I’m a :horse:* and I think I have an idea what @Enki is.

*in a crab suit

But is it just me or is the celebration of Chinese New Year a new thing in “gaming communities” now? Never noticed that before and was really surprised that there was a special event for it when we were playing Gremlins yesterday. And now steam as well?
Is it because of the increase of chinese gamers in the past few years?

anyway, 新年快乐!

Thank you for the info!
I’m curious what will be on sale, I’ll probably skip and not buy anything. But I’m still looking forward. (:

And I’m this fella as well: :tiger:

Also @Vandem i think steam has been doing this for a couple of years now if i remember well, i think since 2015 or 2016?, but someone will surely correct me if I’m wrong about this.


#4

Thanks! I’ll probably buy some stuff considering that is all i do now am I right? @onLooSe :grinning:


#5

Start playing as well … collectors… gees :smiley:


#6

Might as well buy as much as i can before it gets moved to epic store.:joy:


#7

Well I do consider buying at least 51% of Valve’s share…

There was money in that wallet before the winter sale where did it go…?:thinking:


#8

I’m a :chicken: but :pig: are tasty. I would love to celebrate the Chinese New Year with my Chinese friends but alas, we are an ocean apart.

Thanks Coraline!

I think I’m rat, but it’s been a while since I checked.

I won’t complain if the Dark Souls 3 DLC is on sale, personally. I still have yet to venture into the ringed city.


#11

I’m :ox:
I wonder what stuff is gonna be on sale lool


#12
  1. thanks.
  2. I’m dumb. Your comment reminded me that I spent the last two years in China during that period, hence I didn’t notice the steam sale.

#13

Bah, I will miss the first few days… but thanks for the update.

I am a Pisces and a dog. Plus I was born in the year of the dog!


#14

Meh. They’ve introduced “tokens” that you can redeem for profile/chat things. You get a red envelope with an amount of tokens based on your spending history. The only way to get more tokens is to buy something.

I’m not fond of the the profile backgrounds nor the chat emoticons at all so i guess i’ll use my 2000 tokens to get the profile badge?


#15

What are you talking about, it’s still the year of the sloth because it never finishes


#16

PIG EMOTICONS! SO CUTE. :pig: :pig: :pig: :pig:

#17

It’s great for people who adore pigs but it’s not for me.


#18

Could save them up for 5€ off in the store.
Is there randomness in effect here? I got 4k pig coins, what about the rest of you?

Why did I get a certain number of tokens?
The initial number of tokens you received is based on previous purchases made on your account.

So looks like it depends on how much you forked out in the past.
