Jericho is awesome except for the QTEs and some difficulty spikes. It's really fucking weird and hard to get into but it's worth it. It's one of the most atmospheric games ever.
As for Legendary, I bought it because I was always curious about it.

Is Gothic 3 any good? I've never played any of them. They're five Americanos on GamersGate.

It's a pretty unusual series as far as RPGs are concerned, the combat system demands skill and the world has no enemy scaling, something that is bemoaned in modern games like The Elder Scrolls and the fantasy elements are dialed down, no elfs, dwarfs, etc..
I highly recommend to start with the second one, it's definably the best in the series and when it was released it was the only real alternative to the open wordiness of Morrowind. But if you find it's graphics too outdated the third is pretty good as long as you install the newest community patch.

Afterfall: InSanity (capitalize ProPerly!) for £7.45
An interesting postapocalyptic game (from Eastern Europe, yay) marred by subpar acting (animation + voices) and linear levels.
What it has definitely going for itself is a feel of "physicality" similar to Condemned.
There will be a extended edition later in 2012 free for all current owners.

I'm worried about the port quality. Obviously they botched the PC porting pretty badly but then again there was a patch improving the mouse handling and adding a FOV selection. I just don't know if it helped enough.
Edit: A Steam user says
Other than the mouse acceleration (which is easy for the player to adapt to), the game doesn't have many others serious problems since the patch

Binary Domain's patch fixed most technical problems mentioned in the WIT. Everything else John said contradicts what everyone says about the game. I bought it.
It also features that special brand of awful English female accent. You know what I'm talking about.

Holy shit Binary Domain is so good! I don't know what John was smoking when he wrote that WIT.

I also noticed that Steam now allows me to pay directly through my own bank with iDEAL! That's a hell of a lot more secure than Paypal, I'm really glad they have this.

so Red Alert 3 is a bit cheap then, I have a soft spot for the first two but is this a yay or nay? More of a single player kind of guy so I would be looking more for a fun campaign

With that in mind:
- the weapons feels really good and the controls are tight
- two hours into the game I already met a dozen enemy types. The in-game database shows a lot more are to come!
- each enemy type has different behaviour and stats
- shooting is tactical: you can dismember robots and they alter their behaviour accordingly. There are decoys, various grenade types and squad commands. I find the AI very interesting to play around with. Enemy groups come in various configurations and it's fun to mess with them and see how they react to both you and their allies.
- combat is interrupted by entertaining setpieces
- the boss fights are AWESOME
- it's not too Japanese, if you know what I mean. The arcade elements are non-intrusive and it's not full blown Kojima/JRPG retarded.
- I find the writing and cutscenes entertaining. There's a bit of a John Carpenter vibe.
- There's a conversation system. You can often choose responses like "Damn!", "God damn!" and "Shit", no matter what your team says.
- Your team reacts to your words and to your gameplay performance. For example, after a poor performance a dude was confused and annoyed and reminded me that shit will only get more real... to which I was like "Damn!". He wasn't pleased. Apparently their behaviour both in and out of combat and the story will be affected by what I do. So far I haven't seen much of that but the conversations and their reactions to what happens are satisfying.
- Looks, runs and sounds great

If only it had a demo.
Yeah, you are just going to have to decide based on pure intuition.

I forgot to mention you have upgrades and currency. Combat performance is rewarded with money which you use at little trade stations to get ammo, weapons and upgrades for you and your team. Every character's main weapon has a bunch of stats and abilities to upgrade. Passive bonuses for each character can be found or purchased and then installed and swapped in what's basically a Tetris interface.
