Direct2Drive is having a sale. 10 Games every Monday for the next 5 weeks will be $5 each.
This week:

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
GRAW2
Civilization 4
Far Cry
Silent Hunter 3
Call of Juarez
Empire Earth Gold
Sid Meier's Railroads
X-COM Complete
The Settlers Heritage of Kings


Nice list but unfortunately Chaos Theory probably still has the Starforce crap on it :(. Civ4 is tempting but it's not a great deal if you eventually like the game enough to want to buy the expansion packs. The complete Version for $40 which I hear is DRM free.

Can't wait to see what some of the deals are in the next few weeks. This list of games doesn't interest me (already own the ones I care about on it), but hopefully some good deals to come.

They removed the Starforce on Steam, maybe they did on D2D too.

They did? Well I sent in a support ticket to D2D to find out for sure. I hope they did I'd like to play Chaos Theory, I think I might either have skipped that one or rented it on a console but if I did I am sure I never finished it.

I'm thinking about Xcom: Complete. Will those game have any problems with W7?

Edit: Went ahead and bought the package from the US for $5.75, the buggers use DosBox emulation! :) It's all fine though, at least it works nice enough...

GRAW and GRAW 2 are completely different on PC... more like the original. No AA and no way to force it, though.

I got a quick reply from one of their techs asking for more info. So I sent them more info and haven't heard anything more so far.

OK I got another email from D2D support and they say Chaos Theory has no DRM.
Thank you for the updated information. This title is DRM free, which means that there is no protection on it.

Bought it today and just installed it. It looks clean, no need to reboot the PC after I installed it, no driver loaded or showing up in device manager, and the SF driver wasn't listed on the files it installed on my system in comodo defense+. So I am happy :).

Hmm... Riddick: Dark Athena for only $5 is pretty cool.

I've never purchased a game with D2D. What kind of DRM and limitations to you have to deal with and are they properly patched up?

If I want to install this game in 10 years and D2D is no longer around, will it work or does it have to contact their server to install the game?

The games have to unlock by a code they provide... if their servers are down then you can't play. Also I believe they have a 3 install limit but usually a quick email gets you more installs (I went through 6 installs with Oblivion thanks to mods breaking the game).

Might pick up Saints Row 2... can't go wrong for $5. :o

Install limits can eat my ass. :p

Its not like I'll have a chance to play it any time soon anyway.

Damn good deal. Just bought Bioshock, the only game I'm interested in that isn't region restricted :p

You can probably use the code for Steam? Coz retail SR2 are accepted.

Oh awesome, I wonder if that would work with CoR: Dark Athena.

No, Only very few 3rd party titles can be registered with Steam.

I didn't know the last Silent Hill was a Steam game... interesting. Gonna try and find that cheap on ebay.

The tages 3 Activation limit still makes me not want to buy Dark Athena even for $5, but it's $5 so I am just going to buy it cause I want to play through it since I never played either Butcher Bay or DA and I liked the Riddick movies. $5 is about the most I'd ever pay for a game that had a 3 non revocable activation limit. I thought Atari was promising to remove the activation limits shortly after release, so anyone know what happened to that promise of theirs?
