We don't play games on CAG; we backlog 'em. ;)

No wonder we have no time to play games!

All we do is keep buying games; run games idly for cards; keep backlogging games; & talk about games on CAG Forums + gaming forums like it.

You mean NFS: U2 style? None of them really do. Undercover and HP don't. Shift iirc has more performance tuning... but I've tried to blackout Shift.

Dear god. With all these daily Steam sales, do you guys ever get a chance to play any of them? I've acquired over 20 games since I got my laptop last week and now I'm scared.

I knew you'll answer hah Too bad, was one of the best features in NFS U2, but I don't play NFS since MW I think so I'm kinda out from it, thanks for the answer, guess I'll pass over those two then.

This is all you really need.

Almost.

I do that in Games List form, but then I also separate them through installed / uninstalled.

I'm considering reorganizing the games by category just like other folks here have, but Steam is much faster in Games List than Games Details for me.

Disappointment. Physics was totally whacked. It paid a good bit more for it than people picking it up now for $5.* I'll be giving it another spin in the near future... I have a G27 wheel/pedals/shifter arriving before next weekend.. =D (Though shift is lower down on that list... oddly I'll probably try it with TDU2 first, over my sim-sim racers... F1 2012 should be interesting too.) (Also my old keyboard died, and until I find a replacement as responsive and that meets my needs, it's strictly controller games atm.)

*Impression is tied to price/what you paid. I thought Bulletstorm was a brilliant and racious 4 hour romp; well worth the $5 I paid for it. If I paid even $20 I would have been a bit disappointed. More typically after finishing a game, I'll feel it was worth a good bit more than what my cheapass paid for it.

How do you like the software? I been thinking about getting an expense monitoring/budgeting program and its really the only one I know of besides quicken.


It helps me be accountable with my money. It took a little getting used to at first, but it is really simple. My time on it isn't a real representation of the time I spend on it. My wife and I leave it open after a few quick minutes of entering purchases or moving money around. It might not be the style of budgeting that works for everyone, but I like it. I'd check out some videos on it to see if you like it before purchasing it.

And like a good CAG, wait for it to go on sale.

Did you have a different wheel before? Seems odd for someone who seems so into racing games to have been playing stuff like F1 without a wheel.

For what it's worth, I thought Shift was a lot more fun with a wheel than it was with a controller.

Not in a long time. I'd been trying not to pick another one up out of space needs, but I finally cracked (and the G27 came back on sale for $200 (new, shipped from B&H)). It's probably the single biggest upgrade I could have right now (since I finally lurched into the DX11 era a few weeks ago with a GTX 660 replacing my GTX 260), I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm glad to hear that from you. I've seen some comments around about Shift being rather better with a wheel.

Anyone here looking to get the 4 pack? PM me if you are, I can host. I know there's a trade thread but it seems like there's a bigger audience here.



$4/per 4-packs on GG satiated most of the demand here a week ago.

I don't know - I liked NFS: Shift 1, for the short time I played it. Don't know why I never went back - probably bought newer games and other games got in the way.

Oh, BTW - have you played NFS: Most Wanted (2012) yet...?

*Impression is tied to price/what you paid. I thought Bulletstorm was a brilliant and racious 4 hour romp; well worth the $5 I paid for it. If I paid even $20 I would have been a bit disappointed.

I thought Bulletstorm was awesome. I wish they (People Can Fly) would do a damn sequel...

"We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly,"


And of course Mike Capps had to roll out the tired old PC Piracy argument. It couldn't be that it wasn't a great PC port could it? Oh wait...

"We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't People Can Fly taken over on Gears of War development? Bulletstorm always looked pretty fun to me, but I haven't gotten a chance to pick it up yet. Any chance you it could drop below $5 for the summer sale?

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Yes.
There was going to be a Bulletstorm 2, but PCF went onto GOW.
Eventually, PCF's founder left PCF.

I don't know. {shrug}

Yeah, I doubt we'll see a Bulletstorm 2, anytime soon.

Honestly - on the piracy topic - yes, I think piracy is a major problem. If a game gets downloaded and pirated like crazy and they don't go buy the game and the game doesn't do big sales numbers, there's a problem here.
AND of course, so-called "basic PC ports" are problems, too - PC gamers don't want "basic" or "lazy" PC ports.
Throw both of these together - well, then you got already a lethal mix of problems here.
...
I didn't even factor into this that there's also console versions of this game, as well - that'll lower PC version sales (obviously).
I didn't even factor the whole G4WL DRM in the PC version, either - and PC gamers don't like G4WL.
Factor all that in, too - recipe for "Not-so-hot" sales.

Of course, we've also seen a trend where companies are just also spending probably TOO much on developing and marketing games - when companies do big sales numbers and it ain't enough to make a profit. I'm looking at what EA said about Dead Space 3's sales failing; & Square Enix calling TR 2013, Hitman: Ab, and Sleeping Dogs a sales failure.
