Hopefully steam plays nice with my new years resolution to only buy games I plan on playing immediately. Like many others my backlog across all systems is ludicrous.... I think I may have a problem.

Greatly anticipating big-picture mode here, as well. How long has it been since they announced it? A year?

Question: I bought winter voices last summer, I now tried to go back to the store page to buy DLC, but found that apparently the game is no longer on steam. What would I have to do to get the DLC? Do I need to buy the game and DLC elsewhere?

We're 8 weeks short of it being a year since the announcement. I imagine it'll be demoed at CES.

Thanks to you guys I added 31 games to my collection in that Christmas deal thread (and could have been 4 more if my CC didn't block me at 6 minutes before the deals end as I was trying to purchase the AC bundle, because of too many purchases in a short span of time triggered their anti fraud check).

I can only hope the summer deals will include Alice Madness Returns once again, as I missed out on that with this last sale.

Ahh. Add some money to your Steam wallet next sale. You can add between $5-$100 at once if you want.

just a quick note to tell everyone that the spare money on your wallet (like 0.35 etc...) is not lost or unusable. next time you buy a game, it will propose you to use the spare money on your account and pay the rest with your credit card.

figured this out some time ago when i wasn't able to recharge my steam wallet

I was thinking we should put together a google doc or something to share what coupons we have left in the event that someone wants to purchase something eligible prior to March 1st (for example, I have a 33% off Bethesda coupon that someone could use on Skyrim if they missed the Christmas sale).

A spreadsheet (assuming it was maintained) would be a lot more useful than a thread of people just posting coupons.

Can't wait for the fun brigade to come trash steamworks though :p

If he doesn't then I may put something together. Things are busy enough with the SKyrim thread and I'm debating on splitting the performance thread and making a dedicated mod thread when the CK hits.

Yes for me too but I also just added 3 Y's games to my Steam list to launch in and really want to finally play them through after having them sit in my inventory from the Groupon promo.

I posted this in the Steam Holiday topic, but now that we have our 2012 official topic up and running...

I have a copy of Risen a friend gifted me from his coal crafting (his laptop can't run the game). I'm looking to trade it. No offer is really a low-ball, and I'm not really looking for a game of current equal value, just something that would be fun.

If anyone is interested, just PM me an offer and we'll work something out.

It shows how much your account is worth by considering the value of your games at FULL PRICE. There's also another figure showing how much you spent if you bought everything on sale.

I know, my accounts worth is closing 3k and my money spent if I bought everything possible on sale is closing 1k.

I think so. They seemed useless for the sale but now that we can use them and will have sales, the true XMAS sale begins :O

I am holding out for when Oblivion goes on sale since I have a coupon for the GOTY goes on sale. A 50 PERCENT coupon.

Just got the bills for this month...

/sadface

Will live off with 150 dollars for the next 2.5 weeks. No going out allowed/lunches with coworkers/a life.

Thankfully, fridge is stocked up (like, full... roommate and I went a bit crazy with a lot of stuff to make for lunch/dinner), gas money is accounted for, and I just got done downloading the last game for my January/February backlog hitlist:

Saint's Row: The Third
Alice: Madness Returns
Skyrim
Fallout: New Vegas
Arkham City
Deus Ex: HR - The Missing Link
Assassin's Creed 2
Sonic Generations




In what order would you tackle my game list, GAF? :D

Still gotta find some time for daily running exercise/guitar practice

I think Mafia 2 is one of the few (maybe even only) games to have a restriction like that on Amazon.

You could use a UK VPN just to activate it. I did that for Saint's Row The Third when it was on sale on THQ's store and that worked fine. Have yet to hear of anyone running into problems with this down the line, too.

Dead Island for 12.99
F.E.A.R. 3 for 4.99

Both at GMG, both are Steam registerable. They also have Driver SF for 75% off, but that doesn't register on Steam.

It's good to see some competition for Steam in the sales this year, there's quite a few games now that have received bigger discounts on either GMG or Amazon than they did in the Steam sale.

I glad I didn't get DNF during the sale, just got it yesterday on Amazon for less than a dollar using a coupon and redeemable on Steam, always wanted to play it just for the history surrounding it, even if it's bad. So I think that's an awesome price
