What's funny about this is that you've spent infinitely more time whining about CS:GO than you have actually playing it.
Actually nope. I've put about 4 hours of actual playtime into it (for some reason Steam didn't count entire first play session, so my time played is off). Hasn't taken anywhere near that to type my observations and complaints. I reinstalled it yesterday and gave it another chance because I wanted to see if I could get any drops, played for awhile, continued disliking the game, and then tried idling on an idle server for awhile. Nothing there either, so I dunno.
Also, you're English! It's *whinging!
Actually, I think he's just being nice and answering/replying back...
Pretty much. Zenii or whatever his name was just pulled the "No, the game is good, you just suck." line, and I couldn't help but reply to that. Deuterium made a civil, reasonable reply and gave him one back. I can understand the appeal of the game to some people, and obviously the game still has merit, I was just offering my (admittedly brutal) opinion on the game.
Internet = Opinions
Or in his case 'Honey let's say goodnight and log out in our virtual House in Perfect World. I can't someone is wrong on the internet!'
Thankfully she hasn't badgered me to play it in awhile. It's so damn boring...
Saw this pic and read the expansion as Hymen of Chaos, and thought "Man, I know Perfect World is trying to cater to a certain demographic but they must be getting pretty desperate here..."
As did I.
I'm nice to lots of people, just not you.
That doesn't sound right. Why buy them if not to play them?
If you're worried about ... DRM ...
Don't take it too literally when you hear people around here say "we don't play games, we collect them."
That's true to some extent, because many regulars spend a lot of time monitoring deals and buying games, but they also play a few too... whether or not they will admit to it. It's really just a way of making fun of yourself for spending so much time on the meta-game of getting deals.
Comparative to how many games we buy, saying "We don't play games" is accurate in a way. But naturally we play tons of games.
Neuro wears out keyboards playing Borderlands.
Motoki plays old lady death simulators, hidden object games, and weeaboo VNs even though he claims to hate weeaboo stuff.
Mooby plays 2deep4u indie games so that he can accurately say that they suck.
Spoder plays just about anything if it has co-op, even if it's fucking awful, to completion.
Dr. Sasquatch plays everything, all the time, ever.
And I play a random assortment of shit, but usually just end up getting hooked on games now and then (like Skyrim, State of Decay, XCOM, etc).
I never said the cards paid for the games they came from. I've yet to manage to sell cards for a game before I bought it. That being said, I've had plenty of bundles pay for themselves thanks to card sales, particularly older Groupees offerings. But no, you'll never make back the purchase price buying a game directly through Steam, and I would never claim that.
Actually making back the purchase prices HAS happened in the past, OUT of the card beta. I believe Zack Zero was one of those cases (though I didn't jump on that one, had no interest in the game), Triple Town, and most notably Drunken Robot Pornography. You could buy DRP out of a 4-pack and actually MAKE money if you got the right drops. I made out like a bandit on that one.
Most recently you could buy Vanguard Princess for $4 on Steam and make $2.50 back on cards, or you could buy from some buyers in the Steam thread for $2 and actually make money.
Generally speaking though, most games have cards worth a pitiful 10-15 cents these days, so you're seldom making your money back.
