    I bought Shadow Dancer. Really good conversion - game res is pretty good for an old game (has settings for 1280x960 (windowed) and 1680x1050 (fullscreen))

    There are a couple of different filter settings:
    None - No Filters at all, looks very pixellated
    Linear - looks closest to the original game (best mode to use)
    TV gives a SD CRT Screen sort of effect (obvious horizontal lines on the screen)
    Enhanced gives a blend effect so it doesn't look quite so pixelated.

    I tried to take a couple of screen captures but it captures the desktop instead :/

    This is a problem with Windows 7 (I assume you're using that) - try using a program like xfire or fraps to take screenshots instead.

    yep, win 7, unfortuanetly X-Fire crashes whenever I attempt to log in (luckily Raptr works with my X-Fire friends list but it doesn't help with screenshots) I'll give fraps a go now.

    No Filter

    TV Filter

    Linear Filter

    Enhanced Filter

    Resizing the screenshot's to fit Bit's uploader doesn't really help showing the difference between Linear and Enhanced.

    Thanks for the images, feel more temped to buy now, than wait for a sale. They look very good. Any of the games at 1080p?

    Would like to buy some of them, but not sure which, the whole pack is up for how much it would have cost to buy each individually (though they should have knocked at least few percent off).

    I was running Shadow Dancer at the fullscreen res of 1680x1050, which is the highest my monitor will support anyway (21" Dell Widescreen).

    Too bad my GPU doesn't support DX10 (it should but being the AGP version of the HD 2600, driver support was promised at a later point, and I'm sure its not out yet). Would love to try it out though.

    That is a good cheap price for Supreme Commander 2. Probably the right price given that its not too big a game mind you.

    Steam randomly throws offers left right and center, who can say? But I'm sure they usually have a big sale in summer and winter
