Will Amazon ever get the DLC for Modern Warfare 2? I see they have the Black Ops stuff.

Looking for The Saboteur and Mirrors Edge for $2 each, if anyone doesn't need/want them.

Note: I feel like I'm always piggybacking Fox's posts when bundles are for sale...

I've never played Eve, but I've been around MMO's long enough to know it's a very good game. If you're into the Galactic Civ/X3: Terran Conflict, or think you'd enjoy a sandbox space type MMO game, then $5 for the complete collection + a month of play is a pretty good deal.


P.S. I have no idea how to post to slickdeals. Maybe someone else could? :)

That's the thing that I don't like most about these MMO's - the "pay a (usually monthly) subscription fee so you can keep playing factor."
I like just buying a game - and I can play it whenever I want, offline or online.
I'm not fond of the MMO's "always online" factor, though...b/c you know once a MMO's plug is pulled, your game-rental is now over (see Tabula Rasa and the controversy going on w/ City of Heroes).

I kinda want to pick this up but have some concerns over just getting started in a game that has been around for such a long time.

I like the sound of how deep and complex the system is, especially with being able to do corporate and industrial career paths. My concerns is at this point there are so many long term players that controll everything it would be near impossible to really do well.

For Eve, its best if you have a friend who will play with you or (best scenario) someone who is already a well established Eve player who will guide you and teach you how to play. Reminds me a lot like DayZ in that players will prey on the noobs and weak if possible. ITs part of the appeal I guess.

Popcap bundle says it requires Origin. Is that a new thing? I don't recall those games requiring Origin in the past.

I already have them on Steam and as mentioned PvZ is going to be free anyway for Halloween so not such a great deal but I'm just curious on the Popcap/Origin thing.

I wonder if people will be able to harass EA reps to activate the Popcap games on Origin now.

I'm planning on getting the EA Pack from Amazon. I already have Mirror's Edge and I've played Bulletstorm. If anyone wants them for $2 a pop please PM me. I know a few have asked for them so the first to PM gets 'em.

Would it be possible for me to get a refund on a game I've already redeemed and played on Steam if it's absolutely unplayable due to horrible optimization?

The Amazing Spiderman constantly drops below 10 FPS on the lowest possible settings, and that's indoors. It's even more brutal outdoors.

I have some concerns over just getting started in a game that has been around for such a long time.


The pack mentions it comes with a booster to train faster. I have heard that it can be tough to get going in Eve. If you're interested I'd recommend looking over the new player forums and researching guilds before activating the game. Take a day or two to try to get in a guild will help ya a ton.

That's the thing that I don't like most about these MMO's - the "pay a (usually monthly) subscription fee so you can keep playing factor."


Generally speaking you will find much higher quality gaming with subscription based MMO's over FTP. From my experience FTP MMO's are just plain bad. If you just want to kill some time? Fine, have fun. If you want to immerse yourself in a well made game then you want to pay that subscription. The only exception is Guild Wars, and the jury is still out on their cash shop(Also Guild Wars focuses on PvP).

I like just buying a game - and I can play it whenever I want, offline or online. I'm not fond of the MMO's "always online" factor, though...b/c you know once a MMO's plug is pulled, your game-rental is now over (see Tabula Rasa and the controversy going on w/ City of Heroes).


Fair enough :) There have been some sub-based MMO failures, but to characterize the whole genre by those failures isn't fair. EA is still releasing new content for Ultima Online (which I was playing in 1998). Sub-based MMO's are just as good of a value ($ spent per hour played) as anything else around here.

Furthermore, there's something that most good sub-based MMO's offer that you can't get anywhere else(hint hint Indie Devs). It's the reason I love MMO's - Raiding. Sure, there are lots of games that offer co-op, but there's a big difference between co-op and raiding. It's like the difference between playing catch and playing on a baseball team.

@Serpahym

I'm speaking from a consumer stand-point, of course.

Don't get me wrong -- I understand why these companies charge sub-fees on MMO's: making these (MMO) kind of games can be EXTREMELY expensive and they do have to try to recoup costs REALLY fast, or else they'll go under...and so will the MMO.

I think why Guild Wars series, many Turbine games, and others don't have sub-fees is b/c they can't compete w/ WOW. A LOT of gamers seem to pay that recursive WOW fee ($15 per month), whether they play WOW that month or not! I'm sure gamers don't want to have multiple sub-fees going for all kinds of different MMO's - and designers of other MMO's know this. Also, since many MMO's are copying WOW's formula - no wonder gamers eventually go back to WOW...

edit: nvm, didn't even bother to try Bulletstorm with what everyone was saying, worked fine when I put in the code. Merc 2 is a no-go like you said tho.

Bulletstorm worked for me too. I contacted Origin support and they activated Mercenaries 2 for me with no issues at all and within minutes. Great support!

That being said if anyone wants Burnout Paradise for $2, please PM.

Thanks for the deal. Sold Mirror's Edge already too! Just working with EA right now to get Mercenaries 2 added. If anyone wants Bulletstorm for $2 (via Paypal) please let me know! I've played the game on the XBox already and I'm not too interested in owning it for the PC.

Origin CSR is allowing me to activate Bulletstorm and Mercenaries 2 just by giving them the activation keys. The experience is interesting however:

you:thanks!
Sandeep:
There is no need to say thanks
you:
ok

They are trained to be obscenely nice and overly apologetic. They will send you a coupon when you are done too. I've never had a problem with Origin CSR.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I was thankful when they helped me activate a game and the guy was the same way. No need to say thanks... thank you so much for being a customer, etc. etc. etc.

Translation: EA still wants our $ and actually wants to compete w/ Steam.

Good!

More competition, the better....as long as every digital distributors sticks around or more competitors pop-up, then great. :)

I am willing to sell the Saboteur or Burnout Paradise for $3 / ea, Mirror's Edge $4. Paypal. PM me if you are interested.

And the reason for the prices is that I may want to play the games. So if you want the games for $2/ea, buy the bundle!

Thanks!

Jesus, the Jets suck. Why won't they play Tebow for the garbage time in the 4th since they are down 0-27.

Waste of a perfectly good QB controversy.
