I aplologize if this has already been posted, searched forums and couldnt find a steam thread so thought id start one.

If you use steam for gaming then maybe we could start a steam community group or post your username for adds.

This looks to me like some sort of MSN - am I way off?

My brother plays Warcraft frozen throne every day and he talks to his friends on MSN before entering the game.

How does this Steam work? I want to tell him about it smile.gif

It's not exactly like MSN.. Some games nowadays are "steampowered", which means that you install them and register them on Steam, and then you don't need the CD anymore.. Ever tongue.gif

You just click the game on Steams "Games" list, and click "Play" (or "Install" if you're on a different PC) and your friends can see what game you play and which server you play on smile.gif

Kinda lame explanation, but that's pretty much the basics of it tongue.gif

Aha I got it smile.gif

Just one question - Do you need to buy the game directly from them or you can somehow install it ?

The reason why I ask is because most of these guys play games that they downloaded from torrents and then used some sort of key generator to get serial key.
My brother doesn't do it since we have 2 original Warcraft games (one bought in Greece and one I brought from Boston smile.gif

Sounds like cool service anyways smile.gif

I guess you need to buy the game since you need a legit CD-key, but not always directly from them. Some games you find in the store are Steampowered as well wink.gif

yes, also it provides a community, allowing groups to arrange events wether they b in game or out. It also provides MSN like chat and voice chat features.

I don't know if it works with Warcraft, though.. I think it only works with games that's released by Steam.. I can't be sure though tongue.gif

You can activate the game on steam by trying in your serial number if you already own a copy that is avaliable to download. You can also add shortcuts to non steam games to your games list.

Hacked serial keys wont work as they get tied to the first username to activate it. And generated keys wont match the servers avaliable list of keys

Just wanted to warn you guys, I posted my nickname to steam here yesterday, and then after a while some guy added me as friend and wanted me to join their group called Infinity Gaming or something. He gave me a link and it went to a website that looked like steam, had steam.community (or something) on the adressbar and everything, and the site asked my steam nickname and password. Apparently, this site was a fake steam site, and they (who ever they are) got my nickname and password. Today, when I try to logon to steam, it says my nickname and password are incorrect.

Bottom line is, I lost all my games, friends list etc.

It's not that big of a deal though, since I only bought a couple of very cheap games from steam, and every other game I have the retail copy of. So I can install my Orange Box, Counter-Strike etc. with them. But this still pisses me off quite a bit.

I don't think that the person who added me was from this site, I think they (the ones who did this) have some bots googling the internet for steam nicknames or something. But if you get added as a friend on Steam by a suspicious person, be careful.
