You guys have issues with our download speeds? That's really surprising to hear we operate our technology on the same system that is used to process the data NASA gets from Mars.

Really surprised to hear about slow download speeds.

Well for anyone wanting an opinion on the casual games, here's some that have me interested:

Woody Two Legs and Zombie Pirates - haven't played this but this looks like it could be a decent tower defense type game.


Checked out the trailer for this one and bought it. It is basically a shmup in the water. You have a pirate ship and have to defend your treasure from other pirate ship in waves then there is a boss at the end of the level. I have only played the first level because I am trying to play in small doses so it will not be too quick.

Here is a trailer:

I have Pirates of the Black Cove through Capsule. If I buy the Origins DLC through Amazon, will I be able to redeem it to be used through Capsule?

Also, I have Cities in Motion that I got through GamersGate. Will the DLC that is for sale for this game work if I get it through Amazon?

Oh, I was just trying to get a feel on some of the more popular games on the casual list. I've bought quite a few games that I normally wouldn't buy based on user response and ended up having a blast with them.

As far as taste in gaming goes, I'm a fan of just about everything except hidden object type games.

Thanks for the reply and awesome deals Tony!



I'm kind of interested in looking at some of the casual stuff myself but I honestly don't know where to start since there is so much of it.

Are there forums where people hang out and discuss more casual games? The only one I can think of off hand are the Big Fish forums and it would probably not be a good idea to go there talking about Amazon deals. :-P

I can't personally attest until I get home but Metacritic scores are good overall with by far more positives on both the critic and user sides

http://www.metacriti...me/pc/alan-wake

For the Amazon download version there's only one review but the person gave it 5 stars, if you switch over to the 360 version though that has 246 reviews and is averaging 4 stars.

But if anyone else here has thoughts I wouldn't mind hearing them even though it's obviously too late for me to change my mind here.

I loved it - played it on the 360 and just recently purchased it for the PC.

I hope Alan Wake American Nightmare eventually comes to PC as well.

Well for anyone wanting an opinion on the casual games, here's some that have me interested:

Runaway Series - these aren't listed in the casual section, but are classic point and click type adventure games. You control the character by clicking on the screen where you want him to move, you explore environments for clues and items and then use the items to solve puzzles/challenges.

Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack The Ripper - another adventure game, but the Holmes series has gotten a bit more advanced when it comes to adventure games, you get to do alot more stuff and this game is pretty good.

Woody Two Legs and Zombie Pirates - haven't played this but this looks like it could be a decent tower defense type game.

Zombie Shooter/Alien Shooter series - honestly don't know if I can recommend these on Amazon since they have been in bundles and cheaper on Steam, but I was gifted the Zombie series by a generous CAG and it is tons of fun for a pick and play session top down shooter.

Hotel - Third person adventure game with some decent reviews, looks like it might be good if you like these types of games.

Alter Ego - Same as above, with a darker theme it looks, Bought this one myself but haven't played it yet.

Jekyll and Hyde - Same as above, looks like it might be cool with a cool theme.

These are really the ones I saw that weren't either Hidden Object, Puzzle or Time Management.

I enjoy Hidden Object games, but I know most people here probably aren't as big a fans of them. I saw some random platformer type games on the list as well.

I bought Big Rig Europe and am considering Bus Driver as both of those to me are casual brainless games, but I have to admit the controls on the big rig game are very very loose and not as realistic as I was hoping for.



Thanks for the advice

Ended up buying Sherlock Holmes and Woody Two-Legs based on your recommendations.
