Did we ever get an official answer if the Prince of Persias are DRM free? I hope at least Sands of Times is, the original disc version didn't have it. That game is a masterpiece, a must own!!!!!

You mean your going to tell your bank your taking full responsibility for the purchase. If something goes wrong, they won't help you.

After looking at the site, it's not legit. Looks like they sell keys from retail boxes.

Yeah I don't give a shit about that. My banks automatically don't let me buy anything outside of the USA. I can only "turn it off" for 3 months at a time.

also a guy from Something awful has to say about that site:

Yeah, I actually bought Borderlands 2 from them a few weeks ago. My experience was not great, but I did end up with my game so I can't complain. They don't appear to be set up very well for handling digital download keys, they seem to be primarily an old style boxed game shipper. And they don't seem to believe that the U.S. exists (don't know where you are) but I was still able to buy from them. I just told them I was in Canada when forced to select a country from a dropdown (that didn't have the U.S. obviously) and then put in my actual address, after which it was happy to tell me that I was in the U.S.. Then I just paid with paypal, so I didn't have to worry about any credit card security mess. It took them approximately 8 hours to actually get my key emailed to me, though.

So yeah, they're legit, they're just not very good.


If you're in Europe, they'll mail you the box and everything. If you're not, they don't bother shipping and just email you the key instead.

Well that APB credit put me over the edge on TSW. DLing now but it is taking forever. Slow slow DL speeds.


I just had my GF play for a while on the laptop.. she said it stuttered a bit to much for her and made her a little dizzy and gave her a mild headache. Hopefully you don't have the same trouble on yours.
She said she liked the game though, and is still planning on purchasing it tonight in the hopes that she can upgrade her computer in Jan/Feb and play it with me.

EDIT:
I see Drakensang: The River of Time is $5.
What's the DRM on that?
And do you guys carry that game's Philleason's Secret DLC?


You can probably pick up the whole Drakensang set with The River of Time and Phileasson's Secret DLC from eBay if you are ok with a DVD. Some guy there has it for ~$11 and < $10 every so often.

It's DRM Free though so no steam for steam lovers (still cheaper than even a 75% off steam price though which is 19.99 + 19.99 + 9.99).

It's more or less the same deal with getgamesgo, they sell only keys. But you are right, it's not a good idea to tell your bank you assume full responsibility, being victim of fraud is not fun at all, I've been there.

Great sale!!... but since I bought most of what Tony has thrown our way this year, I already got 99.9% of all games listed. First World Problem, I know...

Was just wondering if it would be possible to add these:

- Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes - I Am the Boss DLC (Steam)
http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B005O2TTCO/
(I already have the main game on Steam... just missing the DLC, which I haven't seen on sale yet)

- Mafia II: Digital Deluxe Edition (Steam) or Complete (Deluxe + DLCs)
(There is no way to "upgrade" a standard version to deluxe... so I'm still waiting to get to whole thing. Also, I own every other games in the 2K Mega Pack)

Thanks a lot!!

Also wanted to know if it would be possible to have a Steam version of Helldorado

Tony,

I have another annoying question on DLC pricing. I know there's no hard and fast rule you go by but currently there are around half a dozen Darksiders 2 item DLC priced at $0.50. From the same publisher, there's a bunch of $2.00 base Saints Row 3 item DLC with no discount but some 'content' DLC at 50% off (making it $3.50 each).

Then there's Hell Yeah (different publisher, Sega) that has a 75% off discount on the base game but no discount on the 'Pimp My Rabbit' item DLC and I recall you saying that you didn't want to do discounts where DLC goes under $1 but... there's the Darksiders 2 DLC that's $0.50.

Then, of course there's my ever illusive and highly sought after Warlock DLC discounts that may or may not see individual reductions. I'm not looking to game the system. I already have about four or five codes and I doubt I'll use more than those (nor set up some black market code/key factory) but I'm just trying to wrap my head around Amazon and their DLC pricing re: sales. Especially when publishers are usually willing to offer discounts on the same things on other digital download outlets. If it's a simple matter of: well, the Darksiders 2 stuff is $0.50 b/c no one is buying it and we want to try to move it, that's fine but... other than that... wazzup?!?!

    Really, Really Cheap

I see a lot of the Sims 3 expansions are on sale for the cheapest I have seen them. I have a question. I am not a big Sims player but I do dust it off from time to time.

Are any of these expansions worth buying? Do they add a lot of extra content? I am not really interested in 'extra furniture' but moreso extra 'world' stuff. Places to go, things to do. Etc...

So, anything that is a must have for an extremely casual Sims 3 player? I have about 14 hours total in the game. So, I am very casual with it.


Sorry for the slow reply, been catching up on the thread.

If you are looking at just the expansion packs and not the stuff packs, I would say one of the ones to get would be World Adventures which lets your sim go on vacation and have "adventures"

Ambitions just gives you more jobs (but does let you "play" some of them instead of just having your sim go to work) Late Night is fine, but not really needed. Generations gives you more interactions for your sims in different areas of their lives (young sims can "prank" other sims, older sims get memories)

Showtime, like Ambitions is not a must have expansion. Pets and Seasons are pretty much the same as they were in Sims 2, which is not a bad thing. You get extra seasonal activities and a wider variety of animals to own in "pets"

And finally, one to avoid is supernatural, which fills your town full of vampires, werewolves and zombies, but can (unless you run a fix) can mean that your town can have very little humans, but all "supernatural" beings.

So if you were to grab just one, go for pets (if you like animals) and if you don't want the hassle of that, then World Adventures gives the game a little extra dimension.

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!
