I'm officially cutting myself off, with the exception of Hard Reset.

Hahahahaha...just one more hit and I swear I'm done. :)

Ok, I may have needed the rest of the Fallout: NV DLC, but that doesn't count as a full game.

Thanks for reminding me what a FRACKING PAIN that gfwl is.
Thanks MS for rededicating yourself to us PC gamers a year or so ago. We've got so much to show us how much you love us.

I decided to play through Arkham Asylum again before diving into Arkham City, and I thought I was going to have to break something by the time I was done messing with GFWL.

I haven't sat down and listed everything, nor figured out the damage. Lets see what we have:

SpacChem DLC
Crusader Kings 2 + DLC
Warlock: Master of the Arcane + DLC
Saints Row: The Third + DLC
Sanctum DLC
Trine 2
Binding of Isaac DLC
Alan Wake + DLC
Frozen Synapse DLC
Dead Island + DLC
The Witcher 2
Civilization V Gods and Kinds DLC + Korea DLC
Batman Bundle
Serious Sam 3

Total: $167.01.

Stunned Sweet baby Freeman. I'm officially cutting myself off, with the exception of Hard Reset. I've gotten everything I wanted, and my Steam backlog is so long now I'd need a year off just to catch up.

Me as well. And honestly? I wouldn't be surprised if we see it cheaper before the sale is over. But I'd rather lock it in now at a semi low price than to wait and risk it not happening.

I've been wondering about that--do the flash and user choice sales have different discounts from the daily deals? Based on what I've seen, it looks like they stay the same and just have a chance of appearing more often.

As a general rule, if I'm even interested and it's under $5 I buy it. Anything over $5 has to be something I want--for instance, Rayman Origins is $15 right now. I'm interested, but not enough to bite at that price.

For games I own, I do the obligatory DLC check and pick up the extra content.

Then I wonder if games can go lower. Hard Reset, which is high on my list, is 75% off right now. It's $3.75. Is it really going to get an even greater discount? I'll wait, but damn, even at that price nobody should pass on it.

I just think of all the games I already own and haven't finished yet.

There's always lulls in the gaming world. There's not much due out in the next year that I'm interested in, so I'll have plenty of time to catch up (if Guild Wars 2 doesn't swallow me whole, that is).

FYI - looks like 3 different sales going on at once. You will want to check in every 6-8 hours. They are doing constant quick deals, voting sales, and the daily stuff, on top of group sales. So watch closely.

My workplace shuts down for a week every July, and shutdown just happens to be next week--happily coinciding with the Sale and these new flash sales. This is going to be great.

Steam sale up, Steam site down.

July 12-22. I should really just avoid Steam for the next 10 days.

Ah hell, who am I kidding. Time to go shopping!

The worst thing you can do is give a date you are not sure you can make, if you've ever seen any threads on the steam forums on the release day of a new game you'll know how crazy people get when their game is two minutes late.

I believe the creation, and acceptance, of 'Valve Time' is precisely why they never gives dates anymore. I can't blame them for that.

We can, however, blame them for the large body of evidence that led to the creation of the previously mentioned time translation matrix.

There's a lot of bundles already in the CDR database, and all signs point to a July 12 - July 23 period. So get your credit cards/wallets ready for next week. ;-)

You mean cut it in two and cancel the account?

I've been holding off on a lot of games while I wait for this sale. It's going to be an expensive, but glorious, week of spending.

The problem is that their entire end-game strategy was focused on the loot hunt, which would have been fine, except they didn't account for the impact the auction houses would have. As someone else mentioned, it doesn't help that you feel weaker as the game progresses, either.

The biggest flaw with the game is the auction house. It's completely broken the loot mechanics--to the point that it feels like Diablo 3 is just a mini-game inside of Auction House 3.

Granted, I'm still playing Diablo 3. I doubt I'll continue for much longer, and once Torchlight 2 or Guild Wars 2 gets here I'll probably stop playing completely.

While I'm sure the intent was mostly sarcasm, the 1.03 patch, which is due by the end of the month, will adjust the loot tables to make inferno farming somewhat more viable. Source.

Now the question is: do I pick up Warlock: Master of the Arcane now, or do I hold out and hope it goes on sale during the Steam summer sale?

Sure, Diablo 3 is consuming my life right now, but at some point I'm going to come up for air and want a different game to play.

And things could get even more heated. Changes are happening now, as major U.S. carriers look for new ways to pump up profits by either adding to or reducing the number of coach seats, increasing legroom or cutting the distance between rows.

Fucking airlines. They should have all let them fail after 9/11 so new ones that actually work could rise from the ashes.

I can sit on a bicycle seat for hours on end in perfect comfort, but the four flights I was on this weekend were all miserable. Any more changes that reduce the comfort of a flight and I'll just stay on the ground.

If anyone is on the fence about this game, I strongly suggest you wait to purchase it. At this point you are paying to beta test the game, which is an insult considering how long the development cycle was. The game has been designed to train you to go to the auction house for your gear.

Are you nuts? Sure the game isn't perfect, but it's amazing. I'm going to go with this instead: Buy it right now. Give them money, so that they can continue to make amazing PC games.

+1

I've only bought on the auction house for some 18 DPS weapons for my low level characters, so that I could compare them all at roughly the same stats to get a feel for which one would be my next play through. I've sold a bunch of stuff on the auction house, and I've been slowly chugging my way up the ladder with both crafters.

Now I'm going to go play some more.

Didnt read through since i am only at Act III, but I can see them nerfing Soul Harvest. That ability is insanely powerful. Just go into a group of 5+ and hit it, and for 30 seconds you get a through the roof buff of attack. Can wipe out a group of elites in a matter of seconds.

Also, was it just me, or were the drops awesome yesterday?

I swear they did a ninja loot table adjustment. I've been seeing a lot more rare drops than before, though that could just be entirely due to luck. I don't mind though, my Barbarian had to do some farming just to keep from getting slaughtered in Nightmare.

Your weapon only changes if you're standing on a specialized platform, if things haven't changed from when this was written.

Any FPS that lacks hitscan weapons is a good thing, IMO. (And no, BF3 doesn't count--though it's still good).

Not weird, not at all. Depends on how far along you are, at one point in Nightmare Act2 the game difficulty sort of shoots skyward, at that point you NEED better loot. At least thats the feeling I get, but that part is sort of chock full of Champion packs and rare elite mobs.

Heck, I'm not even past the Skeleton King in Nightmare and I've already found that my best gear at the end of Normal is not nearly good enough. I more or less breezed through Normal, but Champion and Rare packs are eating me alive right now. Of course, the drops are also much better too. Most whites weapons that drop have a better DPS stat than my unique weapons.

I've stayed out of the auction house so far, but browsing through it shows me how easy it would be to get some better gear. Of course, most of the fun is from slaughtering stuff and finding better loot, so I'll probably hold off for awhile longer.
