Yep, you're doing it right. Welcome to Steam! It's not just a game service, it's an albatross of unrealized gaming pleasure hanging around your neck!

Heck, I don't even have the time for my mountain-sized GOG backlog, let alone my continent-sized Steam one.

Yes; but at least I'm not creating the waste from the boxes and discs we used to have to buy.

Unless you imagine some minimum wage Valve employee opening boxed copies of every single game sold and sending out the game codes. You thought that huge landfill out back of Valve was to store Gabe's moneyhats? It's empty boxes.

That's right, they make the minimum wage Valve employee EAT the contents of the boxes before tossing them into the landfill. It's a perk.

You really don't want to know what it was like for them during the height the recent sparkle pony fever. Unicorns may poop rainbows, but what do you poop if you eat the unicorns?

Rainbows with horse shoes and horns?

I'd love to see Torchlight 2 on sale as well.

That and Kingdoms of Amalur, but I think that's a long shot.

Apparently Rhode Island own the rights to KOA on Steam after the studio behind it went bankrupt (more information here), so the chances of it going on sale there are probably slim to none. However, since EA has also published KOA it goes on sale on Origin once in a while. I got it for 7.5£ via GameFly, and the DLC 50% off on Origin during the last Steam sale.

FTL is already on sale for $5 at the developer site, which gives you a Steam copy anyway.

This is the cheapest it's ever been by a dollar.
Go.
Buy.

Will be curious to see if they do anything different considering they just had the big Thanks Giving sale.

Plus as an added bonus..

"Download FTL: Faster Than Light now, cross-platform, DRM free, and redeemable on Steam!"

I've been playing FTL and it's definitely worth the download. I dislike strategy games and I'm not too fond of roguelike type games either. I'm addicted to FTL. Pick it up. Play it now.

As for the winter sale, the only thing I'm really after is Torchlight 2... Since I just paid tuition for this semester, my gifting may be kept to a minimum. I'll try to make sure somebody gets something though. If you're not on my friends list, rectify that shizzz.

Sale or no sale, not buying anything this time.

I'm gonna be building a shelter to fend off the enabler hoard. We need to defend ourselves. Our fallback position will be a beach in Mexico. We'll put our backs to the ocean and defend ourselves from there.

Screw y'all. I'm breaking 500 on this sale. (and I plan on smashing through a big part of my existing pile with my time off!)

Remember survivors. There's no discussion with the Enablerz. Shoot to kill. Aim for the wallets.

Fixed that for drunken pacifist mode. Shalalm Baskur, everyone.

Spoiler:

The plan being that you'll be too drunk to even load your steam client, let alone buy something.

Hey - I bought the L4D2 four-pack but really only needed two for the most recent sale. If anyone doesn't already have, but want it, let me know. Amoebic on Steam if you want to friend up!

I see you're playing SR3 at the moment. Good choice.

Take this tactic. You can spend money on Steam. Or, you can spend money on alcohol.

Look at your pile of unplayed games. Now, look at your pile of undrunk alcohol. Which is larger?

Obviously the problem is you need to drink more. Beaches in Mexico are perfect for that.

Speaking as someone does this already, why not drink alcohol while playing games? Two birds, one stone.

I want FTL on iOS already!!!!!

Your gift MAY need assembly. Six days left. Bwahahaha

Love.it.

I'd really like to know what part of the brain makes me consider buying games just because they are below the magical $5.01 threshold, even though I would have never been interested or considered playing them before.
