$6.75 for Cities in Motion 2 is what I was waiting for. Sold on that one.

Your link is bad. That Hotline Miami is 2/3rd off, among many other deals, is not bad.

I do apologise. Fixed now

I was looking at Dyad on GOG for $5.

FTL is $2.49. First time I've seen it below $4.99. Buy buy buy!!!

GoG are clearly trying to get my entire summer sale budget, before Steam even starts their sale. Very clever!

For some reason, I'm hugely tempted by Theme hospital.. when I know I really would never, ever play it.

25% off Company of Heros 2 with code
SECRE-TVOUC-HER25 at Green Man Games.

So, the GoG sale is touting no DRM, but is it possible that some of the games also include a Steam key? I've not used GoG much before.

No, no Steam key. They have their own download manager and you download the game directly from their site then run the installer.

Nope, the whole point of GOG is that it's no DRM, and they're their own independent store so it's all through them.

FTL on the developer's site for $2.49 (also gets you a Steam key)

Make sure you use the Steam key, too, because if you're in the Steam trading card beta, you'll get card drops that you can sell on the market for a total of about $1.20, making the net cost of the game ONE TINY DOLLAR.

I've put 80 hours into FTL. One dollar is some crazy value.

Yeah, I figured as much. Was just hoping it was closer to Amazon where you could download direct from them and also get a Steam key (in some instances).

With GoG, you just get a full game download, in a gog wrapper exe. It extracts to a folder and runs the game, no muss, no fuss. You could always 'add non-steam game' to your steam library, and launch it from steam if you wanted to.

People should be wary of buying the AMD Bioshock, Tomb Raider, Blood Dragon bundles on ebay. I just received mine, registered it, and only received a Tomb Raider steam key and a Blood Dragon Ubisoft key. There was a message that said some keys may take longer to deliver so I looked it up. It looks like people who have tried to claim keys for the last week or so are not getting Bioshock keys and are not receiving any responses from AMD regarding the issue.

That stinks. I did mine a few weeks ago and received all my keys. I haven't installed the Uplay thing yet.

It is very intrusive? I have Steam and Origin now. I set it up so neither starts at boot. I don't think I am wasting any resources, but you never know.

I haven't registered blood dragon yet but I'm pretty sure Farcry 3 also uses Uplay and I didn't find it intrusive. I just shut off the services when I'm not using them anyways.

When I install Uplay, will it tie in with ZombiU also?

That's a good question. I'm pretty sure the uPlay account is universal across all platforms as long as you registered/signed in with the same email. Maybe someone else can confirm.

Yes.

Sorry to hear you're having issues. Wonder if they ran out of keys for Bioshock?

I got mine a couple of months ago, then got the Far Cry add on later.

He, me too for some reason.
Also tempted by the 'Definitive dungeons and dragons'.

This is so much worse than Blu-ray re-releases.

I'll speak up for Defender's Quest from the indie developer thing. It's a tower defense, but your towers are all Heroes, with their own skill trees, etc. Got a good 30 hours out of it, and it was a bit different from the usual fare. Looking forward the a sequel!

Theme Hospital is an awesome ride. It does get a bit repetitive, but it's still awesome. Y'all should get it if you have the interest.

Theme Hospital is the game that burned my wife out on video games. She was obsessed with it and played it addictively and then lost a bunch of hours to a crash.

What Q is saying is it's an awesome game! Until you need therapy.

That's exactly what I'm saying.
