Do you plan to make any notations if a title can be activated on Steam?

I'm a noob with Steam. What does activating do?

It puts the game in your Steam library and permanently ties it with your Steam account. It makes it as though you purchased it on that platform.

Yeah, I honestly think that game is a sleeper title. I'm going to fire it up tonight and check it out, but it looks interesting.

Have you started playing yet? What do you think?


I played Sacred 1: Gold a while back - yeah, it's good.

But, Sacred 2: Fallen Angel is awesome.
Just make sure if you play that, that it's all patched-up.

I wish Sacred 2: Ice & Blood [expansion] got a USA release, but CDV [US Sacred 2 publishing right owners] and Deep Silver [Sacred series IP owner + owned International publishing rights of Sacred 2 series] never came to an agreement to get it released here, since they blocked USA version of FA from working w/ International version of I&B.
Same goes for Sacred 2: Gold [Sacred 2: FA + Ice & Blood], as well - it never got a USA release.
You'd have to Import it, if you could find it.

According to the reviews for disciples II, The software that downloads from amazon is not the entire gold edition. Is this true? or is it fixed yet?


So this question was just ignored? I was wondering the same thing, hesitating because of it.

My apologies, the question was not ignored, I assumed that the endorsement from your fellow CAG above was good.

I just ran down the answer with our QA group, we just downloaded the game and here is the answer:

When you download the game you'll get:

1. The Base Game
2. Dark Prophecy - which is packaged to include the content (read expansions) listed on the page.

Does that make sense? Please let me know if there is still confusion.

Cheers,
Tony

Sorry if that came of as me being an ass, didn't mean it that way at all. I seen that post, but it didn't necessarily address the issue of whether the pack included the expansions that were supposed to be included. His post was an endorsement that the game worked, but not necessarily that it included the proper expansions. Sorry for coming off in a negative way, and thank you for clearing that up. Sold! :D

One more question, if you will. All of these games being offered, have you (not necessarily you personally) checked the downloads to ensure that they are all working properly? Also, these downloads will be available forever right?

Despite the gibberish, which isn't a problem =], I appreciate you answering my questions, gonna go ahead and grab Jagged Alliance 2, Sacred Gold, and Disciples II Gold. Thanks again, it's really a great feeling to have an Amazon representative here that's as down-to-earth as you are. Responding from your phone, and even stating it! This is what I like to see, a company that isn't afraid to linger among the common folk as one of our own. =] Keep it up! :D

Is there any chance of the DOTW getting extended? I would love to pick up Dead Island but I really want to use my $20 Gears of War 3 coupon to bring the price down a little further.

Also, (like most people) I think its great that there is an Amazon downloads rep on CAG now. I spend a few grand at Amazon every year and I plan to start throwing some more money their way if these deals keep coming.

Glad the community here is as excited to have me as I am to be here. Dead Island isnt't a deal of the week. We regularly discount many new releases by 20%. You can see what titles this applies to here:

www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/ref=bt_atcg_mine_mm?ie=UTF8&ie=UTF8&docId=1000718431&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1TRCMWR4H9XXPJFNKYFN&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1317604222&pf_rd_i=979455011

We haven't announced when we will change the price on any of these titles yet so I would just check back when you are ready to pull the trigger on DI.

Cheers,
Tony

F1 2011 comes out in a couple of days, any chance of seeing it added to the 20% off list? Just going to go ahead and buy it on Steam tomorrow, if we don't hear anything.

Doesn't look like this one is even getting a disc release on PC, so you aren't competing with the Amazon retail side if you announce something.

Sorry, I was out of town this weekend, and although I was checking and trying to respond to the community here in a timely fashion, I must have missed this. It sounds like you likely already made a purchase though. If you did, I hope you're enjoying the game!

Funny that you were asking about a racing game in a thread that was about to be updated with a deal for a different racing game.

I didn't purchase it yet, I was giving you a chance to answer. I still didn't really get one, so I'll take it as a no.

Great price on Test Drive Unlimited 2. Going to buy a second copy of that one for my daughter's gaming pc. She's 10, and did the entire build herself (with supervision of course).

A very good choice, this was a somewhat under loved game when it released. My little girl has loved it all along, and I have enjoyed tooling around the city on it as well.

Your 10 year old daughter built her own Gaming PC? I don't think I started on any hardware work until middle school...and even then with heavy supervision. That's impressive.

Sorry for the lack of an answer. To be more direct, I checked our release calendar and it doesn't look like we'll be carrying F1 2011 at launch.

Glad to hear you'll be picking up TDU2, and I really appreciate you giving me the opportunity to respond. Hopefully next time it will be with "Yes, we have that game, and here's the awesome price we are selling it for"

Cheers,
Tony

I appreciate the response. Still got me in under the pre-order window, $5 off at Steam is better than full price.

She did in fact build it herself, starting from just the bare components. We used the newer AMD chipset with crossfire across the cpu/video card, and one of those smallish cases. I didn't want to destroy expensive components if we had an accident or two. ;)

Only one game this week? You guys are slacking here. :booty:

Just kidding, of course. ;) I'm not much of a racing fan, so I will have to pass this week. I'm still saving up as much Amazon gift card monetary as I can to apply towards my Guild Wars 2 pre-order (saving a whole 5% at the moment! :lol:). And I'm sure you might not know at the moment, buttttt.. you wouldn't happen to know if GW2 will be one of those "20% New Release" down the road, would ya? :lol::lol::lol:

And I agree with a lot of others above: it's definitely great to have a representative from Amazon hanging around here (and quite frequently, at that!). Perhaps that second place you guys got last year in the Customer's Choice Award was well-earned. :) Surely you guys will claim first place this year, yeah? ;)

TDU2 is an awesome game. I look at it as a less arcade and more detailed version of Burnout Paradise. Buy it if that intrigues you.
