    Getting free achievements? Should be easy to rack up the headhunter achievement by pubbing on Face this weekend :)

    With a $12 price tag, may as well say FREE FOREVER.

    Apparently people are having trouble buying the game because Steam says they own it, and therefore won't let them buy it? eh?

    It's not $12, it's €12.

    That happens every time I buy anything on Steam.
    Click Buy. Fill out purchase form. Submit. Get random error.
    I've seen Steam say things like "Contact cust srvc" to "Your card issuer has placed a hold on your credit card".
    I check my list 10min later and whatever I just bought is now on it.
    Also check my charges and they're accurate. Aside from the (false) errors, everything seems to be working.

    That's the thing. Euros have to pay $1 = 1€. Whatever you see in dollars, we have to pay in euros. Even countries who aren't part of the EU and have never used euros.

    If you're having trouble believing it, there's a 4,300 replies big thread about it on the steam forums.

    If you try to proxy around it, you'll get banned and all your game licenses revoked.

    Steam's US content servers are getting hammered. I changed my region to the phillipines and now it's downloading faster (trying to clean reinstall through steam...)

    The trial is a waste if you ask me, my net speed is 1.5mb/s and downloads at 150kb/s, so it would most likely not be done in time, plus it's an 8GB file, which would kill my bandwidth (25GB). 40% off is good though.

    Yeah but once you've "brought" it then it doesn't matter how long it takes to download.

    Yeah, that's a downside, I have 256KB/s download speed and no limits, so it's a bit better, but still. And the servers keep refusing connections. Ah well, I guess I'll still be able to try it out. 6%...
