Firstly. TF2 is on sale this weekend again for 50% off if you are one of the rare person who hasn't gotten it in another earlier sale. Secondly, this update introduces several new community made items, trading, and a micropayment system in a new game economy. It is a bit hard to explain or summarize. Link to full Valve F.A.Q. here. Worth reading to see how Valve intends on working micropayments for the first time ever into one of their games.[/p] Source Team Fortress 2 Normal price = $19.99 Sale price = $9.99 50% off Game Info Genre: Action Developer: Valve Publisher: Valve Release Date: Oct 10, 2007 Languages: English*, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French*, German*, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian*, Simplified Chinese, Spanish*, Swedish, Traditional Chinese * languages with full audio support Metascore (metacritic.com) = 92/100 Steam is having their Weekend Deal again. This weekend it's the Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalker Complete Pack is 50% at $17.49 (or $16.46, see Note 1 below). Note 1: For some reason, it is actually cheaper to buy the core game, the two expansions, and Deck Collection individually ($16.46) than it is to buy the Complete Pack (which consists of all the same items.) Note 2: All the game's content can be purchased through only buying the core game and the two expansions for $9.97. The DLC only unlocks pre-existing content and modifies in-game graphics. Note 3: All of the individual items contained in the Complete Pack are also on sale individually.[/p] Source Magic: the Gathering - Duel of the Planeswalkers Normal price = $34.99 Sale price = $17.49 50% off (CHEAPER if purchased individually for some reason. $16.46) Game Info Genre: Strategy Developer: Stainless Games Ltd Publisher: Wizards of the Coast LLC Release Date: Jun 15, 2010 Languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish Metascore (metacritic.com) = 69/100 Bought TF2 after waiting patiently for another sale, rounding out my cheap Orange Box (paid $18.80 total). Enjoying it a bit, though I'm sure I'm gonna like it more as I suck less. On the fence about buying M:tG. Loved the actual card game, but I've been spending too much lately... Maybe I'll just get the core game... Either way, you folks should get in on the cheapness while you can.
