I think I'm around there. Don't remember the date. I can make infantry and planes though.
Currently contemplating on wiping out America who's sharing the continent with me.

$18 still isn't worth buying a silly game for a silly mod.

Why pirate a game when you can buy it for $8 and get it faster than by torrenting?

I regretted buying Sim City 4. Should have went with Tropico 4, at least I would have had witty banana republic things to do.

i downloaded it before the sale, and if you can't download something as fast/faster than steam you're doin it rong.

I bought Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition during the first Flash Sale.
I already had the regular version from the last Holiday sale, but the Ultimate Edition was cheaper than all DLCs separately.

FO:NV is so much better than FO3 in pretty much every way.
The only thing I really miss is crafting home made basic weapons, like the dart gun with poison arrows or the Rock-It launcher for firing trash at enemies.
Now all those parts seem useless...


I also bought the two latest Killing Floor character DLCs.
They were on -40% and I thought that this was already from the sale, only to see the game popping up for -75% a few days later.
Twice.

Well, the thing is, once you've downloaded from Steam, you can instantly play it.
No need to mount images, no installation, no patching, no applying of cracks.

I have a 100Mbit connection and get download rates of ~10MB/s on Steam.
I think I have pirated only 1 or 2 games in the last few years, and that was only because they were not available on Steam.

Picked up Red Orchestra 2, Just Cause 2, Saints Row the Third (Complete Pack) and a mate gifted me the Arkham City Pack.

Not too bad considering I only spent ~$20.

Got Borderlands GOTY for only $7.50 (Flash sale) and Arma 2 (the version to play DayZ) for $18. Yup, I'm a happy camper.

Alan Wake, Crysis 2, Dragon Age, Batman Arkham City, ARMA 2, and Mig gave me Beyond Good and Evil which was jolly nice of him. Hopefully they are games I will actually play. I still have Bioshock 2 and Mafia 2 sitting in my library unloved and unplayed.

You can sum up Bioshock 2 in three words anyway, fire and water. Best looking effects of that nature I've ever seen.

Please tell me how I can download faster than my connection allows for. Can you also show me where to download more megahertz for my CPU?

No.
Many ISPs practice traffic shaping and other filter methods, so the Bittorrent protocol gets throttled to much lower speeds than Steam's cloud servers (or other direct download services like Rapidshare).
And running Bittorrent on an anonymous network like TOR, which might help getting around traffic shaping, drastically reduces your peers, and thus your speeds and availabilities of files.

I'm consistently getting ~10 Mbyte/s on Steam, which is almost the maximum of 12.5 Mbyte/s I can theoretically get with my ISP.
I get that speed right from the start, and all the way until it's finished, which I have never ever achieved with Bittorrent.

Also, as I said before, the game is up-to-date with the latest patch and ready to run with Steam, a time-consuming effort that could be calculated into the price too.

Idk about your steam, but mines shit, 100-250kb max. Torrents/other sites 1-3mb.
