Could you explain?

Sure.

Here's an example: First day of sales, you see Skyrim at 50% off and buy it right away because you've been eagerly awaiting to get that game. Two days later, Skyrim goes on a flash sale and reaches a 75% off. What will you do?

Good human being: "F*ck! If I had waited a bit longer, I could have gotten the day a lot cheaper. Oh, well. That will teach me to not hurry and buy right away."

Scumbag: "F*ck! Oh, well. I refund the game back and then re-buy the game again for less taking advantage of its current lower price."

 

And that's how we ended without flash sales.

That's incredibly harsh labelling those who wanted the lower price scumbags.

In fact I'd say it's a scumbag tactic putting something on sale for one price and then a couple days later offering it an even lower price.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Wow. I'm stunned.

Of course that's what has happened. I never liked the refund system because it screws up reviews and other data, plus the scumbags that on purpose buy a game, give bad review and then refund. But now, when you say that it ruined the flash sales, damn, I'm so sad they had to introduce refunds (because of some international law I presume. Please don't tell me it was the EU.).

"F*ck! Oh, well. I refund the game and re-buy the game again".



Thanks, just purchased 3 cheapest games recently, can't buy more games because i already bought Core i7 6800K & 64GB(4x16GB) DDR4 RAM 2400Mhz. xD

Portal 2, Wolfenstein the Old Blood & Deus Ex Human Revolution.



Battletag: Quakecore89#1866 / GOG: AMDFX89 / PSN: QuakeCore_89 / Xbox Live Tag: QuakeCore89 / NS: SW-7937-5976-6855

Current PCs: -PC 2017(Ryzen 7 3700X/32GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM/GeForce RTX 2060 6GB/Crucial 250GB M.2(Boot) Kingston 1TB SSD(Storage))

Bought Fallout 4 finally. 50% off for 50% of Fallout 4's content seems fair.

Must say I miss the votes and the different sale types which kept you coming back to check each day (but understand why they've had to be ditched)



Walking Dead Michonne and Claptastic Voyage DLC are only things I'm getting. Nothing else is catching my interests.

I'm going to grab a few things. Including Skyrim Legendary edition since you get a free upgrade to the Special edition later this year.

Yeah I guess you're right, but the sales still don't seem as great as they used to be :-/

 

But Stardew Valley is on sale (though only 20% off)! I've been meaning to get it have had it wishlisted for a while. Should I go for it now, or wait til I can get it cheaper?

Tbh I haven't seen a good sale from anywhere in a good few years, Steam some years back once had 90% and that to me was absolutely insane as all hell to see happen, though at best we see 75% being the max, if not 80% in a blue moon. I nabbed Fallout 4 last Winter at a much cheaper price than what Steam's winter sale was selling for and that alone is pretty telling. 



                                       

Bought Arkham Asylum and City for $5 each. Seems like a good deal considering the PS4/Xbox One versions don't look that great from what I've seen.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

They have a good sale on Santum 2 though, 80% off (and it's a cheap game to begin with). It's a great game, my second most played Steam game at 160 hours.



I bought a couple that were still on my wishlist. Wish there was an easy way to see how much it's going to download with my capped internet. Maybe I just can't find it?

Oh well, it's going quite fast, can't be too much. I'm not buying any big games anyway, still $45/$48 CAD in the sale. Not a great deal for digital only imo.

Edit: Ahh PC gaming never changes. Massive stuttering, even on the lowest settings, though my laptop matches recommended settings. Now downloading new video drivers and trying to edit pcconfig.txt. Except there are no carriage returns in the text file so notepad puts it all as one big line. Meanwhile browsing forums how to get it working. How I miss thee, pc gaming. (Trying to get Lego worlds running as a surprise for my kids, school's almost over)
