$9.99 for Assassins Creed sounds good to me. I actually never picked this one up.

It's tempting to buy AC for $10. I played through the PS3 version and though it is rather repetitive it was kind of fun.

I know Assassin's Creed says it requires a dual core CPU, but what happens when you try to run it on a single core? Does the game just refuse to run?

I might get CAWX if it's a good sale.

Probably longer load times and really low FPS is my guess.

The complaining about euro pricing on Steam is really annoying at this point. Not as much here I guess, but on the Steam forums I have to read a complaint about it ever 2 or 3 posts.

Games have always cost more in Europe... chill out.
