    There are plenty of folks in strategy circles who speak very highly of UoC. $15 might be a bargain for what you can get out of it.

    The sequal Supreme Commander 2 is also on sale for €3,74 over at GamersGate. It's a bit of a simplification of the first game, but in itself not a bad one.

    Driver San Francisco for a dollar/euro/pound on Uplay today.

    Forewarning though, I've been waiting an hour and a half and it still hasn't processed my order, nor have I received an order confirmation or the game. I didn't have this issue with the last few games I bought straight from Ubi though, so maybe they're just having a glitch in the system or a high volume of orders.

    EDIT: So I don't know why, but it took like 3 hours to get the game in my library.

    Bought it and haven't gotten my game either yet. Will give it a couple of hours, but it's not a good first impression of uplay pc.

    EDIT: Got it now, the delay was just a couple of minutes. Not too bad, but still disconcerting when uplay doesn't warn about it.

    To be fair, I've bought 5 games on the Uplay store now, and that is the only one that had that issue.

    All Serious Sam games (I think) are bundled for $19.99 on Amazon now. Register on Steam.

    Steam has a daily deal for The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. It's €1 for me, so that probably makes it $1 and 0.70, are my guesses. It's a time-traveling platformer similar to The Adventures of Shuggy, only with a silent film aesthetic, from what I can tell. Be quick about it, there's only five hours left.

    Edit: Holy crap this game has terrible performance. It runs at half speed almost 50% of the time. And no, that's not a game mechanic.

    Runs absolutely fine here. Also, it was on a Steam sale few years back for pennies.

    Steam has a pre-order of War of the Roses that gives access to the beta and some DLC. I own M&B so that results in a 4-pack where everyone pays $17.95 USD.

    Anyone want in? From everything Total Biscuit has shown, it looks to be quite fun
    Steam: Gundato
    PSN: Gundato
    If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

    You're probably not playing it on a three-year-old gaming laptop. Mine is not the best, but this is the first time I have ever had performance issues when playing a 2D platformer on it.

    I noticed it was on sale in February, but this time it's going for even fewer pennies! 75% off instead of 60% off, that is. 6 hours ago, that is.

    IIRC it's an XNA title - which basically stands for "runs shit on PCs"

    Not that it matters, but it was actually more than that. Think it was 90% off.

    Does it give you immediate access to the BETA? I've tried looking around but can't find an answer..

    The banner says "& Beta Entry" so I'd assume yes.

    I only wish I knew if the PC titles can be activated through Steam.

    But on the Paradox forum it say's access will be given 'shortly' and as people are already playing it I thought it was somewhat vague.

    That might mean that they expected a lot of pre-orders and that it's not an instantaneous process.

    Or maybe it means that while pre-orders are open, they're still getting the game fully ready for an open beta for pre-orderers. That's quite the step up from their current beta, I'd imagine.
