Speaking of TSW, can I get any suggestions on better ways of downloading it? I have a shitty internet connection that tends to go in and out, and apparently when that happens, it completely cancels the download and makes me restart completely. I'm now trying to download TSW for the 4th time but since it is such a big file, I know my net will derp before it is done. Suggestions? =/


Are you downloading through Amazon? I just downloaded the client from the game website after registering the key and let it download from there.

Hotline Miami sure is something. I fired it up an hour ago and was impressed by the presentation touches. Usually the post-modern "retro look" lacks the charm that inspired it, but this game takes things to a new, cool extreme. That music is really cool, too.

What control method do you folks usually use? I'm using my Xbox 360 controller but I think I might use my KB&M moving forward. I'm not a twin stick kind of person (yet?) mainly because I have done little gaming over the last few years using that play style.


It feels like Twin Peaks the game made during the early 90s. It's fun, and unforgiving but I kind of like that.

That being said, I am an old PC gamer but much prefer the 360 controller in most games. But Hotline plays slow with the 360 pad due to how much aiming and locking on you need to do to be accurate.

Every time I buy something I tell myself to stop but can't... want to buy Hotline Miami but I shouldn't...


PM me if you still haven't already purchased it.

Just to confirm, today is the spec ops and the darkness 2 day, isn't it??? Seeing how MP3 ran out I'm waiting, and can wait a little longer but thought maybe I was confused about the day

Yes, but I believe Tony said it takes ~ 20 minutes for the changes to take affect sometimes

The same thing was happening to me. I've deleted one or two double posts today. Does CAG seem to hang a bit when posting for others, too?

I'll just pretend that I'm playing TSW while on Youtube since the Illuminati is mentioned in the comments for practically every video.

Spec Ops price has flipped, confirmed working for me $2.49 after $5 off EC promotional credit: http://www.amazon.co...iew_asin_detail

EDIT: Looks like Darkness 2 also flipped. Considering Max Payne 3 went out of stock, people might want to jump on these.

I was swearing no less than a minute into my first mission but I kept coming back for more pain. I think the quick restarts help.

Now I can rest in peace.

So when does the installer for TSW actually stop? It said 15.4 gigs....it's still going at 15.7.

All of youtube seems to be blaming Katt Williams' dissent into madness on the Illuminati... unless that is what we are calling crack now, I don't get it.

Is there a way on Amazon to check how many promotional credits you have left?

So, very soon after it hit 15.7 gigs downloaded, it said that "ERROR: Not all resources downloaded correctly, please restart the launcher" which I did. It said a previous install was detected and it was recommended to uninstall that before continueing. I chose NOT TO DELETE, and it is now re-downloading all of the files again....all of them.....all....of....them. Goodnight.

Folder it was installed to says 41.1 gigs. Tried the "Repair Broken Data" button in the launchers options and it did absolutely nothing. 2 minutes of scanning files, just to pop right back to re-downloading everything.

Don't know if it was mentioned earlier but looks like the "2K Strategy Super Pack" is also at $9.99 after coupon. Picked that up! Thank you for awesome deal!

Edit: Price fixed, it's back to 19.99 before coupon/14.99 after coupon

Yeah, it does that. I think those are the updates.

Well I'm happy, got Darkness 2 for $2.50 :) Wish amazon would price match steam on the Total War Grandmaster collection as I'd rather buy it from amazon :P

i think tony needs to get an intern


Interns with a stack of prewritten responses. I'm guessing that the overwhelming majority of the questions that pile up in Tony's inbox could (a) be answered by reading the thread, or (2) contacting Amazon CS. Throw in some canned text to say "Sorry, I can't give you Game X", or "I can't discuss the promos we're working on", and you've probably resolved 99% of his PMs.

Throw a second intern onto thread-monitoring duty, with the same prewritten responses. You'd only have to add a few more stock responses: Amazon doesn't price-match international sites, Amazon doesn't price-match flash sales, the Editor's Choice list will evolve throughout January, and so on.

Personally, I'd rather see Tony have more time to browbeat publishers into awesome sales, than deal with people who can't be bothered to do a minimal level of research into answering their own questions.

Nice find. I didn't want that pack that much, but at that price it's hard to pass it up.

So is Hotline Miami going to drop more or is $2.50 with the coupon the lowest it is going?
