too bad the PS4 version of Dark Souls 2 will have everything included on it. Was tempted to buy it for PC but Steam doesn't think us Guatemalans deserve Dark Souls for some reason.

It's mainly credit card processing that's a pain for them in other countries, fraud/chargebacks and the like.

If and when Steam starts taking bitcoin, I'm sure it will also open up its store at one price worldwide, since chargebacks/fraud are impossible with bitcoin.

Nope, I can buy games fine on Steam. Dark Souls doesn't even appear on my store. If I get a link pointing directly to it, it says the page doesn't exist. They really don't want us to play the game.

edit: apparently that only applies to the first Dark Souls, Dark Souls II is there. Still the PS4 version looks more appealing.

That's it? A sale? No game or voting for the next set of deals?

How boring.

This is terrible and true at the same time.

Shopping as entertainment. How far we have fallen.

Steam is all about the wishlist for me nowadays. Too much clutter otherwise, and I own much of what I want to, anyways.

All about the wishlist and the discounts on those items.

MGSV launched today on Steam with an opening price of 33% off. Don't think I've seen them do a day 1 sale like that before.

Plenty of solid titles in the $5 and under category. Almost a shame I own most of them already.

Ah yes, the yearly "waste money on cheap games you'll never play because you'd rather play them on console or wait for a port" sale. I always fall for some game I'll never play. That's why I have 100 unplayed Steam games in my collection. With the exception of Torchlight II, Wasteland 2, and the new Divinity and MMX, I have zero interest in PC gaming. And I only play those on PC because I can't get them on console. Ahh the days where I used to spent all day on my PC playing Ultima and Civilization, Quake and Unreal Tournament... a distant charming memory. I should just buy a Mac next.

I play literally ever day, when I can help it. I actually keep it running all the time and just tab into and out of it so I can play at least 30 minutes a day with no real wasted time.

The only drawback to the game, for some people, was song selection, but the DLC has reached a point where they have most things a person playing a game called ROCKsmith would want. They do not have a few big metal bands, due to contract issues, however.

Yeah, it's a quality product. I just went back to saxophone from guitar though, so I don't think I want to go back to guitar so soon, but it's extremely tempting.
