    "Wait list," "no longer available," "wait list"... Great for those who got there in time, I guess.

    Waiting list? I guess everything is cleaned out?

    It was cleaned out yesterday. Avengers CE was the only good deal left yesterday morning for $15 but $22 shipping.

    Warning time for delists too then:

    Get any digital-only games, dlc, etc in case they suddenly disappear

    They've been fire selling Deus Ex And Tomb Raider every week for years...

    I checked this out either yesterday or the day before, and even then everything was sold out (in UK at least).

    I know it doesn’t have Xbox achievements, but I highly recommend everyone buy the Legacy of Kain games on Steam for $0.70 each. $3 for four excellent games is a steal.

    Unfortunately everything went to out of stock so quickly. If I would know earlier probably I would buy Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Deluxe Edition just for £6 in physical release!

    I already own the titles I’m interested in. But I like to see all this activity. I hope that dormant studios will soon start developing new titles.

    There's some back in stock, but they won't ship to Canada the bastards
    Life, it's funny that way

    I checked Steam, but apparently the sale has been paused for some reason. I got this notification: "Notice: Square Enix has temporarily removed this title from sale to work on some important updates. Please check back soon!"

    Should be 5 games if they have them all. I'd say two of them are excellent. Blood Omen 2 had pretty terrible controls. Soul Reaver 2 had kojima-length cutscenes that just went onnnnnn. Defiance had the best gameplay but was mostly filler.

    I didn't realize they were on steam so thanks for calling that out.

    Maybe it's a sign I should work on Tomb Raider and Rise of Tomb Raider online cheevos in case they plan on closing servers?

    I don't understand why the 3DS and Wii U e-shops didn't have fire sales before they closed for good this week (you could buy with Nintnedo gift cards up until the 29th... then it will stay open a little longer but you can only use money already in your e-wallet, more can't be added)
    TIL: Having numbers instead of letters in a gamertag is edgy. Awesome!

    Now Legacy of Kain was a great franchise that should definitely be reignited.
