    Launch Steam as admin? Where would I find the exe of Dirt2 itself to run as admin? I have UAC disabled, if that matters.

    Is l4d included in l4d2? Will I able to co-op with others that don't have l4d2?

    all of the steam apps run with a switch. just create a shortcut on your desktop of the demo, and run that as admin.

    edit: hmm seems the shortcuts point to some online runner now or something. not sure this will work

    Sounds like you need to update Games for Windows Live (yeah I hate it too:banghead:)

    Try updating or if that doesn't work try uninstalling then reinstall maybe:toast:

    Allow me to say: meh.
    Also, I had The Witcher on my cart waiting for the last day to buy it at 5,50€ or something, and now they doubled the price. What the hell? :(

    I changed the title of this thread and made it a sticky so you all can update this with Steam deals and sales.
    Please post deals/sales here instead of starting new threads when there is a new Steam sale.

    Makes my life easier. :toast:

    Eh I didn't really like it. Played it for ten min... But thats just me. I think for the price they have it at now its finally equal to the value of its gameplay.

    Do many of you use Stardock's Impulse digital ditribution for games?
    I can add it to the title and you can include their regular deals in here if you want.
    Other suggestions welcome. :toast:

    Would be pretty sweet to have a giant sticky like this for steam and co. I visit steam pretty regularly, so can always update.
