Over on woot:

Lord of the Rings Online - Complete Digital Download for $9.99 - Includes Shadows of Angmar, Mines of Moria, and Siege of Mirkwood content as well as 30 days of free game time. (That's the base game, all expansions and 30 days of free play.)

Lotro is a great MMORPG for those who enjoy MMORPGs.

And adding to the recent releases of Master of Orion 1 & 2  and Master of Magic, this week Good Old Games brings us Master of Orion 3!

I'd give a link, but people might accidentally buy it then. That might be a mistake.

Oh, and for an actual bargain, Direct2drive's Spring sale is in it's final week.



Titan quest, Civ IV and Pirates are all steals for those prices.

Over on Direct2Drive: Rome Total War Gold Edition : $2.50

It's well worth $2.50 if you have any affinity for strategy games at all.

Direct2Drive also has Tropico for 15 bucks this weekend. If you loved the original Tropico, you'll love this one. If you've never played it, it's Sim City, only instead of a bustling city full of sim-citizens, you're dictator of a bananna republic. Tropico 2 was kind of a misstep, but I love Tropico 3.

I hate to point this out, but Steam also has Tropico 3 on sale, but for $7.50.

The sales are the result of the recently released expansion pack for the game, BTW, just in case you were unaware of the XP.

Okay, a number of deals:

Amazon- Alan Wake - $50 with a $10 Game Credit towards a future purchase

Also at Amazon- Game Downloads:
Penumbra Collection for $4
Sword of the Stars collection is $11
Tropico 3 is $15
Cryostasis is $7
Men of War for $7.50
Kings Bounty Armored princess for $15

Today's Steam Sega deals are:
Stormrise - $7.50
Space Siege - $5
Universe at War: Earth Assault - $5

And at Direct2Drive: Prince of Persia: Sands of Time - $1 Yes, that's a single dollar. It's obviously a promo for the movie, but it's a great game especially at a buck. (North Americans only, BTW.)

(Prince of Persia also has some cool Lego sets now,, but that's not a Video Game.)

Be aware, if you buy Sands of Time for the $1, you won't have an option for gamepad play. Be prepared to play with keyboard and mouse. Not really  the optimal way to play...

I'm guessing it's for today only, but there's a real bargain on Google's front page...the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man is today, and you can actually play the Google logo version for free!
One Man Band Riffs.  18 riffs, over 600 served, since 2009.

Steam's having a Bethesda Blowout this weekend to pimp preorders of Fallout: New Vegas. They're selling Game of the Year versions of Fallout 3 for $24.99, Oblivion for $8.50, and Morrowind for $5. Verry tempting...
