‘Waits impaitently for Skyrim to go cheap again…’

Although X-Com was a good buy. Having a lotta fun playing it atm!

 

Heads up if your interested in Fallout: New Vegas.

Make sure you buy the “Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition” and get all the DLC as well for a grand total of $4.99

 

nit001,

yea i bought the ultimate packs just for the dlc … well that and to have the fall outs on steam

 

So, what does Valve pay you guys for these ads for Steam you’re running every day?

Everyday?

 

caitsith01,

Dude, not everything is a god damn conspiracy.

probably about the same as Origin pay you to spew acid about Steam.

 

ralphwiggum: Everyday?

Fair enough, this is only the third article about the Steam sale.

 

kinkykel: probably about the same as Origin pay you to spew acid about Steam.

Yeah… no.

Just not sure why most of the gaming media thinks that a sale that 99% of PC gamers already know about deserves to be promoted for free as “news”.

Dude, not everything is deadly serious.

Well you started pulling shit out of the air, so I thought I’d go hog wild aswell.

Because the Flash Sales rotate on a regular basis, and for chaps like me at work, I haven’t installed steam on my work machine, so If I want to buy anything I can quickly jump on the webpage and get it. So it’s nice to get updates.

????

A lot of people don’t actually compulsively check Steam every day for the new sales. In fact as I write this 421 unique people have read this article. They probably appreciated the heads up, even if you didn’t?

If you don’t like these news posts then that’s fine, but you don’t need to put quotation marks around “news” like we’re trying to pass this off as world-changing. People like to read about cheap games. End of story.

Pretty much every site is doing this kind of thing.

Pretty much this. I haven’t loaded up Steam for a while, so if I hadn’t been reading GON I wouldn’t have known about the summer sale.

 

Why of all weeks am I broke this week? Ah well, will grab Fallout NV at the next sale… kind of got stuck on it on Xbox and it’s really really ugly on there, PC version would be sexy.

 

Jeebus, this place needs a “half kidding” font.

I do think that Steam, like Apple, gets a massive free ride from the media. This happens to be the gaming site I tend to comment on, so I commented here. Personally I reckon maybe one story telling people the sale is on would strike the right balance, but there you go. That’s just my opinion, no-one is required to share it.

For clarity, I am not actually stupid enough to think that GON is receiving kickbacks from Valve as part of a vast government conspiracy involving the saucer people and the reverse vampires.

 

shhhhh.. say NOTHING of the reverse vampires……

Just wanted to say thank you, you are right I like many others don’t live on steam, I literally use it only for purchasing games. If it wasn’t for these articles I would be completely oblivious to the massive steam sales. Cheers.

 

I don’t use Steam at all. So I’m interested to know what that market is doing.

P.S. caitsith01 is a Sith Lord named Kate.
