They might have run out by now, though.

Edit: they just sent me a Snapshot key

Very cool, I asked a question (about Closure) and it was answered in about five minutes. Who knows if I'll get a key or not, but thanks for the heads up. :)

I love it when game devs do cool things like that. I asked them a question, but even if I don't get a key, these games will end up in my library eventually one way or another :P

They're giving out keys at random now, so not everyone who posts a question is going to get one.

My snapshot question, about it's difficulty, was answered:

"Snapshot's difficulty is equal to the amount of time you want to put into it. The bare minimum of content to complete the game will be challenging, but nothing too crazy. If you want to hunt down all the secrets in the game however, you're looking at some crazy puzzles and platforming madness. ;D"

And a key about 35m ago. Nothing from the Closure people yet.

I find that pretty ironic. We may just be left wondering, "What if I had submitted my question just a little bit earlier?" :lol:

So I have decided to buy crysis maximum edition. It is 7.50 on amazon and steam right now. My only question is which one I should get? I'm thinking origin because it is an EA game, but steam because that's where all my other games are. Any suggestions?

Steam. May as well keep it with all the others.

It's preference, really. There are a few EA games on steam that can also be activated on Origin, but I don't know that Crysis is one of them.

Alright, was mainly asking to see if one played better than the other, got updated more frequently, or maybe has less DRM. But if it's mainly preference I guess I should go with steam.

If I were you, I'd buy it off of steam. Then try and see if you could get a CS rep from origin to add it to your origin account. There's no guarantee that you'll get somebody to add it for you, but from what I hear some people have been able to get them to add it for them. And you'd have to go through the same process to add it on Origin if you bought it off of Amazon.

Of course, if you buy it from Amazon, you also get a copy that you can play outside of Origin. They also have a policy of granting new keys if you run out of activations on a game with activation limits. So there's that to consider as well.

EDIT: hadn't refreshed the page in a few minutes. Didn't see that you already made your decision.

Still haven't quite made the decision. Haha your post only added to my confusion. In the end, Id probably regret not getting it on steam. Plus if I have to talk to a CS rep just to get it on my origin account, well that just seems like to much of a hassle. Thanks for that post, I will definitely go for steam now.

Yeah, I got Crysis Max from Amazon and even the Amazon key for crysis did not activate on Origin. Had to chat with a rep to get it added.

I'd only get it on Origin if you somehow found the Origin version cheaper. If you end up thinking about buying Crysis 2, grab the maximum version on Steam. Apparently it has no DRM (aside from the Steam DRM).

I grabbed Crysis 1 ME on GameFly during their summer sale for $4.50 or so. Haven't seen that low anywhere since.

Who knows if the key will activate on Origin though. Haven't bothered to try yet.

It's okay, I got an A Virus Named Tom from the last developer reddit giveaway, which is a fun game btw.

I was of the mindset Amazon would be the place where I'd get the Crisis series so I can always be guaranteed a key that works. Do all the Steam Crysis games have a 50 activation limit now?

Edit: Ok C1 has fifty activations and C2 is drm free. Is Warhead considered part of 1?

I've found that customer support can activate keys on Origin without too much hassle. They did that for me for the Saboteur because my CD drive broke down and I couldn't install the disc.

I wasn't able to simply add the key to my account, however.

Speaking of BL2 pre-orders. Does anyone know if any saved game unlocks these skins? Or do I need to get off my but and get a complete game save?

O wow, Gearbox lets people in the D/FW area focus test their games. Ugh, the're way up in NE Plano.



I focus tested Borderlands for them. I think the NDA I signed was for 5 years. Was pretty cool they gave us snacks and drinks when we went.

Exactly the reason I canceled my Borderlands 2 preorder, there won't be any time for two large loot driven games.

The Basement Collection's fan discount was a limited time thing apparently. I wish I would have known.

I wish I had known that too, was considering picking it up until I saw the discount disappear.
