Well you could always get the disc version like I did

Some good deals today for Steam fans but nothing Steam exclusive for me except maybe Flotila, I'll have to see if the creator sells that on his website DRM-free.

I highly suggest Kane & Lynch for $5 to those who do not have it... it's a very rough around the edges game but it has a great style, good dialogue and feels like an interactive Michael Mann movie.

LOL yea. At 25GB, I would probably go retail instead. I liked the demo for TFU on PS3, but I heard it was a bad port to PC so I didn't bother. Now that console prices have dropped, maybe I will consider that.

Flotilla is DRM-free on the creator's site and on Gamersgate, for those who care. I'll pass on the Steam version, sadly.

PUT SOME STEAM EXCLUSIVES ON SALE, VALVE!

Well... ones I don't have.

I dunno, pretty much any download-only game from a real publisher. Indies usually are available DRM-free on their homepage, but stuff like Flock, Bionic Command and Rocket Knight have DRM everywhere, or are Steam only.

There are a ton of them, those are just random examples.

LOL yea it's only messed up there. If you search for the game specifically in Steam, it shows the right prices.

Haha... Valve are such screw-ups on Steam. You would think since it is the premier digital distributor they would have better quality control.

And that is not my Steam DRM dislike talking, I felt the same way when I was a big Steam fan and bought all my games there...
