Amazon's having a big pre-Holiday PC download sale. Among the highlights- Aliens Colonial Marines for $1.99. Come on. You can get two bucks worth of enjoyment out of it.

Aw, I was gonna get The Walking Dead: 400 Days (only $2.49), but it's DLC for the first season, not standalone and I don't have that on PC.

I never got around to buying Fallout Tactics, so this was a cool announcement. Couldn't believe it was totally free without strings! I felt guilty and started looking around for stuff to buy (which I'm sure was the intent of the giveaway) but I either had it or they didn't.

I was going to buy two old favorites of mine from long, long ago called Pax Imperia: Eminent Domain and Imperium Galactica 2: Alliances but they seem to have been removed from gog's catalog.

Pax Imperia was put out by THQ and since they went bankrupt recently and are still liquidating its assets, I can see why this is probably tied up. But why Imperium Galactica 2? Does anyone know a reputable source I can get these from? Amazon carries them but at "collector's prices" (read: overpriced gouging).


IG2 is actually available on the iPad right now. (shrug) That's the only place that offers a download of it right now.

I broke my "Never by from a marketplace seller" rule and picked it up for $20 at Amazon. Not Prime. Not even a deal. But I'd love to recapture that fun I had with this game.

Crusader Kings II, and all of it's DLC (except for Sons of Abraham) is currently 75% off. If you ever wanted to try it it, now's the time.

On Steam BTW.

Oh, and in PC Download land at Amazon,  Tomb Raider is $4.99 on Amazon and Lego Marvel is $11.99. Yes, both activate on Steam.

I'm up to $5.00 from selling Steam winter sale trading cards I got from voting. I want to see how much 'free money' I can get and the best game I can get on the last day of the sale. The first card I sold I got a little less than a dollar but now the card value has been plummeting to about $.25, but I'm hoping to round out about $7.

All of my annoyance! Tomb Raider's on sale for 10 bucks on Steam, and I have no cash in my account until Friday. >:(

It has been on sale at that price pretty frequently, if not from Steam then Amazon. If I see it I'll let you know.

Usually, the last day of the Steam sale is a "best of..." so you might be able to catch it again.  It will also probably pop up in one of the daily deals too.

Episode 1 of The Wolf Among Us is now free on Xbox 360. I've been exclusively playing games on my PC recently, but now I'm going to have to kick the kids off my Xbox. At least for the few hours it takes to go through this.

Still noting from two posts above: Tomb Raider PC Download $4.99 at Amazon  DRM used is Steam, so you get a Steam code anyway. Prices are good through the 26th. (It's $7.99 at Gamestop right now too. Same deal. You get a Steam Code.)


And Aliens Colonial Marines is still $1.99 in this sale too. Come on. Two bucks.  You'll get two bucks of enjoyment out of it.

On the off chance that Steam comes back up today, Left 4 Dead 2 is apparently free.
