The code works, but unless the keys come in early, I don't think we'll get the steam bonuses.


Oh, so you can't redeem the code on Steam until release? So no pre-loading or Steam preorder incentives? That kinda sucks :(


If the game offers pre-loading, Amazon will give you the code as soon as Steam delivers it and that would be 2-3 days before release. You can redeem the key before the release and pre-load the game but bonuses are exclusive meaning that if you buy the game from Steam, you will get Steam's bonuses, and if you buy it from Amazon, you will get Amazon bonuses which seem to be in separate keys that will be given 2 days after they send you the base game key (or maybe after game release)

Get the Amazon Exclusive "Final Hours Edition," a $5 Credit, plus access to the Scavenger Hunt
Pre-order Tomb Raider and receive the Amazon exclusive Final Hours Edition, which comes with an exclusive Art Book, In-Game Skin for Lara and a digital copy of Geoff Keighley's, "The Final Hours of Tomb Raider" for the Kindle Fire, an access code for the pre-order Tomb Raider Scavenger Hunt to unlock DLC items and a chance to win prizes, and the Shanty Town Multiplayer Map - This ramshackle area features steep climbs, multiple ziplines for quick escapes, and deadly traps to set for your enemies. The art book will be a PDF file delivered to your Steam library. Codes to access the digital bonus offers will be e-mailed to you within two business days after the game releases. You will also receive a code for the pre-order Scavenger Hunt to unlock DLC items and a chance to win prizes. Offers valid on all existing pre-orders.

I forgot about that. I think I'll wait for it's return buy something else. Now I'm looking at the Dead Island upgrade DLC.

There's also all the Saints Row stuff on sale thanks to Deep Silver.

I contacted support about both the $5 gift card and game key and they told I would not get either until release. Hopefully I am wrong.

Negative, you'll get the code and the credit after the game launches.

Edit: I totally forgot the reason I stopped in to post before responding to this. I'm testing pagination with the dev team right now, we've found a bunch of bugs that they'll be fixing but it looks good overall, I think you guys will dig the functionality, it isn't anything fancy but it makes accessing product keys a lot easier.

Since no one responded, I figured I should. I guess this isn't really the best place to ask about casual games. Anyway, I do have Governor of Poker and I like it. I know the Youda games are generally highly regarded and review well on Big Fish. For $2.99 for multiple games it seems like a steal for multiple games if you like casual games and aren't married to a client like Steam or Big Fish.

Well, considering how excited this forum got (both ironically and literally) over Toilet Tycoon, I figured it was worth a try asking about casual games. :)

I have tons of games across many different clients/DRM and DRM free, so non-Steam doesn't bother me. More importantly, it would be nice to get a few more games my wife can play, and she VASTLY prefers the casual stuff.

Big thanks for giving some feedback on Governor of Poker, that looks like the one I will play from the Youda Mega Pack. Either way, that pack would have been an insta-sale for us if it included the Youda Camper game, but we will probably still grab it either way. 2.99 just means I won't order a soda the next time we go out to dinner (yes, that is how I reconcile game purchases when I have a 600 game backlog).

I am really, really torn on whether or not to pick up the Mass Effect Trilogy here rather than playing on my 360. Having only played a small portion of the first game I'd love to finally play these. I am fairly new to the PC gaming scene and a third person RPG shooter just seems like something that would be comfortable on a couch. On the other hand, I'm trying to slowly move toward PC gaming and this is a great deal with the coupon. I have no idea how it will feel playing such a game with a mouse/keyboard when I'm so used to playing games like this with a controller.

Where IS a good place to talk about casual games. My boss told me he'd buy me a golden pony if I can find a CAG for casual games.

I'll split the pony with you Motoki, just tell me where your casual friends talk :).

If you get a golden pony, you have to name it Butt Stallion!

Okay I caved and bought the Mac version of Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 for $11.24 after using the CAGROCKS code. The damned thing has never been less then $15 on Steam in the price history.

And yes I can confirm that it definitely does activate to Steam and also gives you access to the Windows version on Steam.

I'd really like to see a larger and more comprehensive Youda pack, hopefully with Governor of Poker 2 Deluxe. Work your magic, please, Tony.

The price match requests on the website work fine, as for content requests, I like seeing those here, even if I don't get the opportunity to respond to every one of them. We've identified quite a number of titles and added them as a result of CAGs saying "Tony you should carry this".

Just plug your x360 controller into the PC and you are set.

Much better than my Enron stock pony...

Forget THAT. I want to know where I can buy a golden pony.



Dubai (pronunciation key: "Do Buy") ^_~

Yes and no. If that one came back for a cheaper price (which is pretty standard for Amazon), yes. I could see a better Sega bundle coming around though, so in that case, no.



Sadly I own too much of that.

Is that a Borderlands 2 reference? XD



BL2 reference to MLP:FIM's Rarity

I can confirm that no controller will work with either Mass Effect or Dragon Age. They are design to specifically not use controllers and have no options to support anything more than mouse and keyboard.
