Yeah, I tried for Zen first and it was already gone.

People on other forums hide them under tags, so you have to be a member. Seems like a better way to hand out codes to the community if that's what you prefer.

Just for the record, you would get a picture of a note saying "I fucked you're mother" [sic] if you asked for that from me.

Nothing personal of course, you create a scenario of delayed waiting for a picture, I have to troll.

What res is your monitor?


1680x1050.

There are also the controls to consider. It's possible I may simply prefer playing JSR with the DC controller as I did originally.

But then, I also like supporting games I like, even if at a deep discount. Or especially, rather.

Decisions, decisions...

I'm debating Jet Set Radio, as well. I have my original $2 credit for signing up and buying a game on GMG, which would make the price even better. Still, I may hold out and save that credit for another time.

Since I always like to throw this in, I'd like to reiterate how disappointed I am in SEGA for not releasing their PC ports of Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia. From what I understand, we came quite close to releases for those games before they were put aside.

I hope that one day, SEGA takes those ports out of the vault and places them on Steam.

okie. this is bugging me
I am using Steam on my Macbook.

randomly, i would get the circular red notification on the Steam Tray Icon.
I clicked on it and nothing pops up, no friend chat or whatosever.
even opening up a random chat with a friend does not remove the notification

the problem is this
it has come to my attention that these red notifications were actually convos.. but they do not appear.

any suggestions?

sorry to anyone that tried to chat but i did not reply! steam did not allow me to see your convo

No great loss. I played for a short bit today when I got home and was bored out of my mind within seconds. I'd rather embarass myself trying to figure out Spacechem than bore myself slooooooowwwwwllllly spinning a rope around a piece of wood.

I had to introduce a poor gamer to Steam today. I hope things go well for him.

I was at best buy doing trade ins to get some Steam and Amazon cards and this guy, looked to be probably in his 40s, came up to the gamer counter holding a copy of Civ 5 and was asking the kid behind the counter if it would work with Windows 8. The employees there are pretty clueless when it comes to PC games, so I stepped in. Apparently the guy had just upgraded to Windows 8 and his copy of Civ IV stopped working and he couldn't find a way to fix it so he decided to just upgrade to Civ 5.

I'm not sure how computer literate he was, but he was worried about Civ 5 having the latest patches. Explained to him it was steamworks and Steam would update with the latest patches, including the latest one that added some Windows 8 stuff. Was shocked he had no clue what Steam was. I asked him if he knew what Valve was or Half Life and he had no clue about that either. So I'm not sure how much of a gamer he was, but I told him it would be patched by Steam and he should be able to get it to run.

Hurt a little to see him pay $30 for a vanilla copy, but didn't want to offend the employees by telling him he could find it a lot cheaper online. Maybe once he installs steam and sees the store he will become a convert.

And he'll come to rue the day he met you in that Best Buy. :bouncy:

I was a bit confused too since I have yet to have too many compatibility issues with 7 or 8, but the guy was pretty adamant he had "tried everything" so I didn't push the issue or go into too much detail. Initially I thought he might be pretty game savvy, but then realized he must just like the one game. Seemed like the type to just want to go pick up the game he wants, have it work with minimal effort, and then be on his way.


Granted, I don't have Win 8...
...but it's so similar to Win 7 (from what I seen and heard) - other than the Modern UI (Metro UI).

You'd figure, if it works on Win 7, it's probably got a good shot at working on Win 8.
I ain't got problems w/ Civ 4 going on Win 7, so... [shrug]

EDIT:
Also, who'd spend $30 on Civ 5?
Amazon DVG had it ultra-cheap during BSO 2011 Sale in Jan 2012 - like $4 cheap, after that $5 off coupon.

Civ 5 actually has a "Windows 8" mode geared towards touch interfaces. I don't have a touch interface so I can't comment on the effectiveness but it certainly gives the option to start that mode.

Just noticed in the GMG thread that the following Steam games are on sale.


25% off voucher GMG25-UAAHK-6AI9S
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North $3.75 (Steamworks) with above voucher code
Jet Set Radio $3.75 (Steamworks) with above voucher code

Can anyone recommend either? I've been waiting for a good price on Jet Set Radio but haven't heard much on the HD remake. Also, LotR: War in the North looks fairly decent.

Thanks got JSR!!! :)

Okay, so I've spent like 2 hours playing Yeti Hunter today, and after those 2 hours I'm left begging the question "wtf?". Yeah, I get it's free, and seems pretty low-key, but holy crap the potential that this game has is incredible. Maybe it's just me, but this game hits all of the main points of what makes a great thriller/suspense game. It has the atmosphere, it has the edginess, but I do have a couple of big complaints with it.

Review, I guess:

Spoiler


TL;DR: Yeti Hunter is what I would call a casual game that does 2 things very well: atmosphere and thrill. Get it here. ;)
