I amazed friends and family for all of ten minutes with Limbo, and then they left the room. Still, it's a pretty fun game to run through once if you're in that kind of mood.

I found some more Steam keys for games I already own in old bundles.

edit: was meaning to make it a free for all, but forgot to add "MULTIENTRY". Is there some way to tell Modbot to change the rules? If not it will stay this way.
You can nuke them and start again

If you posted a key, someone took it, but they realized they didn't want it and asked you to repost it:
- Make sure they did not use the key
- Send a PM to ModBot. The title should contain the word nuke. The body should contain, one per line, Steam Keys you wish to unclaim. Not ModBot keys, Steam keys. Not more than one per line. No game titles. Just the keys.

A genre I'm not very familiar with
OH REALLY?

I don't have a good gif to express the sudden and extreme interest on my face right now, in part because I'm only feeling it inside. Outside is a hollow, dessicated husk.

But.

City Builders are awesome. They're focused on economics and buildings. Sure, you've got SimCity, but ignore that. What you really want is: Tropico 4 (mmm, sexy), The Settlers VII: Paths to a Kingdom (there is some combat, but very easy; not the focus), and the Anno games.

It's an amazing genre that I sink hours into because I just love making buildings and seeing how they relate to each other, getting my economy to flow, and allowing me to build maps.

Tropico 5 news today is making me lose my mind. April cannot come fast enough.

Since all these old games keep popping up, would you guys be interested in The Nations and its sequel? I actually never played the 2nd but as a fan of The Settlers the first was a lot of fun.

Nordic owns the games now. Maybe we'll see them re-released one day.

Oh good lord, just looked it up. All this strategy news keeps tempting me into getting a Surface Pro. I could be playing these games while I poop!

Hmmm.... I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I love the Tropico series and am pretty satisfied with what Haemimont has done with it. But on the other, I don't have much faith in kalypso, what with the constant stream of trivial DLC for Tropico 4 and the way Legend of Pegasus was handled.

This needs to be brought back to Steam already, Special Edition and all. Amazon and GameFly are already selling the standard edition again.

So you guys are saying I should install the latest Tropico I got from a bundle ? Hmm, never really looked into it and always thought it was a quality series but not a must play.
Is it still good if you're legit ? I fear my inside white knight won't go all banana republic...

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

quoting myself from the other Dark Matter thread
Figured I might check it out, even though I know the ending is crap. According to what I've read on the other thread and elsewhere, most of the Dark Matter staff were laid off when their kickstarter didn't happen. Like most people, I have my doubts this will return.

The question now is... do I sell my Dark Matter trading cards, or hold on to them? Obviously at the moment there is a finite supply and they've already gone up to between $0.80 and $2.00 each.

Sale coming up but is now the time to cash in? Hahaha the dilemmas we face.

But is it actually fixed???
If it adds 1 to your "Games Owned" count I think that's fixed enough for some people.

Oh yeah, I'm an evil bastard so I can do it like that, but at least in Tropico 4, you can attempt to do the right thing mostly. End up throwing air conditioners in housing and making sure people have homes instead of huts to live in and you'll be fine. Might even get less rebels that way.

If you don't need the money they may skyrocket in the near future.

EDIT: Nevermind, it ends here in a few minutes

That's what I'm hoping. It's 4 card drops so I'll probably wait until those four cards are worth the $15 I just spent on this broke-ass game. :p

Or if it goes up for sale again: sell sell sell!!!

Do booster packs still drop for games that have been pulled off steam? If they do then the supply of cards is still pretty much infinite.

Would you say that you treated them to an afternoon delight?
... I don't think I could doooo, uh, that, with family in the room.

Limbo is awesome the whole way through.
It is.... to an extent? I don't know. I thought the puzzles were kind of empty and lacking, never felt the need to go deeper through extra playthroughs. But a few years removed from that little 360 of mine, I have the urge to check it out again. It is undeniably beautiful to play and the atmosphere never disappoints.

Nobody really knows for sure. Once I've idled all the cards out of it I'll check to see if I'm "eligible" anyway.

To my knowledge this is the first game with trading cards that has been pulled from Steam.

Since the devs get a cut on all of the marketplace sales of their items, I can't imagine Valve would continue to reward them by releasing booster packs, but like I said nobody really knows the status on this.

Got a Don't Starve booster pack (sells for 61 cents)..what do I do with this?
Separate cards sell for about the same to slightly more combined, so why not open it?
You've got nothing to lose. Cheapest foil is also worth more.

I think Limbo gets shit on on because it starts out with so much amazing promise and then devolves into something mundane, but with good atmosphere.

Giving away FTL, man, that is laudable. Making me feel better about humans with such a gift.



To the winner: you will not be disappointed. At all.

Of course. For a game to support cards the developer needs to have provided Valve with everything -- the cards themselves, high-res art, backgrounds and emoticons. Continued input isn't necessary.

I thought booster packs only dropped after someone crafted a set?

If that's the case, in a scenario where a game gets pulled from steam (so a finite number of people get drops), if lots of those people sit on cards and don't craft badges or trade the cards to let others do so, there'd be fewer booster packs dropping, so cards would increase in value.
