    What about "Kill Everyone" and "Spare (Almost) Everyone" Thorton?
    Oh. Crap.

    Well, angry Thorton disliked people to the point of sadism. His story was one of death and disarray since kindergarten. He did love SIE, though, before he killed her for being weak and letting herself get captured. Affection junkie Thorton wanted hugs, not blood. He was pretty much the [INSERT SUPERSTAR OF CHOICE] of empathy. So yeah, I've done those. Next playthrough will be intentionally unlikable Thorton. If there's another playthrough after that, I'll probably go for evil puppetmaster Thorton, who gets everyone to trust him and then becomes backstabber Mikey.

    EDIT: Also, how does one get those fancy invisible spoiler thingies?

    EDIT 2: Wohoo! Thank you Jesus! But now i feel a bit stupid for not figuring it out...

    Highlight the text you want to hide and change its colour to white.

    Amazon and GMG are offering Civ V for a preorder of XCOM. But GMG will give you the key at the same time as XCOM release.

    Also on Amazon:

    I have. It's quite fun, although it's a little sparse on features at the moment. Once I get myself set up properly, which does take a while and is enjoyable, there's not much variation in what I end up doing, but that's probably a lack of imagination on my part as I tend to end up in much the same position when playing Dwarf Fortress.

    There's usually an update or a patch every week and if any game-breaking bugs are introduced they're usually fixed within a few hours of being reported. The creator seems quite involved on the forums listening to feedback and informing users about future features which I like.

    THQ sale on Steam. Darksiders 2 much cheaper in the UK than anywhere else. The season pass is 50% off before any of its DLC is released lol

    I'm assuming that DSII price is a mistake (65% not 50%) so get in there SHARPISH - unless you think it will have a 75% off 'day' over the weekend!?!?

    Which the blurb suggests AREN'T included with the Season Pass!?!?

    Updated as I've read-up on this and now have a MASSIVE headache but basically - no, they're not included in the Season Pass...

    Argul's Tomb is - as far as I can tell - "endgame" content which was 'free' if you pre-ordered or got the LE version

    Death Rides was only 'free' if you bought straight from THQ but it's content is parallel to the story and so worth having from the off (unless backtracking is your cuppa)

    The stuff in the Season Pass doesn't exist yet so who knows...

    Head melted...

    p.s. best advice I read - buy the game and play it upto at least the Forgelands - you should know if you like it enough to spend more on it by then and if you do, buy 'Death Rides'.

    The rest you can leave until you've done the game, pretty much - it will be cheap again one day and all that!?!?

    GOG has 30 old Activision games 60 % off. I'm wondering whether Vampire: the Masquerade - Redemption is anywhere near as good as Bloodlines? Also, Legend of Grimrock is reduced as well.

    Redemption is a good action RPG although nowhere near as good as Bloodlines.

    Also highly recommended from the pack for fun autumn evenings are
    Arcanum
    Betrayal at Krondor

    Yeah, I was willing to pay about $15 for it, so I'm definitely going to grab a copy. I assume it activates on Steam?

    Yoink! Thanks for the heads up.

    Yes, it is a Steamworks game so it activates on Steam.

    That is ... really not that bad a deal. Do GF require you to install their (presumably) crappy client or can you just grab the key and head off in the direction of this steamy competitor?

    Thanks, Revisor, ordered and downloading!
    @Jellyfish GameFly emailed me a keycode, and I used it to install the game on Steam. No GF client required.

    The gf client is pretty much impulse but eats more ram. It's not needed to launch the games, and steamworks games don't need it obviously.
