I've got a few gift copies of games on Steam that have been sitting in my inventory for a while that I want to get rid of:
SpaceChem and its DLC 63 Corvi
4 copies of Talisman: Digital Edition

Is anyone interested in them ?

Am I the only one who for one second thought this was going to be about porn?

Not unless Steam's gone off in a completely different direction in the last couple of years.

You can get adult-content stuff there, I wanna say. Stuff like Fallout nudie-mod packs. I'm not 100% on that though.

I thought you could get those anywhere on the net. But, I don't actively look for them anyway.

You've gotta be picky. It's like hookers, you can get one off the side of Old Nasty Highway or you can take some time and money and find a real nice one... not cheap, but guaranteed clean.

That said, now that I've thought about it a little more, I don't actually know that Steam carries much in the way of mods. But there are plenty of forums and sites where you can find such material, more or less free for the taking.

The Steam Workshop is community based content. For some games it's just maps and skins. Others also have mod support through it. That depends on how supportive to mods the publisher is though.

Not all games have steam workshop either.

Porn seems to be the one thing Valve manages to successfully keep off the Steam store. Though I've heard that there are some porn games with a SFW version up there and a link to a nude patch stickied in the games forum.

For everything else, Valve doesn't want to manually curate the store. Hence the flood of achievement spam games.

Sent, along with the DLC.

We don't have too many walking Old Nasty Highway round here. That probably because they're all at Old Nasty Truck Stop, or even Older, Nastier Strip Club. :lol:

Valve has recently changed their TOS for that, October 2017 IIRC. Offering links to de-censor patches/manuals is now against the shop rules.
The patches are usually still offered on the developers website though.

Porn?
Like the mix of youtube and porn (won't say the link, don't remember if that is against the rules)? Why download anything?
Lot's of ads, but thanks to pi-hole and a good selection of lists that block ads, malware and phishing sites on my network, I never see it.
My network has ad free porn. :)

On that note, I just noticed that I have an extra copy of Portal on my account. Anybody would like it?

Every rumor I've heard about it happening has been one I heard this year. But, when empty folders can be sold on Steam*, I have to wonder if Valve is enforcing any of their rules.



*And can't be refunded, because you can't refund a game with 0 playtime and you can't get playtime on a game that doesn't have an executable to run.

I'm just not letting this one go. I ran it by insane redhead and her crazy ass agreed that this about porn. So it is.

The same crazed redhead who believes in chemtrails, 9/11 hoaxes, and the Illuminati? Yeah...

She is not the chemtrail girl. That girl is Special K, she is whacked as a weed, and lives directly under me and one south. We're also both night people, so I kind of see a lot more of her than I probably should. IR does think the moon landing was faked, though. I don't call her Sane Redhead for some good reasons.
