Tropico 3 Gold for $7.50 should be an insta-purchase for anyone interested in the city-building slash political managment slash Castro sim genre.

It's a great game, pretty deep, with some semi role playing elements. You do actually play as a leader who you can move around the map, he or she has stats and attributes, and you can RP as a brutal dictator who doesn't hold elections or just rigs them, or you can be pro-democracy, pro-capitalism or pro-communism, there are factions who you need to balance relations with… for $7.50 you can't go wrong and there is a lot to like for an RPG fan in the game.

And here I thought Steam ALWAYS makes a 1:1 conversion.

For the price, I was tempted to get Torchlight, even though I'm not a fan of Diablo-type games. But then I saw the video, and realized it is indeed a Diablo clone, saved myself $5

Too bad, on normal days you would have saved yourself $19.99.

Anyone else think this sale isn't actually that good? There's not many "good" games in it.

This sale is over with now. There's a new one now. King's Bounty Platinum edition is a good deal.

Despite all my rage.

that Lara Croft game looks kinda interesting too, tho it looks more like something that would be better played on console. For under ten bucks, i may try it out tho

I've been eying that one as well. Got a few more hours before I have to decide.

They should of done this viewpoint a long time ago. I stopped buying them after the second Lara Croft game.

Here are a few reviews for it:
http://kotaku.com/5617730/lara-croft…ta-wear-shades

http://www.bit-tech.net/gaming/xbox-…light-review/2
It isn't all perfect, though, and there are two flaws that can easily be levelled at the experience – specifically, it's repetitive at times and arguably over too quickly as well.
That right there is what bothers me.

I guess it's about 7 hours long. That is too short for me to buy it.

Despite all my rage.
