2012 Editor's Choice = suitably high selling games that Tony managed to convince the Publishers to put on credit/sale

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

How is Sleeping Dogs not a game the editor would choose? Come on Tony, do what's right!


I'm betting that both Sleeping Dogs and Hitman:Absolution will follow the Deux Ex: Human Revolution pricing curve - ie, Complete Packs with all DLC at $7.50 or less by Christmas next year. My backlog thanks Squeenix for its predictability in pricing. :bouncy:

Yeah, that's what I'm wanting to hold out on for both of those games, too.
Often regret getting a base game and having the hassle and extra cost of a bunch of DLC later.
And in the case of Batman AC, they even made it a different item on Steam! Kinda annoying.

Sane Brain: "No more game purchases until you finish some of your backlog"
Game Hoarder Brain: "Sounds good"
Amazon PCDD: "I disagree..."


My brain is a little different...

Logic Side of Brain: "I'm done with video game purchases this year! I now have too many games to play and not enough time."
Game Hoarder part of Brain: "Pfft, not possible."
Tony: "Oh look, we have a deal going."
Logic brain: "MMMMMHMHMHMMMMHMHMMMMM!!!!" *muffled screams go by as the logic side of my brain is tried up and thrown into a random janitors closet inside my head*

I was actually hoping that it would somehow magically follow Darksiders 2 trend since they were released at the same time.

It's really striped down from the console version. But fits the need for a good basketball as always

The Fable pack is waiting on DLC Keys. (And I'm assuming the MS people responsible for that don't work weekends.)


I saw, but will we be able to use our EC credit by the time it's up?

Its already too late to get one. You had to buy games near the end of last year to get them.

That being said, $10 for that MS bundle is a great deal regardless.

If you bought any Amazon PC Digital Downloads in November 2012-December 2012, you got these coupons tied to your account.

To figure out how many you have (if you have any), check your e-mails (the e-mail you tied to your Amazon account).
See how many of those coupons you got during those months.

It means you were one of the lucky ones to use your coup on either the 4.99 Hotline Miami or Bio Pack price mistakes.

I had the same thing happen. Really torn on what to apply my last 1 cent on :) really would love another coupon right about now though!

That's how they get you. They leave you with 1 cent, and then you buy something you wouldn't normally buy because you have 1 cent credit.

I had a $5 credit from The Cave pre-order, and because the Coupon takes precedence over the credit (as in, it gets used -first-) and the bundles are 9.99 instead of 10.00...yeah.

I laughed when I bought Fable for .02 cheaper than normal! lol

just a heads up guys- sleeping dogs 9.99 for pc download at the moment if anyone is interested in that. Don't think the coupon applies though


This is such a fun game. I'm 21 hours in so far and loving it. The focus on hand-to-hand combat is great (it's a little Arkham Asylum with some light grappling later and that's not a bad thing), the story is engaging, and the characters are really cool. I particularly like how the developer handled the different cultural touches and showed a real love for Hong Kong. It could have easily been a totally dingy, foreignly alien representation of the island and people, but instead they understood what a magnificent city it really is. I love, love, love the acting in the game.

Many of my friends and family have been there, so this makes me want to go there like right now. :)

If you do buy the game, go in knowing that the DLC is mostly outfits and vehicles, among other things. The clothing items and outfits actually do make a difference since they enhance your abilities in many different ways, but they are not necessary beyond what you can already buy with in-game currency. Buy them once you've gotten further in the game if you wish.

The Top Dog Silver and Gold packs are ones I'd wait on buying later, if at all. I kind of regret buying these since they effectively give you nearly all the Triad, Cop, and Face bonuses. It's fun to unlock them on your own, especially since that's part of the storyline; you're doing missions for Triad and Cop, as well as stuff for Face.

Finally, pick up the High Res pack (it's free). The game looks really beautiful, especially when it rains at night and you're in some of the more neon portions of the city.

Again, wonderful game, so don't be afraid to purchase the "vanilla" version of the game. What's already in the game is what's perfectly necessary. Everything else is icing on the cake.

Hey Tony, how's the key situation for the Microsoft Arcade/Indie pack? Any chance that you might run out of any keys?

I know a few CAGs were concerned about that possibility.

Second, sorry if this has been asked before but I haven't seen it: will DLC be price-matched? I'd like to grab some of the Sleeping Dogs DLC but would rather give Amazon my money.

Thanks!

Care to explain how you got the Fable Pack? :P


AoE III is, very easily, the worst of the series. It isn't as big a letdown as Empire Earth III though. It's a decent RTS if you don't mind the wrong accents and some liberties taken with historical accuracy, which was a disappointment to me after loving the history lessons of the older games. For $5 I think it's well worth it if you haven't played it, or don't already own it. If you're a fan RTS games, and don't mind a middle of the line experience, then you'll get a lot of hours out of your investment. It doesn't do anything terribly, but doesn't do anything exceptionally either.

You can probably get Sleeping Dogs for under $10 in the Steam trading thread, since there was a price glitch and Steam sold it for $4 or so.
