The Games for Windows Marketplace Daily Deal: STALKER for 99 cents. This is a game that is not exclusive to GFWL, although 99 cents is a great deal on it.
Note: unfortunately, as a listener pointed out, these deals are not available in all countries.
Deal of the Week: World of Goo for $4.99. This is cheaper than it currently is on Steam, where it is now $9.99, but it’s been on sale for about $2.50 or less on Steam before, and it might be again during the holiday sales. However, if you want to get it today, Windows Marketplace has the best deal.
Unofficial word is that Minecraft may be entering beta in 1-2 weeks. This means that the price will go up. Currently, it’s 50% off, making it 9.99 euros or about $13.57 USD, while it’s in alpha, so now is the time to try it and buy it if you’re interested.

Discussion: Should tournament holders have to pay licensing fees to game makers?
The majority like the music (if it’s kept very low key) and aren’t opposed to having another ad in the show. In fact, very few said that they didn’t want us to keep the music. So, if anyone really hates the music or the ads, they haven’t written in to say so yet, and the music will stay for now.
