Why do you have State of Decay on the list this week? Does it leave "Early Acces" that it has been available on for some weeks or something?

 A word of warning then, in case anyone wants to purchase a finished product - its not ready.

Nothing. Next-gen around the corner, and still playing (and really enjoying) the latest Phoenix Wright game.

It's supposed to be seeing the "final" version released this week, so I think you're jumping the gun on the warning a bit since I'd expect another patch for the release.  They have also had 2 patches since the last time you played it for your total 0.1 hour recorded on Steam. 

I haven't had any troubles running it, but I have also mostly been playing with an attached 360 controller.

HAHA, are you stalking me? Funny that it says so - I've played it a few hours this friday? I guess we'll see but yes, I'm talking about controllers not being quite there. Graphics had some issues as well where I had to use the NVIDIA control panel to set it to use my Nvidia card, instead of the onboard one on my laptop, so it wasn't quite there yet.

The game itself is brilliant, dont get me wrong! Best console game I've played for years!

I'll be getting The Guided Fate Paradox for PS3.  Unless Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD somehow makes it out this year, this will probably be my last day-one purchase for 2013.

Wasn't planning on anything, but then I noticed that I can get any new game at Gamestop for $10 when trading in a couple other games that I was done with anyways (Diablo 3 and Dragon's Crown).  I wasn't interested in AC4 at $60, but might be for $10.

Hehe, yeah, after seeing your post I wanted to see if you had played since their most recent patches so I checked your Steam Community page, since they supposedly improved mouse/keyboard stuff quite a bit in the last one.  smile

Unrelated question:   Why do people trade in games when they could sell them on ebay and make 40+ dollars back in a lot of cases (if sold in time).   

I realize that the eBay fees are a lot more than they used to be, but most of the time Gamestop is literally raking you over the coals on these trades.    Then they turn around and sell them for 50+ dollars used.

Way more hassle free, almost to the point where it can be an impulse thing.

Pretty much this.  I realize I could probably make $20-30 more selling them on E-bay, but the hassle of doing so really isn't worth that to me.

Debating on State of Decay. May wait on a price drop since already have it on 360.

And hopefully Pinball Arcade will make it out this week so can start playing that on PC.

Think I might grab Guacamalee.  $7.49 is about the right price for it.

when done right you can get back nearly as much and it is easier. I prefer best buy for trades tend to get more. I got 45 for Madden 25 for instance.
