Indeed, that's what I have, a faux-account I use for things such as that.


A Facebook account for freebies is very useful. And for anyone concerned about tracking via cookies just access it with Chrome's pornIncognito mode.

I see a lot of people who have no problem signing up for an account at random websites with a spam email to get a single code, but refuse to do the same for Facebook which has yielded a ton of good free stuff for me. I don't get it.

On the Facebook thing I get not wanting to have a personal Facebook page, I got rid of mine a long time ago myself, but I don't see what the big stink is about just making a dummy Facebook account.

It's not 'your' account. You don't have to post about every time you are eating a sandwich or taking a dump, you don't have to share a bushel of magic Farmville turnips to your feed, you don't have to add any friends or put up a picture, you won't get tagged in any unflattering pictures, you can name the account Banana Pickles. It's not you.

It's basically akin to having a dummy email for signing up for stuff so you don't get spam.

I really don't care for Facebook and have no intention of participating in it (no matter how much people may try to harass me to at times) however I like deals, sales and free shit. A lot. So I have no problem making a dummy account that does not get caught up in all the social media nonsense in order to participate in those deals.

I realize like saying 'I don't have a TV' there is some counterculture hipsterosity pride in not being like the unwashed masses and having a Facebook account, however my cheapness plus the fact that it's not really having a personal Facebook account trumps any of that.

Midweek Madness:

Street Fighter X Tekken 75% off ($12.49)
Iron Front: Liberation 1944 67% off ($9.99)

Daily:
Velvet Assassin 75% off ($1.25)

Mostly "meh" for me. It's great to see Capcom coming around with their discounts though, even though I have no interest in Street Fighter X Tekken.

I find all of Facebook to be a general dumping ground for shit so why not just let everyone else suffer-through me getting freebies and discounts?

I'm tired of getting links to the funniest video ever so them having to deal with some free Metro 2033 spam is by far the lesser of those two evils.;)

I'm by no measure a hipster. However I don't have a TV, well not since The Government took my (analog) TV away. I do have a USB-stick tuner, but I rarely use it.

Apparently I'm also a "retrogrouch" when it comes to bicycles. A retro grouch has a steel frame bike with a Brooks saddle and friction shifters and thinks anything newer is garbage. Brooks is primary remaining manufacturer of leather bicycle saddles, and a former division of Raleigh

I prefer being able to proclaim with righteous zeal that I've never had a facebook account. Purity > free cookies. Besides, I've held out this long; why buckle now?

Well, crap, Capcom had NEVER put SFxT on sale until the Fall Sale, so I bought it at $24.99 then. I should have figured they would have a much better sale on it within a couple of weeks.

I require my personal Facebook account in order to know where the party at (I find events useful).

I just set all of the settings for things like this so that it posts with only me being able to see it. That way it's not throwing out dumb contests/discounts onto the feeds of people I know.

Diablo 3 'up and running' on consoles, but still not an official project at Blizzard

"We're still kind of exploring it," said Blizzard executive Rob Pardo, who was recently promoted from executive vice president of game design to chief creative officer. "We've got builds up and running on it. We're hoping to get it far enough along where we can make it an official project, but we're not quite ready to release stuff about it, but it's looking pretty cool."

Diablo 3 lead designer Jay Wilson reiterated that Blizzard is still "exploring console options" and continues to "expand and add onto the game."

Once you understand the weaknesses, it's mostly very easy. For example, it's rare for me to incur damage on the boss

I JUST beat the boss (like 5 minutes ago). First thing I did was a lap around the house fistpumping singing We are the Champions.... on easy...

Seriously though, that boss fight had DESTROYED ME multiple times... this time, it was cake.

This game was worth it in SO MANY WAYS. I just wanted to make sure all CAG'rs knew about it.

Wait, is there something ebil about digital over the air television signals? Are they secretly embedding Facebooks feeds? Is that why I suddenly feel the urge to go poke someone after watching TV on my digital antenna?

I can proclaim with righteous zeal to people on the internet I don't know and who have no way of verifying it that I do not have a Facebook account. My imaginary friend however is quite another matter. ;)

It's pretty much the new Magicka at this point. All it needs now is lots of useless DLC that gets released every 5 minutes and give it even more excuse to go on sale.

That's a little extreme. It's more like making an account at a place like greenmangaming or gog just to get the emails/coupon codes because one day you might actually want something from there. Don't even want the emails? use a fake google account. I have 12 (made during my initial purchases from the PSN store deals being different in every region). To each his/her own.

This looks very interesting. Graphic novels and adventures are right up my alley.
