And it says the coupons can not be combined with any other offer.

If they are smart, and Valve is, the sale starts tomorrow. Lots of people with days off next week.

In a few weeks you will be able to sell the TF2 items in the steam market. $10 to $20 maybe.

I'm in on this.

Loved Rage, but have not finished SP yet. I guess I had better get cracking.

I remember playing Space Ace and Dragon's Lair on my Amiga. The animation quality of that game made it something quite special back in the day.

Hell's to the yes! I don't even know how many times I played Space Ace on my A500. How many floppy's was that again?

Budgeting for programming is hard. Things always seem to cost twice as much and take twice as long. I would almost be more apt to donate if they said "we will work on it for 6 months, and then release whatever we have".

Don't dip you pen in the company ink.

P.S. As far as I understand, suggestive comments and jokes may be OK, but if an employee makes any kind of complaint about it, then you have to stop immediately.

T2 will be fine.

Most people pre-ordered, and if the word of mouth is as good as I think it will be, then plenty more will shell out $20

P.S. I think a lot or maybe most PC gamers have plenty of $$$ to buy multiple games at once, they just don't have the time to play them all. Console gamers maybe buy 1 at a time.

I liked Me as a consumer OS, of course not for business or as a server or anything. I would always just use Firefox as the browser, not that crap IE.

Whenever one of my relatives or co-workers fried their compy I would drop Me on there. (No phone home to activate, and they always lost their XP key and/or disk.)

So what if it would crash every other day. Just reboot and get back to Minesweeper, Spider Solitaire and web based research.

I have never played a Diablo game, and I find these exploit and bug reports entertaining reading. If it was every stupid minor thing, then no, but an invulnerable wizard sounds neat.

P.S. I loved Torchlight and pre-ordered Torchlight 2. With my pre-order they give you a copy of T1. Anyone wants to try Torchlight, hit me up here and post your steam ID and I will friend you and send it.

I believe the Driver:SF check is every time you start up. Not so bad if you already have a Ubisoft account, but if you have gone this long without signing up for any Ubisoft crap, why start now? Game is interesting, and Yahtzee even liked it.

Should I get RO2?

Starflight was the best game I have ever played. I still plan on playing Starflight 2 someday.

1. I respect conservatives who are consistent in their principles and stick to them, but there are not many. Ron Paul and George Will off the top of my head.

2. Sure you lost ALL of your money. Even Curt is not that dumb. (And he is pretty dumb.)

Bought Rage on pre-order but only getting around to really playing it now and am having a blast.

Wall textures look like ass, sure, but characters and vehicles are nice. Also, since I got the everything included edition I get the sewer levels and really enjoy those too. Good loot down there.

Any DLC I will buy immediately, and would really like at least one new vehicle (like a preserved American muscle car that is discovered or something.)

Wasting resources on a whole new game of this will probably not go well. DLC could work if it is interesting and cheap to develop.

I would like to see them put a branded muscle car or something in there as DLC.

Alright, time to play the six games on Steam that support Linux!

I'm sure Valve is working on this too. They will either lean on developers, provide them with tools, cash incentives or even more help to get more and more of their games running on Linux.

I honestly can't believe Torchlight II isn't #1. I guess people are buying it from elsewhere, or they haven't been watching the live beta stream ( http://www.twitch.tv/iitiamatii ) with the devs and know that it's an awesome DRM-less game made by the creators of diablo 2 with same original musician from diablo 2, and is moddable via the Runic editor(that comes with it) for many awesome mods to come, and much much more.

I will be buying T2, but without a free TF2 hat, there is no hurry.

News Comments > Linux Steam Plans Confirmed
24. Re: Linux Steam Plans Confirmed Apr 25, 2012, 16:37 Elricsi
 
I think you are all not thinking long term enough. Imagine a Valve branded Linux box with Steam, Chrome and Open Office pre-loaded. Then imagine Valve either pressuring more developers to convert their game to run on this box, or helping with the conversion themselves. What would most people even need MS Windows for at home then?

This could compete with the Xbox, PS3 and Apple. If they get rolling with that, imagine how much money they could make.

Gaming has always been important to Microsoft, not necessarily hardcore gaming, but Solitaire, Minesweeper, Freecell and other goofy time wasters like that. Plus they always wanted some higher level games on their system. This is one reason that I believe MS crushed OS/2, as regular consumers are just not going to buy computers en masse unless they can goof around on them.

The only thing that could stop Valve from producing a Linux Box like this (eventually) is for MS to basically change their O/S to be Valve friendly, or just buy Valve outright.
