End of old thread

 

Old thread ran out of Steam (pun intended)...

 

Current subject was Steam trading cards.

 

Never heard of them :)

Haven't really bothered to read up on it, but...why would you want to buy them ? I get selling them, if someone wants to give you money for something, by all means.

I suspect for the same reason that you'll find people spending money on purely cosmetic DLC for games.

I sell my spares and use the money I make that way to buy the ones for the sets of the games I actually enjoy. No way I'd spend any extra cash on it though.

Everything I've got so far I've done just through trading. Trying to find people that have the cards has been half the fun for me so far. :)

I've only got three cards, which I didn't even know about until reading about them here.  All three are for Crusader Kings 2 if anyone wants them.  Of course they will have to explain how I would go about giving them away.  :)

All you have to do is add someone on steam to your friends list like say this guy:-  You can then right click on their name in the friends list and select "invite to trade". A new window will pop up for the trade itself. From there it's just drag and drop the items you want to trade.

Okaaay, I think I sent a friend invite.  I'll try and send them to you now.  :thumbsup:

 

Edit:  Nope.  When I right click on your name in the friend list, I just get the menu with 'Back', 'Forward', 'Reload', etc.  :blink:

 

Edit again.  Seems I have to have had Steam Guard enabled for 15 days before I can trade.  You'll have to wait a couple of weeks before I can send them to you.  :getlost:

Ah, that's a pain. I've seen a number of people get caught by stuff like that. I knew that you had to have it enabled for marketplace transactions, but I didn't think it had to be on for trading on your friends list.

I only have 2 people on my friends list, and one of them randomly added me from a Paradox group I was in.

It seems kind of arbitrary what Steam's new not-quite-offline mode can do: it won't grant you cards while playing, but will now save achievements. It won't update games, but will update itself. It won't take screenshots but will show the store homepage.

 

Paranoid perhaps, but it makes me wonder what other data they're slurping while I'm nominally offline.

 

 

 

Aside, wacky EA pricing: The Sims 3 by itself: $39.99. The Sims 3 + the Pets expansion pack: $44.99. The Sims 3 + the University Life expansion pack: $19.99. Oookay.

Don't be so anti social, there are a ton of us from the forum in the Steam group :p

I see, so no real good reason then :p

All I do is sell any dupes I get.  I don't put any effort into getting cards.  If I get one I get one.  If that mean that eventually I get a badge, or whatever, then I get a badge.

It do have to fess up and say I wound up buying a clothing DLC for Tomb Raider.  embarrassed-smiley62.gif

 

Of course, it was only $0.24, which I was able to cover with money I got from selling a trading card.  Plus, Lara just looked so cold in those early scenes.  I was just being a gentleman by getting her that sweet bomber jacket to keep her warm (and stylish).

I bought 2-3 keys for Team Fortress 2 crates (lottery type curiosity) and nothing before or since.

 

I'd never buy DLC. Usually the price of the game is what i'm willing to spend on it. a teaspoon sized helping of content does nothing for me either way. Especially not later when I'm already done with the game.

I said I'd never buy DLC early on in this generation, but every piece of DLC I have bought have been under €5 and worth the money.

KoToR2 is on a flash sale and DoW2: Retribution is on a daily sale right now.  If I didn't already own both of them, I'd be buying the **** out of them right now. (that translates to a recommendation for both games)

Was hoping Monaco would have won the voting for the next community sale, but it fell short. But then visited the dev's website and they're selling the four-pack for $30 which would have matched the $7.50 price it would have been on Steam had it won the vote.

 

 

But then their website failed under load. So I guess I'll come back later.

I think I'll pass on the rest of the sale. I have such a backlog, I wont have time to even consider playing anything I'd buy now till next year anyway.

Picked up Organ Trail for a buck and change, then proceeded to spend way too much time playing it!  It was a pretty fun romp

I also bought Organ Trail, but only to try if my new bank card would work (it didn't when I tried to buy Hotline Miami). It worked so now I own it but I have no intention to ever play it.
