I bought it, even though by the time I finally play the first two it'll probably be $20.

Hopefully the DLC will be cheaper by the time I get around to it. Or Steam just has a special sale.

DMC:Devil May Cry currently 40% off on Steam (through June 3rd). Still trying to decide whether to try it.

EA ditches online passes!

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/124481-EA-Ditches-Online-Pass-Fees-For-Select-Xbox-360-Titles-UPDATE

https://help.ea.com/article/online-pass-has-been-discontinued

The Stone Prisoner, here I come!

(Personal) UDPDATE: Just saw that Kingdoms of Amalur is $20 on XBL games on demand. Which means that without an online pass, you get the full game for a lot less than the $40 it sells for used at GameStop.

For anyone who hasn't played The Walking Dead game from Telltale, now is the time to get it through the Humble Bundle Weekly Sale: http://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

Just pay more than the average (right now it's $4.11) and you'll unlock the game, as well as many others. Here's an article I wrote on it if anyone's concerned about a Walking Dead game. It's one of the finest video games I've ever played, and it truly moved me in a way that few movies, television shows or games do: http://evantvmoviegames.tumblr.com/post/40100793575/thewalkingdeadgame

Ooh, I'll second that recommendation for The Walking Dead. Definitely worth $5. Especially if you happen to like point-and-click adventure games with the other titles offered (and don't already have them).

Found out a game, Expeditions: Conquistador, is on sale at Steam. I was wondering if anyone else owned it and what their review of it is. I love games like Civilization and this seems right up that alley.

It's a free Civ V weekend on Steam! For the 2 people here who don't own it, now's your chance to play it! (Saints Row 3 is also free this weekend too.)

In other news, Amazon just opened their Indie Games shop, with lots of deals and discounts on smaller titles and a number of games that aren't on Steam. But, since folks have an irrational belief that "all my games must be on Steam", here's the standout deal for you.  The Oh so Fine and Dandy bundle for $9.99, which includes Costume Quest, The Cave, Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Stacking, and Iron Brigade. Given that both Brutal Legend and The Cave cost more than that , you might want to jump on this deal.

And now it's free for XBL Gold members. Even though I've played it already, I snagged it for an eventual replay.

I already own Psychonauts and Brutal Legend, but I'll go ahead and buy Oh so Fine and Dandy anyway. I've heard The Cave is good, and y'know, Double Fine can do (almost) no wrong.

I have a Hotline Miami code to giveaway. It's a super fun game. I'm going to say the first person to ask for it with an account older than three months (just to avoid scammers).

A steam code?  Been interested in that game for a while, but I was waiting for another sale.  I'd be very grateful if no one has snatched it already.
