In looking at games today, it seems as if the description field is randomly filled from any game's description. If I refresh pages, it'll fill in a different description. I had my husband try on a different computer, and he was getting the same result. For example, the first time he looked at Steam, it said no description available. When he refreshed, the description referred to a Lock and Load game.

I checked a few games, but Steam for me as well is the same. Both the description and the more info section are the same for me. For me it says:
Quote:
Die Nacht der Vampire is a casual game with a vampire hunting theme.

I was just about to post this! I've been having a lot of fun with it. I didn't realize "Rise of the Roman Republic: The Ancient World Vol. 1" was expanded by the "Paris Paris - Zusatzkarten Expansion"!

That's ok, but did you know that agricola has heroes, monsters and villains straight from the pages of the third edition players handbook?

It's kind of fun to see how many games I can identify by their random descriptions

Carcassone is apparently a survival-horror game
Scratch that, now it's a computer

What do you expect from a game with the word "carcass" in it?


Haven't encountered any mixed up descriptions so far. Maybe only some are affected?

Awesome, that finally convinces me I should give this game a try!
