I'm going to miss the five dollar sales at D2D - really, they ought to price at least one game for $5 EVERY Monday, then I would be a happy man. LOL!

But for five dollars I got:

Riddick: Assault On Dark Athena - for five dollars! (And now it's back up to $40 again).
Bioshock - sweet deal for a fiver.
Elven Quest - this game is exactly like Panzer General; it's a wonderful game; and there's DLC coming out in October, November, and December. If Elven Quest is still selling for five dollars then I highly, highly recommend it. It's a very addictive turn-based war game with some pretty nice looking visuals.

Holy toledo - you hit the mother load!

I'm so pleased to see that you bought Elven Legacy. We Panzer General fanatics finally have our Panzer General back because of this game. (I also bought Fantasy Wars off Ebay, because apparently it was the game that came before Elven Legacy.)

The amazing thing about Elven Legacy is that there's actually a story - and during the game, the hero characters will talk to one another (adding a narrative really makes you care about your pieces on the map). Not in a million years would I ever have come up with that idea. I also love the 'side-quests' in which you're often rewarded with a new unit for having liberated it from a village that's off to the side. Great game, Elven Legacy. (And now I can't wait for the first DLC - Ranger Quest, will be available on the 20'th).

Drakensang, and NWN 2, at five dollars apiece, are also great, great deals, as is Civ 4 for five dollars.

Wow, you really got lucky there. Those games will last you right through this year and well into the next. So for $55, about the price of one game, you got 11 amazing games. Jesus.

Nothing :(

Most of the sales were regionally restricted. Apparently bytes flowing from one part of the world on the internet mean less than the bytes flowing from another.

I bought Elven Legacy because it's the same engine as my Game of the year 2007 (??) Fantasy Wars....and yeah of course back then Panzer General, whereas i still have Fantasty General running in a dos box.

Frontlines: Fuel of War. spent about an hour playing it before i corrupted the install trying to patch it. haven't bothered to reinstall yet, probably will in the future though.

Bioshock and STALKER are by far the best deals IMO. i would have grabbed them if i didn't already own them.

As it turns out, Fantasy Wars just arrived in the mail this morning.

I bought Elven Legacy for five dollars and raved about it, and somebody said to me, well, if you like Elven Legacy so much then buy Fantasy Wars.

As soon as I bought Fantasy Wars - the makers of Elven Legacy announced three separate DLC campaigns, one in October, one in November, and one in December. Each DLC will be as long as Elven Quest itself. The three DLCs will revolve around Rangers, Magicians, and Sieges, and each will feature 2 new heroes.

All of this, along with Fantasy Wars, will keep me going for a long time to come. It's funny, because just this past summer I was saying to a friend of mine how much I miss the old General games from SSI.

I only bought company of heroes gold, stalker, and titan quest gold. I considered buying these games when they were new. 5 dollars each is insane.

I haven't had time to load even one of them yet, and it's unlikely I'll be able to play more than half of them... but maybe one of the other people who use my comp can play :)

I was surprised myself when I saw it for $5. Where I live it's selling for $50, and I had been waiting for it to drop down to $30. At $30 I was going to buy. I had to look twice when I saw that it was selling for $5.

I'll probably get around to playing it sometime next year.

Risen has got me right now, and I'll probably finish it. Then the five year wait will finally be over and Dragon Age will be upon us (hold all my calls, please.) And after that... Assassin's Creed 2, Resident Evil 5... etc. etc.

I was tempted to get World in Conflict Gold, but I would've had to beat the entire game again just to access the expansion content...

Drakensang is an incredibly good RPG.

I'm going to have to give the nod to Risen (because as far as RPGs go, Risen is just a damned good old school RPG, with a massive amount of soul) - but Drakensang was the RPG that got me through the summer. I loved that game.

For five dollars Draknesang is a steal (and I believe that it's still not too late to buy it if you haven't already).

All the above for $5 ea.

In the past I've gotten Trine which is a great game and Assassins Creed Director's Cut.

BioShock

I wish I hadn't gotten PoP:TTT, since the StarForce copy protection caused the game to not run, plus it borked Vista, forcing me to go back to a restore point before it would successfully boot again.

On the flipside, BioShock was one hell of a game... Worth $5 at least ten times over. :D
