    Last year's was way better. There were hits for $5. This is kinda disappointing

    Ok please update BadCompany 2 price, they made a mistake making the core price at $20 when it was $30 before, I checked the price with discount from work at $20 for a $6.8 final and when I got home they fixed it back to $30 for a final $10,1 =(

    Not entirely sure what you're saying Kibaruk, but I still see BC2 as $6.79.

    I'm hoping nice deep discount on Assassin's Creed 2 and Dragon Age Origins.

    the question is do we buy now or wait and see if our wanted games will go on a deeper discount :)
     
  15. Awesome! My only rule: Only buy 66%+ deals.

    I'm gonna guess that since they are saying 1000+ games will be on-sale, I doubt the 'daily deals' will be repeated at a lower price.

    This is so awesome. Everyone, I'm buying LFD2, BFBC2, & Epic Pack, so get those as well so there will be more people for me to play online. ^^ Also getting Oblivion, best offline game I ever played and you need the original executable to enable AA, hence my purchase.

    I see in today's sale that they have "Defense Grid: The Awakening" for a whopping $2.00. It's an addicting tower defense game with great graphics and music. It'll be the best $2.00 game you ever bought - got a 9.4 user rating score on Metacritic.

    Got myself BFBC2 and the Deus Ex twinpack. :)

    Will likely get more as I go along, but thank you to Dustin for reminding me about BFBC2! :D

    Gotta say I'm a tad peeved I needed to register with EA in order to even start BFBC2 though. :haha:

    EDIT: Add the Witcher: Enhanced Edition, and Bioshock.
