    It's just been a general turn the MMO industry was doing, which seems to work some.But League of Legends cemented how good of a strategy this is for a non-mmo game. If you deliver the content your customers want, and you don't lock them out of huge things, they will buy costumes. League is completely free to play, for everything, never have to pay a cent, but since I have enjoyed it so much, I gladly bought some costumes. Too many games tote around "Free to Play" then lock you out of special abilities, or don't allow you mounts or something stupid.

    Wow, I gotta say I'm shocked by the news that the game is now free to play.

    Why? Because it's an awesome game, one that has given me hundreds of hours of pure enjoyment online. I still remember when I bought the Orange Box for a mere 20 or 30€. So much fun for so little money!
    I really hope that the switch to free-to-play doesn't mean they don't care so much for it now...

    Its a 10 buck game. Damn thing only has a 3 hour single player and the multiplayer is nowhere near BC2.

    yeah eu is a very dry strategy series. very in-depth, slow, and rewarding.

    I like it, but tend to agree - the pace, interaction and also the big budget graphics of
    the total war series keep me coming back, i've only put 20 or so hours into EU3.

    still, if you don't mind good but basic graphics, and you want a tabletop-like in-depth
    strategy game, Europa Universalis 3 is for you.

    Civ 5 gets a decent cut from £27 to £16.15.

    Up to 75% off other 2K games

    50% off Crysis games (inc 2).

    A friend on Steam linked me to that site and also said that it was legit, so i think it is.

    He's question was more then legitimate, before someone linked me to that site i never heard of it and i would never try to buy a game from a site i never heard of and doesn't have a positive well known track record that im aware of.

    Does anyone here who has one or more of the Ironclads games know if they work on 64-bit? I downloaded the demo and it crashes when I try to start a new game, apparently because the game is 32-bit only. However, the developers said that the 64-bit issue had been solved, though some people still reported issues.

    Test Drive Unlimited 2 got some decent reviews (including 88% from my bible PC Format). For five euro I can't really go that wrong. Also I think my wife is in the early stages of labour so if I don't buy it now I could miss out on the deal altogether. Priorities are your man!
