Anyways, Dragon Age: Ultimate Edition is on sale for 24.97 on Impulse ImpulseDriven : Age Gate .

And steam is having a sale with new stuff each day until the 29th Welcome to Steam. Some highlights are Borderlands for 9.99, Prototype for 14.99 and Shank for 10.04. Also there are some big game packs (multiple copies of the same game). Finally every day 30 people will win the top 5 items in their wishlist so don't forget to add stuff.
I was just going to post this. Pretty decent deal for all of the DAO content including all of the (mostly kinda crappy... ;) ) downloadable content.

I've never used Impulse before... any issues ordering and downloading from a Canadian IP?

The only thing I've bought from Impulse is an SoaSE expansion, but I can say it was pretty painless.

No problems whatsoever for me so far, I have bought Mass Effect 2, DA:O, Sins and the first expansion and RF:G. The sales aren't as many/as good as on Steam but other than that Impulse is good.

Do you download an ISO, or is it still digital content? How does that work when it's a game that's tied to steam?

Picked up Chaos Rising (via DoW 2 Gold Edition) @ Steam for $13.60 and now have an extra copy of DoW 2 to gift. Any takers for 1/2 of $13.60?

Most of that stuff is still on sale lowfat. Steam refreshed their sale this morning at 10am PST though.


Has anyone played Tropico 3: Absolute power? I enjoyed Tropico 3 but I don't know if the Absolute Power addon is a good enough value to replay it.

Tied to Steam: You get a key, enter it in Steam, download the game through Steam.

The one game I got that wasn't tied to Steam I got a zip file with installer in it.

I don't know about games tied to steam, but you can get the cd key from the game list. As for other games it works the same way as steam.

Sorry folks, I've been very busy at work this week, so I haven't had a chance to post many deals.

Steam has some good deals today. Left 4 Dead 2 for $5, Supreme Commander 2 for $3.75, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light for $7.49, and Wings of Prey & Call of Duty 4 for 50% off.

Direct 2 Drive is still giving away every 5th sale free, so you could be the lucky one and win your cart.

Impulse still has Dragon Age Origins Ultimate edition on for $24.97. That includes all DLC's and the Awakening expansion. Awesome deal on a amazing RPG.
