Glu Mobile just announced that they will be putting most of their games on sale for $0.99 for the entire Memorial Day Weekend.

Gameloft’s DRM policy was brought up yesterday after Dave Loft sent tips out to a few sites. I found out about it right away but decided to not post anything about it until thinking it through for a bit. Gameloft’s DRM policy is terrible.

First and foremost, I must say that this is the first 3D isometric RPG I have played on a little screen. I have played many 2D RPG’s and they play very well.
