Sounds like it most definitely will. If you ever want to check if a PC game can run on your computer use this.

Thanks for the link!!

Everything shows up as 'Fast,' unfortunately for Dedicated Video RAM I need 512 MB, but I only have 256 MB :\

should i buy xcom now? this is the cheapest ive seen for it so far. Do you think the winter sale will have something better? I mean i could wait until next year but why get it when the game might be dead by then.


I don't think multiplayer is the draw xcom. If $20 is too much for you, waiting won't hurt.

im not gonna lie its looks badass, but i just dont want steam giving a better deal like xcom + all dlc for 25 bucks or something, i hope this isnt a mistake waiting

Technically, TWD was cheaper on Gamersgate a few months back, but that deal is dead and gone. $10 is a great price for it. Shoot, $25 and you still would get your money's worth.


Can you explain that technicality from GG and the price that it was?

Any new deal on console today?

If the OP isn't updated by the time the new sale starts, bookmark this link to find out what the deals are: https://twitter.com/gameflydeals

On topic: Since this sale runs a lot longer than their normal PC download sales, I'd wait to buy anything till the next Steam Winter sale starts. This may be the lowest price these games will be, but wouldn't it suck if you do overpay if Steam has a better discount?

I have a Gamefly $5 credit that's expiring soon. I was planning on getting XCOM for the PS3, but I just got a new computer. This video () seems to come to the conclusion that platform doesn't matter for this game.

EDIT: I'll hold off on XCOM and probably get The Witcher 2 since I can get TWD for my iPad down the line.

There was a glitch on Gamersgate earlier this year that lasted a few hours. TWD was $8.98 and if you had the IGN discount at the time it came out to $7.63.

Just a heads up, but apparently you can only use the code 1GFT1112 today only!! New batch of games will show up every two days, so the first batch of games will be on sale for 48 hours.

Other games that will be coming in future sales through December 21 include Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Torchlight 2, Borderlands 2, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Darksiders 2, Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3. A last chance sale will be held on December 22-24, if we are all still here....lol

Is x com really that good? Will it likely be cheaper during steam sale? I have a huge backlog but is this game good enough to cut in front the rest of them?

Just the right price on TWD to talk myself into getting it. Played the demo but it was kinda short... Go-Go point and clicky!

Me too! And their phone verification is terrible. They're only open M-F from 12:00 pm CST to 4:00 pm CST but they don't pick up their phone during that time. They also will randomly call to verify but if you try to call their number right back, you get the generic "our phone support is currently closed." I tried doing online chat 3 times but it just makes you wait in a queue for 5 minutes only to say that no agent is available and to try back later. This is insane!

Anyone know if Crysis activates on Steam, it doesn't say but I know some don't always do.


I'd like to know this as well. I have this on PS3 but I'd be willing to pick it up for PC just to see the improved visuals if I can activate though Steam for under $7.00.

EDIT: If it does NOT activate on Steam...will it at least activate on Origin?

Yep, random phone call I couldn't answer; stupid callback hours. It's not worth it for me, and I'll just let them cancel my order.

Email them at support@gamefly.com and have them call you. It's completely stupid but it's quick. They verify your billing address, last 4 of the credit card, and the name of the game you purchase. It makes no sense!

I seem to vaguely recall they did this randomly some time ago when they were Direct2Drive before Gamefly bought them. It's somewhat of a nuisance but easily enough resolved. *shrug*

I only had to do it the one time then I have bought games here and there from them over the past year or so since that happened and have not ever had to do it since.

It activates through Origin but only through contacting customer support. I had a physical CD copy, called support and had it activated on Origin with no problems.

But honestly don't bother, unless you like the look of another game in you library. It uses securom so you get limited activation no matter what. I don't know what gamefly's policies are for CD-keys but I'd say wait and get on Amazon, sense they will replace your CD-key if you run out of activations

Wow. This is the first time I've actually be talked OUT of a deal on CAG. Thank you very much though. I guess I'll just stick to my PS3 copy and wait for some crazy deal on Amazon or Steam.

Unless, of course, I am not available by phone during business hours for work reasons. TWD will be on sale for $10 elsewhere before too long, I just don't care enough to bother.
