I wasn't as fond of ME1 as a lot of other people were. I didn't hate...was just ok, I thought. The second one I thought was kind of ho-hum until the assault at the end, which I thought was fantastic. Still have to play the third one. I've avoided spoilers like the plague.

I loved all three ME games, I should note.

And yeah - ME2's End-Game Mission was INCREDIBLE...
though, The Final Boss fight was NOT (meh).
I think ME3 also suffered from having a great final boss fight, as well.

I definitely preferred the Final Boss Fight in ME1.

ME1 is still the best in the series for me.

This might sound like a stupid question but do multiple five dollar credits from the Nov-Dec digital sales stack during the January sale or can you only use one on each January purchase?

Only reason I ask is cuz I'm looking at the games I bought during the sale this past January. Some of the purchases show multiple promotional credits being used and me not being charged for them. Like when I bought Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. It was 9.99. But it shows three promotional credits being applied (4.99, 2.51 and 2.49) so I wasn't charged anything out of pocket for it. I could have swore it only allowed us to use one credit for each purchase but maybe I'm just not remembering correctly.

Hmmmm...wonder what the heck the other promotional credits were then. I didn't have any trade-in credit with Amazon by then cuz I used it all on Christmas gifts. It is showing multiple promotional credits being used on my Total War 2: Shogun purchase too. Was 7.49 but the e-receipt shows credits of 5.00 and 2.49 being used. I wasn't charged on that one either.

That purchase and the NFS:HP purchase were both made on January 1st. maybe it was a day one error.

Hahaha...I remember the stampede to Amazon when TW2: Shogun went up at the 7.49 price. It didn't last very long before it was off the page. Then it shows up a few days later for like 15 or 20 dollars.

I'm REALLY hoping for a nice discount on Kingdoms of Amalur in the January sale. Been wanting to play it.

It was just on some ridiculous sale a few weeks ago. $12 for KoA with a couple of the DLC. That was one of the Gamespot flash sales through amazon so they might revisit it later this month.

Tony I would like to report a "hole" in your system regarding the $5 promotional code. Anyone can actually download a demo and still receieve the $5. I'm not sure if this is intended or a glitch in the system. To fellow cheapassgamers, please don't regard this as a kill joy move. I did this because I don't want Tony to lose his job. :(


Good of you to give him a heads up. Maybe next time we should PM him rather than post it out in the open since lurkers will probably be trying to exploit this.

ME3 is great, if you ask me.
It's the last 5-10 minutes that are pretty terrible - and well, that can't take away everything that the other 50+ amazing hours that I spent w/ that game gave me.
While I absolutely understand and agree that the ending(s) were terrible {rushed, felt incomplete, lacking closure, felt too brief, etc} -- the rest of the game was stellar, for the most part.



I found that ME3 lacked a lot of choice when compared to ME2. ME2 was so different in tone to ME1 that I have a hard time comparing them, but definitely it felt like ME3 was a more streamlined, action-esque take on what ME2 was more RPG-ish about. Perhaps it was the war story that kept Shepherd from exploring as much, from doing things unrelated to the war. I mean, that makes sense, but it also seemed to narrow the game's flexibility.

I felt like, coming away from ME3, that the game had sacrificed a lot of left-based dialogue options to keep you moving more quickly and that in ME2 you spent a lot more time talking, asking sometimes seemingly pointless questions about pointless topics (apparently) like dark matter/mass and those things seemed to be building from the first game to payoff in the third...

Then those side topics all just evaporated and all we were left with was Reapers. Reapers. More reapers. I'd love to see a total count on the number of times my Shepherd said something like, "We have to stop the Reapers!" and "We have to build the crucible!" Just over and over, he'd travel the galaxy, demanding people listen to him say those phrases.

You'd think by the end they'd be all, "Yeah, we heard about you. You and your loud, desperate rants. We are unmoved by your madness." Someone other than the Council who would deny the existence of the Reapers even if they were being impaled on a spike at the same time...

That said, ME3 was a great game by its own standards. I don't even mind the ending, either one. I think the newer one with all the extra crap (plus the Leviathan conversation pieces you can say to Star Child if you have the DLC which was something like, "I met Leviathan. You screwed him over, too!") add up to a slightly better ending than the original, "You came, you died, you conquered. You didn't get a T-shirt..." ending of before.

This must be the most civilized thread on CAG these days. Nobody running off making a separate thread proclaiming free $5 credits, people intentionally not exploiting it....I mean wtf. You guys on the right website? :p

Cool to see that the promo is live, though. Might have to cave on SR3 now with that as a bonus.

[quote name='rasvelen']Tony how about those who bought prototype 2, darksiders 2 early? Will we get the $5 promotion code?[/QUOTE]

Yeah we'll backfill those before January.

[quote name='wtsutton']FYI...You can get the five dollar promotional credit for downloading the FREE Dungeon Siege 3 demo. Just had the credit e-mailed to me.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='Tallkido']Do i have to download or just "buy" it[/QUOTE]

[quote name='wtsutton']Just "buy" it. I have like ten already. :D

I don't know if it works on the "Game Connect" stuff but it is working on all free demos.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='rasvelen']Tony I would like to report a "hole" in your system regarding the $5 promotional code. Anyone can actually download a demo and still receieve the $5.

[quote name='Dragonsbane']Seconded tony is awesome[/QUOTE]

[quote name='Syntax Error']Well, "$5 off" is a bit different from "$20 off" and the codes aren't good until January so I guess Amazon has time to track and invalidate them if they so choose. So not as bad but I don't want to abuse Tony's work on our behalf.[/QUOTE]

[quote name='yangwenli']Yeah, if these weren't supposed to be for demos (probably weren't), they can just void them really. Most of us probably won't mind assuming we're half reasonable folks and I'd rather not see the prices in Jan be $5 more just because of this.

I do think this promo gets a lot of new people on Amazon DVG since this was the promotion which sorta started all my buying here.

I don't think it's Tony doing it and probably someone on the backend just made it apply to all products rather than doing a search for products > 0.01 cents (or some other number).[/QUOTE]

Thanks for the heads up guys, we closed the hole. We're still talking about what to do about whether or not we're going to invalidate the codes I'll give you guys an update in a bit.

[quote name='Isurus']@Tony, when does the THQ Medley go live? Thanks![/QUOTE]

2:00PM PST.

[quote name='ruuin']Hi Tony, could you put a link to the awesome THQ pack?

Thanks.[/QUOTE]

I will at 2:00PM when the show goes live.

[quote name='darcmin']which games are in the editors choice and how soon can we get this info? i don't want to get a game only to find out it is part of the editors choice.[/QUOTE]

We'll be adding games to the editor's choice often. But we're shooting to have the first batch out by next Friday.

If I recall (and maybe Tony can back me up on this one or clarify), if you used a $5 promo code against a game that was less than $5 then it kept the remaining balance on your account as a credit towards another qualifying purchase. I think the same thing happened to me with Rome: Total War-Gold for $2.49, where I got the game for free after the code but was initially slightly remorseful in thinking that I had wasted half the value of the coupon after seeing what was on tap for the next several days worth of sales.

I was happily surprised to see the remainder applied as a credit against my next qualifying purchase, and I suspect that's what happened in your case as well with these "off" values showing up as credit unexpectedly.

Again, Tony can probably shed some light if I'm mistaken.

This is accurate.

So, here's an example.

You have $5 in credit.

You buy a game that is $2.49.

You get the game for free.

You buy a second game that is $4.99

You get the second game for $2.49.

Once the full $5 is used, if you have multiple credit, you will move on to the next credit.

Cheers,
Tony

Did you buy FTL? If you didn't buy FTL then you are indebted to good games and need to buy Hotline Miami. If you did buy FTL then you should have no problem paying cash money for Hotline Miami too.


What does FTL have to do with good games?
