Steam Database shows Fez, Dyad, Halo 3 and plenty of entries

There’s a tool to check what games are registered on Steam. Well, it’s mostly reliable and has leaked many games coming to the service. (PC, Steam)

I agree. If true, I'd happily play halo 3 on my laptop.
There's barely anyone on halo 3 anymore on the 360, and I could really play this when I don't have my xbox around to play halo 4.
ThatGuy2  +   1024d ago
I just hope the DLC is included cause that dlc that's required for some playlist piss me off

The only thing I find interesting about this is how PC gamers are behaving over halo 3 lool, dont get me wrong its a good game but I ran into so much Pc gamers who completely insults anyone who play console exclusives including halo 3, so its interesting to see how they all take this news on PCgamer.com if its indeed true.
pandehz  +   1024d ago

um lol

Halo is as much a pc game as an xbox game.

Combat Evolved may hav been the last savinggrace and the birth of xbox as we know it but to pc gamers it was a solid game with good mp community. Sadly it did too well for MS and well MS has been known for 1 hit wonders and this was theirs so they tore it off the pc crowd.

Now lets say killzone releases for pc well ppl will be excited but not that much. I'll want to see what it'll look like and maybe troll some ps3 fans thast all. But Halo is appreciated by the pc community and in every single sequel we look forward to it well atleast I looked forward toit and got disappointed at every turn when it never released. I have both 1 and 2

Only condition that Iwont buy Halo 3 is if MS decides t make it Windows 8 only title. Then eff off MS

Yeah. When the Big Team Battle mode became DLC only, I nearly threw my Xbox out a window. IDK if that's still the case, but it was for quite a while and I stopped playing after that.
Gamer1982  +   1023d ago
Just shows if you wait long enough nothing is exclusive on 360 anymore.. PC got Fabe 1,2 and 3 and the first Gears and seems like its getting Halo 3. All you got left is Forza.. This is clever though from MS as would make them a boat load of money to go towards producing there new console.

If this is true, then I will buy Halo 3 on Steam. I want to get rid of my 360 since I barely use it anymore. I hope Microsoft fully integrates LIVE with the PC, because I would like to be able to play the games that I downloaded for my 360 on my PC. Of course those games would have to be ported to PC (Gears 1 which is already on PC, Gears 2 and Halo: Reach).
aliengmr  +   1024d ago
They tried to integrate LIVE on PC and forgot they actually had to support it, so it failed and they pretty much gave up.

MS just need to stick with the XBOX and windows and leave PC gaming to those better able.

"They tried to integrate LIVE on PC and forgot PC Gamers weren't foolish enough to pay for live fees like their console counterparts and told MS to kick rocks.. "

N0S3LFESTEEM  +   1023d ago
I played this game to death 4 years ago... why would I want to do it again.
Temporary  +   1023d ago

The PC community would NEVER pay for a service like Live for their PC. Paying to play their purchased games online is a slap in the face.
Raoh  +   1021d ago

That is exactly my point. MS tried it and the pc community fought back. MS in turn dropped the fees. Console gamers are usually asking to pay more or wishing sony would charge for online just so their xbl gold accounts can be justified.

It's odd to me to see the xbox support so strong.

Bad econony but embarrassing the online fees.

Buying a product that has no hdmi or wifi but then buy the upgraded model a year or two later when it should have had it from the beginning.

RROD, before the 3 year warranty ms denied the issue and many people bought replacement consoles only to have those fail on them as well. Not to mention disc scratching with launch models.

Loud fan noise.

Horrible business practices that actually stifle competition.

Propitiatory hard drives and a sneaky move making the audio jacks in the controllers 2.5mm instead of the standard 3.5mm so that people would be compelled to buy ms hardware.

A wall app garden.

An online fee for services offered for free everywhere else.

Not allowing free content offered by developers and publishers forcing them to either charge for the free content or not offer it at all to the 360 platform.

All the things people say they hate about Sony and Apple are welcomed by the xbox community.

The xbox gamer is truly and odd consumer.
FlyingFoxy  +   1024d ago
Played it on 360 and don't see the hype, what's so good about it? i found it stale. shooting at things with shields for ages to wear it down, especially boring in multiplayer.. To quote duke nukem, power armor is for p*****s.

But being serious, i didn't find it that good.. Half Life series is a lot better, i think Left 4 Dead 2, Soldier of Fortune 2, Killing Floor are much much more enjoyable online.

I bet Halo 3 won't be rated as high as it was on 360 either. I feel the series is highly overrated.. Half Life 3 will completely blow it out the water when it's announced probably this year.

I've only played Halo 1 and 3 and I hated both. Mindless shooting at childish aliens with force shields.

I liked Halo at one time, after halo 2 I just got bored of it though. Not that it wasnt a decent game, just not the best of its genre. The game runs on hype.
adorie  +   1024d ago
Hah! I'd buy Halo 3 if it was released on Steam.

I wonder how good it would look over the Xbox 360, on PC?

@ Qrphe

I'm a PC gamer at heart so I know full well about the m&k advantage, but have you ever watch a 'fps on console' tournament game like halo or black ops, they are not as far behind as you might think it terms of going up against m&k. Obviously its an extreme example as they are pro gamers, but it is possible to become very good on a gamepad.

Even if Halo 3 was unoptimized ported Hell for the PC. It would run at 60+ fps these days easy on that engine it had. I personally have high hopes for Halo PC future. I enjoyed Halo PC 1000 times more than Xbox Halo 1. I hope the same can happen with Halo 3. New custom maps, mods, and player stuff in the game would be awesome.

This likely means Microsoft is looking at using STEAM and Origin to sell its games while also pushing their Xbox Live PC service inside of its own games. Might get something similar to Uplay or battlelog popup with Xbox Live marked on it before we get to launch the game.

On a positive note it means Halo Trilogy 1(1,2,3) collection might be available on Steam at some point.

Microsoft really hasn't launched many titles on STEAM, but likely they like the number of sales they have gotten from it so they might push for it more so by releasing a key franchise on there.

Wait they recently shut down servers from gamespy which is what FEAR and Halo ran on of course there is a way to get around this and all the rat servers are still online in Halo. So does this mean new Halo servers?

Would love to have the original Halo trilogy on Steam.

Halo 3, IMO its the best MP game on the 360, its a shame the playerbase is dwindling on it now....Reach and 4 have nothing on it.

Was thinking the other day, Id love MS to do 3's MP (+ Halo 2's maps) as a F2P game on the 360/720... Who knows Steam would be the perfect place for it due to it not hurting current and upcoming Xbox Halo games.

Anyway Id purchase 1-3 aswell as Fez day one if they'd ever appear :).

if you like shooting at things forever to kill it sure, in reality the series is stale and repetitive.
Gawdl3y  +   1023d ago
High player health is a good thing, as it requires more skill; you have to stay on target, and hit the shots. With low player health in games like COD, it is way too easy to just spray and hit a few bullets and get a kill.
Gamer1982  +   1023d ago
Wont be W8 only as its coming to STEAM. They will announce this at E3 no doubt.
thezeldadoth  +   1024d ago
microsoft should have done halo 4/windows 8 like they did with halo2/vista. maybe they still will.
FriedGoat  +   1024d ago
Yeah, continue the trend of forcing people to buy the crappest OS if they want to play halo. I'll just wait for the windows 7 patch or just wait until windows 9 when they realise people want their desktop to be primary, not secondary to a crappy casual touch interface.
thezeldadoth  +   1023d ago
nobody is forcing you to do anything. It would be a secondary option aside from playing it on 360, they wouldn't have to port it at all if they don't want to. Secondly, a lot of games run faster on windows 8, it boots faster, and after a few days of tinkering, its not even very different than using windows 7. It just has a stigma attached to it and most people that complain about it haven't even used it.
FriedGoat  +   1022d ago
I have it on one of my PC's. I was just saying, they force you to use metro as default, There is no option to change it. ITS FORCED.

As was halo 2 being a VISTA+ only title when it wasn't necessary.

You can pretend that Microsoft aren't into slimy business practices all you want, but they are, and thank GOD nobody is buying windows 8, teach them a damn lesson to mess with my desktop.

PS, I don't want to have to "tinker" to get my computer to function like a PC not a F-ing tablet.
DivineAssault  +   1024d ago
why buy the nextbox when steambox will have damn near all its games? Idk if MS can innovate or get enough exclusives to survive the nx gen battle.. we will see i guess..

I used to love 360 when they had exclusives like Lost odyssey, tales of vesperia, bioware titles, platformers like the launch game kameo, etc.. After it went to kinect only exclusives with halo here gears there, i was done with them.. I paid for XBLG for 3 years & gave up.. Perfect dark was better than the crap rare puts on kinect.. Im sony only now & until they get exclusives i like again

I hope they rethink this , but if they must move forward I hope it a Windows8 exclusive thing sold Thur their game store on the OS. why help that fat bastard make money when all he did was bad mouth the OS before release & now they want to help him make money off their product I say to hell with Tubby .
