If there's any chance of a digital Syndicate for around the physical price of $6-7 that I keep seeing, I'd be in. ;)

Looking forward to the NFS deal next week, if I'm reading everything correctly. :D

Shouldn't the key from the physical copy of Syndicate register on Origin?

Tony, I know its been asked, but I didn't see a reply to this one. Any chance of a price match on http://store.steampo.../?snr=1_4_4__40

Would be more interested in the DLC rather than the game, as I already have that. I see the other weekend deal for sleeping dogs was matched.

Thanks either way.

FYI for $2.50 this little gem looks like a ton of fun:

Thoughts?

Looks like an interesting old-school platformer.

Only problem is that gamers have been flooded with great platformers or games with heavy platform elements. Just looking at the last twelve months Humble Bundles -- gamers have gotten Braid, Limbo, Psychonauts, Rochard, and Super Meat Boy at the price they set, or for little as a $1 for Steam keys or even a penny per bundle. So asking them to take a look at a colorful classic 2D platformer at $2.50 is a tough sell unless the purchaser is a huge fan of the gamestyle and digging its renaissance.

I would try for $1 price point if the developer/publisher is really interested at making some noise.

But as someone who never was in love with the gamestyle and probably won't pick up a platformer unless it was bundled with something else, I might be too pessimistic here.

This. If there are two genres I would tell an indie developer not to make their first game in it would be FPS (which are inevitably multiplayer whose communities die out) and platformers. There are just way too many platformers out there.

We won't be matching that due to upcoming promotional plans...like DA:U+DA2+Mass Effect 1+Mass Effect 2 for $14.99 and KOA + All DLCs for 80% off ($11.99).

Are all things sold by Amazon by ea, origin only now?

If so :/
Hate origin.

KoA is a great game though. My top 5 this year...FOR SURE.
Such a good game. I honestly thought it was as good as the first DA...Though they are two different breeds of rpgs, the quality and gameplay.

Just be glad that EA hasn't decided to Bioware Tony by giving him a boatload of money to 'roid up Origin, only for him to leave gaming in 5 years to market microbrews.

Although I would happily buy some beer bundles from future Tony in that scenario, so I guess we would win either way.

And by the way, the Bioware bundle and the KoA upcoming deals are great! It will be interesting to hear if sales for the Bioware bundle are large or not, considering the recent unfortunate events concerning Origin's Reddit experiences with promo codes. But it should be highlighted that the new Bioware bundle is a nice little price drop, as previously the DA1:U + DA:2 were selling for $10, ME1 for $5, and ME2 for $5. Now you can get all these huge and awesome (or still very good in the case of DA2) games and save $5!

You know, I wasn't going to pick up KoA because I got it from Best Buy for the PS3 this summer. But then I realized I can trade it in to Amazon (locked my trade in already) for an $11 gift card! So I just did and now I can upgrade to all the DLC for like $2 bucks more! Very happy about this and thought I would put this out there if anyone else is in a similar situation.

They certainly do. Unfortunately, there are usually complications outside of my control that prevent me from buying any of the physical copies that end up on sale for these prices.

Fun fact, it was almost a coin flip regarding me working in Austin (you can guess where) vs. Seattle when I took the job here a little over a year ago. You all can thank my now ex-GF, who was still in grad school in Seattle at the time, for me choosing Amazon :).

Tony any chance for a sale on Doctor Who the Adventure Games, Amazon carries all five episodes and each one costs about $5, would love to see them all in a bundle for $10 or less


I'm adding links so you know exactly what I'm talking about, Episode 1 City of the Daleks, Episode 2 Blood of the Cybermen, Episode 3 Tardis, Episode 4 Shadows of the Vashta Nerada, Episode 5 The Gunpowder Plot


I'm talking to them right now about this. Stay tuned. I'm going to pitch a shorter time frame than 1 week to see what demand looks like. If we end up running something silly I'll look to guys like you to make sure we sell enough of it to make it worth while :).

They are EA games, I think this question comes up every time an EA game is on sale from Amazon. The only way to get an EA game on Steam is to buy it from Steam.

Would have picked Amazon regardless. Working under the EA umbrella is just not sensible if you have other options, especially much better options available.

It was a little more complex than that, the choice between going studio side vs. retail was pretty significant, as was the choice between helping to make games vs. working to sell them.

In the end it came down to the relationship, but I definitely don't regret my choice. If I'd chosen differently I wouldn't have had the opportunity to build this awesome community with you guys :).
