That's O.K., you can use the extra post count.

That extra +1 is like some guy in Tienanmen Square on Chinese New Year saying, "Here I am!"

Indie Gala keys, I assume?

Special Indie Gala to "Save the Vancouver Game Industry" (don't ask me).

Pay what you want for:
Rebuild (Android)
Kill Fun Yeah
Shadowgrounds
Zombie Driver HD
[Hidden Game To Be Unlocked]

Beat the average (currently $5.64) to also get:
Gimbal
Shank 2
Mass Effect 2
Zombie Driver HD DLC + Soundtrack
[Hidden Game to be Unlocked]

Before anyone says it, no Mass Effect 2 isn't "indie" and I assume this is sort of like the THQ Humble Bundle in a sense: using an established platform to assist the gaming industry in general.

Assassin's Creed III is $23.75 from GamersGate with coupon code elder-geek.com. That's the cheapest it's been from a digital store so far. Ubisoft key, not Steam.

Dungeons & Dragons Master Collection is $6.45 with same coupon code.

Spore and all it's addons are available on Steam for 75% off. $4.99 for the base game, $9.99 for the base game and one of two addon options, or 14.99 for the game and both addon options.

Pretty sure it still requires EA/Origin logins to play. And if you go by the Steam forums for the game, apparently enough people are buying it on sale and trying to log in to play that it's causing log in errors and such.

Edit:
Also, in case by some stroke of luck you don't have Portal or Portal 2, both are on sale this weekend, 75% off. 4.99 for Portal 2, 2.49 for Portal 1, or 6.24 for both.

No idea about Jade Empire but I assume it's not Steam since it's Bioware and owned by EA. I asked elsewhere if anyone has bought it from Gamefly and what the DRM is. It might be Origin-Lite like Alice: Madness Returns is. As in you can launch the game without Origin but it auto-adds to your Origin library. I don't know for sure though.

I have only ever used the Impulse client to get Steam keys. Download the client, get my key, enter it into Steam, uninstall Impulse. It's a pain in the **** versus them just giving you the key but it's never kept me from a good deal either. I just **** about it under my breath.

From what I heard it's a crappy game. You can't headshot the Zombies (only shooting them in the heart stops them), and there are barely any actual sniping areas so you're mostly on foot using a machine gun.

Deponia is 66% off today on Steam.

I keep seeing this game and really would like to get it. Kind of hoping that it, and the bundle of other games from the same developer, will go on sale for 75% off during the next big steam sale. (Is that spring, or summer?)

Origin has a sale on Command and Conquer this week. A big catalog of C&C games for $9.99

C&C Ultimate Collection
C&C 3 Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath
C&C 4 Tiberian Twilight
C&C and the Covert Operations
C&C Generals and Zero Hours
C&C Red Alert 3 and Uprising
C&C Red Alert Couterstrike and Aftermath
C&C Red Alert 2 and Yuri' Revenge
C&C Renegade
C&C Ultimate Collection - Additional Content
C&C Tiberian Sun and Firestorm

I enjoyed the C&C games, I'm tempted to make the purchase. I'll see how I feel after work.

Edit:
The only link I can find for the deal is in the Origin application itself on the startup screen. Clicking the "Mystery Deal" of the week adds it to your cart and reveals the contents.

So the US Senate looks set to pass the Marketplace Fairness Act which would impose a state sales tax on all online purchases equal to those from physical stores. This would mean you'd have to pay sales tax for purchases from Steam, Origin & Amazon (you may already pay tax for Amazon depending on where you live). It hasn't gone through the Senate yet and would still need to go through the House but...

I haven't seen any word on how, if at all, it would affect international sales. If companies like GMG and GamersGate are exempt, it could provide them with a boost. At least for paying MSRP, you could be saving ~5-8% by choosing them over Steam for the game purchase depending on your location.

Then it won't affect you.

I'm curious what sort of physical presence Valve has in your State that makes them have to pay State sales tax? What State do you live in?

As far as foreign companies having the advantage, they already do with physical goods, right? If you buy something directly from a foreign company and have it imported, you don't pay State sales tax (at least, I'm pretty sure you don't, I rarely handle our purchases). And I'm not sure of any tariffs or the such on imported video game goods.

According to the wiki article you linked it's supposed to affect "out of state" online stores as well.

Out-of-state in this context doesn't necessarily include international; it seems to be talking more about mail order/catalog businesses. More to the point, there's an enforcement mechanism for domestic vendors via the IRS and state tax collection agencies. Extending their reach to everyone on the planet with an internet presence seems a bit trickier.

But I'll happily admit that I don't know the answer.

When the tax thing passes and goes into effect, I wonder if I can setup a bank account and credit/debit card in a State that has low or no sales tax and use that as my billing address to avoid paying any or higher taxes?

EA/Origin charges me the 6% MI sales tax because they have offices in this State somewhere. Pretty sure the only reason the know I'm in Michigan is when I fill out my address for my billing info.

Edit:
That probably wouldn't work. I'd have to have some sort of address, and they probably don't accept PO Box addresses as billing addresses, do they?
