      OMG. Disciples 2 Gold for free? If you like strategy games and have never played it, get it. It's the best in the series. And it's free. If you don't like it, oh well.

        It's the best in the series, though I remember having to play it at a friends house before my family could afford a computer. I was so god damn disappointed with the third title after seven years in production.

        Oh, for goodness' sake. I checked after 10am Pacific, by which point even the laziest of sites have updated their deals, and there was nothing there. Thanks.

        Really stupid on EA's part to redirect all Latin American customers to their Spanish website and charge in Euros; they announced in their forums they would fix this since last July.
        One of the reasons I've never bothered with that store.

      Don't know if it sway people anymore, but Amazon's sale price for the digital version of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is $29.99 not $34.99 like it says above.

      [Wish I could say that buying the game will save Big Huge Games and 38 Studios from disappearing. I would like to have seen them mature and be as well known and admired as BioWare, Blizzard or Bethseda]

      You have the two versions of RO2 switched, the regular GOTY is 9.99 and the Digital Deluxe is 12.49

      Highly recommend THE BINDING OF ISSAC. It's funny, well done, a little blasphemous, and hard as hell (but in a good way). For only 1.99 it's a stupid-good buy.

      You somehow seem to have forgotten that "Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!" is also 50% off on Steam. A disappointing omission.

        I'm certain it wasn't when I wrote this, because I'm always careful to include that. A late entrant to Because We May, I'd wager. Cheers.
