I just realized this was Gabe. >.>;;

Winter Sale, my wallet is ready! I just started PC gaming this year, built myself a beast of a gaming PC. I just hope there are unique things on sale that Amazon digital hasn't already given us.


Congrats! PC Gaming may require some initial legwork, but its well worth it.

It's always nice to know who the PERSONA fans are. For whatever reason, PERSONA3 fans are less vocal than the Persona 4 ones, and I regard P3FES to be the superior of the two games. That's just me, though.

Hahaha, that Daily Deal is hilarious. The people on Valve's staff know what they're doing.

I love the Persona series too I would have to say I like Persona 4 more though even though I played Persona 3 first.

I enjoyed P3:FES a lot. I can't think of another single player game that I've sunk ~100 hours into (I generally get tired of Bethesda games after about 50-60). I think I'll probably give P4 a shot later, but I need a nice long break right now.

These packs have no DLC like they used to in the olden (2011) days so it seems like they are going to nickel and dime you for that now.

Also none of the more obscure games. No love for Flora's Fruit farm! ;)

That's Paradox for you. How many different variations of the Magicka collection are there now?

If that Ubisoft pack is $50-60 I might get it for Ass Creed 3, From Dust, and Anno.

If it's anything more, I will pass.

Also if you don't own that Square Enix pack, buy it please.

Yeah, I might grab the Daedelic pack depending on the price.

I also think that Ubisoft pack looks sweet, even though I already own Assassins Creed II and Farcry 1 and 2.

At best, that's a backlog of modest proportions. You've got a ways to go before "immense" can be handed out. ;)

Depending on price, I might have to buy those fucking Tomb Raider games. I am talking 1-6.

So... apparently there is new DLC for Rage called 'The Scorchers' that adds more outdoor areas, some items, and another difficulty level. Talk about out of left field... why did they even bother developing paid content for this? Cost is around $5... same as what they sell the base game for at this point.


Wow, this was a surprise, thanks.

Tell that to the folks who got the 4.99 Jade Empire in the last sale.


You Sir are a prophet. But don't fall for the current daily deal, it will be 80% off during the winter sale!! Valve knows how to troll.

Also if you like Gray Matter please vote for it on Greenlight.


Thanks Motoki, voted it up.

It's entirely conceivable that the Tomb Raider Collection will be 75% off at some point during the Winter Sale, making the whole shooting match $15.

That's what I was thinking.. but the problem is most people probably have Legend/Anniversary/Underworld by now.

Key is still active. It's for Adventures of Shuggy. I gave it to a girl as a present on Friday, but she's apparently an ungrateful bitch. ;) Someone should use it so it isn't wasted.

Thanks. Funny thing is, I've worked as a computer tech for many years, but never considered pc gaming. It was always consoles for me. Fortunately, steam makes the legwork minimal.

That said, I still really enjoy my consoles and I only play PC games if they support controllers to play on my HDTV.

lol I didn't notice there was a key in that post. Just wondering though, how would you know if the key is still active? I thought it was impossible to check.

Is Stronghold 3 just as bad as everyone said it was when released, or did they patch it up?

Also, concerning the 75% off sale on Crusader Kings II, how damn annoying is it that the 3 DLC's you don't own are the only ones not discounted. They need to stop excluding stuff when a game goes on deep discount.

When I go to redeem it, it says "Product Already Owned." I think that means it hasn't been used, right? Otherwise it would say "Duplicate Product Code?" I don't really know how the system works, if it checks whether the key is valid or not before checking if you own it. But I asked her if she used it yesterday, and she said "oh I forgot." That's what you get with stupid LoL fanatics. ;) If anyone who doesn't own the game tries to use it, maybe they'll be able to shed some light.

Nah, I think it says Product Already Owned regardless if the key has been used or not. You can check if it's a duplicate on a Steam account that doesn't have Shuggy tied to it, but you risk activating the key if it hasn't been used.

I hate when you give someone a key and they don't bother to activate it and also don't bother to tell you.

It takes like a minute (literally a minute because Steam takes a dump when you put in a key but still) so it's not a big deal. And if you aren't going to use it then just say so right away.

My sister does that crap to me all the time. *grumble grumble* ;)

Yes. It sucks. Seriously.

I feel like lobbying Valve to allow for trading and reselling of games just so I can give it to you so you don't waste your money on it like I did.

If you want to buy it buy it but then you must come back and tell me how much it sucked and how right I was. :lol:

Is there a way to tell if a Steam key has been redeemed without actually redeeming it?
