I'm really excited about the THQ bundle (Homefront, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., etc). That is happening this Friday right? So many deals are getting posted my brain hurts.


I'll post a full lineup for Friday tomorrow afternoon. It is taking me a bit to slog through the BF stuff but I'm hoping to start posting stuff this evening.

Best open world game released thus far imo, not sure if its been fixed but there were major driver issues with AMD cards.

It was probably remedied with that big driver update recently but I can't confirm as I switched to Nvidia, other than that though for $10 it's an awesome deal.


AMD is promoting Saints Row 3 as one of the games in "Gaming Evolved" program for sometime now. The game is fully optimized on AMD graphics hardware, drivers, DX11 and AMD Eyefinity, and it runs great for me. So I am sure if there were any issues, they are fixed for sometime now :)

Well the issues (low framerate, especially while driving) stretched like 5 months into its release even though it was promoted as an AMD game, all I'm saying is be cautious and look into it.

Edit: I just checked the Saints forums and shockingly those problems still exist a year later, wow. It was still playable on my 6850 but I was getting like 28-35 fps when I should have been getting a lot more at the time (6+ months ago, mind you). Since its been so long since I've played I won't discuss it further, just look into it if you're on an AMD card, folks.

No, it isn't. Just because a company is promoting something does not mean it's running all that great. If you look at the game's tech help forum, there is a 64 page thread about the issue. A few promises to fix it, and a few small updates, but nothing substantial really came of it. Obviously not everyone is going to be affected, but it did affect a pretty decent chunk of people.

hello Tony,
quick question, If you are able to get Steam keys for Condemned, will the people who already bought the game be able to have a steam key also?

Yes we will, $5 promo credit towards a list of games starting in January. We'll be picking the initial list someone in December and then changing it throughout January.

Cheers,

Glad to see return of "Best-Sellers Of (Insert Games From Previous Year)" planned in Jan 2013. :D

I had severe performance issues with that game on my Nvidia card. I later replaced most of my PC and it worked fine afterward. It's not just AMD that had problems, and as far as I'm aware they claimed they were hard at work on a fix and then never did anything about it.

Yeah.. I tried playing it with my Radeon HD 7970 and my FPS consistently dropped to the low 30s whenever driving around. Game isn't optimized for AMD (probably not for some Nvidia cards too..), I think getting it to run well is luck based (having the exact system configuration).

Just tried it with my 7950. At 1680x1050 with everything jacked up high, I was getting 45-60fps in my car and 60-80fps out of the car and fighting. Worst I got was 35fps for a few seconds when I was nitro-bursting down a neon lit downtown street in the rain.

Like I said, it seems to be based mostly on luck. The reports I've seen aren't consistent, 2 people could have the same GPU with entirely different results. Then again, I haven't tried it in a couple months so maybe an update improved the framerate, I'm not really sure. All I know is overall, the game is poorly optimized. It's a much better port than SR2 was, but a fairly crappy one in general.

Definitely agree with this. Last year year I only bought a handful of games thinking the $5 would be worthless. Boy was I wrong.


Same here.

I've always bought a lot of games, but never thought I'd use up all those $5 coupons I acquired for the BSO Deals 2011 sale Amazon they had in Jan 2012...
...EVERY one of them got used easily.

Whereelse could you get, after using your $5 coupon...
Shogun 2 for $2.49?
Darkspore for $2.99?
Civ 5 for $4?
Civ 4 Complete for $4?

Even w/out the $5 coupon, those deals were still KILLER deals at the time.

What CPU? I was using an older CPU but it still fell within the requirements. Other people were getting the same problems with fully high end systems though. There didn't seem to be a common denominator.

It was definitely related to the outdoors, cause my FPS would be chugging along at 25, I'd drive through a tunnel and it'd rocket up to 60, then drop back down when I got back out onto the open street.

That is 75% off each game. I think this is unheard-of with Activision COD series :applause:

I do have both games, but I will make sure to tell all my friends ;)


I remember when Amazon DVG earlier this year on Valentine's Day, they had Modern Warfare 2 for $5...

Maybe the issue is DX11 related

I do hardware reviews for GPUs and all the ones I tested lately with SR3 had no issues whatsoever, so it is maybe specific to some hardware and/or software combinations

Edit: here is a screenshot for fps while driving and while walking :

Yeah, in December I placed zero value on the $5 coupon since I doubted there would be any tempting sales in January. I was so wrong. $2.50 for Just Cause 2 in Dec snagged me Civ 5 for $4 in Jan.
