    If you noticed, the dozen posts above mine were all about MMO's.
    And, Oh I don't know - Guild Wars will be sold on Steam in November?

    And ummm, your reason for an unnecessary confrontation of my post?

    well... its off topic. this thread is not about MMO's, its about sales on steam. if the game aint on sale in steam, or a similar online purchase system then why are you posting about it here?

    Guild Wars in general is sold on steam.

    Is it so wrong to post my own thoughts about MMO's, corresponding to the posts above about World of Warcraft, Rift, and anything else that was talked about?

    How I was I off topic again?

    I rest my case.

    Why so argumentative with moderators? Don't take it personally or as a shot to your ego, just find a more suitable thread :wtf:

    Technically you were all kind of off-topic and so is this post that I'm making right now. You just happened to be the person that got called out on it. It's like speeding on the high-way to go with the flow of traffic and then being the unlucky person that gets pulled over. Only in this case, you're not likely to get an infraction unless you make a huge deal out of it or something.

    Is it on sale right now? then its off topic.



    well yeah, unless it relates to this threads topic... which is games currently on sale, on steam. if one MMO is on sale and you say its not worth it, sure, thats on topic. but the posts i saw of yours didnt seem related at all.

    By posting stuff not related to current sales on steam. which is the threads title. let me emphasise "current" "sales" and "on steam" - none of which your posts seemed to be related to.

    you'd make a pretty shitty lawyer.

    A: if thats about my lawyer comment, i found it funny too.

    B: if its you finding it funny because you think you can do whatever you want in this thread, i suggest not testing that theory.

    you could care less? so that means you care, in as much as an undefined amount?


    well, since that could be anything i wont ban you, cause you could care lots. i'm not mean like that.

    Wow, that's generous :p

    So are the best Steam sales always during the Christmas holidays? When are the best sales during the year?

    Seems like it, but the best sale I have seen yet was last years spring sale. I seriously bought like 80 games for $200, including Metro 2033, Bioshock 1 +2, Just Cause 2, and a ton of other amazing games. I hope they bring back that sale this year.

    Actually the few posts above yours were about RUSE, Prince of Persia, and DRM, my screen only shows about 5 posts at a time so the 4 above you didn't show anything about MMO's, thats why quotations like I am using are your friend, shows people you are on topic and not responding to thin air.

    I am rather fond of the original Prince of Persia, loved the 1st one, 2nd one two. But never got to play the others.

    Should I bother?

    I wouldn't now. That was monday's deal at 15$ U.S. for the complete pack. It's still 33% off, but that comes to 40$ U.S.

    Todays deal is Track Mania, I love Racing games, yet I haven't ever heard of this one. But people who play it say it has a huge following. Anyone got an opinion to toss out on it?

    I have played the free version (the Nations variant) and it surely was a bunch of fun. Though because it was the free version it only had the stadium environment so the tracks became a bit boring after a while (also because the servers tend to keep the same tracks for ages, until frequent visitors get such a good lap times that it is time for a refresh in form of the upload of new community tracks). The paid version is more elaborate so it should not have that problem that much (beside different modes, also different environments which has a lot of influence on the style of the tracks), except maybe the infrequent refreshes on the servers.

    no opinion other than surprised you haven't heard of it ;)

    i never gave it much of a look, but it was definitely a very popular game for a good year or 2...

    I have Trackmania United Forever but the 'Star edition' has me a bit confused. Either way I've whiled away many hours playing it- it's very good fun. Basic. But fun.

    I didn't really use Steam back then, only bought boxed games and never seen that on a shelf. Looks interesting, but with Dirt 3 and NFS:HP I don't think I need another Racing game, though I am tempted.

    Trackmania is great, just don't expect anything realistic :D
    It's kind of like the old "Stunts" revived. Great LAN game too.

    The thing about Trackmania that I love is that "Just one more go" element it has going for it. Personally though, the free one is more than enough for my fix.
