By Published September 17, 2009 at 2:31 am

Direct2Drive has a big 5th anniversary sale going right now over a 5 week period, with 10+ games available each week each for $5. This week is action games, but coming up are RPG/MMO, Indie, and War games. They're not announcing which games will be available in the coming weeks, but there are some good games there right now (such as Bioshock) so check it out, a lot of these games are definitely worth the $5. There are also some additional $5 games available at the bottom of the page.  One question: When D2D turns 10, will the games be $10?

Garry's famous mod is now available on Steam for only $5!  It's 50% off for the whole week.

The fact that the designers wanted to show us trees growing more than the actual gameplay doesn't bode well at all for Far Cry 2.

We're a bit late on this one - but better late than never.  Infinity Ward has released a sick new video detailing the multiplayer gameplay session. 

RIP FourTwoZero!

KotOR for $10!

By Published September 08, 2009 at 11:09 pm

Great news for the Star Wars fans! Knights of the Old Republic, one of Bioware's name-making RPGs, is now going for $9.99 on Steam. For a game released in 2003, KotOR still packs decent graphics and a hell of story. $10 for a classic RPG. Seeing as it is not a sale, Steam will most likely not raise the price again so there's plenty of time to get it.

Seven Games of Sin

By Published September 05, 2009 at 3:13 pm

With gaming consistently being targeted as a medium that can cause people to do strange and wrong things, I was thinking one day about the fact that gaming could be considered an eighth sin in the minds of most of the governments of the world. Are we really there? Is shooting computer generated monsters and enemies so bad that people consider it wrong to do? I'm half expecting people to start chanting “Guns don't kill people, Halo does!” or something along those lines. I'm afraid if it gets much worse, I’ll be abandoning all hope in mankind.

Rant over. As I sat there contemplating whether gaming could be considered a sin, I was thinking about if there are games that I have played recently that could fit the other sins – Sloth, Envy, Wrath, Pride, Greed, Gluttony, Lust – funny enough, recent releases work quite well.
