Gotcha. Just thought we were sharing tracking techniques, guess I jumped in the middle. But yeah, that's just silly. Easy is kind of subjective anyway. I find it easier to drive a manual transmission because it's more natural for me, others might disagree.


Yeah I didn't realize you weren't the original poster. Got a little bit mixed up there.

Even if something is more natural for you though, there is a certain quantifiable ease to things. You might be used to something, but an automatic is still going to be easier to drive.

True, Unless you have any 1-Click settings turned on, or have Pin-Less Debit card transactions turned on. Turn both of those off (1-Click has it's own section under account settings, but you'll have to go to "update credit card" to op out of PIN-Less Debits for that card. If any of those settings are turned on, you WILL NOT get a 2nd confirmation screen (the one that shows any credits that will be applied) and it instantly charges. Just an FYI.


Good to know. When I first entered my cc info it did say that the card I entered would be used for 1-click, but since I get the confirmation screen when I click the buy button, and I have to click another confirm button for it to go through, I guess it isn't technically set to 1-click

I'm sure this has been discussed at some point, but I couldn't find it anywhere. If Steam puts Hotline Miami on sale for $5 again, will we be able to get it from Amazon for free with the $5 coupon?

I believe Tony mentioned under those PM situations it would be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Tony said he doesn't have a good answer for that yet. Not sure what that means, but that's what he said.


EDIT: Or that. I heard something else, I guess.

Yeah, the big thing about this is that EA supposedly optimized the older games to run well on newer systems (XP/Vista/7/8). I actually have disc copies of most of the games I'd be interested in, but the last time EA slapped a collection of these games together, there was zero optimization and I can't get the older games like Tiberian Sun and the original RA games to run worth a crap on my computer now. However, $25 is way too steep a price to pay to play games I already own, so I'm going to have to wait for a much better sale.


I took a look at a few Youtube vids, and I came back with the same impression I probably always have: I doubt I'd ever bother playing the games. It just doesn't look like my cup of tea.

The only thing that makes me take pause it I watch the vids... and don't quite fully understand what all the heck's going on, how you are controlling what I am seeing, etc etc. Since I am not fully appreciating how the gameplay mechanics work, I feel it's something to not completely ignore with trying.

$25 is a pretty steep price for a trial, though.

Hmm nice didnt even realize I had any $5 coupon codes but apparently I have at least two of them. Bought the Desert to Sea Bundle and will probably get Hotline Miami I guess.

Probably shouldnt have bought the desert to sea bundle since all I wanted was Spec Ops and I think I read that game alone is going to be $7.50 soon. Oh well.

I could of swore it said I get 5$ for buying roller coaster tycoon and dark souls was on that list. Even if I'm wrong I now have another problem, it doesn't recognize I bought roller coaster.

I got an email saying:
Did 'Rollercoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack [Download]' meet your expectations? Review it on Amazon.com

Email to the account i logged in, also has my name on the email. I click to rate it, and it also isn't appearing.


You probably have more than one Amazon account under the same email. No, they can't be merged. It's a feature, not a bug.

So does the Secret World have a monthly fee? Think I read someone say it doesn't, but when you look under the details it says it does have one so asking for clarification before purchasing. Thanks!

No it doesn't. I'm wondering if recent buys are still getting the bonuses.

I have $54.98 in credit but there's nothing I can really do with it. $5 off per-item isn't that great. anyway I could send that credit to other people.

It's free, with optional subscriptions, purchasable content packs, and microtransaction goods.

Just to make sure, tomorrow we're expecting to grab The Darkness II and Spec Ops for 5 bucks both after applying the EC coupons, right?

I'm thinking about using my last promo code on TSW. I've never played an MMO before. Is it a good one for a first timer to jump into?

So basically it's a F2P paid game. :-&

Tony said they'd be $2.50 each in a couple days after the coupon.

Uh, maybe not. It's rather complicated and has a steep learning curve compared to most MMOs.

That said, we've got a strong group going, so you wouldn't be alone, and I'd say it's worth learning.

It's free, with optional subscriptions, purchasable content packs, and microtransaction goods.

That's a little misleading, actually. The microtransaction and content packs are almost ALL cosmetic, while the subscriptions running are pretty useless towards actual gameplay as well.

The game is NOT P2W (pay to win).

If you don't mind it requiring Origin, I'd say go for it. Personally, I'm hesitant because I don't want to install another client (especially just for one game.)

I had a few games on Origin for a while, namely Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, and Dragon Age 1 and 2. That is, before they made half of their games free. Now I've got like 48 games on there, so it's no biggie.

Please give away free games again, EA.

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

i already have way to many games
it WILL go free to play eventually
but it is one of the reasons i got a gaming laptop (along with guild wars 2 which i already have and have played for about 30 minutes)

I'm in your boat..although i already bought it and started playing. it takes some getting used to but could well be worth the effort.

the hardest part for me so far was mapping the keys...so many...and i totally re-mapped into a terrible configuration. may go back to the default.

Because I have some extra Amazon credit, and I missed out the last time it was on sale... next time Guild Wars 2 drops to about $29.99 or less, I'll be purchasing it.

Tony, can you make that happen? :P

Just tear the bandaid off and get it over with. I wanted to have only Amazon DRM free + Steam but I would miss out on too much.
