Where to buy games other than Amazon?

by ishkabibbel2000. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

EDIT: I live in the U.S.

So there are a few games that I've had my eye on but I never seem to be able to find them in stock on Amazon. I'm sure some of it is because of the rise in board game popularity due to corona, but I'm also learning that some of it is because these games may be KS exclusives, sold only through the developer, or even out of print.

Specifically, some of the games I'm looking for are Aeons End, Apex Theropod, Runebound, Race for the Galaxy, and some others.

I'm wanting to get me a good solo deck-builder but it's darn hard to find the ones I want!

Are Xbox controllers just poorly made or is it just people here?

by [deleted]. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

I’ve heard the custom lab controllers and the elite 2 are junk which is disheartening as a new Xbox user. I plan to get two custom lab controllers, do I have anything to worry about?

Gaming on Android with PS4 controller

by MrKatastrophe. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

Looking for suggestions for games that play well with a controller. Could be free or paid, been playing a lot of ROMS lately as well, just noticed a lot of games are wonky with a controller or just dont support one at all. I hate the weird touch controls of most games so I try to play with the PS4 controller only really. TIA.

How do I restore permanently deleted account

by Curious_Person111. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

So I deleted my steam account. It has been 30 days. They emailed me that they deleted it. I was happy, I didn't like my account name and wanted to create new account. The problem is I had installed game on my deleted account. I thought I could use the game key or code, whatever you call it, again. But no, you can't use the same key twice. So now I have useless DVD and don't know if I will ever play it again. Is there anything I can do, or do I need to throw it away and buy the game again?

Does an external hard drive speed up download speed?

by omgsubway. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

Upgraded my broadband to 500mbps + just for gaming.
When downloading games though, it's at 30mbps, although the download speed says around 200, thats a lie.
I'm wondering if I buy a decent external hard drive, will games download quicker to that?

Because it says 200mbps when I'm downloading a game, but it acts like it's about 10 - 30mbps.

How to find the "primary publisher" of a board game, or to sort BGG by these?

by HeyLetsShareTheFish. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

I'm not sure if I understand the board game industry correctly, but from watching SUSD and The Dice Tower I was under the impression that Cyclades, Kemet and Inis were all "primarily published" by Matagot. BGG lists Cyclades as having 11 other publishers. If an FFG game also listed Asmodee as a publisher it'd make sense to me since Asmodee is the parent company.

It seems a lot of games have regional publishers which are in charge of their local distributions. How often does a regional publisher print their own games, versus just distribute and market games produced in a single large and foreign print run.

Perhaps I should look for whoever was the first to publish a game?

This is a general question motivated from a collectivist perspective; it's straightforward to think "Hmm, It'd be cool to have all games by Matt Leacock and Alex Pfister".

We should be able to rate Battlepass and season pass content on the steam store.

by StrengthofBear. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

It's always so toxic when developers do something people don't like, so people rate it poorly on mass to get the rating down. Instead we should be able to rate and review these battle passes individually so people can fully appreciate what they are getting themselves into.

Has anyone ever redeemed a code for a game and nothing happened?

by Thats_Bush_League. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

So, here's the deal, I own Age of Wonders: Planetfall - but I received a code for the Premium Edition, which includes the two expansions and the season pass. I entered my code and confirmed the download. Except, nothing happened.

When I launched Planetfall, it was still the base game. I checked in-game and it wanted me to buy the expansions. I went to "Manage Game" and there weren't any add-ons or DLC. I re-entered the code, but it said I'd already used it.

When I look at my Microsoft account, it show's the $0.00 purchase for the Premium Edition.

So, I tried the following troubleshooting suggestions:

- Removed my account and reloaded it (twice)

- Removed and reinstalled the base edition (twice)

- Restarted my Xbox (twice)

- Checked the store to see if it had the option to install (it doesn't, I can only purchase)

Any other tips? Has anyone experienced this before?

Anyone else annoyed by the guild tag IN FRONT of our names?

by winterxwind. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

It’s fun to play with a stack but I’m just tired of having the unremovable guild tag in front of my name every single game I play. It’s nice to be in a guild but Valve should give us the option of hiding the guild name. I don’t want a long complicated name.

Idle game with 1 hero?

by Phantom-Blue. Posted on Jun 05, 2020


I'm looking for an idle game similar to Merchant but with only 1 hero. Fantasy setting preferred. I don't mind if it's paid, less pay to win the better, but I understand it's the main model for games.

Hope you can help.

Steam and Racism

by august0086. Posted on Jun 05, 2020

Just want to share something happened yesterday.

I got a community notification from steam yesterday saying a profile i have reported previously has been taken action.

I've only reported few profiles, and I'm very sure this one is an anti-black racist profile i reported back in Jan when I was playing tf2 a lot. It's been half a year and valve decide to take it down this time,

I feel like valve's action is perfunctory, as they did this only when a protest is going on, but turn deaf ear otherwise.

As a poc, like some of you may have experienced, the online gaming experience is not very pleasant, especially in CSGO and TF2 where there's no censorship at all. There are countless times I reported players for saying racist shit and got no response at all.

I really hope valve can do something, to better the gaming experience of minority groups, not only when its the pride month or a protest going on.
