    It's not actually the steam account data that was compromised, so steam guard means nothing at this time.

    I like this part:

    Valve should make in-game shirts for TF2 that say "My Steam account got hacked and all I got was this lousy t-shirt".

    Trotim reads Kotaku. Everything makes sense.

    This bugs me. It's like Kotaku is putting the bug in people's heads that we need a free game from this. I'm a lot more concerned about ALL MY FUCKING MONEY than I am about a free video game. Fuck you Kotaku.

    Sony network was down for weeks. they took forever to fix it and when they did, it was down again. Valve got an attack on their forums. and potentially elsewhere. but really phpbb forums get attacked all the time, and are rather easy to cripple and collapse. its not like steam is down. so theres no reason why we should anything free out of this. Valve hasnt denied anything, nor have they made indication that they arent working on this problem. Sony denied that anything happened at first. comparing the two situations is ridiculous.

    ntm portal was just released free not too long ago, go play that if you havent.

    It is damn irresponsible for Kotaku or whoever to say "Hey, free games? Wouldn't that be nice, hint hint hint?" Kotaku generally get on my wick: they make a post applauding a man who attempted to kill a thirteen-year-old who was mouthing off on xbox live- let me type that again, with relevant bolding- they make a post applauding a man who attempted to kill a thirteen-year-old who was mouthing off on xbox live.

    Also, i havent been on spuf for months. They can have my password.

    Sorry, you're just too fast. That was one of my edit-5-seconds-after-post things... I actually do them a lot and nobody notices. :p

    To be on topic, I agree that starting the idea of free games was retarded, but I do hate everything about that brand of sites.

    Not to sound mean, but I heard he choked him to death.

    On a lighter note (though not that much seeing as tis about the hack), I'm not too worried, I just hope they get everything sorted so I can moan on the forums again, as I have really missed my daily check of the Counter Strike global offensive forums, to see if there's any news on that early october Beta.
