Just sell it on the market and buy the one your are missing.
Those cards will disappear from your account tomorrow

Uhhm, why would they disappear from his account? The Summer Sale cards are still available on the Market, which means they are still in peoples inventories.

It is different this time, read the Steam page

Are anti spyware malware products not protect you from that sort of stuff better then Microsoft does?
I am not trying to justify my company not upgrading, fuck it is a pain in the ass to still use XP, I am just curious

I am still on XP at work. I've talked to the boss the other day to upgrade to 7 but there isn't much reasons to do so, aside from the support not going to be there for XP, which doesn't affect us much anyways.
I'd like to get onto 7 at least but it is a hard sell to them why pay money for something that already works.

I wonder if Steam will allow games to be distributed on their platform that has this sort of a DRM scheme built in.
It causes nothing but problems for Valve even though this is not their problem.
That article is a prime example of this issue. Everyone goes "see I told you Steam will fuck you over one day" instead of looking at the actual problem this sort of DRM scheme causes.

I thought devs/publisher would have been smarter by now after what Ubisoft went through with their always on DRM.

Any recommendation for wheels that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?
The G27 looks great but it is way out of my price range.

Keep an eye on Newegg as they are always putting the G27 on sale. There really isn't anything cheaper with such quality. Maybe the Logitech Momo?
It is on sale right now at Memory Express here in Canada for $199 but it is sold out and even $199 is a little too rich for my blood.
I understand that it is a superb quality wheel but the amount of racing games I play I don't think this would be a great investment for myself.

We'll see how the wheel I've ordered will work out, as it seems like the very best option for my usage. Hope it won't suck!

Yeah I've heard from other people too that they use IE, apparently the latest version isn't too bad.
By the way those extensions are all available for both Firefox as well as Chrome in case you wanted to switch.

I only use Chrome, haven't used FF in a long time. It was way too slow compared to Chrome way back when I've switched.

Yes there is a mounting hole in the middle, so you can mount it onto a console if you wanted.
Doesn't take much to rig up a home made stand if I wanted to.

I know what you mean about no base and no feedback.
I was using the Microsoft wireless wheel on my 360 for years and I am used to the feel of the wireless wheel.
I've had the desk version of the wheel before the one you attach to your desk and while the FF was nice it was a pain in the ass to assemble and put away every time so I just ended up not using it as much.

This wheel looked like a win win for me. I know everyone is different and some people prefer the FF and desk mounted wheel and if I'd play racing games a lot more I probably would opt for one of those but for the convenient point of view this seemed like a better option for me.

I will definitely let you guys know how it is ones I get to use it a bit.
I miss driving with a wheel, I haven't played my console for a long time and I have a shit load of racing games on the PC like F1, Dirt, Grid etc that better be played with a wheel then a controller.

I probably will not have it until the sale is over.
Local store did not have any in stock so it will be shipped to my place.
Also I am not sure if it is on sale in the US. It is on sale here in Canada.

BestBuy has the SteelSeries Simraceway Steering Wheel on sale for $59.99 ($50 off), ended up grabbing that.
Checked out some reviews and they seem to like it.
I can always return it if it doesn't work out for me.

Maybe they've pulled Blur from Steam because the dev studio was shut down and Activision probably shut the MP servers down.
Steam probably did not want to get into shit about no MP.

That's crazy about Blur. I was going to post "Just buy it on Steam like I did!" before I checked to see it had been removed. My copy still works fine though.
In that case I am not sure why it is not on Steam anymore.
I've had it on the console and it was a lot of fun in MP.
I was sad to hear it did not do so well and Activision shut the studio down.

Still funny a HC site like this has a soft side to it. Not a knock really, just unexpected.
It is because it's a good game. Kind of like don't judge a book by it's cover.
Now Snuggle Truck is just a fetish, nothing else

Does any commenter on Blues have Endless Space? What is that game like and is it worth picking up?
I think it is awesome. A bunch of Blues people have it also.
Watch some of the lets play vids to see if you'd like it.
If you end up getting it make sure you grab the Gold edition that includes the expansion pack.

I've got a coupon for this game forever in my inventory and couldn't give it away as everyone on my friends list and on my friends friends list already have this game.
With this deal I think the coupon will be in my inventory forevah!
