The humble THQ bundle just added WH40K:Dawn of War GOTY.
BUY it you FUCKERS!!!!

(Also, Saints row 3 is surprisingly kickass. And this from someone who hasn't played a GTA game since GTA 2).

There's also a huge sale (75% discounts) on Steam "Big Picture"friendly games. (Including WH40K space marine. and Awesomenauts.)

Now you can get Metro 2033 for free if you like the Facebook page for Metro:Last Light. While they do tell you to use their installer, I've heard that the key they give you will work on Steam.

I'm surprised this happened while the bundle is still running.

Duke Nukem 3D is also free through Friday, 14 December, 14:59 GMT from Good Old Games:

Holiday Gift: Duke Nukem 3D (Win+Mac)

Santa came early!

Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition, the legendary FPS in which the Earth's greatest hero provides a steady flow of bullets and badass one-liners, is available on GOG.com, for the low price of one smile, for the next 48 hours. That's not all. For the first time in history, this supreme space-alien slaughter simulation is also available on Mac!

The Mayans have warned us: the world is in grave danger. Some think it's going to be a giant meteor, a solar storm, a super-volcano, or a lethal plague. But the gamers of planet Earth know better than that! That's right. We know the real truth. We're onto you, space-aliens. We've seen through your plot. Pretending that you don't exist, hiding your massive fleet near Uranus, and planning to strike on 12.21.12. So you think you can invade our planet and live to tell the story to your slimy bug-eyed grandmaggots? Well, think again. We've got Duke Nukem. And what have you got? Lasers? Plasma cannons? Mutant beasts? Deathrays? You make us laugh. Ha. Ha.

Have you seen Duke Nukem 1+2, the classic run-and-gun platformers? That's how the legend began. Just a few years later, its successor Duke Nukem 3D became a milestone in the development of the FPS genre, and an unquestioned highlight in its protagonist's career. Never before and never after have we witnessed such an unprecedented mix of explosive action, comedic brilliance, and sheer badassdom. In the department of pure awesomeness, Duke Nukem 3D holds the crown, and so it shall be--forever. With creative level design, memorable foes, unique weapons, and an iconic outspoken hero, this game is a true monument to gaming fun. The Atomic Edition lets you duke it out even longer, as it contains the bonus fourth episode, complete with a new weapon and previously unseen enemies!

Now you can witness all the badass FPS magnificence of Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition for free, both on Windows and (for the first time ever!) on Mac OSX, so come get some! Hurry up, though--the offer won't last FOREVER. In fact, WHEN IT'S DONE, it's done. That will be Friday, December 14, at 14:59 GMT.

Happy atomic holidays from GOG.com team!

And now for the next 24 hours GOG has what looks like all of their previous 24 hour sales going at once. Any fool who hasn't given the Witcher 2 a try should really consider dropping the $7.49.

Origin has a sale going, too, which is good for the folks like me who want to screw EA without pirating. (I never buy EA full price if I can avoid it since I don't like their business practices.) Grabbed ME3 digital deluxe for $20.

I've also got an unredeemed digital copy of Dawn of War II - Retribution available. (Bought it as a present from GameStop, then the franchise pack went on sale two weeks later so I gave the guy that instead, and GameStop won't take it back.)

^Okay, done. I just gotta find out if there's a way to get at it without the receipt; otherwise I'll have to go and find it. I'll PM you with the details after I get hold of Gamestop tech support.

GOG again. They've got a sale on their D&D games library where the more of them you buy, the more you save, up to 80% off if you buy all ten (ones you already bought from them count).

If you use Steam, PA decided to give away previous part of their game only today here:

I think 0$ would qualify as a bargain, eh? :wink:

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is 66% off on Steam for the weekend for $8.49. That's the cheapest I've ever seen it go on sale and it's probably my favorite game of 2012. If you meet the SR and have a fast internet connection it's totally worth it. Otherwise though, lag can really spell doom in Chivalry since the combat is very fast and responsive.

The Humble Weekly Bundle is also offering Alan Wake and Alan Wake's American Nightmare. The game is a real beauty on high end hardware.

Dominions 3 available at a 50% discount on Gamersgate, i.e. around $15.

If anyone ever considered buying it but was turned off by the high prices at Shrapnel Games, now is the time to get it. Shrapnel's distribution contract ended late last year and the game has been available on Desura and Gamersgate ever since.
