    Badges don't actually do anything right now, it's just an intangible status symbol.

    So, how important is it to you? Ask yourself that and answer honestly.

    I was playing Serious Sam 3 with a friend

    We blew up the sphinx

    We blew up the Sphinx

    And the fight we had when we came out of it, oh my God, I have no idea how one person would be able to handle this

    This may be the greatest game ever made

    Well I mean Badges net you XP, and Levels do have slight benefits. So there is that.

    Also who knows what they might do with Badges. Could be interesting.

    What do XP and levels do, other than fill bars and look nice?

    EDIT: An honest question, I don't know anything about these badges, et al.

    Levels allow you to customize your profile by adding said badges, or a wallpaper background, and different showcases for you games/screenshots/acheivements/etc.

    Also, the higher level the more booster packs you get which gives you more cards which make more badges which give you more levels which...

    Hmm... I may be in more trouble than I thought...

    For every ten levels you get to have another showcase on your profile. Each level increases your friends list limit by 5. Crafting badges gives profil backgrounds.

    Fun night of Co-Op Serious Sam 3 with @DasUberEdward and @MosBen.

    Someday we will try to finagle a 16 man Co-Op.

    The world cannot sustain that much seriousness.

    Also, the friend list capacity increases by five for each level.

    Been replaying Torchlight 2 as a Blast Cannon Engi. Effectively having a rocket launcher has been a blast (pun fully intended).

    Also you have to have a certain level to do certain community acctivities, like getting cards for voting.

    I need a Bioshock Infinite card. I have Torchlight 2, Chivalry, and Tomb Raider extras. Can anyone help me out?

    I've purchased seriously way too much, but I'm still eyeing Prison Architect and Far Cry 3. I've got to resist!

    The card thing makes a lot of sense beyond the whole money factor. Which is a ginormous factor. But look at what else the cards are doing. They've gotten people onto the Marketplace that probably were barely aware of its existence before the card beta. It has people using the trading system left and right, chatting, setting up groups (PA Card Sharks right here from these forums), adding friends and the people who participate the most are getting some pretty solid rewards. Money from the marketplace to put towards games, additional friend slots (you may scoff but hang out around here for a few years and get involved on Steam, and see how fast it fills up), showcases for your favorite games and other cosmetic things to spiff up your profile and add a little life to chat (emotes).

    It's pretty fucking brilliant.

    Ok, I really need some trading partners for cards. I have cards for

    UT2004
    Dota*
    TF2
    HL2
    L4D2
    Portal2
    Gary's Mod
    Shogun II
    Sleeping Dogs
    Alan Wake
    Walking Dead*
    Mark of Ninja
    Torchlight 2
    Magika*
    and soon to be Witcher 2.

    who thinks they can trade with me? Asterisks are by the sets I have priority on wanting to complete.

    See, no good deed goes unpunished! I answer @Nimble Cat's post above looking for a Bioshock Infinite card, hand off a card with a "cheers" and wander away thinking that was that.

    Oh no. No, no, no. Can't ever just be that simple.

    The classy fellow lobs a gift at me.
    ironclad.jpg

    ... which I wishlisted just a bit ago because the other Ironclads that @Pierceneck gifted me were turning out to be quite entirely up my alley (that alley being a place for people with a fascination for 19th-century ships).

    So, to recap: I give him a card that's probably worth like 20 cents. In response, he gives me a game.

    WHAT MADNESS IS THIS?

    Thank you, sir. :)

    I am planing on not worring about any other badges until after dale. I just wanted my summer one as I don't know how limited it is.

    I'm still going to vote like crazy though.

    Wait: there is a new worms, and it has cards? Me and my fiance played which ever one I had a lot..

    Edit:

    No, that isn't latest. I have two back I guess. Well does the game really change?

    I only crafted lvl 1 summer badge and it got me to level 10 already. Not a lot of incentive to get to lvl 5 badge already for me.
    All the other cards turned into free games :D love these cards.

    Anyone else who got Towns... I'm doing the 2nd tutorial, and it tells me to "shift click a 5x5 area to create a wall, and fill it in with a carpentry zone." But no matter what I try, no matter which step I hold shift in, the workers fill in the entire 5x5 area with log walls and I can't put anything there.

    There was a steam sig here. It's gone now.

    This is actually bigger than I would've thought.

    I probably wouldn't have installed Mount & Blade for months if it weren't for badges, and my own stupid pride refuses to let me just idle a game so I actually sat down and played it for a couple of hours. Granted, I went back to Mark of the Ninja soon after, but I enjoyed what I played and will probably go back to it sooner than I will a few other games.

    Wow, Monaco is really awesome. The trailers for the game sucked and made the game look like a confusing mess, but its actually a ton of fun. Shame it didn't sell very well (well, the Xbox version didn't, dunno about PC).

    Smart move by SE to put FF7 on sale for a few short hours, I think it took 10 minutes to reach the number one selling game on Steam lol
