GameTap for $5 paid in advance

Is $9.95-per-month too expensive for GameTap? If you want to pay in advance, Cheap Ass Gamer mentions a half-off promotion to get a year for $59.40 -- that works out to $4.95 each month.

GameTap will launch episodes of Sam & Max beginning October 17, and Myst Online: Uru Live is expected later this year. Our GameTap interest had been at shrug-level before the promise of new content. Now anticipating those games, we're at raised-eyebrow. $4.95 each month may elevate us to tilting nod.

The half-off promotion ends October 22.
