    Wow, they increased the prices for the tickets quite significantly, it seems (except for speeding).

    Haha! Yep, while the game sounds interesting, at the current price of $40, it will probably be at least a year before it's on my shopping list.

    Indeed, I'll probably be playing it sometime next year while waiting for Torment to be released.

    Damn it, I've made another purchase. Four games for less than 5€. I just couldn't resist.

    Every time I get that "Thank you for your purchase!" email, I see Gaben's smug face looking at me knowingly.

    You’ll need some sort of headache remedy. You’ll need that because of all the drinking you’ll have to do. You’ll need to drink a lot because that’s the only thing that makes associating with Torontonians tolerable.

    I'm up to 3 games. Just bought the Siberia bundle (1+2). These are games which I've been somewhat tempted by in the past but the genre has never really appealed to me, so I didn't bother. However, for $1.50, I decided to give it a go.

    Yep, it was 1.09 € for me. I also decided to buy Marlow Briggs which was 0.99 € and Space Hulk for 2.30 €. Then I went to GOG and noticed Bard's Tale was $2, so I bought that too.

    There's a bunch of free games on GOG this time around though. That's pretty cool.

    On Saturday I visited the local big hardware store. 6 pieces of pre-made fence, and the stuff to place it with.

    Only 4 pieces in stock. So they ordered two more. After three days I stop by for some paint and find out that they had received new fences, but my two fences would arrive next week.

    I can understand that people snap and spew all kind of language or even get violent. If I did not stop by, I would have waited for 7 days while they had those fences on the shelves.

    And stores ask themselves why so many people shop online.

    I like Steam sales. And yes, I buy games during it. Torchlight 2 for less than 5 euro.

    Dishonored is definitely a game I want. It meets my sale price purchase criteria, but I decided I'll wait until the GOTY version goes to $5 on sale - maybe in the fall or at Xmas. It's not like I'd be playing it before then anyway.

    So I decided to buy Batman: Arkham City GOTY for $5 instead. The one listed was Arkham Origins, but I find that when one game of a series is on sale, are the other ones are too, so when I checked out B:AC, there it was. I enjoyed Arkham Asylum, so hopefully AC is good too.

    It's unlikely the GOTY edition will drop significantly in price this year. And the DLCs are meh anyway.

    That's quite possible, but I don't mind waiting. With about a dozen unplayed games in my Steam library, it will be well over a year before I get to Dishonored anyway.

    Well, Dishonored is one I would get too, if it were on GoG. I'm impervious to steam sales.

    By now I'm getting impervious to GoG sales as well, but that's mostly because I already got all the games I was even remotely interested in. I probably shouldn't have, as it'll be probably more than a year before I would finish them, even if I didn't replay old games all the time.

    The nice thing about replaying games is that it doesn't require a lot of presence of mind. You know how to play it, where to go, what to do, so you just kind of effortlessly breeze through it. New games, on the other hand, you need to think on what to do, where to go.

    To be honest, there's not a lot of thinking involved in new games. :p
