One of my favorite PC games could make its way to your gaming collection, if you're willing to part with a crisp George Washington. As today's Games for Windows "Daily Deal," the GSC Game World-developed shooter S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Shadow of Chernobyl is available for 99 cents (or 80MS Points).

If you're planning on picking the game up--or own it and haven't fired it up in a while--make sure to download the "Complete" mod, which adds a slew of enhancements to the game. The latest S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Complete 2009 mod kit is available right now, for free, on FileShack.

The Games for Windows marketplace is offering a new title for 99 cents each day until December 8. Previously the sale featured Viva Pinata and Deus Ex, among others.

More post-nuclear fallout action is planned for the far-flung future, with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 planned for release in 2012. The series' most recent entry, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, launched earlier this year.

Relic's RTS Dawn of War II and its expansion Chaos Rising have had their multiplayer patched to version 2.3.1, which has been lovingly named the "Eternal War" patch.

Free-for-fall and team free-for-all game modes have been added to the game along with a new map, "The White Walls of Calderis". Additionally, plays can now vote on preferred maps for matchmaking, which will be fed into the system and attempt to match players on his or her preferred maps.

A host of balance changes have also been introduced as well as improvements to the garrisoning and transporting systems. The patch should be automatically applied through Steam and the full notes can be found below.
