Wish Fallout 3 was the GOTY edition, but $15 still ain't bad at all.

Dirt 2, King's Bounty, and Clear Sky are good buys at those prices. I got all excited about Fallout 3 until I went to the page and saw it wasn't the GOTY edition. =/

I bought King's Bounty and Clear Sky. Everything else I either have or don't want. Hopefully next week's sales will be better.

Sweet, I was hoping to pickup King's Bounty: AP for cheap.

Meh, might pick up DirT2. Fairly meh overall.

More than worth it at that price.

Ohhh Call of Cthulu for $5. Nice. Thanks OP!

Is Cthulu worth playing? I love the setting, but it wasn't exactly well received when it was released.

Wondering this as well. I'm an enormous fan of all things Lovecraft, and found out about this game a few years ago, but never pulled the trigger.

I'm also running Windows 7 now, so I don't know if that would be an issue. For $5 I may test it, but would rather be told it's fine beforehand.

^^ I'm running Win7 too. I'll post if there any issues with running CoC.

As far as the game itself, it's all about atmosphere. It looked pretty lame even by the technical standards of when it was released, so it looks even worse now. But, this is not a game you play to count the pixels or for FPS gameplay.

the D2D cash program is new, would rather it be rolling than a set period though

Call of Cthulu is an "interesting" game. It rewards you if you stick with it, which you'll have to force yourself to do. You'll see a lot of unique design in it.

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

I really enjoyed it until you went into the different dimension, where it got frustrating at times. But early on and especially the part emulating the story "Shadows over Innsmouth" really nailed it though. I'd say it's definitely worth the $5, especially if you're a Lovecraft fan.

How about Elven Legacy, any comments on that one?

A group of friends and I frequently play Arkham Horror, and I've been looking at Call of Cthulhu for quite some time in curiosity.

Not sure if I want to break the mental image I have of the board game, but for $5 its pretty tempting.

NWN2 for $10 and Clear Sky for $5 are probably buys for me...when I have money again.

My new Logitech G27 works pretty good on my computer desk. I think I will get Dirt 2 until I can afford and Playseat or Wheelstand Pro for racing on my PS3.

I played the main game, not the expansions. It's enjoyable, but it is also the type of game I like. Story/dialogue is forgettable, but it is more about leveling up your favorite units. Can get difficult at times.

The exp are cheap and really bring in the gameplay since each of them are it's own complete game.

It's good if you like srpg.

FYI, I'm pretty sure that the D2D version of Fallout 3 doesn't play well(if at all) with mods.

Dirt 2 is GFLW correct? Meaning achievements? And I assume 360 gamepad support.. how is the game? I'm more into arcadey than sim.. - really liked Blur demo.

Also - being a D2D noob, does it use a client or is it all web based login and account managment.
