welcome to the site. I'm going to echo what a lot of other people have said and that is that i hope you or someone else will be handling the console deals on here. Don't let k-mart have all of the fun on here.


+1
And let's start with some promo credit for Ps3 Dead Island and Resistance 3 please :D

Hi CAG Community,


This is my first post on the CAG forums, I’m really excited to be joining this community, and look forward to participating in some of the awesome conversations that go on here regularly. The first thing I want to let you all know is that there is a human on the other end of the line here, and that he’s a gamer.


To give you some background, I’ve been gaming since I was 7 years old, my older brother convinced me to ask for an NES and Maniac Mansion for my birthday…and I was hooked. Since then I’ve made the transition between console and PC gamer time and time again, with my favorite gaming experiences firmly rooted in each.


My favorite games include the Final Fantasy series, anything by Bioware, and Dark Age of Camelot. I’m currently re-playing Dragon Age for the 5th time and determined to have my entire party love me by the end of this run.


You can expect me to participate in conversations about gameplay, what’s going on in the industry, and of course, great deals Amazon has to offer on PC Digital Games.


To that end, I want to let everyone know that for the next 10 days Amazon Digital Video Games will be offering Deus Ex: Human Revolution for 30% off. This means you can get the standard edition for $34.99 and the augmented edition for $41.99.


Click here to see this deal.

Thanks for taking the time to read this (and hopefully respond).

-Amazon Digital Gamer

Awesome! Great to see another retailer on here. This is the best video game community I've ever been a part of and I know you'll find it an amazing place to get honest and valuable feedback.

Welcome Tony!

Welcome to CAG, Tony!

I mainly just buy console games but having an Amazon rep around will be great!

What server did you play DAoC on, Tony? Galahad here! Great game, miss it a lot.

Hi everyone,
There have been a ton of questions asked today, I’ll try and get to all of them, but please let me know if I miss any. Sorry for the delay, I was hanging out at PAX, where I ran into Shipwreck by the way!


Is anyone else at/going to be at PAX? If you were there today, what did you love? I got a chance to play some awesome Indie games, including an awesome concept from a company called “Gamebook Adventures”, these guys are essentially making my dream of interactive Choose Your Own Adventure books a reality. The new Behemoth game also looks pretty phenomenal.
So to your questions:


1. It seems like a ton of people are wondering if I’m here to represent only Digital Deals. The short answer to that question is “Yes”. I work specifically for the Digital Video Games team, that doesn’t mean I won’t participate in discussions about console games I’m playing though.


2. @Sway Am I in charge of @amazongames? If the tweet is related to Digital Video Games then I’m involved in it. The two tweets related to an upcoming deal and the follow-up detailing the Deus Ex deal came from myself and one of my co-workers. Same thing goes for the Amazon Video Games Facebook page.


3. @Vherub asked a question about an ECA membership issue. That promotion predates my Amazon career. I briefly remember my roommate at the time mentioning something about it but I’m not sure what was involved and thus can’t really speak intelligently about it.


4. @zappa103 I’m not sure where the OnSale guys sit L and your question about Earthbound made me smile. Birthdays were always filled with videogames in my childhood, usually in the form of titles my brother wanted but were released close to my birthday. One year I spent the majority of my summer playing that game for hours. I love that game.


5. @HeSaveDave why come to CAG now? I only recently joined the Amazon team and had the opportunity to meet CheapyD during my first week. I’ve read these forums in the past in my personal life and think you all have an awesome community. Based on the positive feedback I’ve received so far, I’m really happy with my decision to post here.


6. @Lemarfanz I promise I’ll be working really hard to raise awareness around our deals so that as many people as possible are aware of them as quickly as possible.


7. @xspeedracerx thanks for the vote of confidence, we are extremely dedicated to creating an awesome experience for our customers, glad you think we’re doing a good job.


8. @shockandaww Maniac Mansion was amazing, I played it so much that my father eventually got frustrated with my lack of desire to do anything else and, I kid you not, unplugged the system and threw it in the trashcan about 3 months after we got it. Luckily my brother was able to convince him to retrieve it. I think I addressed your question about the physical team above, if I didn’t please let me know.


9. @retrad great question, without getting into specifics, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in the deals from Amazon Digital Video Games, during the holiday season or outside of it, if you are please let me know. I value your feedback and will definitely listen to everything you have to say.


10. @CheapyD thanks man!


Again, thanks everyone for the warm welcome. This has been an awesome start and I hope you all continue to enjoy the conversations I get to take part in and the deals I bring to the site.


Cheers,
Tony

This is why I will never(unless the policy changes) hesitate to purchase a digital game from Amazon. Not even Steam will do this for you.


Just wanted to say that while Steam may not do this, GamersGate does. Amazon is now the second digital retailer that I know that does this. They just went up a notch in my estimation.

I'll also just mention that I purchased ARMA 2 off of Amazon digital earlier this year and have had no issues with it whatsoever. It works with retail patches as well as DLC. It was also ridiculously cheap.

I look forward to what may come of this.

I bought a retail copy and thought so. Oddly enough, this physical AE version activates as a standard edition on Steam. I was hoping for digital copies in addition to the physical stuff.

If anyone doesn't want their Tactical Enhancement Pack, I'll buy it for $5.

Any chance you could pass CAG's overwhelming desire for a console deals rep on to the powers that be? Thanks for answering all our questions and welcome again!

Hi CAG Community,

My favorite games include the Final Fantasy series, anything by Bioware, and Dark Age of Camelot. I’m currently re-playing Dragon Age for the 5th time and determined to have my entire party love me by the end of this run.


hmm are you still a fan of Bioware? Because i used to regard them as one of my favorite companies but they have seriously gone down the tubes for me. It was just interesting to see someone still list them as one of their favorite companies. I would say after mass effect 1 (probably my fave game from them, even more so than old republic) they started going down the crapper. Dragon age pissed me off with the complete lack of patches to fix the dexterity and other bugs for the console version, and theyve been making their games more action game than rpg lately =(

Just wondering if you still regard them well, or what. I wish i could still say i love them, but now adays I dont really give a damn when i hear theyre working on a game

and wow at DAOC didn't know that game was even still around

anyway, welcome. I love amazon and browse them for deals fairly regularly. Ive spent thousands there this past year on crap =P This particular deal doesn't interest me since i gave up on PC gaming a long time ago, but good to see you here regardless.

*edit*

damn too bad about the digital deals only. I guess it wont be worth anything to me =(

It's great to hear that I don't need to download a client and I can download multiple times.. will definitely be buying something from Amazon Digital soon.

Can we use credits towards Digital games? Like if we order a new game and it comes with a $10 promo credit, can we apply that towards a digital game?

As a legally blind gamer who uses Amazon Prime to get my games (there are literally no shops for at least 60 miles that sell games), it's good to see an official Amazon rep who'll be frequenting the CAG boards.

Just bought this! Thanks Tony/Amazon.

I have been watching out for this game for a year or so, and this price is exactly what I was hoping for- it is so great to get a new release for a bargain- thanks for letting me know brother!

Surprisingly, it is running like butter on my M11x too! 8-)

legally blind can mean that you can still see, just that it might be so poorly that by legal definition you are considered to be pretty much blind.

id being able to see even a little bit, even poorly wouldn't stop someone from playing games since fully blind people have played games before.

While you are entirely correct in your explanation, you must have missed the edit he made in the quote emphasizing the word "see" in "see an Amazon rep" and making an obvious joke over specific word use. He wasn't questioning why a legally blind person would be playing games.

Aye carumba, digital crap ONLY? I can't believe we finally get Amazon to look this way and they send someone who can't even fully represent their gaming side of the business? Not a single PC game or digital offering in the Top Ten Bestselling Video Games list on Amazon at the moment, yet we get a PC/digital rep?

Sorry to come off as upset, but myself and plenty others have been waiting a long time for some proper Amazon representation around here and to receive someone not qualified to do that, seems like a slap in the face. Of course that won't stop me from continually giving Amazon a majority of my monthly income, but it would have been nice to have Amazon's gaming side wholly represented. Just saying...:roll:

Seriously, the download deal on Amazon for Deus Ex: HR - which requires Steam - is quite good.
Sure, not good as GMG a bit ago for Reg Edition at $28.80, but still...better than most.

Seriously, Amazon has matched A LOT of the other places w/ PC digital download deals.

Dragon Age 2 -> can be registered on Origin = $12 -> matched D2D
Homefront -> requires Steam = $15 -> matched Gamersgate
Civ 5 -> requires Steam = $17 -> matches Gamersgate
Borderlands: GOTY -> can be registered on Steam = $7.49 -> matches Steam
The Witcher 2 = $30 -> matched D2D
Dawn of War 2: Retribution - requires Steam = $15 -> matches D2D

with the credit that GMG gives.. GMG still has the beter deal for Deus Ex: HR for now.
40 USD (after referral and trade in of Deus Ex GOTY) - the game is effectively 33USD (consider the 7 is spent on a future purchase) for the Augmented Edition
