« first day (360 days earlier)      last day (3050 days later) » 

5:00 PM
No new tickets.
 
So I noticed.
I have two I could go back and get, but... do I really feel like it?
 
Also, um, no new deals?
 
user30
Nah, 'best of' deals
 
@ThomasMcDonald Which is pretty standard for Steam sales.
 
user30
@Powerlord I didn't say it wasn't.
 
5:01 PM
Well, then no new deals.
And no new purchases.
 
Oh man
I can relax!
No new achievements for today, so I officially have them all
 
user30
jeeez
 
I don't really feel like doing the Portal 2 one, because I think it'll take too long.
 
its actually not too bad
 
@Powerlord It's an easy one.
 
5:03 PM
@Powerlord Me and @badp took like 10 minutes or something.
 
Just need some prep.
 
Keeping in mind that I haven't touched Portal 2 multiplayer.
At all. Ever.
 
Okay, doing that chamber for the first time takes at mostest half hour
Getting there is a few more hours
you can definitely go through it in a single night
 
@badp I remember the first time we tried it.
 
@ArdaXi Yeah. That took a while.
 
5:04 PM
@badp And this is what I meant by taking too long.
 
I would help but I have my sons bday party today
 
The last ticket I can get would be the facebook one.
 
@Powerlord You'd have to do it with someone who's already done them all.
 
thats why Im glad there were no new ones.
 
I status'd to 'away' in Galcon fusion, and went out to do some mowing.
Came back an hour later, and the same game is still going.
Holy moses.
 
5:05 PM
the same game?
 
Would a question about why I can't see my mouse cursor when playing some fullscreen games be on topic on the site?
@Loktar Yeah.
 
wow.. that must be how the pros play
 
@Loktar They aren't pros.
 
im usually out in under 45 seconds lol
 
All in all I spent €25
 
5:06 PM
A couple of them are really good... but they've apparently been playing the whole time
 
I dont even know how much I spent :?
 
Oh, looks like it's just about over
 
@badp I have you beat there. I spent $0.
 
maybe $200 or so
I gifted some games to people
 
5:07 PM
@Powerlord I didn't buy games for tickets, however.
 
Did I mention that I love @FallenAngelEyes?
 
At least there's that :P
Also I'd say TF2 keys do count as they are part of this sale too...
 
@GnomeSlice Yes.
 
@ArdaXi Oh. Okay then.
 
@Powerlord Same, also I'll help you get the portal 2 achievment if you like
 
5:08 PM
Oop, game is done finally!
 
user30
I uncrated the spy shirt yesterday
 
This game has a great soundtrack.
 
I still never have let a key touch my backpack
besides I don't think I'd ever use it
 
@badp Sell it.
 
well okay I did withhold my #20 crate from Powerlord because I might be okay with a soldier strange weapon
 
5:12 PM
Anyone want 123 Kick It, Audiosurf, CS:S, Defense Grid, Left 4 Dead 2 or a guest pass for MNC to do some last minute ticket grinding?
 
blahblahblah I dunno what you're saying.
 
...although... strange pain train... gah.
 
@ArdaXi ME
AUDIOSURF.
@ArdaXi Why would you just give those away?
 
I don't have you on Steam.
 
@GnomeSlice Karma, perhaps.
 
5:13 PM
@GnomeSlice I have spare copies, and selling them is a hassle.
 
@ArdaXi One sec. I'll try to find me.
 
The only game that pertains my interest there is 123 Kick It and I wouldn't get it for the ticket.
 
@GnomeSlice Accept my friend request.
@badp It's not a game.
 
@ArdaXi I hope you didn't request to 'GnomeSlice'
 
@GnomeSlice steamcommunity.com/groups/stackexchange - It'd be easier if you joined this group.
 
5:14 PM
It's not me.
 
@GnomeSlice It's Galcon Fusion.
So that does seem like you.
 
Yeah, so that is GnomeSlice.
 
I'm gnomeslice64 though
????
Who is Jackalope ?
 
Username isn't the same as Steam Community name.
 
5:15 PM
Oh
 
So if you would kindly accept my request...
Ah, you did. Excellent.
 
Mhm.
 
@GnomeSlice is that you?
 
@badp Yerp.
I need a new avatar.
 
Oh, you're already in the group.
 
5:16 PM
I used Steam once before. When I created it. To download Portal while it was free.
 
Look at that. Literally everyone on my friends list has Audiosurf save for 3 people.
 
@ArdaXi Am I one of them?
 
And @badp, you wanted Kick It?
 
5:17 PM
Actually does anyone want to get the portal 2 achievment?
 
This comp doesn't actually have steam on it, but my desktop does.
 
I already have it.
 
@ArdaXi I'll have one of them
 
Do audio surf and defense grid need a fast PC to play on?
 
Legitimately
@GnomeSlice I don't think so.
@RonanForman Which?
 
5:18 PM
@ArdaXi Oh good. My desktop isn't very good.
 
@ArdaXi Yes but I don't
 
I can play Galcon fusion on my laptop, because getting it via steam still means I can use my login to enable any fusion demo
 
@ArdaXi How good is defence grid?
 
@RonanForman If you're into tower defence it's good.
 
@ArdaXi Oh man.
!!!
 
5:19 PM
@ArdaXi There's different types
 
I wish I gamed on the PC more.
 
@RonanForman Well, it has a demo.
 
I'm horrendous at tower defense games, but I love them. :P
 
I should start looking at friend's wishlists.
I love the way Steam improved usage of such obscure features.
Like recommendations, wishlists etc.
 
Hrm, Rush is still 75% off
 
5:21 PM
Rubik's Rush?
From Twotribes?
Get it. It's excellent.
Well, the Wiiware edition is, at least.
Haven't played the PC one.
 
@RonanForman Right.
 
user30
ignore the marker, I haven't got rid if it yet :P
 
@ArdaXi Yes, why not. Well, a reason not to is that I don't really need to make the list of people I owe something larger.
 
5:23 PM
damn busy servers!
 
@ThomasMcDonald Whoa, what is that?
 
@GnomeSlice Yes, that one.
 
Is that realtime?
 
@badp It's a gift. I just want to make the list of games I still need to give away smaller.
 
@badp If it's the same as the Wiiware game, it's excellent.
 
user30
5:23 PM
@GnomeSlice That's a render of (one half of) our server
 
Besides, Kick It is worth literally nothing.
 
@ThomasMcDonald nice
 
user30
No, but I'm going to get it running incrementally (probably every hour or so), once I nag @TimStone to get some dependencies on.
 
@GnomeSlice It depends on how hard the levels get tbh. If I can't get to the end without using hints on every single level... meh.
 
@Arda if no one else wants it, I'd play Defence grid. =]
 
5:24 PM
 
@badp =[
 
user30
I think everyone else has it
 
@GnomeSlice But now @RonanForman wants it too... Hrm. hands both torches and pitchforks Fight to the death!
 
Jeez, I need to change the localization for gift receiving
 
My father and I played Toki Tori and Rush puzzle galaxy all the way through.
@ArdaXi Oh no, you've already gifted me one. =]
Wow, I'm really pathetic.
 
5:25 PM
@ArdaXi I'm not that bothered
 
Oh. Okay. The English string is bad to start with
 
I buggered a $3.40 game off of @FallenAngelEyes too.
 
Any takers?
 
@ArdaXi Isn't it free?
 
@GnomeSlice Toki Tori is also 75% off
@GnomeSlice Yes, but that version is the premium one.
 
5:26 PM
@GnomeSlice That's the joke.
 
@badp I've got it for the Wii.
 
user30
@ArdaXi If it qualifies as a premium account
 
Also, I don't have any steam credit.
 
Basically, I can give someone a hat.
@ThomasMcDonald It does.
 
user30
I'll take it for the armory site I'm setting up ;)
 
5:26 PM
You need more than one account?
:S
I've never had any steam credit
I don't even know how Steam works
 
user30
Well, it needs a separate account to store the weapons on to avoid mixing armory-stuff from personal items.
 
@GnomeSlice That's the point; with that gift you wouldn't need to place funds in your wallet to become a 'premium' player
 
@ThomasMcDonald Tell me what account to give it to.
 
@badp I also wouldn't be able to play it from here.
I'm sure my desktop isn't good enough, and my internet surely isn't.
 
I also have two copies of Portal.
 
5:27 PM
Also, I'm bad at it.
I only got steam so I could downoad portal while it was free
And my damn desktop wouldn't run it.
 
user30
Righto, I'll sort it out in 20
 
Okay, now I have 21/23 redeemable tickets
 
@ThomasMcDonald I'm still not sure what you mean by armory
 
@Ronan > So... are we fighting to the death or what.
 
@badp I've got 8.
 
5:29 PM
@GnomeSlice Chose your game/weapons!
 
Wait. Huh?
 
I redeemed all but 1 ticket, on stuff for games I may get later for the last few.
 
At any rate @sjohnston's house on that map is preeeeetty sweet.
 
@RonanForman errrr
 
Where did a giftable copy of Condition Zero come from?
 
5:29 PM
@ArdaXi Magic.
@RonanForman TRIANGLES.
 
@ArdaXi You didn't have Condition Zero before?
 
@Powerlord I mean, that's the only one I didn't have prior to the Potato dealio.
 
@GnomeSlice What is this I don't even...
 
@RonanForman SPHERES
 
btw @GnomeSlice since you're active on wiiware, have you tried the Bit Trip games?
 
5:30 PM
@ArdaXi Same here... and hey, I also have a giftable copy of it.
 
@Powerlord Interesting.
 
I'm annoyed that Gaijin is focusing on releasing Bit Trip Complete for Wii rather than getting more of their games on Steam :/
 
@badp I haven't actually done anything with wiiware in a long time
 
Maybe they gave everyone both a copy for themselves and a giftable one?
 
5:31 PM
I swear there and exorcism going on next door...
 
Have they fought to the death yet?
 
I think so.
 
I don't think so.
 
I don't feel dead.
I must have won.
 
I can't offer to gift Defense Grid, as it's one of the ones I don't have an extra of.
 
5:32 PM
Triangles ftw.
 
By the way, I gave you guys weapons.
 
Pitchforks and torches.
 
Oh right
I call dibs on the pitchforks.
 
is Angry Mob
 
5:32 PM
Now, if you were talking about stuff like Cogs or Audiosurf, those I still have extras of.
 
@Powerlord Cogs??
@Powerlord Pleeeeeeeese
 
Well @GnomeSlice can have it, I'm not really fussed
 
@RonanForman Aw, but now I feel like a spoiled child.
 
I'm more worried about the exorcism tbh
 
5:33 PM
@GnomeSlice Your entire Steam account is funded by us, isn't it? ;-)
 
@GnomeSlice IT WORKED!
 
@ArdaXi No, Alien swarm is free.
@RonanForman Hey no way
@Powerlord This one, right? store.steampowered.com/app/26500
 
@GnomeSlice Not technically on your Steam account.
 
@ArdaXi Oh right. It's silly, it wouldn't let me add friends until I have some games on my account.
Althought, I'm not sure if I do, technically.
 
@GnomeSlice Yes
I was checking the Gaming Steam group. ;)
 
5:34 PM
@Powerlord Yes.
 
@Powerlord Yes. It's the one me and FallenAngelEyes are friends of.
 
I don't deserve this kind of nice treatment from you people.
 
@Powerlord Actually that looks neat
 
Oh right, I probably have to add your to my friends list first.
 
5:35 PM
Does anyone know who 'jackalope' is, and why he friended me?
 
> Portal is a third-person adventure game built on Valve's Steam engine. In addition to the character you control, you are guided through the game by the GLaDOS AI, who has some hilarious Passive-Aggressive dialog.
confused
 
third-person?
Took me a minute.
@Powerlord Accepted.
 
@Powerlord Explain yourself.
 
@ArdaXi Where is that from?
 
@Wipqozn @Powerlord
 
5:37 PM
@ArdaXi Yeah, I have no idea why I put third-person in there. I forget, can you actually edit reviews?
 
@Powerlord No. You can only delete and remake them.
 
Hah.
 
@ArdaXi Yeah, figures.
 
I'm actually just trying the demos of all these game your mentioning, my internet is slooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwww
 
Is @LessPopMoreFizz here?
 
5:39 PM
@Arda Well if @Powerlord is giving me Cogs, then @Ronan should probably get your Defence Grid
 
@GnomeSlice Damn I'd prefer cogs!
 
@RonanForman Really?
 
My defence grid? I'd rather not take that offline.
Well, I didn't buy Cogs before I got the potato sack.
 
@GnomeSlice I don't know anymore!
 
@RonanForman GAH
WHO EVER THOUGHT MOOCHING COULD BE SO DIFFICULT.
 
5:40 PM
@ArdaXi Just like I didn't buy Defence Grid before I got the potato pack.
 
drama insertion completed
That's weird.
 
Do either Cogs or Defence grid need a nice computer to play well?
 
I think Cogs will run better than DG on a crappy computer.
 
Although, I was interested in several potato games I didn't own, which is why I bought the pack... Amnesia, Toki Tori, RUSH, TWEotW, and the extra copy of Killing Floor, which I promptly gave to my friend Gadeval because she wanted it.
 
@GnomeSlice It's the sharing that's hard
 
5:42 PM
@Powerlord Yeah, the Potato sack cost me about as much as buying every game I was actually interested in individually.
 
@RonanForman Absolutely.
 
@ArdaXi Mine was like $5 less excepting the Killing Floor copy, so I just went ahead and got them all.
 
I like how I made a big deal of Toki Tori a long time ago, and no one cared.
Then it went on sale in Steam, and everyone proceeded to flip the fuck out.
RIDDLE ME THAT.
 
@GnomeSlice Yeah but that was because you made a big deal about it.
That usually means it's uninteresting.
 
@ArdaXi Amusing, I have those, too.
 
5:43 PM
@ArdaXi But that was before I had my reputation.
 
Except not redeemed for either.
 
@Ronan > Would you rather have Cogs? =]
 
@Powerlord Well yes, but one is 1 and one is One.
The 1 is the older one, but the version in my games list is also listed as One, although I remember it being 1 before.
So they probably renamed it.
 
Funny, @Powerlord isn't listed under 'friends who own this game'
 
@GnomeSlice Why do you always do that > thingy?
@GnomeSlice For which?
 
5:44 PM
@GnomeSlice I haven't tried either but from the trailers, yes
 
@ArdaXi Oh, right, I guess I don't need to with @mentions
@RonanForman If you have an ipod touch/iphone, try the free version of cogs there
10 free puzzles
It's difficult. :/
@ArdaXi For Cogs
 
I never really liked Cogs. If I could give you my copy, I would.
 
I didn't actually like Cogs as much as I had been hoping.
 
@ArdaXi You could just give him your account.
 
5:45 PM
I guess I'm not smart enough for it. :P
 
@GnomeSlice I've dled the demo on steam
 
@Wipqozn All 131 games?
 
@ArdaXi Hm, he's listed under friends who PLAY cogs, but not who own it.
 
@ArdaXi Yeah, where's your Christmas spirit?
 
@Wipqozn +1
 
5:46 PM
@Wipqozn About half a year away.
 
@ArdaXi Greedy lovely person.
 
@Wipqozn Ahem.
 
@Wipqozn What if he's Jewish?
 
Wait, I refreshed, and now he's there.
@ArdaXi I don't know what that is.
 
5:47 PM
@Powerlord > Throw @Ronan your copy of Cogs. =]
@ArdaXi What's Amnesia?
 
defense grid looks generic
 
@Powerlord Hanukkah spirit
 
@GnomeSlice Creepiest game you'll ever play.
@RonanForman It isn't, really.
 
I really like Tower Def games.
 
@GnomeSlice Horror-adventure game type thing.
 
5:48 PM
I'm not particularly skilled at them, but I like them.
@Powerlord Oh. I'll pass.
 
@GnomeSlice Well that sorted the dilema
 
@GnomeSlice: I've been wondering, does it send you an email when I reassign that?
 
RE: Amnesia, Zero Punctuation was rather positive about it. Think about that.
 
@RonanForman We weren't getting anyone anywhere.
@Powerlord reassign what?
 
That reminds me, I need to get around to beating Amnesia.
 
5:49 PM
@GnomeSlice The gift.
 
I don't even know which email account I used for Steam.
 
@Wipqozn Me too, but I'm kinda scared to launch it again.
 
@GnomeSlice Oh
 
Had you already sent it to me, @Powerlord?
 
@GnomeSlice I had, but I've resent it now, this time to Ronan.
 
5:50 PM
@ArdaXi I try only to play it at night, the scare if half the fun
 
@Powerlord =]
 
or Nanor as he's called on Steam.
 
Can you change your email address in steam?
I can't see a way to do so.
 
@Powerlord I renamed him, to make it a bit easier on me.
 
I can't recall why I stopped playing Amensia...just kept getting side tracked by other gamesI think
 
5:50 PM
@Wipqozn You can't recall?
 
@ArdaXi I didn't know you could do that!
 
@ArdaXi rasp
 
@Arda > So, Ronan got Cogs.
 
cogs time!
 
2 days ago, by Thomas McDonald
Yeah, I forgot Arda was leet with the Steamworks API.
 
5:51 PM
@ArdaXi Yeah, I bought it last year. I can't recall if I was side tracked by other games, or if t was exams
 
In short, yes. You can do that.
@Wipqozn It was a horrible, horrible pun.
 
@ArdaXi I thought it was supposed to be, but it went over my head so I just ignored it.
 
I suppose if I want to download these gifts, I'll need to switch to my desktop which actually has Steam on it.
 
@Wipqozn Recall? Amnesia?
 
@ArdaXi oh, ok. Gotcha. feels stupid
 
5:52 PM
Although, to keep Steam from crashing, I have to disabled my anitvirus.
 
Hopefully I won't remember this
 
@ArdaXi Apparently he didn't get that I was giving you the raspberry because of the bad joke
 
@Wipqozn It's okay, I have that effect on most people.
@Powerlord Raspberry? I don't get that one. :(
 
@Arda So what are the system requirements for Defence Grid?
 
Blowing a raspberry or strawberry or making a The Bronx cheer is to make a noise signifying derision (and/or silliness), made by sticking out the tongue between the lips and blowing to make a sound reminiscent of flatulence. In the terminology of phonetics, this sound can be described as an unvoiced linguolabial trill . It is never used in human language phonemically (i.e., to be used as a building block of words), but it is widely used across human cultures. Nomenclature varies: in the US, Bronx cheer is sometimes used; otherwise, in the US and in other English-speaking countries, it is...
 
5:54 PM
@Powerlord Ah, an unvoiced linguolabial trill. Should've said that.
 
/rasp is one of my favorites emotes in WoW. :D
 
@Arda because even Galcon Fusion loses some frames on my Desktop.
:P
 
I dunno, I'm not Google. :)
 
Silly you.
I don't actually know how to see gifted games anyway.
I think I need to use the Steam client?
 
Yep.
 
5:58 PM
=[
nyarrrrrrg
 
So, I hear that EA isn't going to carry the next Battlefield game on Steam because Steam doesn't send emails to customers when game updates occur or when they want to hawk microtransactions to them and stuff.
 
Sheesh these games DO take a lot longer than those in the iPhone edition of the game.
 
@GnomeSlice Wow. Just, literally just as you said that, Yahtzee made the exact same sound.
 
What?
Since when does Yahtzee go nyarrrrrrg?
 
Interesting
