#14516957 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

quote name="Romeo" post="14516953" timestamp="1674422332"] Honestly the easiest solution is to find an older machine running that OS for the game or putting together a build out of old parts from that era. There is the option to try and run the game with the Windows compatibility mode, but that is hit or miss. Another option is to run an emulated version of the OS, and using an iso file of the game mounted on a virtual clone drive. I would suggest looking for specific guides on each game. None of the current developers offer any support( save Valve) or a way to convert the game to a digital copy as far as I know. GOG has a larger library of games that have an updated installer to that helps with running the game on a newer OS.

You’re playing games on a desktop? There’s your problem, toss that old thing down the nearest laundry chute and switch to a real man’s gaming machine like the ThinkPad 701C.

Yeah but then you run the risk of severe cockburn if you aren't too careful

I disagree. You don't pay their salary. They work for a huge corporation and it's not the customer's job to be responsible for the worker's salary. Tipping culture in the U.S. is getting more out of control where customers are somehow being guilted into being responsible for paying employees wages so that they bosses and CEOs can afford another mansion. Even takeout restaurants now ask if you want tips which is ridiculous. You bagged up my food and handed it to me, you don't get a tip for that. That's not serving me at a restaurant, sorry. Are we going to tip the mailman next? McDonalds?

I agree with not tipping at a fast food restaurant, but the question asked was in regards to tipping a driver that is delivering an item to you.  Do you not tip a pizza delivery driver?

GameStop is for serious trading. If you want to have fun trading, I would suggest using the stock market

Anyone have a brickseek link?

Here is a link to the Reddit thread which has multiple set links to Brickseek. Though at this point most of the clearance will be gone. https://www.reddit.c...rance_2540_off/

Anyone know a free shipping code for GameStop? I’m trying to use my $5 off item coupon online but if I pay for shipping it kinda defeats the purpose. Damn GameStop

Try to see if you can pick the item up at a store, otherwise you are out of luck unless you spend more than 35 dollars. The code for free shipping was SAVER, but it has not worked in quite some time

Hmmm...apparently there's a note on my account that I exceeded the monthly trade limit? Is that the trade ban? Don't think I went over the 4 same game limit. How long does this last?

Did you trade in more than 2k in credit or 500 in cash in the past 30 rolling days? The ban will probably last for 90 days if so.

Sounds like the same lot that spend their time trying to flip games.

I take offense to that, flipping back for trade credit has yielded a substantial growth in shit I will never play.

I ordered 7 3DS games from the weird one day sale on select 3DS games and the buy 5 to get 50% off so the games came out to about $6 each in that order even after shipping.
In that batch I had 2 games that my system wouldn't read at all. I spent about 20-30 minutes extensively cleaning the contacts and finally got them both to work.
One had contacts that just looked really dirty and possibly oxidized. The other it looked like some kid used a pen to draw on the contacts. Some of them were so covered in ink they looked black and I thought they were missing. I was briefly afraid someone popped the cases and swapped the games to trade in for a higher value. Seriously, who covers the cartridge connectors with ink??

I’m guessing children with markers.

Is there a list of closing locations? I know in the pre-COVID closures there was a guy who posted them somewhere. I'd love to find out which ones are closing without having to drive around checking every store in the city.

Thanks for the reminder.. do you know if the GameStop gift card diminishes in value in any way over time?

Not to my knowledge, so you will be fine for awhile. It is a stagnant currency, so it will lose value over time with inflation, but that will take several years or decades to notice.

If I specifically ordered the steelbook edition of P5 Royal as part of the B1G1, there's not much I can do to ensure I receive it, right?

Nope, you don’t have any say. Ordered three, one came complete the other two came in a generic case.
