Big Deal on the Internet

That's a really awesome feature right there, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of it!

Would be nice to have a "Deals from overseas" section for our UK fellows & Beyond.

Daystar Clarion:
That's okay, I'll just be over here.

In the UK.

Not getting fabulous deals.

*sniff*

Rock Paper Shotgun would be good for you to check out on Fridays. They're UK based so that should help.

The solutions simple. We go to America, steal all the deals and bring them back to the UK and sell them at reasonable prices! There are no flaws to the plan.

But you'll come visit us first, right?

*big, sad eyes*

My wallet...my poor, poor unemployed wallet...QUIT TEMPTING ME, ESCAPIST!!

Of course we will! We'll bring you "we're gonna steal ya deals pie!" It's that little pinch of thievery that makes it delicious.

We don't dump tea into harbours. It's clearly who's better. ;)
Besides, surely it takes more decorum to march about with drums than to be all sneaky?
Lastly it's not stealing, it's calling in a debt. :P

Fine, you can be in charge of distracting them, if you succeed in getting the taxes and the tea I'll give you some cake.

Excellent.

Here's forty shillings on the drum for those who volunteer to come
To 'list and fight the foe today - Over the hills and far away

O'er the hills and o'er the main, Through Flanders Portugal and Spain
King George commands and we obey - Over the hills and far away.

We may have strayed a little off topic...

Dammit man you just can't go around claiming countries we once had, because if we could I'd head on over to Africa and become a warlord!

half-price deal on Battlefield 3 Premium download.

So I go to check, it's only 5%, not 50%. Awesome.

:\

Oh gawd, I literally bought Disgaea 4 a week ago for like 26 bucks. Ah well, it's not like it was a 20 dollar difference or something.

Nice new feature. It's nice to know what sales are happening without having to browse excessively.

Why do you think I threw a link to free software in the comments.

I think it's also worth mentioning that Darksiders 2 is now 17$ and Hero Academy is 2.5$ on steam.

Edit: looks like Darksiders 2 is 17$ on amazon as well now.

Where was this post yesterday and the day before? I mean that literally, I don't remember it being on the front page. Missed out on a free game for not seeing it :(

Yup, I'm pretty sure it wasn't. Good column, keep doing it, but it's just annoying to tell us about a free game we could've gotten two days ago.

Except that apparently some people saw it. How'd y'all see it?

I must say, this is incredible. You can save up over a $100 and way more if you're buying a few things. Thank you for taking the time to set all of this up, I do appreciate it. However, aw... despite being American myself, I feel the British friends of mine deserve this too! Then again, it's not your guy's fault just how the business rules are in the world you have to follow.

Ah, so this is what happens when Alloy acquires the escapist. I may be wrong--it may be all in good intent, but when I first started writing in the industry, this was the sort of thing you got paid big money to write. Granted it's rather comprehensive, so I am not calling it 'bad' at all.

I enjoy this new section!

If I had money, I'd buy a gaming computer right now cause I really want one but I'm ignorant about which one to buy! :D

Play-SC.com

Better deals on almost every PC game listed, got Borderlands 2 for only $26 two weeks ago. Also I'm pretty sure prices are for all countries, but don't quote me on that one.

Great, the Escapist becomes the latest* website to make ads seem like articles. Great job.

*ArsTechnica is doing this do, which I hate because I love Ars so much.

At the end of the day I guess its not as bad as the captchas that make me type in corporate slogans, "Its very delicious!"

getoffmycloud:
Why the hell is the list price of Too human still $20 it wasn't worth that much at launch.

A bigger question is why it is being sold at all as Silicon Knights have been ordered to recall and destroy all discs.

Andy Shandy:
Love the idea, unfortunately can't take advantage of it.

Damn you and damn your deals. =P

The curse of being UK based, luckily I don't want any of these games.

Well I bought the ones I wanted already =/
