Tony, is there a way to separate credits for the fiesta game and Software/Video Game downloads?
the credits page just lumps both of them together, it's confusing

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but if not, our friends at slickdeals noticed that Far Cry 2 is selling for $2.50 with eligibility for the $5 January promo code

What is the DRM on Far Cry 2?

Ok, Seraphym just bought the Sega Genesis bundle and got Sonic 3D Blast with it. So, if you buy it now the key for the first pack should activate Sonic 3D Blast. I'm guessing early purchasers are the only ones that didn't get it.

I just activated my purchase from yesterday (maybe late morning/early afternoon) and I got Sonic 3D Blast as well.

I saw this in my rss feed and figured Id share it:

Amazon offers a $5 off $25 Amazon credit for free when you answer a question and post it to your Facebook page. (The credit will then be applied automatically to your Amazon account.) That's tied with our mention from two weeks ago as the largest such credit we've seen from Amazon. Limit one per person. Credit expires December 9.

I wish the runscape bonus was still active. My son was digging the squeel stuff, so I was buying stuff with that in mind. This new bonus is a yawn!!

If the promotion is tied to the link they send you, you can have mine. Pretty sure it's tied to the Amazon account though. Don't know how the spins work in Runescape, but I can create a dummy account with the spins and give it to you if you want. Or if you have an extra (empty) account, I could credit them there.

Got a question that might be answered: Will all of these $5 promotion coupons stack?

One per purchase. Can't get a $10 game free.

Possibly DRM free on Far Cry 2. I got it early this year as part of a buy one for $5 and get one Ubisoft sale, all DRM-free. They may now be distributing a different version now, but I can download a DRM-free one from my account.

If we do buy Hitman: Absolution, any idea if there be a $5 credit gained for next year's BSO?

Torn on Far Cry 2. The reviews on Amazon make it sound HORRIBLE, yet it's got a relatively good Metacritic score (85) while the user score is much lower (5.5).

Any thoughts on it here?

Far Cry 2 suffers from AC1 syndrome - main quest stuff's good; meanwhile a lot of the side quests are copy & paste and repetitive.

While I did like it, I was disappointed w/ it overall. Didn't live up to the hype.

But what did you pay for it? For $2.50 + $5 coupon code...

From the steam thread:

RE: Far Cry 2

Chalk me up as another who didn't like it. I knew I should have liked it. I know I wanted to like it. For some reason I just didn't. I gave it multiple attempts over periods of time and just couldn't settle into it. I don't know if it was the locale, the traveling or what. I wouldn't call it bad by any means. It didn't leave a bad taste in my mouth, if anything it was like water and left no taste at all. Though Far Cry 3's gameplay does have me intrigued enough to keep an eye out for it possibly this time next year.



Yet I did just re-get it from GG when they had it on sale to give it one last shot hoping maybe my tastes have changed. Though I don't have high hopes. Maybe I'm justnot that into that open of a world shooter.

It was not too long after release, around one of their BF sales in 2008.
$17.50 from Amazon (Retail), if I recall.

For $2.50 + $5 coupon code...

Oh, it's surely worth that!

Don't waste your money on FC2. The best part of the game was the setting and graphics. Having to deal with respawning outposts was beyond annoying (think clearing an out post of like 15 guys, drive down the road for 15 seconds and turn around go back and outpost has all the guys back again). Not to mention you get malaria for damn near anything and guns jam way to frequently.

Save the few bucks and put it towards Far Cry 3

Let's see what I've learned from the last couple of pages. People like Hell Yeah even though metacritic professionals didn't. People didn't like Far Cry 2 even though metacritic did.

Sounds about right.

You know what they say about accounting for taste. I recently read a post complaining that Far Cry 3 took away what was good and unique about the masterpiece that was Far Cry 2.

Don't get me wrong, I liked FC2...
...I just didn't love the game.
It was just DISAPPOINTING and overhyped - just like AC1.

I'm really looking forward to FC3, though...once it price-drops enough to suit me, of course....

I don't know what was so good and unique about FC2.
It certainly wasn't the story; and it certainly wasn't copy & pasted side quests.
The performance on my (then) PC, bugs, and broken quests were crappy before Patch 1.01 dropped.

White Gold was better than FC2, IMHO.

Ok, Seraphym just bought the Sega Genesis bundle and got Sonic 3D Blast with it. So, if you buy it now the key for the first pack should activate Sonic 3D Blast. I'm guessing early purchasers are the only ones that didn't get it.


I didn't get 3D Blast with my purchase. =/

Looks like these two mods pretty much make Far Cry 2 both playable and amazing looking:
