SeasonalCAG Question of the Day:
What was your first activated/bought game on Steam? Check here: https://store.steamp...count/licenses/ (hit that "END" key if you have alot of games like most CAGs will)
I purchased this from Circuit City when they had a huge PC sale and CAGs were posting what was in each store or making huge list of all available games and even buying games for other CAGs and shipping it to them at cost. Those were the days if that happened today people would charge double in the cesspool (I'm looking at you Forza) or flipping or selling on Ebay for profit.
May 17th, 2005 - purchased + activated HL2 Collector's Ed from GameStop @ retail on sale.
It was $30, when I bought it.
Yup, w/ the big box w/ the HL2 T-Shirt inside and extra HL Source.
BG+E was the FIRST game that I bought directly through Steam itself. All others before it, bought from retail + activated the key up onto Steam.
My first few Steam purchases/activations look like THIS:
And I remember when CC (Circuit City) had all kinds of sales; used to buy regularly from there. Their clearance stuff was killer. I would always come away w/ some good deals and stuff from there.
When they were going out of business, I picked-up TONS of games @ killer prices right when they were closing. I was getting all kinds of new games for like $5, $1, $2.50, and whatnot - INSANE.
Add me to the list of Sin buyers disappointed they never finished it. I think I was working at a gamestop at the time and I probably didn't actually pay for it.
May 12, 2006 SiN Episodes Emergence
I liked SiN Episode 1 - it was good, but not great. Still wishing that damn Episodic series got finished.
Ubisoft apparently revamped their store. No good deals, even with:
Ewwwwwwwwww @ such weak deals.
Prey also came from that flea market... and I bought the last Orange Box at the Best Buy in El Centro, CA, right after I'd finished my thanksgiving shift at the local Toys'R'US that I worked at at the time.
Oooh, Prey was awesome - underrated FPS. I actually have the Prey CE in the tin case w/ the small figurine, mini-artbook, and all - it was $20 at CC's online store; had to get it - got it shipped here and all. I was quite happy once they allowed that game's retail box to be activated onto Steam.
I still wish Human Head's version of Prey 2 got finished; that version of the game looked awesome.
