Had a 20 dollar credit so I picked up NBA 2K12 for 4 bucks. Was planning on getting it for Xbox but I'll take the 60 dollar savings. I've played it once so far and I think I already got my money's worth.

Glad you like it! Are you playing multiplayer or single?

Will Amazon have Rage available for download soon? Have some credit I'd like to use. Bonus points if it's also part of the 20% sale :)

The 2K series has always had pretty bad online play on the PC, unfortunately.

But even without multiplayer, 2K12 is well worth $60, and I rarely say that about sports games. $24 is an absolute steal.

I don't have any word on this yet, but if/when I do I'll post it here immediately!

That is awesome, I'm glad you're digging the deal :). Who's your team? I'm from Florida so I'm a de-facto Heat fan...

I've heard Rage is 25 GB, it has a lot of issues on the PC, and it's going to be pretty expensive. I would suggest waiting a little longer for a patch and a sale, so that way when you do get the game it will work as intended. ;)

It sounds like most of the driver problems have been fixed by now. ATI and Nvidia were pretty aggressive about getting new drivers out there. I think I am going to wait a bit for a sale/price drop though.

its actually a 21GB install and yes this game was really buggy at launch it crashed on me a few times, had some bad screen tearing, textures popping. I installed the latest drivers and it did fix the random crashes and screen tearing but the textures still look bad in some areas. The game though is really good I'm liking what I've played so far.

Thanks for getting back to me, but I haven't been online for a couple days! It has not yet been resolved! I am still not being able to access it.

I still continue to get this message:

Hmm, I'm going to have to apologize here because this isn't something I've dealt with before. Have you tried contacting CS? They are top notch.

Let me know.

Just placed my order for platinum. Never heard of these games before, but loved the HoMM series. Looks like an amazing deal for the amount of content for $5.00. Also, the fact that amazon will give us another key if we exceed our activations is pro. I've always had good experiences in the past with Amazon CS. Thanks again for posting this deal, tony.

You need to check the Steam boards.

A lot of people - especially w/ ATI cards - are having problems still, even w/ the new patch - see this thread.
And people that had the game going before the new patch, they are now having trouble w/ getting the game running right now.

The patch has locked out some commands that people were using to fix the game, by making their own config files - since the game lacks a lot of in-game menus w/ various graphics options.

I'd say to let the dust settle and hopefully, Id releases that 100 GB texture pack, which Carmack mentioned around 50 minutes into the [very long] QuakeCon 2011 Keynote John Carmack - QuakeCon 2011 Keynote.

I'm playing this series on console, but this is a great price. Pair it with 1 and 2 from Newegg for $10 and you have quite a lot of PC gaming for little scratch.

Glad the CAG community approves of the deal this week :)!

Do you hear that? "Feed me!" "Feed me!"...I think your back catalog is trying to tell you something ;)

I kid, of course, I am picking it up even though I haven't finished 2 yet, but I plan on playing it with my brother pretty exclusively and saving single player for later.

Thanks for pointing that out!

Also, I posted a gameplay video (courtesy of Kosmos13x) for those who want to see what the gameplay looks like.

That's an AWESOME deal and worth every single penny.
I can't stress that enough.

Bought the AC:BH game a little bit back from you guys at Amazon for download, when you matched D2D's deal at $16.

What sort of DRM does Ass Creed Bro have? I remember earlier games in the series had required internet connection and I think securom, so I'm not sure I want this.

AC2 and AC:BH both use U-Play (UbiSoft DRM).

Basically, it checks for a Net connection and you signed into your U-Play account at every boot time.
If you get kicked offline, you can still keep playing [on the SP portion, naturally].
Saves are also stored locally on your PC now.

Thanks for the quick reply, but I'm curious what that last bit means. Did they have a point where your saves were stored online on your account? Meaning without a reliable connection, you couldn't access your save games?

I've used it a few times now and it isn't pervasive. What are your thoughts on it MysterD? Or anyone else who has used it?

Would love to get feedback from the folks who have used Ubi's experience so I can gauge how you feel about it...I have a pretty good grasp on how the group who hasn't tried it and don't want to feel :)

I actually had AC2 when it was "Always on" DRM (I bought it for like $15 retail box from Amazon, since the game tanked in sales, some time ago), before they scaled the DRM's measures down to what it is now and what they also decided to use for ACBH.

Personally, I think it's ridiculous for U-Play to want to check for me to be signed-in and my connection at every boot.
If you have a spotty or shoddy Net connection, this could be a problem.
Thankfully, I don't currently have a problematic Net connection.

It's annoying as hell that it wants to check every time I boot-up, and as much as I hate to say this, I've had no problems w/ AC2 or ACBH.
