    Cause A; I don't own most of those games, and B; fuckin' SMB has an impossible one.

    Which SMB achievement are you guys talking about? The one to just beat an XMAS level is super easy if you cheat by jumping over the columns in the Sweater level. It took me less than 40 seconds to get it, and I don't really like platformers and have never played SMB before (just got it in the latest Humble Bundle).

    I think there's another achievement for beating all of the Xmas levels though, and, well, fuck that one.

    Same here. I never ever remember to set myself as away, which is probably even more confusing for people since as a waiter I'm often working nights.

    Not just beating them all, but beating them all in one sitting. Never leaving the Xmas world.

    I would be stuck there for DAYS.

    Yeah. I've got a Jedi knight (lvl 7, I think) on Shadowlands named Mi'nor and a Sith warrior on Helm of Garrusushagsuh named BieberFett (Korriban's teen Sith-pop sensation).

    I got screwed out of the early access by Gamestop, so I won't be on until Tuesday.

    At least I have Tuesday off so I'll have all day with it.

    Aw, that sucks. Definitely hop on Shadowlands with us when you get on. I haven't managed to hook up with anyone from the PA guild yet because I'm still in the starter area. It's a lot of fun so far, though. Considering I actively dislike MMOs, I'm surprised how addicted I'm getting to this game.

    Steam sale means somewhere in the order of nine to fifteen daily deals though, instead of one.

    Holy shit I am back in the game guys and gals. Let the sale commence! :D
    My sister is the bestest. Asked her to help me out by transferring so money over to my account to cover the charges. She gave me four times as much as I asked and refuses to take it back <3

    I still have a nasty cough and a banging headache but dammit, I feel good. Bring on the sale!
    Saying that , if you send me a gift and I don't respond for a while, or I don't post for a few days its probably to do with what happened last year around this time (for which I can't thank you guys enough for all the support and messages). I think we're planning on a few days away so I may be unable to respond through steam but through the forums shouldn't be a problem.

    Ah, Steam Sale season.

    I remember last year. I never did tally my final cost, but I do know that the number of games I owned quadrupled. I spent waaaaaay too much...

    You're automatically set as away if you're not doing anything on your computer for 5 minutes. Snooze is the same, but for about two hours.

    I refuse to ever tally the amount I spent last year between Thanksgiving and Christmas

    All I know is that if I did it would be some kind of absurd number

    Terrified and excited! Terrified because I only have a tiny smidgeon of money to spend, excited because of the "ooh, what do I buy? WHAT DO I BUY?!" (In Nicolas Cage "how did it burn?!" Wicker Man voice)

    Some serious tactical spending going to be involved!

    The only things I really want are Space Marine and Skyrim. Have a bit too much of a backlog at the moment.

    Dead Island for cheaper would be nice, and maybe some nice indie games like the Gundemonium Collection. And Tau Commander on the cheap for last stand.

    I doubt Dead Island will be any cheaper than it is right this second, to be honest.

    They said the same thing about Super Meat Boy when it was released and was 33% off for preorder, then it was 75% off the first day of the X-mas sale. People weren't all that happy about that.

    Yeah, people were pretty salty about that move

    Thinking back, actually, Anon the Felon gifted me SMB

    But then I had already put something like ten hours into it by the time the Christmas sale rolled around so even had I bought it I doubt I'd be too sussed over it

    EDIT: This also reminds me, I'd kill for a tag under the Game Info that tells you who gifted you the game if it was gifted to you. That sort of feature would make me super happy.

    Likewise. I think I've kept good track of people, but would be great to check.

    Mainly after older games that'll likely never get a daily deal (like Spellforce) this sale so first day for me lets me know generally what I'll have to spend to get a few of the more obscure titles by the end of the sale.

    Corpekata on
  • AsheAshe Registered User regular
    SPAZ is one of my prime targets during the sale too. Other than that, not sure! Mostly it'll be bargain-hunting, or getting excited at any surprisingly low prices.

    For those after Psychonauts Tim Schaefer recently tweeted to expect it to be really cheap during the sale.

  • heenatoheenato Registered User regular
    It'll probably one of the dailies, since it's got an achievement.

    What time does the sale go up, is it the same as when the daily deal changes or does it go up at midnight eastern time or something crazy like that?

    Just got back from watching the Bills lose (again) to find Dead Island sitting my in my notification box from @starmanbrand! Incredibly generous of you sir, and thank you! DI would have been (I'm assuming) one of the more expensive titles I had planned to get during the sale, but this classy gift goes a long way in clearing some much needed space in the budget that I can shift to gifting.

    I'm going to be away for a lot of Christmas, so the last day where I snap up everything I'm interested in is basically all I have :(
