Great! We'll all feed the 'Steam Machine' by buying games we'll either never play, or finish.

It's a disease I tell ya!

I've gotten better by setting rules for most sales. Certain franchises do get an exception though, mostly if they are guaranteed to provide lengthy play times.

  • My Steam Wishlist shall never grow bigger than 75 titles. IF a title pushes it over 75, one must come off the list. Any entry counts, be it a full game or DLC.

  • If the item is not on my wishlist then it shall not enter my library unless it is free.

  • A game may break the following discount rules only if it is a multiplayer only title.

  • If the game is not 6 months old yet (from initial PC release date): 50% off or better.

  • If the game has been out for 6 months to 18 months (from initial PC release date): 66% or better.

  • If the game has been out for 18+ months (from initial PC release date): 75% or better.


  • The 6 month rule might sound crazy, but I picked up both Rise of the Tomb Raider and Just Cause 3 from CDKeys.com for just under $60 total last month.

    I like it Tyrric, good guidelines.

    Is anyone familiar with www.GamesDeal.com? I don't know how 'truly' legit they are, but they seem to becoming more popular. I picked up FO4 Season Pass off their site a couple of weeks ago for $24.99. They have really good/aggressive pricing.

    QFT. In order to finish all the games I buy, I'd need to win the lottery and have that become my new full-time job.

    Hmmmm....working through and completing all your games in your library as a full-time job. I wonder of that would be enjoyable, or become like a full-time job? It would be fun to see.

    Is this another step towards 'embracing PC gaming'?

    Meh....Not mature enough yet to get me excited enough to get VR (Oculus, Vibe, etc.) gadgetry at this point in time. The technology has certainly made larger strides, but still not quite there. I'll give it another 3-5 years.

    Did Oculus always intend to have controllers, or was that only after the Vibe released them at launch?

    They were always going to have a controller solution. Standing and controllers is the only way to push it mainstream.

    I just bought VIVE a week ago, and I have to say it's very, very impressive. The tracking and motion sickness issues are solved. It's essentially lag free and I (or those I've had use it) never have experienced anything resembling motion sickness.

    The biggest problem, imo, is screen door effect. It's distracting, no doubt about it. Way more so than jaggies. I would guess they're 2 years away from a 4k panel at 90-120hz. You don't need to render at 4k to make it good, as 4x AA of 1080p output looks pretty good.

    We're 1 generation of tech advances away from it being ideal from a tech standpoint. The games however.... we'll see about that. I can only play Elite for so long.

    Cool! Thanks for post/info.

    In what respect; cheating, or lock-ups?

    Cheating I can pretty much avoid if/when I'm playing with a group of friends, but I suffer mostly from lock-ups, which is most aggravating when I am winning a race.

    It's a shame too. The UI was pretty excellent, and I liked that fact you could switch the phone to any language. Harder to do that with Android.

    Also, less competition and ideas kind of sucks.

    These writers always seem to be in a hurry to paint a bad picture on anything Microsoft related.

    I've read several other articles, but can't quite confirm anything, but what I gathered so far is they're just retiring the Nokia line.

    Another article states Microsoft is working on a 'Surface Phone' with a heavy target on 'Business' Their last ditch effort. /shrug

    1350 of these cuts are in Finland as Microsoft kills what remains of its disastrous $7.2bn purchase of Nokia.

    MS just never ceases to amaze me. Simply boggles the mind.

    The company is so disjointed, it is sad.

    Nice to see they pretty much held true to the original art style.

    I still have to go back and finish the original.

    Updated Skimer malware infects ATMs worldwide.

    So many people's CC are getting skimmed off of vending machines, ATMS, etc etc etc. Taking a LOT of reports.

    I don't know, but it seems like security companies can't keep ahead of the hackers/thieves.

    How fucking difficult is to make the leap that when people are talking about a different price than what you see in the US that they're more than likely speaking about a different currency? Jesus Christ, it's not rocket surgery.

    Is the SP campaign 100% playable in CoOp?


    Thought I heard "no" last night, but snapmaps have a coop flag...


    No Coop Campaign, and yes the Snapmaps are the only place to create Coop maps. Someone I'm sure will build a large Coop campaign if it's possible to do. I haven't had time to mess with it myself yet. So I am very curious about how much control in this we will have to be creative.

    I have a bad feeling though that it's going to be some dumbed down fast placement BS.

    Thanks nin and Darks. Maybe by the time this hits the bargain bin, something like the 'Last Man Standing' mod for DOOM 3 will be available. That was a fairly decent mod for playing DOOM 3 SP campaign cooperatively.

    200fps is not really surprising given the horrible console port garbage visuals. What's next? "News" that Pacman runs at 500fps on Vulkan? Yawn.
