News Comments > Steam Holiday Auction Underway; Holiday Sale Next Week
14. Re: Steam Holiday Auction  Underway; Holiday Sale Next Week Dec 12, 2014, 00:52 Wowbagger_TIP
 
I apparently don't have cards for all the games I've played in the past, and some games, especially F2P games, only give cards when you spend a certain amount of money in game. And apparently you have to spend it through Steam or something as well, as I certainly haven't gotten cards for all the money I've spent in Path of Exile.

I really don't feel like going back and installing and playing all these games just to get cards, so I figure it's not worth my time to do this auction crap. I'd rather just play games than worry about any of this stuff. Definitely not worth the time.

Think I'll wait for them to fix the tactical cam and inventory and pick it up later in a sale.

As they complete matches players can now earn weapon modifications (which are divided into rarity: common, uncommon, rare, epic and legendary)

Completely useless, mostly useless, meh, ok, and wow, what a crappy roll.

So the $15 game (which was chock fucking full of overpriced DLC) is now a $50 game?

I haven't really read anything about this game yet, but the store page mentions offering $130 worth of in-game currency with the collector's edition, which doesn't sound like a good thing to me.

I never really got the hate for DA2. I thought if fit perfectly fine within the DA narrative as a whole. It introduced some great characters and set up the mage-templar war that we're seeing now.

The combat in DA2 is primarily what killed it for me. Damned enemies just dropping out of nowhere into the middle of your formation all the time pretty much destroyed the idea of tactical combat decisions.

I nabbed Mordor as well. Then I grabbed the season pass at bundle stars for cheap. On sale, plus 25% off even sale stuff with this coupon: SUPERNOVA25

Awww crap! I just bought Mordor when I saw it on Steam at $33.49. Didn't think to check Amazon!

Do you feel it's not worth $33? Do you want to encourage this kind of game?

I don't know yet. I haven't actually played it. Won't be able to play until I get back from vacation. While I get what you're saying, from what I've read about the game, it will be fun for a little while before it gets too repetitive. So, while it'll fill the role of an action game for a while, I don't have high expectations, so I wasn't really interested in throwing extra money at them unnecessarily. If I do end up really liking it, I could just buy the DLC.

Thats a bullshit policy change. Steam is getting to political.

Seems reasonable to me. Should help keep people from getting ripped off so easily.

I wonder if they'll get the message about the game's failings and produce a sequel (or some sort of follow-on) that will get these things right.

Seems to me that Uber is essentially a largely unregulated taxi service. So, cities should either deregulate other taxi companies, or explain clearly why such regulations are necessary, and that they should apply to all taxi services, regardless of what they call themselves.

I don't think any of you would do it, but watch Steam messages that say "hay bro did you see this" and send you a fake link that looks like a screenshot.

Word is it will steal all of your stuff.

REMOVED IT SO IT DOESN'T LINK (prtn-screenshot.com/lolsmem.png)

That's a funky little script that Steam allows to run. Thanks for the heads up!

Got another one that is a lot better disguised, starts with "hay is that you in this pic?".

Be careful guys.

It's times like these that I can be thankful that I'm a social hermit when it comes to gaming

The Internet, however, is much different from a national long-distance phone service--the Internet is a bunch of decentralized servers all over the world. The ISPs don't own the servers, either. So, a slow/down server before "net neutrality" is still going to be a slow/down server after net neutrality...;) Most people who talk about this issue don't know that, though. They think that net neutrality is going to bring them, personally, a big bunch of goodies and benefits that they don't have now, and that's exactly why they support this thing they call "net neutrality," even though they don't know what it will *really* bring: taxes, lawyers and lawsuits, and ever-degrading service.

Many of these people are too young to remember how bad the old AT&T government-protected monopoly got--just how bad things got and how long they stayed bad before the government finally said "Uncle! OK, we admit we screwed it up and so we're going to deregulate." I for one sincerely hope the Internet is spared the fate of being run by politicians, *shudder*. If that happens you won't have to be satisfied with stories and homilies about "killing the goose that laid the golden egg"--you'll get a ringside seat!

What nonsense is this? None of this has anything to do with down/slow servers or free stuff, and I don't know of anyone who thinks it does, aside from you apparently. Maybe back this garbage up with something, so at least I'll have some idea how deep the crap is before I wade in.

Liberalism was not always a mental disorder. Old-school liberals provided a much needed balance,a humane counter to worker abuse, greedy corporations, and to bible-thumping cults. Sexual liberation, and all that.

That time is long over. Modern liberals are Statists who have been defending a totalitarian President. Demagogues who prey on emotion and race to sway low-information voter.

The country has finally woken up. Thus, their asses have been kicked during the 2014 elections, and in 2016 elections, the other shoe is going to drop.

Modern conservatism is not about bible thumping. It's become about fact and reason, the ability to do math and act rationally in the interests of this country and its allies in the world. A candidate that stops dropping Jesus into every sentence, and shows themselves to be resolute, informed, sober, experienced, and optimistic, is going to win.

We're going to have a conservative President. And one day, your children will be thankful for this.

You forgot to add a /s on that post. I almost thought you were serious for a second there.

And you guys just let the GOP take over congress yet again. Six years of digging you out of the shit you they put you in the first place and now you're right back in it. You guys are so screwed.
Toff

What happens is they played the only card they had, we have one branch and shit we can't agree on things to make things look functional, otherwise they'll just keep voting the same way.

So they gridlocked the system to the point the bottom line is "who's president is responsible", so time and beat-down wins again.

Like this we know this is going to fail "net-neutral", it's about time and beat-down. When we are finally tired of talking about it, then it will happen, in the meantime it will stay in a hold state. It is holding until we tire.

Well, that, and the fact that the Democrats refused to back anything the President has done, or take credit for the recovery we've had, along with pointing out that the recovery could have been better had the Republicans not blocked damn near everything they tried to do.

Of course they might have to fess up to being idiots for trying to do anything in a bipartisan manner for the short period when they actually had control, like passing a stimulus bill that was 1/3 of what the economists were saying was needed. So no wonder the recovery has been slow. It was just unbelievably stupid of them to try to create a bill that would get Republican votes, when the Republican leadership was on record saying they were going to do everything possible to ensure that the President's term is a failure.

How stupid do you have to be to try to work with people like that? I understand they had to compromise with some in their own party, since Dems cover a much wider political spectrum than Republicans do, but 2009 was a time they needed to get their shit together and get something done for the country and they failed to do it.

I think our electoral system sucks, and I hate having to vote for Democrats, but the fact is we don't really get much of a choice, and that's the way they like it. I vote for the ones I think will do the least damage, even if I don't really like them and think they're opportunistic cowards.

AT&T threatening to "pause" a buildout that they really haven't done much of anything on, isn't much of a threat. Aside from cities where Google Fiber is competing, they haven't been doing much at all.

They're full of shit.

And of course Verizon halted their fiber efforts a long time ago. I don't see NN having anything at all to do with either.
