Thanks for the recommendation, will read about it!

Been thinking about a wired 360 controller..

I wouldn't buy any other pad for my pc honestly, totally worth the few extra bucks.

Haha, you probably misunderstood me. I said I don't mind using a used controller.
GameStop my best bet to find one? Don't really know prices for used controllers, what prices should I be looking for?

I was checking into used 360 controllers from gamestop a bit ago and they were pretty hard to find. My wife ended up getting mine new at Best Buy for 29.99 I believe. If you can come across one I have had no problem with it, most games recognize the controller just fine and map the UI for it. Good luck hunting one down.

from the prices I checked online, it seems like the used prices are similar to the new ones from BestBuy. I'll look around, thanks again!

Can't believe this was a scheduled downtime. Why would they do this in the middle of the afternoon. Why not in the middle of the night like MMOs.

We'll be updating some of the Steam servers Tuesday January 3rd, 2011 around 16:00 PST (GMT-8). Chat, game lobbies, and the community web site will be affected. Content downloads and game play should not be affected. Downtime is expected to be short.

And then

The server update is taking a little longer than expected; we'll be back up and running as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience.

So we'll have to wait and see.

EDIT - Did Steamcommunity.com always force HTTPS or is that new?

Well, 2 new games for my backlog, completely free.

And I was actually interested in both of them. Thanks, IGN. You're pretty cool.

Straight to the games library. If you want to gift them, keep the CD keys.

I registered (used my already existing D2D account to login), selected PayPal as my payment method (you need to login and confirm), put the keys into Steam, and turned off auto renewal.

This is what the page says:

Current Term Ends: 1/15/2012
Next Billing Event: None.
Auto-Renew: Off
Payment Method: None.
