    ^ DK1 on GOG is also the weaker DOS version, which isn't compatible with the Deeper Dungeons expansion and lacks a few extra tidbits.

    Once you buy a mp3 from Amazon it is saved to your Amazon cloud drive, which is 5gb (or 20gb if you've purchased a full album). You can re-download as many times as you like and upload your own files too.

    Anyone played Shoot Many Robots? It's 50% off on Steam and looks like a decent way to kill some time (and robots :p).

    This isn't the case in the UK, where Amazon haven't launched CloudDrive.

    Price doesn't much matter, it's either worth the time to play or it isn't. If it isn't worth playing at $50, it's not worth playing at $5.

    As others have mentioned there's the cloud drive thing now (in the US, anyway), but I'm not sure why that would be a problem anyway. I bought plenty of music from them pre-cloud drive, you just have to back up your downloads (and since you should be doing that with any digital purchase, it's not like it's a big deal).

    I didn't realize that. That's really too bad, it is a very good service.

    Apparently by setting the windows resolution to 800*600 before booting up the game allows Dungeon keeper 2 to work on 64bit windows 7.

    so i can whole heartedly suggest everyone plays this.

    Some twisted husks insist DK1 was better, well gog's version of DK1 was slightly hobbled (apparently its the dos version) so play 2 and set up some traps!

    Lunar Flight appears to be on sale for 1.75 at Desura and Steam, 75% off.

    Shovor (the developer) recently posted that he wasn't seeing the numbers he was hoping to make the project a longterm thing which is a shame, I guess this is the result. It's a brilliant game but the guy can't seem to catch a break, with the offer coming in the middle of Amazon's sales, the Ubisoft weekend and the sudden spike in Arma 2 interest it's getting drowned out.

    Anyway, grab yerselves a bargain!

    I like Delve Deeper a lot, only bad things are no online multiplayer and no saves mid-game. Get it together with the DLC.

    If anyone cares about Steamy stuffs Amazon has added the option for Steam keys for Civ IV complete and the Stronghold Collection.

    From Dust and Rayman Origins. Worth the Steam sale price? Any comparable games (so if I like those, I will like these)?

    From Dust is pretty unique - it's a puzzle/god game where you change the world and not the people on it - not my cuppa but it may float your boat.

    Rayman Origins is closest in spirit to early Sonic games - you are looking for the superfast, superaccurate way through every level but there are secrets and other things to find (best platformer I've played in a long, long time). Not massively taxing (it's no Super Meat Boy) but not that easy either...

    Well, if that's your point of view, I can understand that, although for me a very low price would make the pill of least-enjoyable-but-rather-short-parts-of-the-game easier to swallow. Btw, I think it was worth the full price (~30$) that I paid for it.
