    indeed. USD and Euro are the international currencies, im sure it wouldn't hurt to bench prices on such standards just like every other store.

    LGP does have a good wob of games. even if most of them cant match up to the loki counterparts, they should still sell. The presentation is downright awful and the sale prices are what half of these games should have been sold at to begin with.

    ... oh, well, sorry. I am being unfair and had it not been for this info I had known nothing about this. You are not to blame here really, its all LGP.
    It has been mentioned before today here.

    No the sale was real, unfortunately LGP's lack of security is also real.

    Thanks LGP for the sale. I've been meaning to get X3 for a while and you just gave me a good excuse for the wife . Looking forward to the game.

    I got my two games Cold War and Jets n Guns a few days ago. Both seems pretty nice but I have not had time to try them out.

    Oh, and I also got my new credit card to replace the "tainted" one...

    I bought Sacred about a week before this sale was announced, so while I didn't get the game at the sale price, I am happy that I bought a Linux title to support LGP. On the plus side, I snagged a copy of Cold War during the sale and it finally arrived yesterday. I am having tons of fun playing my new Linux games, but I wish I knew beforehand about the security issues with LGP's site. Now I have to watch my on-line credit statements like a hawk, just in case...
