    I'm just going by what happened last year.
    A big TF2 update. A week later, the Summer Camp started.
    This year, Pyromania was the update, released on the 27th.

    Beyond Good & Evil has a Metacrtic score of 84 but it was still a market flop.

    And Max Payne 3 wasn't a market flop (it's sold about 860k in 6 weeks of boxed copies, then add in digital on top of that), so I don't see how they are related.

    MP3 wasn't cheap to produce. It's hard to say if that's a good number or a bad number.

    I'm sure it wasn't but I'm sure counting digital sales it's over a million copies cold, thats a pretty good number by any standards for a game most people buy to play single player. It was 2nd in sales for the month it released (to Diablo 3).

    Despite all this Summer Sale talk, Earthworm Jim Package (1, 2, and 3D) is in sale today for $7.99.

    I'm interested but not sure how they play in keyboard. I loved 1&2 on SNES back in the day...

    At $10 or less, yes. $15? Maybe if you are a huge fan of their previous games.

    Cubeman is again in a daily deal on Steam. It's an interesting "tower" defense game where towers are replaced by cubemen soldiers that can be moved around the level.

    Rage is a good game. I really enjoyed it and consider my $64 (after tax) well spent.
