Likely just a promotional sale with FFXIV coming this September. A way to make money off of people waiting with no MMO in the interim.

I've never really understood why I should pay for a game AND for a monthly subscription.

In the defense of some games, you often do get more content as time goes on. It comes down to one's personal opinion as to whether the additional content is enough to warrant the cost, but it is there. It's more like a guaranteed and routine (and often required) DLC which you pay for via a subscrition. The important thing to remember is that you aren't just getting the original game and paying for it over and over again as many people are eager to believe.

I'd just question FFXI at this stage in its life. No doubt it'll be supported still, but don't expect anything new and revolutionary coming from such an old game, particularly with its "sequel" being so close.

50% OFF all Paradox Interactive games.

33 games/packs/DLC to choose from.

I'll probably get slapped for saying this but they published a game called Rise of Prussia. And to me, that would compare to The Battle of Bognor Regis ...

I went through the list and I have literally never heard of any of these games.

Anyone want to speculate on when the next big Steam Sale will be?

By the way, you get Mafia for free if you pre-order Mafia II now.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.. if I thought I had enough time to play them both before leaving for Uni I'd be buying it

I'm sure it's been listed already but Alien Swarm is now free:

It's a shame they aren't handing out the original Red Alert for Free on Steam.
