    Guess I'll start watching the papers for a good retail sale then :)

    It's 23.47 for the Limited Edition here, which is probably the best you'll see for a while.

    GamersGate are putting up some titles for sale again, including The Settlers.

    The Settlers 6 - 3 (No expansion available on GamersGate)
    The Settlers 7 Gold Edition - 9 (UbiDRM)
    The Settlers Complete Bundle - 12 (Settlers 7 Gold, Settlers 5, Settlers 6. No expansions for the previous two on GG)

    The Settlers 7 DLC is also on sale, but as I write this, DLC Pack 3 Complete currently isn't on offer, much to my annoyance (As it stands, it's more expensive than The Settlers 7 Gold).

    Lego Batman and Batman: Arkham Asylum GotY are also still on sale there for just over 5 a piece, and getting one will net you 10% off a pre-order of Arkham City, whilst both will get you 20% off.

    Amazon has the Men of War Collection for 87% off, as well as a few of the individual games for upwards of 75%.

    ArmA II sale on steam... looks like a pretty good deal to me... Except I don't think I'll ever have the time to get invested in the multiplayer. How is the singleplayer? Worth 10 bucks for Operation Arrowhead?

    Steam has 75% off AI War. $5 for the core game or $7.49 for the game and expansions. I tried the demo and couldn't get past the clunky UI, I'm not a 4X gamer at all though - haven't even delved into SotS yet which I got when it was cheap - so maybe it isn't clunky at all if you're experienced with the genre.

    I know there are some fans around here, hence the mention. A couple of weeks ago I probably would have bought it, but all the talk lately about not buying games just because they're cheap has convinced me to hold off on more buyings.

    From an interface standpoint, AI War is very much an RTS. It plays a lot like a 4X game on a macro level, but was designed to control in a way familiar to any RTS player (with some nice modifications to eliminate as much need for micro as possible).

    The Paradox e-mailout that has just landed in my inbox includes a code for a free copy of Sword Of The Stars, which is very kind of them.

    Whoops, got the mail too and deleted it as spam. Thanks for the tip! Looks like a nice game.

    I'd say no. The SP isn't bad but it isn't really good either. Multiplayer is where the game shines and you don't need to invest hours and hours of training either. We have a very active RPS ARMA 2 community that's very open to newcomers and doesn't expect any competence at all. See the ARMA 2 Thread in the Gaming Groups Subforum or check herosquad.org

    Yeah quite tempted. Unsure, however. I mean I do want a good shooter game, but I'm concerned that with a bit of an aging computer the popup is just going to be too brutal for me to endure. It's not a bad computer by any stretch, but it is a bit past its best. Anybody who has rage and has a comp that roughly match the specs of 4gb RAM, a GTX 260, and an intel E8400 (dual core 3ghz each) to offer some advice?

    I have a friend with a very similar rig to yours (He has some quad core instead... I'm unsure of the clock speed). If I use the performance he got as a judgement, it would be a definite pass. The game looked awful even after you let the textures pop in. He also told me he had to tweak it heavily to even get it to run the way it did. Really unfortunate... That rig should have no problem running that game...

    Ah, that's a shame, but I'm glad I know before I bought it. Thank you. :)

    What a great 'Midweek Madness' offer. Great to see brand-new-ish games on sale. Too bad Skyrim's out this week, or I'd have picked it up.

    Right, because too much of that definitely wouldn't be an indication of an incipient industry crash. No sir.

    Edit: To be clear, a game that came out and was received poorly doing this is obviously not a problem, I just take issue with the notion that this is something we want to see with regularity.

    A brand-new-ish game that was received somewhat poorly, mind. I'm sure they didn't sell as many copies as they'd hoped. That's been the pattern a few times lately - hyped game disappoints, goes on sale early. The highly-rated ones stay at 90-100% of the base price.

    Stop making disappointing games, say I.
