Well, it's not obvious for me - can I still buy this game from eg Humble Bundle or I need to do it through steam?

    Check your email. Probably your purchase was rejected. Humble never quit games for nothing.

How is it possible my cousin’s account (formerly mine) has been active for 3+ years and still has only 1 year of service?

    Limited account probably, try to spend $5 or more in store, until then your years of service badge won’t increase.

Will Mirror's Edge Catalyst be released on steam?

    It's possible that EA may be planning on opening up some of their poorer selling games onto Steam to boost revenue.

    Apex Legends is on source and links to steam friends. maybe they are friendly with EA

    This might be! The original "datamined"/leaked had Halo 5 and now we have Halo MCC coming to steam.

    Pretty certain this is just concept art; Halo 4 is on there as well using the very early Master Chief redesign.

    Maybe it's somehow involved with showing non-Steam games in your library? Personally I hope it's a subtle sign of Playnite functionality of automatically adding games from other launchers into your library, but that's probably reading into it too much.

    It's probably just in there to display the ability to launch non-steam games through steam.

    hmm, but didn't valve and EA had the disagreement when it came to the revenue split share of 30% in the past?, and that's why ea started their own origin thing.

    would love to play the new mirror's edge on steam though.

  • Decadence04

    I kept hearing people saying that a lot of publishers and developers are pulling out of Steam, or that they consider it at least. Maybe all of these things are Valve's effort to try and keep their place in the digital distribution market. Make these devs/publishers think twice before considering to jump ship.

    Yes, hopefully this is a sign that EA could finally do an Ubisoft and release their wares on Steam. Even if you have to download their client in the end.

    Is it possible that steam use Bayesian Average? ie it will skew votes with low number of votes towards average (2.5/5) until you have enough vote count.

    Afaik stars means the popularity and goes up with the number of downloads, not the votes on the submissions. Kinda silly.

    I believe Steam views three star or above votes as positive. Many of those 24 voted three stars so that's why it's showing up as that.

    There is actually a solution if it's the same problem I had.

    The "1 unread chat message" always came from the same chat, let's call him Dave. Dave and I played many matchmakings in CS:GO lately and all the time he invited me to a lobby it got stuck at this message. I realised Dave also always popped up each round as "Dave is now playing CS:GO". This caused of privacy settings -> Game Details. When it was set to private I received the pop-ups and the new chat messages. After he set it to public it was gone, both. Maybe your friend has the same issue? Give it a try :)
