    Aye but what he means is that on steam if they price something at $49.99 then they'll price it 49.99 euros as well.

    Oh. Really? That's unfair...
    Well lucky for me, my Steam region is in USD, for some reason...

    On the other hand, I pay TONS for hardware. TONS. :bang:

    I've been debating about NWN2 it's a game I missed when it came out and always wanted to play it. Prob is I don't have enough time for another RPG ATM!

    WTF - Terrania was 75% off and when I updated to pay for it, it jumped back up to 50% off instead?! I'll wait for the last day then.

    Keep in mind it's the game companies who do this, not Steam itself.

    I bought DoW2 Retribution for 14.99 the first time it went on sale. Now its 7.49 :( should have waited more.

    It was a mistake on Steams behalf, it's back to 50% off now. Though Steam has cocked up like this a few times in the sale, and it's not paticularly fair on people in general. I was lucky enough to pick up a few copies of Terraria with it discounted to 75% off, after a few hours they changed it to 50%. Risen was another game that had its price upped after a few hours.

    I was going to buy Retribution for £7.50, everything looked fine until I got to the confirmation screen and the price had been jacked up. Luckily I pay directly with my card so there was no problem. If you check the steam forums you'll find a few people who added money to their steam wallet in order to purchase only to find they can no longer afford the product. I hope steam has the decency to refund them.

    While the mark-ups aren't exactly huge, it's the principal of the matter.

    Same feeling. I bought the Assassin's Creed pack for $50.49 just a month ago, and today the same pack costs $27.19. :bang:

    Yeah steam servers are too busy to download the witcher 2... looks like I won't be playing tonight.

    When I tried to buy Crysis 2 through origin, it took 4 hours to process my request.

    lol digital distribution

    Does Terraria play with a gamepad?
    (Please don't turn this into yet-another-keyboard-vs-gamepad question) "Yay" or "Nay" would be enough.

    Personally I liked play Portal 2 with my XBOX 360 controller more than KBM ... since precision isn't really paramount in said game tbh lol. It promotes a more sit-back-and-relax feeling for me in Portal 2.

    As for Terraria, no clue, don't have said game.
