THQ Nordic just bought out Koch Media:

So now, re-branded THQ has Volition & Saints Row; Homefront; Metro; and Dead Island IP's.

Hard to keep track of all the publisher comings and goings.  I think Nordic used to be JoWood or bought out JoWood.

 

Here we go:


Beginnings (1990–2011)

In 1990, Swedish entrepreneur Lars Eric Olof Wingefors founded LW Comics AB, a company to sell and trade second-hand comic books. In 1993, the company's focus shifted towards video games, becoming a mail-order retailer for secondhand software and cartridges, and finally Nordic Games AB. Its headquarters are located in Karlstad, Sweden. Over the years, the company added new goods to its portfolio, and established several stores over Scandinavia. In 2000, British retailer Gameplay.com acquired Nordic Games for GB£5.96 million in shares.[citation needed] After the dot-com bubble, Wingefors re-acquired the Nordic retail division from financially troubled Gameplay for 1 kr.[2] In 2004, the company started with a new outlet store concept and entered into the video game industry.[3] In 2008, Nordic Games entered game development by creating its own publishing branch, Nordic Games Publishing AB, in order to create products for its outlet stores.

In 2011, Lars Wingefors founded Nordic Games GmbH as a Europe-wide video game publisher. On 16 August 2011, it was announced that the new company had acquired assets from JoWooD Entertainment: its products, brands, and subsidiary DreamCatcher Interactive, including its The Adventure Company division. Effectively, JoWooD, DreamCatcher and The Adventure company would further be used as labels of Nordic Games.

 

Pretty interesting.

I wouldn't even spend my fake Blizzard money on it.

The Steam deals are so few and far between that the random topics are for the most part justifiable.

 

It seems most members here are smart shoppers, with the knowledge of the best deals and prices rarely being found on Steam. I can't remember the last time someone jumped in to ask if Game X was a good price, or if Game Y was at an all time low. I think this thread has done a good job educating others through the 97,304 posts and ~14 million views since January of 2015.

Exactly.  Steam hasn't had more than a handful of semi-decent deals in well over five or six years now.

Seems like every other bundle is some degenerate animu-fest bundle.
