    Too poor for Dawnguard right now so I tried to get started on New Vegas and promptly fucked it up with mods. Hurray! Redownloading now to see if I can fix it.

    Is there a way to make "groups" in my friends list on steam? Right now it's just a chaotic orgy of PAbros, college friends, work friends, etc.

    Man, I'm so fucking popular.

    Oh jeeze, I just looked at all my receipts and did the math: I've spent almost $1200 on Steam, including gifts and in-game purchases..

    Technically a bit less since a few of them were multi-packs I was paid back in cash for.

    Doing the math, it's about $150 a year, with the average cost per item being about $20.

    There was a section of the game that a friend and I repeated 15 or more times because we couldn't reach a checkpoint without killing eachother. It was both hilarious and frustrating. We both ended up running around with max shields on, spamming space every 10 feet to keep it up.

    Binding of Isaac is pretty easy when you're running it not-optimized on a low-spec laptop like mine.
    the code is actually pretty solid and it doesn't really skip frames? much?

    as soon as bullets fill the screen, the slowdown gives me bullet time and it becomes much easier.

    Giant bomb did a quick look; though they didn't play coop so that was a lost opportunity.

    Magicka is one of the best co op games around. The PvP is even a fun way to just screw around. I mean there is no balance or anything even resembling a nod in balance's direction. But it's still fun blowing yourself into sausage and maybe a few of your buddies too.

    So apparently a lot of people were not aware that you could re-skin your Steam client. If you go to the settings, then Interface, theres an option to pick which skin you'd like to use. I'm currently using PixelVision

    Example of the skin on my client here:

    I love you STEAM thread!

    edit: oh wait there's a sequal and an expansion and European all-in-one versions. I don't know what to buy now.

    I've played the original and enjoyed it. I haven't heard good things about the sequel's addition of real time strategy to retake planets. Pics i've seen show you as being in control of a robot army.

    It's just starcraft lite except you choose individual parts for your robots. You can also not even install that part and not do them.

    This. Skip as much of the Womb as you can, it's just not worth it. Same with Sheol and everything else.

    Also save an emperor card til the last floor if you can.

    THEY DO NOT KNOW http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/xz4e6/after_buying_countless_games_on_steam_i_have/

    A long time ago I was at my mother's house showing her how to use her new netbook. I set her up with a gmail account, showed her how to check her email, how to search for things, and also Youtube. She loved it, because now she could look for videos of old Catholic ladies sermoning the St. Marias or whatever it is that they do.

    After a time, she looked up at me, tilted her head to the side, and asked "Are there any videos of cats on Youtube?"

    A single tear formed in my eye, and I could only smile.

    That level of innocence was the first thing I thought of when I saw that someone had written that a scrollbar was the result of them buying "countless" games.

    The Winter Sale is going to hit you like a Tsunami my friend.

    From what I understand, the "Only runs in 1280x720" thing was a rumor caused by a mistranslation, so I'm waiting until it's actually out and I can have real proof before I jump ship to getting the console version. I'd LIKE to get it on PC to give FROM more money for making Dark Souls, but I'm not sure I can put up with that resolution.

    I gave up on Binding of Isaac when I first got it. I remember something really annoying me about the shooting and movement system, which felt floaty and unpredictable. Like, I remember your projectiles had shadows underneath them which suggested height, but it didn't correspond perfectly to the 2D plane, and my mind was continually confused about it.
