    that was the case with sim city 4, but at least i only paid 5 bucks for it. The game is just impossible to keep going, they've designed everything to make you lose.

    however I do enjoy a good similator and strategy game and sim city 4 didn't even make a 70 metascore vs civ 4's 94.

    you just need to be strategic HINT:Build outwards until people start complaining about commute times, then its time to upgrade your transport and up the density, only way to keep a city going is through scales of economy

    Direct2drive have CoD4:MW and CoD:MW2 on half price sale for the weekend. since I was able to buy at the UK prices I was able to pick them both up for about 6 euro cheaper than the steam sale during the week. Nice.

    I haven't seen a good deal in a while now, last good deal was the original Colin McRae Dirt but imo its kinda moot seeing as Dirt 2 and 3 exist. Im sure there will be good deals over the summer.
    EDIT: I guess the above Fear deal is okay, i was never a fan of the series myself.

    Lame, I own FEAR 1 and all of the DLC, trying to decide if I should buy it just for FEAR 2 and it's DLC.

    Really? I never played FEAR 2, but FEAR 1 has some of the best AI of any game out there.

    Fear 2 is not as good as fear 1, but it's still worth $20 IMO.

    I agree.

    I loved FEAR 2, but it just wasn't up to par with FEAR 1. But the game is still worth it especially at $20.

    That FEAR collection is now at $10 on steam.... I guess I can give away my discs of FEAR 1 and DLC's to a friend so I can justify buying it for FEAR 2....

    Yeah, thats what I had always figured. FEAR 1 was such an amazing game, I actually started playing it again recently. So I never really bothered with FEAR 2, maybe I will try 3.

    FEAR 2 isnt worth $20 IMHO. It sucked horribly.

    it's been around for a while. I think it started in Korea and now American publishers are adopting it.

    the idea is the game is 100% free but if you want high level or special items you have to buy them. it's a good piracy deterrent.
