My recommendations, based on sale price

Trials Evo Gold $10
Ghost Busters the Video Game $5
The Secret World $10 (similar to GW2, buy to play mmo)
Magicka Collection $5 (note this one includes all the DLC, while the other Magicka on their list which is also $5, does not)
Dungeonland $3.99

in no particular order. i didnt browse the entire list since its like 900 plus games on sale but those above sales prices caught my eye, played and enjoyed each of those. they also have GW2 but it's only discounted to $33, but to be fair if you want an mmo with no sub fee, it offers a lot of content and is updated for free pretty often

Just put in a fake US address. I've been doing it last couple years to get these games via Amazon as they are only available to US customers

The insanity has begun. Green Man Gaming is having what they call a '666' sale, For 6 days, every 6 hours 6 games will go on sale. Right now, you can get Borderlands 2 complete (Game + Season Pass) for just $15. If you already have Borderlands, that's a much better deal than you can get on Amazon right now.

And on a side note, holy crap, could they (GMG) have chosen a worse name ('666')? Do they not realize they pretty much guaranteed losing sales to some people? I don't think they thought that one through very well...

Holy cow! I was going to buy the BL2 season pass anyway, but this is probably the cheapest I'll see it. I already own BL2 on Steam, so I'm hoping they just give me a couple of codes; then I can use the code for the season pass on my account and gift BL2.

That's why I thought it was news post worthy. Since I'm mostly a PC gamer, like most gamers I keep an eye out for sales like Steam's various seasonal / holiday sales, Amazons, GoG's etc.

Sometimes you can find great deals on Amazon that you won't see on Steam so I figured that earns it a mention. Even if you're just window shopping, can't hurt to look

You get separate codes.

Cool, thanks! Now if I could just get the transaction to complete without erroring out.

I can't tell if it's barfing on my payment details, a failure on the authorization side, or the GMG site is just bogged down and failing. It better work before the items goes off sale!

Honestly, I think all great game sales like this are news worthy as well, so I fully support (and encourage) news like this.

It's possible to just use a US address, buy the game, download it, done.

Actually, for BL2, not all DLC is included. The Season Pass only covers the 4 add-on campaign missions. There's still around $50 of $DLC to buy (including the new classes, such as the Mechromancer and Psycho). They didn't want the well to run dry just because someone bought the season pass.
