Well,

I was undecided for the last day on what I should get from this sale and in the end I got the Dead Space Pack using my cagrocks code. I go again today to get Singularity which was 7.49$ last time I checked and it's price went up to 9.49$.. what gives ? I really love Amazon with all the sales but this 2$ extra is enough to push me away from buying it. I was gonna buy it but for 7.49$, if there was any mention of the price change I would have acted earlier :roll:

I haven't tried either, but most people recommend the G500. I've heard them sale the grip is better and G9x is shaped differently. I know the MW3 one has been dropping steadily in price since it's released.

They all review well so I don't really think you could go wrong.

I don't do any hardcore or competitive FPS gaming so I don't know, but that's where the DPI might come in handy I think.



I have small hands and a palm grip. My venerable MX510 is still going strong after many years of WoW abuse and backpacking (similar to the later MX518) and the current iteration is the well regarded G400, all have the same shell. I like light mice.

I use a Razer Naga Hex which is a 5600DPI mouse. I haven't played any competitive online stuff on PC (BF3, etc.), but I typically use a default setting of 1200 in the software. 2000 should be fine; more than that is kinda like having a TV or monitor capable of +60Hz.



There is a point to faster framerate computer displays. 60 Hz isn't the end all be all of smoothness. Oversimplified: Spin your cursors around in a circle around this post, see how you can make out the individual positions of the cursor at 60 Hz?

Also consider when your GPU can't sustain 60 FPS. If you had a 76 Hz Display, you could lock the framerate at half, 38 Hz, and get steady smoother framerate than 30 Hz. My 2209WA can do 76 Hz.

Higher framerate for video is a different story, however even then there are advantages for lower framerate video, At 72 Hz you can play 24 Hz film without judder.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

Any DRM on Simcity 4?

Edit: At least from some of the discussions on the Amazon review, it is DRM free. Now I'm worried about how it runs :(


Run it in software accelerated 3d (rather than hardware) and it runs great on modern PC's :)

Anyone have an opinion on the Square Enix Chaos A Plenty bundle?

I've been waiting a while for a half decent deal on the Kane & Lynch games, and Project Snowblind looks interesting as well. I don't really have any interest in the two Just Cause games, or in the two Conflict titles, so I'd probably sell/trade them away. The coupon should bring it down to about $15, and since Singularity went up in price, and it doesn't seem like Amazon will be price matching Gamefly's sale on the WB LEGO titles, this is all I'd probably get during this sale. Any thoughts on the value of this bundle?

are Amazon Digital pre orders the same as physical, meaning they don't put a charge on the credit card?

We can also use gift cards to purchase it, right?

Somehow the code is working for SimCity.

Yeah the original price was a fat finger error on my part. Sorry I'm just now seeing the questions on this.

Cheers,

I agree. I was just trying to state that it is somewhat user-subjective even though you can fully quantify it. Personally, I can feel and see the differences in high DPI/Hz, though I may not necessarily require or make use of it. Some of my friends (who do game) are somewhat numb to the sensation and are fine with anything over 1500DPI. My mother wouldn't have been able to tell you the difference between 60Hz and 240Hz and she was more of a audio/videophile than most (though I'm sure age was the major issue there). Though you're still correct.

Ooh... in for NiGHTS into Dreams. 50% isn't as good as 75%, but it's a fair price for a great game.

I'm hanging on to that code until I decide whether or not to bite on SimCity.

Conversely, the price of Call of Duty: World at War has actually gone down. The MSRP was $29.99 last night. Now it's down to $19.99. At 50% off, it's now down to $9.99. Coupon now knocks it down to $7.50.


Hmmm....Has COD: World at War (PC) ever been that cheap before ($7.50 after everything)?

Anyone have Ghost Recon Future Soldier on PC? I was looking to pick that up, but a lot of the reviews for the PC version are really negative. I thought the game would be cool to have on PC, but if it's worse than the console versions I'm just going to pass.

I think amazons is just as strong as the others but different.

In my opinion GMGs is the weakest. The free games they are offering are only worth a few bucks. Bioshock has been as low as $2 and spec ops/civ hve been 5-7.5. The cash back is nice though but net value is lower

Steams is the strongest if you don't have xcom and you are interested in it. Although you probably will be able to get xcom cheap or free from the amazon promo as well

Amazon gives you the mot flexibility and choice but if you buy a lot of 2k games its weak.

Right now I think the $37 newegg physical copy from last year or an amd coupon is the best bet for those jut wanting the game.


Well said.
If only the $15 credit could work with Bioshock Infinite Season Pass, it would be awesome.

You could also request payment in the form on Amazon gift card (esp since it's from an Amazon bundle). Then just redeem the gift card before you send the key. That's generally what I do since most of the games I've sold are from Amazon bundles, and I'd rather have the Amazon credit anyway.


Amazon GC has always been my first choice for trading or selling extra games. Very easy and convenient

are Amazon Digital pre orders the same as physical, meaning they don't put a charge on the credit card?

We can also use gift cards to purchase it, right?

Yes and yes. No charges for pre-orders untill keys are delivered, and you can use gift cards to buy.

Hmmm....Has COD: World at War (PC) ever been that cheap before ($7.50 after everything)?


The cheapest was $9.99 but it was given FREE with BO2 Deluxe or BO2 Deluxe upgrade. Deluxe Upgrade was $9.99 in many Steam regions before it was removed and many people who had the upgrade got an extra copy of WAW and sold it for $5 - $7.50

Saw this coupon and got excited, only to find out that Amazon doesn't sell DmC PC at all? What is up with that...


Amazon carries a few Capcom titles and unfortunately DmC is not included. It is an awesome game by the way

I can say that for Mount and Blade the DLC isn't cross compatible as is the case for Ship Simulator Extremes. I assume it is the same way across the board.

This rang a bell in my head and I checked my list. Yeah, I own Ship Simulator Extremes. Why do I own Ship Simulator Extremes? When did I buy Ship Simulator Extremes? Was this part of a bundle or package? :lol:

I am pitching the Ticket to Ride bundle next week :).

Also, for those that pre-orded and didn't cancel, you'll still get your additional $15 credit post launch. The $30 credit post launch will only be for people who purchase from this time today onward.

That $30 credit is only good on 2K games still, right?


Yep.

Sadly, that was as predictable as the sun rising in the east.


Yeah, we were pretty sure it would be taken advantage of, I wanted to get a feel for scale relative to real pre-orders though. I have that scale now, which is nice, and it only took us a day to get there.

So, just for those very few naive folks who didn't think any scamming would occur with the pre-orders packaged with coupons test Amazon is trying to do here...here's a bit of nonsensical proof...

http://forums.steamp...70#post34048870

I'm sure there's posts like this all over by now. I have suspicians that the dude who made that post used the loophole often.

Edit: that dude henser is still saying he can buy unlimitd $15 games for free. He's been giving them away on the thread all flipping morning. I'm sure Amazon can trace buying history that follows that pattern and figure out who it is.
