You would love it, chops.
I would if I could buy it, but yeah steam allows every day to be like a new mmo release day, used to go to game website and download now everyone goes to one place and blows it up and no one gets anything ,,, well dah...
I love when KC rages at Steam. So cute.
Also Katiechops buy Civ5 Gold.
Doodle - You up for Civ5 this weekend at all ? Few of us on TS play it time to time.
Just spent 1 hour trying to buy a £4.75 game.... I want my hour of life back....
Tip: Don't play with myself, adagio or Talisker if you want a quick game
You need to try and buy late at night atm. People going mad because of the sales.
So here goes (will fall on deaf ears and all I know):
Steam allows you to purchase games from a shopfront - saves you time looking for the right website to buy from
Steam kindly stores all your games for you in one place - even if you wipe your machine, or your email gets hacked, all your games will still be there no matter what machine you log in from
Steam cloud saves your save game data - so you can move PC's with ease
Steam has built in social tools - this allows you to setup multiplayer games with ease, or you may just want to taunt your enemies (or troll them like Doodle )
Steamworks is part of most new releases - this means that even if you want to buy a box, you can and you can still add it to your steam library
All Steam games (that aren't multiplayer only) - can be played offline without an Internet connection
Buying from other sites:
Green Man Gaming forces you to use their downloader "Capsule" to download digital games from them (most games are steamworks)
Ubisoft requires you (for the most part) to use their DRM wrapper to download, install and run their games - digital or boxed
Origin, same as above - digital or boxed
Get Games Go, rarely if ever cheaper than either Steam or Green Man Gaming
Square Enix, most of their games are steamworks, no other DRM to contend with - digital or boxed
In fact there are very few games you can get that don't have any form of DRM to contend with (even MMO's have their limitations and DRM).
tl:dr - stop whinging about Steam and grow a pair
I've been good so far as i've only bought Fez, now everyone go vote for sleeeping dogs so i can waste more money
lets play chivalry tonight
I'll see if I have time for civ 5 this weekend been buying so many games
Bought gaymod (Garrys Mod) for £1.49
Oh, and adagio - Norfolk Farming Simulator is 50% off.
Bought so far:
Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham City
Saints row 3
when am I going to have the time to play these? FUCK KNOWS BWAHHAHAHAH
So far I've bought exactly...
Same here.. so far they haven't offered anything that hasn't been offered during midweek madness or weekend sales, except for Bioshock and Skyrim (which was a bit steep anyway, atleast for me). I'm starting to think that my wallet is going to do just fine during this sale
Getting stuff bellow 10euro and still getting a lot of stuff
Anyone else sees something very odd in this community choice?
How can any of you not look at sniper elite - Nazi Zombie Army and think instabuy is beyond me!
