    *Changed thread title to cover other games as well as bargains, also cleared up Niits reply spew  :)*

    Every now and then you come across a good deal on games, thought id post this one thats now on sale. Its AudioSurf. I bought this one a while back, great indie game that uses a music track of your choice, and makes a game out of it. Theres a demo out too.

    Its currently on sale for $2.49!  :o (£2 inc vat / about €2 too)

    The Left 4 Dead demo is now out, looks to be one of the hits of the year, you can get it through Steam. But, its only available for the next 6 days, after that point it will be deactivated to coincide with the games release, so try it now, zombies!, brains! and cookies*!

    Generally, free web browser games tend to be of crap quality, but not this one, oh no.

    Minotaur in a China Shop has been closely followed by the great gaming blog Rock Paper Shotgun for quite a while. It does require a quick download of their software, but its all safe and clean. Passed a lot of time at work today :)

    The only other 2 web browser games ive ever bookmarked i posted in the shoutbox a few days ago when someone said they we're bored at work. They are Boomshine which is just brilliant yet simple and Music Catch, the music is just so relaxing  :)

    Other than using Steam for games, ive been using Good Old Games since its beta last year, bought a fair few old titles from them, all 'tweaked' and ready to use on modern systems, great stuff.
    Anyway, Duke Nukem 3D is now up on their site, spent sooo many hours on that, hard to think its over 13 years old, think i'll grab a copy  :)
