Yeah... I just jumped on this too. These two were actually on the top of my "When the pile is smaller" list, but for $4, I had to grab them now.

Pretty insane deal on Gamefly DD:

Spec Ops The Line AND The Darkness II (bundle) $3.99!

Use coupon code: GFDAPR20 to get the price to $3.99

Yes, you get both games for $4.

Both games are Steamworks.

Holy crap. Thanks for the heads-up! Yoink!

I took advantage too, because having over 650 games in Steam is not enough :O so, would I need to have played the first Darkness ( assuming there is one since this one is called II ) in order to appreciate The Darkness II ?

Nope, I've been enjoying it thoroughly and I never even heard of the first one until this came out. There are a decent amount of flashbacks that easily lay out the backstory. Wonderful game that I need to go back and finish.

I will say the first one's kind of worthwhile, in that it's one of those brilliantly flawed Starbreeze games (like Chronicles of Riddick). Probably not essential, though.

Animal Crossing 3DS pre-order $10 off at newegg with promo code EMCXSXV224

As usual with the codes, might have to be a member of newsletter, but gosh you should be already with the deals every week.

Steam has pre-order deals up for Zeno Clash 2. Anyone interested in getting in on a 2 pack with me? Zeno Clash was so bloody insane that I want to play the second one and the discount on a 2 pack is pretty decent.

Xbox Sale:

Dust: An Elysian Tail for 600 points
Deadlight for 600 points
Mark of the Ninja for 600 points

All 50% off.

Think this is part of a bigger sale, but everything hasn't been posted.

Ooooohh! Is this just for today? Because I don't have any of those titles and I would love to grab em.

Deadlight is so-so in my opinion but if you don't have Dust and Mark of the Ninja, stop being insane and support those devs right now! GO!

At this point, I'll probably wait for the PC version of Dust, though.

I think Mark of the Ninja was my download GOTY last year. But then again, XBLA did get Minecraft too.

Hmmm...

Tempted to grab dust and dead light for tht price. Doesn't hurt that I have points just sitting in my account.

Deadlight was ok, but I wouldn't pay more than that price. It did a lot of neat things, but it didn't do them very well.

This basically translates to "the achievements weren't very good".

I actually grabbed deadlight off steam for 3 bucks, but as I'm waiting for my replacement video card to show up, I'm itching to give it a go.

Actually they were pretty easy and I got them all in about 4 hours:)

Mainly it was that the game was very pretty and stylized, but the controls and checkpoints were pretty wonky.

Has he said there's one coming?

Dammit, Sally, should I buy it or not?

Gamefly has some nice bundles:

Bioshock 1 and Bioshock 2: $3.99 (GFWL)

Spec Ops The Line, and The Darkness II: $3.99 (Steamworks)

Borderlands 2 and XCOM Enemy Unknown: $31.99 (Steamworks)

In each deal, you get both games for that price.

Use code GFDAPR20 (for U.S.) and GFDAPR20UK (for UK) to get these prices.

Well then, looks like I'll be buying this a second time! Any reason I can get to keep supporting Dean Dodrill.

Yup, and with that I realize I missed out on buying the Darksiders bundle. Anyone got a spare Darksiders II key? I already have all the rest.

Darksiders bundle still looks to be active, at least for Gamefly UK - Sadly, I've already bought it to gift Spec Ops, however... check your PM

Are you confusing Darkness 2 with Darksiders 2?

That was it exactly. I redeemed the key without realizing it as well. Still, it's a pretty great game, I rented it on Xbox a while back, but didn't have a chance to finish. Now I do

Ahh, apologies

Feel a fool.
