I did this a few days ago from my desktop to NAS and NAS to Laptop and had no problems.


That's why I said it was user error.

I think its just a Bioware thing, because you can buy Kingdoms of Amalur DLC on amazon. I was in the market for the ME2/ME3 DLC and I could only find it through Bioware if I bought Bioware points and spent them through the Bioware site (though ME3 lets you do it through the Origin interface.)



Amalur they pretty much just financed and published and were mostly hands off with though.

There are other EA games with DLC you can only get through EA. Off the top of my head Sims 3 comes to mind. That one is still on Steam because it was grandfathered in before Valve changed their terms.

I wouldn't be shocked at all if this is something you start to see more and more of from EA in the future.

Hey tony any chance of bringing the prototype pack/bundle back? :)


Definitely would like to see this return too and added to the EC list if possible.

So remember folks, last day for sale prices for a lot of stuff: Xcom, NBA2k, Borderlands 2, Spec OPs: The Line, The Darkness 2, and all the 2K packs.

Also to the person who was disappointed about missing Dark Souls, they dropped it back down to $20, not as good a deal as it was previously ($18), but better than $40.

Hrm, thanks for the heads up. Pondering The Darkness, but I only have 2 coupons left, and I wonder what's coming up later in the sale. (MotN for 7.50 before coupon? Please?)

Tony,

Will we have Disney packs (the one with Pure + Split/Second + Tron and the family pack which contained Lego PotC, PotC and other games) added to EC?

Also some hopes on the rest of the Lego games?

TSW update regarding copying files to another computer:

Just attempted to copy the default C:\Funcom folder to an external and move it to another computer.

Ran into an issue, when copying - Saying it couldn't find the H:\Funcom\The Secret World\RBD folder. Did this for 15 files. Only copied 20 GB.

Transferred to other computer, ran ContentPatcher.exe, verified files, and then started downloading 9 GB worth of files.

I would imagine that others will have a better success rate at this as I think my external drive was running out of space and didn't know where to put the rest of the files. Either way, 9 GB as opposed to 30+ is still considered a win in my book.



Yeah, your drive ran out of space. There are something like 35 .rdb files in that subdirectory, and they're all 1GB in size.

Still, it's good to know that the launcher knows how to verify the local installation and only download the missing files. Some launchers just start all over if things aren't perfectly perfect. (Right, Steam? ;))

The price points for fable 3 and aoe3 have been too high in steam so hopefully Tony can drop them a bit. I realize these are the latest available PC itterations but given how much game you can now get for $5, I think these need to drop to that or below for me to pick them up. Again comparing it to what we're seeing from Tony sales at that price point.

also Tony -

how come no one has the original age of empires games? an age of empires 1,2,3 complete at $5 and maybe even $7.50 will be very hard to pass up. thanks!


Seriously. I pass on Fable 3 at 12.50 every time Steam prices it at that. I don't see why this game never goes below that price. I'm guessing it's Microsoft's decision.

This. I had coupons reserved for Scribblenauts and Lego LOTR, and would have pulled the trigger at $7.49 net -- basically the same deal as was available during December.

So... hey, I've got two more coupons available, and they're getting rather toasty in my pocket! Tony, let the other publishers know that they can have WB's money, if they put the right deals in place! :whee:

That's standard for MMOs. Steam sometimes has OMG-huge patches because some games pack most of their content into a few large (GB or more) files and steam is pretty simple/dumb in that if something changed in a file, it redownloads the whole file. This is in stark contract to the efficient rsync updating that Dropbox and others do.

Decided to just go for Spec Ops in this group. The Crazy Action pack was a little tempting, until I realize I had Borderlands free with PS+, and that was the most attractive game in the bundle, so I'll wait to see what I can use my last two on. (I'm still hoping for Crusader Kings II for $10 before coupon.)

Tony,

TERA is going Free to Play In February, but there are some benefits to purchasing a copy now (extra bank slots, etc). I'd like to pick one up from Amazon on the cheap, and I'm sure lots of other people would like to as well. I also need a copy for my girlfriend, so if you brought back that 2 for 2 promo, I'd jump. Otherwise/also something using the EC credit would be amazing.

For the record, I don't think I'd pay more than 7.50 per copy post-coupon.

Thanks! Hopefully TERA is interested in working with you to move some copies before the switch over.

Great news. Maybe it was just my perception, but it seems like you were able to get better deals for this show than usual. Is this something you can comment on one way or the other?

This is changing with the shift over to the new data format that a lot of games are asking you to update to if you haven't launched them in a while.

We sold it for $4.99 for the past month and a half or so, we likely won't revisit a sale on this before it goes free to play.

Sure, the easy explanation is that it is almost always easier to get deeper discounts for a shorter time period, and 2 hours is pretty short :).

EDIT: Also, I know you guys like cheap stuff...here's free stuff!

I'd go for this. With the switch to F2P and the bonuses that being a "founder" gives you, I'd be interested in giving a try if the price was right for the dd.

I wish it wouldn't lock up the whole Steam client while it does this though. :(

Also, Tony, still waiting for word on Warlock and its DLCs. :) And is Battle for Graxia coming back to GameConnect?

Q: Any chance of seeing Guild Wars 2 on sale again this month? I was thinking of picking it up in the Xmas sale but figured it would be a likely candidate to be on sale + $5 coupon in Jan. Was just wondering if we might see it at $30 again, or even $35 w/ a coupon option. I'd pick it up for sure.


I'd also been wondering this. I already own the game, but I have three friends lined up that would eat it up at $30, or even anything below $40.

Currently Playing:

:xb1: Halo: Master Chief Collection, Final Fantasy Type-0

No plans yet, I'll hit up Ubi though.

I'd love to see you bring back some $4.99 deals from Ubisoft like Amazon had on Christmas day. I was unable to use my Ubisoft coupon to get one of those games for free because I didn't have Internet access on Christmas.

Tony,

Maybe I missed it but did Sega get back to you? Would really like to pick up the other half of Shogun 2. Fall of the Samurai I think its called. But I'm surprised they wouldn't at least want to get the Sonic games on the EC. I'd pick up Generations for the right price ($10 after coupon).

I think some of the other folks have mentioned a Dead Space bundle, since the third one is coming soon.

As far as the preorder promo is concerned I would go for the Amazon credit, so it could be used on anything. I basically do all my non food shopping on Amazon, so I'd use it for sure.

Thanks

Yeah, there is Shogun 2 Rise of the Samurai, Shogun 2, and Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai, each about 400 years apart give or take.

And totally off topic, but I grew up in Woodbridge, VA. Not a city I've seen mentioned too much 8-)
