Did everyone get an Assassin's Creed coupon on Steam for 50% off, or is steam giving out birthday coupons now?

At first I wanted to reply to that post that I don't own any of the AC games and still got the coupon (not my birthday either), but then I realized that I actually bought the first one during a holiday sale and never played or even installed it.

So, I guess this AC3 coupon is definitely only for AC owners.

Stacking is a simple but fun game, well worth the 15$ if you like adventure games but this offers in addition to that a unique interface and gameplay.

NOLF is still one of my all time faves. Had zero expectations going in and absolutely adored it!

For me it was even worse, I absolutely hated the demo and somehow after reading many reviews, especially the old man murray one, I convinced myself to try the full game and so N.O.L.F. became one of my greatest (FPS) gaming experiences ever.

Anyway, I am actually considering buying this game (J.U.L.I.A.)... the moment it is available on Steam, that is.

wow, this project is going to way more awesome than anyone, including Tim, could have ever imagined. And we are going to have Psychonauts 2. Must be a crazy time for Tim

In addition to that, hopefully, amazing adventure game, I will also receive a 900-piece limited DF poster with signatures of Tim and Ron. Amazing times for too, indeed. Waited almost 20 years to get a collectors item like from my personal heroes

Oh THQ. If only you'd done Red Faction Guerilla II :P

Armaggedon was not as bad as people make it (I actually enjoyed as long as it lasted) but a Guerilla II would have been at least 10 times more exciting, that's for sure.

'To me', it looks like a 'Left4Dead me too product' with bad cartoon/comic book style character/color additions.

What? It's a story-driven, single-player game where you play as a single character who has both guns and demonic tentacles. The co-op mode is just a bonus, likely tacked on because publishers demand that all games have co-op these days.

I can only confirm this. The Darkness (I) at least had really nothing with L4D in common, except both being first-person-view shooters...

This is unique, very dark and atmospheric story-driven single-player game with many cool moments and some great ideas (like the immortal end-boss without going into further details to spoil the scene).

Co-op? Not interested, this should be enjoyed as a pure single-player game.

After seeing the trailer, I actually was thinking to buy this game (I already own all of the Sam & Max games and the first Monkey Island Season). This is now not going to happen. Sorry TellTale, these are not business practices.

Or you could just not buy this sort of garbage at all. Problem solved.

That's precisely what I meant. EA doesn't play fair and they want to enforce they online delivering service... well then just don't buy the game at all. The game will be anyway full of cheaters two weeks after its release...

The crap thing is, I may end up having to pick this up via Origin... *barF*

Which, of course, is *exactly* what they want. Use a predominant AAA title to force customers to switch from a third party content deliever to their own service. This would never work with a small, unknown title but BF3 is just perfect for this strategy.

If you like a free market with a lot of competition, then be strong and don't buy BF3... I'll will do so for sure.

So going down briefly for maintenance at 5am EST (2am PST) is unacceptable?

This was no maintenance as confirmed by Valve already, several servers were unexpectedly down but everything has been restored by Valve within an hour...

on a different note: Steam is completely down, no connections can be made to any steam server worldwide. Of course one can still play one's game offline.

It was clear from the beginning that FEAR3 will be a steam sale contender for me. I gonna buy when it's available for 15$ for less.

Like with almost all the games currently on my steam wishlist... Just a few rare games nowadays are worth 50$ anyway.

lol must be getting old - I had to see what ram my graphics card.

Was thinking the same thing. A few years ago I could instantly tell what speeds my GPU memory and core is clocked at without looking, now I can't even remember the name of my GPU card.

I had to look up the amount of memory on my card too. Luckily I also got 1GB

Yes, the week almost couldn't have been any better. Wait, no, it could have been better. Apple could also have been hacked like this. That would be great fun look at all this crapplefans
