I appreciate whatever mod it was that came in and hamfistedly "cleaned up" the thread by deleting discussion about game collections, as well as a few deals, but leaving all of the pictures of beer. What the Fuck?

Hillarious how a 5 page discussion of a game that will never be on Steam didn't draw the wrath of the mods, but actually asking for recommendations for Steam games did? In the Steam thread? I think our thread nannies need to play more games and spend less time trolling us with mod action.

What did they snip this time? The ABC XYZ stuff?

I felt like I was the only one who wan't OCD about having games from every letter. Still, it wasn't harming anyone and if it actually gets people to play their Steam games, who cares?

From skimming, it seems that every single post related to alphabetical games collecting has been disappeared. I guess from now on we should not name games at all -- I hope pictures of game boxes are okay. Otherwise it'll be, "ooh GMG has a running and jumping game on sale." Or maybe with anagrams of game names we'll be able to fly under the radar. :lol:

They've actually been re-purposing it a bit for Windows 8. I bought 4 Elements II when it was on sale on the Windows 8 app store and that logs into your GFWL/Xbox account and has XBox achievements.


I expect the achievements/multiplayer backend stuff will remain as it's probably pretty closely related to the xbox side of things, but as a distribution platform it's dead. I wouldn't be surprised if the games I own eventually become part of the Windows 8 store, but I'd much rather have Steam codes.

That's another thing. The Windows 8 apps do pick up GFWL games in the list. They call them 'desktop apps' :-P.

My AOE III, Fable I & III etc all come up in the same list with my Win 8 app games.

We also lost the handful of posts relating to the GameFly sale, which is sort of crazy.

That we lost those posts. Not the sale. The sale is unexciting.

Right! Okay, so no more "on sale" talk in the Steam Deals thread either...
My Steam's "Daily Deal Disappointment" post it still up though. Maybe I should delete it.

That surprised me, because I didn't remember seeing them there when I checked before. So I went to my apps and watched the loading symbol spin for 4 minutes and remembered that I was never able to view the list.

To be fair, most of those gamefly games were Origin.

True, but we don't have a Gamefly or Origin thread, and I see no reason to start one. Oooh, maybe Gaben strongarmed CheapyD that if he wanted the CAG Steam group back he'd have to violently suppress all talk of Origin games on the CAG forums.

The sales have sucked lately, but that actually would probably make more people aware of the good sales when they happen.

This is what it looks like, except it's normally not that blurry. I did a snapshot of my phone on virtual desktop to my PC.

I think I will have to buy it quickly just to have the honor of owning a game that you do not own, even if it's only for 5 minutes.

CheapyD actually starts a new Gamefly thread every time they have a sale:



I cannot be arsed to look for new threads all the time. If it's not on my thread subscriptions I don't see (I don't even hit the FP.) Also those sales are usually short and weak.

We should start a new Steam thread every time they have a sale. It's only fair.



Mmm, new thread smell every single day. Do you think it'd get old?

Probably, most of us owned the non-golden version but had all the DLCs.

Meh, I paid $4 for Civ 5 (Jan 2012) and $3.15 (Dec 2012) for G&K. I still feel like I'm ahead.
