I recommend Bronze, Weird Worlds, War Plan Pacific, and Dominions 3.

Gather around and let's check out the cool discounts...
Save $3.00 off these hot titles:
Battle Group Commander Episode One - A real time simulation of modern warfare between Brits and Soviets. A mini-game that features everything that makes the full ProSIM games great, but at a fraction of their size.

Take $5.00 from the retail price of these titles:
Air Command 3.0 - A game about air traffic control. Definitely a different take on what strategy games can offer, Air Command 3.0 offers tense, exciting gameplay in a world that isn't fantasy, WW2, or the ACW. Naps not included.
Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War - Tired of watching the news and seeing South Korea constantly being picked on by North Korea? Total warfare on the peninsula in this intense real-time strategy game of modern warfare.
Salvo! - When naval warfare consisted of wooden ships, colorfully dressed sailors, and big balls. Relive the glory days of cannons and ships that burn with Salvo!.
Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa - Who doesn't like to kill monsters and take their loot? Dungeon crawl your way to killing lots of creatures whose only crime is wanting to kill you first. Then whip up your own adventures.
War Plan Pacific - Command fleets, air groups, and amphib assaults! Featuring multiple victory conditions, not to mention a slew of fatalities and secret endings, this is THE Pacific game to have on your on your hard drive.
winSPMBT Enhanced Edition - Classic wargaming is not dead! Hundreds of scenarios and endless tactics provide players with a game of infinite possibilities, only matched by its companion title, winSPWW2.
winSPWW2 Enhanced Edition - Shermans, Panthers, and Cromwells fight on the beaches, in the fields, and beyond. Way too much gaming is contained here, with hundreds of hours of scenarios, campaigns, and quick battles.
For the following games you'll save $6.00 off their normal price:
Air Assault Task Force - This one is really hot! Cool off by cranking up the Wagner and bringing death from above in another superb modern warfare simulation from ProSIM.
ATF: Armored Task Force - Featuring tanks, tanks, and more tanks. Globe trotting fun in which yes, you blow the crap out of the enemy. Does an excellent job of reminding oneself of the little pleasures in life.
Dominions 3: The Awakening - You. Yeah, you, the guy who says he'll pick up Dominions 3 when it's not at full price. It's not at full price. So finally buy it so you can discover what the other five billion owners already know: this game motherbleeping RULES!!
The Falklands War: 1982 - At the bottom of the world the British and Argentineans faced each other in a battle of Exocets and Harriers. Modeling combat down to bayonet charges, this entry in the ProSIM line features everything you've come to expect from ProSIM: tense, exciting scenarios using real world maps and equipment that raises the bar on what a computer wargame can be.
Space HoRSE - Another game that doesn't feature mass killing. A fast-playing economic game set in the future in space. All games should be set in space. Space is cool.
The Star and the Crescent - Arab-Israeli conflicts, both historical and hypothetical. Perfect for the armor enthusiast.
So there you have them, all our titles on sale thru August 6th. Right now there's no better time to stay indoors and play computer games. Stay in, beat the heat, complete your Shrapnel Games library, and have some really cool discounted fun!
Although War Plan Pacific, Dominions 3 and Weird Worlds are pretty good games a $3-$5 (£2-£3) discount is hardly worth terming a Sale, or as the press release puts it "massive sale on all our current gaming titles", particularaly when compared to the Steam and Gamersgate Sales with discounts usually in the region of 40%-75% (more at times) or even the Matrix Sales which are usually c30%.

Well what about Jeff Lapkoff games? He's been charging $30 for his old games for at least a decade now. Some developers just never give any discounts and are happy with what little sales they do get at regular old prices. We won't see any real discounts until some big publisher buys them all out. Maybe Paradox will absorb them all someday and we'll get them for $4 to $5
I've been fortunate enough to get most of the Shrapnel games I own from Ebay though and much much less than he's selling them at a discount. I don't have a problem with used game buying but it's getting harder and harder to find the ones you want.
Want is the foundation of impatience, a step without thought can be a drop without end
Dbeves: And LMFAO - didnt you just have to work battlefront into your response somewhere - you are priceless.
