    2.15$, or 21.5% more :/

    I think yes, I loved Sniper: GW, but I love stealth too :/ I've never been a good sniper, but this game was very fun for me nonetheless

    Meh. Got it for 5 bucks. If I get an hour of play out of it then its 5 bucks well spent.

    I bought it!! At only a fiver I wasn't really worried TBH. Here's a screenie. It's running very smooth, max settings @ 2048x1536. No in game AA but this can be tweaked in the config file. AI is a bit dumb/unfair on the harder difficulty levels but again there is a tweak out there that fixes it to some degree. I must say it is a very good looking game in motion, shadows are a bit pixelated though, even at my res.

    EVE Online is 5$ on Steam for MMO fans. A lot of people like this game.

    just don't forget it's a sub service, they often give the game out cheap as it costs monthly to keep playing.

    still, great game :)

    I have WoW for that. Not playing a bunch of MMOs simultaneously. One at a time will do unless it is for fr00bs.

    yeah i was never into MMOs, WoW included. I am a solo-er and it sucks in most all mmos. (save Eve)

    I am trying rift now, which i like. i can solo all day and then just happen across an event,
    join a public group, and take down some huge monster's mmo style.

    I don't like the whole commitment to a guild thing WoW requires to have similar play.

    anyway OT, bye bye :)

    eve is kinda fun, but the learning curve is beyond atrocious. and its certainly a sandbox mmo, so if you dont know what to do you are kinda left to just wander around aimlessly.

    I am going to cross the guild bridge in WoW when I get to it. Read, end-game content.

    People say good things about RIFT. I don't want to play more pay to play MMOs that are purely stat battles. WoW is all I need. That is the trend in MMOs, to make them more skill/action oriented. TOR will be that way.

    i like choosing skills and customizing characters.
    the more choices that make your avatar truly different in appearance/effect.the better.

    i think rift is heading in the right direction.

    I refuse to buy a game and then pay monthly to play it.

    I really like RIFT, but the monthly subscription kills it a bit for me and my friends and family :(

    So far I never paid any online game subscription (I consider Xbox Live one) and I'm happy. At first I totally refused to ever pay a subscription, but through the years I've been starting to accept more :( but at the end, I usually play MMORPGs for at least a year, and a year's subscription + game already = 100$

    I'm used to buying off steam at sale prices, or utilizing trade-ins, or even buying used games to trade-in in order to save $$

    More and more games you can play any class with either sex and any race of humans, not referring to the Oblivion type where the different races have different attributes.

    Won't do me any good for end game content (lvl 85 with Cataclysm), but thanks for the offer.

    Steam has a sale on a game daily for 24 hours duration now, so watch Steam daily for deals. So far I haven't seen an A list game in the sale but one could come along.

    Yes, but the DRM on the latest title in the series equates to a no-sale for me. On the Steam forums there is a thread stating that the DRM has been modified to make it more amenable to the masses and that the store page simply hasn't been updated. However, as the store page states that a constant Internet connection is required in black and white, I'm not willing to take the chance. However, each to their own and the DRM aside, this does appear to be good value for money.

    today is ruse and the settlers 7, both are 50% off. however all ubisoft titles are 33% off all week, so if you see a title you like now, it doesn't seem to matter but a dollar or so between the daily sale and the one running all week.
