An arma sale would be awesome :applause:

@TripJack
Oh, that would cool, if they had everything ARMA 2 on sale:
ARMA 2 [base game]
ARMA 2: Op Arrowhead [stand-alone expansion]
ARMA 2: Combined Ops [ARMA 2 + Op Arrowhead package]

@TONY
I see you guys do NOT sell ARMA 2: Reinforcements [stand-alone pack for ARMA2: British Armed Forces + ARMA 2: Private Military Company DLC content].
Ever think of inquiring to Meridian 4 about getting that pack?

Or even selling ARMA X Anniversary [ALL ARMA 1 + 2 content]?
I don't know if Meridian has rights to selling ARMA anniversary, though...
I know Bohemia (the dev's) did self-publish ARMA X on Steam and Gamersgate.

Hey Tony,

So is the MAYhem sale going to be one big sale, if so does it have a starting date? Or is it going to be something like different deals each week?

Here's hoping you can squeeze FFXI Ultimate Abyssea somewhere in there for 75% off. I'll definitely be getting Football Manager 2012 for $7.50 though.

We're working on getting more of the ARMA series, but a big part of the issue is that the rights to that IP are really complex apparently.

The MAYhem sale will have different deals for periods of time (new deals every couple of days essentially) and we'll revisit some deals. It starts Mid-May, still locking down an official start date as we get more deals in and start flighting them.

FFXI UA will be 60% off btw.

Alright, we're trying something new if you like it let me know (and tell your friends :) ).

We've recently put up Preorders for "A Game of Thrones" and we're letting our customers choose between Steam and non-steam (ActControl in this case):

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00806YCIC - Steam Version
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007ZT4URI - ActControl Version


In both cases customers will get a $10 GC (good for use on most products on Amazon.com not just video games).

I'll be posting this on some other sites as well so if you see it elsewhere don't be surprised :).

Yeah, the amount of IP changes, publisher changes, different versions of their games, and game name changes [Original Op Flashpoint getting recently retitled to ARMA 1] is kind of crazy. :P

We actually looked at doing this, unfortunately, for QA purposes our system actually checks the code we associate with a product with the binaries we distribute, so in the case of the Steam version of this game we're actually just going to distribute Steam keys.

We literally can't associate a Steam key with a non-steam build, this failsafe is in place so we don't accidentally associate keys with a product it will never work for.

Now, I don't really mean this for GOT, since the game isn't even out yet [you expect DRM on brand-new games]...
What if you guys gave a DRM-FREE Build [to download through Amazon DVG] and also give the player a Steam key [to plug into Steam]?
Would that get around the failsafe?

It would not. Our system is set up with a binary value for "distribute key" 1 means "yes distribute key" this activates the failsafe system which looks for a key to associate with the game and checks for it. 2 means "no do not distribute key" and then checks to make sure that the build has no DRM associated with it, if it does (Steam in this case) and we try to associate a key it errors out.

I'm working on getting Steam codes for Divinity II: Dragon Knight Saga so we can offer a DRM free version and a Steam version, but we won't have a DRM-Free + Steam version.

This is still in the works though, I'm hoping we get it set up before the MAYhem sale, if we do both versions will be $5.99 each and customers will be able to choose between 100% DRM free or Steam.

The thing is, I don't think Double Fine ever updated Non-Steam builds of Psychonauts PC themselves [for Majesco retail disc version or GOG version]...
There's complaints of that on the GOG Boards and even gamers trying making their own patch for Non-Steam versions.

Steam version is the most officially patched-up version (1.04) of Psychonauts PC.

It would be something Tony would have to talk to Double Fine about.

EDIT:
Honestly, DF should release a 1.04 patch and update for ALL Versions of Psychonauts PC.

Yeah that's the most complete version, thousands of hours worth of content. There's still a monthly fee but you get the first 30 days free. The monthly fee is annoying but in the end it's worth it because they're still constantly updating the game and adding new stuff so it's kind of like paying for perpetual DLC.

I played the game for three years from 07-10. The game was a blast, the only reason I stopped was because the friends I played with the most stopped. The game actually saved me money on games because while I didn't really increase my gaming time overall to play it it did become the only game I played pretty much so I stopped buying the bunch of games I usually did. I'm not really an MMO guy at all and was aprehensive but FFXI is pretty different, it's more like a an old school SNES Final Fantasy game (great story, great music, great battle system that actually requires skill, great job system, humor, mini-games and best of all it designed to be played with a controller) that you can play with friends and the community is very different from the typical PC MMO community. It's all about working together and helping each other to get stuff done. Also it's a very varied community because everybody plays on the same servers: whether they live in Japan or Europe or the US or Australia, whether on PC, 360 or PS2. A very large female player base too which makes for a better overall environment. I met a bunch of people all over the world that I still keep in touch with because of it.

Anyway I came back last summer to do the Abyssea content because there's not much to play during the summer and since I live in the desert and it gets up to 120 in the shade here I have to spend most of my leisure time indoors. I had a blast last summer so I figured why not do it again this summer, they raised the level cap since last year and added a lot of content plus I still need to finish the Wings of the Goddess storyline; the only one i haven't beaten yet. It'll keep me busy until all the fall blockbusters.

Wow, sorry for rambling on for so long, I'm just passionate when it comes to FFXI, it's such an under-appreciated game. Lately a lot of people are going nuts for Xenoblade Chronicles (which is a great game), well FFXI plays a lot like Xenoblade only a lot better and with other people.

Also i wish Stacking would be a bit cheaper next week. $5 would be soo good.I already have other 2 too.

Please don't spread misinformation. That heavy grind and difficulty from when the game launched was curved drastically as time went on and now it's almost too easy. The game has really evolved for the better in that regard and I think now is really a great time for new players because you can level jobs very quickly (via Grounds of Valor and Abyssea) which opens up the whole game to you, the story missions, the endgame stuff, etc... Where it would take many months of intense playing to level a job to maximum level when the game launched, now you could get it there in a couple of days if you really wanted, so even playing very casually you could get maximum level in a couple of weeks.

But you're right when the game launched in 2003 I tried it for a bit and quit because after 3 months of playing pretty intensely I was like only level 25 and still wasn't high enough to unlock advance jobs or continue with the story which is what I wanted to do. I think that turned a lot of people off. Also nobody knew what they were doing back then the Bradygames guide was a joke that barely had any useful info in it. But now with online resources like FFXIclopedia and FFXIAH.com the game is much easier to grasp and master.

re: GOT RPG

Tony what additional DRM, if any, does the Steam version have? I am interested in the game but this is very important to me to know. I am very suspicious of Focus Home Interactive. The prior Game of Thrones Strategy game they put out is Steamworks (all versions) yet they still added additional DRM on top of that. I bough it and was extremely displeased to say the least.

If you can confirm for 100% sure that the Steam version of this new GOT RPG has no additional DRM beyond Steam I will buy it but I will not if Focus is double or triple DRM dipping and and added more (imo unnecessary) DRM on top of Steamworks.

@TONY

I am the polar opposite. I hate DRM free and don't want it. I want Steam. I am definitely interested in D2: DKS for Steam even though I already own the non-Steam version. :-P

It's fine that you don't want it but I am just putting it out there that some people do.

It goes back to the whole TASTES GREAT/LESS FILLING thing I mentioned before, I think people are split between DRM Free and Steam (with everyone pretty much hating non-Steam DRM but viewing as a necessary evil sometimes) so having both options is a good idea as far as I am concerned.
