Anywhere you get KOA now will be Origin, only way to get it on Steam is to buy it on Steam. Since they were self published probably never gonna be another sale for it again on Steam.

Today's deals:
Tony mentioned awhile ago that KoA was going to have a deal in November with the game + DLC for $12. Not sure if that is still happening but something to keep in mind as the DLC is fairly decent.

Kingdoms of Amalur - Reckoning $8 with voucher code GMG20-1FYLZ-EDG8R, requires Origin
Tiny & Big: Grandpa's Leftovers $4 (Steamworks) with voucher code GMG20-1FYLZ-EDG8R

Yeah, it's not worth it without them selling the DLC or the complete pack with the DLC included.

The Amalur DLC hardly ever goes on sale by itself. I've only seen it on sale twice, once at Gamersgate and once at Amazon and even then it was only half off so you are looking at another $10 just for the DLC.

If they would have sold the full complete pack that includes the DLC and then did 75% off and another 20% on coupon it would have been totally worth it, but not this.

As for Tiny and Big, I passed on the Indie Fort because of no Steam keys but I still can't bring myself to pay $4 for Steam Tiny and Big when I know it was dirt cheap in an indie bundle previously. :-P

Are Hitman keys being issued yet? The preload has started.

Hmm, looks like they are not. I'm gonna wait to purchase cause usually with GMG you get your key faster if you order after they start issuing em.

Wow, that KoA deal is amazing. Is the dlc really any good/worth 4 extra bucks? Cause if not, I'm definitely jumping on this.

I've heard the DLC is pretty good, especially the Dead Kel one. So for $4 more to get the complete game and that deal is coming this Thursday or Friday I think so I would say it is worth the wait.

The DLC is pretty well done and is north of 4 hours for each pack. I enjoyed the DLC more than the random sidequest shit in the main game so I would say it is worth the $4 since you have to use garbage Origin either way.

Thanks for the opinions, I'll wait for the Amazon deal. As for Origin, well, I guess in my opinion all the free games EA gave out somewhat makes up for the overall stupidity of it.

I thinnk it's worth noting that Tomb Raider is $36 after 20% promo code GMG20-1FYLZ-EDG8R stacking with 10% off for pre-order up on Green Man Gaming now. We might see a 25% off code, but I just went ahead and pre-ordered since it's a great deal.

You can get Tomb Raider via regional pricing for as low as umm... I think it was like $26 or 28. Russian price, but region free game.

Sent in a support ticket to cancel my $30 Hitman Absolutiuon pre-purchase after seeing this review: http://www.pcgamer.c...olution-review/.
Hopefully, this works and I'll then pick up the game when it's around $10 or so. Very disappointed since Blood Money is one of my all-time favourites.

Reviews seem to be all over the place for this game. Anyway, I'm going to keep mine especially since it ended up costing me under $20 after my XCOM credit.

I've read tons of user impressions/complaints and some of the reviews, my take on the situation matches this quote from a review (I think it was Edge review)

Hitman: Absolution is a slick, responsive and mechanically confident game - and on occasions it's one of the most satisfying stealth games in a year that already includes Dishonored - but a range of compromises to Hitman tradition mean it's still going to rub some people up the wrong way.


I've never played a Hitman game, I tried the Blood Money demo but I found it really awkward and unintuitive. Almost everything about Absolution sounds great to me aside from the questionable checkpoint system, so I'm gonna buy it considering the cheap price of $29.

I'm not paying all that much attention to the overall score or even the glitches described in review, but rather some of the points that were made about gameplay shifting it's focus.
Just mentions of linear gameplay and smaller environments in a Hitman game make me not want to blindly pre-order but wait instead and make a more informed purchase decision.

All the reviews are out and there is a whole lot of user feedback as well, plus youtube gameplay. You can get started on making your informed decision now, if you want.

This is the main thing, in addition to various user impressions that dispute some of PC Gamer's claims:

http://penny-arcade....on-is-just-fine


A big thing I've read is that the game plays totally differently between Normal and Hard, and the other higher difficulties, that the AI is very stupid on Normal, so you can take that into consideration. I think reviewers usually play on Normal. There are less guards on Normal also.

After gleefully discovering some CK2 patch since early summer got CK2 working on HD3000 graphics Macs, I decided to bite the bullet and grab CK2 Legacy of Rome DLC from GameStop. It wasn't bad. I was able to pay with paypal instead of giving them my CC. I bought on my mac just to see if they wouldn't force me to use the GameStop App to get my steam keys. No Dice. I had to install the GameStop/Impulse client on my machine to get my Steam keys. Overall experience, not bad. Really irked to have to install a damn client to get my steam keys.

Blood Money is one of the best games ever made. I recommend you take another swing at it.

Do note the carnival tutorial level sucks. It's an AWFUL lead. Understand that what it's trying to do is make you do one of everything you CAN do. The real game is sandboxy in style

I gave up on waiting for Absolution keys to start issuing and just bought it, would hate for the 10% preorder discount to expire early. I traded in some free game for 50 cents, too. Great price for a new release, I was reading on Neogaf and people were so mad that PC players could get it for half price.

If you still want to get rid of it, I'll be keen to get it off you. Not in the US at the moment so the GMG deal comes up to about $35.++ for me even after the discount code.

I think the UK version comes with a sniper challenge bonus, fyi. NA ones does not.
