But then again, for such price, lower than common ME overpowered itempack DLC… Can't skip it. Bought.

EDIT:
On GMG there is some odd looking game that's currently very cheap:
http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/hr/e…pells-of-gold/

Anyone played that one?
I actually asked about that game a while ago. Couchpotato had this to say about it:
A generic old fantasy rpg. You trade goods on different worlds and uncover a sinister plot. Not bad but nothing great.
It has a user score of 3.2 on Gamer's Gate and "professional" reviewers who actually bothered with reviewing it gave it a rather low score as well as seen here

A pity. Okay I'll skip it.

But there is another odd thing. Dark is available as a preorder.

On Steam it's 23,8€.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/225360/

On GMG it's 38.25€
http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/hr/e…s/action/dark/

The same price of 38.2 is on GG:

WTF?!

Must be some regional issues. For me it shows up as 38.24€ on steam & $33.99 on GMG. So not only is the GMG in USD, but 38.24>33.99. Also, that is Wargame Airland Battle that you linked to on GG. Dark shows up as 38.2€.

Sorry, there's the proper link on GG:
http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-DARKG/dark

And it's still shown on that juicy price on my side on Steam…
I'm not sure should I buy it now or wait till they correct it. If it'll be corrected anyway.

What region do you live in? EU is split into two (possibly 3?) different price zones. Sources seem to contradict each other in regards to this, as apparently Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania have had different prices at some points.


*edit* It would seem like the lower EU zone 2 price for Dark is intentional.

I'm in Croatia. So… Dunno if it's zone 2, I mean, where do I see what different zones are there?

There is nothing official from valve out there, but according to this site the zones are:
Zone 1:
Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Netherlands, Sweden or Switzerland.
Zone 2:
Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain or the Vatican City

though that is from 09, and is apparently not quite up to date. Also, those are the zones that valve use for their games, publishers are free to pick other zones for their pricing.

*edit* this one might be a bit more up to date.
Region 1:
Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland

Region 2:
Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Vatican City



Why is Norway in the cheaper zone? It makes no sense to me…

Tempting. Now that I have a Win 7 machine, my only excuse for not buying is my backlog…

I wouldn't jumped on it at all… I'm already regged on too many online shops and there is no way I'll go reg on gamefly just because of one game.

The weekly sale at Humble Bundle features the entire Serious Sam series. It's an incredible deal if you like old-school shooters.

SimCity all DLC is 50% off this weekend on Origin.
Everyone rejoice!
And I'm still not buying it.

Meanwhile on GG, NWN complete is 70% off, means only 7.5€:
http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-DDNWNC/…ights-complete
It's not DRM free.

On Steam Civilization and DLC/addons are also on sale, different percents.

Not only for sale, but you can play Civ 5 for free this weekend on Steam (at least in the USA). Or, if you would rather give your brain a rest, Saints Row: The Third is also free this weekend.

Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 is just $7.50, too. GOG is still charging $20 for that game.

Yea well… I think we all got Civ5 already for free as X-Com preorder bonus that's why I didn't mention it.

I just preordered EU4 in GreenManGaming, they give you a choice of $8 cashback or $12 credit (for the deluxe preorder, $7/$10 for the normal preorder). I chose the credit and then preordered another game that had a 25% discount with the credit
