On the fence about Bad Company 2 and Vietnam. How are the single player campaigns? I couldn't give a toss about if the multiplayer is any good, I very rarely jump into competitive FPSes.
What happens if you spend your tickets on a game you don't have? lol
Well bugger, Torchlight is a quid cheaper than what I paid for it and it's on Steam. That'll learn me good!
Arma 2 seems like an odd choice considering that's going Free To Play.
Tropico 3 will surely get a lot of people and Transformers: War For Cybertron, seems to be the other good pick. OP update incoming.
Tropico 3 -75%
That's about it. I'd like to try Two Worlds II, but even at -66% it's still a bit much, given its alleged hit-and-miss quality. Good deal on Assassin's Creed 2, but it too needs to drop even further to make up for the DRM.
Oh! And cleverly hidden behind a "Dragon Age II" graphic:
Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition -66%
Any thoughts on Defense Grid: The Awakening?

nice graphics, varied maps, good length campaign, fun to replay levels, the best tower defense game around imo. and the map packs are less than a pound for four or free if you have the tickets for it.
People who enjoy playing on the RPS free server should def. get ARMA Combined Ops to enjoy all the possibilities of ARPS tacticoolness.Arma 2 seems like an odd choice considering that's going Free To Play.
Defence Grid is well worth it. Trust me, I'm not a huge fan of TD games and I still enjoyed it. It just feels so right.
I'm going to grab War for Cybertron, and I'm on the fence about ARMA II. Single-player verdicts again, please.
To be fair, it does say franchise sale over Dragon Age 2.
The DRM for AC2 was mostly removed. You need to be online to activate it, but after that it's good to go. From what I've read around anyhow.
I'd be interesting in hearing about Transformers, but nothing else interests me today.
If I get something from the prize booth with my tickets, will I lose the tickets in my grand prize giveaway jar?
Anyone here tried Two Worlds II? I remember hearing that the first one was pretty god awful, but that the 2nd was an improvement... What I'm interested in knowing is whether or not its enough of an improvement from god awful to actually be counted as good/worthwhile?
Re: Assassin's Creed 2 DRM, you just have to be online when you launch the game now. Likewise with Brotherhood, I believe. So that's not actually too bad since you don't lose progress when your connection drops now.
I enjoyed Transformers when it came out. Multiplayer is interesting your load-out and bot-design.
Singleplayer was okay, but the maps are horribly, horribly linear, even though the architecture of the city itself was quite lovely.
It's an enjoyable if short-lived game. There's been better shooters, but then, there's been a LOT worse shooters. Definitely a recommendation for "Yeah, get it cheap" - I don't regret my purchase last year, but it wasn't really worth the money.

I only play ARMA II in singleplayer and I love it. It's gorgeous, the missions are good and I like the freedom of cruising around the country, talking to people, gathering information about my mission... It feels real.
Transformers is a competent shooter with a couple of fun gimmicks and excellent production values. It has coop and people still play it in multiplayer. I saw the new TF movie yesterday, and now I grabbed a Steam copy of the game too.
So in my mind, it gets filed alongside games with a SecuROM-style activation limit, as something I'm just renting ("UBISOFT MAY CANCEL ACCESS TO ONE OR MORE SPECIFIC ONLINE FEATURES UPON A 30-DAY PRIOR NOTICE PUBLISHED"), and I wouldn't pay more than $5 for that.
