It took me a couple of tries.

Just bought Borderlands - I know I'll crack and get at least one other.

Bioshock 2 was cheap but I kinda regret it now, all this DRM and GFWL crap. Ugh. It took me 30 mins just to get the game running.

You must be pretty bad at getting games running.

Got Bioshock 2 last week and played the game with zero problems, let alone it launched very quickly.

Maybe because I already have an already created GFWL account but I had no issues at all with Bioshock2.

So what was your steam damage like? I hit $95.30 . I didn't even realize I spent that much till now. Bioshock2 was the most expensive game I bought at $14.99.

i was going to buy Just Cause 2 i tried the demo and a lot of fun, but i have way too many games to play and finish.

I also wanted to pick up Red Dead Redemption because that looks amazing.

I got to ask how do you guys have so much time to play and beat all these games?

Well for me that's not the appropriate question. I think the more appropriate question why do you buy so many games even if you don't have enough time to play and beat the ones you already own?

I know when I am buying console games I don't horde cause it's expensive, but steam sales are so cheap, I just can't see some of the games getting cheaper so I just end up buying even if I don't have the time. I have no problems passing up new releases cause my backlog is huge. I rented Red Dead Redemption and since the steam sale started I haven't touched it.

yeah console games are so much more expensive..so i don't have that many as well.

I just hate having this backlog of games to play it weird it like I don't buy too many at once and just let them sit there I figure by the time I even get to it, will be so cheap anyway LOL

Wow, you must be the best and coolest game installer, ever.

Um, it wouldn't activate for me over the internet. I don't know why. It gave me a activation code and wanted the key, which I put in. It wouldn't register. It said the key was invalid. Connection was ok.

Then, it worked all of a sudden......

I have never had this problem before.
