Disappointed in the 2013 black friday

I thought black friday was the hottest shopping day of the year, second only to cyber monday.

If black friday is the hottest shopping day of the year, where are the hot deals on guns? Besides Palmetto State Armory running a short deal on AR-15 upper receivers, it appears to me the rest of the gun industry has ignored the hottest shopping day of the year.Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

There are some so called “sales” out there, such as a Bushmaster for $1,000, which is laughable. Why would anyone want to buy a Bushmaster for $1k, when you can get a Colt 6920 for anywhere from $900 – $1,200. When a colt 6920 cost less than a Bushmaster, something is seriously wrong with the market.

Where are the good deals on AR-15s and AK-47s? For that part, where are the good deals on anything gun related?

Steam 2012 2013 Holiday sale

The Steam holiday sale is just about over; when this article was posted there is only about 23 hours left. There were some good sales, there were some crap sales and some games did not even go on sale.

L4d/L4D2 – went on sale for 75% off. But then again, that package goes on sale all through the year. I bought the L4D/L4D2 package a couple of months ago, stored it in my game inventory, then gifted it to a friend.

ARMA 2 – went on sale for 50% off a couple of times. I finally bought it just to play Day Z.

Fallout Series – it sucks that the Fallout bundle did not go on deep discount. I ended up buying Fallout: New Vegas from Green Man Gaming.

Witcher / Witcher 2 – went on deep discount, I almost bought Witcher 2, but decided not to at the last minute.

The Elder Scrolls – Morrowind and Oblivion both went on sale at 75% off, while Skyrim went on for 50% off. To me, that is a good deal. Skyrim is well worth $29.99. I was lucky enough to catch it on sale a few months ago for $19.99.

Quake Package – Quake I went on sale, but the Quake package did not go on deep discount. What pissed me off, when a game goe son sale, the game package usually goes on sale as well. When Quake won the community vote, the Quake package did not go on sale. I started a thread on the sale at the steam community forums, but the thread was locked by a heavy handed moderator.

Unreal Package – one of the biggest letdowns of the Steam sale was Unreal did not go on sale. None of the Unreal games went on sale, nor did the Unreal pack go on sale.

Borderlands – Borderlands I went on sale for 75% off, while Borderlands II went on for 50% off, which is inline with Skyrim.

Things To Do December 21 2012 Doomsday

List of things I plan on doing on doomsday, December 21, 2012. I usually have Fridays off.

Sleep late.

Go back to sleep.

Wake up again.

Take shower; wash hair, wash face, wash butt,,,,.

Brush teeth.

Fix breakfast.

Check on chickens.

Turn on computer

Check forum, check facebook, check blog.

Check various news sites; foxnews, RT, BBC, yahoo, cnn,,,.

See who is on steam.

Maybe play a game of Left 4 Dead 2.

Steam holiday sale is supposed to start soon. If the sale has launched before December 21, see what games are on sale.

Ultimate Doom Final Doom and Doom II

Decided to visit the Steam Store to see if any good games are on sale. The big holiday sale usually starts around December 19th, so I was not expecting any great deals this close to the holiday sale.

While I was browsing the games in Steam I looked up Doom.

You ever get that feeling when you see something that brings back some good memories? Maybe a picture of an old friend, toy that you played with as a child,,,, stuff like that.

That is the same feeling I get when I see The Ultimate Doom and the Final Doom. Doom II was ok, I never could develop an interest in it though.

My wife saw the Ultimate Doom at wal-mart, bought it for me, brought it home, tapped me on the shoulder, handed it to me and said something like, “this looks like something you might be interested in.”

There was just something about Doom that pulled me in. When I first started playing, it was like I was consumed by the game. I played hour after hour and after of Ultimate Doom.

A few months later my wife brought Final Doom home. Holy crap, it was like level after level after level of demons and slaughter.

Then along came Quake

After a buddy of mine told me about Quake, and I got internet, my life was never the same.

Even though Quake was a great game in multiplayer, it did not have the atmosphere like Doom had.

Why I play Left 4 Dead

What makes the Left 4 Dead series so awesome? Just about everything. I have over 1,600 hours in Left 4 Dead 2, and almost 700 hours in the original Left 4 Dead.

When the original Left 4 Dead was released I put off buying it until it went on sale. The first place that had it on sale was Best Buy in Beaumont Texas. I think best Buy had Left 4 Dead on sale for something like $10 off.

Got Left 4 Dead home, installed it, steam updated the game to the newest version. From the first couple of minutes I understood why people were raving about Left 4 Dead. It is a perfect mix of atmosphere and teamwork.

In most multiplayer games people can run off and do their own thing. In Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, one person can affect the outcome of the game.

Steam Summer Sale Saturday July 14

Third day of the Steam Summer sale (Saturday, July 14, 2012), and finally some games go on sale that I have been watching – Dead Island, Skyrim and Left 4 Dead 2 is the community puck for 75% off.

A few weeks ago I created a steam account for the grandkids – it sure beats buying console games at full price. The steam sales are when I stockup on the games. Why pay full price, when you can wait a few months and get the games on sale?

Even though Steam has a great sale every 6 months or so, I still buy new games when they come out. I preordered Left 4 Dead 2, and I am going to preorder Borderlands when it becomes available on Steam.

The games on sale on Friday July 14, 2012:

Indie bundle III – $9.99
Dirt Showdown $24.99
Skyrim $29.79
Tropico 4 – $7.49
Two worlds – $7.49
Orcs must die – $3.74
Borderlands – $4.99
Frozen Synapse – 44.99
Dead island – $10.19

The Left 4 Dead 2 Boycotters Were Right

As we approach the 2 year anniversary of l4d2, in retrospect, I think the boycotters were right.   The presales L4D2 hype failed to live up to a lot of things. Dynamic paths – removed Dynamic weather – removed Dynamic night and day – removed Some of the best versus maps ruined due to glitches, bugs […]
