There are a couple of pretty sweet pre-order deals through an online distributor I've never heard of until the last couple of days:

Green Man Gaming

Deus Ex: Revolution for $42.49. Use coupon code: 20SUM-MERSA-VINGS and it knocks the price down to $27.16.

Dead Island for $42.95. Use coupon code: SUNNY-SAVER-20PEC and it knocks the price down to $33.96

Wow, I've never heard of this site before. Those deals look pretty good. Especially Deus Ex. Although I already pre-ordered it, I'll cancel that pre-order and get it on that site. One question though, do you download the actual installation files, or do they require some sort of game manager like Steam?

I might be old-school, but I prefer downloading the whole game and installing it myself...

I also read on the site they have some patented technology that allows their customers trade already <i>digitally downloaded</i> games for credits which they can use to purchase other games?! That's like the best idea you'd figure should have been implemented on every online store by now. I have plenty of games I already finished and wish to trade.

It takes a download client similar to what D2D uses called "Capsule." Seems to work fine. This is a legit company. Here's the Wikipedia on them:
