Check out Steam for some crazy deals. Today only sale has a bunch of stuff for 66-75% off. Apparently a ton of Valve stuff is 50% off. It's too late now, but I managed to get Portal 2 for a hair over ten bucks. The various "silent" sales are going until the 27th. Awesome time to look into buying yourself or someone else a game off Steam.

A bunch of Indie sales are out:
Indie Royale Valentine's Day Bundle. (Zeno Clash, Hoard and Lume).
India Gala bundle. (http://www.indiegala.com/). Lots of games and a Lot of indie VGame soundtracks. Includes "Greed Corp", "Bunch of Heroes", etc'. (Not very interesting games, but the price is nice and you can't beat the value).

Pay what you want, etc'.
Zeno Clash is a bit repetitive, but the art style and design are outstanding. (It's by a pair of Chilean brothers, and it's what a Jodorwsky fantasy fighting game would be pretty much).

Steam has Skyrim on sale for 33% off. (40$)

The Summer Steam sale is ongoing Insane deals to be had

First MW3 is on sale for the magic 29.99$ price point, so if you've been holding off because you could care less about the multi with BF3 to play then snap it up for seven hours of explosions which considering ticket prices means an extra two hours of two back to back Michael Bay movies.

As well the bundle deals are on sale in order of insaity

THQ for 49.99 to get most of Company of Heroes,Saints Row 3, Metro 2033, STALKER, and lots of Warhammer
The Square Enix/Edios collect to get the entire Thief Series, all of Deus Ex, all of Just Cause, all of the Hitman games and some Laura croft and heaping helping of DLC for all the above


Note the bundles are odd this time around for example the Bethesda bundle does not throw in Morrowind or Oblivion but you do get brink (ookaaay) nor do you get Fallout 3 but you do get New Vegas and Skyirm.

You can get Binary Domain on Amazon for $9.99, Steam activation. It's not a bad little game so far and worth the price.

Does it have 360 or gamepad support or do I need to use Xpadder to play it?
