I have 2 PCs at home and I must buy the game for each one separately? This is lame.

Well it counts as 2 people. They don't care if you have 2 or 9000 PCs, still 1 key per account, however you can copy the local files so you don't have to download on both

My family still buy 2 times, too. For me and my brother. The game bond to account, not pc. And I didn't have any problem. Steam Always have the sale

That's STEAM.. And Valve, owners of STEAM...

And the only way to see or use a game on STEAM on more than one computer is to have the account on both computers because that is the only way STEAM will allow use on more than one computer or device. Here is where they draw the line as mentioned above. When you log in from one computer you get on the account and can play, browse, etc.. As soon as the second computer tries to log into the account.. BAMB!!! First computer is booted out and believe it or not I have seen them block both computers from the account until you contact them to clear up what was happening because they treat it as someone trying to hack your STEAM account.

Yeah. This happened to me.. In my case it was a good thing because I had forgotten that I had logged into the account and left it connected. I was in the process of setting up a second computer with what was supposed to be a new STEAM account and accidently put in my original account information and clicked the go button before I realized it. They where very cooperative and unlocked my account right away.. Razzing me for my blond moment the whole time..

In fact they have a monster sale going on right now due to the holidays. Better hurry! Some discounts end earlier than others!!
