Velcro? Don't feel bad spending your kids money! ;)


Sarcasm on the velcro :D I have a lousy leather wallet. I did have a wallet made out of duct tape when I was younger.

T'was the night before Steamsmas,
And all through the flat,
Not a creature was stirring,
'cept for one loafing cat,
The stockings were hung,
But not as much as me,
And they were all filled with presents,
Though non-digitally,
I was clad in my jammies,
And my wife in her mask,
We were newly unconscious,
After nursing a flask,
When up on the rooftops,
What on earth should I hear?
It was Gabe Newell in costume,
Complete with red suit and beard!
He was tow'ring above us,
With a generous smile,
And in the back of his hovercraft,
He had this year's Gift Pile!
But were we naughty or nice?
Good ol' Gabe didn't care,
If we earned holiday achievements,
We'd all get our share!
But money was tight,
How could we afford games?
Gabe smiled at us sagely,
And spoke our user names.
He then gave a bellow,
That shook through the town,
And all the Steam prices,
Came clattering down,
We rejoiced and we thanked him,
Our lungs vomiting mirth,
Now Gabe knew he was done,
And departed the Earth,
He gave the most jolly shout,
Leaving our atmosphere:
"Happy Steamsmas to all,
And a Happy New Year!"


Awesome 8-)

you people

Amazon had it in a Paradox pack awhile back during summer. So if your not getting it this sale, look for a pack with it in.



12/23-12/25:
Plentiful Paradox Package _-_9.99
Pint Sized Paradox Package _-_5.99
Plentiful Paradox Package _-_9.99
Plethora of Paradox Games _-_19.99

Cheers,
Tony



Looks like those Paradox packs will be on sale again in a couple of days.....

Pint size was looking attractive, until I realized it didn't include the base game, just some of the DLC. The next pack up wasn't all that attractive. (Magicka again? Already own the first Sword Of The Stars from last year...)

Maybe the best option will be buying a key from someone who already bought one of these packs....

This sales become less and less enticing as you build a larger game library, but Valve still seems to take money from me.

I'm expecting to spend at least $100.

I've consistently spent $500-600 per sale the last 4 years. I think as the game library grows, the quality of sales diminishes.

See, that's what we always think...

And then last sale I blew an unprecidented amount.

I'm hoping not to spend more than $75 between my husband and I this sale... We'll see. So many of the games I want are newer games, which are less likely to receive 75% off discounts.

I can't even imagine spending a fifth of that even if I bought every single game I actually wanted.

Same here my Steam says I have 187 games and I will still probably spend at least $100 if not $150 I got the money and it'll make my wants for the winter sale next year to not be so high in cost for the overall total.

I wonder how many "a game on your wishlist is on sale" emails I will get at 1pm?


Which is why I scrambled to turn it off after I got my first one.

Sale better start in an hour or so...I haven't been drinking vodka for nothing! Gotta loosen up the velcro on that wallet :D


Did you drink as often before you got to Korea, or is it the culture there?

I agree, the distribution of the games in the packs are not optimal.

I bow down to the might of your collection. I was actually shocked that when I posted a bunch of keys the other day that I had one that you didn't have (Jet Set Radio).

When I grow up I want to be like you.

I'd guess Amazon finds the distribution quite optimal.

After DLC and games removed from the catalog, probably near or a bit more than 4k.

In the reviews for Pint Size, someone said they called Amazon and they said that it is Paradox that decides whats in the packs.
