    Contains:
    Dungeon Keeper™
    Dungeon Keeper™ 2
    Theme Hospital
    Magic Carpet™
    Syndicate™
    Populous™
    Populous™ 2: Trials of the Olympian Gods
    Populous™: The Beginning
    Theme Hospital is worth $1.49 by itself. Dungeon Keeper 1/2 as well, especially if you can get the multiplayer working.

    if you get theme hospital [URL="http://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/"]download this[/URL] makes the game run infinitely better than the crappy dosbox version from GOG but it can still be installed/ran from a GOG version of the game.

    DK1 has a similar thing but I don't have the link to hand.

    Green Man Gaming has a bad habit of selling games that they don't even have keys for. e.g. i got Guild Wars 2 from them cause of their 25% off code. i bought the game at night around 8 pm. And didn't get a key. it wasn't on the page it was supposed to be on, nor did i get an email for it...until the next day almost 24 hours later. The email said something like ' we finally got gw2 keys in' wtf were they selling them if they didn't have keys. they could've at least said on the page that it was out of stock, and i checked. it didn't. so i usually don't mess with them anymore.

    On that note; here's a [one time, per account, use] 35% off voucher: WINTR-SRVEY-42012
    (You can even apply that to most already discounted games, I got Chivalry for 5quid)

    [EDIT]
    Key was already posted... Let me make it up with:
    [URL="http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/gb/en/pc/games/action/batman-arkham-city-game-year/"]Batman Arkham City GOTY - £4.99[/URL] [Steam Key]
    you can use this code: GMG25-CZPYL-D5MQ6 to get an extra 25% off. which is what i did. can't believe i'm using gmg but this is a great deal and it does come with a steam key.

    I remember that happening once or twice to Steam before, but mostly remember it happening quite a bit to Direct2Drive as was. I bought Crysis 2 from them in a Christmas sale and they had run out of keys. Did get one eventually, but had to wait until the new year.

    I can remember it happening with steam but last time I saw that it was when they did a stupidly good sale price and a few too many people jumped at it.

    as for direct2drive they were a terrible firm you could pre order a game and not get access till nearly 48 hours after release, how ever if you complained you got a code for any game free, stick it on another pre order as the majority of the time they failed at launches, complain again you got another free game my longest free game chain was 10 games, so I guess they were good as it saved me buying a lot of games but you never had to be wanting to play as soon as the game came out.
