It says Steamworks, but I'm not sure if that activates on Steam. Can anyone confirm?

Can confirm that even if it says Steamworks, your pocket lint will not activate on Steam. ;)

People, you're forgetting that we all will get to feel useful, knowledgeable and superior, as we squander large amounts of time posting in a thread focused on sales for a digital distribution service.

Isn't that smug high we all get to share worth it in the end?



I envy you. It annoys me, and allows my barely-beneath-the-surface contempt for humanity to surface. It's hard enough already to stave off my homocidal impulses.

It says Steamworks, but I'm not sure if that activates on Steam. Can anyone confirm?


That's not what I asked. I wanted to know if it requires steam.

If I buy this bundle, will I be able to give away the games I already have (on Xbox)?
Chumps! It's much cheaper at fraudulentkeys.ru

I do hope they stick with the 12 hour flash sales. Even better would be 24 hour flash sales :lol:

Speaking of the same shit over and over and over again are the kids still going on about Arma II/DayZ these days or have they moved on to something else?

Gone for a couple of months or so and I feel old and out of the loop with what the kids are playing these days.

Ironically, we're playing a lot of THQ titles these days.

The DayZ hype has died down a little. Plus a lot of people are now waiting for the standalone. I've been playing a little WarZ personally. Similar but not the same.

Well, Bioshock 2 came in between, and that was a step down from the first (still good, but more of a rehash), so Infinite doesn't have to worry about being the bastard stepchild, I guess.


Bioshock 2 was NOT developed by Irrational Boston.
(The then brand new) 2K Marin made it, so that was already expected to NOT be as AMAZING as Irrational Boston's awesome Bioshock 1.

EDIT:
We expect a lot out of Irrational Boston, given their history (System Shock 2, Bioshock 1 & Freedom Force series) and Ken Levine's additional history (Looking Glass).

Today's Daily Deal is The Book of Unwritten Tales for $9.99 (50% off).

For the sake of completeness, I want to note that the DLC, the Digital Extras, is $4.99 (50% off, as well.), and the package for both (The Digital Deluxe Edition.) is $12.49.

Pretty sure it has been cheaper elsewhere. GamersGate and GOG had it for cheaper, I THINK.

For anyone who grabbed AirBuccaneers in the IndieFortChampionship bundle (or otherwise on GamersGate?), a Steam key should be available in your GamersGate account. I had one waiting, anyway.

Sweet, I remember hearing that would happen. Glad it finally did.

Ti's never had sound or at least any model from the 83-89. It amazes me that people still make games for the 83 when the 89 is vastly superior and is used in every calc class.

To get back on track though. Anyone know when the new Skyrim DLC drops?


TI-89s were not allowed in any of my math classes, from calculus to DiffEq. I think 2 out of my three physics classes allowed them...

For those that asked if the OMD2 DLC is worth it.. I can say that the Are We Yeti DLC is worth buying for the missle launcher alone. That thing is the best weapon in the game, incredibly powerful and has a high chance to stun any enemy with the primary attack. Combined with the mana trinket, you're unstoppable. Might make the game too easy for some, but it's fun to play with. I think my favorite DLC traps are the Web Spinner and Dart Spitter. The new levels from each DLC aren't anything special, but they're a nice addition to the game. I would recommend getting them all, but if you only get one I'd go for Are We Yeti. They're all currently 75% off (including the base/complete game). Just finished playing through the DLC with Seraphym.

Is the SR3 season pass worth it?
Should I buy game x?
Will game x go on sale?
Will game x be cheaper?
Is this the cheapest game x has been?
Bit on game x, I've been waiting for a sale and 33% off is pretty good...*thread rage* You are doing it wrong!
Can I get one of those Skyrim keys?

I don't need game #32 from the $10 Hundred-Game-Megabundle. Who wants to buy it for $9?

I haven't had any math in awhile, but I also remember them being prohibited, as they were a little too powerful. 89s can run derivatives/integrals, right?

Yep. And partial fraction expansions. Its symbolic package is pretty darn good. (the reason I got a TI-92, despite being a dyed-in-the-wool HP & RPN calculator fan).

Simple click to cancel on the screen after activating. I'm sure we'd have the reverse complain if it was the other way. I just wish steam adding a throttling option to downloading, since it tends to choke bandwidth like nothing else.

After activating...
When it says it's ready to install and shows the amount of GB it takes up, I just hit cancel.

I just wish it was a little simpler instead of saying "INSTALL NOW". Like.. Desura. ;)

Very true though. If it didn't I'd be like "wai duz it not say instal now!??"

It's an extra click, and not one that you can just spam click. For a few games, it's not really an issue, but when you're activating 10+ keys in succession....

It's not that bad and I rather they asked when I activate the key then have to go find it in the library and click install. Easier just to hit cancel even when activating a lot of keys. I'm more annoyed at how Steam shits itself when you activate a key.

I wish Steam would let me download faster than 2.4mbps. Does anyone average anything faster, or is that the norm?

I hardly ever want to install a game right after activating it, and it puts news games in the "GAMES" category anyway, so they're never hard to find. (I move all of my games into custom categories.)

The freezing, however, is something I very much agree with.

If you're talking about 2.4Mb/s (0.3MB/s; 300kB/s), then that's pretty slow - I get between 600kB/s and 1.2MB/s (max line speed) depending which content servers I'm connected to.

If you're talking about 2.4MB/s (2400kB/s), then (as above) I don't see any problem - that's faster than my connection is capable of.

There is a 50/50 chance I'll install a game when I activate it. I don't use custom categories as I prefer everything to be in alphabetical order, the downside of that is, since I have a large amount of games it is a hassle to scroll and quicker and easier to grab the scroll bar now to move through my library quickly heh.
