FYI, I've added an "Analytics" section on my website.
While it will grow with more useful information, immediately it will allow you to see the sale history of any game.

For example, it will show that "Edge" was on sale during the Holiday sale for $2.71.

Edge is alright. Not the funnest puzzle game I've ever played, but it's ok.

Cool feature, do like. I've seen it on other sites that track DD sales, but they lump all the DD sites they keep track of with it and it gets messy.

Dunno if it is possible or not or how easy/hard it is to put in. But could the Analytics also track the date it was on sale for xxx price as well? That could help a lot too.

Not quite sure what you're asking; I simply track each date the game was on sale.
So, the first chart shows "EDGE" on sale on different dates at different prices.

( In the overall game view, you see that EDGE was listed on sale 4 times. Click on the 4 to see those dates and prices.)

I didn't realize/see I could click on that number at the end, that was pretty much exactly what I was asking, sorry, but thank you for clearing it up. Great feature :D

I bought Painkiller Black Edition a few years ago.

If you want a mindless shooter like Quake or Doom, then Painkiller should give you just what you are looking for. No real story plot, good graphics for when the game was released, just about all weapons have multiple fire modes, and the AI is stupid.

Found a screen shot of painkiller I posted to my photobucket account a few years ago.

This is from Painkiller Black



I can not speak for the other versions of Painkiller, but the Black edition was a lot of fun. The music can get old rather quick, sometimes you have to hunt down and kill that last zombie before you can complete a map, sometimes the direction arrow does not work too great, the AI acts like something out of the 1990s.

I might get the painkiller package, put in my inventory so I can gift to someone later.

Only get Black Edition. For $2.50 it's a good deal. The complete pack for $5 isn't worth it because all the other games in the series are terrible.

If someone likes mindless shooters, why not.

Bought 3 copies of Painkiller Black, stored them in my inventory for gifting or trade later on.

Nothing like Asteroids actually. It is a fun little game. Demo on Steam as well.
