Acknowledged.

Although I think it'd help to have in the deals forum because the deals are live for only two hours or until supplies last, like Amazon lightning deals.

I think I much rather just wait for someone to post about the deals than having to watch their stream to get the info.

I know where I'm going to be at 5pm EST. :)

...Though I can just picture their "exclusive offer on Assassin's Creed III": Preorder Assassin's Creed III and get 50% off Assassin's Creed II, AC: Brotherhood, or AC: Revelations!

I wouldn't get too excited by this. Anyone remember Amazon's Gold Box Events? Yeah, this will be something like that.

I can see them announcing that they'll add $10 credit to Assassin's Creed III pre-orders made during the two hour period

I picked up a :ps3: copy, and I'll trade in the copy I bought a short while ago to Gamestop for $14 base. :razz:

If this is how the deals are going to go (The Darkness II for PC notwithstanding), this just might be Amazon's comeback in the making...

EDIT: I might have to retract my statement--AC:R plus $15 towards the ACIII Encyclopedia Edition for $19.99? You can probably find AC:R for $5 this holiday season (it's gone as low as $10 a couple of times already) and I'd rather just get the standard ACIII. :\

All in all, I'll still watch this every week even if there turns out to be only one good deal during each show.

Recap:
30 min show where they talk about how much they'd pay for a game. Then they reveal the deal and then show off gameplay, approximately 10 min per game. It's gonna be a weekly show going on "all holiday season."

Deal 1: DMC HD Collection (PS3,X360) for only $9.99 (67% off!)
Deal 2: The Darkness 2 (PC Download) for only $5 (83% off!)
Deal 3: Assassin's Creed Revelations for $19.99 PLUS $15 off Pre-order of Assassin's Creed 3: Encyclopedia Edition

Thanks. Got DMC, talked myself out of Darkness 2 because I prefer Steam, and the AC deal was weak. I expect to get brotherhood and revelations for $10 or less.

Somehow I missed 3 threads about DMC HD. IDK where they all were at 6pm today when I checked the deals section.

Bumping this because it's a new Friday and this seems the best way to know where to go to watch the live stream. I'm hoping for at least one good deal like last time with DMC HD. :D

EDIT: Never mind.
