    And I’ll keep the points I bought before Christmas…

      better watch out…… there is a thief going around and stealing MSP, I got 1600+ taken out right before the 12 days sale and still haven’t gotten anything back… Be careful of saving your points.

        I’m sorry about your account… :-/

        So, this is a way to force me to buy the full priced games… damn it! I won’t count on deals anymore, they’re being lame lastly…

      • http://twitter.com/chuponopolis Kyle

        Do you have small children? My 2 year old bought a game one time from the old dashboard when I wasn’t looking. Check your purchase history and see if that happened.

    Great deals for this week! I’ve already purchased Orcs this morning, considering South Park and Defense Grid.

    Hey Major, you forgot the Arcade releases of Amy and Choplifter HD :)

    The 360 version of Dungeon Defenders will be the third version of DD I buy, also getting Orcs Must Die.

  • Anonymous

    already got Orcs on Steam, and only game here that is interesting would be Dungeon Defenders… but recon im getting it also on Steam, because I enjoyed the demo more on that platform (like the mouse control better).

    does anyone know what “JP” stands for in “GTA IV – The Lost and Damned JP”? its more expensive than the normal DLC…

    • http://www.facebook.com/ThomasJohnDavis Thomas Davis

      i wanna know too, Google don’t seem to help on this either

    • Anonymous

      It would seem like it stands for Japan.  As in the Japan region will also have this DLC on sale?  Either that or there is a specialized/localized version of the The Lost and the Damned made specifically for Japan.

      That’s my guess.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PGXCAL5WSD62RGZVD3IOACKSZY mikey

    I dunno im still debating about Orcs must die!, its a decent game, but i still think the price is too high, id def. pick it up for 400.

    Fenix rising is the only thing i will be getting for the text 2 weeks.

    • Anthony Polito

      next two weeks not text makes no sense

        I like that was criticism you decided to give, but thanks for the correction  

  • Hugoku

    Yes! Dungeon Defenders!
    Got the GoW3 Season Pass last Dec so i’m pumped for the Fenix Rising pack.

  • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

    Good deal on Orcs Must Die, I got that!  Probably gonna pass on Dungeon Defenders for now.

    Also, cuz I’m bored, here’s Lost and Damned’s history:

    2/17/09 – Released at 1600
    8/24/09 – On sale for 1200
    11/12/10 – Price drop to 800

    1/17/12 – On sale for 400

    Please stop putting GTA IV content on sale.

    Looking for a reason to get back into GTAIV and been debating buying Lost and Damned for months now, decided against it. Will buy on the 17th though.

  • Anonymous

    Not electrified with excitement but I’ll download a couple of tower defense trials and give them a try for these prices, I guess.
