I'm confused. Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition is supposed to be $18 starting tomorrow, right? But it's $15 right now.



I fail to see the confusion... :whee:

The answer lies in your perceived Return of Investment. What is better value for you??

I wouldn't advise to get the SR3 complete collection as a single key. SR3's dlc is truly horrible with some of it being basically paid for cheats, one is even for unlocking the entire city. Research very well about it's DLC before taking a decision.

And unfortunately, I can't guarantee SR2 will work for you, yes there are dozens of fixes to bring it up to speed but the thing remains a poorly done port and nothing can change that fact.

Up to you.


The SRTT Full Package doesn't include either the Unlockable pack or Bloodsucker pack. Its DLC is basically clothes, vehicles, weapons, and extra missions you can choose to use or not use. and for the cheats it does include, you have to activate them manually in-game.

Now the Bloodsucker pack..that gets alot of hate because it forces you to have the vampire bite health regen skill, replacing the necksnap whenever you had a human shield which some people prefer. It also automatically give you boosts for money and respect [exp]

The Unlockable pack (from what I read) forces you to pick a section of a city to unlock at the start of the game (pick one of the small island for minimum impact) and lets you have access to both mission bonuses offered whenever you normally have to choose one or the other.

Bought Scribblenauts, can't believe Amazon was able to slash the price that much more than Steam was. Props to Tony and to Amazon for these deals - knocking them out of the ballpark!

The other poster was implying: why be confused, just buy it for the $15 if you were waiting for the $18.

I gotta admit amazon has done a pretty good amount of deals so far. way better than steam. Its too bad EA and UBI do not offer Steam versions of their games.

Unless you are planning to use the $5 coupon on it, in which case it will be slightly cheaper on January 1.

There's not really any good deals on those though. And if there were good deals, they'd be under $10 so you couldn't use the discount anyway.

Codes aren't valid today anyway, so patience...patience. =P

Oh I can make personal insults too!

Listed sale price is HIGHER than what it is now. That's not strange to you? Sorry, but that sounds like a dick move to me, but if you like those kinds of moves, then by all means, eat away.

If you didn't like it, why consider buying it...? I put in over 300 hours into each game of the series, at least and am still play, but that's just me. BF3 is great, I have over 1000 hours into that on 360, but won't get it on PC as my online friends are 360 only. Single player was OK, but I wouldn't get it for ONLY that.


My reasoning is maybe I just didn't get in enough hours to get to the good stuff?

Do you prefer Mass Effect or Battlefield 3? Or are they entirely different kinds of games?

Got 1 Ubisoft, 3x THQ and 3x EA promo credit today but I bought way more EA games in 2012. Shouldn't it be for "ALL" the purchases in 2012 or a specific period ?

Anyway I was hoping to get Need For Speed Most Wanted Ultimate Speed Pack DLC for $5 with the credit but the DLC is not in the EA Holiday Present list. Can you fix that Tony ?

WAAAAAY different games. Like comparing baseball to organizing your sock drawer different. Action/shooter RPG dealing with squad (micro)management vs a heavily multiplayer influenced FPS.

While I don't love the fact that the price is going up just as the coupon becomes active *grumblegrumble* I would just like the point out that the entire concept of Steam's big semi-annual sales revolve around games going on sale for a short duration at a higher discount and then after that going to lower discounted amount. (ie Flash sale 75% off for the next 12 hours! Oh you missed the flash sale? Now it's 50% off)

Steam does it way more than Amazon does. At least Tony lets you know what will be on sale when and for how long in advance. On Steam you don't get that and just have to keep an eye out for when the game you want hits a steeper discount.

Ah well, if the full package won't include those, I see no problem with it.

If I was going to get my first Assassin Creed game, which would be better to get?
Revelations or Brotherhood? (I'll have a coupon to use and at 2.50 I'm pretty tempted even if it isn't steam)



Skip AC1. Play in order AC2, ACB, then ACR. They cover the story arc of Ezio. More importantly, gameplay wise AC2 > ACB > ACR. If you don't like AC2 you can safely skip the rest.

On a side note, anyone who only needs the earlier 2 Dungeon Siege games on Steam (previously only available in the Steam bundle with Dungeon Siege 3),

Spoiler



Two notes. (1) The Dungeon Siege 1, 2, 3 pack on steam had been on sale for $7.50 iirc. (2) Dungeon Siege 1 & 2 have expansions that are not on steam (or download).

Spoiler
And, Tony said he was looking into maybe crediting people in a certain window (I remember he said he thought a month was fair) Well, what about when it happens in the same week?!? I mean seriously. I've learned to wait until the last day to buy something at Amazon, but to throw it back up on sale after the deal expired, inside of the same week it was on sale, and give a credit to be used against it also, combined with absolutely no warning or hint that this might happen.
Spoiler



I remember Tony noting earlier this Fall that they try to avoid price drops within a month. The Hitman credit to recent buyers was great. I agree with walkonshadows.

I'm not going to say your complaint isn't valid; I'm having the same problem and it's definitely worth addressing. I just hate it when people bring up how much they buy from amazon or follow Tony's thread when complaining.

You do that because Tony's doing an awesome job here, which makes you spending time in this thread worth it. Considering how easy it is to be a repeat customer, buying a lot of really great deals doesn't make your complaints any more important than anyone else's.



It's a very valid point. You want to make sure your regular customers are happy. Complaining about someone else complaining seems like a waste of thread space in a self-referential way.

It seems a public forum is not the best place to make your petition. Did you consider a PM to Tony prior to complaining here or even a call to Amazons customer service? This thread is about announcing upcoming deals and providing feedback for future deals. Do we really need to state that a game should not go on sale cheaper for an arbitrary amount of time after a sale to make sure we don't hurt peoples feelings?



New here, huh? There's the little trend that airing your complaints in public gets results.

Eh, people have mentioned that before in the thread and Tony has addressed it. Don't see why it's a problem. The Hitman sale being a recent example.



This.

:applause:

Thank you. I was worried my wit (read: sarcasm) would fall on deaf ears (well, eyes rather).



You shouldn't have been worried, but I guesss it was justified. Prices on Amazon move like a kid on a pogo stick. Visit CamelCamelCamel (Amazon price tracker) to see for yourself.
