    If you've already used the 25% gmg code for either xcom or dishonoured you can get a decent price here:
    http://www.pcworlddownloads.co.uk/
    XCOM is £23.49 & Dishonoured is £24.99.

    Makes me wish i'd got dishonoured through gmg instead of xcom now!

    Fow those wary i've used them a couple of times and it's like gmg - you get a key to stick into steam. Not had any probs

    Gothic 3 really pissed me off, even with the patch. I don't know it just got kind of dull. I didn't really get a sense of anything progressing - just rather boring characters and mundane quests with alot of trekking through hostile territory. I don't mind hostile territory actually but everything and their mom - including boars - can gore the hero. Ridiculous. Gothic 2 was even worse from what i recall.

    Is Risen a more modern take on all this? Is 2 better than 1? Which to get? Are the quests and sense of discovery better?

    If you didn't like G2 then you're probably best steering clear of PB's catalog, since that game is widely considered to be their best. Risen is basically a modern take of G1/G2, yes, so the things you didn't like in G2 are probably in Risen as well. Risen 2 is a bit easier, and the flow of the game is more linear than their other games, so you might like it. Definitely try the demo first.

    Steam's sale for the weekend seems to be all the games published by Focus. Seeing the 75% off I was actually thinking of picking some things up until I saw the prices. It seems they've marked things UP before applying the discount.

    For instance, the Game of Thrones RPG was definately NOT £45 yesterday. Or ever on Steam. Cheeky really.

    The Game of Thrones RPG is 75% off only bundled with that strategy.

    That GoT 75% bundle deal is the same price it was in a recent Steam promo. I'm waiting for the inevitable 75% or more off on just the GoT RPG (don't want Genesis) in the Christmas sale which will take it to £7.49 or less. It's not as though I'm likely to play it before 2013 anyway...or most likely 2014 with my track record on Steam Xmas sale backlogs.

    I sort of want Genesis. I'm aware I'll play it for like two hours, but still... The power of brands!

    Shopto.net has the RPG regularly available in both box and download for 9,85 pounds.

    I think they were pretty vague though whether it is the Steam version or not (is there a non-steam one at all?). Also they don´t let you make a download purchase unless you have first purchased something in box from them (maybe there was even a two box purchases requirement, not sure). I have no first hand experience with their download service. But the shipping in the UK is free so if you have time getting the box copy in UK would all in all cost the same as the download.

    Just bought Wargame: European Escalation from that Steam sale. I've waited for quite some time for it to go below €10.

    Not just cheeky, illegal in the EU (tho applying consumer law to digital purchases probably isn't going to work).

    p.s. this proves it

    http://www.steamgamesales.com/Lbr41/game-of-thrones

    History shows it's 'list price' was £29.99 until today - I'd raise it with them (as they're breaking the law) but they'll just hide behind some silly thing like the fact they're not based in the UK or somesuch shit.

    Focus are a company who's spent years foisting shit on the gaming community anyway - that they would pull a stunt like this isn't surprising - that Steam haven't called-them-out on it is disappointing tho.

    p.p.s fuck it, I raised a ticket with Steam Support asking them why they're allowing a publisher to flout the law - or even just to behave like douchebags (I used slightly more straightforward language in the email of course!)

    Worth reiterating that gog have this Pay What You Want thing for the Divinity games, where paying over the average (currently about $14) nets you Divinity 2: Director's Cut as well as the older games. The price is comparable to the Steam sale price and you get all the usual gog goodies + DRM freeness.

    It's still £29.99. The full price bundle is £44.99. For a couple of hours only the bundle was visible but now the RPG is on sale for 50% off alone.

    Regarding the focus sale.

    Should I buy BB:LE for $9.99 then buy BB:CE for the discount?

    Or I ask someone who has BB:LE to buy the CE for me?

    I would skip CE althogether, but that's just me. All it adds are three new team rosters, of which one is half-baked (Khorne), two new Star Players (mercenaries that you can hire with certain teams), and a new pitch graphic. Legendary Edition is pretty solid and contains ~20 teams, all you really need. However, if you can find CE for a really low price, I guess there is nothing to say against it.

    Thanks for that.

    Also is it possible for someone with LE to buy the discounted CE and gift it for me then? Or its not giftable?

    Ha, the Game of Thrones RPG is 75% off - from a price of 65€. Hoping they will change that during the weekend, who is supposed to believe that?

    Edit: Just realised that it's for the bundle. As I don't care for Genesis, I'm just waiting until the RPG is 66 or 75% off.
