Depends on where in the world they are. In the US sales usually break at 11pm EST. Depends on whether the developer set them up to drop on a certain date or if they drop them manually. All the US drop at the same time though so its in about an hour here.

IAP? I doubt it. Not sure though, but I doubt it.

I guarantee that almost all of you will be plopping down the $15 for the remaining episodes of The Walking Dead.

MADE THE FRONT PAGE ON TA!

I won't. It was only $10 on sale for the PC last week. I'm thinking of trying to play it on my iPad thru Splashtop. It'll probably be a disaster though. Okay fine, I might plop down another $15 for the iPad convenience.

...and I need a personal assistant! Yeah, I've got stuff checked on my appshopper wishlist, favorited in the TA app, reminders in Appzap Pro, a sheet of paper next to my PC, and a virtual sticky note on my PC desktop.

And I'm sure it will only get worse (or better? I can't tell anymore...) as the days count down to the appstore lockdown.

Luckily, I'm assuming most of the sales (not freebies) will last through the holidays. Gotta capitalize off of all the itunes GC's, right?

In other news, i'm having storage space issues on my PC again.

...and I'm just now playing through Chinatown Wars.

Doubt it. That's the problem with huge (in file size) games that have iaps. I'll have probably spent my itunes account by the time I install it, if it ever even happens. As an example, I was going to purchase the GOF2 add-ons, but I haven't been able to re-install it in ages.

Much more likely to buy a (much smaller) Pinball Arcade or Zen Pinball table.

OTOH, I bought all the Sam and Max's, though who knows when I'll install them. I suppose there might be a higher conversion rate by including the chapters as iaps...for those who have a 32Gb device or larger.

One last thing...if I was a big publishing house, I would be pressuring Apple in any way possible to update the available storage sizes. I mean, I got an iPod classic with 80 gigs a long time ago. And that's just a music player. And I think 160 is the standard size now.

Thanks man. Got the first Hector for free and thought the parts I played were hilarious. I'm grabbing the other two episodes.

I've barely started it. :-/ Too many games and too little time. Plus I've been firing up Magic 2013 again.

Did they say which sales are until January and which are more time-limited? I assume The Walking Dead will be made paid again before the Appstore lockdown, but will everything else remain discounted for the holidays?

Favorites: Puzzle Quest, The Quest, Sway, Glyder, Reign of Swords, Flight of the Amazon Queen
