Don't worry, it's not that good.


Actually, I'd say Homefront is awesome AND awful. It's one of those games that starts to crest with potential, shines in a few places, but for the most part falls flat on its ass. If the entire game was like the

it could have been really special. Well, assuming they got rid of all the

Tony, some of us bought the DOW Franchise Pack....
any chance we could get steam keys for dow GOLD too?


While this sounds desirable (to potentially some), I do have an uninformed question. Since the DoW Franchise pack included Dark Crusade and the THQ Mega Pack does not, would that present a problem with having (assuming it could happen) DoW Gold on Steam and Dark Crusade not? I've not played any DoW games as of yet, so I'm lacking in the first hand knowledge as to if Dark Crusade is a fully stand alone game (meaning plays on it's own and player stats would transfer from base to expansion; assuming that even happens) or if it requires the base game to play.

Totally agree! Can anyone confirm which games are definitely not Steam keys in the THQ Pack? I've heard from someone that DoW II Gold is not Steam redeemable.


i've checked all the games and I found out only COH gold is not steam redeemable

Sorry if this is not the purpose of the thread but if someone is selling a Titan Quest Gold Steam key from the THQ Pack PM me. I can PayPal or Amazon GC. Greetings :)
A great CAG gave it to me for free. Thanks!

I have DoW Gold on Steam, and DoW Gold + Dark Crusade on Amazon. While I haven't installed Dark Crusade yet, Dark Crusade is a stand alone expansion pack that doesn't need the base game installed to play. The question becomes will my Dark Crusade install recognize that I have DoW Gold and vice versa.

I posted this on the Steam trade thread, but this should help anyone if they want to organize an Amazon THQ group buy themselves...
-----
To help anyone planning to do a group buy for the Amazon THQ Pack, you should have no trouble selling MX vs. ATV Reflex and Titan Quest Gold. SR2 and Homefront should be able to be sold as well, but generally all of these are pretty low priced items due to them being THQ things (we're talking $1-$3 mostly with MX closer to $4-$5) so you won't be that far ahead. Some items can't be sold at all which makes some items sorta worthless.

That said, I am not planning to do another at this time as the time invested is high to keep a handle on about 8+ buyers due to the higher cost of the bundle ($20) and "making" money is very low so good luck for anyone planning to bother.

That said, I really wasn't that strict on the pricing and took what most people were what I called "VERY HAPPY" to pay (first offer pretty much so some did offer more later). I also didn't assume the CoH: ToV nor DoW: Gold had a Steam key since Tony said it didn't have one.

Good luck!

+1 for Capcom stuff on Amazon DVG with steam keys (SSF4, DR2, DR2:OtR, DMC4, RE5) :)

I wish Amazon DVG would do a big Capcom sale.

Though, in my case - I really don't want Steam keys for those.
ALL of those games you listed - except DMC4 - do ALWAYS require G4WL.
G4WL is more than enough for DRM. I don't want Steam on top of it. I like to keep my # of DRM's down.

Side note -> I actually have DMC4 on Steam; it only uses Steam, thank God.

errrrrrr :hot: is there any capcom deals thats going on Amazon that I dont know #-o

I wish!

Not on Amazon, currently.

On GMG - yes:

That happened a bit last year. Jump on it now before that batch of keys runs out. Gold is what you want anyway - awesome stuff.

Also, YDKJ is still $2.99... I thought the deal was through the 19th?

I have DMC4 retail, and I seem to recall the standard CD check. There's a reason I have a no-CD patch on it (I hate shuffling optical media.)

Guys Hows the port for DMC 4. is it worth buying for that price. How old is that game ??



DMC4 is great, and the port has always been top notch. The DMC3 PC port had poor performance when released (mind you it ran fine on PS2), but when I tested it a few weeks ago it was solid 60 FPS @ 1920x1200 on my Phenom II X3 @ 3.2 GHz and GTX 260. DMC4 supports 360 controllers. DMC3 supports DirectInput controllers (e.g. Logitech F310, F710, Rumblepad 2).

I dream in yellow comic sans.

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

I haven't played DMC4 but when it first went on sale at GMG, several people said it was an excellent port and well worth getting. Game is from 2008, according to GMG's page.

From what I understand (I think from this forum, in fact) DR2 and DR2:OTR are essentially the same game and if you own neither you should just get OTR. If you own DR2, it's debatable whether OTR offers anything new enough (aside from no time limits) to warrant its purchase.

But maybe it's me, I'm not a fan of story driven fps.

Yeah, It's not worth it if you already have the original (especially on pc where you can stop the time with a trainer and that's it) here's a list of changes (from wikipedia):
