    I got Alice and Contrast, but for some reason I can't get Catherine. That's the one I really wanted!

    Nice sales here. Finally got that Mass effect dlc! I was starting to wonder if it was ever going to be on sale. Looking forward to dead space and alice also.

    Anyone having issues using get the Amalur DLCs with Account Credit. It is only giving me the option to purchase using Credit card even though i know i have enough on my account to cover the download.

    Bought the Test Drive 2 DLC and Alice: Madness Returns. Thought about getting Kingdoms of Amalur, but even though I understand it's a lot of gameplay, it's hard to justify $20 for one game with all that DLC.

    Nice sale.

    CITADEL is a must (great value), I've waited for this for ages and Catherine is an outside the box kind of game (which is a good thing!) Still don't get some of weird prices between £,$ & € on some items though.

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Catherine for $10 is a steal, assuming you don't mind a game that's unlikely to be completed and delights in kicking your ass.
    I dunno, although the game was challenging at times, I didn't had much trouble completing it.
    It just took a long time since you'll have to replay the entire story a few times.


    If you haven't already, and you like good puzzling games, BUY CATHERINE!
    Two well placed saves and gold medals takes care of playing through the story multiple times for the endings. But past that, the game wants you to learn the rules and will not hold hands onto the ending unless you're on easy.

    Hell, I would consider myself a great Catherine player by virtue of the fact that I did complete it, yet Menhir, Obelisk and the last two stages of The Empireo on Hard still demolished me.

    Just because you had no trouble doesn't mean it's an easy game. Now, learning the rules, beating the game, getting gold medals, beating all stages of Rapunzel, beating Babel, learning how to play with two controllers because it's literally impossible to beat Babel solo, then beating it on Hard with gold medals... all that is supposed to be no trouble completing it? I guess it's sitting around a 3.5 ratio because everyone just got bored with the game.

    Mirrors Edge is an amazing game. Very different than anything else out there. Game has a learning curve, but if you are willing to put the time in it is really something special. *Warning-Some of the time trials are extremely hard, making this a tough completion.
    Alice Madness Returns is an average platformer with some nice visuals. The original game is free to download and includes achievements that are part of the original 1000. At the discounted price, this is a great deal.

    Anyone know anything about the "Blood Knights" arcade game? Worth a purchase at 50% off?

    Crimson dragon for me.

    Also might be worth getting the German version of skate 2 if you like that series and have a PAL console. No need for gold as it's not dotw smile

    Too bad you bought Dead Kel at all. I just happened to finally get to it in my back log on Sunday and ran into a nasty game breaking glitch. I am at 168 hours into the game (20 more than I spent on a much better Fallout 3), waited until the end to do this dlc and now I can't finish the game without goint 14 hours back. Sweet. 2 years later, a shut down company, and no patch in sight ever.

    Edit: I figured out how to get past the glitch.. I might make a guide if there isn't one up already.

    Contrast looks quite good. I enjoyed the demo - definitely something I'd like to play :)
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.
