    All on the top.

    What do you think about this?

    Sorry if it was already posted, I didn't see any threads about it.

    I personally think it's kinda redundant. To use said guides, I need to either print or alt-tab out of the game I'm playing. If I were to print it, I may as well just buy it from the local bookstore. My prefered method would be to open it on my other computer, but seeing as it's linked to my steam account (Which I'm playing the game on), I can't access it on that pc.

    You have a webbrowser in the Steam Overlay.

    You don't need any guides when you have the internet.

    This is very true, but sometimes it's just nice to have an official game guide, they go really in-depth and are kinda nice to have, hell I still have ones hanging around that I used for MGS1, Pokemon and Finaly Fantasy games I played when I was a kid.

    That said, part of the 'niceness' (I made that word up, go me) of having a guide is actually HAVING a guide. A physical copy you can flick through. It's kinda lost if you have to download it and use the steam overlay :\

    But yeah, it'd be useless to buy a game guide for games if they have a decent wikia article or something, like fallout 3 of an elder scrolls game.

    Ah well, variety is the spice of life and it's kinda cool that steam are branching out, I suppose.

    They're bloody expensive, for a digital copy they should be like $2.50, and you should be able to access them in the overlay.

    Failed idea, I feel sorry for the plebs that buy them.
