its the deal of the week so until Saturday night

Thank you.

I was afraid it was going to end abruptly like how the $7.49 deal did. Got other priorities to attend to first before I can pick up this game.

I don't know why people get so frustrated after missing a deal like this? I know, if you like the game it sucks, but nobody is forcing you to buy it, it's just a great oportunity to buy some cheap games, it's not something that the seller have to give us all the time, it's a plus that you're lucky enough to get.

It's depressing how people think this is Tony's duty, if he wants to sell games no lower than $100 he can do it, of course we would not buy them but it's not forcing anyone.

it's feedback to the vendor that you like about a service you enjoy using.;) granted, some could use a bit of tact and lack the fine art of having an adult conversation, but in general Tony has been very open about what folks like and don't like about the service and I think that's one of the main reasons many of us will choose to stick with the service for a long time; you can't compete on price alone forever.

anyhow, I'm guessing Tony can filter out the occasional noise and rant.

Just played for a little over an hour w/ Prototype 2, according to Steam and Raptr.

I'm running Prototype 2 here on my PC:
i7 950; 1 GB of GF GTX 560 Ti; 8 GB RAM; Win 7 64-bit.


Your PC stats are almost EXACTLY the same as mine... :D The only difference is I have 6GB of triple channel RAM.

I have the first Prototype for Xbox, I'd be buying it primarily for Prototype 2 - is the sequel much of an improvement over the original?

The sequel is pretty good. The PC version has memory leak issues, which are noticeable even w/ my 6950 ATI gfx card, my i2500k processor, and my 8gb DDR3 RAM. Note about storyline:
Spoiler
Aside from that, it's slightly better than the original in most areas. The storyline is quite interesting and has some nice twists, much of the powers are similar but usually slightly better. You can assign one power to left click and one person to right click, which is quite nice.

For 10 bucks, it's definitely worth it. Though do note that even though I've been doing most of the side missions, I have just over 9 hours of gameplay and my saved game shows that I'm about 65% done (with the storyline).

About a third way through Prototype 2 and I have to say Prototype 2 had a much better story. Heller is one of the most retarded characters in memory...

I remember reading a fix for this. I can't find it anymore, anyone know of it? I'm having the same memory leak issues.

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.


I'm sorry but the price of it being $7.50 compared to $10 is the difference of a purchase for me.

I've passed up quite a lot of $10 games I would have bought if it was $6-8 instead.

I have to agree here. As far as Steam sales go, I pass up on $5 games quite often, but $2.50 is almost a guaranteed buy.

Tony I know you know say on the physical side of the games and I know you guys don't offer Bethesda games as DD but if you could pull any kinda of strings to get Skyrim for like $20-$25 for the PC, I appreciate it.....I need it Tony....I need it to live!

You should've been watching the TRU PC Games Blowout thread a month ago or so, when Retail versions of Skyrim PC; MW3 PC; Diablo III; StarCraft 2; and other major PC titles were $10 each...

I've been telling Tony for a long time I'd love to see him get Zenimax here (BethSoft, Id Software & Arkane Studios), but....who knows if Amazon DVG and Zenimax will ever come to some sort of agreement....

If you liked Prototype 1, you'll like Prototype 2. The story is presented better and seems more put-together, as its really building on top of what the first already one had.

It seems like there's always something to do in Prototype 2. Walk a little bit - boom, there's something around the corner - whether it's a side quest; an Ops enemy to battle (for extra unlocks); or some kind of collectible.

Seems to be more going on in this game.

Yeah I hear you. We avoided flash deals for a while but this opportunity with Gamespot provided too many opportunities just not do it. For example, it is now much easier for me to get bundles like what we're running now and next week approved for a 2 hour "test" and then move forward with a deal of the week shortly after.

In the end the tradeoff between the reticence behind flash deals and the opportunity to bring the customer better deals is slanted towards bringing you guys the best price.

I hope that helps explain, if it doesn't let me know and I'll give it another go.

Cheers,
Tony


The nice thing about Amazon flash sales is that its for 2 hours...where gamestop does a 500 copies sale....Im glad you let us know ahead of time what it will be....not necessarily the price but you give us hints

prototype 1 is badly ported too. cant even get it to run at higher res then 1280x720 :(

hmm, runs at 1920x1080 flawlessly for me.

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.

Wow, good riddance.... you seem like a douche anyway. You're really bitching about 2.50?

Which tells me that you and everyone else echoing those thoughts are the kind of people that buy games for the sake of them being on sale rather than actually wanting the game.

If you actually wanted the game you would spend the 10 dollars. A 3% price difference wouldn't sway anyone with interest in a game. It's 3%. I'd be willing to bet you guys have hundreds of unplayed games sitting on your computer and around your house.

in fairness, its a 33% increase over the flash sale price.

Math skills as strong as the logic ones.

If your purchasing calculus includes backlog placement (mine does), then being unwilling to spend an "extra" $2.50 on the deal is entirely justifiable, especially since these games will inevitably have future discounts, maybe as soon as the next Steam sale event.

If you plan to play them immediately, $10 is a great price.

Also, the troll is right; Steam is the devil incarnate.

Well at least one good thing came of him being here.

While trying to check, for myself, if he was actually banned, I discovered a nice feature that works with searching for users: if you somehow remember a portion of a user's name, but not their full username, you can use an underscore as a placeholder.

For instance, to search for me, you could use (Used spaces for clarity): "_ _ _ e r o s e". Not something I'd really use, but the nerdy CS major in me found it quite cool. 8-)

So I just ran Prototype 2 on my laptop and it played fine. I use integrated graphics, so I guess it is really hit or miss. How do you guys keep track of Frames Per Second? I'm sure mine are pretty slow but it's fine for me since I'm not much of a graphics person.
