Quick question

Wife got me Dark Souls PS3 for Christmas... any reason to purchase it on PC during this sale? Kinda curious if modding and such make it worth the $15 investment.


PC version looks way way better when using the DSFix mod, it runs much smoother (the console versions have horrible framerates) and the DLC that comes free with the PC version cost like $15 on the consoles.

Probably. I got mine an hour ago and that was from a DNF purchase last January.


I searched my orders to check which purchase gave me the 2K credit. Turned out to be DNF bought Jan 2nd, 2012
for $0.99 after the $5 2011 credit. Awesome way to link Amazon Holiday sales of 2011-2012/2012-2013 and a real good
long term investment :lol: :applause:

You know I bought the Darksiders Franchise pack as well and it never even occured to me that I could have save 5 buck by waiting, mainly becuase I though the sale was up in a day or so. However I am not disappointed, disgruntled or angry in the least. I got a recent game and all dlc for under 14.00 along with a spare copy of the first game. Im cheap as they come but stuff happens, I thought it was an amazing deal when I bought it. It still is, now that I have thought it through would I have rather paid less, of course I am a CAG. However we have been the recipients of a amazing set of deals today and throughout this year from Amazon and Tony and I for one wish to keep it coming.

So to Tony keep up the great work!

P.S. (if you wanted to give me 5 dollars off retroactively thats ok too : D )

SONOFA.

Typo on the landing page. Fixing now. As stated in the email, the credit is good on stuff $9.99 and above, 1 per customer per publisher.

Noooo. Haha oh well. I haven't gotten my email yet so I didn't see.

Tony, this page still mentions the $5 minimum for 2K, and it also includes the $7 XCOM Slingshot DLC in the query.

Please keep complaining and claiming that Tony is lying so that we can have less candid conversations and less insight into the process in the future. The thread as a whole had mostly moved past it until you dragged it back out and gave this long-winded whinefest.

I hope after the holiday stress winds down Tony that you don't decide being less transparent with us is the better choice, because many of us really appreciate the insight into deals and promotions that may happen. Of course, with how the thread has blown up and become hostile over the past few days, I totally understand if you do.

I'm pretty sure the US PS3 version is just the base game. We never got the re-released PS3 "Prepare to Die" version w/DLC like Europe. If you did get the base game and want the DLC, then it'll cost you $15 on PSN.

I'm aggravated a bit b/c the deal JUST happened 5 days or so ago...
but now not so aggravated about this now, since it's only ONE coupon per publisher.
And I finally got all the SR:TT DLC that I was missing by buying SR:TT Full Package.

So, I think I've kinda moved on a bit on this one... {shrugs}

Only thing - I'm wanting that 2K coupon to show up before I go to work tomorrow!

And yet you're continuing to throw walkonshadows under the bus, and prolonging the issue even further... Okay.

Everyone dissed the guy. He has a right to defend himself, and to be honest, yes, this entire "We didn't have sales because people complained" is pretty fishy. Relax.

Does anyone know what level the missions start at for the Borderlands 2 Pirate's Booty DLC?

50% off the DLC sounds pretty fair considering how new it is, and since I got the Torgue DLC for free...


IIRC it's level 15. I beat it and enjoyed it. I'm not digging the arena nature of Mr. Torgue, though.

Honestly I wish the thread would move on from the conversation. My intent was not to stir up arguments but to be open about responding to a valid request with something other than an opaque "no". If the answer was "no because we'd lose to much money and it doesn't make sense" I'd say so...similar to the information about international price matching in the OP...the question was asked for weeks "why don't you PM internationally?" and when I responded with "because the business models/arrangements in different countries are too varied to maintain and monitor" it seemed to be understood and accepted by the community.

I'll PM Walkonshadows shortly to apologize for any flak he's caught. I will say that I'm not mad or anything, just pretty shocked and a little hurt that this is the conversation I'm having with this community at 5:30 on Christmas Day...from an airplane.

You'd need a 360 controller to play it as it's unplayable with keyboard+mouse. Other than that, there are mods to make it high res but other than that it's a no-frills port.


Have a controller. My sons love to play on the pc, when my 6 year old is not sneaking onto the xbox playing Halo and getting me in trouble with the wife.

I tried blame it on Tony and the crazy Disney sale he had a few months ago, but for some reason my wife does buy that having anything to do with the Halo thing.

Lego games on the pc being a gateway to fps shooters like Halo.

Sorry i wasnt clear in my post.
I wanted to suggest to our favourite amazon employee Tony to match the digital download price of settlers 7 to the DVD copy one, around 6 bucks, its a great game from what i've heard :lol:

1. I repeatedly stated that I had no issue with the $5 credit's, but rather the fact that the Darksider's Franchise Pack, which I bought on the supposed "last day" of the sale, was re-listed just a day later so that the coupon code (which we weren't given any notice about) could be used against. To repeat: If the Darksiders Franchise Pack had not been extended to allow the coupon to be used against it, I would have had nothing to complain about. I would have simply seen there was nothing else I was interested in applying the coupon to, and went on my merry way.

You DID NOT buy it on the "last day", because it had ALREADY BEEN ANNOUNCED for Christmas day, hence my decision to NOT buy it on what you refer to as "the last day," but rather to wait until the REAL last day to decide. Your whole basis for whining and complaining is null and void, so hopefully you'll just drop the matter.

People just hate realizing that they aren't as good shoppers as they thought they were, that's all. We all think we'r'e great and get blindsided by better deals occasionally, this being one of those times. Then once the reverse happened and the normal expectation didn't hit, people just reacted similarly for the opposite reason: they thought they'd save money here. even bearing in mind that most people asking for Syndicate wouldn't play it in full due to backlogs, even ignoring that they all have to have a $5 code for Jan, they just got blindsided by the offer they expected not reaching. regardless of day, people are cheap and argumentative.

but think of it as some sort of balance of luck! fate gave you a choice: a bunch of angry people on CAG or snakes on a plane, and you got the former.
don't make fate take it back! she'll do it!


on a different note, and perhaps a better one, Rayman Origins almost done downloading, another hour or so left. net's not the fastest today, so i'll know later if there's drm on this (as expected) or not (unintentional christmas gift?).

Tony, you're a good man and have set a new bar for going above and beyond for all the work you're putting in, especially today.

I'm running into an issue where I'm trying to buy the Tantalizing THQ pack, but the $5 coupon isn't applying. I'm fine with buying it and getting everything straightened out later/in the next couple days as long as I'm not missing something and it shouldn't be applying in the first place. I've received THQ emails for purchasing the DS franchise last week, Spec Ops and Space Marine.

It is a dangerous and scary existence in the lands of these interwebs. But honestly, I've not cared to get involved in this conversation because it's petty and stupid. That goes for the vast majority of us. Your not having this convo with the community, we'd best like to leave you to your Christmas in peace. Your having this convo with a few individuals who really don't deserve the attention your giving their issues.

/shrug, I've loved the deals and the work you've put into maintaining information here. I got the WTF bundle, scribblenauts for my girlfriend, blacklight for a buck because why the hell not, and Dead Island GOTY because $6 is incredible for such an amazing game. Gifted a couple great bundles to friends as well. I'll pick up 2k Strat pack for myself tomorrow with my 2k $5 coupon. Probably wouldn't have noticed them without this thread and the updates on the OP. So big thanks from me, and I'm sure many others who really, sincerely appreciate your support of the folks here.

I think situations like the people that bought Hitman Absolution for $30 from Amazon before the $20 promotion and got a $10 credit speak for themselves. There was no obligation to do so, but it happened. It shows respect and it makes you feel like a valued customer.

The thing with sales prices is that it's kind of annoying getting one thing for one price just to see it with a lower price the next day or few days.

I think it's because Tony already tell us the prices before even the actual sales take place. So in a way, I think we are kinda spoiled :bouncy: I don't remember seeing that with other DD stores. Last minute promotions, like with the $5 publisher coupons, that seems unpredicted.

Last Steam summer sale I got SRTT pack for $25 in a flash deal (or a daily deal). I know I got it after I saw the same price twice, so I thought I shouldn't let is pass. And just to see in the last day of the Steam sales the same pack was being sold for something like $13. Yeah I got a bit upset, but, what gives. Sales prices sometimes are crazy.

And now people bought SRTT for $2.50 on Amazon with the $5 THQ coupon. I could not predict that! Good thing I bought the game and had time to play it, and most important, enjoyed playing. Otherwise if I got stuck comparing price drops I would only annoy myself furthermore. Price drops are the natural order of the market. Comparing price drops will only bring annoyance.

That's my feedback.

You know I bought the Darksiders Franchise pack as well and it never even occured to me that I could have save 5 buck by waiting, mainly becuase I though the sale was up in a day or so. However I am not disappointed, disgruntled or angry in the least. I got a recent game and all dlc for under 14.00 along with a spare copy of the first game. Im cheap as they come but stuff happens, I thought it was an amazing deal when I bought it. It still is, now that I have thought it through would I have rather paid less, of course I am a CAG. However we have been the recipients of a amazing set of deals today and throughout this year from Amazon and Tony and I for one wish to keep it coming.

So to Tony keep up the great work!

P.S. (if you wanted to give me 5 dollars off retroactively thats ok too : D )


You pretty much summarized what I took many lines trying to say.

Isn't Rayman DRM-Free? I seem to remember that.

Worse comes to worse, it'd be Steam. I know the Steam version of Rayman doesn't have any other DRM except for Steam.

Also: Tony, you do great work, and please stick around forever. You're kicking ass this Christmas for us (well, for Amazon, too :P), and I'm proud to say that Amazon's getting a -lot- of my spending dollars this year. Keep it up.
