Darklands is on GoodOldGames! Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

Sorry. Darklands was a RPG from Microprose in the early 90s set in Medieval Germany. It's one of the great unsung games in RPG history. (It also had some pretty nasty bugs which hopefully have been patched since 1992. Patching in those days was a bit cumbersome, due to the lack of the interwebz.)


Doctor Who?

I already posted this one another thread but I guess it really belongs here.

Buy Batman: Arkham City at Wal mart and they are tossing in a free copy of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

This isn't exactly a bargain, but "9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors" is currently available on Amazon for twenty-five dollars. I'm posting it here because the game is a few years old and I think it's going out of print. I've had great difficulty finding it in the past and it was more expensive. Amazon didn't even have it when I looked previously. Anyway, I've already raved about the game in various threads so I'll spare you my rabid fawning and just say it's worth every penny at this price and it's the best game in the DS's already-stellar game library.

Under the 999 plan, your taxes will be based on your income's digital root.

Now YOU'RE the one who has to look on wikipedia to get the joke! What now, Darth Geek?!

the 999 plan is related to video games in another way. The plan calls for nine percent corporate tax rate, a nine percent income tax rate and a national sales tax of nine percent. Those are the exact same rates used by 2004's Sim City 4 for industrial, residential and commercial taxes

This is going to turn into a "The Number 23" type situation, isn't it?

You mean, a shitty movie? Well most video game movies are bad anyway, right?

Amazon's having an Un-BOO-lievable Halloween sale (rolls eyes). The name sucks, but the prices are good.

Dead Island >> $39.99
Saw II >> $5.99 (Yes, that's a game)
Bioshock 2 >> $5.99
Rock of the Dead >> $8.99

Lots more.

Bioshock 2 for 5.99? DAYUM! Seems like only yesterday it cost 10 times as much...

Oooh. Saint's Row the Third- $39.99 at Amazon. This is for the PC download version, but it's also $10 below the Steam price.

Remember our frequent guest, the Humble Indie Bundle? Well, a cousin just appeared : The Indie Royale Bundle.
http://www.indieroyale.com/

There's no charity involved here, you're just buying games from the developers. Here's the current set:
    A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda | by Extend Interactive available on: windows, desura, steam
    Gemini Rue | by Wadjet Eye Games available on: windows, desura
    Sanctum | by Coffee Stain Studios available on: windows, steam
    Nimbus | by Noumenon Games available on: windows, desura, steam

BONUS DLC OFFER: For every 10,000 bundles sold, a single DLC for Sanctum will be made available in all bundles.

How this works is fairly simple. the bundle started at $2.00 and when enough people buy a bundle, it goes up in price. If you pay more than the minimum, the price will go down. Easy, huh? Right now, the deal started earlier today and the current price is $2.97. So, it pays to be an early adopter.

(And I really like Sanctum. It's a great game that I bought on Steam during their summer sale and it's a fun FPS/Tower game.)

I saw the news on Joystiq and bought it if only just for Gemini Rue, which looks like a cool Beneath a Steel Sky meets Blade Runner kind of adventure game.

I also bought the currently on sale Back to the Future Telltale series on Steam, which is at something like $10 for the whole thing.
