XBOX USERS: Marvel vs Capcom 2 is 560 points today only on Xbox Live (usually over 1200ish). Instabuy, I used to play this all the time on my Dreamcast.

The Steam Holiday Sale

Oh, and by the way, Steam now has Beyond Good & Evil for $4.99. I knew I should have waited.
Ah, such is the Christmas period.

Hehe I was wondering if you guys would get to it before me when I saw it before work.

Here's a montage from the first and (not as good) second game:

I love just wandering around in this game.

For later playthroughs, there's a mod called Oblivion Lost, which is a complete overall, making everything even harsher and less predictable, while adding some nice touches.

You can find it really cheap these days and you'll get a lot of play out of it.
