Anno 2070 has the evil Ubisoft DRM, though.
If you mean the always-on DRM, it does not. It has an online component that can go down, and you'll get less functionality in the game when the servers are down, but you can still play. However, it does use online authorization and you can only authorize on three machines total with no way to revoke authorizations.
Ubisoft has multiple flavors of evil DRM.
If you are buying that Indie Royale pack just for Hard Reset, which is a perfectly sensible course of action, do yourself a favor and check out DLC Quest too. Super funny. If you've played the flash game Achievement Unlocked then you've already heard the main joke, but it's a solid little game. Be sure to talk to the shepherd.
Impulse (nee Gamestop) is having a March Madness sale on a variety of titles.
Some of the 50% off games:
Batman: Arkham City
The Darkness II
Saints Row The Third
Just so's you know, it's the other way around. "née" refers to the name at birth/inception.
Née, said the horse, pedantically.
I thought the knights said that.
I don't know, I've only ever read that word. If you know, please pedanficate.
Whoops, I did indeed reverse that. I'm actually surprised they're still using the impulsedrive.com URL, actually.
But I got the link right!
I guess the knights actually say "ni"!
So what does
Elyscape say, then?!?!
Edit: sorry, guess I am going for the drunken cheevo tonight, no more bargain thread
I SAY NAY, SIR

UNLIKE UNLIKE UNLIKE
The Steam Daily Deal for March 17 is not a mug of green beer, but Railworks 3: Train Simulator 2012. What's even better, Steam will pay you $21 for taking it off their hands!
(this has since been corrected)
In actuality it's going for $7 (80% off) and its Trains vs. Zombies DLC is $1.69 (66% off).
-$21 almost makes up for the cost of the DLC. OK, not really.
I'm holding out for a discount on Fall of the Samurai before it comes out. Even a 10% would probably tip me over.
Steam Daily Deal for Sunday, March 18 is Peggle Complete for $5.09 (66% off). It includes Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights. I got the free Peggle that came as part of some Valve promotion and enjoyed it but never quite got the mad allure it has for some people but I do not judge so here is lots of cheap Peggle for everyone.
Steam Daily Deal for Sunday, March 19 is SPAZ for $2.49. The "expansion" patch just dropped on steam as well so if you don't already have it you should really get it.
I have SPAZ in my backlog. I wonder how messed up it would make me to go out buy an expansion separately for a game in my backlog, only to then put the expansion in my backlog too, for an indefinite amount of time.
Well worry no more because the "expansion" is free!
I bought Fallout 3 on Steam about 6 months after it was released when it was sale for like $30. Didn't get around to even thinking about playing it for like another 6 months, and by that time convinced myself that I should really have the DLC, which just made me not play it for even longer. Eventually GOTY edition was on sale, and I bought that. So at that point I had two copies of Fallout 3 in my library. Finally installed and played that awhile later, and didn't really like it. So now I have two copies of Fallout 3 in my Crap category in my Steam library.
Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai now $19.79! @ GreenManGaming
This is a Steamworks game, and stand alone, so Shogun 2 isn't needed for this expansion.
Zombie Highway looks interesting in today's free iOS games.
Steam's Midweek Madness is Total War: Shogun 2 for $7.50 (75% off).
Steam Daily Deal for the first day of spring (March 20) is Spellforce 2: Gold Edition for $3.74 (75% off).
Portal 2 is currently $9.99 (50% off) for the three people who have not yet purchased it. Various bundles of the same are also 50% off.
Origin is offering $10 off the standard edition of Star Wars: The Old Republic, bringing it back down to the price EA and Activision used to charge for PC games. Woo.
I am kinda confused on the Spellforce deal. They have the gold Ed. for 3.74 but you can guy the gold and Plat Ed. for 4.99. Wouldn't the Plat Ed. make the gold one obsolete?
Spellforce: Platinum Edition (also on sale for 75% off) includes the original game and its expansions but does not include Spellforce 2. To get everything from Spellforce 1 and 2 you buy The Spellforce Universe for $4.99.
Spellforce 2 is Gold. Spellforce 1 is Platinum.
Amazon Local is offering up $10 gift cards for $5 today.
Can only buy one, sadly.
According to this page Mass Effect 3 is $40, but when you go to the product page it's back up to $60. Maybe the discount is applied at checkout?
EDIT: Out of stock.
A Mac deal for a change: Neverwinter Nights 2 is $0.99 in the Mac App Store. Looks like just the original game though, no expansions.
Steam daily deal is The Bard's Tale for $4.99 (50% off). This is the mid-2000s version developed by inXile and doesn't seem to have been very well received, but I've a also seen some positive comments about it too.
Anyone know if it's 360 controller friendly?
I really want to do this, but I have no clue if it will sync up with Steam and go into my library. Can someone walk me through this/reassure me/give me a warm hug?
Steamworks means that it'll give you a key that you plug into Steam to add it to your library.
oh thank god
TEN MINUTES TO GO OH SHIT
