Definitely tempted by some of those... player impressions would be welcome, though.

Mushroom Wars is worth it if you like RTS games.

Check those 'CAG discussion thread' links in the OP for a few impressions on some of them.

I did that after making the post--thanks for linking them in the OP, it's a great idea.

Can anyone comment on the co-op mode in the Orbz game?

Mushroom wars is very cool, but it has NO online multi-player and you can't play more than 1v1 with actual people(up to 3 cpus and a player though). Very fun game but without online or 4 player local co-op it doesn't offer a whole lot outside of the campaign.

I have 100% on Cuboid and really enjoyed it for the 3.5 hrs it lasted. Been waiting for a deal on Mushroom Wars, loved the demo.

Can you go through the campaign in local co-op mode? or is it just skirmishes?

Campaign is single-player, 2-player is only 1v1's(on your pick of map), and that's it.

It's about time. I've been waiting for Magic Orbz to go on sale since before the stupid name change.

Getting Cuboid, friend might get Magic Orbz, and Mushroom Wars looked nice, but no online play means i'll be flipping a coin for that one.

Their site says the sale is good for 2 weeks, so enough time to give this a trial. Will have to try the demos of a few and see how they are. Thanks OP.

Looks like Mushroom Wars, Cuboid, and Digger HD for me. I'd throw Magic Orbz in as well, but I bought it when it was on sale with the add-on as a bundle ($12.99 for both). If you like Ricochet type games, you'll enjoy Magic Orbz.

Thinking about Magic Orbz. Should I wait for a sale on the bundle? Or what are the chances the add-ons will ever be on sale by themselves?

I'd buy the original for $4.99, and if you don't like it, no harm no foul. Maybe down the road the add-ons will be on sale too. If not, or you like the game so much you don't care, then you're still getting a better deal than I did for $12.99. ;)

Does anybody know if these sales will work on Amazon too, or just the PSN store?

Smash Cars reminds me of a toy version of Motorstorm. I'm definitely getting it.

Interpol is your standard I Spy-esque game....but with pain in the ass controls. And you'd think that because the game is really large on your screen that you'd be able to see the items better. Well, you'd be wrong.

In for Magic Orbz for me, Digger HD for my 4 yo to watch me play (since I've had to play the demo for him hundreds of times), maybe Cuboid.
I have a PSN Card from the Kmart 10 off 20 deal, so I'm set.
