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

I have a quick steam question. For years normal steam behavior for me is for steam to download multiple titles at the same time. Starting a couple weeks back, steam started limiting all of my game updates and downloads to strictly one at a time. I asked a friend about it, and he says that is the way his steam installs/updates have always acted.

Am I crazy or did something change? I ran a speedtest and my connection speed is still exactly the same as it has always been. I've looked through the settings menu and performed a cursory google search but can't seem to find how/where to change this behavior in steam. Any help/tips?

Steam still does concurrent downloads for me.

You're not crazy. At least this observation you've made doesn't make you crazy. It could be other things. I don't know. Pie?

Seriously, I too have witnessed this. I've had multiple steam titles download simultaneously before but now steam does them one by one. Which is fine, as it waits one to finish downloading/installing before moving on to the next download.

I have always wondered what will happen when Steam goes under and all those nice servers where our game collections are kept for us go away... Will Steam make all of those games downloadable for us to archive? or will we just be out all that money we dropped on the sales? It has been my main issue with digital distribution since the beginning. I love it, but I'm paranoid I'm going to lose all of my collection some day.

In GOG we trust.

I still don't want to have to buy them again... :(

Ummm....pretty sure that if Valve doesn't provide a fix, the crackers already have a workaround for Steam DRM. We'll all be fine if Valve goes under. Not necessarily legal, mind you. But fine. Think of it as No-CD 2.0.

Crackers? As a 30-year-old white mother, I take offense at that.

Hah, that's ritz.

HA

So, does the world end before or after the Steam sale? I'd hate to miss it.

I dunno about you, but I actually wouldn't mind missing the end of the world.

Yeah, but chances are, it won't miss you.

Think about all the money you will save when the world ends.

However, in the off-chance it does not end, I'll celebrate through the Steam sale!

Win-win.

That's disturbing. Creative, but disturbing!

Don't be impatient; there are just 5 more days until the Winter Sale!

Spoiler:

Edited Image - It's one of my favorites but I want to be respectful of recent events.

It'll only happen once. You really want to miss out on that?

Same here.

I feel like I've actually done a decent job in reducing the size of my Steam pile in recent months. I think the only reasonable way to reward myself is with more games.

Gabe agrees.

When I saw 3 French games I could help but think of ACIII:Liberation. Taking down the French one at a time... (and some Spaniards as well) Please forgive my introduction of a handheld title into the Steam Sale thread.

Ban this sick filth. Clearly "Three French Games" refers to Ubisoft games, not Ubisoft punishment for living like ACx. Real games, such as Beyond Good and Evil, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, and Just Try to Run the Darned Game Already Without All This Semi-Always-Online/Uplay Nonsense.

Is it today?!?!

Yeah. Fire. Good old fancy-dancey fire.

You know you're in an uncivilized place when you start referring to fire as "fancy."

Because everything is funner with Futurama... oh and I keep mine next to the old pile of AOL CDs

Only 2 neglected piles?

I call shenanigans.

Unless it's 2 each?

The pile I might play, and the pile I most likely won't play..

Somehow I haven't added this thread to my favorites. Probably since i know I don't have any money to buy anything, unless it's less than the $0.86 left in my Steam wallet. Adding to favorites anyways.

I'm really just interested in whatever meta game valve has planned, despite not having anything released in 2012 except Sine Mora which was graciously gifted to me by Monkeyboy.

Regular pile, and then newly created pile from Thanksgiving sale.

Is it time for a pile of piles thread?

It was the best of piles,
it was the worst of piles,
it was the pile of wisdom,
it was the pile of foolishness,
it was the pile of belief,
it was the pile of incredulity,
it was the pile of Light,
it was the pile of Darkness,
it was the pile of hope,
it was the pile of despair.

that's a lotta piles... maybe there's a cream for that..

I named my piles Gomer.

I'm looking for random shooters during this sale. Namely:

BulletStorm
Binary Domain
Spec Ops: The Line

Some bite sized blasting to go with the winter vacation.
