Still, something for those who want to get some stuff they've missed.

Shattered Dimensions and its sequel Edge of Time are both great. Edge of Time was in development first so while they do share similarities there are also apparent differences between the two. They're as accurate to the source material as you can get (including the dialogue, which is something you really want with a Spider-Man game).
DrCanadianNinja - Just my damn luck. Bean Dive happens on the same weekend as a double credit weekend on Warframe.

Any recommendations for Prototype? Looks interesting, I'll have to see if there's a demo if nothing else.

Prototype was fun. If you don't mind the absurd difficulty spike around the half-way mark.

I like the way you have added the discount percentage punkyliar. This is especially useful for those of us who use a different currency.

The sale on games from Games on Demand is a joke. I've been thinking about getting Family Guy for a while and they have it on sale for $30. I then checked Amazon.com and they have it on disc for only $20. It's pretty pathetic how often I see sale prices more expensive than getting a disc copy instead.

I'm a sucker for Spidey and although many of the other GonD titles can be found cheaper in disc, it's hard to find the web slinger's ones for less than this. I have Shattered Dimensions and love it. Getting Web of Shadows and Edge of Time.
