DLC's have their own store page. If I look at the base game store page for Civ V for example, it shows me this in the right-hand-side: If I then click on the title of a DLC in the DLC list, (e.g. Brave New World) the right-hand-side shows me which people on my friends list actually own that DLC. If your friend is already in that list, they have that ...

Not anymore. Steam sales used to run shorter, better deals for each day of the sale, called "Daily Deals", as well as 8-hour long "Flash Sales", but they discontinued that after introducing refunds. If you want to be 100% sure that it's not going to disappear, look at the end date of the sale on the game's page.

So, to be clear, crossing either threshold is not what makes your income via the steam community market taxable. That is something that will vary wildly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and across a variety of financial circumstances. You should know, however, that in many cases, income from the Steam community market is taxable well before you have ...

It's a widely known current issue, and Valve has been attempting to fix it. (Alas, to no avail so far.) There's a notice by Valve themselves on Reddit here, which includes some pointers on helping them pinpoint the issue.

You'll keep your Payday 2. The way steam works is a bit complicated. You don't buy games, you buy subs. You refunded the sub with only Payday 2 in it, but you still have the GOTY sub, and that has the base game in it too, so you should be ok.

The steam game is not just a port of the armor games version. The developers had to make architectural changes and the save file structure is completely different. Therefore you're unable to import your save file. The developers have also stated they're not adding a save import function.

That is the logo of the VR company Oculus, it means that you can play that game on the Oculus Rift. If you open the page of that game, it shows more details such as the inputs it accepts and the recommended play area on the sidebar: Also, if it were to support the HTC Vive, it'd look like this:

This question is on the forums. On there they say that you can add the game to your cart. Send to a friend. and look on your friends list. If they have it. They will not show up in the gifting list! Hope this helps!

Changing download location may work. But if you really want to make sure you can find someone in the country that has the version you want to gift you the game. Or you could just create a new account and choose the country you want during setup and then just gift the game to yourself.

After much research, it turns out that Steam adds its own libraries to the $LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, which is causing issues with the curl command finding the proper libcurl. To fix this, record what your LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is when not running through Steam, and change it for the commands in the script with something like: LD_LIBRARY_PATH="" <...

The best thing to do is go to your main inventory screen and preview them here. at the bottom will be a list of tags. if the tag "not tradable" is there, you will be unable to trade this item. If this tag is on a CSGO weapon, then it means you have only obtained it recently and the 7 day trade block on this item is still active

Depending on the region you live in it might come with one or more free games. In the region I live in, the Steam controller and Steam link are not available for buying through steam, but that doesn't stop Steam from suggesting me to buy them every day. I'm guessing, and I cannot confirm this, that if you buy yours through Steam, they'll register that ...

While it's not possible to completely stop downloads, you can limit the rate to 16 KB/s, which might or might not be exactly what you need, but it's worth mentioning.

Another option could be to try a mod Deus Ex Revision. I played both versions, original and Revision, and certainly it's worth a try. Story stays the same but Revision introduces a lot of cosmetic changes which make user experience much, much better. https://www.dx-revision.com/ (also available on Steam)
