I know this isn't very CAGgy of me but honestly at this point I'm not going to squabble over 68 vs 88 games for $15. I'd rather get what I can sooner then to have months and months or more go by and then realize I have half or more of the games in that pack.


^_^ I'm totally with you. I think a lot of us are anxious for the 1C pack in some form. >.> Though in my self-centered view I hope for as many racing games that I wouldn't buy individually.

Tony,

Sort of a general question about Amazon DD -- are you able to offer indie developer games where the developer self publishes? Examples being Robot Entertainment (Orcs Must Die, Hero Academy), Ronimo Games (Awesomenauts, Swords and Soldiers), etc.

Fake Edit -- Actually now that I ask I see you offer Vessel so it looks like, in some cases, you do. Are you able to say why Amazon doesn't offer some other stuff? Just wondering since most of the other DD storefronts carry them.

Would love to see the aforementioned and something like Miner Wars 2081, too (you already carry their 'arena' style game although that's published by a third party whereas the full fledged 2081 game is self-published (at least on Steam and elsewhere). I understand if you aren't able to comment on it.

Real Edit -- (Also also would like to see a Steam version of Alpha BROtocol which is published by SEGA).

So why not just do a 1C pack with just one Steam key. There exists in the Steam registry several entries for 1C Complete Collection so 1C could ask for single keys to that instead of individual ones.

Yes yes I know some people will whine and complain about not having separate keys but it's increasingly clear that you guys don't have the infrastructure to handle distributing that volume of separate keys for one purchase and there's no clear indication that would be fixed any time soon.

You could always do a single key 1C pack now and a multi-key one later.

The thing is, the longer and longer this 1C pack takes the more of their games that will end up in indie bundles and people will grab them making your 1C pack less and less appealing to the point where when it comes out a lot of people may already have most of the games in it anyway.


Quoted for truth. Motoki's back, and in full force!

On a related note, it's only because Tony has been so transparent about upcoming deals that we knew about the 1C bundle he was working on anyway. So, firstly a big Thank You to Tony for doing that, even though at this point he's probably wishing he hadn't. Secondly, It should also be noted how torn we all are by wanting to give the business to Amazon/Tony without just rushing to whatever's cheapest.

A month ago, I would have disagreed with Motoki's sentiments about just including all the games in one key, but considering how much of a technical nightmare this 1C pack has been for Amazon, I have to agree. There's no reason such a simple approach couldn't be a quick and easy end to the endless wait. Once the details get ironed out and the "new code" is in order, the original idea can be carried out.

I'd only suggest that the all-in-one Steam key bundle should be a bit cheaper than the bundle with separate Steam keys and some non-Steam games. Even if it's only a couple bucks.

Remember, not all the games in the 1C bundle are available on STEAM. Perhaps the bundle can include 1 game item that includes 1 key with all 1C STEAM games, and the rest of the games can be listed as standalones items within the bundle.

Just a thought.

Considering the state of Amazon's game download page, I'd actually prefer a single key vs. having to wade through that long page - activating dozens of keys. it would also create less of a clutter in the download page as well.

In Tony's defense about the current system not working for a separates bundle, my downloads page is already extremely ridiculous. Each time I scroll through it I find something and say "Hey, I didn't even know I had that!"

Not to mention pressing the "show key" button reloads the whole page throws you back to the top...

I agree with you completely. And honestly, I don't really see the benefit of individual keys. It sounds like a pain to me to have to enter them in one at a time or to sell/giveaway the games you already have. Maybe I'm lazy. I don't care. This is America.

Yeah, as my collection grows, my downloads page is becoming annoying. I'd like it if it was handled like the wishlists; using multiple categories, notes, ability to sort, etc. (Though I do wish the wishlists would have a user selectable default sort option.)

Of course, it is by no means a deal breaker for me. Amazon and Tony FTW!

Some of Steam's own 1C bundles have games in them that aren't normally for sale on Steam. The racing bundle that they just had for the Autumn sale had A.I.M. racing and Streets of Moscow in it. Also the 1C complete pack on Steam last winter sale had A Time of Dragons and I think a couple of others not normally available by themselves.

While I'd love to get my hands on those at some point on Steam, at this point I will settle for 75-80% of the 1C games that are/were on Steam in a big pack with a single key if it will get it out the door in a reasonable time from.

I agree that the "show key" button does need to be reworked to not refresh the whole page and take you back to the top of the page.

I just wish Tony would release the 1C pack so I could stop reading requests for status updates and debate about the pack.

I still don't see the appeal (other than to pad one's backlog of games they never will play) but to each their own. I just wish it could get released so people could pester Tony about other issues -- like, say, signing up distribution rights with Bethesda. ;)

Just an fyi for those of you with this problem, if you're quick enough, you can click all of the show key buttons, or those that you want to reveal, and the page will only reload once, revealing all keys for the games whose button you pressed. Sure, they need to redo this page, but for now, that's what works for me.

The 1C Bundle has alot of great games, and some stinkers.

Games I'm looking forward to:

Kings Bounty Series
Fantasy Wars
Cyrostasis
Necrovision Series
Space Rangers series
Star Wolves series
Death to Spies
Men of War series
UFO series

I know these won't please everyone, but I'm very excited for the bundle.

Don't forget the Penumbra series.

I think some people want individual keys so they can give away/sell games they don't need or don't want.

Not to mention the advertised bundle included King's Bounty: The Legend, Armored Princess, Crossworlds, Platinum (all of them), and Armored Princess + Crossworlds as well I think. Basically you would almost be getting each King's Bounty game three times.

Then again, that was pretty silly.

The 1C bundle is a pretty good deal. I'm glad I got it on GG instead, though, because I was able to giveaway all the copies I didn't want so they didn't crowd up my digital library. I can't even imagine the complete mess it would cause on my Amazon. Either way, good deal but the very definition of hit or miss.

I can't even imagine the complete mess it would cause on my Amazon. Either way, good deal but the very definition of hit or miss.

since we're all dumping on the game library page ;), not being able to gift items gets very confusing. You basically have to keep track of which codes you've given away, and which ones you're keeping. And what's unfortunate is that the person getting the 'gift' potentially misses out on one of Amazon's great perks - namely being able to request a new key when their activations run out, since it's very hard to prove you own a key unless you're the one who originally bought it from Amazon.

I wonder if Tony would like to open a new thread/survey/vote/whatever and solicit more feedback about the downloader, storefront, and the game library page.

speaking of the downloader, i'd love to see an option to download AND silently install a game with just one click rather than having to come back a few hours later only to have to sit through an insall session. ohh, and picking our own download / install location wouldn't be too shabby either...

anyhow, Tony - we're all waiting for more of that face melting, wallet screamin, hamsta spinnin sale...:bouncy:

I really wish this 1C bundle would come and go so we never have to hear about it again. Part of me actually fears that the bundle will be so well or poorly received that it remains a topic of conversation for weeks lol. With that being said I will probably grab it, even though I already own several of the games, and I do hope they will be individual steam keys.

My question is though, with the Steam winter sale right around the corner what sorts or deals can we expect as a counter from Amazon. Also great work Tony, try not to let the 1C pack barrage discourage you
