Does KOA require Origin? Or can I download it through Amazon and play it without Origin?

You're breaking my heart. If you're okay with that, then that's fine I guess.

If it's separate codes, maybe I'll get it and give someone vanilla KoA. DLC is like $10 a pop anyway so I'll still save some money and get some warm fuzzies out of it (assuming both DLC are included).

Good catch by my OPS guy.

Only Sherlock Holmes 2 will be in the bundle, the first installment is distributed by someone else.

Or you could grow a CAG's heart three sizes larger by selling them your extra key of vanilla KoA for, say, $3 paypal. ;)

Bonus points if you catch the reference.

In all honesty, if you have KoA vanilla already I would be surprised if you could not offload it on the trading forum at least $5, making the DLC net around $7 or less albeit with the limited risk that someone stiffs you on paypal.

As I recall, 38 Studios sold publication rights to EA for a one-time lump sum when they were trying to stay solvent. So EA straight up owns its rights to publish and distribute KoA and can price it as it pleases.

38 Studio's publication rights through Steam are now owned by the state of Rhode Island which has no interest in using or keeping them. They're going to auction off the IP so I wouldn't expect a Steam sale on it until they get a new owner (provided EA doesn't buy them at that time).

Wow thanks for that info.

If the IP is really being auctioned off...it makes me concerned for future installments of the game (in the very slight chance there would be one...) because I doubt the original creators and visionaries of the game would be there to front the hedge.

Keep in mind - BHG Baltimore developed KOA:R, not 38 Studios.
Many of BHG wound-up at Epic Baltimore (AKA Impossible Studios).

EDIT:
Oh, this is interesting - Ken Rolston (Morrowind + Oblivion when w/ Bethesda; KOA:R when w/ BHG) is now at Turbine.

I totally agree with a consumer POV with you 100%.

If you work for a good studio (I know of quite a few from friends) then you want to work and push yourself more because you love the place, so yeah it is a internal thing on that. Rockstar isn't too innocent, but I know 2, maybe 1 now, person who works at Bethesda and have never heard him complain at the place and he's been there a few years at least now.

Generally speaking, working for the big pubs like you pointed out sucks for the most part, but EA is like the Wal Mart of the industry really lol.


Activision (non-Blizzard) might have beat them if they hadn't folded on the Infinity Ward lawsuit during E3 and kept it out of the gaming press. I was so bumed that we couldn't see some of their dirty Infinity Ward laundry.

Do you know anyone who works for Bungie? They seem like Valve (fanaticaly loyal employees and management) but CIA-esque secrecy.

And what's up with Irrational? Seems like no one wants to work for Levine -- I hope Bioshock Infinity turns out ok! I was more pumped up about that game then GTA V.

I am so looking forward to Bioshock: Infinite. The original Bioshock was amazing.

NICE!!!
{does a happy dance}
Will there be a percent-off coupon going on at that time? :P

EDIT:
I probably shouldn't do a dance...it'll probably leave me open for a BRUTAL enemy in that game to slaughter me! :P
And then they'll dance on my grave!
Looking forward to that BRUTALLY HARD game.

EDIT 2:
@Tony
Do you sell special monitor insurance? :P
This is one of those controller-tossing and "scream & cuss at the screen" games, from what I've heard!

I knew someone who worked for Bungie, they left a few years after MS acquired them though. He liked it a lot from what I remember, he just got sick of working on the same thing the entire time and wasn't a fanatical Halo fan. The studio wanted to work on other things but MS was no go on it from what I had gathered.

Don't know anyone at Irrational and no one at least off hand that has worked with Levine.

Well, there wasn't going to be a future under the current state of affairs so auctioning it off is for the best. Just hope whoever gets it puts the Steam version on sale!

[quote name='Amazon DVG Deals'][quote name='sunghost']Tony, you didn't answer our question lol. Is there a chance the DLC will be discounted individually for KoA next month?

Oh lol, right now we don't have it planned.

Well, I think it should be planned.

Glad that we got that settled.

(Of course, I'm a guy who just paid $15.99 for the game all by itself. Silly me.)
