I have four unexplained games in my Steam library today. None of them have a free trial limit on them or any free trial announced. None of them are in any of my purchase history records, nor am I missing any money. They're just there. They're not bad games either.

But what the fuck.

You sure it's not a free-for-a-few-days thing? I have (had?) a few games like that in my library this morning, none of them bad.
There's no "X days left" notice on them.

Meh. I saw that when I finally logged back into Steam a few days ago. Some I bought, some I didn't remember buying. What the hell, (possibly) free games, ahoy.

WHY? Why the sodding hell would they do that?

New Dues Ex game. Pre-order advert. Turns out, even if you do pre-order, you are missing out on content.

10/10 would boycott again.
Dues Ex.
Yup.
If that was a typo, it was a really good one.

So, how much to you actually have to shell out to actually get everything? Or is that, by design, impossible to do?

I strongly suspect the rest of them will be released as pay DLC at some point, most preorder bonuses are eventually.

What amuses me more than anything else is how the "ultimate prize" is the game being released 4 days early... I guess to the sort of impatient person who preorders games maybe it is a big deal, but it just seems so silly. 4 WHOLE DAYS GUYS!!!!!!!

Would be helpful if you said what games they were.

Edit: There was a free weekend for ARK, company of heroes 2 (and maybe CoH 1), and uh.... some other game this weekend. If you logged into steam early enough they would probably still be on your steam list since it only seems to reliably remove free games when you restart it, but the free trial timer would be gone because it's over.

So if it's those games, that's probably it. You can just restart steam to get rid of them.

4 whole days to enjoy spoilers if you don't pre-order!

Total Biscuit has already put out a video about it. That was fast.

Binding machine on the fritz. Nothing new there. Had repairmen in several times last week, and they didn't help any. Thing jams as I am using it. I am looking at it too find why it may be jamming. Bossy coworker comes over, boots me away from the machine.

"The problem is that the track is too tight". Doubt it. The tape isn't even getting into the track before it jams, plus the track was just replaced with a brand new one. What does bossy do to help fix it? Takes a screwdriver, and uses the handle to hammer away at the track. I'm sure that will help.

Then she drops the damn screwdriver into the machine, and walks away. I try to get it out, but she comes back to assure me it's fine. Apparently the screwdriver will improve the machine. Somehow. So that was quite a bit of time wasted in order to fish it out.

One time my cat brought me a dead mouse.  Just like people say.  I pet her and thanked her for stopping the vermin.  It didn't seem to be bleeding on the carpet, so I turned back to my computer for a second.

I heard a soft crunching sound for about a minute.  I decided not to look until she was done.  When I did look, there was no trace of the mouse or any blood...  Just a proud, satisfied looking cat, right there on the clean carpet.

I just wish she had hunted the cockroaches too...  Well, I guess not.  Good riddance to that place.  Hot, wet, smoggy, and you couldn't walk half a mile along the sidewalk on a summer night without seeing multiple roaches.  Cities, I swear.

...You know, I think your cat may be channeling Chuck Norris.  Or the spirits of her ancestors.  Or both.

So, I've been playing poxnora for some weeks now, and its pretty damn fun, but just recently I realized that there's a card that is literally a fairy riding a corgi.

Also, an owl with a rifle.

Not a rifle. A blunderbuss. It's an owl with a goddamned shotgun.

I have no idea why it would be called a renovator, much less a pox.
Though it could be a fairly obscure reference to "regulator", as per Steven King.
Also, calling that thing a shotgun seems... technically accurate.
Which is the best kind of accurate.

Going out for more beer, I experiment.
"Okay Google" *boop* "... Play me some music"
After a second music starts playing... but it's not from the huge library I have stored...
Oh, it's Google Play streaming some Wiz Khalifa :/

Rap can be good, but this particular track is shit.

Oh well, at least this suggests that there are limits to how well Google knows me.

Edit: "Play me some Prodigy" worked better... I think it's pulling from my stored music.
Hell, for all I know I actually had that Wiz Khalifa track locally.  I have a folder from my brother, some parts of which I like.
