Man, I never get Russians wanting to give me games for hats.

The one little minx who used to hit me up for Trine 2 will have to live with disappointment since I traded it to a friend for Unstoppable Gorg. He got the better end of that trade by any measure but, after Trine 2 sat for a year in my inventory, I figured I'd do him the Yuletide solid.


I had a Croatian who wanted to trade a pair of socks for Magicka once. Or maybe that was just a weird dream I had.

The inventory has separate privacy settings.


Keys are fine so long as they redeem on Steam and aren't exploited.



Oh duh, how did I not know this?

And yeah, keys should be fine on SG. Just give away what you say you are going to give away in a reasonable time frame and you should be good.

With the inventory thing, I know some people like to look at the inventory of people doing a giveaway (if it's giftable) but that's mainly if there's something like Far Cry 3 and people are suspicious that it's a trick.

I don't think anyone will be running to someone's inventory to make sure they really have Coconut Queen. :-P

I would have been all over that deal. Toss in some underwear and I'll provide the DLC.

Re: Steam Gifts, I always lead off with "This gift will be in the form of a Steam key e-mailed to you. Please be sure your e-mail is correct".

That way, it heads off any "Is it in his inventory?" queries right from the start as well as putting the onus of a correct e-mail on them immediately. Don't sweat if you didn't say it, just a tip for next time.

Solar 2 is a fun mindless game where you get to be a black hole. I loved it.

It's kinda like Osmos meets Universe Sandbox. Ive already sank about four hours into it. The demo is only about 45mb. You should check it out.

In my experience if you sit on a hat, its value goes way down (except baseball and floppy hats).

FTL is great and worth every penny. I wouldn't expect it to drop much more than that any time soon either. It was a kick starter and the dev has been very clear he doesn't want to lower prices much lower and risk pissing off his fan base. I'm looking at you botanicula.

What are some older games that are like FTL? Maybe something in a bundle before? I hear so much praise for it, but I look at it and just doesn't look like something I would enjoy so I'd rather give something I already own a spin to see if I would like that style of gameplay.

It's a roguelikelike space sim, I'm not sure if you CAN find anything to judge it against.

The best port of call is YouTube to look at some "Let's Play" videos as they'll give a good idea of what FTL is about.

For me? Highly recommended. Some will hate it though.

I'm still hoping for the demo of FTL to come out. Tempted at $5 again though. Also it's $5 at the dev's site, which gives steam+drm free. http://www.ftlgame.com/

From the FTL site.

Is there a demo to test it?

We hope to release a demo shortly after release, but currently there is not one.

I'm at the point where my mind becomes fragmented when I try to decide on what to play. I'm thinking I might try to play I Am Alive, but then there's Dead Rising 2: OTR that I've already sunk four hours into. That's not to mention the hulking beast that has become Civ 5. I still haven't won a match, and I shaq-fu-like-you-wouldn't-believe hate not winning.

My backlog is just so big, I don't know where to start.

This is the game I've played most similar to FTL: http://www.desura.co...-infinite-space

It was in an Indie Royale.

Are you suggesting that we're doing wrong? The winter sales reinforced the fact that if you're busy playing your games you might miss out on a great price cut.

I'd watch some YouTube videos on it. It is the type of game that absorbs your life in a one more turn type of way. Graphics are simple but gameplay is great. It's on many game of the year lists.

I will try and describe it but it's hard to do it justice. Basically it's a space exploration rougelike. You are a good citizen and need to inform the military fleet that you rebels are coming. You hop planet system to planet system trying to evade the rebel fleet and other dangers. You will lose the game many times before beating it.

What makes it great is the journey getting there. You will encounter various random events and have to choose how to act. You find a pirate attacking a civilian ship, do you help, leave, offer to split the profits with the pirate, etc. you encounter a colony with a distress signal, they have had a plague do you help or flee. The risk and rewards are great. Helping may net you an extra crew member or a new weapon but it may also give your entire crew the plague and kill them. There are lots of interesting scenarios.

I normally don't like rouge likes because I like a sense of progression and hate starting over. This game feels ok to me because you can unlock new ships and upgrades as you make certain choices in the game that can carry over to the next game.

Also combat is intense, strategic, and fun.

On the backlog topic, I'm trying out playing one game from each letter in order. I wonder how long I'll stick to that though.
