For all the people sitting on the fence about this deal because they can't figure out filler to meet the free S&H qualifications, what about the free one month trial of the Amazon Prime Shopper thing? As I was ordering my copies, they offered it to me...just a thought.


I actually used that a few months back for a college text book I needed in a hurry. I cant believe I am having trouble finding something to add for $10.01. I though about Virtua Fighter 5 for $15, but I dont want that game at all.

I kind of wish I waited, so that I could add VF5 today. Oh well.

Jumping on this deal yesterday, I went with The Dark Knight DVD which I was going to buy anyways.

For $12.96 there's God of War 2 or F.E.A.R. Director's Edition. For less there's...less.

EDIT: Duh, posted before thinking. Or you could go for multiple cheap items. Like 6 copies of Shattered Suns @ $1.96 each!


nice site

I finally broke down and picked up Virtua Fighter 5 with this. Ill probably just try and sell Virtua Fighter, see if I can get my money back on it.

I've been waiting and waiting on Orange Box. No idea why, although the Team Fortress 2 lag concerns may have had something to do with it. But I need to play Portal eventually and now that it's the same price as the XBLA version, no reason to pass it up now.

Oh well, played Half-Life on PC, played HL2 on Xbox 1, and picked this up with The Dark Knight for $14.99 for the free shipping. Guess I can play the episodes, portal and TF2.

Portal alone is worth 15 dollars :)

Pretty good site especially for avoiding shipping costs on the $24.99 items (I wish those would count for free shipping). The prices on some of the items listed there are inaccurate (told me $0.49 but when I clicked it was $3) but eventually found something for $0.80. Good for future reference. Thanks.

This. Even though It's $10 for the PC now.
Portal, while being ultra short, was GOTY contender IMHO during it's release.

You also get previous GOTY Half-Life 2 and It's two "Episodes".

Team Fortress is great even though it only has like 6 maps. I've been playing it non-stop since buying TOB at $20, but for $15 I would kill anyone that is on the fence about buying TOB.

I'd say the only people that won't buy this are one of the following.

1) Hate FPS - Even though Portal is far from that.
2) Want it on PC/PS3.
3) Believe the Cake is a lie.

This is also $15 at TRU.com. According to the page, it also qualifies for the buy one $20 game, get another 50% off.

I have free shipping w/ Amazon (Prime), wonder how much shipping would be at TRU? Guess it comes down to whether there is another $20 game I can find at TRU...

I put off buying this one for whatever reason (not being familiar with the series, didn't wanna spend the money, too many games backlogged), but I simply cannot pass this up now...add one more to the backlog! (Although I think I'll have to move this one up in my priority of games to play). Had to do some Christmas shopping anyways, so threw this in the cart as well. Thanks OP!

Portal, while being ultra short


Its play time isnt really an issue since its not a full priced game but an inclusion in a package. Its not like its a Heavenly Sword of Quantum of Solace giving you only 4-6 hours of gameplay.

I know, maybe you should learn "How to read posts 101 for Dummies". Works quite well I heard.


Or he could just be a tool...

...Calling Monsta Mack a tool here.

Ordered a pair for two friends who I can hopefully recruit to play some TF2. Awesome!

some reason my comment inspired you two to act like asses? :roll:

apparently saying in agreement that Portals play time is a non-issue nor is it like a short single player game results in me being a "dummy" and a "tool".

Yes you two will go far in life im sure.

You didn't say you were in agreement. Instead you cut off the quote and restated what he said, making it appear like you were correcting him with his own words.
In conclusion, you win the internet.

Also, anyone who needs a book throw-in to get the free shipping should pick up Infinite Jest, because David Foster Wallace is the best writer who has ever lived, and IJ is his finest work. I WILL get more people to read it. 8-)
[I would jump on this deal and throw in a book myself if I didn't already own HL2 and Portal and prefer the games on PC ...]

I also note, with some irony, that this is now just as much as Portal: Still Alive costs to download by itself.


Yeah and you have the freedom to lend it out to your friends, re-sell it and all other physical media goodness.

The DLC revolution will be the end of everything. Trust me.

But this truly is a great compilation of games. I remember how difficult it was to obtain from asian import shops when released. Now they shove it down your throat for almost nothing. If you haven't played this - BUY NOW!

I actually meant that the other guy was being a tool. Your reply contributed way more to the topic than his did (although Sam1111's reply is correct too). Sorry for being unclear.

... Not with the way companies are capping bandwidth usage.

On topic, if the 360 version allowed KB+M, then I would be all over this deal.
