I actually like it. Being part of a beta means that you can cooperate in the game's development and play new areas as they're released. Also, the stuff that usually gets put on early access tends to be radically different from stuff that normally gets released, so the devs could use the extra income to push them over the line. That being said, it does suck thinking that the project you invested in could get cancelled at any moment, or turn out to be a disaster in the end.

I don't know if anyone here has heard of Green Man Gaming before, but it is an amazing site that often has deals even better than Steam.

They have an insane deal on right now. For $30, you get Steam keys for:

Civ V
Bioshock Infinite
XCOM: EU
Borderlands 2
Civ IV
Bioshock
Borderlands
XCOM Complete
50% off coupon for a bunch of other great 2K games (Bioshock 2, NBA2K14, etc.)

Really tempted to get this, the only game I already own is Civ V and I can just trade the key to someone anyway.

Here's the link: http://www.greenmangaming.com/focus-on-2k/

I haven't been following Steam sales very much, but I noticed the other day that Valve announced they were allowing publishers to set their own sales. Has there been a lot more sales since then? The page says "136 specials" but I'm not sure if that's normal.

I would rather have alpha and beta versions on Steam than everything doing a kickstarter (Which means it copies something popular or it won't get funded).

Most of the Alphas/Betas are kickstarter projects.

It's still not a good idea, though, and I don't have to "get used to it". I'll just buy other games.

So, I just got back on my account, and when I checked my inventory, I found out that I had gotten not one, but TWO coupons for Pixel Piracy, which is strange. How did they get here? What are they doing in my inventory? I don't remember doing anything to get them. I never crafted any badges. So... Why?

On a side note, does anyone want to trade for them?

@UnknownNico
I'm guessing you own Terraria, and the devs want to advertise the new game they are now publishing so they sent out coupons to everyone. Getting random coupons in your inventory seems to be a new thing, I've had it happen a couple of times. A clever way to market, I suppose. On an unrelated note, I just noticed your previous post - I didn't end up purchasing the deal on green man gaming. Figured I'd spare my wallet this time.
