I don't think this was posted, but I've been having trouble keeping up lately. Dates for sales and a price on everyone's favorite unicorn game.

Well, I found it on reddit. It wasn't my sleuth skills. Often when I see sale related news there like this it's already been mentioned here.

The soundtrack (the really, really awesome one) from Hotline Miami has just been added to the Game Music Bundle.

You'll have to be quick, only 12 hours left.


Thanks for the reminder - didn't realize it was expiring this soon.

So Two Worlds II Velvet Edition is about 15 cents right now in the Russian steam store. Any Russians here? xD

Good looking out! I've been interested in it for a while, and snagged a copy over at tf2outpost for 2 TF2 keys -- over paying on its 'actual' worth but it was a quick and easy trade, so worth it in my mind.

Did you got the beta? If you did, it got converted to the demo, and, oddly enough, only steam support can remove it from the list.

Random question, but does Gamestop/Best Buy charge tax on Steam cards?

I have way too many games... but I've been feeling the itch to buy MOAR GAMEZ! Bring it on, Steam.

They don't. But if Steam taxes you they will still tax you out of your wallet funds. There's no way around the tax.

I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested

I don't think gamestop did. But I could be remembering it wrong, last time I got one was during the summer sale. I don't know if best buy does but I'll be getting one there tomorrow so I'll let you know.

Probably not. I've never been taxed on gift cards. (I'm in Cali fwiw)

As a 120gb SSD user , HOW!? Do you not manage what games you have installed at all?

By the time that download is finished you can order a new hard drive and have it delivered to hold the rest of the game.

I manage my games by having them all installed. I play most games on a whim, if it's not installed, it's not getting played.

According to forums I guess it is a higher quality graphics mode with uncompressed textures and better DX11 effects? Might explain the gigantic file size.

If I own it and there's a chance in hell I might play it, I want it installed. To me, my steam library is analogous to my shelf of PS2 games, a large library a couple of clicks away. The other half of that 2TB has been reserved for Steam (I've just been using it for temporary data dump).

Also my connection is 6 Mbps, which is ~2.5 GB/hour. Steam downloads tend to jam up my connection increasing latency even for web surfing and renders streaming video near impossible. I prefer to do my downloads overnight or other non-use times.

I know the the feeling though, my laptops have 256GB and 160GB SSDs.

I manage my games by having them all installed. I play most games on a whim, if it's not installed, it's not getting played.

This!

I also tend to add any steam keys to steam right away just so I don't forget that I own those games. Doesn't always work. :D

There's this little thing called texture compression... It's well standardized on the PC. Mobile graphics is lacking any widely used standard, resulting in the OMG-Bloat size of some mobile games.

Also compressed textures require less memory and bandwidth, resulting in better performance (when memory and bandwidth are stressed).

Probably, at worst it would be the same price as it is with the coupon.
