This review is from: Season of Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders [Download] (Software Download)
I paid for this, began what I thought would be a straightforward download, and got a message that I had to install a program called Steam in order to complete the download. This required a whole new registration at an unfamiliar website, which gave instructions to click on one of two (depending on which "support" menu you read) links to "activate a new program." NEITHER LINK APPEARS ANYWHERE ON THE SCREEN OR ON ANY OF THE DROPDOWN MENUS!
So I link to the Steam support function, and come to find that "Support" is an entirely separate website that you have to register for all over again! Outrageous BS! You're left having paid for the game and with no way of downloading it. Thanks Amazon or Steam or whoever it is who is ripping me off. Well that was a totally bogus waste of time and money!

Tony -

I'm loving Amazon's sales so far. With the exception of one dirt cheap piece of DLC, every game I've bought during the Black Friday and Christmas sales has come from Amazon, and I expect that will probably continue as all the Editor's Choice coupons I've accumulated become active. Great work! :)

Do you (or anyone else) know if the $2.50ish deal you had on Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes a couple weeks ago is likely to be coming back any time soon? I meant to buy it but forgot, and by the time I checked again it had gone back up.

That's a tough one - b/c both are awesome.

If you want a short (like 7-hours or so), but great SP campaign b/c of its story, choices, and character development -- go w/ Spec Ops: The Line.
Gameplay-wise, it's a good 3rd-person cover-style shooter - but it's the other stuff (that I mentioned above) that stands out majorly; especially when you compare it to other military shooters.

If you want a game w/ awesome shooting mechanics, the cool-as-can be quad-weildling, twisted story, cool cel-shaded graphics and lots of gore/violence -- take Darkness 2. This IS how I think FEAR 3 should've turned out, if you ask me.

EDIT:
BTW, double face-palm is aimed at those pathetic reviews, BTW.
I can understand people not liking Steam (b/c it's DRM), but Steam's VERY functional and has A LOT of benefits - for both those who know what they're doing and even those who don't.
If people want to knock DRM, they need to knock the "always online" bullcrap some other games have (MMO's; Diablo 3; what UbiSoft once did w/ AC2 and SC: Conviction before the complaints caused them to lighten up).

Even when I hated Steam (i.e. back when it first came out, before it got much improved), I still thought back then HL2 was fantastic game.

both are great
great stories
about the same length (spec ops may be a little longer-don't remember for sure)
I would say spec ops has a better story and darkness 2 has better gameplay
(but that doesn't take into account the tps versus fps factor - personally i like tps better so to me they were about equal on gameplay)
and spec ops has a better story

its a personal preference thing
i liked spec ops better

Tony, just out of curiosity, is there some reason the 2K Shooter Pack has DNF in the picture instead of Borderlands GOTY? I'd imagine that you'd get a bit more interest if Borderlands were displayed prominently.

I'm pretty happy about it. :applause: The more people happy, the better, right?

Edit: Also, why be disappointed? The last time it was on sale, editor's choice hadn't even been mentioned. Why be disappointed when a deal is made accessible to more people? The price of the bundle isn't even known yet, so it could be worse anyway.

I didn't even realize that it had Borderlands GOTY and avoided even clicking on it when it shows The Duke. A little late now but it really does need changed since featuring Duke Nukem front and center honestly does turn a lot of people off if they already own Bioshock 1/2.

I've talked with several people who did not even know Borderlands was included because it isn't in the picture.

Apologies if this is old news, but someone was asking Tony about it:

Amazon has now PMed Sonic Adventure 2 Battlemode DLC to Steam's price of $1.49.


Now I just wish Amazon would PM Legendary: Steam's sale price is $1.24, it's still $1.99 on Amazon.
