Steam has been offline for a little while now, seems like its on every continent, might be another anonymous style DDOS attack...

MOD edit by Sweep: Kotaku just posted that it's a "Power outage". Source.

@rebgav: It seems to depend on the game right now, anything that explicitly needs steam servers cant work. DOTA 2 is unplayable right now

It's slightly depressing that the removal of Dota2 from my life results in my brain turning into cardboard. I actually caught myself sitting at the computer for 5 minutes doing absolutely nothing except waiting for the steam servers to come back online. That game has turned me into a fucking automaton.

@Sweep: Seriously, you are ALWAYS playing Dota 2. I open my friends list, 9 times out of 10 you're playing Dota 2. It's almost like how I used to play LoL :)

They should just make Half-Life 3 the default for deal of the day if nothing else is chosen.

Think of all the money that is being saved now that Steam is down.

So... all those who believe the steam servers are currently being hacked, raise your hands.

@Sweep: Thanks for putting that in my mind. Think I've had enough videogame and non-videogame related services hacked. Thankfully, so many of them means I tend not to save any credit card info (but who's to say that info still isn't on some server...).

Intermittent "The Steam Store is experiencing heavy server load" errors, but at least that's something.

I feel like Anonymous wouldn't dare hit Steam, but then I'm reminded that Anonymous is often comprised of a lot of dudes who want to watch the world burn. Not always, but it seems that way sometimes.

This is very, very strange. I hope it's just a hardware failure and not something malicious.

Weird, I still managed to launch the client and can still launch my games. Just can't use the store.

Fortunately, single player games will always work under offline mode ;)
