    Steam's deal of the day is the lovely Trine for $5.
    A word of warning on Precursors: It has Starforce. Personally, intriguing as it may look, I don't think it's worth the risk.

    Steam seems a bit confused right now. Trine is their daily deal even though it has been the daily deal only one week ago. Considering how often it has been on sale, I think most people have it already. Maybe they're going to change it. Gift it to someone while it's still there!

    I've been hankering for a football game for a while, and as FIFA 12 is reviewing well before its release on Friday, I was wondering if any of you chaps might know where the best deal for it is? Would be amazing to find it somewhere under 20, but I suspect that's not too likely.

    I've bought a few keys there and they always worked (and I got scans for some of them, so they are legit). However, while they always claim to get the keys on or before release date, I've never gotten a key until 24-48 hours after the official release of a game. Also, some of their Steam keys are Russian and can only be activated in Russia.

    That's helpful, thanks. I'm not entirely comfortable with buying keys, though, I'm not entirely sure how legit it is in these situations. It may very well be fine but it doesn't sit entirely well with me. Is there a store/DD retailer doing it at a similarish/slightly more expensive price?

    I was about to suggest Gamersgate, but they seem to have hiked it to 30. I definitely pre-ordered for 25 a couple of weeks ago. Doh.

    Standard mail order price (Amazon/Gameplay/Play etc) seems to be 25 still.

    The Witcher II: Assassins of Kings Digital Premium can be had for 30$ at Green Man Gaming. Just use the voucher ONLYO-NDIGI-TAL20 for 20% off.

    That link to GMG is a referral link. If you sign up using that link and then buy a game we both get 5 dollars/euros/whatever you happen to be using.

    I hear you; when I buy there, it's mostly games I want to try but don't want to spend 30-40€ on as I always wonder about the legality as well.
    I bought CoD:MW from a different CD-key store back in the day and had the key revoked from Steam about a week later (from what I could gather those were legit Asian keys that were not supposed to be sold to the rest of the world) so there's always some risk involved it seems.

    Public service announcement: It's on Steam sale right now, too, and it comes out to about $1.50 cheaper.

    It also gets permanently reduced in price later this week according to GOG, so it's possible it will become even cheaper. If not, might as well wait until the Steam sale this Christmas.

    The Gamersgate version doesn't. Or at least it didn't, don't think they've changed it.

    I can only speak for the US site, but Gamersgate clearly states that it does have Starforce.

    As per usual with new releases, Amazon has Driver: San Francisco for 20% off, making the download $40

    For NA only, I'm pretty sure.

    Does anyone have an invite to SteamGifts?

    I am a broke person and it would be greatly appreciated.

    S.P.A.Z 3.35 at GMG, I think today only. It just went down to the price that made me bash the impulse buy button.

    Doesn't activate on Steam (I just tried) but should run without the crappy GMG Capsule thingy I think after you've downloaded.

    Thanks, time to spend that store credit I got out of those free games they handed out.

    Thanks. I didn't get a mail about this bundle for some reason, so I hadn't heard about it.
