Your real wallet or a digital wallet? If the latter, why? It's not like it's any cheaper than paying by Credit Card.


I believe he is also including stuff in the trading market, which only accept steam wallet transactions.


yea,was referring to my steam wallet not wallet the physical object lol (which I thought should have been obvious given the context but,you know...). Also,steam doesn't have my CC anyway, using pre-paid cards instead that you can buy in stores.

I guess I can see the appeal. It's still beyond stupid that Steam ticks the "remember my payment details" option by default.

Currently if you don't want them to save your details you gotta untick the option every, single, god, damn, time you make a purchase. Those that don't care or do want their details saved don't need to do anything special.

If the default was reversed than those that don't want them to save their details don't need to do anything and those that do will only have to tick the box ONCE during the entire life of their account.

Funny story, Steam's credit payment system doesn't work in Latin America, or at least it doesn't for national cards only, so instead, all credit card transactions are made through a third party service, whose one is impossible to save your details, making you having to enter your information every single time you do a purchase. :P

Yeah, you just can't win any battle xp

That sucks.From what I read steam wallet codes and/or gift cards should be nearly region free or at least something bought from a US seller should work in south America countries so maybe that could be another option.

Weird. While the commies here banned the use of credit cards on foreign places starting in early 2015, I can remember that prior to that, there was no difference between paying directly to Valve or through Paypal (except for the latter charging a fee on our cards per transaction for no good reason at all, IIRC it was 1% or something like that. I usually paid through Paypal as I liked the extra protection layer, given that Steam itself had been breached not that long ago).

The only picky ones were Amex cards (which are generally unpopular over here, even for national purchases as only two banks issue them, and most marketplaces and PoS terminals will reject those), and even then, Steam usually didn't had major problems with our Venezuelan-issued Amex cards.

Dunno if things have changed for the worse after that, as I've been unable to buy games with my own money since then, but at least you guys now have regional pricing, which is usually good for you (exchange rates usually result in cheaper games in the Americas, unlike Euro tier where you're ripped off HARD). The glaring exception in Latam is, naturally, my country (protip: if you live in Venezuela and somehow have access to hard currency, don't spend it on Steam! Get someone elsewhere in Latin America to buy the games you want, have him/her gift them to you, then transfer them the money through other means - you will save money that way because without regional pricing, we're forced to pay USA prices)

For those wondering when you will be able to free ur RAWMz your favorite games will be available through GOG Connect... well, things aren't that easy.

Unfortunately no game has been applicable for conversion for unlimited time - every single game has been available for only a short time of window (typically one week). Miss the window and you lose: no game has ever performed twice on that list. GOG claims that this is solely on the publishers - they aren't in control here and this is the best they can do for now.

This isn't automatic either - you have to wait until the window opens for your desired game (which may not happen ever: just ask any of my "MADE IN JAPAN" games), and once it does, you have to manually reclaim your game. Once the window closes, it's over. They only convert a handful of games per month, sometimes there have elapsed months between windows! And to make things more confusing: GOG doesn't maintain an official list of Connect-reclaimable games anywhere on their site (not even on their forums, it seems). Your best bet is to subscribe to this Steam thread (which is actively maintained although it doesn't look like it is official), so you get an alert every time the magical window of deDRMization opens for your game, if ever.

The whole system sucks, thanks to publishers... but also due to GOG itself, as I feel they could put more pressure over publishers in order to give more weight to their "your games are yours forever" mission. But then, I understand the business part of it: you want people to BUY games at your store - bandwidth isn't cheap and a sudden influx of users with massive free game libraries doesn't really help to keep the lights on. So, I feel that the whole GOG Connect thing is a double edged sword.

Bundles (HIB-style, not "20 Steam keys for $1") are a better option, as you get all your bases covered from the start: you get your DRM-free downloads, AND your precious Steam keys. But then, most bundle sites don't even bother keeping their DRM-free files up to date, as they assume you're just seeking for cheap Steam keys and don't give a rat's ass over a file that is actually YOURS, FOREVER :/

Today GOG is giving away SOMA, an underwater-themed horror game. Not my cup of tea, but hey, maybe somebody here will like it.

Tomman, a lot of game devs tend to avoid publishing beta's and hotfix/minor updates to GOG/other sources of DRM Free copies. Majority of devs only release such things on Steam :/ it's especially bad since GOG has for a while now supported beta updates.

The button to claim it, wasn't working on the games page. Worked fine on the main website www.gog.com

Also applies to US, but it's not that great; the deal is only good for the first month. It's like a free trial, except not free.

The Humble Double-Fine-Presents Bundle is here, with a bunch of games published by (not developed by) the Double Fine game studio.

Unlike most publisher bundles, all the games in this bundle are available DRM-free, and all but one is available on Win/Mac/Linux (and even that one is Win/Mac).

I've got musical platformer 140 from a previous Indie Bundle and enjoyed it a lot; I'm also pretty interested in puzzle-box GNOG. Mountain and Everything look like pretty chill, contemplative experiences, while I guess THOTH, Escape Goat 2, and Gang Beasts are more... traditional games.

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

Humble Indie Bundle 20 is here. I think the most notable game so far is probably bunny murder simulator Overgrowth, the long-in-development sequel to 3D brawler Lugaru, which was in the first ever Humble Indie Bundle.

Steam needs no excuses for a random sale. But if it involves Japanese games, it's greatly welcome!

https://store.steampowered.com/sale/gws2019/

Go get your cheap Neptunias, keep enlarging your endless visual novel backlog, and now that ZUN has officially sanctioned the sale of Touhou fangames, legalize your RAWMs too!

Or you can keep giving your money to Crapcom and Konami, if that's how you roll.
