No, Steam gifts are not "region blocked" - less than two weeks ago a friend of mine in France sent me Final Fantasy VIII, no problem.
However, there is a small number of regions where, in light of recent currency changes, the prices are RIDICULOUS - the best example seems to be Russia, but there are one or two other regions where games bought INSIDE the region cannot be traded OUTSIDE the region. (On G2A Steam games from these regions appear to be listed separately.)
Trading the other way is fine - you can still send Steam gifts to your Uncle in Russia. Just don't expect him to be able to return the favor. ;)
Well, yeah, i know that (i also was gifted Don't Starve Together from the UK from a friend), i said that because i think that all we know where those keys come from (due to the really cheap price) therefore the rhetorical question. It's one of those cases where you don't write everything down because you assume everyone else knows what you're talking about.
Good morning, all!
In case it hasn't been mentioned (my apologies if it has), Amazon is currently selling Dungeon of the Endless - Crystal Pack (Steam)
for $7.99. It's normally $19.99 for this version (basically a deluxe version, base game + some goodies & soundtrack). If you like rogue-likes, or are a fan of the other Endless games (Endless Space, Endless Legend) you may really enjoy it. It's become my second favorite rogue-like, I think. Incorporates the Food/Industry/Science/Dust system (from the other Endless games) and a bit of base building into a rather interesting experience. http://www.amazon.com/Dungeon-Endless-Crystal-pack-Download/dp/B00QIZO200
Uhm, that's tempting but my gut tells me that is one of those that will end up on a bundle....
