From what I have played of the Harry Potter lego game It's enjoyable and fun. As for the Lego batman game. I have the second one and I like it a lot and from what I've read it's the one to get if your only going to get one lego batman game.


Star Wars: The Complete Saga is justly celebrated as the best of the LEGO games. I think I saw it on an all-time best PC games list.

Indiana Jones 2 is generally regarded as the weakest of the series. If you didn't like Indiana Jones 1, you'll want to skip this one. Others might fight it enjoyable to play, but you'd want to keep the purchase price under $5.

I would add Star Wars 3/Clone Wars to the list of weak entries. If you don't follow the cable cartoon series, the plot is incomprehensible. Objectives are poorly defined and have unintuitive solutions. All while scores of enemies attack.

The Harry Potters and Pirates of the Caribbean depend heavily on appreciation of the source material. If you don't like/haven't seen the movies, you probably won't like the games. In the Potters, players spend a good amount of time following a ghost around to reach the next task. By the midpoint of Years 5-7, we were fairly bored with it.

Batman 1 is lots of fun. It's older, so there's no dynamic splitscreen or dialogue. But the developers' not having to follow someone else's storyline is a real strength here.

Batman 2 is a bit short, but at Amazon's prices, that's nct really an issue. I found the city difficult to navigate, especially with vehicles, which are themselves difficult to control. The constant darkness and rain are a bit overwrought. The plot and dialogue are top shelf though.


Thanks for the info, I'll probably just pick up Batman 1 since I'm not too big a fan of Harry Potter (and I doubt casting spells would be nearly as fun as endlessly swinging away with a lightsaber), and LB2 has voice acting? Come on, part of the charm of the lego games is the comedic value from voiceless lego people. :cry:

They actually usually go live between 3am and 4 am EST. Maybe 5am if the hamsters are having a long night. ;)


The Squeenix Pack I waited 'til at least 7-9AM, prolly just an exception.

The reason was that they ran out of keys... multiple times. They never expected the demand to be so crazy. They had what they thought to be a weeks worth of codes but it sold out in less than 24hours and sent Tony scrambling for more codes which continually sold out withing hours. Eventually, due to people picking up so many doubles and what-not, demand kicked supplies ass and we got a nice voucher for the remainder (also majority) of the week.

Supposedly a great game, but the shitty DRM that stops you from playing after 3 hardware changes makes the decision to purchase much more difficult for me. That being said I believe Amazon provides you with additional keys in case you run into any limitations on that front so I suppose it isn't too bad.

For video games: Each game manufacturer has a different policy on how many installations are allowed with each product key. If you run out of installations for the product key you originally purchased from Amazon, please contact Customer Service and we will happily provide you with another key at no additional charge. You can install an unlimited number of times for personal use, however additional copies of the game for friends or family must be purchased separately.

It's an awesome game if you enjoy city builders, and this one has a plot driven story mode, which is kind of cool. And yes, it has really restrictive DRM.

I think it uses 3 activation only tages and also requires an always online connection, iirc.

You talking Nov 23rd Black Friday? Or the gamspot/amazon/twitchTV 2 hour Black Friday things?

If it's the former, Tony confirmed that the pack with Hearts Of Iron will be a Black Friday special.

Hey Tony

Apparently Space Rangers & Space Rangers 2 have been removed from steam. Both games are published by 1C (assuming that they haven't lost the rights to them) and would have been part of the 1C pack. Does their removal from Steam mean that they wont be part of that pack when you finally get it up & running?

Radical Entertainment is known for not-so-hot PC ports.

See Scarface: The World is Yours PC (performance issues and cannot remap your KB/mouse controls);
and both Prototype 1 & 2 PC ports (poor KB/mouse controls; performance & technical issues).

is this where we request deals?

Tony i don't ask for a lot but if amazon is available to price match or better yet top the Wifi Vita bundles this Black Friday, i'd love to see the AC:Liberation bundle go sub $200-- as a fan of the Assassin's Creed series and as someone with a large digital library of PSP games that aren't getting played because the battery in my fat first gen handheld lasts all but a half hour before dying

and i'm sure you get this all the time but we love what you're doing regardless of what requests are filled or not, thanks for all the hard work

So wait, Prototype @ $9.99 is this week's DotW? Basically the Deal of the Week is something that was cheaper a few days ago?

Yeah, I'll pass. In fact, and I know I will get flamed all to hell on this but oh well, I think I'll pass on Amazon DD as a whole and stick with other stores where I don't have to follow a forum thread religiously to figure out what deals are going on when or end up having the deal of the week be more expensive than it was a couple of days prior.

The $7.49 deal was part of an online deals show, in partnership between Gamespot and Amazon, which only lasts for two hours on Friday afternoons. We are fortunate enough that Tony shares the info with us here in advance.

Besides, the price difference is only $2.50... sheesh.

Why can't people just leave quietly without making any noise. Honestly, nobody really cares you missed out and I still find it humorous how people bitch and say they don't care, but care enough to complain and bitch about it here so obviously they care enough to waste their own time writing a message. The sign of not caring is ignoring something which all these non-carers can't seem to do. Just let the door hit your ass on your way out and MOVE ON with your life.

It's like everything in life, if you spend more time on something (wait in line on black friday in the cold, work harder in your job, hit on more women, work on your relationship/marriage, play golf like tiger woods since age 3 every day for 13 years, WATCH DEAL SITES ON GAMES), you'll do better in any of those areas.

If you don't have the time, don't expect to get the best deals.

And this deal was the 3rd time they've done this with posting on every single deal thread out there.

Damn, did I just get trolled?

I've never seen so many people cry about missing a 92% off sale and being given the option of an 89% off sale.

Like where do you people come from where you were brought up to be that stingy with your money? I understand what site I'm on but good lord it's just ridiculous. You obviously have very little interest in the game if you aren't willing to spend the extra 2 dollars.

You don't really have to follow the thread at all. Those limited time deals have been at the same time the past couple weeks. Check the deal of the week Sunday morning and then in for the flash-type deal on Friday. Twice a week is all you need. Following the thread just gives you more information on whats coming up. Plus it's filled with some really stand-up CAGers. It's not like you'd have to put up with the crowd that follows the PSN weekly deals thread...I could see why you wouldn't want to do that.
