I don't know what ELSE to talk about though... I'm not spending money on DS because I hear NOTHING good about it (that wasn't better on a console).

I will ask... how can I find if someone would have copies of HL/HL2 for Steam they'd be willing to sell or trade? I know I've seen the half-life complete stuff on sale but I really don't remember it on the Summer Sale but I've been debating finally trying the series.

Oh I agree all this stuff so far is like DUH why the hell didn't you have this in the first place, but I guess for them it's a big deal. Posted Image

The group forums thing looks nice; better than trying to hold a conversation via comments. The rest didn't move me much either way.

iPad has had that for quite a while now.

You know what Android DOES have quite a few of? Hacks, Viruses, Keyloggers, and the like.

Android is AWESOME. /s


I know. I don't have one of them there iThingies. I do have a Nook Color w/CM7 and a Nexus 7 on pre-order (still waiting -- it was a good deal). Seven inch tablets fit in all my purses (this is a big big plus). That and I'd always choose my MacBook Air over a 10 incher.

Honestly I've never had a problem with malware on Android, but I don't go installing software like Angry Birdzzz all willy nilly (though I have ~100 apps). I tend to use it for web, reference materials, videos, and the occasional game.

Too strong of a statement imo. Admittedly the HIB Android releases haven't hit that wow factor. But there are other releases that have their fanbase, Final Fantasy 1, Final Fantasy III (based on the NDS remake). I am personally looking forward to the upcoming port of The Bard's Tale (2004 version) to Android.

But that's the thing. Those are all ports, and I don't even care for JRPGs to begin with. Bard's Tale was raucously entertaining but it was a middling hack and slash that would be awful on virtual sticks.

I mean, on Ios, if we're counting really good games, that number is quite small. Android is almost by definition going to have a much smaller number.

That happens to me sometimes too. Usually I restart Steam and find I have a ton of pop-up Steam ads awaiting (today there were 9). It's like it chokes Steam or something....


Also, with the new Steam features stuff and the TF2 MvM coop going live soon, I wouldn't be surprised if there's even more downtime imminent.

I agree, but so far very few developers are willing to commit medium/significant resources to phone/tablet game, and if they are hitting any platforms makes good business sense. That's why I like ports, games that had been given a nice level of development resources. Emulators count in that too (though are less point-and-drool in setup).

Brace yourself, you may be in for a bit of a shock. Welcome to 2012. The Olympics are over. Steam is being challenged in sales by a handful of upstarts in the Digital Download market. The apocalypse hasn't happened (yet).

In other news forum goers on CAG have discovered 2010 man.

Sad thing is I paid like 38ish during the sale just for kings bounty and the death to spies bundles with necrovision and cryostatis :wall: This is why buying a ton of games ahead of time is a bad idea.

I'll have to be honest, I'm tempted to double dip at that price. I paid $21 for the Gamersgate bundle. $1.27 for Indie Gala 7. $14.99 more would still put me under $40 for the bundle.

>,< I know what you mean. It made me regret my indiegala purchase (Death to Spies & Big Rig). I don't feel as bad about picking up King's Bounty Platinum for $5 on Amazon a few months back. And a couple things from Paradox/Pint-sized Paradox pack (Amazon).

On the bright side, check the bottom of that post Tony is saying individual steam keys.

Bought on gamersgate, still haven't touched any of the games. I will still buy a copy or two of this, one for me, one for gifting purposes.

It's beautiful isn't it.

Full Disclosure: I'm totally with giving away/trading unwanted keys. Steamgifts has grown into something else. I doubt I'll ever register.

Oh, and I'm certain I'll double dip, if for no other reason for some of those racing games I could never bring myself to buy separately.

Kind of makes the Indie Gala 7 a waste of money. You know, the whole $2 or less that most of us paid for it. :-P

Great deal although I think I pretty much got most of the 1C stuff I wanted from the Gala. Space Rangers 2 is getting a remake with additional content soon so I'm putting that off. Maybe I'd want the Star Wolf sequels but I heard those are pretty bad.

Enough people paid me for my IG7 group buy with Amazon gift cards that I'll probably pick up the 1C bundle from Amazon and add it to the list of games I'll never play. Sleeping Dogs has been great which measn my backlog is just going to keep getting bigger.

That said, if the HIBA3 comes with Steam keys, I'm in for a dollar for Fieldrunners... otherwise I'll pass since I own the rest and don't game on my phone.
