If you have an interest in 3D animation, there is currently a program that is dirt cheap. Messiah Studio is only $10 standard and $40 pro, compared to the regular price of $500 and $1195. This deal only is going to last for about 11 more hours.
[UPDATE] The sale is now over.
Also, Square Enix is having a sale of all their games this week on Steam. A new game every day is put on sale, along with Square Enix’s entire library in a bundle, for $75, which saves you $531.69.
