I'd love EU3 chronicles, but not paying over €20 for it.
Day 2 of GOG daily deals. TW2 at 75% off, FLT and Arma 2 at 50% off.

Good spot, though it seems they're temporarily out of keys. Evidently a lot of people waiting for it to fall into impulse-buy range.
King Arthur 2 is a daily on GMG for $2.49. It may be the embodiment of lukewarm reception, but that price is insane for a somewhat big budget game released this year. Steamworks.
EDIT: As you may have guessed, I bought it. And, eh... it says it's a 142 MB installation. What's up with that?

It's an ultraviolent power fantasy and it's awesome. Unfortunately the story goes full retard and you destroy the system.
Syndicate has a horrible, horrible bloom problem. Really terrible.
Just scroll fast through this article
That will simulate what you see on your screen.
There is no way to turn it off.
There is a way to improve it, it actually doesn't look too bad once fixed:
I thought it was a fun shootybangs game, nothing more, nothing less. Plus if you find people to co-op with, it's really fun.
I liked the style of Syndicate but I really didn't fancy it as a shooter it seemed average at best with one gimmick and some of the boss fights were pretty annoying. It was really disappointing to me as a Starbreeze games having none of the elements that have made their past games interesting.
I actually thought the hacking gimmick thing helped it remain interesting, at least more so than other linear shooters because you can bring lots of different powers to the fight. It's not a great game, but I enjoyed it as a shooter, though I didn't play the original games.
Just in case anyone is dumb like me, it doesn't include the base game.
It's been that price before - it's been cheaper on Amazon - it's a shitty port by most people's estimations and it's a Criterion game who's output has been on a downhill slide since Burnout 3 - the WIT here wasn't immensely positive - and it will be £10 soon enough, at which point I might jump-in myself ;)
You move, really.

The entire Geneforge series is on sale on GOG for $3.74. That's about 0.7 cents per hour, as I understand it.
On the one hand, that's an amazing deal. On the other, it makes me very, very sad.
Buying games you aren't going to play is a waste of money (no matter how cheap they are). Forcing yourself to play games you wish you hadn't bought is a waste of time. Both are best avoided.
