Although it's not discounted, we thought it'd be worth mentioning that Mafia II launched on Tuesday and it's readily available through a number of major distribution firms. Nvidia also just wrote to us saying that any graphics card equipped with a GTX 465 GPU or higher gets a Mafia 2 digital download for free starting this week. Be sure to keep an eye out for our forthcoming performance review on the game, including extensive PhysX testing.
Civilization V is knocking on the door...and no, it's not going to be cheap...it's the usual 50 bucks release offer...
I can imagine how much for a "Collector's Edition", maybe something similar to the 99 dollars StarCraft II package.
In addition, if you buy Civilization IV now, you're going to spend roughly 6 months playing to "end" the game (actually, CIV does not have an end, there's an evolution of your civilization!) before start playing Civilization V, which I believe is going to make you spend double of time to master it.
I'd rather wait Civilization V, despite of this tempting offer for CIV.

I like how often Civ4 Complete is being discounted on all the big digital distributors. I've managed to get quite a few buddies hooked up, and it's always a blast to comp stomp.
Direct2Drive has a cool deal, where if you buy a game that's $49.95 or up, you can save 10 bucks by using the Coupon Code 'SchoolSucks.' It works with pre-orders too, so if you want to nab Civ5 or Fallout: New Vegas for 39.95, here's an opportunity!
