It looks like I'll be picking up RA3 then. I've always been a fan of the series.

I'm tempted to buy Red Alert 3. Any recommendations for or against?

I know many people who've been waiting for ME for $5, so I'm sure they're selling a crazy number of copies right now.

Hell, I'm tempted to pick it up at that price and I have a boxed copy.

I think Steam is finally cracking under the strain. Tried to buy Mass Effect for $5 and I'm just sitting here looking at a "Working...." button. Steam has broke before under launches, but never bad enough where they still couldn't take my money...

*update: They charged my account, so I'm sure they're just being hammered. Oh well, back to more CivIV

That happened to me yesterday when I picked up the Crysis pack about 30 minutes after it went on sale. I ended up getting a credit card declined notice (after about 10 minutes). I just waited an hour, tried it again and all was well.

The Steam front page currently has the top twenty listed, and it does seem to be updating more often. I don't think it's broken, I think they just increased the refresh rate on the list because of the holiday sales.

Most likely. That Top 20 has been all over the place, depending on the days sales. Shame the last few days haven't had anything I'm interested in.

God damn, I just got Torchlight the other day for $10 from Steam. That's not cool, but at least I'm only getting screwed out of $5 and not $25 or some shit.

I bought it for $20 and it's been worth every penny. Paying anything less is a steal, no doubt about it. It's also nice to finally see digital distribution paying off in terms of game cost; while it may not have improved initial retail price it's certainly helped over the long term.

Defense Grid: The Awakening for $2.50 on Steam. Worth every penny.

Edit: Oh god, I need to stop looking through the Steam sales. I'm gonna be all set on the gaming front for years if I don't...
Edit 2: Look carefully through the sales, there's a lot there not mentioned on the main page. Dark Athena for less than $7.... (I paid $10 during the last sale)

Seemed odd for northeasterners who should be used to the snow.

It happens every single snowstorm. I honestly can't figure out why; these people have lived here all their lives. You'd think 6 inches of snow was the opening salvo of the apocalypse. Boggles the mind.

News Comments > Steam Torchlight Patched
10. Re: Steam Torchlight Patched Dec 18, 2009, 22:27 Bucky
 
Ok you got me, I bought it. I tried the demo and thought I could pass my turn on this one. The main fact is time, I already have plenty of other things to do and I already spend enough time on the computer (ask my gf) but for the price I said why not, even if I could only play 30 minutes a week it should be cool.

One of the best things about Torchlight is that it's very friendly when it comes to short gaming sessions; it's very easy to jump in and out without having to put any serious time down. I find myself frequently loading it up for 15 minutes or so before I go to work.

Steamcloud and achievements are a HUGE update! This game is an absolute steal at $10. RIDICULOUS value.

Agreed. Anyone that doesn't own this game had better after this sale. At that price I'll probably gift a few copies.

So I've put this on my to-investigate list, but don't know if and when it'll ever get done.

Well you never said you wanted practical suggestions.

News Comments > No Shattered Horizon Engine Licensing

I just noticed this game when visiting Ars today. It seems right up my alley; I've always enjoyed the type of gameplay they seem to have focused on. I'd have bought it already but it seems the active player base is almost absurdly small:

http://stats.shatteredhorizon.com/stats/listPlayers.action

It seems the devs are in constant communication with the community too, so there's another good thing going for it. I really think all they need is more players, perhaps a 50% off sale when the drop their first map pack?


I'd love a guest pass if anyone has one.

Just thought of another one I'd like:

In the forums topic listings, a way to identify threads that have been updated since your last visit, instead of just threads with comments that you have not read.


I'm just gonna keep tossing things out there as I think of them. I'm not complaining at all, this is just what you get for giving us a general forum.

What about a thread display option that will show all of the comments in a threaded view instead of just one? That would be my default in an instant, and possibly keep the rambling conversations around here a bit more organized.

The link to these forums seems too tucked away and out of sight.

Agreed. Perhaps just make the bar they're listed in bigger and give them full fledged buttons? I don't know, design is not my strong suit. I do think they need to be more prominent though.

And this will, yet again, drag me back in. the Soldier is by far my favorite TF2 class, though it's a bit funny since my favorite class in TFC was the Demoman.

TF2 is starting to become a serious contender for my 'best multiplayer game ever' award. Not that it counts for anything.

News Comments > Dragon Age: Origins Patch
19. Re: Dragon Age: Origins Patch Dec 7, 2009, 18:53 Bucky
 
No issues here either, though I only started playing about a week ago.

This patch is great news for me, since I played a mage for a bit and then decided on a dual-wielding dagger rogue. I've only just made it to Lothering though, so I'm not far.


Also, I'm very happy (and impressed) that Impulse already has the update live as well. They usually seem to lag a bit on that end, though that's more likely an issue with the publisher providing all sellers with the patch files in a timely manner. Time to play!
