Which is the original deal you bought in for. No reason to be that mad. You got what you were promised.

This current two for the price of one thing feels like it's exploiting an unintended loophole.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

I get the feeling this is going to get patched close to remove this loophole soon...just can't see them allowing people to pick up say 4 copies during the holidays when it's 12.50 or so.

Amazon could've done it better. Bioshock Infinite Pre-order + XCOM EU bundle, and when Bioshock Infinite got released, XCOM key would appear in library.

Maybe the System doesn't work that way but it still looks a better option.

Or they could have had the 49.99 gc expire the day before this sale started instead of next year. I'm sure the downside would have been the customer support calls from everyone that didn't redeem in time.

Or make a special xcom product page that never changes from 49.99 with the promo only linked to that product page.

Thanks for the info. They sound like give or take features for me, anyways.

I imagine I can just flip to 30 FPS if I get stuck, get some help, then go back to 60 FPS solo when I'm past the boss/es.

That's kinda why DSfix has a toggle to 30fps button mapped. (There are supposedly issues with sloping ground and jumping at 60 fps.)

The X Com credit does that work on the dlc or does it come out of the 2k credit.

Victory is not about winning battles, its about how long it takes for the person beating you to give up.

I've beaten them all alone. O&S were a bigger problem, because I wanted to kill Ornstein last and the only upgraded weapon I had was Zaphander. I defeated Manus in the first try (without Silver Pendant and Sif). Kalameet was pain, because I wanted to get the Obsidian Greatsword, but still nowhere near impossible.

I recently have beaten Super Hexagon at hardestestest difficulty, so maybe I'm spoiled.

As much as I suck as Dark Souls: PTD, reaching DLC stuff might not happen until Dark Souls 3 gets released.... ;)

I can confirm this, I bought 2 myself and still have my 2K credit


To add to this, I did it as well. On the order page, it lists the breakdown of promo credits. one shows 24.98 and the other lists 0.01

Why? DSFix @60 FPS can be used online. You can technically be banned for it I guess but I haven't heard of anyone that has been. That would require them supporting their port.

Amazon never matches Steam dailies, do they? I never had a game I wanted go on sale to ask for a price match.

Though seeing as how Amazon won't even pm a weekly, I guess it isn't possible.

no disrespect but i really find it hard to believe you beat manus 1st try without knowing his attack patterns unless you were wildly overleveled.... i beat him alone on NG++ but it took some doing

What's weirdest is that 29.99 is the price the game has been hovering around in the last few weeks, in several other etailers, even on Origin itself.

How, why or who thought in setting this prices, no idea, maybe it's just that Amazon is no longer interested in price matching wars.

That's weird since there was never a time where Xcom wasn't part of the promo. I've had this issue with amazon before where they couldn't find the expired promo. CS needs to keep a better history of the deals.

Tony,
Not directly deal related, but related to PCDD. I pre-ordered BF4, and it took some of my gift card balance to pay for it. I couldn't figure out how to not use my gift card balance, nor could I figure out how to use additional gift cards if I get more later. I know they seem like opposites, but is either of these things possible?
Thanks.

Read a little further and Tony mentions dragons; it was almost definitely Bethesda. Plus, Microsoft had already jumped on board by that point.
