At Best Buy this week- Buy Two Games get a third free. That's good for all games on all modern platforms.

Hey! See the above? Amazon price matched. A limited selection of games, but still several hundred worth.

Humble Indie Bundle 3!

http://www.humblebundle.com/

The games include Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, and And Yet It Moves. You choose what to pay (value of these five games is over $50), and to whom you pay: the developers, Child's Play, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Pay as much as you want or as little as you want, or be a dick and pirate them because the games come DRM-free.

Need more of a reason to pick this up? Okay. One, they've added Steel Storm: Retribution to the base pack. Two- pay more than the average contribution and they'll toss in Humble Bundle #2 as well. That includes:
    Braid
    Cortex Command
    Machinarium
    Osmos
    Revenge of the Titans

Aug 5 Update:
And, to add to the fun, now you also get free Minecraft playing time and one more game: Atom Zombie Smasher.

D'oh! Waited 2 whole months and finally decided, "OK. It's not going on sale any time soon." Ah well. Still worth it. And TOTALLY worth the $3.98. Get it if you don't have it!

Don't know whether it's a deal or a mistake, but when you try to purchase the Hector: Badge of Carnage full series, the front page has it listed as 25% off - $15, but if you go to the game page, it lists it as 75% off, $5.

So I just bought the complete Hector for $5.

Okay,

Dragon Age II for the PC - $11.95 at Direct2Drive.
No, you can't register it on Steam. Ea and Valve are not friendly at the moment. But you can register it with EA's Origin service and be able to download it from them too.

At Amazon - Deus Ex Human revolution - $34.99 with tactical DLC for the PC Download.

More! At Gamersgate - Homefront - $14.99, Civ V for $16.99 (Im hates it, so it must be good!)

So, still on the Dragon Age thing...

DA2 is $11.99 at Impulse (a Gamestop company) now. So is the Ultimate Edition of Dragon Age. Want them both? $17.99 for the pair.

Ooh . . . if only I had $17.99. I have them for the 360, but I wouldn't mind having them on the PC too.
