I'm kind of a big fan of seeing what I'm buying. This had poopies written all over it.
No more, people! Show 'em who's boss!
Liking, while at the same time sending 85c to Fox without even glancing at what's in the Gala Greenlight. Not sure if that's an indictment of Groupees, an endorsement of Gala, or my Paypal's Pavlovian response.
He took credit though, he didn't have to. I kind of get the desire to jump on them quick, during the last Steam sale for instance that list is probably gone in 2 or 3 minutes tops, mostly to lurkers. I wouldn't have taken eight, but it wasn't up to me to decide who got what.
Ultimately, it's the OP's choice. If wanted to do it differently, he could have. I see a lot of people blaming people for giving away codes like that, but here's the deal. It's their code, and they can give them away however they like. They do it knowing full well lurkers, or one poster could get them all.
Which is why on the rare (twice?) occasion I drop codes, I do something as simple as say, first quote gets it. Not as much of a hassle as PMs and not a free for fucking all for the shitstains.
I don't always use the keys for myself. A lot of times I use them to give members of my family nice little surprises. I just call up my sister and/or brother and am all like "Hey check out your Steam account." and they'll be all like "Thanks this totally made my day n' stuff." cause I like to do cool things for my siblings once and a while.
I access their accounts for them. They give me access for that specific reason.
First I was like, bullshit, but then I was proxy lurking? For fuck's sake, dude.
For now, until they fix the layout. I doubt this is permanent, makes no sense to not let you view keys from IR. Many people that buy IR bundles don't even use Desura, so it'd be a hassle for them to get keys from there.
Implying that they give a shit? You droll motherfucker you.
I like it because of the sheer amount of freedom you're given to do pretty much whatever you want and go wherever you want. It's just this huge world to explore and so much of it is packed with interesting, compelling things to find so it's easy to lose yourself in it. More so than a lot of RPGs The Elder Scrolls actually feels like I'm role playing another person in a totally foreign place, and I find that really interesting. Then there's the extremely addicting, free form leveling system that let's you create God knows how many different kinds of characters, the crazy deep lore that you can literally pick up and read for hours, all the random items you can find and experiment with...there's just so much to see and do, which is what I (and I feel most others) find so compelling about it. It doesn't have the same sort of direction and back to back set pieces you see in a lot of other AAA games now, so if you like more direction in your games it might not be the sort of game you enjoy, but otherwise it's hard for me to see how most people wouldn't enjoy it or at least be able to appreciate it for what it is.
The first thing I do in almost every game that lets you explore is immediately go in the opposite direction that it tries to herd you. I think the first time I played Morrowind (never finished it) I followed the coastline around the continent. I also think I tried to cross some mountains and ended up being eaten by some dark elf thing. I need to find my discs.
Whodathunk this would be a polarizing bundle. I'm sure some stats geek out there has run the numbers on Greenlight bundles. McDroid got a key a few days ago and that puts the first IR Debut bundle at 3/8 for keys after a year and a half. I'd rather spend the $1.50 on something that has Steam keys now. Or wait for the non-shitty games to show up in another bundle and then get them from Tremor.
