    I Am Alive is a steal at that price. Glad I held off on getting it.

    I will spend my day at work today deciding between I am Alive and Lara Croft... May come down to a flip of the coin...

    I am alive and warhammer may be the only good deals here.

    Sadly I own both. Hopefully people will like this sale though.
    Strongly disagree, anyone that doesn't have Geometry Wars Evolved 2 should totally get it.

    480 msp. Really milking that extra dollar there. There was a time when games would drop to 400 no problem; now it's like pulling teeth.

    Thank goodness for STEAM. I think I picked up I Am Alive for like 30 cents on there.

    I've got Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved² its a must have game if you like Multi-directional shooters!

    Thinking of picking up I Am Alive, Gotham City Impostors, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, Bionic Commando: Rearmed 1 and 2 later in the week.

    The lowest I Am Alive has ever been on Steam was $5 (MSP equivalent: 400MSP), for a one day sale on January 25th. I don't think I'll lose sleep over that dollar.
    Gamers have only two hobbies: playing games, and complaining about those games.

    laugh obviously I was exaggerating about $0.30, but it's pretty common for STEAM to have multiple sales throughout the year which can net you games for less than a dollar to less than five dollars wink

    Hell, it didn't take long for Deadlight and Mark of the Ninja to drop to the $5 mark on STEAM.

    As for that extra dollar: 1 - them dollars add up 2 - you can still buy a lot of stuff for a dollar these days :P 3 - even with my cheap old PC ($400) I get better graphics and performance from games than on my thrice-RROD'd 360 Elite.

    That helps make the dollar feel like more than XD

    No love for Black Knight Sword? Love me some Suda and Grasshopper but this seems like a lesser effort. I need someone to tell me to buy it so I can thank/blame them.

    Finally! I've been waiting for ages for I Am Alive to go on sale. Might get Gotham City Imposters as well.

    They are really pushing the Bionic Commando - how many weeks was that on Sales & Specials?
    It's only been up there for 5 weeks or more. The app is dead anyways right? I'll have that pic of me winning scratch and match forever! Long live the pug dog!

    There are some really great deals here. Another solid week for XBLA lovers. I might invest in I am Alive and just picked up Black Knight Sword.
    I am what I am, and that's all that I am, an XBLA completion addict.

    To be fair, it's 60% off, which is great for an XBL sale.

    Also, considering that nobody with shopping skills pays full price for MSP, equating the price to dollars on Steam isn't usually an apt comparison. I'm still using my half-price MSP that I picked up late last year, so I Am Alive for the equivalent of $3 works for me.

    I've just bought Black Knight Sword. Ergo, you must buy it too.

    Simple.

    Hell Yeah is a fantastic game.

    Given that some of this stuff is on sale for the 10millionth time, isn't it about time they just received a permanent price drop?
