    Space Pirates and Zombies is one of the weekend deals on Steam. 60% off (I think it was 75% off during the winter sale).
    I played it for about a hundred hours in a week, and am thinking of replaying it, so I would recommend it.

    I second that, it's a great game.

    Was hoping the weekend deal might have been prompted by the new update, but nope, its still in testing.

    Definitely worth the $4, excellent game.

    I would strongly recommend that anyone interested play the demo first. It's extremely arcadey, and despite the visual resemblance is definitely not Star Control/Starflight. That's not to say it is or isn't a good game, but it may be different than what you're expecting.

    Yes, its more "LASERS PEW PRE" than "Space epic"

    Victoria II is 5 pounds / 6 euro on Gamersgate; compare to 20 euro on Steam. I suspect this is a weekend deal, but I can't find the expiry date on it anywhere.

    I haven't tried Victoria II, but judging by the accumulated wisdom of the RPS forums it's less user-friendly than EU3, so I think I'll pass on it for now.

    Edit: Bah, apparently 6.78 euro - don't know why they weren't showing me the euro price last night.

    II: Shadows of Amn, Baldur’s Gate
    II: Throne of Bhaal, Icewind Dale,
    Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter,

    Luremaster, Icewind Dale II,
    Planescape: Torment & The Temple

    They're releasing a fairly excellent sounding expansion for it very soon.

    Space Trader - $2.50
    http://www.beamdog.com/products/space-trader
    An indie game from 2008 in Quake3 engine
    A mix of space trading and FPS

    Looks strangely compelling to me. Anyone played it?

    I received a mail-out saying there's a couple of deals coming up on Get Games Go starting at 6pm GMT today:

    Serious Sam 3 BFE 66% off = £9.99. 24 hours only. Which I think is the cheapest it's been.
    And yet another Deus Ex HR 70% off deal = £8.99. 48 hours only. Not sure if the DLC is also on sale, check back after 6 tonight.

    Edit: SS3 £10.19. DX:HR Missing Link is also 70% off.

    Looks like some people bought Serious Sam 3 on GetGamesGo and got 2nd Encounter instead. Oops :)

    That and the dollar/euro parity persuaded me to wait for a better deal.

    I got mine from GetGames for about that price several weeks ago; worked just fine.

    Vinraith: You mean A House Divided? I noticed that, and will be interested to see how it turns out.

    Yup. No idea how it'll turn out, but historically expansion packs have had a tendency to radically improve Paradox games.

    How do you guys feel about the DCS Blackhawk game on the deal of the day? All I have is a Thrustmaster Hotas. Is this sufficient to play? Or should I just wait to get Take On Helicopters when it goes on sale?

    I've been thinking about getting a Diablo-like recently? Is Sacred Gold any good?
