    I got DA2 for a tenner about 10 days ago (play.com) and it arrived in time to get ME2 free as well. So at the equivalent of £5 I was willing to give it a go.

    Contrary to what I thought when I tried the demo I must admit I'm really enjoying it atm. Maybe it's because my expectations were lowered. Yes, the areas can be a little repetitive but so far the missions have been pretty varied and the story is strong.

    Is it as good a DA:O? I would say it is *different* from DA:O. It's more like mass effect in the dragon age world. Certainly it is more accessible, easier, and it is less of a classic RPG than DA:O. BUT if you enjoyed ME2 more than ME1 then I suspect you'll really like DA2.

    That's why God invented the Xbox 360 USB controller. ;)

    Grr. I'm still waiting for 'Mass Effect' day. If they're cheap enough I'll buy them so I don't have to deal with Ea's online service - it's okay, it's just no Steam.

    Would have bought Sim City 4 if it was Mac as well.

    Just noticed the "EA Week" on STEAM and that I missed out on Dragon Age day. What exactly did I miss out on, pricewise? :)

    Dragon Age II £22.49
    Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition £12.49
    Dragon Age: Origins £7.49
    Dragon Age: Origins Awakening £9.99

    DA2 was pretty pricey considering what it retails for, but the Ultimate Edition was a bargain.

    So today is Mass Effect day:

    Mass Effect @ £2.50
    Mass Effect 2 @ £9.99
    Mass Effect 2 Digital Deluxe Edition @ £14.99

    Think I might pick both ME and ME2 up. Have played through ME on 360 but would quite like to play it on PC now my computer can handle graphics again, and so may as well get ME2 at the same time :D

    I hope they do a recap of all the deals again at the end of the week.
    Gutted I missed out on NFS:Undercover. Also want to get Sims 3 for the better half.

    Thanks for the update, peeps! A bit pricey considering what I could buy the disc versions for, but might've sprung for DA:O or DA:O:UE.

    And they lost me again. Was hoping for a good deal on ME2, but I can get the disc version of ME2 just as cheap. If ME2:DDE included some of the DLC leading up to ME3 I might be interested. Alas...

    Incidentally, the ME2 prices seem identical in both Euro and GBP, which actually makes them a bit cheaper in Euro.

    Hmm, having just got ME2 free I'm tempted to buy ME1 and play both through. I originally played it on the 360 though, and I remember thinking the buggy would be difficult to control with mouse/keyboard.

    Of course, the other thing is whether it would work properly on Windows 7 64bit. Anyone know?

    The buggy is very easy to control using keyboard and mouse. At 75% off you'd be daft not to get ME1 on STEAM! :)

    Works fine. I got on a previous sale (still haven't completed it) and ran it on win 7 x64 fine.

    Damn, now you've really tempted me.

    The question is, do I really have time to play it. My current backlog of games I've not played yet includes:

    Napoleon Total War
    Civ4: Colonization & Beyond the sword
    Batman Arkham asylum
    Bully
    GTA4 & both expansions
    The Orange Box (all of it)
    Borderlands (just started)
    Stalker
    Left 4 Dead 2
    Counter Strike
    Bad Company 2 (about 3 hours into onto the campaign)
    Age Of Empires 3 complete
    Just Cause 2 (a few hours in)
    Burnout Paradise
    Mass Effect 2
    Dragon Age 2 (about a third of the way through)
    All of the games from the recent Humble indie bundle

    And that's just the PC games! I've also got a few PS3 and Wii games to at least try.

    Looking at that lot, I can't see how I'm going to have time to eat, never mind work!

    And yet, I'm still tempted to buy ME1 and play it through again. Arrggh, what's wrong with me?
