Any opinions of Syndicate? I really don't care that it's not faithful to the original and I enjoy shooters.

I picked it up, haven't played it. $5 is usually as cheap as EA games go online, rarely $2.50.

From what I have heard it's solid, but better in coop.

hmmm. I won't have any friends to play with on PC. Maybe I'll just wait for the 360 version to drop.

It wasn't extended. The new deals ended on the 26th. They just don't expire until the 27th.

This isn't as good a deal as 1600 MS points for $10, BUT, you can buy 400 MS points for $4.99 and it still kicks out a $5 January game download coupon.

I managed a brief look at Syndicate's co-op earlier. Looks like very few people playing (Hopefully more after this sale and people download it) but it seems promising. Vaguely Left 4 Dead/Payday-esque in that you run around a reasonably sized map and it spits objectives at you and waves of enemies run at you to get murdered. Enemy variety seems fairly decent and the few guns I messed with had fairly distinct handling.

Way too much bloom and way too low FOV though.

I decided to pass on syndicate myself, maybe it will get added to the 2012 list though and end up free after coupon in January. I used the rest of my amazon credit on 3 more copies of Zeno Clash for giveaways though, link in sig =)

Amazon has been very, very good to me this Thanksgiving. I now consider Amazon DVG shopping part of my Thanksgiving weekend tradition:

  • Eat
  • Food coma
  • Waking up every 15 minutes to check this thread for recommendations and little gems
  • Eating again
  • Small food coma relapse
  • Purchasing something MysterD recommends
  • Registering that game on Steam
  • Deleting game in Steam library from last sale to make room for new purchase above
  • Downloading...
  • Snack/meal (one and the same at this point)
  • Binge digital game purchase of handfuls of bundles tabbed in Chrome
  • "What the hell am I doing?!"
  • Check forum again. F5 on last page to catch straggling posts.
  • Click on phantom page/click on advance arrow with no results.
  • "Really, what the hell am I doing?!"
  • Fall asleep registering new game bundle Tony launches.
  • "What the hell have I done?"
  • Let purchase shame give way to satisfaction of even longer Steam/Origin library list.
  • Feel a pinch of shame at all the light grey entries in Steam library list.
  • Swear to "get to them soon".
  • "Yep, I really did it this time..."

Figured I'd get a response along those lines. :P Really though, it seems like they're just winging it rather than going by any real legal basis. I don't see how it could apply to only some digital goods rather than all of them. For that matter, I don't understand why it applies to any digital goods at all.

Maybe this isn't the place to ask and I apologize if I am contributing to a thread derailment, but I'd sincerely like to know. I love Amazon and think their prices are great and I will continue to purchase from them (including PCDD). But if I'm going to keep the CA in CAG then I'm going to go with the cheaper, tax-free alternative if given the choice.

Just a heads up for those of you buying games that have to be activated on origin. You might want to run it in a Virtual Machine environment, because it apparently (or allegedly I should say) likes to comb through your system alphabetically. For what reason it would need to do this, your guess is as good as mine. This isn't my photo. It was posted on the Steam forums for Kingdoms of Amalur 11 hours ago (A thread for this bundle on sale actually). But when someone told me a month ago that Origin did this stuff and sent the info back to EA, I bought non-origin copies of all my games (Mirror's Edge, Alice:Madness Returns,etc) and un-installed Origin.

I've been thinking recently games like Mass Effect 3 and Dragon's Age 2 that can't be had anywhere else, so I thought about re-installing Origin, but definitely in a "safe" environment all to itself. Informed customers are the best kind. Thought you should know. And just to be clear, this isn't to steer people away from Origin, hell I'm seriously thinking about re-installing it. But if it's still the "root-ware" it's made out to be, I want to keep it isolated from anything it has no business snooping into and sending wherever without my approval. Amalur still would cost over $80 for the base game and all DLC on Steam. Re-installing Origin for this deal is worth it.....if it can be relegated to just being a client and not mal-ware.....allegedly.

What's the one that you use? Third-party or MS'? or did you buy a 360 Controller for Windows and it came with one?


I get deals on microsoft stuff so i bought the controller for windows pack and sold the extra controller.

Its a great investment if you have an xbox and dont mind moving controllers around or have/want an extra.

Well, I didn't include Amalur in the list cause it only requires an Origin Account and an online activation (something Mirror's Edge and Alice: Madness Returns also did, they did not need the client open to run). But I'm still gonna sandbox the hell out of the client. Can't be to careful. Also, is Steam the only place to pick up the Weapons & Armor bundle?

Do you sandbox Steam?

And Origin sells it too ( Weapons and Armor).
