    Yeah, it is actually really funny that EA seems to love Europe

    Hmm, in the case of the two games that pique my interest (Dragon Age: Origins and Game of Thrones RPG), this Origin sale looks like a case of trying to lock you in to the Origin version in the hopes that you'll want to buy the DLC at some point. If all of the DLC is really, really not worth it in either of these cases, please let me know.

    DA:O I found all the quest DLC except the one set in the deep roads to be worth it. And the deep roads one was still pretty decent, it was just... well... the deep roads. The item DLC not so much, but all of that is free these days anyway.

    SSZ is getting two kidney punchings at the moment--one for being an average-ish game, and another for release and pre-release discounts, which translates to a majority of its backers paying more for the game than the slimy general public (that's you, I think).

    I paid $15, so I have no bitter feelings, but I suspect this won't be the last time Kickstarter pricing and release-sale pricing merge badly, which I tend to think is pretty damaging for the future of games funding on Kickstarter. Paying less--or at least not more--now for something you receive much later is pretty widely understood to be fair, which is why it's so prevalent in indie funding.

    Anyway, I just installed, so I'll be back with some impressions.

    Also, The Secret World for $10 on Origin. I don't want it now, but good, good. Soon.

    Not in the UK

    Thank God, otherwise I'd have to buy it

    It does indeed seems to be an Estados Unidos deal; €30 here in what I imagine is Origin's "Euro"-store.

    I grabbed SSZ discounted earlier in the week after watching a few of the previews on it. It looks a bit "meh", but it still looked fun. I am downloading now, I'll give an opinion after I get a chance to try it (apparently the demo for the new Metal Gear also came out, so I am right now killing time while my PS3 grabs and installs it).

    Tonight's IndieGameStand deal is highly likely to be The Oil Blue.

    I think this was mentioned a while back, but Amazon has the THQ Mega Pack on sale for $25 USD here: http://www.amazon.com/THQ-Mega-Pack-.../dp/B00B1GFKCA

    It Includes (all steam keys):
    CoH
    CoH - Tales of Valor
    Darksiders 2
    Darksiders
    Homefront
    MX vs ATX Reflex
    Metro 2033
    Nexuiz
    Red Faction: Guerrilla
    Red Faction: Armageddon
    Saints Row 2
    Saints Row 3
    Supreme Commander
    Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance
    Titan Quest Gold
    Warhammer 40k: DoW Gold
    Warhammer 40k: DoW 2 Gold
    Warhammer 40k: Space Marine
    Warhammer 40k: Retribution


    As best I can tell this is the cheapest place to get Darksiders 2 on the internet atm; and probably worth it for anyone interested in those games as theres a good chance some of them could be disappearing soon (Titans Quest, Darksiders, and Red Faction haven't been bought aparently). That said, does anyone know when this deal is expected to end?

    Ed: Theres potentially two copys of SupCom, as a comment suggests you get SupCom 1 when you register SupCom: FA on Steam.

    I would agree with this. DA:O has some pretty good DLC packs that are worth the price of admission. They don't hold a candle to Fallout New Vegas: Dead Money, but I don't think anything comes close to being that awesome.

    Thanks for the info on Dragon Age - I won't be buying it from Origin, so. I don't own anything with them yet, and I'm not keen on getting locked in to their ecosystem.

    Kingdoms of Amalamadingdong: Reckoning
    Dragon Age 2
    DCS A-10C Warthog
    Two Worlds 2 'Velvet Goatee' edition (what?)

    And a bunch of the usual sale suspects like Dragon Age Origins (not the Ultimate Edition), Batman AC GOTY, Burnout Paradise, both Alan Wakes, both Dead Spaces, ME1, ME2 Collectors, Crysis 2 Max edition.
    /sadface

    As is usual, no sale on for Australia, half the games not available to purchase and prices 2x-3x more expensive for those that are. It's like EA doesn't want to sell games here.

    Like every MMO, The Secret World has its own ecosystem so you can buy it from Origin without any worries if you were interested in it.

    If you want to get The Secret World cheap in Europe, you can try this address: http://store.origin.com/store/ea/en_...38900/ccSet.us
    I entered a US billing address, payed via paypal and the order went through. Doesn't seem to work for everybody though.

    the dlc for got is entirely forgettable, and the da:o stuff is fine. it's not great but it's somewhat enjoyable.

    of note, though, gamersgate and amazon usually have really good sales on da:o complete. i got da:o complete + da2 complete (the non-origin versions) for $10 recently via gg.

    Baldurs Gate 1+2, Icewind Dale 1+2, Planescape, Temple of Elemental Evil and both Neverwinter Nights games are 7.10 from Gamestop, here.

    I think you need the Gamestop app to download them, but they run without them, at least BG does.
