Cheeky son of a....Oh whoops, I forgot the valve only thing. ^^;
Does anyone have coupons for Oblivion, Amnesia or San Andreas? They're games I want to get but didn't for now because I went too overboard in past sales and, while I could easily afford them, I want to pace myself...why I didn't get GTA last year I don't know....
Lord British Role Model All-Pope Leo I, HNICI've got pretty much everything I wanted from this sale, but if anyone happens to have Assassin's Creed II or any coupons for 2k games or 2k sports so I could get NBA 2k12 down the line, I'll trade for that. I've got to offer:
Does anyone want TF 2 items (I have mostly weapons) or metal? I'll take coal for it.
This hat doesn't fit!Well, I actually am selling the following for Metal:
How much you want? What kinds? I have to go craft it.

This hat doesn't fit!Uh, well, for the coal, wanderlustwarrior gave me a Scrap each for 2 coal, so that makes 2 Scrap. So that's 3 Scrap for the coal. For the Vintage weapons, a Scrap each, so 2 Scrap.
Mothership online...also adorableUpdated inventory: Has:
Lord British Role Model All-Pope Leo I, HNICOh right, coal. Some of mine is up for offer too. So: Looking for:
This hat doesn't fit!Time to reiterate what I can sell: Coupons:
Insert titleIn the end, I have 50% Max Payne 2, 50% Avaddon the Black Fortress, 60% Magicka and 50% Valve. Will most likely save Avaddon and Magicka ones for me, but if you guys have good enough offers, I'm interested in cheap indie games, like SPAZ and stuff.
Time to change the style, for now
BTW, everyone, how good is Avadon? I saw it, it looked interesting, but I'm not experienced with WRP Gs and can't tell quality from QUALITY, or intensely involved game from easily-approachable game.

Mothership online...also adorableYou're not experienced with WRPG? If you're interested for more Spiderweb games (Avernum/Geneforge) then Avadon's a perfect entry point, since it has more simplified mechanic (doesn't mean it's that simple though...)...and game choice that actually matters... Also, just watched TotalBiscuit's WTF is Binding of Isaac...decide to definitely not open the game...this one's 100% for trade...and I got the soundtrack too...

The Soundtrack's just an extra 50 cents. Though yeah, not recommended for people who don't know what is a/aren't fans of roguelikes. Lots of random chance and difficulty, but once you get the hang of it, it's rather fun. Or maybe you're just squeamish and don't like dead baby humour, which is also a valid reason.

I have no problems with roguelikes (played several myself, although the only game I beat in Permadeath was Transcendence...)

Cheeky son of a....Yeah, it's a roguelike in the random sense...but it's nothing like any other roguelike I've ever seen. Not interested in the slightest.
Perpetual NoobI currently have:
I put on my robe and tinfoil hat...
Is it odd that I never found The Binding of Isaac disturbing? Then again, I suppose the only games I have found disturbing to be MadWorld and No More Heroes, which isn't many.
Lord British Role Model All-Pope Leo I, HNICOff topic, but those are some of my favorite games. What did you find disturbing about them? The Ultra Super Death Gore Fest Chainsawer 3000 (parody) or the social commentary?

I find dead baby humor more annoying than disturbing. It's mildly disturbing the way that anything of that sort would be, but the more annoying thing about it is that I don't find it funny at all, more like dull and humorless. That said, I do like roguelikes. Dungeons of Dredmor seems to be much more up my alley with its sense of humor. Trivia: At one point I was desperately trying to get The Binding of Isaac only because it was a holiday gift pile achievement game. That was when I started asking myself, would I actually enjoy this? How much long-term pleasure am I going to gain from these actions? And then I decided, fuck it. @ onyhow: I've had Avernum on my to-check-out list for a while now. Perhaps Avadon is a good starting point then. Thanks!

The Binding of Isaac is probably the only game in recent memory that has totally squicked me out. Apparently my tolerance for Dead Baby Comedy is actually really low.
Insert titleBinding of Isaac IS black humor, but humor is so black that most of the time its plainly scary, with exception of items like "My little unicorn" which makes you flash in colors of rainbow and be invincible Really, its good game, creepy yes but good. I wouldn't really call it dead baby comedy unless you are supposed to laugh at "You get a wooden spoon!"*spoon hit marks appear* type of stuff. Okay, some of the stuff ARE dead baby comedy though.(For example, Max's head which is head of dog/puppy. What it does? Tears up and change in Isaac is that his eyes are even more tearful) Though dead baby comedy is... What do you call comedy that is "funny" by surprise? Anyway, most of it is variation of "Hah, silly item-*sees its name/how it changes Isaac" Oh." kind of one.(for example, picking up dog's food labeled "Lunch" and such) I guess game is supposed to be funny, but even though I hate dead baby comedy, I can't hate the game because I can't see it most of the time as comedy .-. Its too morbid to register to me as "That was supposed to be funny", so I just find it plain creepy without realizing its supposed to be funny. I mean, you guys wouldn't consider Silent Hill games dead baby comedy, just scary games, right? @Baron: I want Anomaly coupon, can you give me your steam id and discuss about it with me on steam?(My ID is Jackdaw Mask)

Off topic, but those are some of my favorite games. What did you find disturbing about them? The Ultra Super Death Gore Fest Chainsawer 3000 (parody) or the social commentary?For MadWorld, I watched some trailers and I found the violence to be a bit too over-the-top for my tastes and disturbing for that reason. For No More Heroes, there was something about the main character. I played the game up until the first boss and found him(the protagonist character) somewhat disturbing. I don't really have anything against the games, but I don't think they're for me.
Lord British Role Model All-Pope Leo I, HNICThe violence doesn't let up, so if you've got an issue with that, you shouldn't invest in the games. For the latter, there is a ton of Character Development for Travis, who begins as a This Loser Is You who becomes a Take That to the genre and an effective protagonist a little bit less than halfway through the game. It persists into the sequel. I wouldn't say that. He straddles the line between Anti-Hero and Villain Protagonist. He also still has moments of (normal) stupidity, but I would recommend sticking along for the ride. Jack from MadWorld summed up the two of them: "We don't help people. We kill them." Travis had an indirect response in No More Heroes Desperate Struggle. I really would recommend playing them through for the story, or at least watching the cutscenes if you don't like the violence.
