    Not that I saw, it's pretty basic hidden object.  No interaction, a floating head pops up with written dialog telling you basic information.

    Maybe I just didn't get it.

    Now out at Big Fish are the SE of Spirit of Revenge: Cursed Castle and the CE of Shrouded Tales: The Spellbound Land.  The Daily Deal is Twilight Phenomena 2: Strange Menagerie.  All Collector's Editions, which you can find HERE, are $8.99 each using the code COLLECT.  Don't forget to start at Ebates if you're going to participate in the sale~! Happy bounce

    GameHouse now has Chronicle Keepers: The Dreaming Garden, Crafting Story (a SIM), and the My Kingdom for the Princess Super Pack (all four of the games! Awesome!)

    iWin now has the SE of Evil Pumpkin: The Lost Halloween and Home Makeover 2.

    As Snapnhiss mentioned, The Twilight Zone is out at Legacy today.  Although it's about the classic TV show, this is all I keep thinking about:



    Steam's Daily Deal is Mirror's Edge for $4.99, and GamersGate's is for 80% off of the Supreme Commander games.

    Happy gaming~! videogaming

    The TGT at Big Fish is the SE of Witches' Legacy 4: The Ties that Bind, and there's a soft release of Dino R-R-age Defense.  The Daily Deal is Mystery Age 3: Liberation of Souls (hated the first one, loved the second, and haven't tried this one yet Silly face  )

    iWin is the first portal to get Black Viper: Sophia's Fate.

    Steam's Daily Deal is Starpoint Gemini 2 for $14.99, and GamersGate's is Arvoch Conflict for $9.98.

    Happy gaming!

    The TGT at Big Fish is Melissa K. and the Heart of Gold.  This is an adventure-lite with some fragmented object scenes, but because of the FRO's, I've put it in the hidden object section.  There is a soft release of Vacation Adventures 3: Cruise Director, and the Catch of the Week is Nightmare Realm 2: In the End...

    GameHouse now has Rory's Restaurant, which is a Match-3/TM hybrid with some scattered hidden object scenes, much like Pizza Chef (which is a lot of fun!), and iWin has Legend of Gallant, which is a straight-up match-3.

    Steam's Daily Deal is Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut for $4.99, and GamersGate's is Wizardry 8 for $2.00.  As a side note, GamersGate also has the Cognition Game of the Year Edition on sale for $3! OH!  This is a fantastic, gripping adventure, which I highly recommend!  It's a steal at that price!

    Happy gaming! Sunny

    I've been wondering recently... when we buy a game at BFG, we used to get offered a Special Deal game at checkout (usually priced at £3.89, if I remember correctly).   Mouse pbbt

    I haven't had one of these deals for quite a while now.  Anyone else noticed this?  Anyone know why they stopped doing this?  Or is it just me that somehow doesn't get the special deals anymore?  Hmm...

    Hi Frodo!

    I don't get them anymore either, but I only ever got them from time to time, not every purchase. Maybe they've phased them out. All these different sales, it'd be keeping their people too busy to get on with the good. Which, as everybody knows, is Half Off CE promotions!! Happy bounce

    Oooh, you're right!  I hadn't even noticed that, most of the games didn't really interest me or I already owned the CE version.  Hmmm

    I think I accidentally ate something with wheat in it, but either way, I'm not feeling very well. Nothing exciting going on except a BOGO on SE's at Big Fish -- use the code 2FOR1.

    Hopefully I'll have a full update for you tomorrow~!

    Thanks for channeling your inner "genki," Justie! Elk grin  Not only do I post all of that stuff, but I also update the game threads here with the release information (or post the new topics, when applicable,) and the links I put in this thread go to the game topics here (if we have one) so that people can see any reviews that might have been made on the games.  Then I update the game indexes (every section has one for easy navigation), Game Series, and Developed by threads, and link together any games that are part of a series... It's a lot of work, but it's a labor of love~

    Justie's above post shows today's portal information, so I'll add in yesterday's:

    Big Fish and GameHouse both released Strike Solitaire 3: Dream Resort, and games are 50% off at GameHouse today using the code DOG14.

    iWin now has the CE of Manor Memoirs, and Alawar has Green City: Go South.

    Steam's Daily Deal is Fight the Dragon for $8.99, and GamersGate's is The Wolf Among Us for $12.50.

    Happy gaming~!  I'm off to make that topic for Dance Macabre! Big smile
