Tnx. That sucks. I am not a Origin fan.


No problem man. I'm not at all either, but it's a sacrifice I've made for better deals. We have to learn to live with it, because that's what EA is planning on using from now on, unfortunately... Damn Crysis 2...

Sorry for the confusion here, I try to make it super clear what activates on Steam by adding " - activates on steam" next to the deal.

Are you enjoying the game though?

Cheers,

Same here but I felt Darkspore was worth dealing with Origin. I may be in the minority but I feel that it is very enjoyable game with a lot of content and frequent updates.

I may not like Origin, but I'd be damned if I let that stop me from playing EA games. Spore, Darkspore, Mirror's Edge, all titles that I have on Origin that are SO worth the extra client. A very minor sidestep to play these amazing games.

Man, Darkspore looks like fun, but I want it to be a little cheaper. :( I try not to buy games unless they are 66% off retail. Someone convince me to buy this game and stop being so cheap lol. Has it ever gone on sale before?

I'm obviously bias but in this case you're talking about $2.09 as the difference between 60 and 66% on a 4-star rated game that your fellow CAGs have said is a good pickup.

I picked up a copy, and although I haven't played a ton of it, I'm loving it so far.

Just my two cents :). By the way, the insight on the 6% difference being important is helpful and I appreciate the honest feedback!

Cheers,
Tony

I've noticed! It is a good litmus test for deal pricing though, so I'm glad you're so vocal about it. To be fair though, this is the lowest this game has been by a longshot based on the research I've done. I think the next best sale on this title has been $25.

Damn, I think I'm going to have to bite with the knowledge that this is the best sale on the game so far. That 6% is what keeps me from going insane on Steam sales sometimes, so I established a guideline for myself to only buy games at 66% off or more. I've broken that guideline only once or twice in the last year and the two games I purchased were some of my most played titles (Borderlands- 250 hours PC, Borderlands 250 hours PS3) The second Borderlands 2 goes to 50% off or so, I'm gonna say "Screw the rules! I have money!" :lol:

Edit: where do you go to see the CD key for downloadable games on Amazon? I'd like to register it on Origin or whatever. :D

Woohoo! Glad you picked it up! You find your keys in "your digital items" located just above the cart symbol in the upper right area of whatever page you are on. Once you click on that link just click through to "your games and software library" and look for the are that has "Games and Software" as the header. Once you click you will arrive at your "Games and Software. Just find your product key there and you are good to go!

This has been fixed and the deal will run through the end of today (so until midnight) if randomdud still has friends to convince and brettsp wants to pick it up (you can catch it this time!)

Normally, I would jump on this at this price, but I'm trying to hold off on these hack n slash dungeon crawlers until Diablo 3.

Great price though.

Party on!!!

I can personally recommend this game especially to the people who liked Heroes of M&M. Plus this is (without a doubt) the cheapest I have seen this package ever.

3 games or a happy meal. Not a tough choice guys ;)

So some of my favorite games of all time would be Final Fantasy Tactics and Vandal Hearts, would this be along similar lines? Can anyone with similar tastes recommend this?

I can't tell if its quite as hero and character driven. Also, Ive never played HMM.

Seriously, anyone who has more then $5 in their bank account needs to purchase this. It's a no-brainer.

I'm currently (slowly) playing through Armored Princess which I picked up from Gamestop a few months ago for $5. And I thought that was a steal! Even though I've played through half of The Legend in the past, I'm tempted to get this just for Crossworlds.

This is definitely a very good price for a very good collection.

However, this is not the cheapest that King's Bounty Platinum has ever been. Devoted CAGs will remember it being $2.19 at Gamersgate on August 14th. :D
