GoGamer Madness (9/19) - Alone in the Dark $10

Well I'm playing through AitD right now. I'd say <20-25ish would be a fair price for it. At first it was very frustrating and everything felt awkward as hell. I've also hit some spots with unforgiving checkpoints and unexplained deaths graphic glitches etc.

I've worked through them and have gotten pretty good at the controls, the glitches don't seem to be so bad now either. I think it's more of an initial impression type thing.

Overall it feels like an unfinished game, like it needs more polish/ bugtesting. Like it was rushed. But it has also really sucked me in, and is starting to feel like a great game. I'd say $10 is definetly worth it. Give it a try and stick through a couple of chapters, if anything its an obtainable 1000 gamerscore.

I purchased the controller for about $8 less during the previous gogamer sale. Do they have any sort of policy for that sort of thing or am I out of luck?



I really hope there's a typo there somewhere. You'd like to pay the extra $8?

ok i got Alone in the Dark. I was excited about the game before launch but all the control issues that people talked about hindered me. but $10 is a cheap enough price for almost anything! haha. here's to hoping they patch it with the PS3 changes

Another in for Alone in the Dark. For me I will at least play a few hours in to see what it is like and then play it again wen/if the patch is released to appreciate the changes.

Yes got Alone in the Dark, I would say this is a fair price for a very poorly developed game. I played the demo and the controls were horrible.

I played the demo too and could not keep myself from constantly catching fire. Oh well, at least they let you skip parts in the full version.

I couldn't even resist the price of Alone in the Dark, especially if the patch works out good.
In for one.

It's just that simple.

Wow, I actually was able to get a copy of AOD before it sold it. I'm always late to the party with these sales.

Now, where's that patch... :)

Does amazon pricematch Go Gamer? I'll pick up AITD with Prime if they do.

Amazon.com won't match other website prices. Been there, done that.

I'm in the same shitty boat with you, and I swear, if they wont refund the money,
I WILL NEVER BE BUYING FROM THEM AGAIN.

I got 2 copies of the AitD for the 360 + $3.xx shipping. I've read mixed reviews about the glitchiness but it looks easy. I'll easily sell one copy for $20 and end up with a free game in the end so I can't really complain. :)

Yep, in for 1 AITD 360. The OG PC game was the first software i was able to complete beginning to end. Good times. Worried about the bad reviews, but by the time I get to it, It might be patched anyway.
