I can say with almost complete certainty that it would be against the terms of service to purchase an account. They could terminate your account and block your access to the game.

Don't. It's a cheeky way of them to destroy the second-hand market. :/

Ah yes, I heard about that a while ago. Seems like a quite interesting copycat act from Paradox - considering that they don't usually do these kind of games and all of a sudden there's a game with the same theme, playstyle etc of NTW. lol

It's a lot cheaper though.

I downloaded the demo. Thought I'd try it out later.

I recently bought Evoland. A friend told me about it, it's some kind of technical retrospective. It was pure lust to buy it. The game combines the graphic styles classics like Pokemon, Zelda, Diablo, Heroes of Might & Magic, etc. - the style seems to change when you progress in game. A neat idea I wanted to check out.

The few money that I have is mostly being spend on food, beer and games. Sounds healthy, I know. Devil

Yeah, that's the game. Smile I still haven't installed it yet, I think I will do today though. Mr. Green

Why? Art thou threatening me, Emperor? Napoleon

Not sure if Imperialism is the better investment to protect my health actually. Devil

Maybe it would if we were actually counting something? Razz

Good evening. Maybe everyone already knew this piece of information, but it had managed to pass me by until now (maybe because I never read the steam update news).

It seems Valve is looking to do the same thing with Steam as Microsoft originally tried to do with the new xbox: Have some sort of 'family sharing' plan.

As with the xbox, there will obviously be no requirement of actually being family with the people you share games with. It will allow you to share your library with up to ten other people. Each game can only be played by one player at a time, and the master account get a higher priority, so that any playing friend or family member will be kicked out. A warning will be issued in advance to that person, who will have a few minutes to finish/save what he is doing.

And since everyone is already used to DRM on steam: no outrage from gamers lol

Anyhow, is this something you people think sounds good? Is is something you are going to use?

Hmmm, It does sound pretty neat, I would probably use it with one or two friends. Tho I'm curious: Steam already has a pretty good position, being required for many games and broadly considered "the lesser evil" by gamers. Where is the snag?
