      Thank you for including Winter Voices in the Steam list. It's a pretty unassuming, oft-overlooked little game that is genuinely cool.

        I picked it up a while back but haven't gotten around to playing it :(

        Looked kind of interesting. Grabbed the latest add on for it since it was only $2.50

          It's essentially an RPG, but the stats you level are psychological elements and the enemies are things like memories and doubts. I love the concept, though the strong Scandinavian flavor to the dialogue throws me off sometimes.

            That looks really awesome. Thanks for highlighting it; I would have missed it otherwise.

      I'm glad D2D is still going strong, I've been having issues lately with Steam even working, and you love Steam when it works, but when you can't launch it or you're unconnected, you're reminded of how much it sucks that Valve has now locked down all of your games so you have to be able to launch Steam before you can even play them.

      Beamdog now has a sales page: http://www.beamdog.com/sales

      Same prices on Victoria 1 complete & 2 as GamersGate. 50-75% off a bunch of other stuff, including Shadowgrounds Survivor.

      I have a blog (dddeals.blogspot.com) where I post discounts as I find them.

      Why is Impulse bundling Divinity 2: Eco Draconis when Dragon Knight Saga is a completely remastered version? =/

      It's not like they have to get rid of physical copies sitting on a shelf.
