GGT 253 Wished Upon Lights for the Steam Summer Sale and it Came True

Posted 11 July 2013 - 07:07 AM

Unlike last year's disappointing holiday sales i have a feeling this year's sale is going to be a lot better!

 

There will probably be a metagame dealing with trading cards. Calling it now.

 

If i'm right all of you must give me all of your steam cards. C:

Just got back from watching Monsters University and Man of Steel, and I thouroughly enjoyed both and would recommend watching them if you ever get the chance, I knew nothing about Monsters so it surprised me and I heard some bad things about Man of steel so I was happy I actually enjoyed that. 

 

 

I'll most likely be getting the KH HD collection, I hate watching games, I must play them! 

Also, I have all of the games in the series...

 

Still gotta watch Monsters. I loved the first one.

 

Well, one of the three games can only be watched so... :P

 

No, dot. No Steam cards for you.

If you loved the first one you will enjoy the new one for sure! Some references to it are in there even, pretty cool.

 

I know, and it's really stupid that they did that, luckily I've already beaten that game so I don't even know if I will re watch the cutscenes or not, might throw them on while I'm doing something else.

 

I sold all my cards yesterday for money for the sale, so I can't give out any cards now even if I wanted to :D

But the Force!

How much can you get for cards?

I usually sell them for like $0.03.

I made like ~$7-8 bucks off the ones I sold, still have to run three games to get the rest I can.

 

Most sold for like .30-.50, with a couple going a little bit higher or lower than that, nothing crazy but it's usually around a buck for each games worth of cards.

Uhh....you've sold your cards for 3 cents? You sure you're not talking about emoticons and backgrounds?

As much of a KH fan as I am, I don't think I'm getting the HD collection. 

 

 

Rather just watch it. 

 

Still gotta get myself KH:3D. 

 

The FFX collection is being released this year, right? 

 

I wasn't planning on it, but my wife begged me to pre-order when we were in GS and trading in a bunch of stuff. Since I already had Xillia paid for I figured what the hell and used some of my credit on that.

I would *love* to knock a bunch of stuff off my wishlist.  I have a feeling it's going to be like the last sale and disappointing to those of us who have amassed a large collection of Steam games. :\

 

Same here, I'm intrigued, yet I don't want to get too hyped about it.

FFX and X-2 are next on my list and I just got copies in the mail, so I won't be waiting for the HD versions :cry:

 

I wonder how bad these are going to look on my HDtv...

CAG auto-whited my background and I forget how to change it and I don't feel like looking life isn't fair.

Any specific reason you chose to get them now instead of waiting for the HD collection? I'm just wondering since it's not exactly that far away from coming out? As for how it will look on an HD, usually playing older games doesn't bother me graphics wise, but sometimes the text is just plain impossible to read, hopefully that doesn't happen since that would really suck in an RPG.

Trying to play and review the entire main series (not including MMOs) before the holidays. I've beaten IV, V, VI (just now), VII, VIII, IX, and XIII all since November. I still have the HD collection pre-ordered but I'm just in the mood to play them now.

 

Hoping to write some other articles and put together some kind of compilation when I'm all finished.

Gotcha, I actually think I've read most of your reviews, and I suppose that's a fair reason wanting to finish the series and do some write ups about them, would be kind of interesting to read an article about the whole series from somebody who recently went through them instead of having them be compared to a game you haven't played in years.

Having recently beaten FFX (for like the 20th time!) and started FFX-2, I can say that they look pretty bad on an HD TV. Not unplayable, mind you, but some textures and landscapes just look like diarrhea.

Yeah, duplicate cards, I list them for like $0.05 and they give me $0.03 and sell pretty much instantly.

That's like really low, you could be getting a good bit more than that per card, probably why they sell so fast :P

That was my original question -- what do you normally list them for? :)

I answered that before! I quoted what I said before. To give a sense of how much I made though I sold all of the cards I had on my account yesterday and went from like around a buck in Steam cash to $8.54, so I should be able to crack 10 bucks after I get the rest of the cards I can.

I made like ~$7-8 bucks off the ones I sold, still have to run three games to get the rest I can.

 

Most sold for like .30-.50, with a couple going a little bit higher or lower than that, nothing crazy but it's usually around a buck for each games worth of cards.

Yeah, listing them for 5 cents is way too low.

 

If you search for the particular game on the steam market you can see the card prices. Most cards are sold in the 20-30 cent range. There are even some cards that are worth double that much.

 

1 more hour until the summer seal!

Dude, you've been getting ripped, you can check what they're going for on that little graph before you list them.

No, my house is underwater enough as it is. :P

So glad I don't really have anything in August to interest me, other than PSN releases most likely.  Dragon's Crown is a maybe, but no cross-buy/cross-play has me hesitating.
