Thanks. There's a few games I've got on my wishlist, hopefully they'll be discounted heavily.

I've got 18 pence in my Steam wallet. :o

SteamSpy is shutting down due to new T&C.

Interview with Eurogamer:

And I'm guessing you've had no correspondence with Valve?

Sergey Galyonkin: No. My previous experience with Valve is that they don't answer any emails.

Have you got any kind of relationship with them? Before this point, have you talked to them about Steam Spy at all?

Sergey Galyonkin: Before launching Steam Spy, I used to work with Valve because I worked for a company that released a couple of game on Steam. Back then, it was way before Greenlight started, they were quick to answer. But after Greenlight happened, they stopped replying.

When I launched Steam Spy, I was met with complete silence. I've only received one email related to Steam Spy from them.


WTF is Valve problem. They are a company - fucking act like one and not like a pissed off teenager !. Valve and Steam are slowly beginning to annoy me. If other digital stores did aggressive sales like Steam - I am not that brand loyal to stick with them. They are essentially a shop now.

I only really used Steamcharts, which tracks concurrent players, no idea if that is going to be effected.

Into the breach on iPad while watching junk tv.

Witcher 3 on the toilet.

Civilisation in bed.

Same reasons people like off screen play on WiiU/Switch.

I suppose if the game offers on screen touch support but if it needs mouse and keyboard and/or a controller it's no good trying to balance all that on the toilet. Recipe for disaster

Does it work ?. How do a pair a controller to your phone ? Seems you need an adapter

I don't have an Android device that I can try it with unfortunately. Will definitely be giving the iOS app a whirl.

Slay the Spire in the garden sounds great although I'm curious how the whole controller thing will work.
