    I think the problem with current sales is they love the daily/limited time only deals, so everything is discounted by 50% ready for a massive 1 day only 75%. This leaves pages of games at worse discounts than they have been before on weekly/daily deals.

    Saints Row 3 is 2 years old, has been in Humble bundle, and its still only discounted to 50% but it will be a daily for 75% I'm sure.

    You realise it's your lack of desire and not the sales lack of games which is at fault then? :)

    Is that a trick question, because I can't visibly see you.
    Also it's an Indie bundle, what's wrong with posting an indie bundle?

    it's like 0.75 cents a game you'd normally pay $10-15 for.
    You can find the link on the IndieDB twitter feed, IndieDbB owns Desura, Desura is second to Steam.

    Am I the only one here using Desura and playing indie titles?

    PS. Just saw one of the stickies, please update the date on it...
    Thought it was some outdated thread about the month March

    There is no problem with posting an indie bundle. There is an indie bundle thread, but the more people that see a bundle with Rawbots, the better!

    I think its more about the fact that your post was similar to what a spambot would post.

    You know perfectly well what the problem is, games not being as cheap as in past sales.

    Of course, why would you even ask.

    Well I did make a forum post/thread, couldn't find it afterwards, thought I pressed cancelled. Saw bargain price thread, didn't feel like re-writing so posted in it instead. Didn't know my thread was moved to the sticky, didn't pay much attention due to the mention of March in the sticky header.

    So the post in this thread is kinda redundant...

    Gamersgate always reminds me a bit of that - the sorting mechanism isn't very helpful and there's a lot of tat in there. Some interesting stuff as well - I saw The Journey Down, Geneforge, Gothic, Patrician and Tropico games, although it's quite possible they've all been at better prices, and most of them are not recent releases. They could do with a system that at least allowed you to exclude DLC from the list, but since they keep making basic mistakes I don't think their site is going to get a lot of loving attention anytime soon.

    A lack of foresight that turned into tradition of sorts. You're welcome to poke fun at it.

    Couple more pages added to the Gamersgate sale. Its alright lads, I had a check for you all, its not good. But there is Survivor Squad on the front page for 1.49 which isn't half bad at all. Anyone had a crack at this?

    Standard disclaimer is that it's VERY VERY VERY moody about newer GPUs - the core game remained buggy/flakey on any moderately recent setup until the release of the latest DLC and even then it's not perfect.

    Also it's a UPlay title and has some online-required aspects (it IS playable offline but there are perks to playing online)
