I'd rather just get a game super cheap. Whatever is the cheapest. That HASN'T been Steam's deal this sale....

But as said before... TSW is a mighty fine game.

Nobody needs any game on steam, well except for the steamworks ones. It's just nice to have.

The sentiment is mostly based upon the fact that it's an MMO and has its own launcher, updater, etc. Steam doesn't give you anything on top of that, and you can just add it as a non-Steam game if you want the Steam UI.

Or at least that's how some people feel. Me? Of course not.

Just get used to using 3 clients: STEAM, Origin, UPlay. They work pretty good.

Gah, trying to decide on GalCiv collection. So tempting, and I doubt it'll ever be cheaper, but I also know I'll likely never play the damn thing.

As long as we are on the topic of I want it on Steam so I can log my hours and its part of my "collection."
How can I get rid of this deep want for this. I could save vast amounts of money if I could get rid of this neurosis. HALP ME.
Adding games to steam as non-steam is not an option.
I bought The Secret World for full retail and AGAIN for 50% just because of this.


You could always use Raptr. It logs your time and keeps track of what games you have played.

In before someone says add it as a non-Steam game and stop bitching.


That too, though I considered that inclusive of you don't need it on (your) Steam (account).

Personally I don't think it's anyone's business what one person does or doesn't want on Steam and why but some people feel it is their god given mission in life to inform people about their opinions on others not needing a game on Steam or that they should make a shortcut.

As stated before, half my fun with GalCiv was the modding. Babylon 5 GalCiv took away many hours of my deployments.

but see with origin you get your account hacked an its IMPOSSIBLE to get it back
and uplay you can't change your user name (just kind of annoying since my emails are tied to random letter names i made for using uplay on consoles from before it was even a client)

Origin can go Fuck itself
i'm sure uplay will end up great (i just hope they take the modest route and only have ubisoft games on it)

Don't forget the people who's God given mission is to inform others about why they need games on Steam and why they don't need shortcuts. :)

Buy your Origin games on Amazon. If the above happens, just get new keys from Tony for free.

I'm so confused, they sound like the same thing to me :)

That can't be right. They just haven't fixed the price on the rest of the games, right?

Looks like the community has decided that they want to buy Quake 1 and only Quake 1. No reason to discount the Quake Collection.

Worst Steam sale ever, bar none. Nobody tell me it's because I own everything because I don't. If you don't objectively see how this has been the worst major Steam sale to date then you haven't been following the past sales for the last few years. Fortunately Amazon, GMG, and GG (lulz) have provided alternatives this winter sale season.
