for what they give away easily.

and it helps their sale numbers to show to other investors and publishers/developers to list more games on their service.


plus it isn't any different from any other contest/lottery, most have some form of payment you have to give before entering. This at least gives you something in return other than just GIVE ME MONEY like the casinos/lotteries do. so if you win, awesome, if you don't, cool still that you hopefully only bought the games you wanted and didn't waste it on crappy games.

yah probably, most of the ones I got I already had from the games I owned. Like the Magic the Gathering one.

It's mostly just the achievements, it just sees if your account has it.

But since it's every 2 days, there will probably be at least 7 free objectives.

I would scream if I won the 100 free games, hopefully you don't have to choose all at once and can do it over time, I would get all my new releases over steam instead.
