Fallout 3 & All DLC Offered as Games for Windows – LIVE ‘Deal of the Week’

The Games for Windows – LIVE ‘Deal of the Week’ offers are often a bit hit-and-miss. The digital distribution service seems to be a bit confused in it’s pricing strategy at the best of times, let alone when one product is reduced so significantly in price for one week only. This week however, it makes perfect sense, as one of the best games of recent years becomes available for a pocket money price.

Now to decide whether or not I feel like dealing with the GFWL hassle...

I'll answer that for you

NO! That thing was a joke when I used it.

Just pick it up in the next steam sale if you can. It still requires a GFWL account to play but someone released a patch that allows you to play the game without running GFWL at the same time. Helps increase game performance and you don't have to put up with the annoying GFWL interface and pop ups that are in your face.

All of which you could have gotten last year for about the same price on Steam when Fallout: New Vegas was launched...

This is not what people meant by needing Microsoft to kick their GFWL deals up a notch. A 3 year-old game is still a 3-year old game. People are looking for deals on newer games as well as a much needed expanded library of games.

I have a tip for everyone who is looking for good digital deals. I always check 3 "sites". Those are:

STEAM. They often have daily deals, weekly deals and sometimes even so called "publisher deals" where they sell games really really cheap. In the last few weeks they have hade a few of those and I picked up Bioshock 1 & 2, GTA 1-4, Crysis & Crysis Warhead and so on. Check STEAM everyday for great deals!

www.gamersgate.com , A nice site that always have a deal on something. I have bought Metro 2033 and Torchlight from this one very cheap!

www.direct2drive.com , they have a lot of deals and often low price on many games. The process of downloading etc might be a little complicated, but their deals are always really nice. Like today, RIFT for 17.50£!

Check these sites regularly for great deals! You will be able to afford a lot of great games this way :) The deals I mention above is not available anymore, except the RIFT one which is only today. But watch these sites :)

No matter who you get this deal from...getting all the DLC + Fallout 3 is worth it. Easily over 75+ hours of content.
