Since I've never preordered with Amazon before, does Amazon do anything like releasing keys early if the game goes up for preload like XCOM just did on Steam? Or do they just stick to the normal release date?

Yup they sometimes do that.

For the gamefly sale price match, is it still coming?

Let's see that price match on Spec Ops: The Line now. :)


I think I'd finally bite on Spec Ops if it's PM'd. I wish I could add both Spec Ops and the EA pack to the same order for the coupon code tho. I think I'd use the coupon on those two if I could rather then hoping it stays live for the Batman pack.

They give you the keys as soon as they get them. We had BL2 keys 4-5 days before release.

Steam summer sale had Saint's Row the Third with ALL DLC for $13.29. That was never matched although I remember it being mentioned for Amazon's Labor Day sale. I guess it never went through. :P

Or how about 90% off just the dlc for us suckers who bought it too early? :bouncy:

How do you tell how a game is tagged on Steam?

Use http://cdr.thebronasium.com/sub/search

The easiest way to find the sub ID is to go to the appropriate regional Steam store, navigate to the game you want, and hover over the 'Add to cart' button. The address will be something resembling 'javascript:addToCart(SUB_ID_HERE);'. Just search for that sub ID on cdr.

The name for the sub will be the first line in the description section if you're viewing the game via someone's inventory or the trade window. Region restricted games will have a line that says 'onlyallowrunincountries' in the 'Extended Info' section at the bottom.

Note that this only applies to restrictions Steam enforces. If the game uses other DRM or online services (like GFWL), there may be other regional protections in place like IP blocks.

So I can assume that if the sub ID is the same in the US steam store and regional steam store it's the same item I and won't accidentally be getting a non-US game if trading?

That's right. But you also need to check for any tags the games may have in Steam inventories. Sometimes Steam releases games untagged/region free then locks them or vice versa

It was really funny when they recently locked Borderlands 2 Season Pass, that NEVER happened before :D

So take time to look at what is being offered in the trade interface. Pretty standard advice. The info on different regional versions of games is good stuff, though. Thanks.

The product page is currently down so I think it was an advertisement error. Get Games does not even carry all the individual DLCs for Saints Row 3

Nope, it doesn't work that way

When a game is region free at first and people get them they are still region free, it is just that when somebody "buys" the new locked version that gets the different Sub ID

Regardless of GetGames, it appears that Saint's Row the Third has not been price matched to Steam's sale http://www.amazon.co...s row the third

We should at least be seeing that I assume.

Does the Anno 2070 Digital Deluxe edition include all the DLC associated with the game? I'm not familiar with the series, but I want to try it out.

Anno 2070 comes with some really bad DRM (Solidshield Tages 3 machines activations limit).

Take this in consideration before buying the game.

And last I heard, it had always on DRM.

Did that get patched out?

Nope, still has always online DRM, your save files are stored on the Ubi servers and you need to login everytime to play the game. If the servers are down you're pretty much screwed.

I just checked and I believe that is the $5 pre order credit we got from buying the THQ pack. My page shows an additional $5 off of DSII as well and I got the THQ pack.

I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested

I didn't get the THQ pack though. Haven't bought any games from Amazon for a few weeks now. I do sometimes grab the Free App of the Day and my wife sometimes gets credit for doing that so I assumed that's it.

But I'm also happy to not overthink it and just enjoy my 73% savings :lol:

Is there a way to check what your promo credit is for? I have $24 in credit, but every time I try to check out with a game, it doesn't apply any of the credit. I can only assume that this is because that credit is only valid on certain items, but I'll be damned if I know what games they might be.
