    Hey...wait a second. Wasn't there a steam sale a month ago? Why yes there was. However, it's like not everyone is having all the games in the universe yet, because...

    Steam is holding a holiday sale starting now.


    So erm...yeah. From now up until the third of January, games are (again) cheaper. :)

    Oh boy, I get to save so much money while throwing away all the cash I'd been trying to save up.

    I must own most of the games at this point since I didn't buy anything last two sales.





    GG Steam.

    that place
    And I got every Bit.Trip game except for Runner 2 :P
    I don't know if I want to get anything else though. I'm going to sit tight and pounce if I see anything interesting.

    That game just got released, it's only 1 month old. Wait for the next sale and you'll have a good chance to get it -75%.
    It's astonishing it's already -50% really, hasn't been out long enough.

    Yeah. I mean if I can buy a Keyboard for the Dreamcast, I can play the game that way. Here's hoping FFVII goes dirt cheap though.

    Dammit, Humble Bundle spoiled me. Steam Sales suck :angry:

    Speaking of FF7, if you do get it, make sure you have the sound mod installed. Trust me :P

    Why? Isn't the game already optimized for PC's?

    Depends on what you mean by "optimized", considering it was largely a reissue of the 1998 port.

    It uses the same f***ing piss poor soundtrack as the PC version. The mod replaces it with the PSX version instead, unless you want your ears to bleed, then yeah, the mod will make the soundtrack better.

    It's actually already been updated officially, no more MIDI (or at least not as bad as it was before on the steam re-release)! :grog:

    Oh yeah, forgot they actually patched it. It's FF8 that hasn't been officially, and I'm sure they won't either :P Anyway, I hope SC Blacklist actually gets a nice discount this time :D

    They'll probably just take the FFVIII midi mod someone made and use it in a steam update. Squareeeeenix already did the same with on of the usermade FFVII patches, shipping it without credit initially. Now the authors are referenced somewhere, but no money goes to them :/

    Meh, for FF7, it was a matter of making OGG files and looping them, for 8, it was a bit trickier since it used .sgt files, but they still managed to do it.
