You could buy a few keys (each one has a month of playtime) and use them for a while, maybe.

Still haven't heard of it going F2P.

Looks like Amazon just added Mafia II: $12.50

I wonder if Amazon just gives you a code or something since Mafia II is a Steamworks game :?


Thanks for posting. You can download through amazon or steam. I put the cd key in steam and am currently downloading w/ steam (steam downloads faster than amazon for me)

Thanks for the confirmation. That price is about right for me.

X-Blades goes up to $9 if you try to buy it. I don't think SBK X lets you buy it at all.

Call Amazon.
I had the same problem with Zombie Shooter. They fixed it (gave me a credit for the difference applied to the purchase) over the phone. Actually ended up with the game cheaper...

Should I pop on Mafia II or should I see if it will be cheaper on the steam sale?

Sweet! Thanks for reporting back.

I can also double confirm that the key provided in the download library will register on Steam.

Even if this does eventually show up as a daily deal on Steam I'm guessing it will probably be $15 or $10.

$12.50 is still a great deal if you're on the fence.

Sweet, I just got myself The Witcher Enhanced. Now to free up some space so I can play it, haha.

I tried activating this on Steam since they have the game on there, but it wouldn't work. =\ It's probably because the Steam version is the 'Enhanced Edition Directors Cut'. Boo! Would have been really nice to add it on there.

Thanks for the advice, but wound up not having to. Slept a bit, and it worked when I woke up.

X-Blades and SBK X are mine!

Yah witcher isnt a native steamworks title. Make sure you visit the official witcher site to get the latest patch and the director's cut content added in for free along with some other nice freebies.

Awesome. Just picked up Mafia II ($12.50) and activated it and am downloading it via Steam.

Grabbed Mafia II here as well. Gambling that it won't be cheaper in the Steam sale.

$12.50 for Mafia II is very tempting. Do I wait for Steam to match exceed? Hmm....

I'm frankly shocked how good amazon's sale is! Really tempted to go for King's Bounty Platinum at only $7.50, but I'd rather have it on Steam, still...

It activates via Steam no matter what, and it's very unlikely you'll see this game under $9.99. I'll eat my hat if we see it for $7.50 or the like.

Decisions, decisions.

EDIT: By the way, per other people's results in this thread, I decided to go ahead and e-mail Amazon about their pricing game on Cryostasis. It's now back @ $3.25! We'll see if they feel the same about my overcharge.

No, it cannot.

It's a GFWL game, not a Steamworks game.

Been wanted to try out The Witcher, and missed Steam, so grabbed it here. Still debating Mafia 2. Might just wait for it to go sub $20 for the Xbox 360.

BioShock 2 cannot be activated with Steam.

Mafia 2 can though. I am waiting for it to be $10 or less.

If anyone buys Star Trek Online (for $2.50, c'mon), please PM me and let me send you a referral email before you activate the game. It helps me get some cool in-game items. Thanks!


Thanks for the heads up, I can score that and refer myself for 2.50 to earn the frist teir of bounuses.
