These cards are crazy I just started got one for buying and one for playing Triple Town and already sold both seconds after listing... lol Every time I get a card I say wooohoo and list it for cheapest on the market or a penny more. Let someone else chase the rabbit.:)

Triple Town is alot better than the iOS version. I refused to play FTL first as I may not leave according to what everyone says.

My damage so far:
FTL $2.49
Surgeon Simulator 2013 $3.39
Puzzle Quest 2 $2.49
Triple Town $3.99
The Walking Dead $6.24


Debating on Chivalry, the free weekend was fun.. Is it still active MP? Tomb Raider would be a instant buy but im half through it on 360.
Don't even bother going a penny under the list price. Go at the list price or even a penny above and youll sell easy.
 
I'm slightly disappointed with Bad Rats, it's not nearly as terrible as I was hoping. Sure, it's a bad game, the interface is terrible, the physics engine makes everything really fiddly, and the levels are far too simplistic. But I'm not sure it lives up to its reputation as the worst game on Steam. If it were an iOS or Flash game it would be considered average, surely there's something worse out there.
Last Christmas, I completed Bad Rats with all its achievements and I was ranked #1 in the world.

 
Wow, I remember this being a big deal when it was announced as one of the first WiiWare games. I completely forget that it existed. Is it really that bad?
it's like the Power glove in '80's videogame movie The Wizard. it's so bad.

I'd gift a copy to you so you could suffer like I did, but fortunately for you, I have too much respect
for my money
to spend it on shit like that.

...and I suppose you feel proud of what you did? :mad:
 
It may not be much but I felt like giving a little something away. This is what I believe to be the greatest Tomb Raider of all.

This says everything about IOS 'gaming' that needs to be said.
 
Figured I'd give some stuff away.

Anyone here played Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2? Yay or nay?
Wondering if I should grab this as well. The meta score isn't too great, but how does it play as a sniping game? Does it require you to really think and strategize the shot or is it like another mindless fps?

It's no longer a sniper simulation. It's very much a linear action oriented FPS wherein the main weapon is a sniper rifle. Also, the game on normal difficulty holds your hand every step of the way and you constantly have a partner moving the story along. So if you're looking for a legitimate sniper sim, this game isn't for you. But if you are more interested in a linear action FPS, you might find some entertainment. Visually, the game uses Crytech's Cryengine 3 so it definitely has a nice presentation.

Edit,

You can turn off the shooting aids, to simulate bullet drop and wind resistance. But the core game never changes.
