More about valve launches steam trading cards
  1. hmm interesting concept.
  2. what we need is the ability to trade steam credits with games/gifts, not these.
  3. what, hats in TF2 aren't enough?
    Dimes to dollars they'll run this for a while and then start "charging" for "expansion packs" that contain rare cards at like 10 bucks a pop.
    Gayben needs money to keep PC gaming alive. . . well that and sandwiches I guess.
  4. This is super awesome, I'm waiting for my invite.

    Well, somehow they need to find the money to pay for the Heavy's minigun bullets. I heard it costs $400,000 to fire it for 12 seconds. And don't get me started on the Sandvich's...
  6. Great. Another thing to make my OCD self waste my life over.
  7. i like the idea of the cards. I personally wont be scavenging around for any cards, but I see the potential in it becoming a hobby for some people. I wonder what cupons and DLCs can be obtained. surely valve is gonna troll non-card traders some day with an epic deal only users with full sets can buy. seems interesting enough.

    see, i wish i can agree with you, but i can't.

    any of those features don't REQUIRE YOU TO PLAY THE GAMES THEY SELL. they are simply an additional thing gamers can do to play and have fun. it's a little predatory on the people that don't know how to manage their money or their time of course, but it doesn't even give them a lead! the people themselves have created the hat economy, so blame them and not newell.

    i welcome any idea they bring to the table as long as it's not required to have fun
  9. This has the potential to be really big. Get free games for just playing games? Sign me up!
  10. Great. Another thing to make my OCD self waste my life over.
  11. HAt economy must be stagnating for this to be a thing

  13. The only question I have is does this get us closer to HL3? No....well then I would rather sit around and smell my own farts. Seriously starting to lose my patience on this one.
  14. The in-progress badges got updated so now you only see a set of cards as in progress if you have at least one. It's nice not having unfinished badges because I sold some cards from one game to make a full set for another.
