Does Amazon still carry Mafia 1? I can't find it in a search.

Tony, I might as well ask to make sure:

Viva Big Bundle of Games - $9.99

This was down to (at least) $8.99 previously in the year, at least for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Still holding out on it to see if it makes one last stab at the $8.99 territory.

I know it's just a buck... but it is CAG, after all...

FWIW - I plan to snag everything in this list later (also to get a ton of EC coupons):


Black Mirror II $1.99
Black Mirror III $1.99
Gray Matter $4.99
Alter Ego $1.99
Mystery Adventure Bundle (the above 4 games) $9.99
The Whispered World $1.99
Dark Fall: The Journal $1.99
Dark Fall: Lights Out $1.99
Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder $2.50
Mata Hari $1.99
Cursed Mountain $4.99
Sinking Island $1.99
Nibiru: Age of Secrets $1.99
Aura $1.99
Aura 2: The Sacred Rings $1.99
The Whispered World $1.99
Sentinel: Descendants in Time $1.99
Postmortem $1.99
Syberia II $1.99


The reason it's relevant is that two of those games are in the Viva Big Bundle of Games pack.

Buying TSW today for $22.50 vs. tomorrow for $13 + $5.. Is the starter pack stuff worth $4.50? My hunch is that better noob weapons prolly is worth $4.50 until you can twink your new characters.

Having played the game, upgrading your early weapons and staying competitive with the zombies and beach monsters was pretty trivial anyway. Getting it now under the 2012 wire might be worth it for the upcoming DLC but I wouldn't call twinkie newbie weapons a reason to do it.

Without playing the game, but reading around I was arriving at this conclusion.

Having played the game quite a bit lately,

You don't NEED anything in TSW... you'll eventually earn it. Some of the good stuff is all cosmetic. Issue 5 is a later quest so you won't be missing it early on (especially if you haven't played)

It's been know to get games rotated through the month of January. Plus the prices shown are not necessarily final (likely will be sales/price matching going on).

Ah, thanks mate. Don't know why I couldn't find it. It's either because the amazon search kinda sucks, or because I'm an idiot. Or possibly both.

Mafia 1 has been removed from the steam store, so it's possible that Amazon only has a certain amount of keys left for that game. Any chance you might be able to clarify that situation Tony?

I don't know how I found it a few days ago on Amazon as I was looking to possibly pick it up, because I couldn't repeat the search just now. Google, however, found it right away. Go figure.

Sorry, from my understanding that seems pretty vague. I have no idea what that means to us consumers.

And I really miss a Mafia / Mafia II pack/sale :bouncy:


i think it may be vaguely implying that not all international sites are legitimate

Thanks for the replies. After browsing through the horribly overpriced TSW Item Shop I'm going to have to rethink getting TSW.

First off, thanks to all of the hard work you have done letting us know about all of the great deals. It's really appreciated! I played solely MMORPG's from the Everquest Beta till about 2008 when I quit WoW and really haven't been playing much of anything the past few years. The last console I owned was the original Nintendo. Basically, I came in to this holiday season with a clean slate on video games as basically everything on every system is new to me, and a ton of cash to blow. I didn't want to buy anything new because the old stuff is all new to me, and much less cost. I wanted to get a PS3 since I didn't own a blu-ray player. I also wanted to build a new computer as mine is fairly outdated. With that said, I've been bargain shopping at all of the various retailers for the best deals around for the past 2 months and this board has been a great help. The reason for the post however, is the interesting part of the break-down of my spending.

For digital games my breakdown was about:

75% Amazon
15% Steam
10% Gamersgate

For PS3 Purchases my breakdown was about:

70% Best Buy (Console + Bundles)
15% Amazon (Accessories)
15% Gamestop (used games)

For Computer purchases my breakdown was about:

80% Newegg
20% Amazon

Total spent: About $2,500.

By merchant:

Newegg: $1,200
Amazon: $700
Best Buy: $600

Essentially, Amazon took the majority of sales in the Digital Games category. Newegg took the majority of sales in the Computer hardware category and Best Buy took almost all of the sales in the PS3 category with Amazon the only merchant to cut into all 3 areas winning the Digital Downloads, and getting occasional sales in PS3 (Accessories, 1 bundle) and Computer Parts (Ram, Motherboard).

In Summary,

Amazon was the best for Digital Downloads.
Best Buy was the best for PS3 purchases.
Newegg was the best for computer hardware.

Your choice, naturally, but the item shop is really just cosmetic stuff. I've never felt a need to use it.
