Microsoft's GamesForWindows.com daily deal is Viva Pinata, which you can get for 80msp or 99c from their site or from the marketplace app. Really recommend this game to everyone, it's great.
 

EDIT: This deal is no longer available.

Such a bargain. One of my favourite games of the last 5 years. There is no native anti-aliasing in the PC version because it uses deferred rendering. You'll have to use an external program like nHancer.

As far as I know (via xbox360achievements.org) the PC version supports achievements.

This game is seriously underrated, one of the best Rare have ever made.
Definitely worth the 80 Microsoft points, if you don't already own it.
 
Although watch out for the 7gb download.

The game is not showing up at 99 cents!

If you go through the site it can take a little while for their store to update, but the application (Games for Windows Marketplace) is fully functional for me. Deal lasts until 8:30am PST tomorrow, so there's plenty of time.

@The_Laughing_Man:  It's a mistake. You can buy it through the client for the correct price, or wait until they update the price on the website.

Yep, I own the PC version and there's achievements. If you go to the site and click on Live enabled then all the achievement games will pop up.

That's a pretty awesome deal.  I rented it once and had a real good time with it, however, there is no way that my laptop would be able to run it. Bummer.

 I would most certainly get it however I am unable to sign up for a LIVE account, just keep getting errors when I try to do so. It's been like that for more than a week now :/

Does the PC game have any content not found in the 360 version?  Sweet mixed breed mods?

@Ammut:  No mods, no extra content.

I didn't really enjoy what I played of this game, but I have bought far worse games for more money.

SOLD. Played the 360 version to completion, but I'll gladly play it again on PC. (Also; points.) Love this damn game. 
 
Funny, I was actually deliberating yesterday whether to pick this up on PC and play it again. Well, the 99 cent deal today made that one hell of an easy choice.

S-ranked both the 360 and PC version of this game.  Slow cookies.

Never thought I'd buy Viva Pinata but I couldn't pass this up, especially when it has achievements, bought it with 80 msp, even though I had to install the GFWL client

Well alright then. Guess I'm buying Viva Pinata. I always wanted to check it out.

I just bought this because I had only ever played the demo. Unfortunately it is going to take forever for the 7GB to download.

I'm pretty annoyed that Microsoft refuses to accept my totally valid credit card, and doesn't have PayPal support either. I'm not going to a damn store to buy a points card, so no Viva Pinata for me.

Never played the game but was always interested - kinda more hyped for this than my purchase of AOE3 for the same price. Awesome. 
 
Can't believe they've actually managed to out do Steam for once. Here;s hoping GeoW is the next deal...

Yep, still awesome. It's been long enough since I played the 360 version that's all fresh again.

Damn, I bought this game at $20 during GFWL's first week of sales. Didn't think they'd continue with the crazy sales.

I mean, I really shouldn't but it is only a damn buck. Bah, yet another game that goes on my list of games I'm buying but probably never touching.
