Today's update has been added into the deal description

Some decent prices but it's a shame the US prices are much better ($5 instead of £5) and include the recent Chronicles of Riddick which is missing from the UK offers.

Are you serious? 5$? They can go shove it then at that exchange rate, Fcukin' Treasure Island :roll:

Forgive me if I'm being dim, but is Bioshock UK the full version of the game? Seems almost too good to be true to be getting such a recent game for a fiver?

I paid £3.49 for it on Steam a while back so its actually more than feasible

some good prices

You can register the Saints Row 2 serial they give you on Steam too.

It's not that recent, the second one is out very soon if I remember correctly. Five pounds is still a good price though.

Yes Bioshock was released over 2 years ago, Bioshock 2 is a 2010 game (Modern Warfare 2's Christmas release has forced many publishers to postpone their games' releases)

Is it only Frontlines: Fuel of War and the Empire Earth games which you can play online?

Wow, are they thinking THAT much about the success of Modern Warfare 2? I know the original was considered to be one of the best games ever, but for publishers to postpone their own games due to a release of a sequel is impressive!

Or do they all think that most console owners can only afford one game per season?

With MW2 raising the RRP, one game per season could very well become reality if they keep going upwards...

Is Halo 2 for a fiver a possibility?

It's not an RPG, indie game, or EA game, so not in this sale.

Feck me, thats extortionate!! I see what you mean though, only a select few could look at more than a handful of brand new games at that sort of price. I guess the rest of us should stick with hotukdeals!!

That's brilliant, thanks for posting

Your point? Just buy from the US site. I just did (Bioshock) and it went through fine.
Paid via paypal to avoid any nasty exchange loading.

well, this weeks UK available games on the US site are:

Assassin's Creed Director's Cut
Elven Legacy
Titan Quest Bundle
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
PlanetSide®: Aftershock
Eve Online
Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
though the last 3 are online games, so perhaps a UK version would be better?

plus US etc. only
Neverwinter Nights 2
Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir
Drakensang: The Dark Eye

Don't pay £5 for a 14 day free trial of Eve online! Just download it free from the official website!

you get 30 days on D2D for a fiver

I was thinking of buying this game Eve Online untill I saw how much it costs each month for online gaming.

You can also use the in-game money you make, to buy your game time cards too.
