Damn, might have to pick up System Shock 2 at that price. Last time I tried to play it was years ago and I remember needing major workarounds, so I am assuming it runs no issues now. Can anyone confirm?
EDIT - Purchased. Can now play it on a Mac as well? Yeah, done deal there.

 

Did Papers Please go on sale yet does anyone know? That is what I am waiting for myself.

EDIT 2 - Also purchased Contagion. Looks decent, and the price was definitely right.

 

I want to beef up my Steam library as I am not 100% sure, but think I am getting a Nvidia SHIELD tomorrow for XMas. Either that or a 3DS, so at those prices, why not.

And I see Papers Please is on sale, but going to wait and see if it really goes on sale.

Tried to buy something off steam today. As soon as I press buy for myself, I get an error.

It's been a few hours now, still doesn't work, this is ridiculous.

 

They are losing lots of sales

I highly doubt they just went and said to their IT: "Hey, limit the bandwidth for these servers for a bit so people have a hard time buying stuff and whatnot". They'll get it fixed up when they're able to, until then.. patience!

Yes but it happens every time ! Last year, the year before .... And the year before that.

 

The download servers are supposed to be separate from the store. At least they could introduce a queue system or something, to limit the traffic when everyone is clicking the buy button at the same time

Yeah good price, but I won't put that DRM on any of my systems.  So, again, you have lost a sale ;)

 

Uplay is fine. It doesn't run in the background (well it does when you are playing something lol) once you close it, and it's stable and runs fine. The integrated features it has and UI are basically Steam with a Ubisoft spin. So I don't see any problem with Uplay anymore.

 

darn it, I love dark souls, Oh M Gee. what a good purchase. Not for the feint hearted :D

Remember to use the resolution mod and the other fixes that are out there. Otherwise, meh. :D
