Steam
 
I created a Steam group for ConsoleCity. Anyone that's interested in joining, post your SteamID in this thread. Perhaps the group will encourage some CC matches and such.

I usually only play Dystopia on steam and not much else though. I will be playing the Insurgency beta 2.0 tomorrow though when comes out.

I'm still thinking about getting tf2.

Sorry... but what is Steam? I have heard and, or seen other threads but never read them. Can someone direct me to a site that covers the subject?

Thanks.

I'm sure the link Rookie pasted explains it pretty well, but on a basic level it's a lot like Live! in that you can maintain a friends list, download updates for your "installed" games, check out news/media related to your games, etc... It also acts as a store for PC games. Various publishers (not just Valve) put their games up on Steam for you to purchase/download, no retail copies necessary. The games you purchase/install are all tied to your Steam account, so if you change machines, or want to play at a buddy's house, you can re-download the game onto another PC (as long as you're logged in as yourself when you d/l and play).

I actually just got into messing around with the Community features of Steam recently after I purchased The Orange Box, thus the creation of this thread. :)

Okay, I'm home.

Is it my Steam contact e-mail you need, Viper?

Whatever I can use to look up the account. For some peeps just the "SteamID" has worked, for others I needed the email, as Steam couldn't find them by their ID (perhaps because they have their profile set to private?)

in most cases its because people are actually giving you their chat name in steam thinking its the id. when the id is totally separate, some dont know their actual steam id, because all they used it for was to sign up to steam and never used it for anything since.

Noodle November 24th, 2007 05:49 PM

That may be the reason why viper couldn't find my profile by the name I gave him. My account name is different from the community id.

Old Fart Gamer November 24th, 2007 06:51 PM

My Steam ID is "auldpharte".

RookieCAF November 24th, 2007 08:04 PM

RookieCAF I play a round of Red Orchestra once in a blue moon...

Viper November 24th, 2007 08:41 PM

Rookie and OFG added, and invited.

Old Fart Gamer November 25th, 2007 09:41 AM

Invite received and accepted.

Anyone playing Call of Duty 4 via Steam? I thinking about getting it through steam if it supports friends list, stats, and voip and stuff. Just curious if anyone else is playing it.

VampMan December 4th, 2007 08:53 AM

http://steamcommunity.com/id/Parabola is my community page if you can add me from that.

Korr March 10th, 2009 09:19 PM

Thought I would kick this old thread up.

Steam id: Korranator

Why invite only, and why not sticky ed?
