Oh, the humanity! Steam “Region-Locked” Games are Increasing


Steam summer sales are always a good time of the year. I mean, who doesn’t like the idea of crazy discounts on games you probably wouldn’t have bought?! But alas, it seems that this summer sale has a very foul incidious beast tauting international gamers everywhere.

Yes, THAT beast

I can’t stress enough how stupid this makes me feel. I admitted at one point that PC would be the only saving grace from region locks, but it seems even that is not sacred anymore. WHY?! Why are you doing this? What are you achieving by locking us out? Does this make you feel more manly? Did you feel chest hair suddenly grow? Are considering on buying a pipe?

At the very least they could have explained why it’s blocked. I honestly couldn’t find a proper explanation anywhere.  A simple sorry sign just doesn’t  cut it.

Editorial note: We tried to get in contact with Steam regarding the issue, but they have yet to get back to us.
