    Saints Row 3 at a mad price of $13 with all dlc! Get it! Only bad thing is the bloodsucker pack but it's only $13 :p

    Genki Girl Pack is not included but is only 2 bux. It was a lot cheaper earlier for this DLC! :D

    Edit - got the pack without the Genki Girl DLC. I know it will go sale again later and its only cosmetic. I made that mistake before with Killing Floor, buying the DLC at full price when the game was 75% off, then the DLC went on sale 2 weeks later. Sigh.. Never again for cosmetics but good deal for the base game.

    So far only KF's newest DLC, The Heist, X Superbox (more midnight gaming sessions) and this...

    Skipped ARMA 2 - I know its a great game but DayZ standalone and ARMA 3 is coming out soonish and no Splinter Cell - Conviction... NO UBISHEET DRM for me.

    Just noticed those Aussies got the whole pack for almost 10 USD equivalent! Great job Aussies!

    Bah who cares for panda cars, it's a lot of content for $13! :D Main attraction is getting the season pass in that price, rest don't matter much. Still, I was going to buy the Pass seeing how much I'm enjoying the game but this weird pricing put me off :-/ I can live without gangstas in space and clones :p

    Since THQ is pricing their stuff as if they're liquidating, how about Metro 2033 for $2.49? :p

    Yes, it is very good IMO, much better than 2008's Prince of Persia (the cell-shaded one). I actually held off buying it because of the less than rave review but it really is a lot of fun with some great puzzles and a throwback to the design of the earlier Sands of Time which this game feels a lot like. For £6 or whatever, it's well worth buying.

    Concerning the game "The Walking Dead", it talks about buying the season pass to gain access to all 5 episodes, does buying the game mean you've bought the pass? If I buy it now am I paying for episodes 3-5 later?

    Anno 2070 was on sale two or three times iirc, you should've purchased it then.

    I guess my Winter sale shopping list is pretty small now, just Skyrim (again, if at least 66% off) and borderlands 2! :D
