Yea, that has been my issue. I think I might just end up flipping a coin or something.

So ipaine, did you end up getting the superbox or x3 gold?

I decided to grab the Ikko Ikki DLC for Shogun 2 today. Was debating grabbing New Vegas, but I have plenty to keep me busy atm and it will go on sale again before the end of the year.

Well I ended up getting the x3 gold pack. I thought about it and decided with everything else I have gotten lately I will just never get to the older ones. Oh and picked up Portal 2 at the same time. And have now decided to get Fallout NV and Assassins Creed 2.

Just saw this on facebook d2d:
Direct2Drive
You know on the 4th of July when it's the last part of the fireworks show and they launch everything in one big bang? This weekend is kind of like that!

Every game on sale this weekend only will be 75% off. There will be new games posted each day so keep checking.
