Not a deal so much as a request for assistance: I'm wanting to get the badge for Doctor Who: The Adventure Games, but I'm missing 6 cards and because the game was delisted, I can't buy them from the market. Does anyone have cards for this game they'd be willing to trade for summer sale cards or other cards? I put feelers out to a couple of my Steam friends but got no response. If you're in a position to help and willing to, shoot me a PM and I'll add you on Steam. Thanks.

If that's the one from the bundlestars bundle I've done nothing with it so I would be more than willing to help.

 

Edit: It is.  I'm idling it now for you.

Does anyone know if playtime logged in on an alternate account using family sharing counts towards the 2 hour playtime limit for refunds?

Bundlestars has Batman Arkham Knight for $4.74 if you use the RED5 discount code at checkout.

 

The season pass is the same price too.

I hate this time of year.

 

Dog has been hiding for about 4 hours because stupid neighbors have to set off a firework every night for a week or so before the 4th and will continue to do so until the fireworks are all sold out (usually August).

 

Oh... Yeah, steam thread...  Something on topic...

You can pay $3 and get a large Dominos when you redeem a rewards free pizza.

 My 5 year-old house dog isn't a hider but an anxiety barker at loud noises and this year has been a nutty summer with fireworks so far.

 

Back on topic, what is this $3 pizza you speak of?

This may sound dumb, is there any point to the cards? I just sell them all, I usually get common ones but if I actually complete card sets will I get lower prices on future purchases? Or anything useful at all?

 

As some others have mentioned the only purpose for cards (outside of selling them for free Steam credit) is crafting card sets into badges, which level up your Steam account (higher levels give you more friend slots and profile showcases) and give you profile backgrounds, emoticons and random coupons.  The higher your level the more badges you need to craft to level up.

 

I fell into that trap a long time ago.

I never watched Twin Peaks when it originally aired, though I was mildly aware of it. Since then, a lot of media that I like is referenced as having a 'Twin Peaks vibe' (e.g. Alan Wake, Deadly Premonition, Life is Strange). Since there is the new show out, I figured now was the time to check out the original on Netflix.

 

I was bored to tears. I've re-watched 90's era shows, even 80's era, and enjoyed them, but this seems so dated. I guess I just missed the boat on that one. Can you get anything out of the new show if you don't know the old one?

Not bad.  Uplay versions of Wildlands are also pretty cheap (Base game $36).

 

Too bad I have now set a $40 total budget for Watch Dogs 2 + Yeti mic.  Goodwill better come through on that Yeti.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.

Fire Walk With Me, the Twin Peaks movie.

 

Having never seen it, I couldn't tell you if it's "Hey fire, come walk with me" or "Come fire-walking with me" like hip yuppies used to do in the 90s to show how open they were to new experiences.

Piece of the Pie rewards.

 

After you spend $10 or more 6 times you can get a free 2 topping medium.  But you can make it a large for $3.  It shows up as a link to click on the order details page before you submit the order.

No. Even being a fan of the old series having only seen in about 7 years ago, this new one makes no sense to me up to episode 7.

It's definitely more Lynch-Like than the original, imo

I was a big fan back in the day.  Tried to watch the Original Series on Netflix before the new season came out...Man, I dunno...pretty painful.  

 

I probably will watch the new season, but sometimes you just can't go back......

I don't think so but, remembering back to when everyone was buying Far Cry 4 and AC: Unity from India, people were reporting that they had to use a VPN each time they launched the game, not just to activate the key.  On the other hand, I didn't hear anything about people getting banned.

It's something Laura says. Movie is really dark and disturbing. It's a prequel that consists of the last week Laura's life and being tortured. It's decent if you can handle the subject material but there's nothing upbeat or happy about it at all, whereas the series had a lot of light hearted moments.

IMO, you can enjoy new Twin Peaks without seeing any of the old stuff. Just know that you'll be lost regardless of what you know from the previous stuff.

 

Overall, I wouldn't recommend the show. TV has gotten so good over the years, that, new or old, Twin Peaks doesn't hold up to current stuff.

 

I will say that there's still nothing quite like it out there, so the show still has value, but I made a list of 20 shows that aired just in the past year I'd recommend over Twin Peaks.

Nor should there be anything upbeat or happy about it considering Laura's life and what's going to happen to her (and by whom). FWWM is in direct opposition to the show in terms of tone for a reason. The entire series (including the new one) is constantly using duality to serve a dramatic purpose. There's a dark polar opposition to the light/good. Even the town in the opening half hour of FWWM is a complete opposite to the town of Twin Peaks. 

 

Last night's episode was incredible. It's ballsy as hell to propel the current storyline only about an inch and devote an entire hour to backstory told with barely any dialogue using just visuals and noise.

Man, I am only halfway through the original series as of a week ago.  I needed a break so I stopped and have been watching anime lately instead.  The new episodes are piling up on the DVR though.  I saw parts 1&2 and they were great.  We haven't had new, modern Lynch for so long.
