I'm not sure if it's a goner, but my Herman Miller Aeron chair suffered a serious setback this morning. A few years ago I found a way to keep the left arm of the chair from gradually lowering itself, but this morning the left arm of the chair broke off altogether. Broke is actually a mild description, it basically exploded.


Thank you for the comic relief this morning good sir. I've got coffee spraying through my nose reading this.

Good luck with your chair hunt.
Some of the higher end office chairs are bloody expensive.

Savings are not always passed off to the consumer, sometimes they are just profits.

Do you find it a coincidence that very few AAA games are developed in Russia?
There are games like World of Tanks and many other "free to play" games that doesn't seem to give US customer any discounts vs Russian customers.

I don't find the Russian MMO games to be cheaper to subscribe to vs games that are developed elsewhere.
Games and software prices in general however are seem to be the lowest in Russia for some strange reason.
I understand it shouldn't be the same around the globe but I don't think it should be half or third of the cost vs US pricing either.

Care to show us some figures?

No, I don't.

Why is it that you think jobs move "offshore"? Why are there exchange rates for currencies? Because things like labor are cheaper in other countries, which is why they have no purchasing power, which is why they need lower regional pricing... connect the dots.

Don't "rolleyes" at me if you don't understand basic economic concepts you should have learned in HS.

Lol dude, maybe you should read up on engineering principles first before teaching someone how to connect the dots....The fact of the matter is that data centre costs have nothing to do with pricing. Like you said the reasons are economics, or rather to be exact greed. Companies will price products cheaper in markets where they can't sell them at full price. Thats it. Fullstop.

If the cost of jobs and data centers had a lot to do with game prices we would be paying a lot less for games developed in Russia vs in the US.
Doesn't seem to be the case.

I usually find better deals on cdkeys.com or GMG with their coupons.
Steam is usually the last place I find good prices.

I was trying to figure what the hell was going on with Ed's shirt in that interview video.

Steam is still region locking games. You can not activate an EU key for example on a US account.
You can however buy global keys on key sites that work everywhere. Those are a few $ more expensive than the bottom line Russian keys.

So what are you guys buying, if anything?
I got Sniper Elite 3 and some DLC for CoH2
Most other games that are on sale and I was interested in I either already own or are not on sale.

I was thinking about grabbing Blitzkrieg 3 but I guess that is one of those always online titles or something?
Mixed reviews doesn't give me the warm and fuzzy about it.

Project Cars DLC isn't on sale either, wtf

Stellaris is a whole 10% off???

Guess I'll wait for the Winter sale or the eventual sale when Paradox has a million DLC's so the base game costs next to nothing.

Stellaris did *just* come out. Give 'em at least a month to make their money back.
Stellaris is 20% off on GMG with a coupon code. They've had another promo going on just recently for 25% off.

Pretty fantastic sale intro video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJW_ML5aE9E
At first I thought that was just going to be a lame parody, but by god it delivers in the end!

The 75% hitting the guy in the head was the cherry on top...
No, the cherry on the top is the sound effect of the 75% hitting the guy on the head.
Ka-ching!
I always wondered if Gabe finds these videos and memes funny or not. I think some of them are pure gold.

So are there daily deals or everything that is on sale for a certain percentage right now will be on sale for the same price until July4?

I'm guessing they have a few more DLC in the pipeline and they see the game popularity drops sharply especially since the BF1 announcement so they try to get more people to play this game.
Which is fine but too little too late I think.

The bots were always in the game, they will just make them available in other game modes too not just the coop horde type missions.

That would be pretty awesome.
I have this game on the console, kids playing it in coop, but I don't let them go online to play MP.
Offline walker assault would be pretty sweet.
