lol I caved and bought Euro truck cuz of these forums

Everyone already owns Snuggle Truck, now my next plot is to make everyone ETS2 as well!
They both are about trucks right? So they are exactly the same game, right?


I have a friend who got the game and is loving it. He's earned money and pimped out his ride with like 15 extra headlights on racks and a bunch of extra horns. He's shown me screenshots, it basically looks as bright as daylight in front of him when driving at night

Are the early access games you're looking at self published? Then there's your answer as to why early access exists.
Oh, you mean like this one?

The one ubisoft is doing? The P2W game they've marked as early access? That will become F2P but right now is pay only?

Never heard of it and don't care. Game looks like a pile of shit anyway. Who would be stupid enough to buy that? The vast majority of early access games are by microscopic indie devs working on a fraction of the budget to what big publishers would usually fund them. This has to be explained every day because morons like to cry.

Get it now? Oh no of course not.
Dude, I get it. I've backed over 100 projects on KS. But some people want a complete game, I can understand that too.

I think if Steam weren't there we'd be using something other that isn't called Steam but still does all the things Steam does. In the end, the market showed it needed a digital retail service that is publisher agnostic....

[...]

How insanely stupid it was from Stardock to sell Impulse is beyond words though.
EA showed us what things would have been like when they were running their original service (the old EA digital download service way before origin). Where they CHARGED you to re-download something.

Actually, stardock made the smart decision to sell impulse. They got out of it for a good price at the right time. They make most of their money selling utilities like Start 8, not games. And they were spreading themselves thin with all the little games they were putting onto impulse. Remember how they were starting to have financial trouble? That sale bailed them out and they seem to be healthy again.
There's been details about the reasons for the sale written up by stardock as I recall.
That being said, I do miss their vision for impulse. They wanted to let people sell their "used" digital games, had a nice gamer's rights document (that they unfortunately didn't fully live up to).

If Valve decided to get out of the business, there would be a long line of people wanting to buy it from them, but lets hope that never happens.
It won't. If they did, they'd lose basically all their income, and they are having too much fun spending it on things like trying to enter the console market, custom controllers, biofeedback devices, custom OS, and anything else they can think of to do that's fun and interesting and often expensive, and NOT HALF LIFE.

Seriously valve, farm it out already.

The load on Steam has been fine until L4D2 being made free today.
Didn't even have a problem accessing Steam in the first hour of the first day of the sale.
Everyone single holiday sale and nearly all major releases, I have at least one glitch on the steam storefront, or profiles, or inventory, etc, when I try to load a page, usually with some steam code when it fails. And I had a couple this sale too, even before this.

Regardless, doesn't change my point that I've had for years about them needing to make storefront issues and uptime a higher priority

Good ole steam. As usual their front end is crap and entirely overloaded on a popular deal, and their content servers are just fine.

Like I've said before.
Protip: If your company relies on income from your store front, IT NEEDS TO BE UP 100% OF THE TIME!
Seriously, contract some enterprise store front end consultants, if you don't want to hire specialists. Things like load balancing and redundancy, etc. I know for a fact its NOT the bandwidth, since everytime I check, they have plenty of it in reserve in their stats page. Which means there's no excuse.
Servers are cheap nowadays. Recently for my job, I submitted an order for a $20k gen 8 HP server to host some virtual stuff. Things like 15k raid arrays (ssds weren't needed in this case), dual high end Xeon CPUs with 10 cores each, 128 gb of fast memory.

I'm certain that steam is losing FAR MORE money on these issues and outages than it would cost to fix them. And they have plenty of data to show how much the load grows each year during sales, how may accounts they have active, etc.

LOL, looks like that 24 hour DRM check in is still present in xbox one (despite all the MS lies about how they were reversing away from it), and it will kick you out in the middle of a game!

I did not know you could import your wishlist into Any Deal, so scratch that.
Yes, and get notified on a highly configurable basis things like "lowest ever price on items on my wishlist" or whatever. I have it set to email me once a day, which helps keep an eye on bundles and sales.
Jerykk wrote on Dec 23, 2013, 22:46:
I'm just amazed that there are people out there who still don't own Skyrim.

Also, the community sales are really annoying. People always vote for games that have already had the exact same discount many times before. Even if I'm not interested in a particular game, I will vote for it if the discount is unprecedented.
They will go on daily at same price. So just wait for it if its something you are interested in

We also knew 3 months ago from the leaked email, that the Autumn Sale and the Xmas Sale would be the same prices. With the Xmas Sale being longer, we'd probably just see more games participating in the Daily and Flash sales.
Unless otherwise specified by publishers. Like the lowest ever stuff.

Hey, thanks for noticing

Been busy with life stuff. I still often read blues, I just can't always find the time to read the comments (yes I generally read all of them in a thread when I'm interested in responding) and respond.

You typically don't complain when you make comments and you come across as intelligent. That's why I noticed your absence (or reduction in post frequency).
Why thank you. I do try and post intelligent (or at least intelligible ) and usually logical posts.

If they're Howard and Raj, who's Bernadette?
I'm far more interested in Bernadette.

Maybe Half Elf?

XCom EW $15, Lego Marvel Superheroes $12, Wolf Among Us $16.75, Sleeping Dogs $5, FarCry 3 $7.50...cheapest any of them have been, a couple have been this price before.

That's just a sampling. People complaining that sale prices aren't good enough, are idiots. I need to stop viewing Cutters posts to see what people are responding to, when I have him ignored for a reason.

Nothing you want, that you don't already have? First world problems.


I want to try Lego Marvel but I'm waiting for it to go 50% off or better.

GMG is selling it for 50% off
Actually, make that closer to 70% off (don't feel like doing the math for exact percent) with this 20% voucher:
GMG20-ZB5D1-93X49

I was hoping for a big sale on Xcom: Enemy Within, no luck so far (though it did go on sale). I really want to pick it up, but it just seems so much more like a DLC pack at an expansion price if you don't care for the multiplayer.
I think the list of stuff is pretty impressive.
