    To be honest I didn't expect Spelunky to be discounted so fast (got it on release) but that's a great price for those who waited. Any thoughts on those Darksiders and Sleeping Dogs DLC's?

    The music in Spelunky is great. For the I Am Alive players, is it worth just playing it through in survivor mode from the off?

    Are these 'sale' games open to non-gold subscribers like me?

    Also...they don't end today do they? Me wants Daytona and Spelunky.

    Yep, sales are open to Free users (apart from I Am Alive, which is only for Gold).

    Sales will end Monday night/Tuesday morning.

    Apparently, there's also going to be an extra '1-Day sale' this Friday & the following Monday.

    \o/

    With a bit of luck they'll have some stupidly priced stuff that I have to buy even though I know I'll never play them. I need more hard drive space. Can I buy a slim 250gb hdd and just swap over the caddies?

    I would say yes - I certainly played it in Survivor from the off, and while it means a slightly unforgiving combat curve at the beginning, and, I think, you get less stamina for doing stuff, it is all eminently manageable, and actually serves to increase the tension and atmosphere imho.

    Good tip. I typically start on default difficulty these days, but do enjoy a challenge - Halo Reach Legendary Alone achievement still has pride of place in my gaming memories for this gen - so I'll take agparrot's advice and start IAA on the toughest setting. Can always restart if it's proving too much :/

    I checked last night and couldnt see a tab for all the deals. I found them manually though. Is it just me being blind or has it not been properly advertised yet? Left 4 dead 2 is 11.99. What a bargain

    Interesting if they are the 1 day sales.

    If QC is a good/silly price, I may very well be tempted.

    Any thoughts on Harley Quinn's Revenge' and 'Leviathan' DLCs. I have both B:AC and ME3 still to play but may be tempted to get the DLCs if they're on the cheap...

    When does Leviathan kick in? I'm playing ME3 at the minute but I haven't made it very far yet. I don't want to restart, but if it's very cheap and integrates well I could be tempted.

    I played it at the very end before the final mission. Thought it was decent. Really added to the backstory.

    Spelunky and I Am Alive for me.

    Both straight onto the backlog pile, although I'll probably start Spelunky quite soon as I'm lacking in 'just 5 more minutes' type games at the moment.

    Will probably pick up Leviathan regardless, and maybe Harley Quinn and Quantum Conundrum depending on the price.

    The ONE-DAY-ONLY deals appear to be live. I'm picking up Mass Effect 3: Leviathan for 400 points, personally. :)

    Sweet, I'll be grabbing the Arkham City and ME3 ones.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Played the demo of I Am Alive. Really liked it so grabbed it this morning. Will probably never play it again.

    2000 points for 12.85 is a bargain, right..? Instant delivery.

    This sale hasn't helped my backlog.

    Already got Spelunky, loved the SC5 demo, seriously tempted by Magic 2013 (+ expansion) and would also like Quantum Conundrum at that price...DAMN!

    On the flip side, I've just bashed through IAM, which I thought was a solid 4/5. Played on the 'Survivor' setting which had its enjoyably challenging moments. Think I was going for too much of a perfect run - restarting after pretty much every wasted bullet. When the apocalypse comes, I'm going to be a proper hoarder... ;P

    It's not too insanely hard, but I think you'd probably enjoy the story more if you played on Normal. Achievement whores (like me) will need to play on the top difficulty, however.

    Enjoyed it enough for a second play through, which I may try on Normal to see if it's a less stressful experience :0)

    That is a bargain but, having registered to get them, I've just been advised that customers who haven't bought a boxed/physical delivery product from ShopTo are not allowed to get digital download goods. Just ridiculous really.

    Annoyingly, I'm sure I've bought something from them before (a long time ago, admittedly), but don't think I set up an account.

    Well, they've got the Hitman Collection on PC for 3.85 and Crackdown on 360 for 3.85. :p

    Yes, their security is a bit tight, but once you've purchased a couple of items it's all smooth sailing! Well, for boxed products, at least. Their PC downloads have had a few problems, apparently. There's a whole Shopto thread. I'm surprised you've been at EG so long without using them!
