24 days, 24 games, each on sale for 24 hours.

Today's is Mirror's Edge, echoing the Steam deal the other day.

Here is a link: http://www.direct2drive.com/holiday/

There is also a contest everyday where you identify an extremely easy picture as to which game it came from, then you might win a free game.

I am hoping for Manhunt 2.

Hmmmm. Hoping for something good. That Steam weekend sale really let me down.

Someone on another forum linked me this, it SUPPOSEDLY lists all the games which are in the "contest" which are also SUPPOSEDLY the games which will be on sale. Looking at it I have to say it makes sense, but you never know. If tomorrow is The Witcher, or even another game on this image, it could be true.

Counting left to right, left to right, what is number 7 and 15 and 18?

Hopefully true, cause it means I'll finally be able to pick up Wolfenstein and Rise to Flight. (lee)

Awesome find, thanks! Number 7 is 'Rise of Flight' I think, 15 is Battlefield 2. No idea about 18.

The one you listed as Battlefiend is Arma 2. Age of Empires 3 is actually a Civ game I believe. Saboteur is actually Sims 3. I don't know if 18 is Titan Quest, I never saw that media image used for it before.

He listed Battlefield right after RE5, and right after RE5 is Arma 2.

Today's sale is The Witcher EE for half-off, $20. So it IS following the above picture.

Plan your purchases accordingly.

What an incredibly boring list of games. No wonder Steam is stomping everyone into the dirt. They actually put GOOD games on sale.

Outside of Batman and Borderlands (both of which I already owned), this past weekend had terrible sales on Steam. Steam is better, but not because of "good" games going on sale.

#18 is mirrors edge.
did a reverse image search and found a couple game covers with the image
http://xbox360media.ign.com/xbox360/image/article/900/900446/mirrors-edge-20080820034709988_640w.jpg
http://www.amazon.com/Mirrors-Edge-Xbox-360/dp/B00149PCAO
etc.
So #17 is wrong, and the reverse image search didn't work for 17.

Yup, this all is perfectly correct, the one being Civilization almost surely.

Thanks for the definitive list.

...no you're #17 is incorrect.
#18, bottom right corner is mirrors edge.

NarcissistZero
12-02-09, 08:37 PM
What are talking about? 17 he has as Mercs 2, which is correct, and 24 he has as Mirror's Edge, which is correct.

#18, bottom right corner is mirrors edge.

There are 24 games, not 18. So mirror' edge couldn't be 18, because it was the first game. So it would be 24th

So with them all identified I have to say being a Steam fanboy I don't think I will buy any of these. Only an amazingly cheap deal would persuade me.
