Here's a partial pay it forward, more some stuff tomorrow probably.

Theme is Christmas Movies, Go! (First letter of the answer = *)

 

Actor who played the Narrator in Frosty the Snowman (1969)

Doc Clock: Toasted Sandwich of Time - G*8NH-2WI3E-T8W9Y

 

Thank you for Doc Clock.

 

Also, I love the kindness being showed by all sort of people around here. I went to sleep last night and woke up to gifts from CAGs I had no right to get.

Are those order specific?

Well, that would be kind of terrible if it was, really it's just an excuse to use the numbered list.  But I'll go ahead and acknowledge trampolines are really my fifth favorite thing.

 

 

Also, note, list has been updated to extend to 2033.

Oh, c'mon - the (so-called) "content" that I generate is probably nowhere as exciting as anything Valve puts out.

You're right, they're not in the same stratosphere. Valve wishes they could release anything half as entertaining as your content

 

Besides, all your content is DRM free

Yeah, but...I was thinking of selling my content possibly as a Season Pass. ;)

Ugghhh. I can't shake this feeling that Steam is like a bad relationship now. I mean, at first when we met, Steam was quirky. You didn't know what the hell Steam might do. Steam would tease you with a massive 90% off "glitch" and then take it back a minute later. And you knew Steam meant to tease you, because it did it year after year. But somewhere along the line Steam lost all that charm and personality. Steam lost that randomness that kept you guessing, that made you want to be there with Steam for everything that happened, lest you miss something. Steam decided it needed to grow up, and stop being so "silly".

 

But now, Steam has got it's shit together. Steam doesn't want to tease you anymore. Steam gives you a bland discount on the base title only....what's that? You wanted a similar discount on the DLC as well? Well Fuck you, Steam makes the decisions now, and you'll like what you get! When and why did Steam decide to become so serious? No one can say. But in forgetting what made Steam great to begin with, well. Steam, I think we should see other people. And it IS you, it's not me. I haven't changed. I still remember how to have fun. It'd be nice if you let your hair down once in a while now, instead of wearing it in a tight bun while you read spreadsheets about your latest margin vs profit reports. This just isn't the Steam I fell in love with. i don't know who you are anymore Steam. There's.....there's someone new. his name is Tony, and he works for Amazon. I think we can continue to be friends. I'll still come see you once in a while, but I think I'll be spending more time with him........he treats me better. Now kindly take your so called "deals" and go Fuck yourself.

Well Fuck this. I tried to go and buy some Snow Globes to craft a badge and after 10 straight "card already sold" errors I said Fuck it.


I started doing this yesterday, then realized I'd get 8-10 more free cards to make the badge anyway.

Season Pass will NOT include everything.

There might be multiple Season Passes - still thinking about that. ;)

 

There will also be a Miscellaneous DLC's Forever Pass.

If we put out ant Misc DLC's and sell it as DLC, owning this Pass will incorporate ALL of those.

This will include level caps increase, new items DLC's, new classes, and any other Misc bullcrap we can think of.

For those who may be bummed that Long Live the Queen has a 0.000000000000001% chance to win the vote for next community deal it is 50% off now @ $5 direct from the developer's site. (You won't see the discount until you put it in the cart)
 
It's the non-Steam version BUT you can take the key you get from it and enter it to generate a Steam key here: http://nettle.spikycaterpillar.com/
 
Someone on Reddit confirmed generating the Steam key that way does work.
 
*Edit: Also I gifted it to Utopianmachine that way and she was able to redeem it for a Steam key.

That reminds me of

For the benefit of those considering Love Live the Queen and hoping that it'll be like Princess Maker, my personal opinion is that this one is a fair bit more shallow and almost completely linear due to the fixed events and the focus of the game.
 
While cute, the game is more centered around "how do I survive?" instead of the multiple endings like Princess Maker, and this is apparent when most of the in-game achievements is based on how you die, and there is a very limited number (2-3?) of winning (living) endings, reachable only if you can navigate/meet a very narrow set of requirements of certain stats check at certain points of the game. This makes the game very unsatisfying when you eventually "win".
 
I think the main problem is mostly due to the fact that the events are fixed and your path differs only by what stats you have and what limited choices you made during these events. Most of the time, you won't even be shown the available choices because you failed the stats-check in the first place!
 
Without giving more away, just say that after about the 10th or 15th time restarting and going thru the game, and seeing the same exact events again, I got really tired of trying to avoid the numerous pitfalls the game throw at you (read: meet the skills requirements).. it would have been a much better game if they had more "living" endings (it doesn't have to be a winning one) instead of priding itself on killing you.
 
It's quite the disappointment compared to the Princess Maker games really.. I remember fondly the first pie-eating contest near the start of that game, and the wide variety of endings it had..

I'm on board with the general thrust of this but I gotta admit that Amazon ain't exactly making my toes curl this sale cycle either.  I got $1.99 Aliens: Colonial Marines from Amazon but that's probably a sign of a passive-aggressive relationship if ever there was one.

Between Amazon and GMG and Humble, I got most of the stuff I wanted out of this sale already. At least the ones that were realistic and not just wishful thinking. But there is one thing that would make it perfect...

 

Here's what I want in the next sale--

Typing of the Dead: 75% off 73% on GMG, close enough

Guacamelee: 75% off Humble Store

All the pinball stuff I don't have yet: 75% off let's make this happen!!!

first, thanks djbooba for pixeljunk eden. :)

and thanks to the secret santa whom bought me Reus and Duck Tales Remastered (the steam gift message said it was from , )  I was like wtf, who's comma?

Darn it all, just as I had finished marking my second card with past sales :headache:

 

Well scratch me having any chance of winning this one, get back to me when we are on card 3.

 

Rogue Legacy is a fun, if slightly repetitive platformer that has a really addicting upgrade system wrapped around a roguelike game design. Levels are randomly generated and you will die a lot, but unlike something like say Binding of Issac you don't completely lose all progress when you die, instead you use whatever gold you have collected to level up your next heir and buy better weapons/armor/spells. Each of your descendants has a set of traits which add another layer to the game, from novelties like gastric gas, to more affecting ones like getting extra coins from broken objects or being able to use more than one spell. If you like the idea of a random platformer with a hefty challenge but a great sense of satisfaction I'd definitely pick it up. It doesn't do everything it could with the concept of traits and as I said gets a bit repetitive, but it is still a lot of fun and a great pick up and play game whether for 10 or 60 minutes.

 

Antichamber is a game that is designed to screw with you. It's mind boggling and immensely clever in how it goes about it, existing outside the normal laws of matter and logic while still making sense in the context of the world it creates. It has a slightly Portal feel to it with how you go through the game clearing different chambers (ala test chambers), but the non-linear structure of them gives it a completely different flow. You will probably need a guide to finish it, but if you are a fan of logic puzzles and abstract art you will probably find a lot to like here. 

 

Buy it, it's a really clever and beautiful game that is worth $2 without a doubt! I'm not sure if it will be bundled again after so long, but I guess anything is possible. But it's only $2, so not much to lose either way.

y u no mak copys?

 

I cant help but feel like I need a PR/Marketing type person in this BINGO effort. I work behind the scenes and they can translate my communications to something more people understand. I swear it all makes sense in my head. Are my posts like tebow's and you all just humor me?

dude, I can't understand any of that gibberish you just posted.  I took the liberty of making your post more readable. you're welcome

PS,  Thanks for organizing the CAG bingo (wish I would've remembered I suck at bingo) but it's kept me from realizing how crappy the sales have been.  PPS (Rule Change Submittal Proposal Under Consideration; 69A, Chapter 14, Section 227, Article A55; If Sunasun has a game on his card that is also concurrently in his Steam Library, he may duly mark that square.)

 

PPPS  BINGO for the last 4 cards.  

 

Bad Sales make Sunasun go something something.
