Pixel junk package too expensive for what it is. I understand that these are ports of the console games from 2-3+ years ago right?

 

Ill wait for a better package deal in the future....

Why are there keys for something that is free in the Steam store already?  o.o

Not knowing how long it will be free, I've stocked up on extras in case any cags miss out.

Hey Tony,

 

I know it's a longshot... Any chance Amazon will price match GGG's FC3:BD, Gunslinger, I Am Alive bundle?

Amazon doesn't price match international sites.  And are you sure you want to deal with Tages anyway?

FYI for those wondering about Payday 2, I think we're matching that shortly but we'll have it for significantly less around Thanksgiving ($9.79 single, $29.99 4 pack.

Cheers,

As far as I'm aware, the digital version is only available in Steam and Tages DRM structures.  The physical copies were/are available as DRM Free, however.

That's part of the appeal of DS isn't it?  So hard you'll die.  So hard you'll have to figure out a way to even play it once GFWL shuts down.

I guess you could say he should prepare [for GFWL] to die  8-)

Commence Fall key cleanout >>>

 

So I've got some keys to get rid of, but wanted to do things a bit differently, so PM me the answer to this riddle along with the game you'd like from the following:

 

King's Bounty: Warriors of the North - Valhalla Edition

Call of Juarez

Legends of Dawn

Project Night (Desura)

 

Criteria: must have at least 50 posts/likes.

 

Here goes:

Mice are famous for their ability to multiply at breakneck speeds. The type of mouse we have here gives birth once a month, birthing 12 babies each time. Baby mice mature and can give birth two months after they are born.

You picked up one of these darling baby mice at the pet shop and brought it home the day after it was born. In 10 months from now, how many mice will you have?

 

Monkeys use google to solve their problems; don't be a monkey!

Hey Tony.  Any chance of just Blood Dragon for around $5 or so?  That's one I would snag a uPlay code for as my Steam copy is a buggy PoS which crashes immediately after launching it.  There's a fair number of us on the Steam forums for both this and FC3 with the same issue, but have no issues playing the direct uPlay copy.  Fair warning to anyone looking at this. 

 

And people wonder why I don't like multiple DRM's on Steam-versions...

 

EDIT:

I'd also guess UbiSoft Q/A Dept. would probably do a better job & more thorough job of play-testing & bug-testing their very own UPlay-version as opposed to the Steam-version. 

 

We've seen Non-Steam versions of games have less issues than Steam-versions before - especially since who knows if they took into account any of the other things Steam does - it could be actual RAM-hogging; Steam overlay; Friends List; and/or other things that are getting in the way of UPlay itself!

 

Have you tried disabling and of them Steam-features when playing FC3 and/or FC3:BD via Steam? 

To get Vampire: Bloodlines Steam-version working properly, one of the things you had to do was disable a lot of the Steam-community features.

I do wonder if that would help here - I truly don't know, as I don't even own FC3/FC3:BD at all anywhere even.

Yep - b/c DRM has a history of burning legit gamers like us that drop money on products. Yet, in many instances - the pirated-version has no DRM and works perfect. It's bloody pathetic and ridiculous - and a very good way to kill the used-games market (especially w/ binding keys to accounts; and install limits bullcrap).

 

Look at StarForce, Tages, SecuRom, and other garbage styles/types of DRM - and you'll see many times, it's the DRM getting in the actual way of the game working at all or even properly, for whatever the stupidest reason is.  

 

Some DRM like StarForce (disc-version DRM) - that was known to shatter discs literally; ruins actual disc-drives; cause OS instabilities; and other nonsense - b/c that DRM was so uptight and b/c of the way it tried to manipulate everything w/ its garbage OS-specific drivers it installed.

 

It's freaking ridiculous.

Or if they think steam is causing the problem just launch it out of uplay....since it activates over there and once it's in uplay steam isn't required

I don't own farcry 3 so I don't know if you can do that....but I'm pretty sure you can.....since I can do that with my other steam games that require uplay

I actually have 2 versions of POP: TFS - Uplay only and Steam-version. I wish they were labeled. :P Would make it easier if it said (Steam) just for the Steam one.

 

It's been a while and all and I don't know if they changed thing - but IIRC, POP: TFS Steam-version - once you do the download via Steam and you activate that in UPlay and run that from UPlay, it will STILL force a Steam-boot up!

 

I have a Non-Steam version of POP:TFS from that GameStar promo.

 

EDIT:

Is there a work-around of some kind w/ Steam-version to not force Steam to boot?

Or did they change things?

What games are you directly speaking of?

I'd love to give this a whirl/test, if I have any UPlay games that do this! I have pretty good DL speeds over here IMHO normally ( around 5-7mb per sec).
