just noticed mp3 steam version comes with 4 dlc, at least on mine
classic max
disorganized crime
pill bottle
special ed pack

Just checked and it lists them as me having them too. Don't plan on playing MP but it's nice to have gotten them with the game anyway.

Same.

Holiday sales always make me hate the fact that I have an Internet download cap and have to share it with 3 other people. Ha. About to kiss at least 15 GB goodbye.

The time period for receiving EC promo credits is over. The time to spend them has just started.


Just imagine if they still dished them out... self-replicating coupons. :lol:

It's NOT like WoW.

I told people over on the Steam thread, and I'll say it here.

Do NOT review the game until you have done 2 things:
1) Kingsmouth Code - You get this quest from the Priest in Solomon's Island, just past the Sherriffs station.
2) Do Polaris (first instance) - Recommended at QL2-3.

Do those. If those don't make you go WHOA, then the game will be a bust. But I'd be willing to bet it'd satisfy the urge for most people.

(mind you, using a walkthrough on the Kingsmouth code will defeat the purpose and leave you wanting)



Thanks for the heads-up! I'm just beginning to do quests in Kingsmouth and am totally loving the amazing variety of quests. I haven't really played an MMO since I first played Guild Wars around launch, so TSW is, to me, a real breath of fresh air.

  • The real world merged with secret societies, occult, and all other types of cool magiclike things is really neat.
  • Combat so far is a lot of fun and feels snappy and responsive. Even with two starting skills I feel like I'm really making an impact and kicking ass right away. I'm tired of feeling like a baby lamb when I start some RPGs.
  • Quest structure is terrific. I haven't played an MMO in ages but I am truly enjoying the variety and multi-tiered nature of the quests. In other words, you're not just filling a quota or fetching something all the time. I feel like they add to the story and give you a sense of being a part of the world.
  • I haven't joined a group yet, but so far I really like how TSW handles solo play. In a way it's as if they considered casual, single players like me first rather than design around group play. Having said that, I do look forward to playing with you guys and gals online because these powers and skills are just too fun not to use them in a group :)

Tony, thanks for the awesome deal on this game. I think the combination of the price and subscription fee drop was the perfect storm this holiday season.
TSW CAGS, thanks so much for championing this game these last couple of months. I would never, ever have looked into it unless so many of you justified your praise for it.

My character is "Bugtong" on Grim, so please add me to the CAG group :) Seeya online!

P.S. Oh, and to confirm, YES, I did get Issue #5, so hopefully the rest of your post-midnight purchasers/registrants also get this along with the December goodies.

What is this "play" you speak of? I thought these were nothing but decorative boxes to line my shelves with.

It's something I used to do a long time ago...then I found cag.

But in all seriousness, if people end up playing in a group with other people from here let's try and keep the deal stuff out of the game if we can help it.


My thoughts exactly. Let the man have some fun time away from the "office" :)

Well if you are downloading from Amazon you can try downloading straight from Funcom, or vice versa.

I've heard neither are giving very good download speeds lately. Personally I downloaded it really quickly but I got mine off of Steam and I also paid more. :-P

God damnit, I should've waited for the possibility of 12.49 TWD pre-coupon. I didn't think there was any chance with the Steam sale being over soon and it already having that as a daily deal. Also, didn't know the 2K packs or Spec Ops would be part of the EC deal, so I got the D to S bundle with coupon and ended up with extra Bioshock keys rather than just using my coupon on the Strategy pack, ahh man I'm too compulsive :D

Looking forward to the sales this month, though! At least Darkness 2 will be available for 2.49 AC, although not sure if I should just get the WTF pack for an extra Borderlands key for a friend. Hopefully TWD does hit that 7.49 price AC, will pickup an extra code for a friend.

It shows up under Boost packs for 0 coins in the store I believe, but you have to have created a character first. Also the launcher should say something about Magazine #5 version of the game.

So far it seems like everyone buying the game today is getting it.

so if i buy the $15 MP3 on amazon, i get these 4 DLCs for free?



AFAIK yes.

Yes, so far all reports are this way. I can't say 100% for sure you will absolutely get it but it doesn't appear there is anyone there in Norway on New Year's day to shut it off for the time being.

If it's buy or no buy it's not a guarantee so you will just have to take a chance but in all likelihood you will get it.

Also it will be a while before you can verify if you have Magazine #5 for free since you will need to install the game and create a character before you can access it.
