    Went to play Civ V after it has just updated itself

    The desktop icon no longer auto-loads Civ V but jumps to the steam web site / store (maybe steam want me to buy Civ V again)

    I can launch directly from steam://rungameid/8930 but the desktop is done

    Anyone else having a simular issues with steam tonight

    You have to delete your old short cut and make a new one. Also, creating a dx11 or dx9 shortcut so it chooses the correct version automatically doesn't work anymore. you have to go back to choosing manually.

    Hopefully, it will be fixed shortly.

    This just sucks......

    To take this off topic (just a bit) watching the new Simcity which is going to be released in 3 weeks - you can not even own the software anymore - just an online game.

    If steam is having this many issues with just maintaining the upgrades for Civ V, I can just imagine the aggravation with the new Simcity <aarg>

    Now I have to decided if I want to spend 80 for this possible online headache......

    And just what is going to happen when these online companies go out of business - you do not have anything left and your out the money for the purchase - again, this sucks.....
