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.

Good to know, will do that next time.
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

Already beaten Bulletstorm, Hard Reset, and Rochard the past few days. Incredible backlog from the sale minus 3!

Looking forward to another fun (where I spend lots of money) year.

The list of trusted sites is missing amazon, they even had better deals on steamworks games last sale than Steam itself.
 
#64
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.

You should make one. Would be nice to have a go-to list for steamworks games! Judging by your Skyrim Mods OT, it will be kept updated =)
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.

Hopefully its better than it was Christmas of '11

Gonna check out demo real quick....

This will be the year where I buy yet another several dozen games from steam at rock bottom prices, then not install them and go back to playing Dota 2.

This, I vow.
 
#73
So i downloaded Fable - The Lost Chapters on the final day of the steam sale. When i click on the icon to play the game, nothing happens.. i've tried going into steam apps and launching from there but still, nothing.. any ideas?
 
#75
I spent a whopping $5 on this years Xmas Sale. I am very proud of myself!

Summer Sale will be a different story, as most of the games I wanted I already had leading up to the Xmas Sale.
 
#79
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.

So, do you think coupon value went up for trading?
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.

Any chance I would enjoy Airline Tycoon 2 if Roller Coaster Tycoon was my favorite of that genre? Would still love to find a current gen tycoon game that I can play as much as I did with RCT.

I was a bit hesitant to put amazon, (since the keys only register on NA steam accounts and you need to have a US address) but's it's on the list now.

Should add this
http://store.steampowered.com/?cc=us

to the OP, for dirty foreigners like me who want to know steam US prices to see if they are getting ripped off or not (fuck you to whoever is responsible of Dead Space 2 still being $60 here)
done.

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
/gulp

I don't live on the US and have bought steamworks games on amazon without any issue :)

really? I couldn't register Mafia II from Amazon since it was region restricted for the UK :|


oh the steam calculator sites have been added.

HEY GUYS! look how much I spent on Steam!:
nobody cares how big your backlog is, we all got problems here.
http://www.steamcalculator.com/ work out how much you spent on steam.
http://wastedonsteam.com/ tells you how much time you spent on steam and for each game.

Guess it depends on the game, I had no issue with Renegade Ops and DoW2 Retribution.

CIV 5 GOTY + Dungeon Defenders registered fine during the sale
(South Africa, bought on Amazon.com via help from Xelios).

Assume there is a few region locked games though (like Mafia 2)

I had completely forgot about this game and just tried out the demo, its pretty fun!

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.
 
#99
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
