For those who bought the Seriously big bundle of Serious Sam games, you can get the missing two classic games via steam store for $1.49 (called Serious Sam 3: BFE Deluxe Upgrade)

Just a PSA since Amazon doesn't care it.

You know what really sucks?!? I own KoA + both DLCs (ON AMAZON) but none of them activate on Steam. I'd kill for Steam activation on that game. I hated Origin so bad the games never got more play time. (that and I don't like the blur thing where you turn and the world blurs around you)

You rock!

I already bought it from Amazon for Origin, but I will RE-BUY it again if you can swing the same priced Steam Key.


This... double dipping is almost unheard of but to get rid of Origin.... in a SECOND.

There is a mod that changes the difficulty of the game as some people found it too easy. This seems to do something to the executable and some other fancy things. I've noticed that it only works on the Origin version of the exe and not the Steam version (I have both). Something to keep in mind for those that want to make the game a bit more difficult...

Origin is benign and I don't get the hatred toward it. Yeah Steam is more convenient, and KoA does have achievements with the Steam version if you care about that, but honestly Origin just sits there and doesn't bug me ever, nor is it some secret spyware.

I'd grab KoA on Steam- I played it on Xbox360, but didn't touch the DLCs. I'd probably re-play it on PC.

Lol we'll see what happens but that law firm now has 2 Voicemails and 3 emails from me.

@TONY OK, but because it's already been said that the EC list will fluctuate during the month, now that you've put the possibility of Steam keys for KoA on the table, people might hold off on the Origin version (myself included). If the Origin version disappears from the EC in the mean time, and the Steam version doesn't make it in time for the EC (and I understand no one ever said that it might, but we're an optimistic bunch :)), people will declare mutiny. Just make sure that the Origin version stays on the EC til the end of Jan. If there hasn't been a development in the Steam codes, then I'll get it, and double dip when/if a Steam version does come through Amazon.

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

The current sale price is through 1/5, I believe, KoA will stay on the list even if the price is higher, just like the other games that have gone down and up, like TSW.

If people want to pass on this deal because the Steam keys MIGHT be available, they are free to do so, but there is no guarantee they will be, or if their pricing will even be competitive. It's the gamble you take. Stuff like this is probably why he doesn't announce plans for things that are not concrete.

Nice.

Concerning The Secret World controls, anyone have any experience with 6+ button mice that they want to share concerning any MMO? It seems to me it would be easy to map numericals (1-6) and quick action keys to them. For some reason I can't map anything to the regular left and right clickers on my mouse. Any experience with "gaming mice"?



I've just used my venerable MX510 (same as MX518 & G400). I tend to use my closer thumb button for Axion/Ventrillo/Teamspeak and my further thumb button for auto-run toggle.

It doesn't sound like Steam keys for KoA are on the table any more than they were previously. Tony just has a new contact to begin possible negotiations. I have a bad feeling people are REALLY jumping the gun on this one.

I just ran the numbers, and there is currently a 0.03% chance of Amazon getting steam keys for KoA this year, and even lower for this month.

If people are "declaring mutiny" the only direction it should be aimed towards is themselves. All Tony has said he's done is sent some emails and made some phone calls, there has been no reply or anything. This is why he keeps scaling back on the information he shares with us.

I don't believe there has been any talk of removing games from the EC list, only adding them. The price is the only thing that changes with games on the list unless keys run out.

In so many heads here, that equates to a near-guarantee of it happening.

I was reluctant to get Origin but since BF3 requires it, I had no choice. Now that I've used it, I don't see any problems with it. It's got less sales (well, I haven't bought a thing from Steam this winter sale) and less of a community and that's about it to me. Having all EA games under another roof doesn't sound like a bad idea to me either.

So, KOA for Origin at $10 it is for me :)

EA doesn't give out Steam-Version keys to 3rd party distributors like Amazon DVG.
They been trying to shove Origin/EADM down our PC gaming throats for YEARS.

If you want Steam on an EA game, you're likely going through Steam to get them.

KOA:R Steam-Version could happen b/c EA didn't publish the Steam-version; 38 Studios did.
There's more leeway often given, when dealing w/ EA Partners Program; when you're Independent and NOT owned by EA.
So, if anyone holds the rights to selling Steam-versions of keys, it's probably the State of Rhode Island.

Guys, I wouldn't put too much hope into Tony getting Steam keys for Amalur. I passed along that address but my best guess is that the court appointed bankruptcy receiver isn't in a position to start negotiating with Valve for keys and open things up for sales. Most likely outcome is he politely declines and goes about setting up an 'auction' or negotiated sale of the IP. Really wouldn't expect the possibility of Steam keys for Amalur until that happens which is probably months off.

@Tony: I just noticed that the PC and Mac versions of The Walking Dead were two different prices:

Mac - $18.74
PC - $24.99

Is there a reason for the difference?


So you know, The Walking Dead: The Game (by Telltale) is a STEAMPLAY game.
Buy a version of a game that supports STEAM and has the STEAMPLAY logo;
activate the key over Steam (From a 3rd party) or buy it through Steam directly;
AND you will then own both Windows PC and Mac versions.

Looks for this STEAMPLAY symbol on a game's Steam page, to see if getting a Steam key of a game actually nets you BOTH Windows PC and Mac Versions:

It's a great port, have it myself and have not heard anyone say otherwise. Looks great, framerate is solid, supports 360 controller too.

Just keep in mind - w/ KOA:R Steam-version, while in-game, you will STILL need a valid EA Account and/or EA Origin account to activate any DLC.
