Thinking I'm gonna finally pick up 'Mass Effect 1' for 10 bucks.. otherwise, not tempted by anything else. Want to play 'Dead Rising 2' and 'Darksiders', but on my PS3.

Interested in a number of those (Blur, Blood Bowl, and Risen), but vowed I wasn't going to buy anything over $10 during this sale.  I might give Darksiders another shot though.  I didn't care for it much on 360, but think that had lots to do with being distracted with other titles at the time.

Darksiders is one of the best THQ published titles that I've played.

Nothing for me today.

Picked up Bioshock 2, Just Cause 2, and Recettear so far on their good sale days.  Still under $25 so far.  smile

When it came out it was a rough port, not sure if they patched it or not.

Whoah, simulation day today - Silent Hunter 3,4, 5, Wings of Prey, Op FP Dragon Rising all for less than $10! slywink I'm picking up Wings of Prey for my son's PC  and I'm getting 2 copies of one of the Silent Hunters.

Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising for $3 ?   Was this a really bad game?

I played it tag team on a friends PS3 and no it's not that bad a game and IMO somewhat underrated. I think Codemaster got some thumbs down on it because they tried to straddle the middle ground between hardcore simulation-shooter like the original Ops Flashpoint and easier tactical shooters like GRAW and BIA. It's still more challenging game than those latter 2. Some weren't very impressed with the AI, but I personally don't think it's as bad as a number of reviewers made out. The other problem is that it really didn't best what Bohemia Interactive (original OPS FP dev studio) came up with for ARMA II - the latter is just a better game all around. If you like difficult shooters, it's definitely worth $3.

I liked OF: Dragon Rising... Even the mission editor is worth the $3 to practice/set up different scenarios.  It's easy to use, test, and make adjustments to.

it wouldn't surprise me if one of the wankers in my squad was jumping up and done behind me while I was hoping the enemy would veer away.  Note to self:  squad needs more floggings.

Is there any chance Divinity 2 will go on sale??  And which one do i want, Divinity 2 Ego Draconis or The Dragon Knight Saga?  I see the Dragon Knight Saga is 33% off, but can it also go on sale for these 1 day sales?

You want The Dragon Knight Saga.  and yes, anything can go on sale during the daily sales.  I bought ME2 on Monday for 15 bucks, and today it's only 10.  luckily it was only a 5 buck drop, so I'm not annoyed, but another example is The Grue buying Railworks 2 for 20 bucks, only to have it drop to 6 a couple of days later.

waiting could hurt less in the long run (plus buckeye fans already got kicked around today with those suspensions).

You won't find a bigger Buckeye fan than me but they deserve to not play another game for what they sold, those items should have meant pride in owning but I guess not.  Anyways i guess I can wait to see what happens with the sales, how long is the 33% off going to last?

My updated haul:

Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box $5
The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom - $0.49
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising - $3

Subtotal: $8.49

At the end of the sale I will probably get one big purchase. Either Fallout New Vegas or Dragon Age Ultimate Edition for $37.

In agreement here.  There has been a few that piqued my interest but on a whole not nearly as good as in the past.  The large packs are great deals but not being able to gift the duplicates make them useless for me.

The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom - $0.49

Anyone who doesn't have this game should buy it. At that price it is a steal. Normally I don't like these types of logic games, but this one has been entertaining.

Yeah, I bought it the other day and played it last night.  Very cool game that uses the recording mechanic from the latest Ratchet and Clank game as the basis for its puzzles.  The music and art style are wonderful.
