While to me it's kind of whatever do you what you want...I don't get the hostility toward the PC thread either. There are a lot more storefronts out there than just Steam to buy from, and Neuro does an excellent job gathering them all in the op, and members will post what he misses throughout the day. Really it's just convenient.

 

Like if I need to go grocery shopping I prefer to buy all my things from one store as opposed to buying my bread from wal mart, driving to giant to get eggs, and the corner store to get milk, but whatever.

But what if you could flip the eggs over at Walmart, thereby coming out ahead on the bread?

Anyhow, maybe we could post deals in separate threads for popular games that are at or near their historical lows. Of course, this deal is terrible because Dirt 3 has been bundled 3 times by Humble Bundle and has also been around 5 bucks at several stores.

As long as your intent is to post deals, then it's perfectly acceptable to create tons of threads!

 

 

I do not need to provide an explanation. It was clear to me and everyone that reported him that his intentions were not to post deals.

I love how there are multiple GS/BB/etc threads, but don't anyone dare post anything PC related outside of 1 Holy thread.

Personally I don't care to get Dirt 3, wouldn't have even posted in here if it wasn't for the self appointed hall monitors (as someone else pointed out) And no I don't go into the steam thread either... (dammit, there it is again) I have a wishlist for Steam, I get notifications when they go on sale, I tend to take my first break at work about 30 minutes after Steam updates for the day, takes me 30 seconds to see if anything of any value is on sale. Unfortunately, PSN/XBL do *NOT* have a simple way of checking sales and price history. Thats where CAG comes in.

Boy, it's easy to play ignorant.

 

Yeah, I've never heard of Humble Bundle, Indie Gala, Indie Royale, Bundle Stars, Groupees, Nuuvem, GamersGate, Get Games, or any of the dozen other websites that sell Steam games for cheaper than the Steam store, either. And I DEFINITELY don't use ITAD.

 

There's absolutely NO simple way of checking current XBL deals, either

 

One person was just silenced and the other was banned for posting threads outside of the Steam deals. You console people sure are lucky.

Is it an I-patch?

Look, Cheapy occasionally necros the GMG thread even though we've moved GMG talk to the megathread, so clearly we were wrong for merging all digital PC storefront deals into one thread. Cheapy wanted it this way.

Of course, this begs the question of what htz is doing going against the will of his lord and master by deleting all those separate deal threads. Is rebellion fomenting in the ranks of the mods? The people have a right to know!

I... sure. Why not?

really i shouldn't have used eggs in this example at all. they're kind of like the double fine of groceries. i already have 4 cartons of eggs in my fridge and i barely eat them but then when you're buying a bundle of groceries it's like "dammit eggs are in here again"

"you console guys" LMFAO I just picked up a console on black friday after 4+ years of strict PC gaming only. I have almost 400 PC games... and about 35 console games. (not counting the PS+ stuff I got since joining in November)
 
Noticed since November though, console gamers are a Hell of a lot less Elitist.

Is that why you capitalize words that require no capitalization? Because you're totally down to earth?

Okay, but seriously, as somebody who regularly buys console and PC games, I just want to point out that I think the point of all this talk by the Steam thread regulars has been to point out that hey, you guys who don't check in with that thread occasionally are getting ripped off with "deals" like this. In their own peculiar way, they're actually looking out for you.

Granted, they're being asses about it, but the non-Steam-thread-regs have been kind of ass-ish about the whole thing, too. Which is really to be expected, given that this is CheapAssGamer.

Since you are clearly more intelligent, can you point out what part of this you are referencing?

 

@Souff - the point of all this talk now is that people were silenced for this and it's a little foolish. It's a point made. Also, I'm not sure the console peasants know what "fomenting" means, so you might want to replace that with something with less syllables. ;)

 

And yes, there were far better deals posted. It's stupid that this random 20% off Steam store "deal" that you would get an e-mail about like backlash said is somehow still here.

don't mind blade, most people in the pc thread i don't think are seriously elitist. in fact most of us (myself included) own a console (i actually have a wii u, ps3, and 360). i think a lot of the elitist posting is pretty tongue in cheek.

 

still think just following one thread is a lot easier. i like easy it's why i've had peanut butter and fluff everyday for breakfast for the past month

 

wutevar tho im just one man

A lot of the ass-ishness about the whole thing, my opinion, came from people using the thread as a platform to bash the Steam thread. Being it's a little community of sorts, that was never going to go over well and well it turned into a "who can be the biggest ass," thread

The capitalization, first off "Elitist" would be the only questionable one. 

November, months are capitalized.

Hell. It's autocorrect doing that because it would generally switch it to "he'll" when you type Hell, it's also a place so it's perfectly fine to capitalize.

 

http://en.wikipedia..../Capitalization

 

20% off isn't that great of a deal I agree. But you miss the point. ANYONE who purchased Dirt 3 prior to this update gets the new non-GFWL version on Steam. (That would mean people who bought a physical disk version) 

Codemasters made the announcement, the OP posted it hours before the Steam thread had any mention of any Steam "sale" 

 

It's the regular PC Steam thread posters that kept fanning the flames. Read the posts by 5 or so posters that kept at it, read the ToS I linked.. it doesn't take very long to see why those two were dealt with. 

 

@blade Go read the ToS again. The answer is in the Community Rules section. (Yes capitalized Souffrir, look at the ToS)

Sometimes it's best to point people in the right direction and see if they can learn things on their own, holding their hand does not teach them. Other times people refuse to learn, and they get dealt with by moderators.

 

This thread not locked? yeah I don't see why it isn't either. I agree that it should have been locked down when the others were dealt with. Leaving it open *will* cause this to continue for longer than it should have.

Oh, you're right, you're completely innocent in all this, as are all the people who jumped down motoki's throat for suggesting that they might find a better place for discussing this sort of thing elsewhere.

The steam thread did have the Dirt upgrade deal posted a day before (post 9273) and Neuro updated the OP with that info and the small discount. For anyone interested the OP is updated every day, even more if necessary and that's all you have to check if you don't want to dig through posts.

 

However, like I said before, I think it would be fine if we posted deals on well-known games (subjective, I know) if they're at or better than their historical lows. Its just that we get complaints if we stray out of the PC thread.

I was wondering how a thread about a 4 year old game costing over $20 got 5 pages long..................................

Oh, that's easy. You accidentally selected "10 posts per page" in the "Edit My Profile" dialogue. Just change it back to whatever you had before and it'll be much shorter.

Honestly, I don't even know why they have that option.
