    The game industry has long been using price fixing. Consequently I never buy a game new or at retail price because I believe the schemes of publishers to be unethical.

    Interesting stuff, but 2 warnings:

    -the game seems to have a few troubles running in soms OS's(Vista/+, especially x64 flavour). In my case the game will just suddenly crash without warning. Didn't get to start playing it yet so it may very well be something easy as pie to solve, but there are some complaints.
    -the Company of Heroes MMO should be releasing shortly(I think there's already a Beta) and it gives access to the content from these games, for free, so... just a heads-up :)

    *EDIT*

    as a heavy CoH player (and a member of a clan who plays it all the time), i have a few comments.

    1. The game has no OS problems. XP, vista, 7, 32 and 64 bit are all dead stable. The game does NOT crash - so its likely your system (be it bad/old audio drivers, or a not quite stable OC)

    the MMO i paid little attention to, but its going to be a very different style of gameplay. even if the units and content is similar, its not the same game - CoH is VERY worth playing.

    It doesn't crash during gameplay but it usually crash when the game is finished (points screen).

    I've never crashed at any point in the game, running Win7 x64. Perfectly stable.

    Looks like a Steam Deals week is back, probably not as good as the summer one, but here we go!

    Impulse has a deal where if you buy Master of Orion 2 for $6 you get Master of Orion 1 for free.
    Just thought some of you 4x space strategy fans might be interested.
    It's old, but a classis.

    was masters of orion 3 any good? i saw it but never picked it up.. big fan of the series but I know some games tend to do too much with sequels and over-think their way out of a quality product.

    How many of the SW deals have you guys bought? I looked at the pack, but most of those games, while great are a bit too old for me to really have the urge to go back to. But the daily deals have been great, KOTOR for $2.50 Empire at War Gold for $5, and today Battlefront II for $5, I've actually bought all the deals so far... dammit Steam is too addicting and easy to buy games from, just sit in my chair, click to buy, click to dl, click to play, click to see back account... then cry, granted the small amount these games were, it's not that bad.

    It got bad reviews from the "MoO" purists due to the way it handled resource managing (if I recall correctly), but I liked it. It's the only MoO that I have at the moment.
    I might pick up 1 and 2 for only $6.
    They are great for playing on a low end laptop when travelling.
