Dark Souls isn't live yet but it should be going through soon.
EDIT: Its live now.
Well, this is something many people said would never happen.
Dominions 3, first released in 2006, is finally on sale for more than 15% off (and that itself was a new record at the time!).
The most recent game by the same devs, Conquest of Elysium 3, went up on steam in the past week or so and got a substantial permanent price cut so it's vaguely possible Dom3 could follow suite, but I think they're tied into gamersfront/shrapnel games as a distributor. If you bought that and hated it be relieved that CoE3 is pretty bad (very much a niche game designed for the game developers themselves to play rather than for others), but Dom3 is great because it's all about the multiplayer and completely insane. Solium Infernum has better presentation and more room for indirect conflict, but is basically a children’s pool compared to the ocean that is the madness, conflict and backstabbing of Dominions 3.
There are several good examples of play floating around, including a few from all perspectives (which usually involve excellent strategy and tactics groupthinks), but the most readable one is probably http://lparchive.org/Dominions-3/
In how many other games does Rl'yeh try to eat invisible Viking werewolves? The Spanish inquisition try to fight the might of undead Rome? Aztec werejaguars devour ancient Hebrew Giants? Rains of frogs crush your infrastructure? The Holy Grail be more than just a McGuffin? There's so much in the game that it's basically impossible to pin it down, but basically: Multiplayer (pbem/dropbox/etc), backstabbing, huge armies, incredibly powerful magic, micromanagement nightmares.

If anyone is interested in getting a Chivalry 4-pack (about 12 euros/10 pounds/14 dollars each) we still need 2 more people for it to be viable. PM me if interested.
I just bought Dishonored for €26.39 at Wow HD, the Dutch site. It was discounted this week, which made it cheaper than ShopTo, but I don't know if that's the case for the other localizations. Regardless, it's worth a look; the game is £25.19 and $31.99 on the UK/US site.
Steam Halloween Sale:
The Club is €2 on Steam. It's like Formula 1 with guns. One of the better arcade shooters. Has a great electronic soundtrack.
Finally! A sale where I'm not going to buy anything!
Hmm. Considering Mutant Blobs Attack for €3,49, but I'm not sure, since I've got Dishonored in the mail and am in the middle of Metro.
Anyone considering to buy either Bioshock from this sale: Don't, get it from Amazon instead, they're offering both games for $7,50.
