Amazon is doing "Video Games" as their gold box deals today. Sometimes these are good deals, other times not, and you can't tell what's coming up in the next two hour slot until it arrives. But it might pay off to check there every so often today.

Surprised that noone has mentioned King's Bounty: Armored Princess for $6.24 at Steam.

It would seem like they have actually released a retail edition of this game over here as well. I'm surprised that they decided to do this, because the game is (as far as I know, I don't own it (yet)) a rather small game. I guess they wanted to capitalize a bit on the fact that the game got such great reviews, and a lot of people still stick to their brick & mortar stores rather than digital distribution.

I already had five of the six games I purchased.

Funny that you purchased M&M 6&7… I purchased 8&9.

Yeah, GoG is just awesome. I primarily (re)purchased them all to get the soundtracks and futureproof any potential Windows 7 installs.

The new Humble Bundle is now out. And yes, the leaked information was correct.

Jamestown is one of its genre's all time greatest, so if you don't have this bundle yet, then get it!

Gamersgate has a sale with a bunch of games (Dragon Age 2:$12, Witcher 2 digital premium $19.98, etc). I wonder if DA2 is ok at $12. I was waiting for the 'ultimate edition' for $15 or so that will eventually come around

Even at 12 bucks, I think you'd feel ripped off by DA2. It's just that bad! I guess if you're really desperate for a game, it might be ok

Indie bundles are popping up everywhere. You can hardly misstype a URL without getting one these days.

Little big bunch is the latest of the lot.
This one contains:
Frozen Synapse
Explodemon
Serious Sam: Double D
New Star Soccer 5 (what we Europeans like to call football, because you actually use your feet more than your hands)
Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee (is this even indie?)

Their website is currently down though.

Have you tried M&M9? I have 1-8, so I'm very tempted to complete my collection, but I am hesitant because of it's reputation. Is it really as bad as people say?

It has bad game-breaking bugs that are patched out
It barely resembles any Might and Magic game. Very unfinished. I can't recommend it.

Most M&M fans agree that IX was a big step back from VI-VIII, but you don't have much to lose when you're only paying $2.99.

I haven't tried the GOG version yet, but it already has the community patch installed, so it should be mostly bug-free.

I already had M&M 6-9 on CD from purchasing the M&M Platinum Edition a few years back, but they're a pain to get running on Windows 7 64 bit. I purchased the GOG versions just for the Windows 7 compatibility.

Yeah, that's true…I grabbed it just now…along with 8 other games (damn these sales)! I've always been more of a M&M3-5 fan, so maybe it won't be such a step back for me.

The big steam sale has started… and crashed the steam servers. At least I got 75% off on a valve product as a "gift".

Are they so stupid as not to have learned from their previous mistakes, or is this a purposeful case of false advertising for a bait and switch to buy later when the sale is over?
