Steam quests

  • 1

For me quests changed yesterday, and they were to play 1 hour of Dorfromantik, Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt, and Apex Legends. Today the games are Dorfromantik, Dota 2 and Portal 2. Is that a bug, or were rules changed from 3 weekly quests to 1 weekly and 2 dailies?

games were changed, because users complained about problems with the games, but for me they looked okay like 16 hours ago

Thanks. I had no problems as well (aside from Steam f-ing up installation process and my PC barely able to play them lol)

yeah, only issue I'm having atm is steam detecting my games so I can start the quest. Tried lauching them for 20 mins, still no dice. Maybe try again later.

Yesterday website did not see Apex, but after 2 hours it was ok.

I'm just really glad I didn't waste the time downloading/installing the 100GB of Apex Legends for a quest that isn't there anymore.

Barely worth it even for an active quest. File sizes are getting ridiculous.

Agreed, the download/install size of games is just obscene these days.  But that's not Alienware's fault.  I know they're trying to meet requests of the community on which games they feature in the quests and it's just not possible to please everyone.  People are asking for games that are popular, games with smaller install sizes and lower spec system requirements, games that are free-to-play, and a greater variety in the types of games.  I don't know how many, if any, games meet all those criteria.  I think that's part of why they made the thread asking the community for suggestions on games they'd like to see: if anyone out there can name some games that will satisfy everyone, they want to know.

No need to have a game that meet all criteria, there 3 choices atm so AWA could go for a low specs F2P, a middle spec good game and a high specs popular recent game. They could also add more choices as 3 games is very limited.
