They're in the rotation. I've seen them periodically throughout the day.

And, just like that, one also popped up on the top page banner space. I've been meaning to see what NWS has these days so there I go...

I need to steer more of my purchases to NWS. Chris Dean is a great guy and runs a great business.

I bought many old games from him. He went the extra mile to find me a complete hard copy of Freespace 2 a million years ago.

I've purchased from NWS in the past, but it's been a few years now. Chris' service has always been outstanding.
