And if you get ME2, get the DLC. Two of them were pretty fun, and they tie in to the decision tree for the third game.
And GMG's advantage is that they have price matched in a lot of cases, but still allowed you to use the 30% code. It will be interesting to see if they can sustain that model.
I thought I'd gotten away with this sale clean but I realised I actually bought Half-Minute-Hero in a Flash Sale - and a couple of copies of Sequence to give away - but it's still proving a cheap sale.
GMG have (for the 2nd sale running) gotten more of my cash - there must be some deals lurking in there I want tho, surely...

I've been flirting with the idea of getting Anno 2070, but have been put off a bit by the price against the other DLC/Purchase options. You can get the base game for £11.99, the deluxe for 13.99, and then a complete version for £24.99. I'm not sure if the extras are worth it. Any one have any experience with this one?
5€ (Mass Effect Standar Edition, 2,5 more if I get the Deluxe one, which doesn't have the more valuable DLCs)
7$ (Kasumi - Stolen Memory)
10$ (Lair of the Shadow Broker)
It probably is a great game, and some great DLCs, but the additional content, which seems pretty necesary to enjoy the whole story, is not only overpriced, but sold in a way that feels really uncomfortable. No, thank you. It's not worth paying that much and going through that much trouble. Such a pity they decide to do things that way.
The DLC isn't really necessary at all.
Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.
Hum... Really? As I've been told, Arrival covers a lot of the story and joins quite better ME2 with ME3, and the Kasumi one adds a whole character. Shadow Broker is the most important one, as far as I've been told, though, that's true.
Overlord is probably my favourite of the lot, though I'll be the first to admit that the mission itself is rather straightforward. It ties in nicely to a few of the main storylines, however, which might be of interest. Specifically those of the Quarians, the Geth and indeed that of Cerberus and the Illusive Man's methods and goals. The Geth-conflict is one of the highlights of the series for me, and I imagine your appreciation of this DLC will depend somewhat on that.
Lair of the Shadow Broker was quite fun as well. The assault on the actual Shadow Broker base is a bit lacklustre, but I definitely liked the earlier sections on Illium. That probably has something to do with me liking the entire setting there, too. The character Tela Vasir is sadly a bit wasted, but she's arguably one of the more interesting in the game. The Shadow Broker base itself is decent enough; once it's taken you get a few options to read about people's history and private correspondence, though you could of course do so online, since it's all text-based. There's also some intel you can gather on which planets possess which minerals in abundance, and there's some funding of schemes to be done - though again this is all text-based.
Kasumi is somewhat hard to recommend. You're already swimming in team-mates halfway through the game, and though it's nice enough her side-mission doesn't really stand out. She's also not a full character in the sense that you can't have actual conversations with her, she just gives you some random lines about stuff in her room and things that have happened. On the more positive side, when on mission she'll often have some of the more quirky and oddball things to say.
Anyway, you can skip all these and still have a great time, as most who played it when it first came out did. For €5 it's a fantastic deal if you're even remotely interested in the genre.
The odd thing with this one, is that I think I was the first person to discover the deal, or at least the first to make it public. No idea how long it was active for before hand.
