They had The Witcher up for €0.99 for a little bit (94% discount). Now it went back to €3.99 like it was last time. I already thought it was weird to do a second chance sale for less than the original sale price.

They were giving themselves a second chance to make more money per copy.

Flatout 1 was crossplatform with the Xbox, whereas 2 was exclusive to the PC. That allowed Bugbear to update it with  quite a few things beyond the capabilities of the Xbox - graphics are quite a bit better. 

excuse the correction, but the first two FlatOuts *were* available on PS2 and Xbox.

Nothing that catches my fancy..

Mirror's Edge
Machinarium
Victoria II
SW: Knights Of The Old Republic
EVE Online: Incursion
Serious Sam HD Gold edition
Cities XL 2011
Hawkx 2
Killing Floor


I love city builders.. but 20 bucks for Cities XL is still too much.

Yep, it said the same thing for me.. but right now they changed it. Still, I hardly played the first one, so I'm gonna take a pass.

I found it fun; I played it on easy because combat got annoying on regular, but the running bits were a blast.

I was a huge fan of the original, but NWN2 never grabbed me for some reason.  Started it three times, and each time I simply got bored about 4-5 hours in and quit.  The game engine is fine and it plays well, the campaign was simply...dull. 

I'd actually like to give it another go sometime (I've heard it picks up after the 6 hour mark), but the thought of playing through those first 4-5 hours for a 4th time is a dealbreaker.

Picked up Machinarium and NWN 2.  I bought NWN2 on Direct 2 drive awhile back but never played it but it didn't have the expansions.  I think I've bought something everyday and sometimes games that I have on the
consoles.   Help me.....

I'm not sure I finished NWN2. I know I played it. I finished the first game too. Did NWN2 have an ad on where you started in a cave then went to a town and had to help defend it against animals? If so I finished the game but not that ad on. I don't think I finished NWN2 though, argh.

I am definitely buying KOTOR for less than $3 wow. Saves me having to bother with disks and patches this way.  

EDIT..DOH!!! It's a good thing Steam tells me I already own something and wont let me buy it again for myself. Didn't realize I own KOTOR on Steam lol.

Contemplating on getting Cities XL 2011. At $20 it's an "I'll think about it", if it was $10 or lower then it would've been an instant buy for me.

Agreed. I went to click it and then noticed the price and skipped it.

Someone over at OO mentioned that Hinterland was only $2.50.  I've always wanted to give that one a try, and it has tempted me at $10-15 before.  For $2.50?  Sold!

It's sorta meh, nothing like Defense Grid.  You build robots and fight other robots.  You have to upgrade them and what really sucks is you start out with 0 money and the pc starts off with thousands...  Kinda lame

Woo hoo...Doom Complete for $8.74.  My patience paid off, and now I can finally give The Dark Mod a try.

Also in for SimCity 4 for $5 (bought this ages ago when it first came out, but my system wouldn't run it.  been wanting to try it again ever since.) and probably Rush for $1.69.
