Here is another page where it calls it just age of empires II
Hope it is the gold edition with the expansion included.


I hope that they're gonna add the first one too, but with the HD support. I want the Romans.

Tony, where is the ebook part of the Tomb Raider preorder? I got everything else but the kindle ebook thing. I checked my kindle app on my tablet and then checked my amazon account but there is no ebook listed in either the digital orders page or the ebook page.


I'm in this camp too. I can't find any code for it nor anything in my account.

If the game gets HD support, hopefully a patch for the retail version is made available.

Or I could just check the OP, which is where announcements like this should be copied to. Or if tony doesnt want to, then enable the wiki and let xanchui do the copy/pasting at the same time he is spamming it over at Slickdeals.

I just got an email from Amazon for "The Final Hours of Tomb Raider." but it is only available for Android devices while I have an iOS iPhone :cry:

Is Pathologic that horror game that everyone was raving about earlier? Because it's in the new indie gala, and I might have to pick it up if it's good.

EDIT: Well, I bought it anyway. Take this Paranormal Desura key: GZHYQ-NXANA-SGYCE-U8VG8-ZPRX0

Totally agree. The game is awesome indeed.

TressFX is giving me many performance issues though and I hope they fix it in a patch or an AMD driver update. Not only it kills the performance but the game hangs for few seconds every minute or so

Here is a brief performance comparison:

HD 6990 Ultra and Ultimate (TressFX Off in Ultra and On in Ultimate)

1920x1080 and 5992x1080 Eyefinity with Bezel Compensation :

I tip my cap to you, sir. I'm rocking a comparatively pedestrian HD 7970 Ghz Ed OC'd to 1170, with an i5 3570K OC'd to 4.4. On Ultra (with Shadows to Normal and FXAA), I average rock-solid 60. With Ultimate (same customizations), it's 40-60 variable. As gorgeous as the hair can look, the constant juddering from the framerate changing is starting to drive me crazy. And capping it to 30 through RadeonPro caused some weird issues.

When the game was hanging I thought it was a crash and Alt+Ctrl+Del but waiting for a few seconds (can be 10-15 seconds lol) the game would work again. Adding a 3rd GPU would make my 3 monitors loose sync and turn black within a minute so only 2 GPUs in CF are working for now. TressFX is not worth it untill they fix that issue and try to minimize the performance hit.
I've always hated nVidia for their gimmicks and now AMD seem to be doing the same lol.

What resolution do you use ?

I did the benchmark on Ultimate (with TressFX off) and was getting avg 40 fps with a 2500k (OC to 4.0GHz) and a non-overclocked 560 Ti - 448 Core. Looks like they did a pretty good job to optimize the graphics.

Man, I keep hearing good things about Tomb Raider. Really tempting.
Though I'm kind of hooked on Guild Wars 2 right now so I should be able to hold out for a sale. A complete Tomb Raider Pack maybe? I haven't owned/played any Tomb Raider game.


EDIT:Claimed
Also, didn't know where else to put this, but did anyone want a copy of Dungeon Defenders from the Humble Bundle? PM if interested.

Yeah, the Tomb Raider pre-order situation has been kind of a mess but I am quite enjoying the game. I got my $5 credit and the Android copy of The Final Hours (luckily I have an Android tablet + phone), but the scavenger hunt thing has been not so convenient. Hope future pre-orders go smoother.

I was having the same issue with my GTX 670 -- then I upgraded to the lastest BETA drivers 314.14 -- and not crashed since (played couple hours straight). Hope that helps. If not -- I did tweak a couple settings too -- let me know and I'll get you the exact set-up.

How do you get the pick-up code for the tomb-raider scavenger hunt ? I had emailed them a copy of my amazon receipt to get the access code; but now it wants a 'pick-up' code ?

Ack read back in the thread and see that others have this same problem :(

You would think that when you emailed them asking for a scavenger hunt code they would also send a pick up code and/or allow you to reupload the pdf of your receipt instead of a bloody photo....

Thanks for the tip. I'm waiting it out though. Upgrading drivers was the first thing I did. I had seen settings that help like turning off Exclusive full screen, TressFX, Tesselation, etc. I'm just not ready to sacrifice visual quality to play the game now vs a few days when it gets fixed.

HD? never heard of it.


It's big news on the Steam forums. It was uncovered here: http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=517122

It seems one of the games devs now works for Valve and is rumoured to be preparing a souped up Steam version. Compatibility with modern OS's, widescreem, DX9 rather than DirectDraw.

I used to love building huge castles. Games between a friend and myself used to run to hours per game because we were both defensive gamers that wanted huge castles before anything else lol. Was more like playing SimCity than an RTS.

also... damn those Monkeries*!!!

I'm a plain-jane 1080p kinda guy, but for less demanding games like Dishonored, I'm thinking about downsampling. But we'll see.

I used to create 'gauntlets' and abuse the AI's pathing. Wall off my half of the map, except one small opening. Funnel them into long winding paths surrounded by towers and archers, lol. The thing was, even with all of the awesome fan made AIs, none of them I found improved the pathing logic. I also enjoyed the map that had the giant palm tree forest in the middle, with an oasis inside it. If you 'chopped' your way to the oasis, you could move trebs into range of enemies and rain down death from a protected area.

Just to clarify, I no longer update the OP until the deal is live, or very close to being live on the site. I will continue to update the OP as deals go live, however, customers were contacting CS, and asking for credit because they were confused about deals in the OP not being at the advertised price.
