Always wondered what the big hype was about this. Then I played the demo, bought it and spent about 20 hrs playing this in the last few days. pretty much the most polished defense game I've ever played. Very charming, and huge variety of towers/enemies/strategies to use

I debated for the longest time getting Tropico 3, but I am certainly not regretting it. Today's sale's are a little meh.

I can tell you that RUSE blows chunks. It is a strategy game designed for consoles....which means it is anything but polished.

Yeah, rule of thumb never ever ever buy strategy games designed for consoles. Or infact strategy games for consoles.

What about Starcraft?

I played the RUSE beta, I thought the concept of "bluffing" a win was really good, too bad it was poorly implemented.

The entire point is you don't buy the N64 version of Starcraft when the completely obviously superior PC verison exists.

That and SC was developed for the PC, with the console port an afterthought.

hmm i see King Arthur is dirt cheap, as is Deus Ex.

Considering I almost paid full price for King Arthur when it first came out, I may have to pick it up. From the demo, it kind of plays like a hybrid of Heroes of MM and Total War.

Also, never played Deus Ex, so this may be a good chance to give it a go from all the rave reviews I've read about.

Another one that is a really good deal today is Wings of Prey for those out there that want a flight sim. Well more arcade style flight sim but still fairly good from my understanding. It and its DLC are on sale 85% off. Only $6.75 for the both of them.

Well I got it but damn, is it ever slow downloading tonight. Not even getting half of my normal speeds.
