Which is of course a play on Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. That may be the first example of the theme. He's not seen as a god, but as a magician.


Interesting. Also, maybe it doesn't need to be said but as I never watched MacGuyver as a kid, that acting is awful! Hoo, boy! I wonder if Richard grew his Sam Elliot stache in the off season and they wrote the episode around it.

Edit: Ha, new page! Daily deal is the Fallout collection. Steam sale starts on the 20th.

Nothing against Eastx, but is there a reason we defer to him to start a new thread? I mean the OP looks nice and all, but IMO it'd be better if someone who stops by here more regularly would start the new thread so the title could be updated on a more regular basis with some of the better deals as they pop up so more people could take advantage of the deals.

I nominate Louiedog! He drops in with almost every daily deal, seems organized, good CAG.

My vote would go to Louiedog too or Seamoss. Those guys are pretty good at updating OPs and titles. But I'm hesitant to put anyone's name out since I don't want anyone to feel obligated to it. Personally, I usually can't be bothered with updating the OP so I know I wouldn't be a good nominee.

And I keep running into him on Giant Bomb, as well as seeing him occasionally on my Twitter feed.

He's my favorite internet acquaintance that I know nothing about.

I believe we defer to EastX out of general CAGly respect; He had requested the position of "Steam thread host" in the past. However, he's also a family man, so he can't contribute like a diligent CAG. (I have no idea why he wouldn't want to join in with all the referential madness that has been going on for the last few pages.) Nevertheless, EastX has contributed in many ways to the game-playing community. (For example, his Walkthrough/FAQ for Bionic Commando: Rearmed got him a nice signed image by the GRiN staff.) Plus, I believe he has kept an eye on the thread, in one form or another.

This post makes me sound like his spokesperson, so I recommend PMing the man to see where he stands on the issue.

Running the op I think is second to changing the thread title. It gets more info across with less effort. Especially things like Free Weekend games can get good attention and build the community.

Oh, are you GB subscribers? If so, is it worth it? I usually lurk neogaf and youtube the quick looks.

Louiedog does a fine job with the threads that he maintains, but I don't wanna volunteer the guy for any jobs.

Having spent a good six weeks over the late spring/early summer being the only one who updated the OP of these steam threads, I know that it can start to be a real hassle after a while. Nobody knew I was doing it (unless they checked the update history) and they certainly weren't expecting it of me, so I was able to drop it without anybody really realizing that I wasn't doing it anymore. I certainly wouldn't have wanted the extra pressure of having people come in here and complain that the OP hadn't been updated yet.

If Louie says that he wants it, then I'll back him.

If you have any interest in the Fallout classics, get them before the end of 2013. At the end of that year Interplay loses the right to sell them, and who knows if Bethesda will want to at that point?

I think the premium content is often pretty great, particularly when you get Vinny behind a game that's before the current generation. Load My Last Save and Random PC Game are almost always really entertaining. At this point, there's so much premium content available that they've already done, I would recommend paying five bucks to get a month as a subscriber, watch their better past premium videos and decide if the rate that they produce new premium content combined with the other various premium perks is worth it to you to pay for more.

The other big thing, for me at least, is that you can download all of their videos as a subscriber. My current living situation has me with a less than ideal internet connection, so I like to be able to download the HD versions of the videos and watch them later, as my connection can't stream them at that quality.

Well, like I said, nothing against Eastx, but he isn't around to update the title and general CAGly respect is great and all, but the ultimate goal of any Deals thread is to get deals info out there. The thread title IMO is the best way to do so and I feel that our motivation to not update the OP as often as we should is in part due to the fact that no title = no interest = no use.

If the title is updated consistently for big deals, there is more motivation to keep the OP updated well.

Definitely no pressure. But I will say anyone who is willing to step up I'd be more than willing to volunteer at least one day a week where I would update the OP with new dailys or midweeks, etc.

I know one person that you might be talking about. The funny thing is seeing that person name in another thread and then still complaining with "subtle" hints that the Steam, xbox, and psn thread are crap. :)

Edit: Oh yeah, you people are going crazy again from reading the last couple of pages. THIS IS the calm before the storm.

I sort of agree although I got the pack and sold off the older stuff so I could get SS3 for probably a better deal than we'll see it at solo for a while (knock wood). Some people prefer FE to TSE and others vice versa. Really one of those is enough to get the feel of the franchise. I had fun with SS2 and it's design is a bit different and the style a bit wackier but it probably isn't as good as the originals. Random Encounter and Double D are just licensed crap, not really worth playing.

Random Encounter is a really cool idea with a neat style, but the difficulty curve is all over the place, to the point that even though it's only around an hour long I didn't feel like finishing it.

If you wanted SS 3 and DLC then yes this is nice. SS3 has only ever been $7.50 if memory serves. That strikes me as a lapse in judgment though. The last thing I want after a SS game is more SS. Hell, wish I had had LESS SS3

Still nothing from Steam Support. I get the feeling they don't work weekends! And since I only inquired why it was suspended, I will still have to figure out whatever to resolve it once I get a response back, another week of waiting for responses. Then come the holidays and steam winter sale too... I have a feeling I won't be getting this resolved until mid-january if I am lucky.

Not really acceptable for a multi-billion dollar retailer but what choice do I have if I want to play PC games these days?

After all this I fail to see what is so bad about Origin. The client? Just sits there it seems. Lacks cool features but very basic. Support? Actually can email, call, or live chat and get a response within minutes. "EA is so greedy!!"? And Valve isn't? You are fooling yourself if you think Valve has huge sales out of the kindness of Gabe's Heart.
