Maybe EA Told crytek to buy it coz of these all negativity feedback going on for EA ;)


As has been stated, Crytek was already developing Homefront 2.

Like people owning more ZeniMax games than they're probably aware of.


We need Tony to get Zenimax (parent company of Arkane Studios, Bethesda Softworks, and Id Software) on-board w/ Amazon DVG. ;)

For anyone who wants to reveal all the keys on the game keys on their Amazon library page, this should work if you run it via the web console (Ctrl+Shift+K in Firefox):

(function(){jQuery("form[action='https://www.amazon.com/gp/swvgdtt/your-account/manage-downloads/features/view-key.html']").each(function(){var   f=jQuery(this);jQuery.post(f.attr("action"),f.serialize());});window.setTimeout(window.location.reload,5000);})();

clearly you need to get rid of all your THQ items.
I recommend making every game free after coupon.

Then the same for Atari so we don't get into this mess then too.

Sega makes sense as the purchaser of Relic. Creative Assembly (the Total War developers) just acquired a license to make some Warhammer games; with the acquisition of Relic, Sega will now have a monopoly on Warhammer gaming IP.

And with that monopoly, maybe Relic won't feel as pressured to keep pumping out Warhammer titles. Maybe they can work on some other IP they own (more Homeworld, please!)

The Homefront 2 article was updated hours ago to mention Crytek purchasing the rights.

Keep in mind, the Crytek UK division (formerly Free Radical Design - AKA the Timesplitters development company) was already rumored to be working on Homefront 2...


Ah, that makes a bit more sense then.

What the hell? Darksiders would have been a much better buy than Homefront.


But Crytek wasn't already working on Darksiders. They WERE already developing a Homefront sequel for THQ. That's why they bought it. They were already making the game. This is basically a cost and time saver such that they don't have to go back and eliminate all references to anything related to Homefront as an IP.

They bought Homefront for a minuscule amount compared to the other auctions. I bet they'll save a lot of money doing it this way, too, because otherwise they'd either 1) stop making the game and lose all the money they spent developing it or 2) rename, change the scenario, rejigger everything, and spend a lot of time removing all connection to Homefront. Considering Homefront sold reasonably well, there may well be an audience for a properly marketed Homefront sequel done well.

All Crytek needs to do now is continue work on the game and shop it around to EA Partners (like Crysis) or the Activision equivalent. Hell, they might even self-publish. Hard to say.

So, it appears that Greenmangaming cares about orphans and wants to see the SlimJim beating massacre stopped. From this day on, Amazon and Tony condone orphans being beat by SlimJims, let it be known to all!

I'm telling you, I NEED to know that these bundles will happen. I already own most of the games in question, but deals like this, shit... I must HAVE!!!


I just heard back from Microsoft. Some things have changed.

18 Months!? It feels like years Tony. :D Were you in a different position prior to that time or not at Amazon at all?


I wasn't at Amazon. I worked at Nintendo before Amazon:

www.linkedin.com/in/anthonyvalcarcel/

Hmmm, just remembered I have a pending pre-order for South Park. I used the $5 THQ pre order credit from like months ago. Will my order just be cancelled and I'll have to wait until it gets relisted under Ubisoft?

I would assume so especially since my pre order was for a Steamworks version. Not sure what Ubisoft is planning to do with it.


Can't help you with how the pre-order is gonna be handled, but the speculation over on NeoGAF is that it's too late for them to change South Park over to a Uplay game and that it will probably remain a steamworks title. Of course they could be wrong, but I kinda agree with that thought. The game is basically done at this point.

EDIT: Yeah, and there's what Corpekata said too.


I'm in the same situation there, I'm just hoping Ubisoft will leave it alone and release it as a Steamworks title but that seems unlikely. Only time will tell I suppose, I would like to keep the pre order if it remains a Steamworks title.


Currently we have no plans to pull down the THQ pre-orders or cancel your orders since no money has been exchanged yet. If this changes I'll let you know but it is our hope to simply maintain the orders and work with the new owners...all of whom we have relationships with.

Argh... I need a repeat sales of Dawn of war pack.:cry:

THQ mega pack ISNT FULL PACk how the heck I wanna buy it? and I own half of them. lol


Sorry I should have been more explicit. The THQ Mega Pack is VERY LIKELY the last promotion we will run with THQ.

Tony

You missed my post,

The month is winding down, so I have to ask yet again:

Tony, will there be any Assassin's Creed, Dead Space, Vanguard Princess, or Blade Kitten sales before the month is over?

Thank you. ;)


($10 for TSW is an awesome deal.)

Hey there,

Sorry I missed this, thanks for the PM. I haven't heard back on any of the deals you are asking about above.

no
that was SUPER ominous

i mean $10 pre-coupon for all those great games is an absurd price

my guess is its $15 pre-coupon now
