While that is a good example, what ties any of these bundles together is their publisher. I could be wrong, but I think both Lego LotR and WitN are WB games, so it's possible for those two.


They are. I did my homework before I made a wish upon a Tony.

There were multiple posts in this thread (apart from mine). Hand wringing (apart from just mine). Talk of how Hell expanded to add a new level just for Sims DLC. It has hit this price a few times.


Speaking of, I held off (it looks like so much fun) on Sims 3, from Amazon and Steam, simply because of the whopping amount of DLC and the Origin/Steam split. I'm holding off for a bundle with all the DLC that's just on one platform.

A Sims 3 bundle with all the DLC....


Please? ;D

'Cause I totally would buy that.

IIRC there was Sims + (some?) DLC bundle for $40-50 (on Amazon?) a few months back that some CAGs were excited about. For me, I'm unwilling to take the risk that I won't like at that price.

I have the base Sims 3 bundle but just don't see myself spending $10 on each non-"stuff" DLC... since there are multiple ones I want to buy. It was tough holding out during this sale but I'd rather wait it out. Chances are it'll eventually drop more in price before more DLC launches this year and we start getting more info on Sims 4.

The trailers, reviews, and experience with the franchise would be enough for me to take the plunge at that price considering the steep discount.

I will have two to four coupons left after the Microsoft Indie Bundle. I am willing to use them on whatever and trade if anyone is interested.

Thanks for running the 2K bundles again Tony. I am addicted to Civilization V now and have to convince everyone I know to buy a copy. This should make it easier!

Well, Vigil is dead from the sound of this post from their now-ex Lead Combat Designer. The two or three people who haven't grabbed Darksiders in the myriad sales that were run over the past couple of months had better grab it now. No guarantee it will be available for sale in the coming days via DD, never mind a sale of any kind.

I always wonder if the developers themselves can buy out the IP and do a kickstarter or something instead. Of course, this assumes they have the cash or assets on hand to make it happen and like any company, having multiple "partners" can be a big drag rather than 1 person doing the deal and at least owning the IP all for themselves so at least they can control their own destiny.

With no game in late stage development, you'd assume it won't be an insane price (compared to CoH2, etc...), but as worker bees, it's probably hard to have that much free cash sitting around at most of the worker's level.

Being self employed now and having been laid off before in the past, I think most self employed people or business owners here can probably attest to "liking" that control vs. the unknowns and lack of control of your own destiny (like how the THQ boss originally made it sound like they will be ok and it's just a change of ownership, etc...). I'm sure there's going to be at least 1 person in this which it doesn't end well for with so many studios closing lately.

I'm kinda surprised that the THQ pack is still available for purchase. I would have thought that Tony would have received the call from one of the new owners to take it down already.

How do you check if you have any "coupons"????? I have $9.06 in "promo credit" when I check mo3 credit (under digital downloads) but no specifics on when expires etc.

Is the $4.99 just for the publisher deals?

Actually that didn't help me much since I bought some Prototype bundles and didn't get emails for them, plus some emails are threaded. I contacted CS 2 hours ago and they sent me an email stating this:

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us at Amazon.com.

I've checked your account and confirm that you've fourteen $5 promotion credit (5*14=$70) for game downloads

Hurrah! The Sims 3 is back up to $30 (from $7.50). I managed to make it through that sale with my purity intact :lol: If EC applied, I'd be screwed.


Sims 3 does happen to be on sale for $7.49 on GameFly, however.

I'd guess somewhere around Sunday 12AM-1AM Pacific (they're usually not exactly on 12AM, unlike some other stores.)

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. :)

That does raise the question that if Steam is waiting on more keys, and Microsoft is waiting on more keys... who is generating those keys? Santa's Elves?

Microsoft is waiting on Steam keys from Valve for the Amazon offer, and Valve is waiting on GFWL keys for Fable from MIcrosoft.

I had forgotten about this. Now, the question is whether this is worth it to me..... Don't play often, but I would like to be able to play with what I want to play with when I do and not have to worry about levelling up to it. Hmmmmm

I have to say that I'm fairly biased against unlock-type DLC/cheats/codes/etc. Though I can understand the want to have it if you're not a regular to said game. However, I kinda feel that with BF3, it's more of a preference thing when it comes to weapons. EA has done a lot of balancing with the game and I've seen people just as successful with the starting or early unlocks as people who have over 1000 hours in the game. The only thing that was really overpowered the last time I played (which has been a while) was the frag rounds on the USAS-12 and I know they have been a bit nerfed since.

I think you just answered your own question there bud. It's a shortcut designed for people that don't have the time/don't want to spend the time to unlock everything. If you don't play often you're going to be spending a while leveling stuff compared to those that play often.
