Ryse for PC is on Gamestop's US PC downloads site for $9.99.

If I had a US card or paypal I'd probably pick it up. If you happen to have the option and have been waiting for a sale on it, now's your chance!

Is it any good? I've seen some pretty bad reviews of it.

Also: Downloads to U.S. addresses only

Yeah, there used to be a easy way around that on the Gamestop purchase, but I can't remember it.

As for if it's good?.... Well consensus is it's pretty and flawed. I really like ancient Rome and it sounds like the biggest flaws are a shallow and repetitive combat system, so I'll probably just power through it for the great scenery and settings and to see how the plot is.

The PC version got rid of the microtransactions and comes with all the DLC which is supposed to help cover a few of the games flaws. I think at sub $10 it might be a good game. For 60-70 there's no way I'd buy it.

Shadow of Mordor is 50% off on Bundlestars at $24.99. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor The DLC season pass and premium editions are also 50% off.

This was my 2nd favorite game of 2015 and is well worth the money in my opinion.

I guess you meant 2014, but what was your favorite game then?

Hmm, I remembered 2014 but wrote 2015. Dragon Age: Inquisition was my favorite game of last year.

Thanks man. After a couple years of forcefully ignoring games (to resist the temptation of upgrading my still-good-for-work machine), I have a lot to catch up on.

Sega's having a big sale on Steam and there's actually some pretty impressive deals;

Alien Isolation for $13.74
Save 75% on Alien: Isolation on Steam

Valkyria Chronicles for $7.47
Save 66% on Valkyria Chronicles? on Steam

Bunch of Total War games, Sonic etc.

Even Crazy Taxi (but without the Original Soundtrack, so no ' Hey, hey come on over and have some fun with Craaaazy Taxi' 'Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!' )
That game harvested so many loonies from me back in the day.
