but screw Shattered Horizon. DX10 only, multiplayer only shooter by a mostly unknown studio... could you guarantee failure any more? Maybe it's the greatest game ever, but I'll continue to boycott it for the DX10 nonsense.

It's an interactive benchmark by a benchmark software developer, of course it's DX10 only.

Lead and Gold is a decent game, but screw Shattered Horizon. DX10 only, multiplayer only shooter by a mostly unknown studio... could you guarantee failure any more? Maybe it's the greatest game ever, but I'll continue to boycott it for the DX10 nonsense.

Still, good luck with the free weekend, hopefully some people actually start playing Lead and Gold.

Looks like the pack will be 50% off (regular price will be $25), not 75%. Had me wondering for a minute there, why would a value bundle have to be discounted 75% to save you 60% off the separate prices.

Also looks like the two games will be available individually for 50% off ($10 and $7.50).

In other words, 50% off Lead and Gold or Shattered Horizon, or buy a bundle of both with a special name for 60% off.

It would be a good deal if anyone was playing these. Hence why they're likely doing this. It's a shame because they're both really good games but they have no community at all.
