Feedbackula - Steam Sale Sourness

The Autumn Steam Sale is now on, and surprisingly not everybody is happy about it. Johnny stops browsing for cheap games for a minute to sift through the comments.

aren't we forgetting the great deals from GOG, Humble Store, GMG and Amazon? but I'm guessing that's only because they don't force you to open their market app every time you want to play a game.

A Shakespearean Tale of Elegant Spock's constant trolling nonsense was a long time coming.

Congrats on the video folks, it was a great production.

Hope there are many more to come in the future?

I may even get a "Lob-On," for it. ;)

Why are you wearing scarves indoors? Not getting enough bribes to pay the heating bills?

@Apastron Either your a terrible troll or its a terrible joke, but if you are that idiot Il explain it to you : They are wearing scarves because it is astereotypical type of style that theatre people usually stick to.

People that have a problem with the Steam sales are morons. If you do not like any of those games then do not buy them! If you do not like buying games that are digital then do not buy those. Is that so hard for some people to figure out? It just makes me laugh. How can anybody have an issue with a program like Steam that has many sales each year? oh I forgot....It is the internet......

@Cashmoney007 No, you see, there are early console adopters who went and spent $400-$500 on shiny new consoles with mostly medicore launch games and now stuck with big hunks of plastic waiting around for something killer to play for them thanks to no backwards compatatbility. Meanwhile PC gamers are enjoying a lot of good, cheap games on something that is backwards compatable.

At last, Johnneh, you embraced the soul of the Internet. Let the Internet spirit flow through you. Just hate everything without reason, use no logic.

These videos are strange. As unreasonable and brutish as comments might be, they're still your audience. They're still your fans. Is the base so large here that you can afford to admonish a portion of it? And misreading obvious sarcasm only adds to the problem - it's not even exclusively the jerks you're derogating. Not to mention these videos aren't much more than rereading comments. Then again, this is the website that posts news stories on Tweets, so I'm not sure what I'm really expecting here. The scarves were funny though?

@janlappalainen @Ambivalist The best thing on Gamespot is the staff reading fan comments in funny voices? I'd be okay if they wanted to make fun of me, sticks and stones or whatnot. I'd probably never notice because I don't often tune into this segment anyway. And, considering their creative capacity limits them to just reading what people say, you can save yourself the trouble by copying and pasting these comments into a text-to-speech program.

Did Johnny miss the sarcasm in most of those comments, or is it part of the joke? Nope, just finished the vid, other than the comments used in the EPIC performance piece (now I will read every argument like that in my head, the same way every Batman comic has Kevin Conroy...).

Sounded like they and I have something in common: I "hate" things I want going on sale when I should be saving more money. Self control is one thing, but try going through Black Friday weekend with $500 that wasn't planned for and all of your bills are up to date. DAMN YOU BUY 2 GET ONE FREE SALES!!!

0:54 Agreed. Wracking up all those cheap goodies will keep me entertained for quite a stretch.

I bought quite a few from Humble Store and GamersGate. All of which were DRM-free AND had Steam keys. Epic win.

Funny. I don't really watch Feedbackula, but this was funny.
BTW for anybody looking for alternative/better deals than Steam, try Amazon.com. I bought some games there that were 2-4 times cheaper than Steam.... and Amazon only sells you a code that you can use in steam... So technically save even more money. For example Metro Last Light is 26 on Steam Sale and 13 on Amazon sale.

And in case you don't live in US, just pick a valid US address for shipping and you'll be fine. The game doesn't ship... it's an online code...

@decebal The dirty little secret regarding Steam is that on any typical day its games are actually more expensive than many other retailers. This is despite the fact that they don't have to worry about retail boxes or shipping through the mail. I'm a big fan of Amazon and buy 90% of my games from them. The other 10% I get through gog.com. I actually try to avoid Steam, though I have been sucked in by a summer sale once or twice.

@pohman @decebal Combat is tactical, where you'll have to pause in most hard battles and strategize. Like decebal said, if you ever played pen & paper D&D, it should come rather naturally. Beyond the combat, it has a truly epic story, and the party dynamics are the best I've experienced in any video game. This was Bioware at its peak in my opinion. Mass Effect 2 and KotOR are the descendants of Baldur's Gate 2 in terms of gameplay and character development.

I would actually suggest playing BG1 then 2, thought BG2 is the superior game.

@pohman @decebal We'll if you are into Pen and Paper D&D... apply the mods and it doesn't get better than that. It's basically perfect.

But if that's not your cup of tea... you'll probably find the combat horrible.

I hope those who are angry over Steam sales don't go on Origin or Gamefly Digital and see other deals.

Especially where Battlefield 4 and Need for Speed Rivals were almost half price each. Kinda like how 2 years ago I got Battlefield 3 and Need for Speed: The Run at half price each also on Black Friday.

Hahahahahahaha! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. I loved the ham let acting.

I've already picked up four games on the Steam sale. Every so often I'm happy I'm a PC gamer...
