  • Unreal Gold
  • Unreal 2: The Awakening
  • Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition
  • Unreal Tournament 2004: Editor’s Choice Edition
  • Unreal Tournament 3

All for $59.95. If you buy before the 24th of March, you get an additional 10% off. Pretty sweet if you’re a big Unreal fan who needs to buy any of these games. I would purchase it myself if I an 8800 GT and didn’t buy the PS3 version.

Now that we have id, Valve and Epic Games on Steam, who else do we need? Blizzard, of course. After that, I see no reason to visit brick and mortar stores for essential PC games.

I spent time and sought the answers to these questions and here are my findings.
