It also tells you, if you publisher drops the price low enough people will come in droves to buy it. Keep in mind the average donation is under $5.

But the bundle is all "old" games. Except for Elder Scrolls and Fallout, I'm always waiting until games drop to the second or third tier price.

Now, having said that, Dead Space and Mirror's Edge are two games I would have paid $20 apiece to load and play, but I didn't

Just got this pack, great deal and looks to be a great site. Can I use BOTH the Origin and Steam codes, or do I have to chose one?

Suppose I could, if it doesn't work it isn't like buying the entire deal again is going to kill me.

Ah. I see. How about giving out codes for steam next time?
Of course, I still wouldn't know how to use them.

Well, I'm still playing Borderlands. I see a few guy's still playing it on and off. I farmed XP, Tokens and Eridium at the Bar. Seems really easy to do but time consuming. I made 3 ranks by spending a few hours fighting. Got some decent drops as well. Now my Mechromancer is Lvl 28. I have shields with all three immunities which helps a lot with some of the bosses. I got bored killing so I took Pete out with a few jabs. I'm pretty sure my mechromancer is a lot stronger then my siren was when I was at the same place.

Speaking of which, I've stopped playing my Siren. She's on the last chapter but I don't like the fighting style as much. I was also reading that the first play thought, doesn't matter if you do the side quests or not. I don't think you'll be able to gain XP nearly as fast though. The second play through is the one to be careful with. I read you can't get the side quests at all. If you get the quest added to your list it will screw you up when you do 2.5. You need to heave the '!' alone so get you the unknown quests if you want the stronger weapons later. Though I've heard it's not really that special.

Also, how often to people reset their skills?

Seriously and you can give every penny to charity!
I bought two of them last night. One for me and one for the wife. She wanted it more for the Sims 3 than anything else. All but the Sims 3, Dead Space 3, and one other game can be added directly to your Steam Account.
