FYI, LA Noire is locked at 30 FPS by default. There's an unofficial fix for that, though I'm not sure how it affects stability. I figured there was a specific reason why they capped the FPS at 30 but it's possible they were just being lazy.

Well, there's 2 more days of sales to go so cross your fingers. I want that one too. It is pretty new though so we may have to wait a while.

Gift pile page says "Here are your final objectives!" and generally they say "through January 1st". Since the current ones technically are gonna be available through tomorrow, haven´t we seen them all?

Edit: from europe. So yeah.

Edit 2: just realized I am writing to you from the future. It´s awesome here!

Yes I agree, and you can't just hit the pause button, you have to hit the pause button, then the resume all button, which makes me think that valve didn't intend for anyone to even have the option to d/l while playing.

It's 2 extra clicks that literally takes 2 seconds. I guess you'd prefer it go back to not being able to download at all while in another game?

Is there a way to keep Steam from pausing a DL when firing up another Steam game?

It only does that on actual start up of something. Tabbing out, restarting and tabbing back in usually solves it.

Edit: I are slow.

Yep. And it's still super-annoying you have to do that, because not all games actually handle alt-tabbing all that well. It's a bug that's been in Steam for fucking years, but I guess nobody at Valve is "interested" in fucking fixing it.

I don't like the wonkiness of it all but I do appreciate it pausing on start up. I wouldn't want my online FPS lagging and spiking because I had an automatic update going on in the background that I didn't specifically start myself.

Well, 24 achievements later, wound up with Amnesia and Sequence (via trades), 1 coal and a load of coupons (including no less than 4 valve coupons). Hoped for better, but I'll take what I can get. Actually didn't spend as much as I though I would through the sale.

Wondering if Renegade Ops will go on sale tomorrow as that's the one that probably got away that I should have gotten

Wish Rockstar would have ported Red Dead Redemption instead.

So does just about everyone but I'll take LA Noire. Just bought it for 12.50. RDR I'd buy at full price if the port didn't suck the balls off a yak.

LA Noire bored the crap out of me. There is a method to talking to people. Once you have figured that out and looking for clues (waiting for controller to vibrate) gets old really really fast.

Sold/traded it (PS3) in after 5 or so hours of gameplay.

I turned off all the vibrations and dings. Still a very formulaic game and I understand if anyone is bored by it but I've heard the complaint about "vibration" etc. one too many times.

Their mechanics, and it's on by default. Regardless the end result is the same, with or without the vibration. You walk up to random objects, twist and turn them until the clue is discovered. Rinse & Repeat. Waiting for the vibration is just the same as having a visual or audible cue.
