Bought mafia and used a 2k coupon.

Do we get another coupon if we use the coupon on a purchase?


Another 2K credit...no. Prior purchases only and only 1 credit per pub.

January EC $5 credit...again, I believe the answer Tony gave was no.

$14.99 in the Editor's choice list.

Cheers,

Ah, I just looked through that but I must have missed it. Thanks.

Already grabbed it for $11.99 here, but that's an awesome price on the game. Much better than people made it out to be. It's not perfect and it has a good bit of flaws, but it feels like what Fable could have been if they didn't oversimplify the series.

(Also, I've gotten $5 January coupons while buying these $5 off publisher games. I have to many though, so it doesn't matter much.)

I finally bit on Scribblenauts, but am going to pass on Lego LOTR. I'll get that another time, i need to play other Lego games in my backlog first.

Interesting, as I have not. I'm not complaining as I already have more than I can use.

Edit: Scratch that...I did for EA and THQ (purchased early 12/25), but did not for Ubi and 2K (purchased late 12/25-26).

Aw...so confused. I didn't get one with my THQ promo (Darksiders franchise). Tony said we probably wouldn't, so that's cool. I should have bought it earlier though because I only have 3, and I plan to use more than that. What else to buy to get them...hm...

How is Lego LOTR? Thinking of buying it to play through with my significant other, but I've never been introduced to LOTR or the Lego video game series. The consensus here seems to be that it's pretty good, but is it for someone who has no opinion on either of the series?

Yeah, that's what I thought but look at the original question. It was referring to people saying they purchased KoA, not planning to.

Oh well, thanks for confirming that Amazon didn't go forward early.

Tony, here's my feedback...

Amazon: 6 purchases
LEGO LotR
LEGO Harry Batman Pack
LEGO Batman
The WTF Pack
Bioshock Dual Pack
Darksiders II Franchise Pack

My only regret was no Mafia I / Mafia II deal.

Didn't get the $5 promotional credit email towards EC for two of my latest orders. But I'm gonna wait, maybe it will take some time to kick in.

By the way, games on Steam I purchased so far: 0

Shoulda grabbed when it was $15 bro! Even if it hits $15 in the EC list, it doesn't come with the new issue and extras. ;)

(Still, $10 for the game would be pretty awesome.)


So 2K patches the rosters themselves? What's the difference between that and user made roster patches?

is the secret world some kind of turn based mmo where you just click the enemy and you watch your guy/girl do all the work(like WoW) or is it active like guild wars 2?

Same. I did the math and so far this winter I have bought 47 games and 11 DLC. I have played 3 games and 0 DLC of that. My Steam list, more than half of the games have not been played at all yet, some going back 2 winter sales ago. Just so many good deals! Don't want to miss out

It's active.

And there are guns, so it's immediately better than other games.

I haven't played it much, but what I've played so far I've really liked.

It doesn't seem to be P2W (pay to win) where you're pretty useless unless you pay for better weapons, premium features, etc. It does have an in game store, but the things to buy there are very cosmetic. I just was reading something on the TSW forum awhile ago where someone suggested that paid for NPC mercenaries be added (a feature of GW2, apparently), and someone vehemently said "No! Keep the store cosmetic only!", so I see time and again that the store really is cosmetic.

All in the all, gameplay is clean and interesting. You can equip two weapon types at once, so for example, one of my characters has a shotgun and a magical sort of disc on my back that allows me to get up close and personal to use physical hand to hand magic attacks, and my other character has an assault rifle and dual pistols. The basics of combat generally consist of hitting your enemies with repeatedly with your small, simple attacks, building up "resources" (basically hit counters that build), and then unleashing an attacks that eats up those resources and does extra damage.

It's simple, but it keeps the game from becoming yet another button masher, and there is a lot of variation past that I'm sure. I really haven't played enough to unlock higher tiered attacks.

I bought it for the atmosphere, but like I said, the combat is pretty damn fun. You also can switch your movement/aiming to TPS style while you're in combat, which really helps when you're getting swarmed by zombies and whatnot, lol.

We really need to get a CAG TSW group going, too. ;)

How single player friendly is The Secret World?

Very, from what I've played. It's a common complaint that it would be nice for the game to have an offline mode; that's how single player friendly it is.

(Although I'm sure boss battles later on probably get significantly harder.)

Tony said it will be added. :)

BTW guys, I know a lot of you are curious about what's going to be added to the Editor's Choice list and how it is going to be promoted.

As many of you have noted, we're running a lot of deals right now...which means things are insane over here. Additionally many of our publishing partners are out for the holidays. There will be more stuff added, example, the Amalur Bundle will be added at $14.99, so coupon holders can get it for $10, we'll also be adding Warfighter at $26.99 so coupon holders will get it for $21.99.

Just an FYI :).

Cheers,
Tony

They all typically start when the game is registered, not when it is purchased, with this exception: if you buy it directly from the publisher/developer, sometimes they register it automatically.

CAGS,

I think 2K has put together a phenomenal set of promotions for us all. I'd like to start doing the "tell us what you bought" thing in this thread if you all are cool with it.

With that, I'd love to hear what 2K games you snagged and are psyched about so far this holiday!

Cheers,
Tony


Well, I already owned all of the 2k Games. I've had Bioshock 1 and 2 forever. Same with Darkness II, Civilization, Spec Ops, Borderlands etc...

So, with my $5 coupon I bought the only 2k game I was missing -- NBA 2k12. I'm not really into the NBA but I always loved the NBA 2k games. I just haven't bought one since 2k8 (?) the last year of College Hoops 2k. That way I could import draft classes and stuff.

So, I am pumped to play 2k12. The NBA 2k games have always been known for their sterling graphics and that was 5-6 years ago. I cannot wait to see it in 1900x1200, Dx11 with everything jacked to the moon.

Tony,

Any news on a War of the Roses deal for the new year that will work with the $5 coupon? I just about snagged it for the $15 recently but I am holding out hope it will be $15 and the coupon will make it $10. :D

Amazon, once again, gets most of my gaming dollars this year. My only gripe with amazon (and it is a small one) is how many e-mails you guys send me about coupons I have. I buy so much, I get 70-80 e-mails about promo codes I qualify for. Maybe something for the suggestion box would be a single alert that takes you to a page on your 'my account' that shows all of the promos you have/qualify for?

Thanks!

I was in the process of grabbing some Warlock DLC and came across this odd pricing:

Warlock Master of the Arcane: Power of the Serpent List Price $19.99 $10.00

It's just DLC... the base game is half that price. It's on sale at Steam for $1.49. Clearly a pricing error.

Tony?

I'm grabbing NBA 2K12 with my 2K credit. Would love to get 2K13 for $10 within the next month, but there's no guarantee it will be on sale for $15 while on the Editor's Choice list, so I'll go with the old version. Thanks Tony!
