Ah, OK... though, with the steam gifting issues, I wonder if there's any point in waiting that long... might be better we pass the gifts out earlier so people have a chance to grab a few steam sales still.

If Push comes to shove you can gift Santa and we wait a few days after Christmas to see if that problem goes away, in the mean time I tell the person who is receiving the gift the goodies that is waiting for them. If it does not work we can get you to sent the code via email. The reason we do not like that way is it adds the giver to the givee's friends' list.

Remember, external sites have their sales generally at the same time that Steam does.

Seems like I got confused and bored of waiting for the stupid Steam sale to start.

Santa has another PM.

Some of you are delivering all at once and others are giving a gift here and a gift there.

Must be nail biting for ye.


Watch your stockings, you may get a last minute surprise from Santa ;)

Grats Doug!

I got MKX (with a hell of a lot of DLC included), Kentucky Route Zero and That Dragon, Cancer myself. Been enjoying the first two heaps and just started downloading the later.

I got Factorio and GTA V...
GTA has to wait for my downloads to tick over so I can get it without being capped :( (Not till Jan 10th)

And Factorio has been awesome so far, looks like so much customisation can be done

Nice score Mini!

Bummer about the download quota not being enough for GTA5 but at least you got something to look forward to.

Reminds me of when my bro and I were sharing a 512k ADSL connection with 20Gb of data. AAPT's data monitoring system had a 1 day lag time so we use to schedule all our downloads for the last day of the month. We'd do zippo net surfing on that day and just let my PC download non-stop. It ended up being a kind of competition to see if we could score more free downloads compared to the previous month - lol

I will be emailing Santa back with a key (I got the game my SS sent me through a humble stars pack and redeemed it (not even realising it was on my wishlist :) )

Better to go to someone who needs it/wants it, rather than sitting in my 'forever list of cd keys i'll never use' notepad file.

*EDIT*

wow... Santa doing work... received all those keys at midnight Christmas day! (12:40am!)

Who is your ISP can you get free steam quota? E.g like old ii-net plans.

I could also post you the files (steam backup) on dvd's if you want, always happy to help

I'm assuming you passed your gifts to Santa after midnight last night?

Santa usually works pretty quickly but then Santa may have needed sleep to tend to Santa's family today. Here's hoping express delivery tomorrow.

I've sunk a bit of time into MKX myself. Loving the campaign. Hell, even the QTEs have been fun to watch through. The game is definitely grittier than MK9 which was actually quite colourful and reminded me of MK2 the most out of the original trilogy. The colour palette for MKX feels more like the original and MK3. So looking forward to MK11.

Kentucky Route Zero also proving to be quite intriguing. Got lost driving around looking for where I was meant to go (I'm not a very good delivery man) and ended up having coffee with a bunch of hobos as well as a pash with a waitress at a diner. The game keeps surprising me.

My Secret Santa didn't take up the challenge to get me Badass Babes though - lol

In non-secret santa gaming, Due to lack of other players around in ANZ chat, I tried to do a placement Team League match in HOTS controlling two accounts (since you need to be paired up in a team of 2, 3 or 5 to get into a placement match). The players I was paired with thought I was botting... in reality, my laptop was chugging badly and it was enough work to keep attacking and defending than have to worry about typing a message and getting flamed for playing two accounts simultaneously. But it's a pretty sad state for gaming for people to assuming botting when something looks a bit odd. Would have thought that if one of two accounts takes turn standing still regularly that it wouldn't be a bot at the controls and likely a single player jumping between the controls of each account.
