Is BIT.TRIP games going to be any cheaper? I wanted to get BIT.TRIP Beat for less than 2€ but the 2€ price tag was already a normal price tag before Steam raised the price, and are now lowering it again on the flash deal. Since the flash deal only lasts a couple of hours and I don't know if the game will appear in a Daily Deal, do you think should just get it now?
It's currently £1.74 in the UK, which is the cheapest I've seen any game other than The Binding of Isaac (£0.99). I doubt it's getting cheaper, and it's worth your money at that price.
I had a part time job while I was at university and I was one of the top in my class, is US university that difficult?
Anyway, I wouldn't feel too bad about it. As long as your parents want you to do well at school, they'll be happy to keep you there. And if it gets difficult towards the end, you could take out a loan. If you're doing this well in your studies you should be able to find a decent job and pay it off. Chin up guy, sounds like you've had it pretty hard, but the results will make it all worthwhile.
