I mentioned this on my site, but I thought I should remind people here.  A little while back JoWood put out a press release (GT posted it Here).  It's basically an American release of four complete games (including expansions).  They're all $20 a piece and there's some great gaming there.  I know Gogamer has them (GT Link).   Here are the games:

Quote
SpellForce Platinum – SpellForce Platinum features three games in one box – SpellForce Gold Edition, which includes The Order of the Dawn and Breath of Winter, plus the expansion pack Shadow of the Phoenix.  In SpellForce’s single-player action, players will enjoy a unique mixture of RTS and RPG elements that offer the player exciting gaming challenges through a persistent game world with a continuous, gripping storyline and numerous sub-quests.  While under SpellForce’s spell, player will encounter more than 150 new items and 27 powerful set items (some of which can be modified by the player).  The game offers multiplayer action where up to three gamers can play cooperatively over a LAN.
 
Gothic II Gold – Gothic II Gold includes the original game plus its expansion pack, Gothic II Night of the Raven.  In this popular RPG of action and adventure, players experience a storyline of intrigue and mystery as they wander through massive fully 3D lush environments, where players may encounter more than 500 characters.   With more than 50 magical artifacts, such as rings, amulets and belts; 50 magic spells to cast; and 150 powerful weapons to wield, players will have more than enough power to take on Evil.
 
Silent Storm Gold – Silent Storm Gold includes the original game plus its expansion pack.  This game is a true 3D tactical turn-based RPG set against the backdrop of WWII.   In order to win, players will need to successfully complete their missions through two non-linear campaigns while fighting on former battlefields and battling a secret terror organization. As a bonus, this Gold pack includes new mission goals, such as infiltration of enemy buildings, destruction of enemy establishments and assassinations. With an arsenal of more than 75 authentic weapons from WWII, players will have the gun power and blade power to achieve their goals.
 
The Guild Gold – The Guild Gold includes the original game plus its expansion pack.  In Guild, players jump into an authentic simulation of life in the middle ages.  In this edition, not only will players get to experience the original game, but they will also have three new ranks/titles to choose among, five new offices and more privileges.  Players will also enjoy the three new levels, three new locations such as the cannon tower and the Emperors Town of Nuremberg which is 3 times larger then previous towns.
Those could make a great small gift or stocking stuffer.

I always wanted to play Spellforce.  Maybe I will for $20.
Thanks for the info, Hrothgar!

Actually, it's Aspyr Media that's publishing them here.  So basically, you'd be supporting the idea that American publishers should take chances on hard to find European titles.  You'd also be supporting the developers.  But yes, JoWood will get some money out of the deal.
