I picked up the Bioshock 1/2 bundle for $5, hoping to gift the Steam keys to my brother.

I got a key for Bioshock 2, but not for Bioshock - what gives? The Amazon rep said they both activate on steam :(

Remember that SR2 it's a little unplayable on the pc, the port is really really bad. But the game is quite good.


That's what I hear, but I was trying to find something to use my THQ credit on. ;)

then click [Enter your code] and it will show what you have. At least, that's the only one i know of.


Thanks but that's not what I had in mind. There was another place where it showed all available credits on account...
Don't even know what code I would enter here

There is two bundles, one mixed DRM and one all Steam. Sounds like you got the mixed version.

That was true when it was released, the unplayability thing, the port is indeed crap, but nowadays there are fixes for 90% of the problems, there is plenty of info in both steam forums and the rest of the interwebs.

To those on the fence for this one, the first thing to do is get the gentleman of the row mod.

So after looking over the publisher's lists it turns out I own everything!

I don't know whether to be proud or disappointed..

I've received a THQ coupon and I've been trying to buy SRTT Full Package but at checkout there's no credit automatically applied. It's still 7.49. Any ideas?

Really glad I didn't get Mirrors Edge for $5 on Steam because now I can get it plus like 5 other games for $2... sweet.



Nope, see above. It's one code per publisher.

Oh I see. Thanks for the answer. If I want another THQ code to use it on Darksiders II do I need to buy another THQ game? If so, which one do you recommend buying? 8-)

If that is indeed the case (and you haven't already downloaded/redeemed either one) just contact CS for a refund.

I'm confused...if it's only one promotional credit per publisher per account then why are they sending out multiple credits? I got 6 from EA and 2 from THQ already, and I'm supposed to get 7 from 2K and another THQ one. Why not just send out a single promo credit for each publisher and that's it? Don't get me wrong, I like this promotion and I'm definitely going to buy games with the credits I get. I just don't get the point in sending out multiple publisher credits if you can only use one.

I thought the pack was just cheaper actually but I was thinking with the 1 code.
Still a good deal. Never played Bulletstorm either and I could play Burnout Paradise again.

I'm fairly set on Revelations (Ubi) and SR2 (THQ), not sure what to do about 2K and I'm a little bit peeved that Syndicate's (EA) sale was cut short early.



I thought Syndicate was listed as being on sale until the 23rd.

No there is a pack with Mirrors Edge and 4 other games listed by Tony.



Ah, I see, you meant the equivalent of $2 each, not $2 for the whole thing. Gotcha.

Tony, what's gonna happen on the 28th with the Civilization series?

Probably because it's an automated process and just triggering based on your purchases. I could be wrong about the one per pub thing but I'm just going off that post by Tony earlier... er... late last night.

Yeah the whole thing is pretty messy.

I wish I could see all my credits on the Amazon site somewhere.

Plus I have all those F2P credits spamming up my mailbox.

Good deals just minor gripes.

I'll admit, I don't always keep up on date adjustments. But I had it copy/pasted to a desktop sticky note as I was considering it, but figured I'd have time to mull it over in January.

Be careful though since none of these publisher credits or Editor's choice credits are showing up. I just purchased something when I had 0.00 and instead of the THQ or Editor's choice credits show up, my credits show 19.94 from a 9.99 and 9.94 promo for 2 free to play games.

Ugh god damn it. I used that to check and it said I had "$112.40" for MP3's and AIV.

So I tried to rent a movie for 3.99$ to see if the credit would apply. But it didn't and I got charged 4$ instead!

Turns out the credit button is at the bottom for some damn reason. I clicked the 1 click buy button. D'oh


D'OH!

I got the $5 off email from EA. The three games I'm interested in are:

Battlefield 3
Mass Effect 2
Burnout Paradise (I hear the servers are down and you don't get all the content).

Thing about ME2 is, PC DLC never goes on sale. It'll be $10 for Lair of the Shadow Broker alone.

Any suggestions?

Also, I sure hope Binary Domain goes on sale. I'm having remorse for not getting it at the Steam Flash sale :(

Binary Domain was great, did you played Mass effect 1? if not then do you like FPS or racing games?
