Does anybody know if Hitman: Absolution Professional Edition is a limited edition? That is to say, will I still be able to pick it up a year from now?

I bought the bundle with Burnout Paradise and NFS: Hot Pursuit, but the codes don't work on Steam? Am I missing something or do I need to contact Amazon?

EA games use ORIGIN, not Steam.
They've been trying to push ORIGIN (formerly EADM) down our throats for YEARS.

Most recent EA games (since BF3) require ORIGIN and are NOT even available for sale via Steam - especially since DA2 and Crysis 2 (original vanilla edition) got kicked off Steam b/c they were having DLC not being sold via Steam.
You'll have those few rare instances, such as when a EA Partners member (i.e. Crytek, the now gone 38 Studios) has some leverage in how a game can be digitally delivered & might sell a Steam Version ONLY through Steam directly.
Hence how Crysis 2 wound back up Steam w/ all DLC in Crysis 2: Maximum, yet DA2 DLC is still not on Steam b/c it still has DLC sold only via BioWare Store or Origin.

EDIT:
Some of the more recent keys of EA games that you could purchase directly through Steam, those might activate up on Origin, BTW.
I actually have DAO: Ultimate and Burnout Paradise from Steam - and those keys activated up NO PROBLEM via Origin.

Interested in Bioshock 1 and 2. Amazon reviews say there's alot of problems and it has Securom + Steam + Windows Live. Anyone on CAG have any experience with it recently??


I got it with the Deep Sea bundle last month, I've been playing BioShock 1 and had no problems, some resolution issues but I attribute it to the port and me messing around with setting. Its fine if you just run it, I've been using a 360 controller as well and its been smooth. But no issues concerning Steam.

There's no Windows Live/Securom with BioShock 1 I believe but BioShock 2 has GFWL/SCRM, but I haven't run into any issues concerning the aforementioned measures.

Also I still have a Hitman: Absolution $5 off pre-order code if anyone wants it. PM

For Bioshock 1, you are referring to the Steam version right?

BOTH.

In short - in the USA, this game requires BOTH Steam & G4WL.

Now, the details...

Dark Souls: PTD Ed PC requires Steam (for some reason) in ALL of the USA versions.
That part is listed on Amazon DVG's page.

Additional Info: Steam account required for game activation and installation



This game REQUIRES G4WL, as well - especially for the Multiplayer.
That's listed on the Steam page.

Additional: Online play requires software installation of and log-in to Games For Windows - LIVE, Microsoft Xbox 360® Controller for Windows® (or equivalent) is strongly recommended.

Once you get the internal render mod the game is fine and looks great then. The was the only real issue with the port. Some had issues with the 30fps lock but there is a mod that removes that as well but im not 100% sure if they worked all the bugs out it yet or not though.

The port is not perfect, but playing on pc Dark Sous PtD is fantastic!
Here is the official blog for the mod:
http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/

It adds SMAA/FXAA antialiasing, SSAO, blur mod, dof mod, anisotropic filtering mod, texture replacement, more stuff that I can remember AND 60fps with the following bugs:

In other news, I believe that all the possible issues with the FPS unlock are now known, and there is a way to deal with most of them as of version 1.8:

Sliding down ladders can make you fall through the ground. Workaround: don’t slide down ladders with unlocked FPS.
Jumping/rolling distance is slightly reduced at 60 FPS. Workaround: in case you need to do one of the 2 or 3 jumps in the game that need maximum distance, use the new toggle key to toggle a 30 FPS limit for the jump, then toggle back to 60 after it.
Slope interactions are slightly different at 60 FPS compared to 30, which may make you “stuck” at small obstructions from time to time. Workaround: rolling if there is space, walking back and forth a bit if there is not. Toggling the 30 FPS lock for a second in the worst case.


Enjoy the damn game, its really good!

Thanks Tony, that is really awesome. I have it pre-ordered from Amazon and can't wait to play it. Will the $5 credit apply to the order or will it be a separate deal?

this seems to be an excellent time to repost my question.

In light of this announcement, I'll ask another question as well. Will there be any kind of discount on the Professional Edition?

I've also pre ordered and I think it's just a $5 promo credit as in on a separate gift card not off the pre order itself.

how are you folks making a backup of your amazon games?

I was reading this article about a person whose amazon account was closed and apparently lost all her books. That got me thinking a little about making a backup of my games since by now even with Tony's crazy prices, it would cost me a bit to buy back my backlog.

I do have a copy of the codes and at least for the steam/amazon games, I figure I'm covered by both services. But for many of the recent games, they're too big to fit on a DVD and I don't like the idea of buying a new hard drive.

Anyone using any good free cloud services that allow a large file upload?

Probably being a bit paranoid but IF the person mentioned in the article is actually right, then it's a bit scary.

Lol forever:

"You have been banned for the following reason: Hi. Your PR agenda has taken an inappropriate turn and you're no longer welcome as a poster. Thanks. Date the ban will be lifted: Never"

Totally my bad, I didn't read the rules about OTs. Even if I had though, I read the spirit of them as: "We don't want people pretending to be normal gamers but actually affiliated with the games posting how awesome their games are in our forums".

I was trying to get a feel for whether or not people were interested in getting more robust screenshots, videos, developer diaries/Q&As while making/maintaining OTs, not trying to push an agenda. I was also being 100% transparent about everything, as always, which I thought was the point.

I'd have loved to actually talk to a mod as well but that's not possible now as I can't access anything on the site.

More time to spend with CAG!

EDIT: Sorry for asking you to direct questions here, don't do that, apparently it is bannable.

Tony

Welcome to the club. I was officially banned for linking to the NeoGaf IRC room.
It's a site run by a single tremendous asshole. If you look back 2-3 years on old threads, a MAJORITY of the users posting are banned. Period.

I think it stands for "Official Thread". Basically a run down of the game with reviews, screenshots, system specs, etc.

They're pretty cool, really informative, and generate a ton of discussion.

It's the sanctioned thread for a particular game. The "Official Thread". Not official in an endorsed way. Sorry to hear you go Tony. Don't sweat it though but if you read what I posted in the Amazon deals thread on GAF, it seems unlike you to make a thread like that. The timing was not right. Especially if you read that journalism scandal thread with a lot of heat there today.
