Maybe they've never heard of this game: http://www.unicef.org/

I'm looking forward to this Aircraft Carrier Simulator to hit green light.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Xcom Elite Soldier DLC adds flat top hair style and a lot of fruity looking colors for soldiers armor. Worth it if you want to make that one soldier named after your friend appear super fruity


Sold me.

I went to install Metro 2033 today in anticipation for metro last light coming out tomorrow and a steam message popped out saying recovering previous install file or something along those lines, I just let it do its thing and after 3-5 minutes the game was installed. I thought that was weird since I don't think I had 2033 installed previously, nothing like this has happened with steam before.

Hmm, well something must have happened last night, since mods deleted the whole potpal conversation. I don't understand mods sometimes, but maybe I went to bed before some big argument broke out that I didn't realize. Anyhow, it's always weird to come on and find the last dozen posts or so missing:-k

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

Nah, it was just a page or two of desktop vs laptop debate. I think it was a sorta-subtle nudge to keep things more on track.

Gross.

There is no track here.

I can find sales myself. I'm here for the discussions and the community.

There was some discussion, and then argument because some people need to grow the hell up. It's a shame the mods came in so heavy-handed with their deletions and got rid of a decent amount of interesting content along with the bickering.

Edit: To stay "on-topic", the new IndieRoyale went live:

Burn Zombie Burn!
Lucius
Plain Sight
Alien Shooter 2
Primal Fears
Droplitz

I think all of those have been bundled or on sale for stupidly cheap except Primal Fears.

Yeah Primal Fears is the main one I want.. but I know it probably sucks. I've played Dead Horde.. so I have my doubts that the dev can make a good game.

It's a shame, really, I loved Dead Nation on PS3 but I don't think any game on PC has done a good job of cloning that type of gameplay.

Hitman Absolution is also part of the weekly sale, it seems this game has been on sale on every digital retailer for the past month or so... and the by the way steam's price is $12.49 standard and $15 for professional (amazon has it cheaper $5/$9 pro)

The Book and Unwritten Tales and its prequel Critter Chronicles are both 75% off at $4.99. Not a bad deal if you like adventure games.

Most of the other stuff is meh though as far as I am concerned.

Thanks!
I been testing out Stack Docklet V2 here w/ RocketDock - this is nice. :D
Much better place to put all my games and whatnot - to be able to expand and close these stacked-docklets!


I'm a bit late to the discussion, but I use a program called 7-stacks to help me organize and display my games. It creates a link (which you can pin to your taskbar) to any folder on your computer and displays it in a nice pop-up style. I took all of my games -- from Steam, Origin, other download sites, and even old CD/DVD titles -- and created links to them, then organized the links into folders (and sub-folders) based on genre. Throw in some custom icons (if you want -- I decided to make it look pretty) and voila!

Some pics (right click and "open" them to make them a little bigger):
Spoiler


I made all of the icons -- once you have a template set up in the GIMP, it's very easy to find a box cover online and plop it into the template. I plan on uploading them to deviantArt when I get a chance so that others can use them, too.

Thanks for pointing this out Motoki. I enjoyed Book of Unwritten Tales so will be picking up the prequel.

Is it bad I really wanna try Postal 2, but I cant help but to think GMG will have it 75% off with a bonus 20%? which would only save me 74 cents

You could save 19 more cents over that 74 by splitting a Steam 4-pack today.

so I guess I'm the only one that still doesn't own Magicka one way or another. Seems pointless at this point to get it at this price, when it could always go cheaper or get bundled (IIRC it's been bundled at least once).

Unrelated, but what's with all you guys changing your avatars to semi parodies? First Spoderfox, and now Ashuskatty:lol: It is all becoming very confusing (though mildly amusing all the same)

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

Seriously thinking about getting the collection Eldredpe linked to. Looks fun and has a decent metacritic score of 82/73. Get all the extras for free at least.

As much as some dailies/weekend deals have sucked, this week long and variety of sales is a big step in the right direction for Steam. Hopefully the summer sale incorporates more of this variety in sales.
