    Just FYI on the Greenman gaming top 50 sale - The sale is currently selling items 20-12 from their top 50. As of 2AM tonight though, the sale will update to the top 11 (see http://blog.playfire.com/2014/08/50-games-you-must-play-before-you-die_17.html).

    If you're after any of the games from 20-12, get in quick!

      It's called on-line shopping. You use the computer to do it. You go to a website and make purchases on-line. No need to wait till the shop opens !

      Which of the above stores were shut when this was posted at 4:30pm??? According to you it's 99% so I assume it will be a long list...

      Btw, online stores don't close... moron.
