I say Shadow Warrior 2... bloody fun co-op ;-)

Or we get Battleborn because it's cheap.

And when do we need to have all this stuff bought by again? Coz the next (anticipated) steam sale doesn't start for another 5 days:

Else, we just hop onto cdkeys.com I guess.

And it begins!

Good luck with making your giftee happy guys and gals :-)

Steam sales can't come around fast enough.

EDIT: I should mention that who ever has got me, don't try looking through my games list in steam to figure out what I like and surprise me with something not on my wishlist... there's a lot of free crap in there I've never played!

Oooooh! I like spreadsheets :D

Currently I'm wondering if I'll go quality over quantity. Already done an analysis based on cdkeys.com prices and my giftee ought to score well out of this if that's the baseline. Lets see what Steam sales will add to his/her good fortune.

Also, top effort for working on this till late on a Saturday night!

Is it just me, or is the Christmas sale looking later than usual? I thought it was usually going the week before Christmas

Yeah, I would have expected an xmas sale to be a full week before xmas, not 2 or 3 days before it. But then the bulk of my Steam Library are from freebies and Humble Bundle so I don't know the exact timing of steam sales year to year... just that there's one around xmas.

Anyway, I'm happy for gifts to be sent out even after xmas if it means people can buy during the sales and give a bit more for the amount they were going to spend... but you'd expect that from a Humble Bundle addict - lol

ATTENTION!

Steamy Secret Santa may be broken forever! Steam has changed the way they do gifts and it has broken how we deliver presents. Gifts sent to one account can never be redeemed. I have set up Steam Guard on the account and so I am assuming that as soon as I do that it will allow me to save them as gifts to me inventory, but I honestly have no idea. I bought a game on the Santa account and gifted it to my own account and I was able to library it but I cannot get it to work on Santa. I think there is a fifteen day Steam Guard window.

If anyone has any ideas shoot them my way. One of you sent me a game and I accidentally added it to my library because of this stupid system. The game has since been purged from my library and I have bought the game again and sent it to the Santa account (again, same problem as before).

At this stage I am going to just have the gifts sit there and inform the users that they have gifts for them that I will give to them once the Steam Guard check duration has passed.

Steam make this harder and harder each year.

I would stick to codes, and from third party websites (the latter is just because F Valve and their BS -- have you SEEN the new support? I could not create a ticket if I was on fire and they had all the water).


Gah…

Yowzas!

Well this is disappointing. I doubt whoever has me will be able to find too many of my games on third part websites.

I thought the issue was only with trading gifts where the 30 day waiting period applies?

You cannot gift a game to someone if they own it. Unless you can trade it to them. I have never done trading. But trading needs to be live, yeah?

Fair enough. ALso - one idea - go here https://isthereanydeal.com/#/page:user/ ... port/steam, sign in, and add your giftee's wishlist - you can then see the best Steam/3rd party (legit seller) deals.

Theory: It may also just be specific games that may not be able to be added to your gift inventory (just a guess, I am grasping at straws now)…

I'm happy to purchase keys from a third party site and PM to Pinothy/Santa as well. Just need to make sure it's a global key I guess. Might limit the number of Indie titles one can buy though.

Stupid question but when do we need to have the codes to santa by? I can't see a date on the sign up thread.
