Got the F.E.A.R. pack. Thanks Tony!

However, I already have the first game, would anyone be interested in a F.E.A.R. key for $2.50 Amazon GC?

Picked up the Batman deal for the backlog. I pretty much gave away AA to a friend may hear, so it will be nice to have a copy on the PC. Plus, my PC is a lot more capable than it was when either game was released so that made it even better. Thanks Tony.

Spec Ops: The Line: This is the first game that ran a little laggy/slow on my laptop :( Even on super low. So either it is really demanding (can sort of see) or maybe not well optimized? This is a fun TPS shooter so far. I love the setting (Dubai) and the shooting is good. Storyline is the strong point on this (not usually the case in shooters lbh) so that is a huge plus. I can see myself enjoying this game a lot.stem.

Does your Laptop use Nvidia Optimus? Make sure that your discrete GPU is selected

This. I had a weird issue with my wife playing Sims 3 on the laptop. It was SET to run the game with the GPU, but would actually run it using Onboard graphics. I still don't know how I fixed it, but I tried fiddling with the optimus settings of which.to choose switching which graphical unit used back and forth, I think even upgrading drivers and Optimus profiles. Eventually it stuck. Only time it had ever happened.

One thing that will help is enabling the system tray icon.for Optimus. Black.and white means onboard, and a color graphic means discrete. Hover mouse over icon if you aren't sure, it will tell you.

Gamersgate has Need for Speed Run for $5 today. I wish that Amazon would match that price as I have Amazon gift credits. I also wish Amazon would re-run the Need for Speed Collection again as I missed it the last time.


It was Prostreet, Undercover, Shift, & Shift 2. No reason to stress too much over those entries.

I don't know your laptop specs but it runs smoothly on High with my GeForce 9800 GTX+ so it can't be too super demanding.

I'm really enjoying the game (think I'm coming up on the end) except for two minor quibbles:
(A) I dislike vehicle missions in my shooters. Fortunately this game has them at a minimum but I just don't like it when a game turns into a shooting gallery and takes away the option of movement on your part.
-and-
(B) Those "Heavies" take me out of the game. Not that it's realistic that I can get shot, hide behind a sandbag and heal up in ten seconds, but those dudes taking a couple RPGs to the chest just make me roll my eyes and detracts from the experience. Yeah, I know: Shoot 'em in the face

I'm mainly just grousing though. The game itself is solid and was a great buy for the $5.99

I really hope you guys can sign Zenimax & Bethesda (RAGE from Id Software; Elder Scrolls series; Dishonored from Arkane Studios; etc)...

Seriously, it looks like from the reviews, Dishonored looks like it turned out awesome...

So here are my mini reviews/first impressions on some of the games on sale:

The Darkness II: This game is just great fun. Full disclosure, the first game is one of my favorites and I finished on the 360 a long time ago. This one is just as much fun, if not more. Just non stop action, shooting, gutting, tearing apart, etc. I heard it's short so I can see myself finishing this one up this week.

Spec Ops: The Line: This is the first game that ran a little laggy/slow on my laptop :( Even on super low. So either it is really demanding (can sort of see) or maybe not well optimized? This is a fun TPS shooter so far. I love the setting (Dubai) and the shooting is good. Storyline is the strong point on this (not usually the case in shooters lbh) so that is a huge plus. I can see myself enjoying this game a lot.


Finally, can barely get away from Sleeping Dogs. Goodness that game is awesome, addictive, beautiful! Seriously, I spend time just driving around sometimes looking at the city. Driving is great fun. Spent 10 minutes beating the wheelie record for my steam friends! Love the steam integration on it. The combat is nice and fun to me especially with the counter system. At first I had a hard time, but once you get the counter system and environment kills down it becomes easier. Honestly, I already played through the first part before on the 360, but replaying it on the PC was just as much fun and I can't wait to see where the story goes.


Totally agree with your opinion on these games

Is Ambient Occlusion enabled ? if so disable it

For Oblivion - you should ask for Oblivion GOTY Deluxe Version, since that comes w/ EVERYTHING - even including the 9 DLC's.

Oblivion GOTY (Regular) only comes w/ Oblivion + Shiv Isles + KOTN...
It's MISSING the 9 DLC's.

For some reason, Bethesda ain't selling a Separate "9 DLC Only Pack" - which would help those gamers out who ONLY have Oblivion GOTY (Regular) and might actually decide to upgrade just to get those 9 DLC's.

Does anyone know if the key for Grand Ages Rome from the Viva Big Bundle of Games is for Steam? I tried it without luck. I'm downloading the game through Amazon to see if I have to enter that key in the software directly.

The other keys got activated in Steam succesfully (Cargo, Storm Frontline Nation and Shadow Harvest Phantom Ops).

Wow, I didn't know any of those keys activated on Steam. Might keep an eye out on Storm and Shadow now.

It is one time use per account. If you already used it once that is why the error is coming up. If you haven't used it at all then the code might be dead.

See this - from Tony's Post #2 in the thread about important extra information:

Notes on price matching:

1. Amazon DVG doesn't match physical disc deals
2. AND doesn't match International digital download deals - i.e. Gamersgate, GreenManGaming, GOG & GetGamesGo.

Steam had them all at $5 (not all of them GOTY) during summer. So I can see Tony donig a moro/oblivion for 5 and maybe the other two (f3 and LV) for say 7.50? You're prob right - 10 is a bit too cheap but maybe 12.50?

I think it can ONLY be used once, though...


See this post here:



EDIT:
Yes, it's ONE time usage for this particular "OCTOFUN1" code, see here:


Thanks! I think I came too late :(

I only wanted Batman AC (already have AA GOTY)... and with that discount it would be a nice price!. I'll wait until next time...

The code is done for now, we're analyzing impact and determining if/when we want to run another.

You should get your key by 9PM PST. With pre-orders like this we start processing payment a few hours early because there are so many orders.

There's a lot of technical wizadry that goes into changing the release date on a product (pre-load and key delivery are tied to release date/time) and we took ALOT of XCOM pre-orders, we didn't want to monkey around with it so close to release.
