2K makes some cool games. Borderlands, Civilization, and yes, even Evolve when it's as rad as it should be.

UK game developer, Blitz Games Studios has stopped trading today. Best known for the Dizzy titles, their work on Epic Mickey 2, Reservoir Dogs (under its Volatile Games brand) and connection with IndieCity, Blitz Games Studios has been around for 23 years. Yet another sad story of a closing studio - yet the outpouring of support has been incredible.
Christmas is almost here, but what do you buy your PC savvy pal/partner/boss/lover?

So how about some cheap indie games then?
