Yeah, apparently Sam's Club has really good deals sometimes. I got Dead Rising 2 (360) there for $18. Too bad I didn't like it (hated the time limit bullshit). But then I sold it on Half.com for $30, so I made some money off of it.  ;D

good deal! :D I remember that Sams also used to have Mario Kart for the wii for I think $42, and it's still going for $50 everywhere even though it's over 2 years old now... typical for a Nintendo flagship title of course.

I would like to get my hands on a few really old 360 titles, Quake 4 if memory serves was pretty good, and I remember
enjoying Dead rising. Both of them go used for 2 and 5 dollars or so each at Gamestop... respectively.

FEAR 3 going for $8.00 at Steam's Midweek Madness Sale.
Not as scary as the previous installments. But a fun shooter nonetheless.

Another bundle at http://www.indieroyale.com ! This one gives you PixelJunk Eden, Escape Goat, Noitu Love 2: Devolution, and Auditorium. Pay $7 and they give you 8-Bit Weapon's latest album, BITS with BYTE. (And 8-Bit Weapon happens to be my favorite Chiptunes band, and this album happens to be one I haven't picked up yet!)

Wow.

BestBuy's deal of the day: Inversion for the 360/Ps3 for $19.99. Instore and online price.

Inversion came out *last week* for the usual MSRP of $59.99.

Lollipop Chainsaw with all the lukewarm reviews is likely to drop its price like a rock soon, so I seriously recommend everybody hold off on buying it for a couple months.

Too bad I missed this, I want to get a PC copy now that I have a computer that can handle it. Oh well, I'm sure there will be sales when the Dawnguard DLC is released.

Since it's a Steam game and since the usual Steam summer sale is a few weeks off, I'd say just keep an eye out.

Are Gamefly downloads worth doing or is is best just to wait until they are on sale on Steam?
