Wait, what? <blinks> A "xxxx hits the bargain bin" post from Evil that isn't thinly veiled trolling?

What's this site coming to?

None of these posts are trolling, they are all real sales. But, the "bargain bin" part is more tongue-in-cheek because $20 off a $60 game doesn't feel much like a sale.

$20 ain't a sale, it's full price!! I believe I got this one on sale for $10 on a Steam sale some time back; maybe $15. Can't remember.

Wow, you guys are harsh. This has been about $28 on Amazon for a looong time. Close to 30 percent off that price is a pretty good deal. If you've seen it better, where was your post letting everyone know?

Note that this is the GotY edition too, and not the original. Includes the add-ins. Have to factor the added cost for the console version too over Steam.

I own this game on 2 platforms, its THAT good. But yeah, I got the PC version for like $10 on a Steam sale, so this is not that good.

+1. The game is that good. I do hope they adjust the "Detective mode" a bit for Arkham City. I'd rather have to use it in brief moments, because the art style is soo good.

It was a bit annoying to basically always be walking around with detective mode on. They do need to adjust that. If you had to pick a nit, that would be the one.

Bahaha. Let's not go down THAT road again, because THAT is one of my major 'nits' to pick on the damn game.

Yeah, I don't see why everyone lost their shit over this game. It was good enough in my opinion, but, in the end, majorly overrated.

I remember when the bargain bins were a step UP from the shareware bins! Imagine a time when free products didn't try to infect your computer with vicious legal malware all in some feeble attempt to frustrate you into purchasing their product.
