lower the price of XCOM some more please!


Given the way 2K has been sale-happy this year, I fully expect to see XCOM for $20 or less in somebody's year-end sale.

Only a matter of time before he splits his soul into seven pieces and stores each piece into a different game.


Yeah, but then next MAYhem would feature a "Tony's Horcrux Bundle" where all 7 games are $9.99. If he wants to keep the pieces of his soul separate, he can't hide them in games.

Completionists who want to OWN the entire JC series will be happy.

Gotta collect them all =D

I also don't have a whole lot of faith in the Windows Marketplace being particularly successful or useful, especially for end users like you or me. I just don't think it's going to be all that offensive, either.


Just to note that Apple gets away with it by delivering tightly focused products that pretty much fulfill their promise for their target audience. Microsoft has been making good strides in this regard, but I think they just don't have enough (corporate-organizational) focus to pull it off.

Is the Desura client mandatory?

Man, I really want the Batman Bundle... but after reading some of the reviews on Amazon, I'm hesitant - I have no desire to spend half an hour trying to figure out how to install around a shitton of DRM roadblocks. :cry:

That's why I didn't buy it. Also, while Amazon does give infinite keys for personal use, it's gotta be a pain to get your game revoked from Steam if you run out of activations.. Steam isn't known for having great customer support.

WHAAAT! :-s did NOT know about the activation limits and I bought a Batman: AA key from a CAGer on the trade forum. ( who only needed Batman: AC) :wall:

I thought the whole point of Steam was so that I won't have to deal the BS like this (seeing that Steam is DRM)

EDIT: Found some info about the Securom from link

I feel better now, scared me a bit.

Wow even beat the Game of Thrones price, the bundle on Steam is still the best deal for both the GOT games if anyone is interested.

Did some research on Google an apparently Wargame comes with a variant of Starforce DRM and 5 machine activation limit. Can anybody confirm this? is that s the case then i won't be purchasing the game. It's a shame cause it looks really good.

If you know amazon gives replacement keys are you holding back because of principle? Amazon is the only place I'll look for the Batman games because of their drm and amazon's key policy puts the activation limit to rest.

The problem is with Steam it's a pain in the ass to get them to remove a game from your account. So every time you get a new key from amazon you would have to ask Steam to remove the game from your account, wait the two weeks it takes for them to respond to CS and hope they do it.

The only time I emailed them was at the beginning of the winter sale years ago. They didn't get back to me until the winter sale was over. It was a winter sale game question.

So can someone with the Batman bundle tell me if you can play whilst offline? What if I go out of town, where there is no interwebs? For about $4 each, I can stomach a one-time activation and three-fold DRM, but only if I don't have to be online just to play.

Ah mine had to so with the invalid dead island keys people were getting from newegg. I had one activated on my account and another activated on a friends account. I was actually shocked at how easy it was. I'd imagine during a huge sale it could get like that.

I don't understand what the problem is.

You shouldn't need to download the game from Amazon, you have a Steam key and can download from Steam. Regardless, you should still be able to go to your account settings and look at your downloaded games/software and find everything you're looking for, anyway.

I'm kind of perplexed as to what you're asking.

The completionist in me only needs these COD games -- COD: Black Ops and World At War.

There are a couple threads in the W:EE forum indicating that the DRM was removed a couple months ago. Linky

Companies change their policies the way my wife changes clothes. I love Amazon for having this policy; but I wonder how it works on the back end. Does Amazon browbeat the publisher into making good on activation-depleted licenses for free? Or does Amazon pay the publisher for another license, and write that cost off as "customer service"?

If the key-replacement policy entails a quantifiable cost to Amazon, there will always be a danger of the policy being canceled at some future point. It's a perq, not a contractual obligation, and could cease to exist at any time.

That's a great point. I've wondered how they do this, keys don't just magically pop out of the sky.

On Steam the Game of Thrones bundle is $17.49 which contains both A Game of Thrones - Genesis, Game of Thrones while on Amazon Game of Thrones alone cost $17.49 I guess I'll wait for a better deal from Amazon on this.
