I throw my money at you Valve!!! I throw it all at you!!!

:roll: :toast:


Spent $185 or so two summers ago, I generally skip the winter sales, and spent only about $24 last summer since I already have such a huge backlog, but I am hoping to spend about $100 or so this summer, as long as it is some really really nice deals.

lol... I probably won't even break spending $50 if I try, I already have so many games on backlog, but if I seem some seriously killer deals I probably will do it anyway... silly Steam :banghead:

Cool. Maybe i'll find a deal, though i bought half of Steam already and haven't played even 1/8th of it. I guess i'm more in anticipation for the Killing Floor Summer Event than anything else...

I think I have OCD or something. Every time a steam sale is on, I can't help but to buy games even though I will probably never play 1/2 of them as I have so many still to play from the last sales.

Yeah, buying on these deals is almost addictive. And they say we steal everything on PC. Right... what better is than us, buying stuff and never playing it :D

Rarely I find games there I actually want, and rarely I find them at prices I want to pay.

BTW, shouldn't this be in the Hot Deals forum?

I just checked my wishlist... It's empty. I guess I have everything, though I picked up Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition the other day and am about to install it now.

Actually got Baldurs Gate EE right now and realised another thing I never liked with Steam: You can only download one game at a time. Unless there's a setting you can change somewhere. Blergh.

I have downloaded 20 games at once before, lol. I have fiber optic internet though so it wasn't much of an issue.

Also, erocker, dude I almost bought that yesterday myself, lmao well done good sir well done. :respect:

only games i want that arent out yet are BF4 and COD ghosts
Dude, don't buy CoD Ghosts, black ops 2 was the last great CoD.

Wait for Titan Fall, made by West and Zampella, the two guys Activision screwed over, the original makers of CoD4 and MW2.

Titan Fall comes out Spring 2014, and is going to rock the socks off CoD Ghosts. Black Ops 2 was and is my last CoD, Titan Fall gets all my money from now on, looks to be epic and made by those two guys that got screwed over by Activision. :rockout:

Yep I sold a graphics card to fund steam summer sales lol. I only have like 35 games I haven't even started and I thought I was doing pretty bad lolz. There aren't any games I really really want right now. Last couple games I wanted were Metro LL and AC3 and already got those.

Try enabling steam beta, left click on steam in left hand corner then settings, opt in to steam beta, it will restart you, then check settings and there should be on option somewhere to not limit amount of downloads at once, sometimes just the reinstall of steam using steam beta opt in fixes whatever random issue I run into with steam... it needs a refresher once in awhile :roll:

I get that sometimes too, not all the time though. You might want to try finding a different server in "settings".

Was this all a filthy lie? Everywhere else has summer sales on, GOG, GreenmanGaming etc
