Steam's 'Treasure Hunt' promotion continues this weekend with four new objectives that involve Mafia II, Magic: The Gathering, and Droplitz. All three have been reduced for the event. Meanwhile, holiday sales are intensifying across the board. In addition to various game discounts, Direct2Drive offers 20% off any title via coupon code "HOHOHO". Impulse, GOG, Microsoft and EA have also cut 25 to 75% off a wide array of games, including Sins of a Solar Empire, Battlefield 2: Complete Collection, Crysis Warhead and Medal of Honor.
I did a couple of weeks ago. If I had waited, I could have saved a whole $2.50! Having said that, the game gives me headaches. While it looks pretty, running makes your view zoom like in Gears of War and feels like you have concrete blocks attached to your feet. Still, for $5, go for it!
Also does anyone know the region limitations on the EA sales? I'm in Australia, and I can't find anything on special. I tried the provided link, and changed AU to US in the address to no avail. Don't know what else I can try apart from proxy..
The 20% off can be applied to the Witcher 2 pre-order to make the subtotal $36 on D2D. I think for a game of W2 caliber, being available for sub-$40 already (hasn't been released) is a great deal. The 20% off can also be used on Fallout 3 GOTY to get it for $24; I hope steam beats that price for their Winter sale though. Also, it is the first time I have seen Darksiders for sale, though I will most likely not buy it until the 2011 Steam summer sale when it should be $10 (hopefully).
