Steam Winter Sale 2012 - Seriously Guys, It Was Over Two Months Ago! Move Along!

I love simulators, but that one I could never get into...because the steering wheel is on the wrong side. Is there an option for non-UK vehicle conventions?

Also, do you ever have to avoid deer or anything?

See if we make it a good game that nobody wants than why not Euro Truck Simulator 2 if it goes on sale. It's as close to a garbage truck simulator as you can get but it's not too bad, I mean this guy played it for an hour and a half unironicly... sort of.

This video is surprisingly entertaining.

Skip to 7 min: "And now we're on our way."

Skip ahead: "Do I go down any lane I want? Calais... Is that a train? Oh my god, we're getting on a train?"

Skip ahead: "I've got myself right on a bloody little hill, haven't I."

Alright, I was going to play Dishonored tonight, but forget it, I'm watching this now.

When you buy a truck, you have the option for right or left side drive. If you're interested, you can download and demo the full game from them which has some cities, trucks, and roads removed, I believe, until you buy and unlock the full game.

I'd pick it up, but I'd need a heck of a sale. So far the demo is enough for me.

Sold! On the demo. Which means the part of me that likes Gears of War and Quake just died a little.

Hey, here's the Truck Simulator topic! http://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/1...

Heaven help me, I watched the entire 96 minute video.

That video wasn't long enough.

Me too! Hilarious guy + great game = time well spent.

Downloaded the demo too: I'd play a lot more if my computer could run it (and I had a controller).

Oh yeah, the transmission select screen is well-done. Put me in my place. Is LiquidMantis playing ETS2?

Hey! How did I become the group's simulator guy? There are a few dorks around here. Currently iRacing is my addiction though.

LM, go look at your racing setup again. Soak it in for a moment and then protest again, with a straight face, that you're not the biggest racing sim dork on the site. I'll wait.

That's not 100% true.

SparklePonies was a game no one wanted to own, but if you tried it out....it was actually a decent game.

That's the joke.

No idea what the next season's game would be, but something like Cherry Hill High Comedy Club, or Fairy Bloom Fresia might fit the bill.


Sparkle Ponies was definitely not a decent game.

Wait, ETS2 has proper triple screen support?! *queues up download*

He said it wasn't decent. That could mean it's amazing...

Then it should be clear that mine is a well-informed opinion.

If it takes you 25 hours to determine something isn't a decent game, what happens if we put the newest numbered Final Fantasies in front of you?

Isn't it obvious? He'd get partway through the tutorial.

Are we really so surprised that Q hates himself?

We all know that it's preparation for when you go nuts and they try to blame video games. Your last laugh will be when the news anchor says "Call of... Ponies?"

Perhaps he was suggesting that it was an indecent game? And if so, what mods has he been using, and how can I make sure that I never ever encounter them?
