Sorry, no comment. Since I already own RR:U this pack loses most of it's appeal. Taking a quick look into MUD... It looks like Dirt 3 but plays very very arcady (including bashing other riders and then slamming a Monster energy drink). I'd guess it might be more arcadey than Mad Riders (which is an enjoyable game, and largely achieves what it set out to do, though it also it firmly a notch below AAA).

The best two reviews I saw on MUD are
Eurogamer
ConsoleMonster

I'd be interested in picking it up sometime for $5 or less.


:( @ Ashes not playing this.
But, you're supposed to play everything that involved racing, hehe. ;) j/k.
Thanks for the info and reviews on this, Ashes.

Anyone else actually play this MUD FIM Motocross yet?

EDIT:

Actually, yes. It's akin to buying a game for 50% off on Steam during the Summer Sale when you know that it's going to be a daily deal for 75% before the sale is over. It's gonna be cheaper.

Another thing with Amazon bundle pricing is that they will run a bundle (for example, the EA Storming/Burning Bundle) for one price, and then a month later run it for cheaper. It's fairly worthless to buy a bundle when it's at a relatively high price (by Amazon's standards) when you can get that same bundle for cheaper in a couple months... unless you REALLY want to play the games in it immediately.

Not saying that this bundle or other bundles aren't still great deals, it's just smarter to wait, since most of us have massive backlogs and won't get around to these games before the bundle repeats for a lower price.

(Note that there are some rare exceptions, like the $9.99 Squeenix bundle, which Tony expressly said "Will never be happening again".)

Agreed, although ironically MUD is the game I want most out of the bundle (I think).

Tony actually encourages input on what price customers "would have" bought it for. Basically, I would have probably bit on this bundle for $10, as would have MysterD I believe.

Oh, hell yes - I'd be all over this Namco Cars, Jets & Bikes Bundle if it were $10.
No doubt about that.

No... but I have a key that I'm trying to sell for $5. :lol:

Selling Steam keys: Pixeljunk Eden (Cards) $0.75 & Orcs Must Die 2 - Complete Pack (Cards) $1.24 (Or both for $1.75.)

I'm also taking reservations for my Indie Gala August group buy! Please PM me if you're interested. :)

I bought the game on release and it is pretty lackluster.

Very poor bike handling and poor AI.

Steer clear unless you are a diehard motocross fan.

Yes actually, I just put in about 25 minutes so I'll give you a mini review of what I have seen thus far, the good news is I"m still willing to play it after 25 minutes anyways on to the mini review.

Hope that helps people in making a decision. Again just my thoughts from the inital impressions. Take care, hope that wasn't too much of a wall of text. :D

I got it for $10 because I had a $5 Amazon GC from Bing Rewards. It was a no brainer for me because I almost bought RR by itself for around $10 a couple of times. Though I do still need the DLC now. I want to play as a hearse dammit! :lol:

If you guys don't do Bing Rewards I'd recommend going for it. You can get about 16 or so rewards credit per day and then once you get 475 you can get a $5 Amazon gift card credit by email. It takes a while but free is free.

I have my daily routines one of them is going to Bing Rewards, another is the free Amazon Android App of the Day.

Actually, a free PC game of the day would not be a bad idea. Could be a good way to get this crowd to check out some of the many, many casual games Amazon sells. HINT HINT ;)

So, here's an interesting fuckup in the continuing saga of fuckups at ea over simcity.

http://m.neogaf.com/...ad.php?t=524877

Apparently a limited amount of people are seeing the game disappear from their origin accounts (seems to be a very small, few issue at least) and when contacted, EA claims that the retailer that sold the key did a chargeback and that's why they removed the key and resold it to someone else.

The only problem is that neither the customer nor the retailer (amazon in this case) ever requested a chargeback of the funds.

Amazon issued refunds to their customers after the fact but I have to wonder what kind of effect this has on amazons relationship with ea. after they basically cut Nintendo off from selling hardware there, maybe amazon will stop selling ea's always online only games.. Lol

So Tony can you tell us with the Amazon pricing for Amalur Steam keys is planned to be and if it will include DLC, preferably in the next 24 hours so I can decide if I want to hop on this rare Steam sale for Amalur or not?

Guys, isn't this clear: they are going on sale on a higher price first, and then sell for cheap on amazon. Same thing always happens with prominent indie games right before they end up in a humble bundle.

Yes but given the history of lack of sales for this game I just want to clarify and not risk missing a chance at it.

He also never answered (that I recall seeing) when I asked if they were going to get Steam keys for the DLC and if that was going on sale too. I want to make sure I get the DLC in addition to the base.

If the game it's on sale once then it will be on sale more times for a better price. Won't be bitting this time. I may be wrong but I still haven't activated the Origin keys so no loss there. And something tells me Tony it's gonna do his magic and it's gonna give us a sale for a much better price.

It's 75% off @ gmg right now (Origin key), so maybe history is being rewritten!

No that is the Origin version and it always goes on sale. No DLC on sale there either.

I'm specifically interested in the Steam version with the two story DLC.

They gotta get the game before there are any deals. I imagine and I'm just speculating....that Tonys contact with the people that hold the publishing rights to Amalur on Steam, and getting Steam keys from them, are why the games in on sale right now on Steam. I imagine, nobody at Steam knew who to contact in regards to it and Tony (via Mooby) got the ball rolling.

Anybody remember what the cheapest price was that Amazon had the Amalur pack?

Obviously the previous Amalur sales have been with the EA published version, so we can't expect them automatically do the same sale. But whatever the price was, it's probably the low water mark for what we might be able to expect.

I believe lowest price on Amazon was $12 for the complete pack.
Edit: lowest (before coupon) price was $11.99 for Complete Bundle on 11/26/12

It may have been $10 or lower after publisher coupon in December, but I'm not sure.
