I was going to say this. It's an underrated gem.

Just remember to stop playing once you've finished the story. Trying to 100% the maps will sour the game very quickly, especially once you unlock enough perks to clear entire bases risk/consequence-free.

YMMV. I actually platinumed it on the PS3, and had a lot of fun doing it. The closing line was ironic for me because I'd already cleared 100% of the map before doing the final mission.

Just picked it up for $4 from Gamefly, so that I'm not hostage to the vagaries of Sony's backward compatibility.

I picked up Borderlands 2. It wasn't as cheap as I was hoping, but my friend has been wanting me to play with him, so $30 isn't too bad.

Two friends and I just picked up BL2 a couple of weeks ago so that we'd have a co-op title to all play together. We're having the best time we've had in any Xbox game together so far. It's well worth 30 bucks.

It's one of the few games that gives you the option to skip the requirements for two perks (one silver and one gold). The gold vehicle perk requires you to collect every vehicle in the game, including some that aren't unlocked until the very end of the game and post-game. If you spend your freebies on those, you can roll around in tanks for most of the game.

Newegg has XBL 12-month cards on sale, again. $34.99

I grabbed The Saboteur for $3.99, despite already owning it on the Xbox.
I remember it not clicking with me on the console, but I am fresh off Sleeping Dogs and part way through Assassin's Creed II on the PC, so this sounds like it will be a good fit right now.

For Visa users only, unfortunately. Still, I bit on the deal, but have to sit on the code until I can unpack the 360.

That sure is a lot of $35 offers on XBL subscriptions.

New Indie Gala bundle is up, worth for earth defense force alone. If you pick it up, I'll coop it with you, as no one seems to have the damn game around me.

Does anyone know if it supports local coop on a PC? It looks like the PS3 version may but I want to be sure.

Xbox 360 version of Tomb Raider is $45 + free shipping from Tanga.com for the next 24 hours.

I did some digging and found an old article on The Escapist complaining that the PC versions doesn't have split-screen coop. Bummer, because my kids would have loved that!

Also, the PC version has a 30 fps lock but it looks like there are guides to up that to 60 fps if you look around the web.

Yeah the pc version doesn't have local which makes me really sad. Did not know about the frame lock though.

Looks like these are digital codes, which ( for me ) is even better!

I have a spare Dungeon Defender key if someone wants it. PM me, and if you've got something for trade, coolness, if you don't, well, no biggee. =)
Key has now been claimed!

Both links are 404. I saw this earlier on SlickDeals and jumped on the 32GB, but then they went OOS and maybe have taken the page down.

The real question is... did you manage to pick one up?

Steam seems to be taking advantage of the SimCity meltdown.

All Tropico 4 content 75% off.

Best deal I saw was the Tropico 4 Collector's Bundle for $9.99.

(Tropico 4: Steam Special Edition, Tropico 4: Plantador DLC, Tropico 4: Junta Military DLC, Tropico 4: Quick-dry Cement DLC, Tropico 4: Modern Times, Tropico 4: Pirate Heaven DLC, Tropico 4: Megalopolis DLC, Tropico 4: Vigilante DLC)

I own the Gold Edition on 360, but this will be my first Steam purchase for the new laptop I've got on the way.

What a ripoff. I got a high-speed 32GB micro-SD card for my Galaxy tablet from Amazon for $17. Sony's proprietary crap is a load of...well, crap.

How much better is Tropico 4 than 3? Never played either. Wondering if I should drop $2.50 vs $10 to try it?
