I've got a steam tradeable copy of torchlight 2 for $7.50 from the flash deal 4-pack if anyone wants it
I've been listing it in the trade / group buy thread but no one seems to want it and i'm worried the price will go down before I sell it negating the $2.50 I saved by doing the 4-pack in the first place
so pm me if anyone wants it

I wish you could add tags to games and then have a checkbox system. If I want to play a fps/rpg I check those boxes and the games with both those tags show.

I think $10 solo or $7.50 as part of a 4 pack is the lowest T2 will be going for the duration of this sale so you priced it just fine. Gamefly couldn't even beat that and they were spanking the hell out of Steam in other areas like X-Com.

I guess a lot of CAGs just already have it.

There's always a chance for a Gamersgate frak up but barring that I just don't see it going less than $7.50 for the time being.

That would be nice. I don't have as many games as Anarchy (I mean, damn!) but I find I can never completely organize my games because some are FPS & RPG, or RPG & Strategy, and I wind up categorizing them by whichever genre dominates the game. It'd be nice to be able to just tag a game for each of its genre and find a list accordingly. So Fallout 3 would be covered in RPG, Open World, and FPS.

Man, I know it's stupid as Fuck but I really wish Steam achievements were like 360. Some kind of score meta-game. Or easier to compare with friends or something.

I think that's as low as it has been so far, at least that I have seen.

Eh, it's up to you. I guess how much do you like vampires and/or do you want to use mods that require it?

It will go cheaper eventually. There's another DLC due out soon-ish so there's potential for the older DLC to be marked down further then.

I wish they would do like a graph or something. I think it would be cool when you clicked achievements if it should you several that let you know your ranking. So for instance the first could show where you rank against ALL other steam members for total achievements, another shows for the % you achieved for each game you have played etc etc. Kind of like when you are a kid and the Dr tells you that you are in the top ninty percentile for your height.

A real epeen measurer, you would know how you rank in multiple ways both against friends and the steam community at large.

Yeah my pops just got Win 8, but I don't see a need to change from Win 7, and I like my games lol. What are the biggest flaws so far when you used it? I told him not to get something like an OS in its early stages

Theme is pretty good, just alot to download and apply. & lol I was wondering how you got Steam to look like that, appreciate it!

& yeah, happy holidays y'all.

When I tried it, the metro start menu is just not good to use with mouse/keyboard, yes there are 3rd party apps you can use to hide it and everything, but they all want more money :P (luckily I only paid $15 for windows 8 so not a huge loss, when it does eventually work, if that ever happens, I will most likely use it on another build that isn't for gaming)

the deal-breaker was that a lot of my games just had compatibility issues. Beyond the metro start menu it is a skinned windows 7 that just breaks all your stuff you have come to use alot of apps/games.

is it pretty? yes, the visual appearance of W8 is great, at least to me

Does it work? No...just no. To me, W7 just works.

and Merry Christmas! to those who are celebrating tomorrow. If you don't then Happy Holidays to you :)

Yeah. Something similar to what giantbomb does. And keeps track of your "S" ranks (games you've 100%'ed) across all platforms.

I rather like the fact that there's no metagame involved with their achievement system. Gamescore on the 360 & PS3 reflects more on the number of games a person has played, rather than being a reliable measure of skill. IMHO it's far more impressive to see someone who has 100%ed a single difficult game rather than complete 10 or 20 easy games.

It's getting hard to remember when I was excited by a Steam sale. Last year's lethal coal debacle; lame Summer, Fall and now Christmas sales. Just terrible, terrible, terrible. The only good deals are for those just now joining the ranks of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race and needed an inexpensive jump-start to their collections. A friend gifted me some credit into my Steam wallet and even for free, there's no deals.

I have a completely different standard. I'm more impressed by people who have completed a bunch of games than someone who has finished one hard one, especially in the age of the internet. I had a buddy finish Dark Souls, and bragged about it to no end, but he watched YouTube videos for every major boss battle, so what did he personally accomplish? I think my 50k gamerscore means bunk, but my 182 games beaten, I'm proud of that.
