Join the club, its so cheap to build a rig, and you can do a lot of things besides gaming on a good rig.


Like HD porn at 60 fps duh. 8-)

But seriously he's right lol. I switched almost all my gaming to pc over the last year. Only playing coop games with console friends on my ps3 and xbox now.

Just make sure to tell all of us what you decided to do.
Did you pre-order this game at $60?

Just want to show for the record.

Let's put our money where our mouth is! ;)


I'm renting, so like... 4 or 5 dollars? I win!

I'd certainly like to hear what you did to get one for $36. That's the pure price, not "...I had a giftcard to use" or "I can flip this credit to cash", correct?

$36 was easy since that was the GamersGate price with the 20% discount some people have. They've since changed it to a credit (blue coins) from a straight discount though.

IGN just confirmed it looks much much better on :pc:. So if you care about this, you might look up their separate PC version review.

Cheapassgamer or not, I'm going to support the awesome people at Irrational and Ken Levine so this will be a day one purchase for me. I want to see more of these types of games made.

The 36 dollars at Gamersgate was clearly an exploit of their system that also relied on pretty extreme circumstances so I can't imagine why anyone is holding that up as a normal reflection of the game's price.

Any "reputable" key site.
I'm pretty sure CDKeysDiscount has it for $35 right now.
Since there is no pre-order game incentive, I'm happy to wait.

If you are "renting" it on the PC, I my do the same until it hits the price I want. ;)
I just got Crysis 3 so I am in no hurry.

Oh, and I am aware I used shovelware incorrectly, it just seems they are "shovelling" their inventory to get everyone to buy, day one at full retail.
It's actually a very good strategy.

In all honesty this deal really comes down to if you want or have any of the other free games. I have Bioshock 1 already so no good for me. Already have most of the other free choices as well. So again no good for me.

The credit is nice but I like the Amazon one better. You get Bioshock Infinite, Xcom: EU, and then $30 for any 2K game on your amazon account for the next year. So to me that is the better deal. I am literally getting both games for $15 a piece. And I don't own either at the moment.

Again it all comes down to what you already own here.

I ordered it and it charged my card but I have received no confirmation email and also can't view my games. I know they disabled that but I would at least like confirmation since it does say on the site that I own that package already even though I haven't received any emails.

For GMG it should be when the game launches. So the 26th. That is the normal anyway. Amazon users got their's already so GMG may give it sooner.

You mean they disabled the ability to see your games?

Edit: Ok yeah they did disable the games/keys temporarily as it was effecting their ability to get out the Bioshock Infinite steam keys. Lame. Well hope I get my key soon then.

Guy just look around there are tons of Bioshock Infinite keys for $15-20 from AMD Reloaded bundle.
Just check steamtrades lots of people selling AMD Reloaded Keys for dirt cheap.

I would say buying any new PC games at $60 is revok worthy.
How do all those that bought Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, Hitman Absolution, and Tomb Raider for $60 feel today???

Again, for what is out there, this is a good deal. As long as you know price drops are inevitable.


I learned a long time ago to not buy something unless I was okay with the price, and that once I had made the decision to stop worrying about possible better deals in the future. There is always another price drop. You will wait, skip release, think you have found an amazing deal a couple months later, and then the very next week a new deal beats the one you got. Very rarely I will decide I am excited enough for something to pay full price. If it isn't that important to me, I wait both for a deal, and for a time when I actually will play the thing. Sleeping Dogs for example has had progressively better sales, but I keep passing on them all because I have no time for it.

Great deal. $46 with the the $14 cashback. Plus I was planning to buy XCOM whenever it hit $10, so I sort of see it as getting Bioshock for $36, which is more than a fair price for something I wanted to play Day 1.

I apologize if it comes across saying it was not a deal worthy post.
It is.
I'm just amazed at the sudden promotions where they want you to buy the game at retail so they try to sweeten the pot with bargain games.

Who paid $60 for Tomb Raider? It has a MSRP of $49.99 on PC. Pre-orders lowered it to $44. I bought it day one, and you know what, I feel pretty damn good. It was a damn good game and the devs deserved every penny I spent on it.

Exactly how I feel.

Do we know if people who already pre-ordered it before this will also get X-COM? I can't find a confirmation of this anywhere. I really hope so. Also, I hope GMG isn't late in getting me my key as I'm told they sometimes are.

Not totally sure why people who were going to buy TR and BSI didn't just buy an AMD Reloaded code off eBay... $22.50 a piece, folks.

You might have gotten that price but a lot of cards were going (or even starting) for well over that price. Not everyone feels like spending days playing the eBay sniping game, waiting to snag a card for under $50.

Or people just don't feel confident that they won't get screwed over on the code and don't feel like hassling it out with eBay if they do. They would rather deal directly with an authorized retailer.

This is coming from someone who did buy an AMD card off eBay but it seems pretty obvious to me why not everyone would.

Or, heck, maybe they just wanted access to the pre-launch mini games that both TR and B:I have/had or the extra digital tchotchkes like the TR art book.

Same here this morning. Got the bundle w/M2, paypal went through, then about a minute later said I had been issued a full refund. I opened a support ticket to make sure my account doesn't get jacked up like some others have been saying where GMG now thinks you own games that you don't. I was planning on adding the BL2 stuff with the credit while it's on sale this weekend, but they're going to have to get sorted out first. The site's still not working, so I guess we broke GMG. :roll:

All these deals and none of them apply for me. Why do I want credit for games I already have (amazon) or games I already have (GMG). Guess I'll wait for Bioshock Infinite to drop in price. I want to play it, but not $60 play it.

GMG's cash-back option would make it the most solid choice if the extra games don't interest you.

Or go for someone selling an AMD code or just wait.

Well your price is only almost accurate, if you want to buy both bundled together. Even then your estimate may be a few dollars too low at this point.

Having said that, you can buy Bioshock currently for $30 which is a better deal than this imo. One I would have went with had I known about it. Maybe I actually would have received my key by now had I gone with ebay.

Well in reality anything extra is a bonus. Not everyone has all the games plus you can use the 15 on anyone game they have. So I know it can be a bummer but to some what a deal and I am happy for anybody giving anything extra away.
