Just for the heck of it, I pulled up what I bought from Amazon and Steam. It isn't a ton, but I only started really getting back into PC gaming in about March or April of this year after being out for the better part of a decade. I'm not counting the indie bundles and I'm contemplating pulling the trigger on the 2K strategy pack still.

Darkness II
2K Shooter Pack
Tantalizing THQ Medley
Darksiders Franchise Pack
Spec Ops: The Line
W40K: Space Marine
Plethora of Paradox Games
Supreme Commander
Red Alert 3
Crysis Maximum Edition
Sonic Generations
X-COM: Collection
Mass Effect Dual Pack
~$100

Steam
Penny Arcade Ep. 1&2
Plants vs. Zombies
Left 4 Dead 2
Overlord Franchise
War for Cybertron
Portal 2
Dawn of War Franchise
Saints Row: The Third
~$50

Keep up the awesome work Tony! You're like the guys I used to work with part time at a game store in town. You understand the value in taking care of your customers and unlike even the coolest of B&M staff, you have the pull to make some pretty amazing deals happen. You are the man!

All you guys talking about Spec Ops: The Line:

I just realized this game only came out just six months ago, late June.

People praise it for being a great game, yet in just six months it's basically being given away almost for free on Amazon? Yet CoD MW3 is still $30 a year later?

Don't judge a game based on its price, eh?

Activision is notorious for keeping their games at MSRP for as long as possible. First time they ever did dailies was this winter sale.

I know that you can change it for DV. Apparently it's possible to do so for identity theft as well, though I'm guess you are already aware of that.


Oh I'm aware :). Every month I email/call various agencies and try to resolve. Sometimes I get forms to fill out and send back, sometimes I don't.

On the plus side, if I'm ever accused of a crime they'll probably think I'm some sort of super spy and I'll get a sick book/movie deal out of it.

Who's the babe?, AND WHY THE HELL DOES SHE THINK SHE CAN LAY A HAND ON YOU!?!?

Haha, I have no idea :).

Hey Tony, would it help if you had the reasons why something was purchased on Steam instead of Amazon? I'm thinking about making you a list of the stuff I've bought too, but kinda wanna know how detailed to be.

Still unresolved too. It sucks, apparently, throughout this process my Social Security number was flagged as belonging to a deceased person. You have no idea what kind of complications this adds to trying to do simple things like get a new driver's license/passport or file your taxes.

That whole thing sucks. Glad it sounds like its working out for you.

On another note your local new station workers look like they are from the 80s.

Also, looks like a need a new identity and job. Hmmm Who next.

May I ask how you were able to acquire the 2k Strategy Super Pack for $9.99? I know at one point you could apply the 2k coupon (now expired) and now the $5 off coupon for editor's choice now, but in both cases it would only bring the price down to $14.99.

Thanks for the reply. I am still thinking of buying it at $14.99, but really dragging my feet on this one. I'm not sure if I liked all the hours the Total War Shogun 2 stole from my sleep, and I'm assuming Civ 5 would be even more addicting.

Yeah, I've been so wishy washy about whether or not I wanted to grab Civ V... since I have Civ IV and while I've sunk like 20 hours into it, I find it's really frustrating (either way too easy or way too hard). When that price popped up, I just bit the bullet and grabbed it.

Figured it was a sign that I do need Civ V. >.>

I'm in a similar situation. My wife adores the Civ series. I've been thinking about taking the plunge and $15 isn't a bad deal, but I appreciate you asking the question. I'm down to about another $25-$35 of gaming budget left for a little while and I find myself waffling on if I should just pull the trigger or see what else pops as part of EC.

Funny story about Civ V. I split the 2K Strategy Pack with a friend, installed it last week and loaded up the tutorial. The tutorial never mentions that it doesn't end when victory conditions are met, so I ended up playing for 8 hours and achieved all the victory conditions until I hit 2051 and realized that it was going to go on forever.
