Game is pretty good. Worth the $20 if you like action RPGs

Nice catch I've been watching for it to hit $20 on Amazon but was traveling for work so glad I noticed the post!

I'm still gonna wait for lower and x my fingers it shows up in a future Gamefly sale for 12 bucks or less. If that doesn't happen, so be it. Have to be strict to my limits or else I spend too much.

Would have preferred getting from Best Buy when it was $10, but worried it might sell out before dropping in price so picked it up for $20.

If you enjoy open world RPGs, buy this game. Now. The Dead Kel DLC is great too.

Hmmm I'd like to pick this up but I hate paying $20 for a game that is going straight to the backlog. I guess I'm going to roll with the dice and wait it out.

In for one, sad part is:

Sold by Amazon.com
Usually ships within 11 to 14 days.

Edit: By the way, just noticed that it says that $19.99 is the new MSRP, so technically this isn't really a sale or promotion.

360 version is still $40 MSRP, the PS3 one now has a MSRP of $30. GS sells the 360 version for $40 used and the PS3 version for $28 used.

Edit: Didn't see the Target drop. Interesting. Wonder if Gamestop will keep their price at $40?

I wish they had released some of the preorder content online. When I first bought this game, I sold my Dowsing Rod for 52 bones thinking it would eventually be released for download.

i really liked the gameplay in this game... maybe a little repetitive but fun, you tend to level up quick tho and can level yourself past a whole area. But fun game over all. Definitely good at 20$.

70 hours in trying to platinum and I hit a game breaking bug. I was in an instance where the only way to get out was to kill a Boss...who never spawned. This is the game that taught me the importance of multiple saves.

This has been on my list for a while now and it finally hit $20 on Amazon so it's a must buy for me.

19.99 in store at Target too. looks like it might be a universal drop?


Are you sure? Shows $29.99 online, but I'd rather get it local than wait for Amazon.

I still haven't progressed past the initial half-hour of the game/tutorial level. I'll get around to it eventually.

Anybody think this game will go up in value cause of the studio going under? Debating picking up 2 copies, 1 to play and 1 to keep sealed.

I've been waiting for this game to hit 10$ mark...but is it really not going to be made anymore?

Might need to get it at 20$ if that is the case

KoA:R is like the ME franchise for me; not really in the mood to play it but once I start playing it, I get sucked in. For some weird reason, this game just clicks for me. Love the quests and the side quests (all fully voiced by the way), love smithing all my own armor to makes some ridiculous, over-the-top armor that is better than most high level drops, music is beautiful, environments look like World of Warcraft during the Burning Crusades era (stopped playing WoW during that time so that's what I compare them to).

It's not one of the "best made" games out there but it's fun! Really, really fun.

And I re-bought it just because:
(1) I stopped playing because I wanted to play other games at the time
(2) lent it to my brother (also an ex-WoW player) and I haven't seen it in months so I have to consider the fact that I'm not getting it back
(3) it's only $20 so I'll let him keep that copy and I'll have this one for myself

I've wondered about this. Does EA just get to keep all of the profits for this game now, since there's no one at 38 Studios to write a check to? Or did 38 already have whatever their cut was going to be by the time the copies were on the shelves?


I imagine it works like all companies. Retailers pay for it up front, and what doesn't sell to their cost, they send back for credit.

The rights to the IP are in limbo b/c they defaulted to the state of Rhode Island that wants a ton of money for them and nobody is paying.

Except for still sealed copies you will not see anymore being printed unless something drastic happens. I see this being a game like MvC 2 on PS2 that sells for $40 used at places like Gamestop long after the next gen starts, at least on console.

Just picked this up on sale for PC not too long ago for like $10 it goes on sale on Origin once in awhile and Amazon for PC (with all the DLC for around $10) but I'm still tempted to get it on Xbox.

A few people here had it in there trade list and I offered around $25 for it and none took it guess they should have heh.

Heh, this is a pretty accurate description. Still, this game was loads of fun for the first 20 hours or so, then got a little tedious. Easily worth $20 and a playthrough, though.



Yep definitely worth it, bought it at launch. And didn't regret it at all. Best combat of 2012 for sure despite the story elements being mediocre. I listened to podcasts while just having a blast killing stuff. Finesse/Sorcery FTW <3

That was my character as well. Used the female dark elf type creature. Most fun stealth mechanics or any game I've played (not started Mark of the Ninja yet) and any fan of Xena will love the chakrams from the sorcery tree.

The only reason I stopped playing this is because I max leveled and beat the game, otherwise I'd still have it. But with bonuses it was worth a nice dime at Gamestop.

Great game.

Yeah it's sucks we have to wait this long. I'm not in any hurry though. Still playing Tales of Grace f and I might jump into Spec Ops: The Line afterwards.

Debating on trying to PM at bestbuy since I have a 10$ cert. how do you price match at bB with Target if they are sold out online and it says (29.99) when it's 19.99 in store
