Half off? That's great! tomato

I just looked at the list -- some of those deals are excellent! A few of the most recent releases are included, too.

You can go on a gaming marathon! grin

Shoot, I've been trying to buy Dark Fall: Lost Souls and The Path and I keep getting a Payment Refused error. I know the card's fine because I just used it not a half hour ago. I contacted customer support and hopefully I'll hear from them soon. *crossing fingers*

I got Yoomurjak's Ring, Sinking Island, Runaway: A Twist of Fate (includes a patch), Dark Fall: Lost Souls. Had to download Yoomurjak's Ring's second file twice, first time was corrupted.

I was down to Ceville, which I'm playing, and Three Cards to Dead Time. Now back up to 11 games (counting Tales of Monkey Island DVD as 5).

There's some nice games in there smile Some that I haven't seen on the shelves yet (at least out these ways).

How many activations do you get with these?

Off topic maybe, but has Yoomujak's Ring ever released in hard copy?

I asked my family if I can take advantage of this sale and get this game for $10, but my family told me "no more buying games, but you're allowed to trade games."

cruise, it was only available in Hungary on DVD (you do know the game is not in English, only the subtitles, right?)
It is near impossible to get your hands on a copy.

Guybrush,

Anne- having the same issue- refuses my payment- both credit card that I know is fine- and my paypal account- which is also fine. Hope they get it fixed soon!

Anne, Challis3,

It may happen if you have more than 3 items in your cart.
This is a anti fraud policy. More and more eastern & chinese companies use stolen credit cards to purchase activation keys. Theses activations will be sold at a very cheap price on the internet.
We had to fight this plague.

We hope that you all enjoy the sale.

In any case, many thanks Mag, Ana and Becky for letting this community know about the offer.

Damon

Gatsbygirl -- the first 2 Darkfall games are in first person but they do NOT have 360 degree panning.

The third Dark Fall -- Lost Souls is also in first person and does have some camera movement, though not full 360 degree panning.

I think you will be fine with the first two games -- the third game is a bit more questionable, though, in terms of whether it might make you queasy.
