Win a free PC Game
In September I will be giving away 2 free PC games. From right now until the end of August suggestions are being accepted on what the value of the prizes should be.
[ame=http://www.elgms.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3675]Win a steam game in September 2009 - Forums on console and pc computer games[/ame]
If you play computer games, then you might be interested in this. Instead of the prize being one set game. You can pick from over 1,000 PC Game titles. Some of the titles include Call of Duty, Left 4 Dead, Quake, Doom, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike,,, and hundreds of others.
I'll have to check that out. My steam account got hijacked (hacked and stolen) a few months ago and I lost like $200 in games. I setup a new account and all I have on it is Counter-Strike Source, the best game ever.
Thanks for the link :)
Phishing steam accounts seems to be pretty popular. Steam has put a new security feature in place. If you make any changes to your account, you have to confirm the changes through email. And that includes changing your email address.

I probably have $300+ of games in my steam account - First my wife bought me the half-life platinum package in a retail box, it contained - half-life 2, half-life 1, opposing force, blue shift, counterstrike:source, day of defeat. Then I bought the orange box, left 4 dead, team fortress classic,,, and a few others. Plus the other non-valve games like Painkiller - black edition.
If your interested in the contest, go ahead and register and I will send an email out to all forum members right before it starts.
