Another foil! Madness! Is today Foil Day or something???

 

Okay, so this one is only worth 50 cents (from Stacking, I just added the key to my library last night).  Still, I'll take it.

Micro Center is selling Black Ops 2 for $9.99, In-Store Pickup Only. You might want to give it a shot if you have one near you. This is probably the cheapest price BO2 is gonna be while Activision exists.

Thanks for this; I got the last one in Tustin, CA.

Nice, luckily they let you do online order and pickup/pay later.  So you can just reserve a copy

 

Anyone know if BLOPS2 is always steam activated?

That's what I did; I was to in a rush to find my credit card and that "1 left" had me worried. All the CoD games after 4 are always Steam activated.

I just looked this up, and according to the forums, it is. During the CD install, you need to activate a code via Steam to complete the installation.

The whole retail versus digital downloads/steam is missing the most significant point:

 

Prices.  Digital download prices are far better than retail on regular and deep sales.  Prices for retail PC games usually only drop with MSRP cuts, and go on the occasional weak sale.  If you're lucky you can fish something decent out of the bargain bin.

 

I was a physical die-hard until digital download prices started getting attractive.

 

I went into Fry's a couple weeks ago to pickup a watch battery and took a quick poke into their PC games section.  Wow it had really shrunk.  It used to take over an isle, now it takes maybe a 10th of that.  Odd notable: $2 clearance priced (down from $15) Hello Kitty Online (F2P credits).  I was tempted to grab it for the paraphernalia value.  (I've actually had HKO installed for years.)  Which reminds me, I'd like to get back to TDU2.

Even if the Santa Clara, CA Microcenter was still around, I'm not sure I could be bothered to make the trip over there.

Open SAM, window shows all your games, double click a game, second window pops up, idle. If game is not shown in first window, goto Steam store/client and get the game ID (store.steampowered.com/app/######) and put that in.

Deals? People are trying to have conversation here. You thought this was about deals?

 

Anyhoo...

 

Krater 80% off midweek, Resident Evil Revelations 50% off midweek and RPG Maker which is becoming the Magicka of software (ninjaed! :-P) at 66% off DotD.

 

So about Dream Machine Chapter 4. Do we get that if we got it in Indie Royale or no? I forget.

Okay, so this one is only worth 50 cents (from Stacking, I just added the key to my library last night). Still, I'll take it.

I just pretend like foils don't exist, because in my world they don't. 1 foil in over 250 drops while others get multiples in the same day is ridiculously annoying. Someone posted during summer sale that they had 4 foils in 16 drops or something to that effect. I guess Valve hates me.

Edit: 256 drops and the one foil was in the first 20. I've gone over 230 drops without another. Lame.

It opens up a 2nd windo with the option to unlock all achievements or pick and choose. Is that window open idleing or is there a button I have to hit?

Thats it, just leave that window open

 

If you go back to your steam client and hover over the bottom right corner where it lists your name, you'll see it says your in game

It seems like we're getting drops at a similar pace.

 

If it gives you happy feelings to know someone got shitted on slightly more than you, I've had 250+ drops without a foil.

That sucks, guys.  I know the feeling, because I didn't get any foils my first 130 drops or so while others were making a mint selling them during the beta.  If it helps, I have yet to make any money off of the foils I have gotten.  Perhaps I'm being too greedy, but after waiting this long I feel like Valve owes me something...

80% off is the new 75% off or GTFO. At least for the indie games. :)

 

Any thoughts on Krater after all the patches? I'll be spending essentially my free Gaben bucks, but unfortunately the time investment isn't free.  Sounds like the co-op is pretty half-baked with co-op specific missions, so I think I've decided against the 2-pack.

It has a button that allows you to wipe your achievements for a specified game. Some people like to reset and get them again, I guess. It can also be helpful for problematic, bugged achievements.
