That said, there's nothing wrong with or shady about Gamers Gate if you want to buy the AC games. You might just get Uplay keys anyway (I know you do for AC:R)

Didn't realize that. Thanks guys.


A lot of the important informational stuff is found in post #2 of this thread...
i.e. who they won't price-match; what activates on Steam, Origin, etc; de-authorization info; etc...

MOST of Ubi's PC games since AC2 do require UPlay (formerly UbiSoft Game Launcher).
It pretty much acts A LOT like Steam & Origin now, since they changed it & improved it.
Once activated, some games of theirs can be played in offline mode...except Silent Hunter 5 and HAWX2 (bleh!).

I have had ACR Gold for a little bit from GG - yes, it requires UPlay.

Examples of other Ubi games that do require UPlay include - Driver: SF, AC2, ACB, From Dust.

Wanted to remark that I just had Amazon CS resolve a problem to my satisfaction that I had with the 25% code. They were flexible and went above and beyond where they could have put their foot down. Can't recall if I've ever had to deal with ACS in the many years I've been a customer, but I experienced what I've always heard about it: it's excellent.

I never dealt w/ Amazon CS for PC game issues/Amazon DVG issues, but they were great one-time I dealt w/ them.

There was a $3 off Amazon MP3 downloads coupon out there...and I was silly, blind, stupid, and didn't realize yet that the promo-deal was dead for one day already...
Until the CS guy told me the end-date was mentioned right on the page, after I asked why it wouldn't work.

[slaps self upside head]

The CS guy decided to go ahead and manually added $3 Amazon MP3 to my account.

It's stuff like you mention and I mention that makes Amazon's CS so great.

Cant pass up on syndicate for $3.53 on PC. Heard mixed things about this game but cant pass it up for that cheap. Any reason why 25% off isnt working on it though?

It's a DVD-ROM, not a digital download. 25% is for digital purchases only.

While I liked Syndicate FPS, I never finished it...
Thanks for reminding me that I should.
Game can be quite tough, at times...

Doesn't work on XCOM:EU; BL2; and PSN/XBL Points - which Tony states in the original post in this thread.

Use SQRLUVOC to take 25% off anything in the DVG store except PSN/XBOX points/subs, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Borderlands 2 and preorders.

Don't forget that the PC version of that is a cut down product with worse graphics etc.


If the PC assets are the same as console version, I'd doubt the graphics will look worse on the PC. Even with some tweaks in the right places, you can make it look MUCH better.
If the PC assets are High-Res and HD, while the console isn't - it'll be an absolutely blowout on the PC version. Even more so true, if you do some tweaking in the right places.

If you are getting good performance on a PC version of a game (think 30 frames per sec or above consistently), you likely should and can pump up some EXTRA technical stuff via NVidia/ATI Control Panel, if necessary.
That will blow away what the consoles are doing graphically, with their aging hardware.

This is what I do for MOST of my PC games:
I tweak as much in the in-game graphics settings;
Then tweak in the NVidia/ATI Control Panel (since I have NVidia video card, I'd tweak in NVidia Control Panel);
& Finally in any INI files, if I feel this step is possible and necessary.

That'd be pretty good for a NEW game - NFS: MW 2012 from Criterion. ;)

Wouldn't be a good deal, if it was NFS: Most Wanted 2005 by Black Box ;)
Love that old racer, BTW.

Excuse me for not wanting to read the last couple of weeks or so of pages I missed, but is there any news on the strat first or 1C bundle? Or are those two completely out of the window? I have been following amazon and seen a couple of other deals in the meantime but have not checked CAG for a while now. Thanks.

Yeah, that's why I mentioned "LE" :D

By the way, NFS MW from 2005 was an awesome game, still love the music score

Well, the fact that the coupon doesn't work anymore may actually be GOOD for me. I have been waffling back and forth on Sleeping Dogs so much for the past few days... that when I just read it wasn't valid anymore I was almost relieved I didn't have to think about it anymore.

(I know it's a great game, backlog is huge though and with all the DLC coing out for it I may be better off waiting for a GOTY edition of it)

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). Cheers, Tony

When are these deals scheduled?...

& is Syndicate worth the $8 shipped?

Tony said next month for KOA deal

Syndicate is good but short and tbh I think it would be better for ~$5 mark
