I wouldn't expect zomboid to hit a bundle while still unfinished.


A few bundles now have been for Alpha/Beta builds so you never know.

Give it time. Sometimes it takes Indie Games forever to be indie bundled. I mean Super Meat Boy took about a year to get Humble Bundled.


I'm sure I've read that you're buying now at a lower price because it's still in Alpha. I paid £4.99 a few months ago.

I'd be surprised if they went the IR bundle route, I think they'll make enough cash on their own.

For what it's worth, I liked what I played but it's still very unfinished. I've basically forgotten about it until we get a nearly-finished build.

Well, IR had an Alpha bundle earlier this year and everyone though PZ would be in it, but it was not. I've been tempted to buy it for $7.99 several times from Desura but I don't really want to be messing with an unfinished alpha.

Anyone have a guess what MSRP for PZ might be when it gets on steam? I'm thinking no more than $29.99 which would put it at $7.50 for a 75% off sale. $19.99 might be closer to it though, which would then bring it to $5 if it goes 75%....

I don't think it will go over $20. I was thinking more in the $10-$15 range.

Yeah, I was expecting $10-$15. Just because of the graphics and whole point and clicky nature of it. Not that that's a bad thing, but I don't see the average consumer spending more than $15 on something that looks like it was made in 1998.

As well as the Voxatron HiB were the only two alpha bundles I remember.

I did buy mcpixel for 1.00 though...hopefully the dev hands out steam keys for it. I imagine he will


I wouldn't be so sure. He's a guy who names himself after his own game and charges $300 for it during a developer benefit event, "because he may" after all. Pretty hypocritical of him to even want his game on Steam after being in an event to boycott third-party distributor pricing.

Ah, good ol' Voxatron. I don't expect that game will be released for another year or so. Oh well, at least I got Binding of Isaac in that 'bundle.' Also reminds me of Cortex Command that was in the first Humble Bundle like three years ago and is still in beta.

If it's anything like the PSN version, it sucks.. I got it on PSN back when it was free.

F1 2012 is up for pre-purchase, with 10% off. This time there's a demo!

I wish they would offer more discount for owners of F1 2011.

Ragdoll Kung Fu STILL has "Level Editor (Coming Soon)" on it's main menu.

Definitely more gimmick than game. Bought in my foolish years of falling for crap like that

Well figures, it appears this was suppose to only be a "region specific" promotion (no duh :lol:) as the game is now Unavailable for me (still shows on my account but can't play or re-install)

It's not like he's the first guy to make an against-the-grain, egotistical joke. I can understand if it rubbed you the wrong way, but I don't think it's necessarily indicative of his character.

In fairness, he also offered his game for PWYW, and even gave permission to pirate it for free if you couldn't afford it or paypal wasn't available to you. He also welcomed postcards from fans of the game. Maybe he's trying to get the game on Steam for the fans rather than himself?

I haven't even played the game, or know much about him, but definitely respect the things I mentioned above.

He also stated (didn't promise) that if it's possible he will provide Steam keys to those who bought the game during his promotion (or anywhere - I think.)

Had to give in and install Origin for the first time to try out the FIFA 13 demo.
Of course, their download page was down when I needed it, but I eventually got the demo and then decided that I need to cancel my FIFA 13 pre-order.

This is a partial quote from the chat I’ve just had with their customer service:

Rahul S.: What is your Billing address and the date of birth?
you: Address: ______________
you: Date of birth: ___________
Rahul S.: I'm afraid but the date of birth provided by you is not matching with the date of birth stored in our database. Please provide me the correct date of birth.
you: There must be an error in your database
Rahul S.: No, our database is accurate.
you: Ok, there must have been an error when I was originally inputting my date of birth in your database, because it is ___________. Is there any other information you can use?
Rahul S.: Let me check.
Rahul S.: You have played FIFA 12?


By the end I managed to get the order cancelled and also learned this:

you: Ok. Could you please update my date of birth to the correct one as well? It's _________.
Rahul S.: The date of birth cannot be update on the account as there is no option available at our en.
you: I couldn't find this option on my end either. How is it possible to update it?
Rahul S.: The4 date of birth once registered it cannot be updated.


Seriously, EA? :) Needless to say, I’ll be uninstalling Origin this evening and I’ve had to send an email to them to request the deletion of my EA account. That's the only way to update one's birth date, apparently.

Not that their support is much better, but thank god for Steam and this thread!

Weird. Oh well at least I got to play 20 minutes of it and that was more than enough for me.

It's unfortunate that IO is going the "pre-order" exclusive route with this specific promo (at least that's according to their FAQ)

So I finally tested out Big Picture and I think it has been executed very well so far. I used a PS3 controller and it was very easy to setup. I am looking forward to seeing what improvements are going to be made on top of this.

Nope, haven't even heard of this coupon. It says I've signed up in 2008, probably on a console. Older EA account and Origin are the same thing, right?

Ah, cool. I was just wondering since a ton of people made accounts to try to get a coupon. There used to be a way to get them pretty regularly.

And yes, your old EA account got converted to Origin. I know because I ordered Dead Space from them a long time ago and then it got turned into an Origin account.


Groupees BAB 3 looks great to me :)

More people could use Secret of the Magic Crystals :)

It gets even better. This is the email I sent to EA asking to delete my account and explaining the issue:

I've recently had a problem when I contacted Origin customer service over chat and they couldn't confirm my birth date. Apparently, the one you have on file is wrong and I've been told that the date of birth cannot be updated once registered. Therefore, I'd like to request the cancellation of my account (____________).


This is their response:

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts Privacy Policy Administration.

To assist you further with this issue, we will need some information. Please provide us the following information: -

Account name which needs to be deleted / removed -
Date of Birth listed on your account-
Zip code -

With this information we will be able to assist you in better manner. Please do let me know if you have further issues.

Thank you,
Mukesh N
EA PRIVACY POLICY ADMINISTRATION


I should mention that during the original chat they refused to give me the date of birth that was on my account.
