Just found out that Vanguard Princess was available on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B009SSCB7K/

Looks kind of fun!

Heads up, looks like it's freeware, but it takes jumping through some hoops to get it working (since the freeware version is Japanese). The one for sale is the same game, just made to work on English, and apparently censored in some parts (yuck!).

I'll post again if I figure out how to get the Japanese version working and/or translated.

There was a list of last year's sales and free games, and honestly, it was a wider selection, had more free games, and many games for $2-4. This year, we're lucky to get Syndicate for $5 (again).

By all reports, last year was a lot better.


Is this list posted anywhere where you or someone can quickly link it w/o searching too hard? I looked thru the first few pages in this thread and the last couple but didnt' really see it. Just curious I guess since I'm more into pc gaming this year than I was at this time last. Thanks in advance but np if it can't be found.

I did search for it but I have no idea where it went. Must be on the last thread...

Note that when the list was posted, pretty much everyone cried.

I love the only review on it, lol.

Tony, hit up eigoMANGA and get us a sale on that game!

Looks like Arcana Heart.



It seems to lack the OMG-Vertical aspect of Arcana Heart. But yeah. I tried to get the Japanese version working (and discovered how terrible Win7's multilanguage support is).

I almost bit on this during the holidays over at Gamersgate but held off for some reason. The review of the game is better there. I might just have to bite since the gameplay videos are pretty impressive:



Yeah, I almost bit on it when it first appeared on GG. GG lists SecuROM. Amazon doesn't list the DRM but one review claims it is DRM-FREE.

I've gotten Japanese programs working just fine before by changing language support and whatnot, but I just found a pre-patched version confirmed to be working on Iso Zone. I doubt it's translated, but at the very least it's a good way to see if you like the game enough to buy the English version.

Just use Google if you want it. You'll find it.

Wasn't delayed, Tony gave the wrong date initially.

Not sure why people are so excited about Syndicate. Seems pretty mediocre and it's been $5 multiple times already. People are chomping at the bit, lol.

For what it is. Syndicate is a great game IMO.
It's not the same as the original. but still a good game.

Thanks. I stumbled across a patched version of the Japanese freeware that runs without problems.

If reading Japanese isn't your strong suit, there is a wiki/guide here:

I believe his point is that Syndicate (the FPS) has been $5 multiple times before, so it's a bit strange to see the new excitement over it. I bit on it for $5 months back (mostly to see the visuals).

It's *nothing* like Syndicate (the Real-Time Tactical Bullfrog classic).

Yes, like I said it's not the same as the original. But I still think it's a great game.
I do think they should've made it like the original with hybrid elements. But EA probably told them to just make it an FPS. Shame.

Also yeah it's been 5$ before. But those people probably missed those deals i'm assuming.

last year was mostly about individual games so the EC list seemed more dynamic and it gave you a sense of having more choice.

this year seemed to be the year of the bundles and if you didn't have many of the games in the bundle, they were a steal. Still, having a few bundles makes the choice 'seem' more limited than if the bundles were broken up. imagine if 2 or 3 of those large bundles were split up - we'd have 3-4 pages of EC sales easy.

Feedback to Tony

Perhaps the 2013 EC (yeah lets start talking about that) could be a combination of two. Have a bundle but also split the games for slightly higher price than the bundle one. Similar to what's being planned for the Microsoft stuff.


Some people, including me, have been saying it for a while, bundles are great, they really are, as long as you are new to the DVG world and/or like to engage in trading or selling.

But when you have 200+ games on your backlog it starts to lose it's appeal, fast.

I second and third your suggestion, if in a pack games can be obtained @ 75% off or more, and individually @ 75-66% off it would be even more awesome.

im cool with bundles but why weren't more deals established before the month started
it only ea and thq and a couple take two games

it still baffles me how a sale can be obtained on far cry 3 while assassins creed 3 is ignored (they are made by the same fucking company)

I got back into PC gaming a couple months or so before last years sale and I feel like I have gone about this whole game acquisition process all back-asswards. I filled my backlog with individual game purchases and now there are all these great bundles that would have been a much better bang-for-the-buck reintroduction for myself.

Story of my life I tell ya.

anyone know any tricks to getting madden 08 to work? clicking the 'play' button takes me to a login screen which after giving requested information tells me 'Could not connect to the server, please try again in a few minutes.' -

I've searched Google and EA forums extensively, EA support doesn't know what's wrong and all I'm finding is that all the digital game sites are just refunding anyone who bought it?

Heads up - Don't buy the EA sports bundle, just got off the phone with both EA and Amazon and they confirmed that you can not activate (thus, play) Madden, making it a rather pointless purchase :(

Yes, that's where I activated Madden 2008 PC.
Some older EA titles activate though there.

NHL 09 PC activated directly through Origin.

Once your redemption is accepted - REFRESH your Origin client-program.
Your new games should show.

Are we talking about game-activation? Or getting MP going?

For activation:
Upon first boot-up, did you sign in at the Madden 08 activation screen w/ your EA Origin account?
I used that to get Madden 08 PC going.

For MP:
EA's Madden 08 Multiplayer servers are now offline forever. You'd have to look elsewhere to get MP going.

Interestingly it's the #1 Casual-Action game on Amazon atm, and the #9 Casual game.

Update: The GG page listing SecuROM is out of date, according to this SPUF post.

I activated all my keys yesterday, but the Stand Alone key still gave me the "already owned" message.

I enjoyed it. It's very pretty. I played it early on when the 30 FPS cap was in place, I understand that has been patched. It ran a solid 30 FPS on my old GTX 260.

It's different from the usual track or city based racers in that you're going across the country, SF, to Vegas, to Mob Town (Chicago), to ...Jersey?. This means that you never drive on the same section of track twice. Vehicle switching in a little awkward in that you have to
pull into a gas station and lose a few seconds in order to switch cars.
