Seems unlikely that they will make it free, considering the withdrawal of the $5 Bioshock Dual Pack.

So is Hotline Miami going to drop more or is $2.50 with the coupon the lowest it is going?


If you wait long enough I bet it'll be in an indie game pack, but for now, I really doubt it'll drop more considering the reviews and sales.

There's a possibility of it being free if another retailer has it for $5. Might get PM'd. Bioshock dual pack got taken down because it was never meant to be free, Tony made a mistake.

WE'RE CRASHING THEIR DOWNLOAD SERVER! I bet Funcom is going "WTF" at this.

...or probably not. But yeah, it's really slow for me unless I devote 100% of my bandwidth to it. I might get 250k/s then if I'm lucky.


Actually, its their own fault. What kind of an installer crashes hours into a 16 GB download? I've tried it three times after blowing away all the data after the 2nd attempt didn't work.

Always on "patching resource database" 4/4.

Wha? I shut my computer off and came back and it picked up right where I left off.

This kept happening to me to, was what my earlier post was referring to. When it crashed it would not retain the download progress before. On my 4th try though, it did retain the info and finished up.

And now I am realizing that my pc is not up to the specs for this game. :lol: What I get for impulse buying. Oh well

Play it on DX9, not DX11, set everything to low, and if that doesn't work, start cycling down your resolutions.

Called Amazon cs to see if I could get a refund on 2k Strategy Super Pack since I bought it yesterday and it's $5 cheaper today. He offers a $5 promo credit. Not as good as a refund, but I'm planning to buy something from Amazon anyway. Checked http://www.amazon.co...tegy super pack and it's back to $19.99. Wow, that was fast.

Yeah, I've been crashing constantly in the Secret World trying to run 1920x1200 resolution and DX11. You'd think an i7 and GTX 660 Ti could handle it, but reading on their forums apparently that's a pretty common issue.

I might have to swap down to DX9 and see if it's more stable, but I want my eye candy, darnit!

It's because the game is badly optimized on DX11 to nVidia cards. Hopefully it will be fixed, but in the meantime, using DX9 only loses you SSAO and tessellation. Normally I'd be bummed about no SSAO, but in this game I really can't notice the difference much. Tessellation is nice (bumpy ground), but really not that big of a deal.

I switched to DX9 and I can set everything to max no problem. Game looks great.

Well I'm happy, got Darkness 2 for $2.50 :) Wish amazon would price match steam on the Total War Grandmaster collection as I'd rather buy it from amazon :P


I'll agree with this, a PM on the assorted games/bundles in the Total War series (75% off at steam) would be great.

Whoa, it was down to $15 pre-coupon? Wish I had seen that. I held off on buying that pack even though I had a 2K coupon burning a hole in my pocket because I was waiting for a super-duper complete version of Civ 5. For $10 dollars though, I would have definitely taken the plunge.

How long was it up for $15? Is this something that I managed to miss for the better part of a day?

EDIT: Oh I see that it was just a momentary glitch. Don't feel so bad about missing it now. I can't be watching this thread 24/7. So if something slips by, it slips by.

Maybe 10-15 minutes. It was back to normal price right after I got off the phone with their cs.

Thanks, tried it with DX9 and low, and playing windowed seems to work ok enough. This is just my first experience with a game telling me my comp is below suggested requirements. My poor baby is old now I guess :cry:

But now that I finally have it working and Necrotron sent me a steam invite I will have to play with you guys!

Is Transformers Fall of Cybertron likely to drop in price anytime soon? ($29.99 Amazon, $24.99 Daily on Steam atm). Seems like newer games have been discounted a lot more but this game stays a bit on the high side :/.

Ahha, can get spec ops for 2.49$ now and I jumped at the chance to get it for 4.75 after coupon and trade in at GMG.


Oh well, I don't regret it! 4.75 was an amazing price

It's Activision. The only decent deal they've done in a while is with the Prototype franchise and that's probably because the second game was a huge bomb.

Same here. $10 is a no-brainer, $15 is just a bit too much for me to add to my backlog.

No idea. Obviously.

Thanks, I'll just give it a run in DX9 then and be done with it.

Only way Dark Souls goes lower than $18 (before coupon) is via price match and I don't see Gamestop or Gamefly doing that this sale cycle.

Need some opinions:

I have 1 of the 2k coupons. The only 2 games I'm looking at is Spec ops, and nba2k13.

I'm not a basketball fan at all (in fact, not a fan of any sports) and the last basketball game i played was nba jam for snes. But, id get more hours of play from nba2k13 than spec ops.

Spec ops to me looks like a better quality game, in terms of it having a good story line, and action based (but i heard its short).

So....thoughts? :\

To those on the fence about KOA, go get it fast! I've been playing it for about 2 hours and is a blast. I really like the combat system. The only annoying thing is the FOV, but I see there is a generic fix that I'll be trying tonight.
