Valve will have to orbitally nuke all online sales in EU. It's the only way to be sure the lawyers don't win.

YNAB personal budget software is on the flash sale until 1est today (Sunday). It's a steal at $15, I bought it in March on sale for $40 or so. The phone app is free, website has excellent support and tutorials, and finance info syncs via dropbox on all devices. It also can be run without steam. It has a different methodology than Quicken but is better I think.

News Comments > Steam Top 10
3. Re: Steam Top 10 Jul 7, 2013, 10:28 Shok
 
GMG is having an encore of their 6 day sale for 30 hrs today. I bought the Walking Dead game (not 400 days) for $7.65 after 10% voucher (GMG10-VTTCS-VYH18). Also bought the new Civ5 expansion yesterday with a 25% off voucher to make it a little over $20. Not sure that one is still valid though.

I'm really gonna be broke this month once the STEAM sale comes around...

1. Re: Photoshop CC Jun 20, 2013, 22:01 Shok
 
I saw it earlier on the internets. I think Adobe wants it to be an easily defeated drm at this point. Eventually when they put the critical code server side they'll see how many "hobbyists" take the bait and subscribe. Either that or they are a company that learned something from the "online only" drm debacles of SimCity/Diablo/XBONE news stories so purposely made it very lightweight. Can you imagine what people would do if Adobe announced that xyz feature of photoshop is disabled until performance improvements could be patched because of drm server issues?

EA's insistence on using Origin for everything just makes me skip their games. If they get around to figuring out Steam then I'll consider it.

This, if it uses Origin it won't be on my PC...

For newcomers we have an amazing bundle offer. Get the entire Distant Worlds series and all its expansions for just $69.96! To get the bundle just add Distant Worlds to your cart and the bundle will be offered to you. Thatís a saving of nearly 40% off the base price!

Activision called and they want their (over)pricing model back.

Maybe MS will bring back DOS. We could all go back to editing config.sys and autoexec.bat and whole new generations could learn about high memory optimization.

But, yeah, seriously, the paradigm shift to Linux PC gaming can't happen fast enough.

Even if they made a free Linux version as well I still wouldn't install Origin, much less this SimCity MMO.
