You know, I knew I had a problem when they had one of their flash sales and I clicked a game that looked neat.

I said I already owned it. I never played it, but I owned it.

I think it was an indy title so it might have come in a bundle. Either that or it was freaky cheap. When they have something on sale for under $10 or more so under $5 my bar to buying is pretty low.

I've been messing about with the Civ 5 clone set in the Magesty universe called Warlock: Master of something. Picked it up for $7. Not bad for $7. It is missing stuff, like an end score and other little things. Still, $7 for a fantasy Civ game. The other odd part is it is not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. It is made by a Russian group. Russian games always strike me as a little harder than most, or have a sharp uptick in the difficulty level. Not so much here.

Also picked up the latest HOMM, but haven't played it. It had an always online req, but I'm not sure they if they scrapped it. I know Ubisoft started to clue in that folks where wary of buying their games do to the draconian DRM.

Bought a couple other things, forget what they are. So that is a good sign of money well spent!
