There's no gifting system on Amazon. The only thing I think you could do is walk over to his computer log in to your Amazon and download the client / install on his machine.

If they are your real-life friend, you can download the install file with the key, burn it to a disk and give it to him/her that way.

I'm gonna download Dark Crusade because I'm interested as well.
Maybe you get the setup files, and you just need to install it with the serial.

In that case you need to put the installer on an usb/mail/whatever (4gb for dark crusade) with the serial.

DoW-II has a long KEY, but it activated on STEAM just fine for me.

As others have pointed out, it looks like the only non-STEAM games are DoW-Gold and DoW-DC

Tony

I ended up having some duplicate THQ steam keys-sr3 dow stuff

i havent seen these keys yet- this way,
i can easily keep track of unused keys

I plan using these as gifts to friends.
is the steam key i bought today will be reserved for me?
or will it be generated the day I press the button

I wouldn't ask normally, but lets say if EA buys DOW, i wouldn't want an origin key in April
if steam keys no longer exist;)

Guys, I want you to know that you just successfully took 10 years off my life and almost gave me a heart attack. I saw people posting about not getting keys. Then I read a post about people not being able to activate DoW II on Steam...visited the DoW II detail page again and didn't see our "requires Steam" messaging, started freaking out, thinking "oh man, did I just totally provide bogus info?". Bought the bundle, activated DoW II on Steam. Now I feel relieved and my adrenaline is pumping.

I'm going to watch college football now lol.That was scary.

Cheers,
Tony


It was just the emperor wanting you to buy the bundle...

I'm assuming that you have the THQ Humble Bundle, right?
Then just to let you know, Immortal Throne is much much better than Titan Quest "vanilla"
And it's moddable:
http://www.titanques...r-mods-programs


QFT! Seriously, Titan Quest Gold/Titan Quest + Immortal Throne expansion is awesome. Plain Titan Quest was good, but Immortal Throne adds so much to the game. It's not just an expansion post "final boss", it actually adds all sorts of things like artifacts, caravans, and much, much more (see YouTube link with relevant info below).

Titan Quest Gold was why, for many years, I did not miss Blizzard coming out with Diablo II. I haven't played any Dawn of War games, but I honestly want to say that you should just spend the post-coupon $5 just for Titan Quest Gold; everything else in the bundle is gravy ;)

Can I get some opinions on Darksiders 2? I own the first and I played it for about 4-5 hours before I got really, really bored. I really enjoy God of War (I've beaten all 5 games) and TLoZ , but something about Darksiders didn't click for me. Will the second one be any better?

RTS/Tactical games.

And titan quest it's a hack n' slash alà Diablo.

In my opinion they're not worth it (SR3 dlcs). I'm fine with the base game + the mods (http://www.saintsrow...forum/index.php).

I'm totally lost about this DoW pack, mainly about... where to start playing. Is there a good game to jump in to first? I'm really terrible at RTS games so I've practically avoided the genre.

Saints Row: The Third is actually excellent if you play it vanilla. I have the Full Package and after ~4 hours of playing it I'd say that the DLC is cool, but largely cosmetic. There are DLCs which unlock stuff and let you cheat, etc. I'd say get the deal but don't register any of the DLC until you've finished the game. It's already wild and crazy to begin with :)

By the way, skip the Bloodsucker/vampire DLC, period. I have people saying that you cannot turn it off and are stuck with the vampire finishing moves rather than the larger variety of standard kills (nutshots, etc.). You also cannot uninstall it.

You get all of the DoW games and DLC. The first game is a fairly traditional RTS. The second game is an RTS/Diablo-style-RPG hybrid. You choose squads to take on missions that take place on traditional RTS style maps, but there are loot drops and boss fights. You level up and outfit your squads and they all have there own special powers. You can also play online co-op, or a more traditional RTS style competitive mode.

DoW = RTS
DoW 2 = tactical
TQ = Hack n' Slash RPG

I also own SR3 vanilla and not dying to get the DLCs... unles they cost $2.5 (like during THQ coupon sale, which I missed)

Oooh, I'd <3 to see Amazon DVG put some Capcom games on sale in the EC - i.e. Super SF4: Arcade Edition.

Now, if only Tony could convince Capcom to bring Dragon's Dogma to the PC .... ;)

Does the mod make you stronger, more money, health or just for the look? I have base game.

It doesn't matter if you play 1 or 2 first, but you should play the main games and DLC in order of release.

Thanks for explaining that! I am totally sold on the second game now.

"RTS/Diablo-style-RPG hybrid"?

Nah, I got it for $12.99. Unless there was a pricing error on Dark Souls I don't know about.

What's the second promotion?

That extra $5 was from an Amazon CS who gave it to me when I called in for 2k Super Strategy Pack when it was priced for $14.99 on Jan. 2. It was that price briefly. I had just bought that pack the day before and wanted a refund. Since I used the key, they gave me $5 credit that works on anything. So I was looking at a free DoW Franchise Pack or a $5 MP3.
