Dead Island is worth $10, but I wish I hadn't paid more than that.

As long as your expectations aren't too high, you should get some enjoyment from it. Just don't expect any degree of realism, and be aware that the PC port has a very "consolish" look and feel.

Major sale over at Origin. Most games (including recent releases such as Kingdoms of Amalur and Syndicate, but not ME3) are 50% off:

Same here… I wonder if you have to be logged in to see the discount. Not that I would purchase KoA anyways.

That's actually the first time I've even looked at Origin. I wasn't aware they sell console titles there as well.

It shows up as 250sek for me (that is half the regular price, 500sek). Granted, the Swedish Origin site is horribly poorly localized & buggy, so it would not surprise me if they have done something wrong here.

It is the evil tool of EA designed to kill off used games and monetize you into oblivion …

No KoA discount for me … even when logged in.

It would seem like people in the US & Canada won't get this discount. People in south/central America & Europe do get the discount.

Another 75% off Atari sale over at Gamer's Gate

http://se.gamersgate.com/games?prio=…ce&q=atariweek

Needless to say, BG/II, IWD/II, NWN/2 + expansions are dirt cheap.

Awesome sale - have to see what I need from that list …

That is just WAY out of whack … the game, aside from not really reaching the 'good' level in the site title, is regularly on sale for <$5 … so $5.99 might work but at $10 it is a definite skip.

There actually is a game called "DLC Quest" ?

Yep. Here is the (intentionally?) bad trailer for the game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esDL8y5XeHM

That's a great deal. I paid $30 for Hard Reset when it was released, and I wasn't disappointed. If you like fast-paced shooters in the style of Serious Sam, you can't go wrong with it.

I'm very surprised it's being included in that bundle, and I'm slightly annoyed that people are getting it for that cheap.

23 kronor

Anyway, that is a great deal. Victoria 2 is also cheap, and highly recommended.
