I've been playing a lot of Faster Than Light (FTL) recently. In fact it's taken over from Guild Wars 2 as my go-to-game of choice.

It's pretty unforgiving, and 30 mins to 1 hour of work can evaporate in seconds, but I'm still finding it rewarding. I've unlocked my second and third ships which seem to be a little better than the standard one and I'm doing a little better each time. It's becoming obvious that you really can't expect every random event to go your own way and he further in I get, the more cautious I'm becoming. Still haven't found a solid balance between component upgrades and ship upgrades but I'm getting there.

Worth it if you're curious. Even if not, I'd say it's worth a punt in a sale.

P.s. Still haven't beaten it yet, even on Easy.


FTL is extremely addictive. I finally beat it on Easy last night after 20+ hours of game play. Used the Engi Cruiser to do it. Now, I have four ships unlocked and working on the others now.

A major hint: Learn to board. Makes the last boss SO much easier.

Gamersgate just tweeted they're giving Civ V to all preorders of XCOM as well. If you have the IGN 15 percent code and don't care about TF2 stuff, that's likely the best deal on the game now.

Bought a four-pack of War of the Roses on Amazon and had a Steam key left over, put it up on Steamgifts if anyone's interested.


Awesome, as a big Mount & Blade fan, this one has my eye. Kudos!

Good to know. Judging by the low metacritic score, anyone considering this may want to try it out on VOID first.

It's not a one time use code, so it should work for everyone with the PC version of Borderlands 2 from 2-4pm Eastern. You should try it again because I just tried it and got a golden key.

Are you entering it in the game or in the Steam client? It should be redeemed in game.

Should work as @DuvalMagic (Gearbox President Randy Pitchford) said on twitter it was timed for the EU crowd. There should be more codes later this evening for the after work NA crowd.

Codes are not region specific. Servers usually get hit hard when a code goes live and you get errors. It will work at some point.

Tony just posted this code:

OCTOFUN1 - Takes 25% off any non pre-order or 30 day new release game.

Works with Sleeping Dogs so it would make it $22.49!

Looks like Skyrim is $27 on GMG after 25% off coupon. I think that's the cheapest it's been by a couple of dollars.

Edit: Dawnguard is also $11.

I've redeemed both today, so no limit, but they expire usually within two hours.

Tried some Hell Yeah. It's not as amazing as Sonic Generations or as moving as Cave Story, but it's a good time for the $11.25 I paid off GMG.

Got a local Toys R Us near you?
You might want to CALL THEM or check them out, to see if they got Skyrim PC.
It's been $10 there in Skyrim PC Retail Box (vanilla).

Edit: Dawnguard is also $11.

That's the cheapest I've heard for Dawnguard, so far.
