had to check my account to be sure I hadn't been charged double, sure enough I had it for $45 and they'd doubled the price. The best bit is... US still only pays $45! WTF!
Yeah batman was cheap initially, even better if you owned the asylum game.
Then it just doubled, not only Batman, but also LA Noire and Assassin's creed Revelations went to $79.
I really enjoy the AC games and preordered it pretty much instantly as my Xmas break game, I guess I got lucky to managed to get it for $49.
Weirdness going on alright, I also am on gamersgate mailing list and they send me specials in pounds for some reason and when I click those URL's I manage to get stuff cheap sometimes although visiting their site directly though doesn't work for the same games as the ones you get emailed links for.
I also bought both Skyrim and Saints Row 3 on Greenmangaming, I only bought Steam games through them so far but it's easy, they just send you the key.
They still have Arkham City cheap as well, I enjoyed the Batman game but I wouldn't call myself a fan so I'll wait for a bargain bin price on Arkham City, not a quality thing as I hear it's excellent it's just not really my cup of tea.
