Steam

j/k aside, i just don't, I used to catalog using notepad/word/excel, these days, no need on my end, a lot is in steam and gog and such, and on the consoles, I rarely buy these days.

But I admire your passion and perseverance, have fun ^^;

Actually Steam is a sad step where we only virtually "own" our games instead of those cool boxes of yore, it has it upsides like space and all in one place but should steam ever close or become shite ...

I used to use backloggery. Then my steam games list got way too big and without a database backloggery makes adding multiple titles at once quite difficult. "I don't remember if I added this since I last updated backloggery...? Ooh, I already did. Guess I need to delete that game entry that I just made."

Just a little off topic... has anyone noticed our ads have become slightly less targeted to expected demographics on our site?



Just when did everyone around here get so old?

Holy shit has it been that long? Seriously MJ I'm surprised why you haven't surpassed several of the "megatubers" yet because you connect across generations, never have meltdowns, and always keep it classy.

Here's to your next 100k!

When You see a decent one click on it, then you'll get nothing but that ad. That's how I always get GameZone ads with firefox/noscript. Have for about 2 years now.

Let's see... today I got a Suburu ad, Galaxy 5S ad...and Pottery Barn ad on the site. Yep, those 3 things couldn't be FURTHER from what I would actually spend my money on!

You'd think based on my web browser history I would get a Ferrari/Koenigsegg ad, Apple iPad Mini ad...and maybe BestBuy ad.

I like his beard. If I didn't need a job I'd grow one just like it. Also he named all the games I played religiously.
