I don't even think you can get TSW added to Origin if you wanted to (unless you buy it there of course). Has anyone been successful in getting EA to add it to their Origin account?

I can confirm the keys from Amazon, which is for the version published by EA, do not activate to Origin either through the normal or legacy links that I have gotten other EA games to activate there with.


Thanks.

Is anyone able to get Spec Ops: The Line for 2,50 for me from Amazon? (If it is a steam version?) Or does that require some kind of coupon I don't have? I wouldn't want to waste anyone's coupons. If it is no big hassle and possible, it would be greatly apreciated :) I don't own a creditcard so I can't buy from Amazon.


Its steam DRM and $2.49 if you have the $5 off for the Editors Choice. Valid the month of Jan. only.

It requires a coupon that you got by buying anything digiitally from amazon before the first of the year. You might try checking the steam trade and group buy thread, perhaps someone buying the bioshock 1/2 + spec ops $10 bundle ($5 after coupon) doesn't want spec ops and would sell it to you for $2.50-3.50, that's how I got mine a couple of days ago.

I see! Thanks for clarifying that :) I'll check if I have any luck there.

It's steam. "Steam account required for game activation and installation."
The coupon required you to have bought a Digital Download game in Nov/Dec of last year.

[Razor2]'s terrible do not buy it, please.


I had it from an Indie Gala so I pulled it up to see if it's worth two bucks.

It's not. Clumsy controls, very cramped and narrow game play space (I couldn't get it to run in widescreen, and the HUD is on the left and right sides of the screen, making it even narrower). Very generic ships. Weapons are boring. It's not even as fun as those DOS Freeware shooters I used to play as a teenager.

Sine Mora, Gundemonium, Jamestown -- there are some very charming SHUMPS out there to play instead. Skip this one.

BTW if there's some especially good Amazon deal can someone please repost it here? I'm finding that thread pretty insufferable these days.


Yes please. I feel like every time I venture outside this thread, I discover other parts of CAG are the typical internet cesspools of abuse and mean-spiritedness.

Does anybody know if or when War of Roses will go on sale?


It's on sale right now on Steam. It's also on sale on Amazon, where if you ordered another digital game in November or December, you'll have a $5 coupon, bringing the price down further.

Just remember that there's a standard and a deluxe edition.

My internal debate over war of the roses continues. I bought a chivalry 4 pack a few days ago and gave them to friends. War of the roses looks similar but some say its better some worse. The amazon price is hot but I'm not sure ill play it having chivalry and having friends who will be playing chivalry as well.

I know this has been asked before but is Tropico 4 worth it if I own Tropico 3 and haven't spent much time with it? I played the demo for 4 and became interested but wanted to get the opinions of all of y'all who have spent some significant time with the game.

War of Roses does look fun, but it seems like something I'd never get to just like Mount & Blade.

WTF happened to Skyrim? It was set at $40 before the community vote as a base price and so people voted assuming we'd get 50% off the base price, not for them to jack the price up to the equivalent of 25% off. Steam is causing me to lose alot of faith in them this sale.

Hey everyone, I just updated the "Enhanced Steam" plugin to show you the actual amount saved when looking at a bundle. New update version is 0.6.

For now, you may have to load the bundle page, let it find out which games you own, then refresh the bundle page, which will show you the actual amount you'll save for the bundle. This is calculated by adding the cost of all of the items you do not own and subtracting the bundle price.

It was never $40 as a base price.

I think you're confusing "base price" with "sale price". When it was up for vote, it was already on sale for $40 (33% off). The 50% off vote was not for 50% off the already discounted price, it was off of the base price ($59.99, which hasn't changed)

False. It was discounted 33% off to $40. The base price was still $60.

Most people say no, Torchlight 2 improves upon 1 and there is no multilplayer in torchlight 1.

If you like Diablo then get Torclight as it's made by ex Diablo devs. I recommend going straight to the second game. First game is fine, but the second has online co-op.

Wish it'd been Sleeping Dogs instead of Skyrim, but that's just karma for all the votes I was laughing at earlier, I guess.

The good news is, gamersgate finally refunded me for the beth packs they took away.

What's the thought on Tropico 3 vs 4? 3 is on GMG for 1.75 (fake edit: I guess 3 isn't steam) GMG does have Jet Set Radio for 2.38 after coupon (GMG30-DPLIM-DN831)

Also, all kinds of end-of-sale stuff going on over at GOG today.

4 is probably the better game simply because the engine is a lot better/easier on computers. 3 is not very well optimized. 4 doesn't really look any better, but I can't say that bothers me in those types of games.

Tropico 4 is quite similar to 3. That said, 4 is an improvement in most ways, graphics, gameplay, bugs, story, etc. There is also the Modern Times expansion that adds another large campaign.

I'd recommend 4 over 3 if you haven't played much of 3. If you have played 3, then you probably already want 4 for the improvements and new missions.

Agreed. You know it's bad when even the normally unflappable Tony states that the thread is "sucking his soul." Sigh.


That depressing thread, like Amazon's PC gaming indexing, is a complete clusterfuck.

Re: DoW Franchise. I've said it numerous times since blind buying it last week: excellent value. Putting in an hour or so for a mission, not doing any crazy marathon gaming, is the way to go, IMHO. Accumulated 13 hours in DoW's 11 missions, about 2 hours into Winter Assault which has 6 or 12 missions. At this rate, the hours of entertainment will be worth the $9.99...

Multiple edits as auto-spelling is shaq-fuing me in the ass.

I have nothing to add to the Tropico 3/4 discussion but just at this very moment realized that my holiday Trailer Park Boys marathon on Netflix has finally educated me on the identity of your avatar. :lol:

Painkiller 50%-75%
Magika 75%
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 75% $2.50 each
Dark Souls 50% $20
Sniper Elite 75%
Tomb Raider 75% (all nine for $15)

Its a good deal but I know I would never play all nine Tomb Raider games, are there 1 or 2 of them which are stand outs?
