It's already time for another D2D sale? Nice.

Steam will always have the best blow-out deal events, but I always seem to get excited over a digital download sale.

EDIT: In addition to this sale, D2D is also doing daily deals. Two games each day for 30 days. I have no idea when this started, though.

I have it on steam and it freezes every 30 minutes to an hour.

Man KOTOR and Jedi Knight Bundle are very tempting at that price.

How well does KOTOR run on the PC? Got it on the ol' G Xbox when it first came out, but never actually completed it. As I recall, the frame-rate sometimes equaled slide-show levels.

It's says it runs 30 days, and is a September sale, so I assume it started yesterday, with a tick over time of 1:00 PM Eastern. Yesterday (and still active when you posted) was Hearts of Iron 3 70% off and Civ 4 50% off.

It just changed to Vampire Bloodlines 50% off and Gun 50% off.

They uploaded a few of the future images just like in their Christmas sale, presumably it's a preview of what's coming.

I wonder if the 50% off BFBC2 deal will just be what's now the normal price around town. If it's 50% off $29.99 I might have to buy into that. :)

Mount & Blade: Warband at 70% off sounds like a plan.

Modern Warfare 2 at $10 off, not so much.

Hahaha, I love how D2D can never seem to hide their promotional images from resourceful CAG's. I was very excited to hear GUN and Vampire were on sale, but, sadly, that's some steep pricing.

GUN is around 5 years old, isn't it? Ouch.

It's currently $29.95 as a regular price at direct2drive, but they have been known to jack up prices minutes before starting an XX% off sale on a title.

That said, I wouldn't get too excited about the ME2 or BFBC2 sale banners. The image numbers don't match up with the product ID in the games page's URLs like they should. 355 goes to "25 to Life" from Eidos, and 4256 goes to "3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures" from Activision. Of course any of these future banners could just be preliminary and not actually real.

GamersGate is also selling the Penumbra collection for that price.

Sweet! I remember last year's "5 years old $5 sale" and it was amazing...bought more stuff then I care to mention (even a few I previously owned on the 360).

KOTOR on XP ran fantastic for me many years ago. I don't know how it runs on Windows 7 though.

You can hack the retail version to enable widescreen resolutions. I know you can't hack the Steam version, but I don't know about D2D's.

I had concerns orver getting KOTOR due to things i had read. However, I got it off Steam and it runs perfectly fine on windows 7 64x.

if it was KOTOR 2 I would've bought it... Beaten KOTOR 1 too many times. The rest of the games are unappealing to me. Will def bite on Mount and Blade if the price is right when that one comes around.

Mass Effect 2 at 75% off and Bad Company 2 at 50% off would be awesome. Hopefully Steam will match those. Steam does have Company of Heroes at 75% off, so maybe the other prices will line up.
To each his own.

I'd love to buy the Star Wars games, but would rather have them on Steam. Oh well.

I do not think it is £6. It is probably about £4.

I've never played them, but it looked like Tropico 3 was a big improvement.

The expansion for it might be coming up for sale this month too.

ye 6 U.S. dollars = 3.8981289 British pounds

Some of the titles are available worldwide from the US store. Just use the flag in the top right corner to switch to the US store (you may need to use it a few times if it redirects you back to the .co.uk).

If the title you're interested in is only available for sale in North America from the .com, maybe you can get it from the .eu store instead of .co.uk. I think €6 is cheaper than £6?

Haven't played any others, but Tropico 3 is great. Easily my favorite of the genre.

Edit: If you get into it, the expansion is worth full price just to have smaller garages.
