    If you got the original game yet, this might hold you over.

    There is a trick to making the normal game work with widescreen rather than stretching it, but it's not a very good solution. That mod does it nicely, I'll be playing that till the one on Steam releases.

    Thats pretty cool. Aoe2 is such an awesome game. Where else can you have armies of trebuchets? And the ships were the best too.

    Lol, btw I found a couple friends to go in on a fourpack with me

    If it included all the DLCs too, I'd be tempted, but it doesn't. ME3, the DLCs are very important.

    For ME3, they screw you with the DLCs.

    One of the most important ones, from a story perspective was From the Ashes. A day one DLC that they decided to cut out of the game and sell to the player.

    The extended cut is the way the game should have ended to begin with, considering they stuck with the same ending. But it was free, so not bad.

    The Leviathan DLC was retarded, it was made specifically to justify their terrible ending. And then they charge you money for it.

    Omega was over-hyped, poorly executed and over-priced.

    Haven't paid any attention to the latest DLC. Mass Effect has turned into the EA test-bed for selling overpriced DLC.

    Leviathan is the most important DLC from the story perspective.

    Citadel adds the most content to the game out of all the DLCs. It isn't really important in terms of plot but I liked it.

    mmm the only ones I would really buy are Nightmare in North Point ,Zodiac Tournament and Year of the Snake.

    The rest are weapons/outfits or a few missions.

    I bought the lot and didn't regret it. I was surprised they added so many little side jobs to level your character up. There was one where you get to play a cop--that one stood out as being fun/what the base game lacked.

    I guess it really boils down to how much $17 means to you.

    GMG has many deals that are for that day only, and the sale of the Resident Evil games was that day only, much like Steam's daily deal. I suppose from now on I could list it as "one day only" when posting a sale on GMG.

    Are you forking out the extra $1 you missed in that transaction?

    I get emails of the discount codes too, and I thought I'd post about it, but manofthem did it first, and found it odd that he had a different price >.>

    When I applied the code it was 50% off already though. Maybe there was a discount before that too.

    I see what you're saying. The RE games have been 50% off, still are, and then you can off another 20% off, making your $8.

    But, the first day it was 75% off for $5, then 20% that for $4. I made sure by taking it all the way to checkout but it wouldn't let me since I had already purchased RE5 from GMG before, last time when it was on sale for like $9 I think :banghead:

    also, here's the expired SD page
